Kim Kardashian's feet must be the most tortured appendages in the entire country. Maybe the world. Despite her pregnancy swelling her feet to what looks like quadruple their normal size, Kim just can't stop stuffing her swelled tootsies into tight, high-heeled, strangling shoes. It wasn't long ago that Kim posted a picture of her right foot looking like it had been given 40 lashes by some imperial dictator by the name of Givenchy. But then Kim took a break from the high-fashion shoes and was actually spied strolling around in flats. Doctor's orders. She supposedly said: "My doctor has told me to elevate my feet. Can you see how wide and swollen they are? I’ve just ordered a pair of pointy-toed flats."
But that was yesterday, folks. Kim is back to her feet flogging ways.
Kim recently stepped out in a pair of clear high-heeled sandals that were so tight around her swollen feet and ankles that they literally appeared to be cutting off the circulation. Her ankles were practically blue. I. Don't. Get. It.
Kim, you're seven months pregnant. No one would fault you for slapping on a pair of comfy peep-toed flats. Or even some beach flip-flops. Sure, there are people who will make fun of you no matter what you do, but what about your own comfort? Hell, forget the comfort. What about your own health?
Too tight shoes can cause everything from bunions to deformities in the feet that eventually require surgery. Swollen ankles can already be a sign that something is off in your system -- could be a symptom of high blood pressure or even a heart that's beginning to fail. I'm sure Kim is getting all of the tests in the world, but wasn't she already told to stop flying so much, to cut back on her schedule, and to wear flats? She's not doing any of that.
I think every woman has the right to decide what she should do for her health and comfort during her pregnancy -- but this is Kim Kardashian. She makes her living being famous and I make mine writing about the famous. So I get my two cents.
Do you wear high-heeled shoes when pregnant? Did your feet swell a lot?
