A new study reveals that 90% of women who wear high heels end up with foot problems. But that isn't stopping ladies from wearing fancy footwear.
According to Britain's College of Podiatry survey, more than 40% of women say they'll soldier on through the pain, all in the name of fashion. Only 12% of men said they'd do the same.
And the pain tolerance doesn't last too long. Most women report their heels start to hurt after an average of only about 1 hour and 6 minutes. And the younger the woman, the higher the heels. Around 20% of women ages 18-24 own a pair of 6-inch heels, compared to just 10% in the over-25 age group.
So, why do women love their shoes so much? We conducted our own little poll to find out -- are heels really worth the pain?
