Spring Trend-Onitis

Imagine wearing a shoe with straps so thin they could fit between your teeth. So-called “floss heels” are all the rage this spring, and podiatrists are panicking.

To the High Heel Doctor, the naked-foot minimalism is a mere euphemism for dangerously unsupportive footwear. Ankles can roll, tendonitis begs to set in, unfashionable face plants become likely.

But the fash pack showed some mercy this season as well, with several podiatrist-approved styles on the menu.

Native to dads, glorified Tevas and Birkenstocks are de rigueur on the runways. And Jerry Seinfeld's jumbo white sneakers? They’ve never been cooler.
