High heels should not be worn every day as they can damage your posture, according to one expert.
Lorraine Jones, podiatrist from the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists, said that although high heels are fine for special occasions, they should not be worn daily.
"Wearing high heels alters your posture, placing increased pressure on your knee and back joints. The height of the shoe elevates the leg, which shortens your calf muscles," she explained.
A Saga magazine survey found that 72 per cent of women older the age of 50 still wear high heels, with many of them no doubt choosing to pair the footwear with legwear
such as tights
Research from Insolia also found that the average woman lasts 34 minutes in a new pair of shoes before grimacing with pain.
Four in ten women revealed they bring a spare pair of pumps to change into because they know their shoes will rub.
