Sarah Jessica Parker Has Permanent Foot Damage from Wearing High Heels
Parker Blames Wearing Cheap Shoes on Her Foot Injuries
Her most famous character, Carrie Bradshaw may have helped to make Manolo Blahnik and Christian Louboutin into household names, but now Sarah Jessica Parker is blaming her permanent foot damage on other brands of high heels.
The 47 year-old actress says that wearing "cheap shoes" while shooting 2011's "I Don't Know How She Does It," "created" extra bones in her feet that cause her constant pain.
'I wore beautiful shoes, and never complained. But then I did 'I Don't Know How She Does It', and I was very thoughtful about my whole wardrobe and said you know, [my character, Kate Reddy] could not afford really good shoes, she would go to Nine West or Aldo," Parker explained to Net-a-Porter magazine.
''So I got shoes from there and the bottom of the shoes aren't leather, they are plastic, so I slipped a couple times, twisted my ankle," the fashion plate says.
''I went to a foot doctor and he said, 'Your foot does things it shouldn't be able to do. That bone there ... You've created that bone. It doesn't belong there.'
While this revelation is by no means a ringing endorsement for Aldo or Nine West, the actress has regrets. "It's sad, because my feet took me all over the world, but eventually they were like, 'You know what, we are really tired, can you just stop - and don't put cheap shoes on us?' ''
Ouch. Don't be looking for SJP to be the new face, er, feet for "cheap" mall shoes.
