SHOES TRIBUTE: Why Do Women Wear Crazy Shoes?

This post is dedicated to ALL the ladies who just like me, LOVES to wear HEELS.

In here i excerpted an article that every single man raises the question, why do women wear crazy shoes? hahaha..

After Christian Louboutin hits the fashion industry, all was thankful for the saving of our shoe fetish feet! he saved us from tiring and suffering from wearing high heels.

He makes the front part of the shoe to be balanced those crazy 12 inches heels, so our feet just feel wearing regular heels and well balanced to from one place to another.

For me, as a petite, i need heels, maybe not as what Alexander McQueen designed for 2010 heels, but yes i love those double platform high heel shoes! also prefer wedges to sandals…. 😉

Why Do Women Wear Crazy Shoes? — The Cut.


The New York Times asks why women like to wear shoes that are impossibly high, uncomfortable, and difficult — perhaps even dangerous — to walk in. Various (what we suppose are) experts weigh in. Soap star Tina Sloan of Guiding Light offers this:

In brute defiance of reality, we wear heels we can barely walk in and much like sitting in the sun bathed in oil to get a darker tan or smoking so as not to eat and get fat, we suffer the consequences. But somehow the consequences are too far out to care about. It is just such fun to look glamorous in high, high heels.

Well, that’s silly, because high heels don’t actually give people cancer, like sun exposure or smoking. Moving on to a better answer from Robert H. Frank, Cornell economics professor.

Taller people earn more, for example, and command greater attention in social settings. And hence the attraction of high heels.

But height is relative. If others wear flats, a woman in two-inch heels seems tall. But that same woman seems short if others wear four-inch heels. Which explains why heels have grown taller as fashion markets have become more competitive. On Paris runways this week, models had to wear five-inch heels atop two-inch platform soles to get an edge.

He goes on to note that in the end no one gains, because high heels can injure the feet, knees, and back. We wear high heels sometimes because we like the way they look. Also because it’s just fun to be taller. Especially when you’re out with your man, and you have spectacular new seven-inch heels on (that you perhaps got an amazing deal on at a sample sale) and you’re finally taller than him, and he’s kind of embarrassed, but when you greet assorted friends, they say, “Wow! Your shoes are amazing! You’re so tall!” And you can say, “I know! I’m taller than him now!”
