" I'm going to make a shoe that simultaneously breaks my ankle while I wear them."
Lol I'm joking, but I'm curious as to the origins of heels, and not the little boot stump heels, but stilettos and wedges.
And what makes them so appealing to men?
( I heard something about the muscles in a women's legs or something like that?)
As a women, I love the shape of them and how they show off my feet, but Jesus Christ, they can get painful sometimes..

Originaly heels were worn so that a horse rider's heel would not slip. The heeled shoe was then issued and used by all military around the 1600s because they all rode on horse back. The French royalty and military officers would wear them as part of their uniform. The men actually wore them at first but women started to wear them to look taller and more elegant. French men did wear some questionalble attire back in the olden days. If you have looked at some old paintings you can see the little heels on men.
