Wearing high heels may not be good for your leg vein health.
The higher the heel is, the more they negatively affect the blood flow in the veins. High heels alter the natural walking motion and change where the blood flows and how the muscles contract in the legs. If you wear a shoe with a lower heel it helps build the calf muscle which in turn helps the blood to move through your veins. Wearing lower heels will not only help with existing varicose veins and spider veins it will go a long way in preventing new varicose veins and spider veins from forming.
