Women going under the knife to fit into designer shoes


New York: Women are now undergoing surgery to fit themselves in designer shoes through a handful of LA and NYC-based podiatrists. These podiatrists perform procedures specifically designed to help women fit comfortably into designer heels.

Aesthetic toe-shortening, fat-pad augmentation, and toe-lengthening procedures are the most common, according to one Beverly Hills podiatrist, who brands his procedures with names like “the Cinderella” and “Perfect 10!”

A Park Avenue podiatrist offers injectable fillers for cushioning and other injections to tame profuse sweating; another NYC practitioner corrects what he calls Hitchhiker’s Toe (a case of an outsize big toe) but drew the line at one patient’s request: amputation of a pinkie toe to allow for a better fit.
