As a podiatric physician, one of the most common complaints I hear from women is pain in the ball of the foot and toes. Many of these women are working professionals who need to be well dressed from head to toe on a daily basis. Unfortunately most high heel shoes lack the proper support, cushioning and design needed for all day comfort. This can result in conditions such as painful corns and calluses, hammertoes and neuromas.
