Bunion splints stop foot pain from killer shoes

Killer shoes at the 2011 Grammys

What do Kelly Osbourne, Nicole Kidman, Katy Perry, Jennifer Lopez and Heidi Klum have in common?

Aside from attending the 2011 Grammy Awards, all of these stylish celebrities donned eye-catching peep-toe heels as they walked the red carpet on February 13.

While Osbourne, Perry and Lopez went for sparkly, silver platforms, Klum and Kidman chose more colorful shoes to match their long, metallic gowns.

Something else these ladies may soon have in common is foot pain, as regular pump-wearers often find themselves saddled with bunions, hammer toes and fallen arches as a result of their fashion choices. These foot conditions may also pose a problem when trying to wear peep-toes, specifically, since bunions and hammer toes may be a major eyesore in such shoes.

Avoid bunion surgery, instead wear bunion splints

Damage caused by the Christian Louboutin and Alexander McQueen creations can lead to foot pain, but fashionistas may be able to avoid painful bunion surgery by wearing bunion splints or orthotics.

Bunion splints and orthotics may be able to prevent complications like the hammer toes and fallen arches that may occur after repeated wearing of high heels, and may even correct deformities that have already become a problem.
