Why would anyone wear this? What is the reasoning behind making sky-high shoes?

      


  “Heels over 4 inches are made for short girls,” says a friend of mine. In the movie called “She’s the Man,” Viola said she wasn't going to wear heels because heels are a male invention designed to make it harder for females to run away. Is this reason plausible? It is difficult to understand why heels over 4 inches are made. They are uncomfortable and induce injuries most of the time. Shoes are supposed to protect the feet not damage them. Yes, they look pretty when displayed in the stores but not on someone struggling to walk in them. If you are a shoe designer and you think 6 inches or more looks good, then take the time to create comfortable ones that ladies can wear without breaking their legs. I do not imagine that 6 inches heels would look good on a broken leg.

  1. I have worn 5 inch heels that are extremely comfortable. The more money you pay for your shoes, the more comfortable they are (try on a pair of Louboutins and you'll see what I mean); and the higher your shoes are, the more elegant you look. And no, 6 inch heels are not for short girls, they are for everyone, they elongate your legs and make you look better. That being said, I would definitely wear those :)
