Can You Believe This? Women Are Getting “Toe Jobs” to Make Wearing Heels Easier

If you’ve been visiting YNS for quite a while now, then we assume you relate the term “toe job” to something about shoes. But for those with their minds in the gutter, it’s an operation where cushioning fillers are injected into the toes, heels, and balls of the feet.

Dubbed the “Loub job” after Christian Louboutin, this op is all for the sake of fashion so that heels are much easier and more comfortable to wear. The Sun reports Brit surgeons are seeing a boom among women getting these foot ops, citing that the number has doubled within just the past year.

It’s no coincidence that the demand for this operation increased the same time 5, 6 and even 7-inch stilettos became the latest shoe trend. Notorious celebrity high-heel wearers like Victoria Beckham have also contributed to proliferation of sky-high stilts.

We’re all for making shoes more comfortable for women with insoles, pads, and gels, but to actually alter your feet with surgery? This just might be where we, as a shoe-crazed community, draw the line.

How far would you go for fashion? A loub job costs about $618 and its effect of lessening the pain from wearing heels last up to six months.
