High heels Effects

“Give a girl, the right shoes and she can

Conquer the world.”


I believe if jewellery adds sparkles to her beauty, high heel add strength. Not only strength, but high heel even depicts high standards of women.

What you wear-and it always starts with your shoes-determines the kind of character you have. The women who wear a high heel carry herself in a very different way than the girl who wears sneakers/sandals. Heels really determine how you carry yourself. Heels not only uplift the beauty of women but also change her mood and the way she will move-may be like a wild beautiful animal.

High heel empowers women in a way. It makes women 25% more dominant, 50% more self-secure and 100% sexier. They give you power, let you move differently and even speak differently.

Even then, high heeled shoes have attracted praise and criticism in the same measure for centuries. It restricts your leg movement by reducing your steps and at the same time, it makes you appear that you are walking faster and likely to fall with your very next step. Thus, women love and hate heels at the same time. No matter, how they feel about them, whether comfortable or not, women still prefer to wear them and look glamorously confident. Listed below are the reasons why women love to wear high heels :-

  • Heels make them walk more attractive

  • They make them appear more feminine.

  • Heels are even office dress code

  • They Symbolise power

  • They are culturally-ingrained

  • They make them stand-out among the fellows.

  • They are now regarded as status symbol and measure of professionalism

  • There are some dresses that are designed to be worn only with high heels.

  • High heels bring out inherent grace in women by improving the body posture

  • The most important reason is, most women wear heels because they like doing so.

Now the question is, what ‘costs’ women by wearing high heels?

Side effects of high heels –

  • Pain: Heels should be preferred to wear in situations where there is not much need to be on your feet, or walking a lot as they can extremely hurt your feet after standing for quite long time.
  • If you are not habitual or not in practice of wearing heels, and still you wear them, you will end up hobbling around awkwardly.
  • They can be pretty inconvenient, by making you walk slowly and by restricting you from taking big strides.
