High heels are getting supersized

October 15, 2008

The Wall Street Journal reports heels are supersized this fall.

Designer shoes with 5-, 6- and even 7-inch heels are showing up in shops and department stores.

But the super stilettos have risks, ranging from sprained ankles to back injuries.

And YouTube is full of videos of runway models stumbling in the mega-heels.

Some women even get cushioning injections in the balls of their feet to better wear the spiked heels.
