Victoria Beckham Sustains Stress Fracture After Whistler Ski Vacation

It seems like no matter what life throws her way, Victoria Beckham keeps on going. Instead of problems with her bunions, this time she sustained a stress fracture during a winter ski vacation in Whistler, Canada.

Not longer after, she had a shoe design meeting and took a selfie standing with one foot in a stiletto and her other foot poised precariously in the air with a walking boot. Victoria never seems to avoid risk, especially when it comes to looking her best.

Victoria has suffered for years with bunions most likely made worse by wearing sky high stilettos. To this day I don't know whether she's had surgery for her bunions, but I hope she has for her sake. I don't know whether her pose for a shoe designer was just a one off or whether she truly has given up heels for flats as she proclaimed in 2016.

If you're like Victoria and take risks with your feet and ankles, stress fractures and other foot problems are bound to come your way. If you have flat feet and your wear heels, certainly bunions are much more likely to be a reality in your life.

To decrease your risk for stress fractures here are 5 easy ways to prevent them. If you have bunions, wearing shoes that are one inch or lower in height and have plenty of room in the toe box can help prevent them from getting worse.
