And studies also show that women who have worn heels often in their life have tons of foot problems in old age. So... what about WALKING in running shoes? Or JOGGING in heels?

So, who paid JKM Technologies for the study or what product do they make? And what about all the additional (validated) studies that show how much damage high heels cause over the years? Why is this crap even given coverage?

And please clarify the last sentence. Who writes this stuff a fifth grader?

"The study also showed that the best way to get around was none of the running barefoot."

Study shows 99% of studies are fronts for self-sustaining abuse of grants and other handouts.

When my wife wears her six inch heels and fishnet stockings to bed, we both get a lot of excercise.

Cool, so I can only imagine the first time a woman tries to run in heals, breaks her ankle, and well, lesson learned right? Where do people come up with this crap, and who seriously has time to develop this theory?

Who thought it was right to compare JOGGING in sneakers to WALKING in heels? This study is obviously not scientific in nature.

In general, walking is better than jogging on your knees and ankles. The heels have nothing to do with it.

And I'm sure your ankles will appreciate it if you step wrong in those heels.

Nickbo would love to be able to wear high heels.
I wears woman's underwear and dresses, but because he has no feet he can't wear the high heels.
