(HealthDay News) -- Fashion can be stylish without being uncomfortable. Shoes that are too tight can actually injure your feet.

The American Podiatric Medical Association says tight shoes can lead to development of:

  • A bunion.
  • Corns.
  • A hammer toe, in which the middle toe joint curls.
  • Crossover toe, in which the second or third toe crosses over the next toe.
  • An ingrown toenail.
  • Sores, especially among people with diabetes who have foot nerve damage.
