The Age Most Women Get Injured From Wearing Heels

Sure, we all love heels, but as Harper's Bazaar pointed out, a new study found that injuries from stilettos are on the rise. Researchers at the University of Alabama at Birmingham estimated that 123,355 high heel–related injuries were treated in emergency rooms from 2002 to 2012, and the rate doubled during the 10-year span.

The most interesting part? Women in their 20s were most likely to sustain these injuries, and most incidents happened at home, not at work or out.
