Re-Heeling Shoes Helps Walking

Your worn-out shoes can affect your health from the soles of your feet up, says Phoenix podiatrist Arlene Polakof, medical director of specialty care for CIGNA Medical Group. "If the heels or soles are worn out, there's a shift in how you walk," she says. "You get a sore back or sore knees, and it affects your posture."
With new heels, new soles or a whole new pair of shoes, "you'll walk better, your back will feel better, and you'll look better," Polakof says.
