The Kardashians: with their TV show having just concluded season 14, there is no denying – we all obsess over them. The Kardashian empire spreads over TV shows (it is not just ‘Keeping Up’ anymore – ‘Glam Masters’ and ‘Revenge Body’ have cemented the sisters’ position as the TV queens), cosmetics (Kim has taught us all how to contour and conceal-bake-brighten), mobile games ($74million in 6 months, anyone?), apps (the Kourtney special: ‘How to shop for organic, gluten-free, vegan, non-diary foods’), merchandise, and so much more.
Kim, Kourtney, Khloe and Kris have had the spotlight on them ever since their young years, mostly due to the infamous OJ Simpson trial and Kris’ marriage to the Olympian, Caitlyn Jenner. However, they did not truly become celebrities in their own right until 2007, when the first episode of their now-famous show had aired.
Ever since then, we have known the Kardashians as skyscraper-heel-wearing, chic-looking stars. But! Have you ever wondered what effect the years of wearing super high heels have had on the women of the family? How likely are they to develop bunions? Do bunions run in the Kardashian family? How do the Kardashians' toes look? Are they a part of the quite massive group of celebrities with bunions, which includes even Meghan Markle?
We take a look at the toes of Kim, Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian, as well as their momager, Kris Jenner. As bunions are often hereditary, it only makes sense to look at the feet of Kris too. Have these celebrities miraculously avoided bunions, or are their toes doomed to bend?
Throughout this blog, we also point out how many childbirths each Kardashian has been through. This is because bunions can get worse during pregnancy, as the ligaments loosen ahead of childbirth and while breastfeeding.
1. Kris Jenner – age 62 – pregnancies: 6
Kris tends to wear clothes that do not reveal much, and that includes her shoes, which makes it a bit of a struggle to obtain a very recent photo of her feet. Here are the most recent we could find though. As you can notice, Kris does not have bunions as such, but her toes are definitely showing some bendy, bunion-like tendencies.
2. Kim Kardashian West – age 37 – pregnancies: 2
Kim has recently provided us with this photo of her feet in the sand on a recent vacation.
After years of wearing very high heels, we would have expected Kim’s feet to carry the burden of her taste in shoes by now. Surprisingly, her feet look as if she’s been wearing flats most of her life! This is great for Kim.
3. Kourtney Kardashian – age 38 – pregnancies: 3
Kourtney is the oldest Kardashian sister. As bunions tend to get worse with age, Kourtney is the sister who we would particularly expect to display signs of bunions.
As you can see on the photo, Kourtney seems to indeed be displaying the start of bunions. Although having said that, it is possible that her bendy toes are due to the shoes that she had been wearing earlier that day.
This photo, from a different angle, leaves no doubts. It definitely seems as if Kourtney’s feet are starting to develop bunions.
4. Khloe Kardashian – age 33 years – pregnancies: 1
Khloe is the youngest sister, out of the ‘full-blood Kardashian’ generation, which excludes Kendall and Kylie Jenner. At her age, we would not expect her to have developed bunions yet, but let’s look at her feet.
Confirming our suspicions, Khloe’s feet look great, with no sign of bunions. However, considering that Kourtney is starting to develop some, Khloe should be careful and look out for symptoms in the future.
If Kim, Khloe, Kourtney and Kris ever need bunion-friendly shoes, we hope that they do consider Calla shoes - our range is truly red carpet-worthy!
