Talk about an idea with legs--or maybe feet. Beverly Hills orthopedic surgeon Fred Swerdloff and his nurse-practitioner, Rose Lewis, saw an endless parade of limping patients whose back, knee and ankle pain could be blamed on a single source: high-heeled shoes. So Swerdloff and Lewis performed surgery on the standard fashion pump and came up with an unusual idea. They designed a shoe with a heel that can change height.

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.
