Naomi Campbell’s Bunions
One of the most recognizable models of the 90s is Naomi Campbell. The English model is also an actress, singer, and author. Having been modeling since the age of seven, she quickly became famous internationally. Even after the end of the supermodel era in 1998, she still continued print modeling.
Having a modeling and acting career means having to constantly wear high pointy shoes. Although there is some uncertainty over the exact cause of bunions, wearing high heels and narrow-toed shoes has always been one of the possible reasons, along with heredity, staying on your feet for prolonged periods, pre-existing foot conditions, and arthritis.
Due to the harm that some models do to their feet, walking and standing for hours in stilettos, some not even the right size, many struggle with hammertoes, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, and yes – bunions. Naomi Campbell is no exception.
The worst pair of shoes a woman can wear are pointy ones because these crunch the toes. Combine this with high heels and the result is that the weight of the body gets forced on the toes, resulting in knobby toes, unattractive clawed toes, and bunions. Later on, these foot problems can affect walking and foot pain can become debilitating.
To minimize the odds of getting bunions, never force your feet into shoes that do not fit well. If you already have a bunion, relieve pressure by wearing shoes with enough room. Protective pads may also be worn.
If pain has become unbearable, then you may need surgery. Minimally invasive bunion surgery is a 5mm minimal incision bunionectomy, minimal discomfort, and virtually painless. There is no need to fear the bunion treatment due to pain or scarring. This revolutionary procedure is here and refined at the Family Foot and Leg Center, PA by Dr. Kevin Lam.
