Walk A Mile In Her Shoes

Screen Shot 2015-04-19 at 2.14.20 PM

Men wearing heels?!

That may not be something you see everyday, but the award winning Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® international men’s march sees hundreds of men walking in high heels to stop rape, sexual assault & gender violence.

Screen Shot 2015-04-19 at 2.12.21 PM

The organization calls it a “playful opportunity for men to raise awareness in their community about the serious causes, effects and remediations to men’s sexualized violence against women.” The Walk A Mile In Her Shoes events open up a conversation that needs to happen in a fun way, asking men who participate to literally walk one mile in high heels to get people talking about what it’s like to be a woman in today’s society.

If there’s one thing that women know about heels, it’s that they can hurt! We think it’s great that men all across the country that are participating in this event will leave understanding the struggles and pain women go through everyday, even just by wearing a pair of heels with their outfit! All participants at these events, male or female, could definitely use a spray or two of Heel No Pain Style to help them walk that high-heeledmile!

Talking about gender violence and sexual assault is so important, and these events are all about preventative education, changing perspectives, and helping men better understand and appreciate what it’s like to be a woman in today’s world!

A Guide to Sneakers For Every Workout

Screen Shot 2015-04-14 at 3.28.48 PMHave you experienced foot pain while working out? Running or biking? Or even just walking? You might be wearing the wrong sneakers. Believe it or not, every workout comes with a specific type of sneaker that is designed to help support your feet and your body through any workout. Wearing the right shoes can help stop pain during working out, and even if you don’t feel any pain now, a good pair of sneakers can help prevent future damage, pain, and injury! 

Does this mean you have to have a million different pairs of shoes for every possible workout? Of course not! You don’t have to break the bank to get rid of foot pain, but knowing and listening to your feet well can help you pick a couple of pairs of sneakers that are right for you and will result in less pain during exercise.

But what parts of your feet tell you what sneakers to buy? Fitness Magazine says to pay attention to the “drop,” or the “the height difference in millimeters between the shoe’s heel and forefoot.”

Fitness Magazine says that a 0 to 4 mm drop “encourages a more natural midfoot strike,” which is ideal for neutral runners. A 4 to 8 mm drop “helps you adjust to a natural stride while providing plump cushioning for high-arched runners or a little stability for those who overpronate,” and an 8 to 12 mm drop “is best for runners who instinctively tend to land heel to toe and moderate to severe overpronators who need extra stability,” as you are more likely to strike the ground with your heel.

All of that running science may be a little overwhelming for you and navigating the multitudes of different kinds of sneakers can be like looking for a needle in a haystack. So to help, here is Heel No Pain’s tell all guide to know what sneakers are best for every kind of workout. And remember, you can always spray away the pain with Heel No Pain Active, specifically designed to help stop athletic foot pain so you can keep moving and stay active!


Neutral runners would like the Asics Gel-Cumulus 16, with heel and forefoot GEL Cushioning Systems specifically designed for your comfort while running.($115;

For runners who like to train in a lightweight shoe that will carry them long distances, the Saucony Virrata 2 is right for you! ($90;

For those who like to run fast, check out the Under Armour Speedform Apollo, which has a wider toe and a seamless heel that allows for comfort and speed ($100;

For ultimate stability and support, the Brooks Ravenna 5 is a lightweight shoe that will provide cushion, stability, and protection for your arch, ankles, knees, etc., so you can run long distances in total comfort. ($75;

For Hitting The Trails:

Built to keep a good grip through anything from wet to uneven ground, the The North Face Ultra Trail is made for comfort in tackling the toughest terrain.($110;

The Mizuno Wave Evo Ferus gives you the ultimate comfort on trails with snug cushioning, as well as providing a lightweight and spacious but protective feel. ($56.98;

For Cross Training:

If you’re looking for the perfect fit, Skechers Equalizer Oasis has a memory foam insole that gives you cushion through lifting, jumping, or floor work that feels custom to your foot. Plus they have a cool, fashionable design! ($75;

New Balance 711 Heathered has a responsive cushion that allows for any kind of workout, which is perfect if you’re not exactly sure how you’ll want to exercise from day to day. This is the perfect every-sneaker, that’s good for anything from lifting and squats to jumping and sprinting. ($80;

For Biking:

With light and customizable comfort, the Louis Garneau Women’s Carbon LS 100 has a unique cable closure system that allows for tightening your laces exactly to your comfort. The shoe also has multiple adjustable features, which helps the experienced cycler get a fit that’s just right for them.

With a “Dynalast” outsole, the Shimano WR83 is designed to keep your foot locked in the most efficient and optimized position for pedaling. Giving you the highest possible amount of power, the Shimano is the difference you can feel. ($200;

For Walking:

The Salomon Cove is breathable and extremely comfortable, with mesh on the outside and a foam midsole. Fitness Magazine testers say it feels like “walking on air.”

