Pretty Face, Dirty Feet

By Erika Echeverria @EvesBK

“Women, please keep your heels on at the end of the night or plan on wearing some that are more comfortable. You spend so much time getting dressed to look nice, often times to only end up drunk and barefoot walking through the casino. Seriously, not a good look” – Las Vegas dress code

We have all been there. We purchase that really cute pair of heels, which we just KNOW are going to cause pain. After all, pain is beauty is it not? Don’t be that girl that ends the night barefoot with cute heels in hand. I see all too often, by midnight, those shoes you so meticulously obsessed your entire outfit over, are now being held in your hand, the corner of a night club, or worse near the DJ booth because for some unproven reason you think it’s “safe” in that area. Your shoes may be “safe” but your feet & overall health is not.

Drinks are poured, and spilled just as frequently throughout the night. The dance floor soon is full of sweaty dancing people. Think of all the people inside of the night club having a good time, some sweating buckets. Take a guess where for the most part, those thousands of sweat droplets land? On the dance floor!! As the night goes on, think of all the things that fall onto the dance floor. Can’t think of any? Here’s a list:

***Sugary alcoholic drinks
***Broken glass from bottles
***Moist candy
***Chewed up gum
***Fecal matter (if they stepped in poo, now so did you)

And lets not leave out the familiar story of the guy who literally CAME to party… and did so all over the floor or some girls outfit

Below are pictures of girls barefoot out & about & a simple solution to the problem:



Let’s cover some of the many “things” you can contract should you happen to walk barefoot at a night club:

**Athlete’s foot – an infection of the feet caused by fungus
**Staph or pseudomonas infection – a group of bacteria that can cause a number of diseases as a result of infection of various tissues of the body
**Highly infectious fungi – such as Onychomycosis (also known as toe nail fungus)
**Hookworm – an intestinal parasite spread through fecal matter
**Bacteria – Single-celled microorganisms which can exist either as independent (free-living) organisms or as parasites
**Dirty looks from potential hook-ups

High heels are for big girls! So learn how to wear yours before you end up as part of the dirty feet club. Invest in good shoes, purchase some heel support, carry back up shoes, or invest in Dr. Scholl’s “Fast Flats”. Going barefoot in the nightclub is gross, not sexy at all, and puts your health at risk!
