Newfangled Shoes? Women Deserve Better

October 02, 1994

The "endless parade of limping patients" making their way painfully to the offices of orthopedic surgeons and podiatrists will not end with adjustable-heel shoes ("Adjustable Heel Pumps Shoes Sales," Sept. 26). Limping patients are primarily women, and they deserve better, particularly those on their feet a lot.

Shoes should be designed to fit the human foot. Except for sports shoes and clunky, broad-toed shoes, the selection of sensible shoes is slim for women. Unfortunately, sensible shoes are not deemed as stylish as the pointed variety.

I will not purchase the Rose-Lee Beverly Hills Shoes. Manufacturers and retailers have not answered my dreams. After many years in pain, then foot surgery, I prefer shoes that are comfortable and do not maim my feet.

Are any shoe designers interested in creating a new--old, really--style and doing away with the points, even accommodating my A-width, narrow-heeled foot?
