Fashion can be stylish without being uncomfortable. Shoes that are too tight can actually injure your feet.
The American Podiatric Medical Association says tight shoes can lead to development of:
- A bunion.
- A hammer toe, in which the middle toe joint curls.
- Crossover toe, in which the second or third toe crosses over the next toe.
- An ingrown toenail.
- Sores, especially among people with diabetes who have foot nerve damage.
