Barbie is getting a podiatry makeover.

Mattell, the creator of the dolls, announced a new line of Barbies that will feature bendable ankles, giving the dolls’ formerly permanently angled feet a little footwear variation. So long, stilettos; hello, ballet flats!

If you were Barbie, would you be waving your plastic arms in celebration, or would you still faithfully strap on your Louboutins?

Women fall into two very distinct camps—those who can’t live without their pumps (“They’re fierce!”), and those whose toes curl at the very mention of high heels (“The pain just isn’t worth it”). How do you feel about heels? Take our poll and leave us a comment sharing your go-to shoe.
