After years of trekking the streets of New York in super-fashionable stilettos and boots, 25 year-old Brooklynite Zorana Richardson’s toes were looking bad. “One of them started getting really big,” Richardson says....

Notes:
The chuckle-inducing pun Loub job (where the "Loub" portion is a reference to shoe designer Christian Louboutin) can refer not only to a “toe tuck,” but also to its effective opposite: a collagen injection in the foot that adds “padding” to make wearing extremely high heels less painful. Loub job can also refer to a job taken solely to earn enough money to purchase Christian Louboutin shoes.
