“Barbie feet”, which models, celebrities, and fashion girls have taken an obsessive liking to is the current trend to pose up on your toes to elongate your legs and flex your muscles a little bit. It appears as though you are wearing high heels sans the shoes. This positioning of the leg is nearly identical to the propped up feet of Barbie.
 
Typically, this pose is accompanied by a swimsuit or summer wear since those are the occasions where no shoes are usually worn. From a podiatrist’s point of view, "Barbie feet" are obviously better than wearing high heels because the position of the foot is temporary. Posing with “Barbie feet” can make you look taller and can possibly make your calves look more muscular, but this pose is not recommended for long periods of time because you can get calf shortening and pain and inflammation along the ball of the foot.
 
The doctors at Advanced Podiatry are trained in aesthetic treatments of the foot and minimally invasive surgical techniques.
