We used to think that the best way to take the pain out of walking in sky-high heels was to sit down. But it turns out more and more women are turning to their doctors for relief. In the procedure, dubbed a “Loub job,” dermal filler is injected into the toe pads, heels, and balls of the feet, where it apparently creates a cushioning effect, nixing the dreaded pain and burning associated with high heels.The Daily Mail recently reported that the popularity of this procedure, which costs about $600 and lasts about six months, rose 21 percent in England last year.
Our first reaction was, have none of these women heard of shoe inserts and a foot massage? Then again, heels these days can run upwards of a $1000. If you’re going to spend a small fortune on your feet, what’s little extra—and a needle stick—to ensure those heels are comfortable?
What about you: Would you modify your feet for a pair of Louboutins?
