What in the world is going on with Fergie's feet?
The Duchess of York may have bunions.
UK tabloid The Sun recently caught Sarah Ferguson in an interesting position.
Apparently intoxicated, the Duchess of York was photographed at a recent auction with her thumb in the air and eyes squinted. But that's not the weird part: she had white bandages wrapped around her midfoot, barely disguised by sheer black tights and oddly accentuated by black shoes with rhinestone patches on the toe.
"The reason for Fergie's mysterious footwear was unclear," The Sun noted.
Bunion surgery is unlikely, since that would affect the inner region of the foot near the big toe. It could be that this was the Duchess' attempt at alleviating pain from plantar fasciitis.
The National Institutes of Health reports that the condition, also known as fallen arches, is characterized by a stressed band of tissue on the bottom of the foot.
Fergie may find it helpful to know that bandaging her feet is
unlikely to help. Instead, she should consider orthotics or the Medial
Mid-foot Arch Support Brace from Alpha Orthotics in order to take pressure off her stressed arches.
