Plantar fasciitis, a condition that results from the inflammation of the fascia that runs across the bottom of your foot from your heel bone to your toes.
Wearing flat, unsupportive shoes, such as flip-flops and old trainers, causes the arches to drop and the ligaments and tendons in the base of the foot to overstretch or tear.”

How to prevent it: Make sure your flats have plenty of arch support; avoid super-flat shoes with thin soles.

Plantar fasciitis can actually lead to the tendons on the bottom of your feet tearing, a crippling injury that will render you fairly incapacitated.

How to prevent it: If you are starting to feel pain along the bottoms of your feet, see your doctor sooner rather than later. And invest in quality flats that give your feet plenty of support.

Wearing flats that they don’t fit properly—especially if your flats are too tight around your toes—can end up leading to some major problems. A seemingly benign (though admittedly painful) ingrown toenail can turn into an internal infection that can spread to your bones, causing massive health problems.

How to fix it: Make sure your toes have plenty of breathing room when you try on a new pair of flats. You should be able to wiggle them around freely and feel no pain.

Flip-flops are more than just fashion no-nos. The dastardly sandals can actually lead to long–term health problems, including misalignment in your spine, pelvis, and knees.

How to fix it: Give up your beloved flip-flops for good, reaching instead for a great pair of supportive sandals.

The biggest problem with flats is the lack of shock absorption that comes along with thin, unsupportive soles.
As your foot slams into the ground again and again, your heel bones take the brunt of the impact, and that can lead to problems over time. T
he most familiar of these problems, of course, is the incredibly painful blisters that form on your Achilles tendon when the back of your flat rubs against your leg; you might think this is because your shoes are ill-fitting, but often it’s because of a lack of sole support.

How to fix it: Get a pair of low-heeled shoes instead of flats. A shoe with a broad, thick heel is often much better for your health than a pair of flats is.

I guess the morale of the heels story low or high is… honestly not sure I know, do you?

    Heels make any outfit look hot. I love them so if flats are going to cause me just as much grief I think I’ll stick with my sky-high heels.
