heartbreaker for heel wearers

Researchers from England's Manchester Metropolitan have found out why it hurts when we actually take off our heels! Apparently, our heels shorten the fibers in our calves. This makes the achilles tendon shorter and thicker. We just don't feel it when prancing around in our sexy sky high shoes, but when taken off, the muscles are overstretched! Calf muscle fibers are apparently 13% shorter than those who wear flats!

For all you ladies, you can fix this by doing minor stretches. Stand on your tip toes and lower your heals up and down. This stretches out your tendons. It is prescribed to do it about 20 times a day! <3
