Shoes with high heels have been worn for more than 500 years, and ever since then they have been connected with status quo, elegance and glamor despite their known harmful aspects.
Let’s Talk About Shoes
High heels are a must-have in any closet, and they are a source of pride for women everywhere. Heels provide a good workout, because they can shape and tone your leg muscles. They can also make a woman look thinner and taller, which is definitely a plus if you’re on a runway or a sidewalk!
Who here remembers Marilyn Monroe sporting silver high heels or Julia Robert’s shoes with heels in the 90s flick ‘Pretty Woman’? Wearing high heels is a fashion statement for bold, independent women.
A survey conducted by Compeed, a foot care brand, asked 3,792 women from five different European countries about heel height. The results are interesting, because they suggest that average body height is related to shoe heel height. There is a negative correlation between the two, which might explain how women try to improve their self-esteem with the extra height. British women in the UK are among those who wear the highest heels, measuring 3,3 inches.
Wearing high heels should be neither painful nor unpleasant. It should be a pleasurable, empowering experience for women. There is good news for high-heeled shoes. Good impact absorption footbeds and cushioning improve comfort during long hours.
