As much as we like seeing our legs look close to super-model status (hey, a girl can dream), it might be time to swap the Louboutins for the loafers. New research has found that high-heel related injuries requiring emergency room visits have doubled over the past 11 years. According to the study, the majority of patients were in their 20s and 30s with sprains and strains being among the most common complaints; and one in five of the accidents also resulted in a broken bone. This isn’t the first study citing high-heel dangers, and the lead researcher quips over how medical professionals have advised against heels ever since the shoe style was invented... 300 years ago. Is this rise in high heel injuries enough for you to kick them off for good? Tell us in the comments!
