French fashion okay with feel good footwear

French fashion writer offers tips that may actually be good for feet

French fashion and footwearAn article in the Daily Mail reports that former model Ines de la Fressange has penned a style book titled Parisian Chic which provides detailed guidelines on how to look fashionable and sophistocated at any age.

Surprisingly, de la Fressange recommends flats for all occasions and prefers Converse sneakers over trendy, bunion-inducing platforms.

Wearing high heels with a pencil skirt may be thought of as a classic combination, but the former model discourages the look as it tends to be ubiquitous. De la Fressange said it's best to form one's own style and not to be a slave to trends, while still keeping things fresh and interesting.

"The most beautiful woman is the one who oozes confidence, happy in her own skin - which is Ines de la Fressange down to a crisp white T," wrote author Liz Jones.

WebMD reports that wearing high heels may exacerbate unsightly foot conditions like bunions or hammer toe. So, the French writer's advice should come as a relief to those who try to keep on top of fashion but don't have the feet for platforms.

Individuals who already suffer from bunions or hammer toe may find relief in the use of bunion splints or orthotics, which may help treat the conditions without the need for bunion surgery
