The “Barbie Foot Challenge” is starting to go viral.  This comes three weeks before Barbie hits theatres on the 21st.  Like most social media challenges, this one has come with a warning from foot Doctors.  Margot Robbie plays the main Barbie.  There’s a scene in the trailer where she steps out of her heels and her feet stay perfectly lifted.  The Barbie Foot Challenge is exactly this.  People are recording themselves stepping out of their heels and standing up as if they still have heels on.  Doctors are already warning people of potential ankle injuries if attempted too much.  Dr. Jodi R. Schoenhaus, a Podiatrist in Florida, says that because of the ankle’s instability when standing as the challenge suggests, it can lead to sprained ligaments and other injuries seen with constant high-heel use.  Even though the Barbie Foot Challenge is already a cause for concern, the Doctor also says trying a couple of times to make a fun TikTok is ok.  Check out examples of the challenge below!
