American women are shelving their high-heeled shoes in favor of wearing healthier, low-heeled ones to work, according to a new survey.
Results from the poll of 500 women showed that only one fourth wear shoes with a heel higher than 1 inch to work. Fewer than 3% of the women polled said they wear shoes with heels higher than 214 inches.
