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 they want me to buy their product they can make a shoe that fits my foot. I'm not getting my toes clipped or my feet shrunk or what ever else they come up with to wear them.
  • Jimbo 2012/04/26 21:27:36
    I does not seem like an invasive procedure. It's only done for comfort.
    Women love shoes.

    The only purpose of high heels is to have your butt and boobs stick out by forcing you to walk on your toes. High heels make you look like a hooker (which is their purpose) and they are as trashy as tramp stamps. Guys encourage easy girls/prostitutes to wear high heels so we can find you in a crowd. Seriously girls, guys are laughing at you over the heels you wear and are attracted to high heels because it makes you look slutty.

    Interesting & funny points.
  • Rachel TheBorg 2012/04/29 06:49:56
    It may be safe to say that most people who think this is stupid disagree with at least some of the other cosmetic procedures you listed.
  • TheBorg Rachel 2012/04/29 08:19:03
    My point is that if they think this is stupid but not the other cosmetic procedures then they are ...
  • Rachel TheBorg 2012/04/29 14:35:18
    For the most part, yeah, I'd agree. =)
  • HAlex1972 2012/04/26 21:23:29
    If you prefer to wear high heels to please the opposite sex, and yourself, what's the problem with making it more comfortable? To each her own, I say. Think of all the people that spend every dime they earn on dope, which I could care less of they do. I personally, have no opinion on that either.

    Flat shoes are more practical once you become a parent. I haven't wore heels since I had my son...

    And they are fugly shoes anyway. Only worn by fashion victims with more money than sense.
  • maggiemay 2012/04/26 21:03:51
    Some shoes just aren't meant to be worn. While these are cute think about what you're doing to your back, and what kind of shape your feet are going to be in 20 years from now.
  • shiroidenkou1994 2012/04/26 21:03:11
    If you have to get your feet modified in order to wear your shoes, get different shoes.
  • S123 shiroid... 2012/04/26 23:58:23
    That's what I was thinking! if the shoes are painfull, don't wear them!
  • Mariann... shiroid... 2012/04/27 09:18:44
