There are few accessories that excite women quite like shoes. Not only are they the key to transforming an outfit, but is there any item in your closet that can make you feel sexier?

Since women are affected by foot problems four times more than men, Dr. Suzanne Levine, celebrity podiatrist and author of “My Feet Are Killing Me” stresses the importance of taking care of our tootsies — and not just for the sake of looking good. “Our feet are a foundation,” she says, “and the way we dress them influences the way we feel.” With an entire chapter devoted to shoe sense, Dr. Levine walks us through how different sole styles affect our health and why many of us are shopping all wrong.
