Women Getting 'Toe Jobs' to Wear High Heels: Smart or Stupid?

What people do in the name of fashion. It seems like every celebrity in Hollywood sports a pair of sky-high stilettos, and they're usually some pricey Christian Louboutins. But teetering around on five-inch heels can be painful. Enter the "toe job."



The number of cosmetic procedures performed on the feet have doubled in the last year, according to new research, The Daily Mail reports. Plus, the number of women requesting dermal filler injections
into the toe pads, heels and balls of the feet has risen 21 percent,
double the same time last year, the paper says.

The "toe job," also dubbed the "Loub job" in honor of Christian Louboutin, is almost painless, and it starts at about $518 and only takes around 20 minutes. It also supposedly creates a "pillow effect," which gets rid of that burning sensation you experience when you've been wearing high heels too long.

However, let's come back to reality for a second: you're subjecting yourself to an expensive procedure in order to wear an overpriced pair of shoes. Seems pretty silly to us ... especially because the effects only last about six months. Do you think "toe jobs" are smart -- or stupid?

    If it doesn't physically concern you and I, then we really have no say in what other people choose to do. Individuals have the right to take care of the matters they are responsible for, especially their own bodies. As a society, rules and standards have been created to give its members ideals to strive for. These ideals don't accurately reflect the reality of every individual. As an example of society failing individuals, the male and female stereotypes aren't suppose to have desires for the same things. Yet, there have been, and the numbers are increasing, men finding they prefer wearing the same styles of high heels women enjoy and women even have their own line of menswear. Is it people that are defective or is it the man-made stereotypes incorrectly reflecting the true nature of human behavior?

    Although I don't like the idea, I believe the toe job is not so their feet can fit into the shoe comfortably, it's so their feet look nice in the shoe. If you don't like the look of ur feet, wear converse or some other closed shoe

    If the heel fits right it wont hurt your feet, if they don't fit right then they will. This is from a man that wear's heels! I can wear of proper fitting heels all day and they don't bother my feet a bit. One's that don't fit right well they don't last long that's for sure, but doing something like this just to wear a pair of shoes is stupid!

    Dumb. Insoles cost 5-20 bucks at a CVS. Besides, of your toes look like a bag of Cheetos you have no business wearing heels anyways.

    As a man I can appreciate a nice pair of heels on a woman,however this is going too damn far. A woman should also be comfortable. There are plenty of shoe options out there, nobody should surgically modify feet to wear shoes.

    If the heels are hurting your feet that much, then why are you wearing them?

    Here we are already 12 yrs into the 21 century and women, continue letting themselves be lead by the nose, like cattle,common sense is no longer an atribute to them all since as females the largest % enjoy hurtting themselves, in order to please stupid men that hate them, since they are the ones that create those ugly shoes, that end up destroying ther toots. and then on top of it all they go to a butcher to fix something that to begin with should have never been deformed, to begin with. inteligent men don lie to their women in order to destroy them, but then again those are the men women won't like and much less love them for careing for them. a man would reather wear old shoes that are cumfy to him than to be up to date with fasion. except the girlish men that think that skin deep is love so they let themselves be manipulated by the same trend of fasion.

    Crazy if you ask me! I would rather my feet look beautiful barefoot, then stuff them into a stupid pair of high heel "hell" shoes which only in the long run will cause back, leg and foot pain later on down the line.

    Sure, mutilate your feet even more. This isn't ancient China people. Busted feet are NOT fashionable.

    Celebrities will do anything for the sake of "BEAUTY"!! I believe the shoe industry should be liable for women when they start having problem with their feet after wearing these ridiculious stilettos! These shoes should come with a warning tag,mess with at your own risk! Surgery for your feet,so you can wear "HERMAN MONSTER" shoes is "CRAZY"!! Give me "FLATS" any day,no "TOE JOB" for me!

    This is terrible. It reminds me of Japanese women wrapping their feet to make them smaller. Why do women torture themselves to meet a silly standard of sexual attraction.
