Women in high heels are perceived as more attractive than women in flat shoes by both men and women. The wearing of high heels hoists the derriere by approximately 20 to 30 degrees as a function of the heel's size. The larger the heel is, the greater the lift. As we age, gravity becomes a growing nemesis to our figures, especially for women. Perky body parts are associated with youth, sagging parts with age.
Heels are a way women can gain back some of the power they feel they lack due to their height. Wearing heels makes them feel in charge because height is the antithesis of power. [Wearing heels] literally makes a woman look down at someone instead of looking up at someone.
There are heels on your shoes because people rode horses. A boot heel was designed to keep the foot from slipping forward in a stirrup. Heels became fashionable because they made people look taller, and because they allowed the calf muscles to shorten and look fuller.
To some, heels are a nasty habit. Lumbar spine flattening, posterior displacement of the head, and unwelcome increased pressure on the foot are all results of heel-wearing. They can even cause spasm-producing spinal nerve conditions. Any woman who has gone through an evening standing, walking, dancing or leaning casually against a bar in high heels knows the pulsing, constrictive, numbing pain they can cause. But most women still wear them. Why? Heels make walk more attractive.
What is the difference between high heels and stilettos?
High heeled shoes are often the normal high heels or simply heel footwear. These raise the heel of the wearer's foot significantly higher than the toes. Stilettos are a type of high heel shoes. They are known to have extra long heels as compared to other heeled shoes.
