This type of boots is very popular around the world, but doctors warn women wearing them about the joint problems these boots can cause.
If you wear these boots, they can cause premature wear of certain joints because the foot is not supported well.
One problem leads to another and the entire body stance becomes crooked, the position of the knees alters and if you wear them for several months continuously, you can damage the cartilage in your knees.
These are the findings of Ian McDermott, the orthopedist from the London Bridge hospital in the UK. When it comes to the cartilage damage, an operation might become inevitable.
McDermott does not talk about any particular brand of boots, he says these problems can happen with any soft boot that does not provide adequate support to the foot.
