andrear@herald-mail.com There's nothing sexy about hammertoes. Those stylish high-heeled shoes that make legs look longer and women stand taller have been linked to hammertoes, bunions and other painful foot problems. And high heels with pointy toes might look chic, but wearing them too much can make feet sick, experts say. "The national obsession with beauty has created a demand for shoes that make the foot seem smaller, daintier and narrower. Narrow, pointy-toed shoes and high-heeled shoes that make the foot look smaller by placing it in a more vertical position are the height of fashion," according to the American Orthopaedic Foot & Ankle Society at www.aofas.

When the Yves Saint Laurent in High Heels and I were in Frisco, we collapsed in the hotel after a long day and turned on the television, where we were treated to a very entertaining show called "Straight Guys with Queer Eyes," or something like that. In this show, five men with fashion sense - if you know what I'm saying - take an Average Guy and try to make him "hip. " With hilarious results, of course. You know the kind of Average Guy I am talking about: Thinks dressing up for a night on the town means tucking in his shirt, sees nothing wrong with sandals and socks, scratches his head with his fork, etc. So the guys with fashion sense dress him up, teach him manners, teach him how to cook a simple gourmet picnic, treat his skin with softening products, take chain saws to his toenails, teach him about fragrances and basically get him ready to behave and look swank for a big date in a Japanese garden.

I'm convinced that the first lunar landing came to pass because Neil Armstrong's wife woke up one morning and said, "This weekend I want you to build a rocketship and fly it to the moon" and he, knowing it would be quicker than arguing, said "Yes, dear. " Which was pretty much the same situation I found myself in when the General Contractor in High Heels (as a matter of fairness, she says she resents this characterization because she "really doesn't wear high heels all that often")

Holding a sign that read, "I am man enough to walk in her shoes," Anthony Council teetered back and forth — trying not to fall — as he attempted to balance his weight in a pair of red peep-toe heels. While his fashion sense of wearing white socks with stylish red pumps was certainly off course, the Penn State Mont Alto sophomore's heart was definitely in the right place as he participated in the campus' Walk a Mile in Her Shoes on Wednesday. The event was part of the 10th anniversary celebration of the international men's march to stop rape, sexual assault and gender violence.

I ran into a friend at a carry-out joint last week, at which point our conversation went almost exactly like this: "So," he said. "What's up at the paper?" "Not much. " "Ag week, huh?" "So it seems. " "Lotta cows on the front page. " "Agreed. " Women complain that men don't talk, but believe me, we can speak volumes in 21 words. It's not that we're less communicative, it's just that we're more efficient. I hate to admit this, but I watched a bit of the Kerry speech during the convention, which was kind of like reality TV, but not as meaningful.

MONTREAL - This city is proud to tell you that it has 38 kilometers (for those of you unfamiliar with the metric system, that's 284 tons) of underground shopping malls. Many readers who are quick on the uptake will have already surmised by now why this was bad news for me. The Retail Sector in High Heels took it as a challenge, nay, a duty, to cover every last inch, with me tagging along in tow like a dingy after a sailing vessel. In the interest of fairness, we always alternate our vacation-site selection and this was, sadly, a selection of mine.

SAN FRANCISCO - Ever since Fox News conclusively reported in April that Saddam Hussein had been killed (along with who he had been talking to when he was killed, what he was eating when he was killed, who was with him when he was killed and what he was saying when he was killed), I have had a hard time believing 100 percent of everything I see on television. So I set out for the West Coast to see for myself what is transpiring in the California recall election and hopefully to score a couple of Arnold for Governor buttons.

Forty years from now, I'll be sitting in the Home and some young orderly will come up and say, "Hey pops, bet you saw the great 2001 Game 7 between the Yankees and Diamondbacks. " And I'll say, "I saw the first half of it. " And he'll say, "But I bet you remember the 'Monday Night Miracle' when the Jets came back from 30-7 in the fourth quarter against the Dolphins.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons lists the following foot problems often linked with high heels or improperly fitting shoes: Morton's neuroma, a thickening of the tissue that surrounds the digital nerve leading to the toes, occurs as the nerve passes under the ligament connecting the toe bones in the forefoot. Morton's neuroma most frequently develops between the third and fourth toes, usually in response to irritation, trauma or excessive pressure. High-heeled shoes and tight, narrow shoes can aggravate the condition.
