W-14--INDEPENDENT-PRESS-TELEGRAM IONO HACH », CAIIF., WNOAT, JAN. 4, m» Taper Toes Kind to Feet It's healthy to be stylish. That's the verdict of America's podiatrists who have had ample opportunity to study the effects of the tapered toe on feminine foot health. A recent, nationwide survey of foot specialists by the American Foot Care Institute found evidence that a well-fitted tapered shoe caused their patients no discomfort, fatigue or foot ailments. Soft, supple leathers that adapt to the shape of the foot, allowing free movement of toes without stiffness or crampin; is the comfort secret built into the new longer styles. Dr. Benjamin Kauth, prominent podiatrist and director of the American Foot Care Institute, noted also that the normal bone structure of the foot is well adapted to the tapered shoe. The longest toe--the second, counting from the big toe --stretches its full length and Jits neatly into the toe of elongated footwear. It is this toe which blunter fashions tend to cramp and curl -- paving the way to a lifetime of nagging pain fend complaint. * * * - v "AS A NATION 1 we are better fed. Plenty of milk, vegetables and meat have added Inches to our bono structure," Dr. Kauth pointed out. "I'm happy that women are no longer ashamed of their longer feet. Styles that face facts are sane." He added one note of caution, however: "The low-cut tapered pump is fine for dress wear. To carry a woman through the day's activities, from household chores and shopping to cleaning up after dinner, foot experts still recommend an all- leather oxford with sturdy but flexible leather soles and uppers." But the finest of leathers and the most elegant of styles can only bring foot happiness when teamed with proper, individualized fitting, Dr. Kauth warned. "A well-fitted shoe should be comfortable, even as you rise for a first glimpse in the shop mirror,' he said. "Grandma's stiff high-button shoes might have needed 'breaking-in,' but not today's footwear molded to the true shape of the foot." Long iMeh · Santo AM ffj Buys for the home ..
