Have High Heels Destroyed Sarah Jessica Parker's Feet?

Beauty & Style 39

Sarah Jessica ParkerWhenever I post a photo of very high heels on this blog, I always seem to get a bunch of comments from women swearing that they'd NEVER wear high heels.

Heels are extremely damaging to women's feet, they say, not to mention dangerous.

Well as it turns out, you guys may be right.

Close-up photos have emerged of the feet of Sarah Jessica Parker, one of the world's biggest proponents of stilettos, and let me tell you girls ...

It's not pretty.

Click through to see the damaging evidence and tell me what you think!


London's Daily Mail caught sight of poor SJP's feet and provided us with a close-up look at the damage that's been done, ostensibly by years and years of stiletto-wearing.

Take a look at the photos here. OUCH.

The newspaper credits the actress with telling an interviewer this back in 2008:  "I’ve basically just destroyed my feet. So they feel nothing. I have no feeling in my feet."

You know, honestly that wouldn't be so bad. I would wear so many pairs of fierce shoes in my closet much more often if it weren't for the fact that my feet hurt after about five minutes of wearing them.

Sarah's veins, however, are another story.

I feel sorry for Sarah, looking at that photo. She's a beautiful woman, and I imagine that the condition of her feet are distressing to her, particularly since she loves fancy shoes so much.

Perhaps we should take up a collection for a pair of these and send them to her to aid in her recovery.

What do you think of this situation? Does it scare you off wearing heels too often?

Heels didn't do that to her feet.

It is bad not to feel your feet.


I had to have bunions removed, I don't wear high heels at all so the consensus was it was a hereditary condition.  I can not feel my big toe or the toe next to it on each foot.  I hate it, it's not fun and I wish there was something I could do to repair the nerve damage.

Stacey. Stacey.

She needs to wear fierce shoes to distract from her face.

those veins arent from feels. That's from age. I worked in a salon as a waxer and a manicurist and ladies' tops of their hands and feet showed their real age. Necks to a  degree too. These areas women don't spend as much time fixing with facials, botox etc...and the skin is more delicate. So sun damaga, age, lack of care make your feet and hands look that way

Her shoes are too small.

Being too skinny means that your veins are more prominent.  Years of stupid footwear choices doesn't help.


I'm 54, have almost no fat on my feet, have done blue-collar jobs all my life that required me to be on my feet all day, and MY feet don't look like that!  It isn't just age, IMHO.

Thudthud88--I'm older than SJP, and my feet don't look anything like that.  It's true that the veins in your hands and feet become more prominent with age, but this is way beyond simple aging.  I know women in their 80's whose feet look much better than this.

Pain is a message from your brain that something is wrong, giving you a chance to correct it.  SJP ignored these signals for years, so her brain basically gave up telling her that she was killing her feet.

I'm with the commenter above - I'm ten years older than SJP and my feet are smooth and nice, nothing like that. I think it's just that she is so very thin; she does not have very attractive hands either.

@Stacey. Come on...you sound like a snarky 13 year old.
