More working women are kicking off their heels in the name of comfort.

Sneaker sales for women jumped 37% in 2017, as sales for high heels dropped 11%.

The effects of wearing heels for an extended period of time can lead to lower back, neck and shoulder pain--- because the shoes disrupt the natural form of the body.

Some companies are even creating new lines of dressy sneakers to keep up with the trend.
