Women & High Heels
Most of the time, I choose shoes based on comfort level over heel height. But an irresistible sale this past weekend convinced me to buy an unusually high heel. I wore this pair of shoes to work and within seconds of walking in the building, I felt like a new woman. Other females in the office complimented my shoe game and the men looked at me with a new level of admiration!
So I got to thinking, is THIS why women all over the world kill themselves (shoeicide) in stilettos?
Does wearing a high heel shoe really make that much a difference in the way others see and treat a woman?
For my intern Ali, who stands at 6 feet tall, heels are a blessing and a curse! While she has a deep appreciation for the higher/finer shoes in life, her natural height prevents her from rocking them .
If someone is already 6 foot and throws on heels to become 6’5 just for a night of dancing in a club is that really attractive to guys? Average height for a man in 6’2” and I can assure no guy wants to feel inferior to an amazon sky scrapper female. However, being fewer than 5 feet some girls never leave the house without some sort of heel on their shoe. Being short can make you look much younger than you are, yet adding on a couple inches and you could actually appear to be older.
