    Bad, but the design, fit, and heel height can make a big difference.

    They don't bother me any. I get more pain from shoes without a heel (the worst possible ones I can wear are things like ballet flats with relatively soft soles.) The shape of the toe box on a shoe matters more than the heel being high (pointy/narrow=bad.)

    More voters please. Mrs Pankhurst's lady friends died to win the right to vote.
