What kind of disability lets you only wear three inch heels?

I am sitting in a waiting area and this lady is on the phone (loudly) telling whoever that she needs to go shoe shopping because her good shoes are worn out and since she is disabled she can only wear high heels.

The ones she is wearing right now look to be about three inches. Crazy if you ask me. Lol.

Oh well. It was good for a chuckle this morning. No skin off my nose.

Maybe with the tendon. Although I have a tendon issue in my foot and I was instructed sneakers only.

One leg shorter than the other would need orthotics with a heel but not high heel dress shoes.

My sil was in a car accident that damaged her foot, she can only where shoes with heals.  Even at home she has to wear shoes.

Lol. Or hammer toe.

She does seem a bit short. Maybe that is her disability

My mother knew someone once that had to have pins put in her ankles which permanently fixed that them at a certain angle.  The only kinds of shoes she could wear were ones that matched the angle of her foot.  She specifically requested they be positioned to fit heals.  Crazy if you ask me.  If I could only ever wear one height of shoes for the rest of my life, I'd want comfortable running shoes!

I had a customer say she had to wear high heels. I don't remember why, but I remember her telling me that she works on her feet all the time and she wishes she could wear regular shoes again. Something to do with her tendons.

Perhaps she means that other shoes wear down quickly due to the way she walks.
