The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of increased heel height in women's shoes on foot pressure during walking. An increase in heel height increased the maximum peak pressure under the metatarsal heads in the forefoot, decreased the time to maximum peak pressure under the metatarsal heads, and increased the rate of loading to the metatarsals during early support. The higher pressures noted with increased heel height were accompanied by a more uniform distribution of pressure… 
The effects of increasing heel height on forefoot peak pressure.
TLDR
Pressure under the forefoot was found to increase significantly with increasing heel height, and as the heel height increased, the peak pressure shifted toward the first metatarsal and the hallux.
Plantar Foot Pressures During Treadmill Walking with High-Heel and Low-Heel Shoes
TLDR
It was shown that high-heel shoes increased the load on the forefoot and relieved it on the hindfoot, and it is suggested that these higher loads on the medial forefoot may aggravate symptoms in patients with hallux valgus deformity.
A comparison of metatarsal pads on pressure redistribution in high heeled shoes
TLDR
The results show that the insertions of all types of metatarsal pads reduce forefoot peak pressure and increase heel peak pressure during walking, and the subjective comfort level is significantly improved when the bio-gel pad is applied.
Effect of midsole material on plantar pressure of high-heel shoes
TLDR
The vertical jump results in this study concur with studies on adults that compared the jumping performance effects of shoes to barefoot, and the small reduction in jump height may be due to a reduction in midfoot power generation in sports shoes.
Plantar pressure distribution during high-heeled Latin dancing
The impact of high-heeled shoes on the human gait kinetic is an important research field. Most published studies have been focused on the effects of high-heeled shoes on normal walking, while works
Lower extremities kinematics variety of young women jogging with different heel height
TLDR
It is suggested that permanent wearing of shoes with heel height may contribute to knee osteoarthritis and higher risk of ankle sprain.
Effects of high heeled shoes on gait. A review.
TLDR
Major changes were found in the rollover function of the feet, the ankle and knee joints and the lower back, while step length and balance were compromised.
Knee osteoarthritis and high-heeled shoes
TLDR
The altered forces at the knee caused by walking in high heels may predispose to degenerative changes in the joint and be a risk factor for osteoarthritis in women.
EFFECT ON PLANTAR PRESSURE DISTRIBUTION WITH WEARING DIFFERENT BASE SIZE OF HIGH-HEEL SHOES DURING WALKING AND SLOW RUNNING
TLDR
The findings suggest that if individuals have to wear high heeled shoes, it would be better to select one with a wide based heel to avoid running in at any circumstance.
Regional plantar foot pressure distributions on high-heeled shoes-shank curve effects
TLDR
To achieve a more ideal pressure distribution in high-heeled shoes, a higher than expected depth of last would be suggested that would not cause discomfort over midfoot.

TLDR
Intersubject variability in the pattern and magnitude of the peak pressure distributions under the foot, which appear to be consistent in both the short and long term, may prove to be of importance in the clinical environment, by providing an individual baseline from which change can be measured.
Pressure Distribution under Symptom-Free Feet during Barefoot Standing
TLDR
The plantar pressure distributions for a large heterogeneous sample of feet were collected during barefoot standing using a capacitance mat and showed that the heel carried 60%, the midfoot 8%, and the forefoot 28% of the weightbearing load.
The mechanics of normal and hallux valgus feet--a quantitative study.
TLDR
In a study of 148 normal feet, the normal force distribution and its variation with age was quantified and showed the hallux to be important in sharing the load on the first ray.
Force, pressure, and motion measurements in the foot: current concepts.
TLDR
Modern foot-pressure measurement studies have successfully debunked the tripod theory; on the contrary, the highest peak loads under the forefoot occur as often as not under the third metatarsal head and not the first and fifth; and the first ray probably has the consistently highest load in normal feet.
Pressure distribution in Morton's foot structure.
TLDR
The results suggest that, although the loading pattern between MFS and normal feet is similar, the significantly higher second metatarsal head peak pressure in the MFS may predispose this foot type to problems associated with excessive localized pressure.

Effect of prolonged walking on concrete on the knees of sheep.
TLDR
It is concluded that significant changes occur in both cartilage and bone as a result of prolonged walking on hard surfaces.
The effect of impact loading on rabbit knee joints.
TLDR
Eighteen mature male Whiteland rabbits received repetitive impulse loads slightly larger than body weight through one knee joint for periods from 1 to 6 weeks, and cartilage degeneration occurred concurrently with alterations in the mechanical properties of the subchondral bone.
Pressures under normal feet in standing and walking as measured by foil pedobarography.
TLDR
An economical method of recording peak pressures under the feet while standing or walking is described for clinical application and correlation matrices indicate functional links between regions of support which influence patterns of deviation from the norms.
Response of joints to impact loading. I. In vitro wear.
TLDR
Bovine joints were oscillated under the maximum possible static load in a device which measured their coefficients of fraction while the joints were running, and cartilage wear became rapid and was easily discernible when periodic impact loading was added.
