Who would expect to receive fashion advice during a visit to the foot doctor? Funny little story here… A colleague and friend of mine recently scored the best style tip from her podiatrist. Dr. Sanford Weitzbuch, DPM, who also happens to be the go-to foot pro for celebs, recommended this Band-Aid-like guard and says all of his famous clients swear by it when wearing heels for long periods of time, particularly on the red carpet.
We spoke with Weitzbuch for more on why he recommends it and how it works, and here’s what he told us: “The shield is a very conservative treatment for a bunion that is not ready or able to be operated on. It is to hold off having surgery and hopefully prevent it from being necessary at all. It allows the patients to wear a fashionable shoe without any pain, friction, or rubbing.” We’re sold!
Scroll down to shop the $4 item and add a fancy new pair of heels to your wardrobe while you’re at it!
