ANALYSIS/OPINION:

Run an Internet search for “Ana Trujillo guilty” and you will read the gruesome details of how Ms. Trujillo perforated her boyfriend to death with stiletto heels. Search online for “Hillary attacked” and you’ll get millions of websites describing how the former first lady narrowly cheated death when another apparently deranged woman wearing stiletto shoes threw one of the shoes at her.

According to osteopathic.org, the health dangers of high heels (especially stilettos) include hip, back and leg deformations, slips, falls, shortened tendons, strained ligaments, entanglement with automobile brake and accelerator pedals, and fatigue while standing in line waiting for double lattes.

There are even YouTube videos without warning messages featuring women in heels performing death-defying synchronized tap-dance maneuvers that young girls could easily mimic. When will this reckless behavior stop? Isn’t it time for sensible regulation to abolish hazardous footwear?
