The Cinderella Procedure

Women and high heels have always had an unsteady relationship. In 1533, Catherine de’ Medici wore the world’s first pair of high heels, causing a fashion frenzy and making high heels the norm (and mark of stylish distinction) for women in French and Italian courts.  Since then, in the ongoing quest to achieve a statuesque look of perfection, women have endured the indignity and discomfort of shoes that are simply painful to wear.

The so-called “Cinderella Procedure” is a preventive bunion correction that results in a narrower foot. It’s goal is to make it easier for women to squeeze into stillettos.

“It’s unrealistic to tell women not to wear high heels. I came up with procedures that allow the women to function, pain-free, in the real world.” Ali Sadrieh, podiatrist and creator of the Cinderella Procedure, in an article for the Wall Street Journal