There you have it! Those are just a few examples of the different kinds of sneakers that reviewers said were best for different workouts.

The Dynamics of Foot Pain

Screen Shot 2015-03-02 at 5.07.08 PM

From an anatomical perspective, the foot is an impressive feat (pun intended) of engineering with 100 ligaments, 33 joints, 26 bones, 19 muscles and untold numbers of nerve endings all working simultaneously for movement, flexibility and sensation. With so many working parts in play however, the potential for problems is huge, particularly given the abuse we deal our feet and every day.

The most common causes of foot pain are usually due to overuse, injury, structural damage or some combination thereof. And according to the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons about 90% of those are exacerbated by poorly fitting shoes.

Some conditions will improve just wearing better shoes while other structural injuries may require the fitting of an orthotic or even surgical treatment by a podiatrist or other surgeon.

As with any pain, if it occurs after an accident or injury or is chronically persistent,it’s time to seek medical attention. While recovering from medical foot procedures or not-serious but otherwise uncomfortable conditions (e.g. blisters, corns, ingrown nails) Biochemistry’s Heel No Pain can make the going a lot easier.

Structural foot pain sources common to athletes (male and female)

Heel spur. A little outgrowth of the bone that may require minor surgery to shave away, these grow as the bone tries to heal after repetitive stress and inflammation.
Stress fracture. A broken bone caused by repetitive pounding, most often in second and third metatarsals located midfoot, but also common in the heel (calcaneus), the lower leg’s outer bone (fibula), and the navicular, a bone on the top of the midfoot.
Tendonitis. Inflammation in the tendon. This most commonly occurs in the Achille’s tendon.
Metatarsalgia. An imbalance in the long bones of the foot causing extreme discomfort in the ball of the foot. Though sports are the most common cause, metatarsalgia can also be cases by too-small toe boxes in shoes that cramp.
Sprained ankle. A ligament in the ankle that is stretched or torn and the most common athletic injury.

Structural foot pain sources common to too-tight shoes (mostly female)

Bunion. After years of being squeezed into tight shoes, usually pointed,the big toe joint (or less frequently, the joint outside the little toe) becomes misaligned where the toe bulges outward, becomes inflamed and may swell uncomfortably. Bunions also have a significant genetic component.
Hammer toe.Where a toe, usually the second, arches up to look like a claw;hammertoes frequently occur in feet with bunions. A mallet toe, also usually the second, occurs when the bones curve downward as does a claw toe.

Foot pain sources common from poorly fitting shoes (male and female)

Blisters. Painful, raised fluid-filled cavities and the top layer of skin separates itself where there is friction or rubbing. If a blister’s top layer of skin comes off or is removed, there is raw red skin underneath that is prone to infection. If the source of the friction or irritation is not removed, over time the blistered area will turn into hardened, unsightly calluses. Blisters occur in all areas of the feet with most common areas on the back of the heel or wherever there is rubbing.
Corn. Cone-shaped lesions of hard, thick skin with a painful core that form on a toe or a bony prominence where there is rubbing or irritation. Though a corn is a type of callus, all calluses are not necessarily corns.
Plantar fasciitis. Pain in the arch (particularly first thing in the morning) and/or swelling when the thick fibrous band of tissue that connects from the heel to the toes (plantar facsia) becomes weak, irritated or swollen.
Black toenail. Bruising (subungual hemotoma) under the nail caused by pressure or stubbing.
Ingrown toenail. Painful swelling where a too-short nail grows into the tissue rather than outward.
Neuroma. Pain between the third and fourth toes caused by a pinched nerve.

Q&A with Dr. Randal Haworth –

You’ve been quoted saying, “My philosophy is that in plastic surgery there are doctors who have become artists and artists who have become doctors. I count myself among the latter.” Why do you consider yourself an artist first?
Both visual artists and surgeons have superb hand-eye coordination with the vision – both literally in the sense of seeing and figuratively in the sense of envisioning an end result – providing the navigation. Even with my extensive experience and knowledge of anatomy as guides, my first concern is to deliver an aesthetically pleasing, natural looking result. Continue reading

No More High Heel Pain? – ABC 13 News – Featuring Heel no Pain By Biochemistry

Used with Very High Stiletto’s for My Wedding

“I purchased the Heel No Pain spray to use on my wedding day to hopefully extend the time I could be in my heels as they were sky high and I am normally in running shoes… I think it did help prolong my time with the heels. I am realistic… I did not expect to be able to wear the heels all night with no pain from the spray but I think for someone who is moderately used to wearing heels that this definitely could get you through the whole night. It did make my foot a little sticky, which actually helped keep my foot where I wanted it in my shoe.”
