Towering heels are automatically associated with fashion icon Victoria Beckham.
But wearing high heels for so many years has started to take its toll on the mum-of-three who is apparently in serious pain with bunions.
Friends of Victoria have revealed she is being forced to put ice on her feet and do daily exercises in a bid to avoid having the bunionectomy operations advised by her doctors.
It's guaranteed the former Spice Girl won't give up her heels though.
"I beyond hate ballerina flats," she says. "I can't walk in them. Unless they're on a ballet dancer doing ballet, I just don't get it. I love heels."
