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?

    As a woman I can say I have no desire to wear shoes that would require me to have any procedure done to my feet whatsoever . Women express their desire to be independents yet follow the trends like a religion. Why? To impress Men or Other women?? Or is it insecurity on their part or just plain stupidity.

    Then you would give up on your chances of seducing a "foot fetishist." Better to just give up on those ugly shoes!

    Give up on the shoes, not the feet! Keep the toes! Your feet will still be beautiful and seductive and your man will go wild over your bare feet!

    If a person insists on chopping their toes off, it would be easier to invite Hannibal Lechter to their home and offering him the toes as appetizers!

    "...was the custom of binding the feet of young girls painfully tight to prevent further growth. The practice likely originated among court dancers in the early Song dynasty, but spread to upper class families and eventually became common among all classes. The tiny narrow feet were considered beautiful and to make a woman's movements more feminine and dainty."

    Even though I like this period of time, I don't think I could ever sacrifice my feet for the sake of being more feminine.

    I love seeing a woman in spiked heels, but some of today's heels are a just a step removed from foot binding.

    Let's spend--at least--600 dollars every six months just to wear those 2,000 dollar pair of shoes. Wait, you need to have more than two dozen pairs of those expensive shoes.

    Not a problem if you break your shoes in, but I guess you'd have to actually wear them more than twice to do that!

    These shoes are gorgeous. Designed by men. Barbaric and tortuous. I love them. They are sexy and glamorous. That said....a woman's foot is not meant to do this. That's why the need for surgery. I wear them sparingly. My toes prefer to be naked as often as possible!!! Yay to barefeet and no to surgery ;)
