It's been well reported the damage that sky-high stilettos can do - the pain, the cost, the difficulty walking. Some women are so determined to continue strutting about in their favourite heels they're prepared to chop off their smallest toe to stay in touch with fashion. Parker, who is best known as popular writer Carrie Bradshaw from the Sex And The City series, has found another problem with the well heeled. I wore beautiful shoes, some better made than others, and never complained. That bone there It doesn't belong there. It's sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, 'You know what, we're really tired, can you just stop - and don't put cheap shoes on us? New Zealand Herald.
