People like to deride tall shoes as "impractical"...
Well... Making myself hotter, leggier, more alluring, and more intimidating has plenty of practical purposes. ❤️
I mean, plus, that's a non-argument anyway.
Why try to make more money? That doesn't DIRECTLY have any practical benefits, either.
"Ah, but, I make money, and then I can do all these things WITH the money..."
There's no DIRECT practical benefit, but, in terms of 2nd order practical benefits, Marilyn had it right:
Just like extra money is currency that can be used to obtain all sorts of benefits... The boost to attractiveness from wearing heels likewise has "currency" -- in just about every kind of human interaction.
Not to mention confidence -- which also affects, well, just about every kind of human interaction, too.
I mean, you may know that body language translates directly into mental state. (For instance, if you hold yr arms over yr head in a "victory" pose for a couple of minutes, you'll actually start to FEEL more elated... and if you force yrself to smile for 30 seconds, yr actual mood will improve measurably.)
Similarly, when a girl wears heels, they generally put her into a posture which -- factually -- tends to increase her confidence, and tends to make her walk through the world as though SHE owns IT, rather than as though IT owns HER.
This is a VERY real benefit. I don't really know if I can think of something equivalent for non-heel-wearers (or men), other than the old worn-out advice like "stand tall with yr chest out" -- but those, too, are real things with real benefits.
I mean... literally like 95 percent of women who are anatomically able to wear heels wear them. We are not all crazy insane freaks, y'know...
If something is THAT widespread, there's probably a reason.
Not to mention, if you have narrow-ass hips like me (#teamnothighgap) and high arches, wearing heels can even serve to take stress off yr knees. (If you have wide hips, of the type that give you a thigh gap, you should wear them less often, and do exercises to strengthen yr inner quads.)
