Why do women wear high heels?
What Girls Said 38
it's decoration. it makes legs look graceful.1
Women's ideas of what "sexy" is are different than men's. We think that elaborate dresses, stilletos and a cloud of heavy, smokey perfume are the hottest things ever, because we are all form over substance - we love thing pretty, perfect and bright. Men like the substance, that is the flesh. I've heard many guys saying that girls should wear little or no makeup, smell like they just got out of the shower and preferably wear something comfy that comes off easily should things get hot.2
You don't have to get it. I don't look stupid and don't walk funny. I don't have deformed feet. I love wearing heels, I love shopping for heels and have 200 pair, maybe more. I get compliments almost daily and my man loves it when I wear them too. I also feel more sexy when I wear them.6
I don't think it's dumb. Everyone has different taste. Most guys like high hills from what I've noticed. I wear high hills cos I'm really short and it makes my walking 'better'. it also helps with my posture.1
I live in heels. I'm tiny at only 5'2", but I'm not trying to gain height by wearing them. I just happen to like the way they make me look, in a dress or skirt. I don't wear stripper shoes, with obnoxiously high heels, but more modest ones at 3" or 4", and do happen to find them comfortable, but that's just me. I have received no shortage of compliments, so I must be doing something right, and will continue. To each his own...2
Sweetie, I have had men actually tell me they want to have sex with me "Fuck me pumps and red lingerie.:))
Seriously, women who do like a "heel with appeal" may or may not agree with your opinion. I don't think it has anything with "height." I am nearly 5'4, and enjoy them for the style and the color I prefer to wear with certain outfits. As long as they are not "sultry stiletto," I am good to go. Whatever reasons woman all over the world have for wearing "The Shoe," I am quite sure it isn't to "look so stupid and make them walk funny." I have seen men run around with holes in their jeans, or even their pants hanging so far down that I could put my finger up the crack of their butt.:))xx7
Because it looks better with certain outfits.
Honestly, I wear heels because I like time not to please anyone else.
So your opinion wouldn't really bother me.
Your entitled to your own thoughts, just like women are entitled to their own taste.3
Some girls just want to look taller because they think they're too short to find a guy. It's not about loooking more attractive, it's about being taller and getting noticed more. I do agree that heels could make someone walk really funny, but if you're actually taught how to walk in heels the right way, it looks fabulous. Look at all those runway models who walk in heels, it's as if it's nothing! And heels don't deform your feet, but if you don't wear them the right way or if it's too small, you can get blisters.4
Everything we are told by the media is that we supposedly look better in high heels. I personally think that most high heels seem ridiculous because I see so many ungraceful women trying to make them work. The most I'll wear is a two inch heel.1
None of the above... I'm a female and it's my preference. Just like I wear any other kind of show whether it's boots, sandals, gym shoes, etc I wear it because I choose to and it's a fashion statement.
It doesn't damage my feet and it doesn't make me walk funny. If you really want to know why I began wearing heels it's because it's kind of a must when modeling which I did in my past.0
I don't wear high heeled shoes. I couldn't wear them and look natural (in my opinion) because they are uncomfortable and when I'm uncomfortable on the inside, I look awkward on the outside. I don't know how other girls seem to pull it off so well. I could never do that. Also I don't care enough about my looks to wear them just so I can look good. The only time I wear high heeled shoes is if I'm going to a banquet and I know that I won't be standing for more then ten minutes at a time.0
Things like makeup, high heels and hair weaves are supposed to make up for things we don't have or lack. A better complexion, extra height and more hair. Women has grown accustomed to acquiring alll this to make them look 'extra attractive' on the outside... but what about the inside?1
I don't get it either. But I believe women think it is sexy. To me it is painful. Not my thing. I once answered a question on here, "How tall are you with heels", I said, " I am 5'3", with heels I am 5'4", lol.1
I want to look taller and it make my selfesteem go up2
I don't wear ridiculous stillettos or anything like that, I just wear smaller, thicker heels. I don't wear them because they hurt, they're hard to walk in and I just don't see the point. The reason I wear heels when I wear them is mostly because I'm short and I think they look nice when I get dressed up.0
They're fun a free workout to make your legs and butt look awesome. For us short girls it's basically a godsend to make us taller.1
I wear them because I like the way that they look. Also, because I'm only 5'1, it's nice to be a little bit taller.2
I just love how I look in heels and they make me taller3

High heels have an impact on posture/muscle position.
Stand on your tip-toes when you have a chance. Notice that your butt muscles are contracted. Now, rather than using your calf muscles to push yourself up on your toes, just find someplace where you can stand with your heel an inch or more higher than your toes. Same thing: your butt is more round.
One thing you won't notice right away, but if you were to wear boots with heels and pay very close attention, you'd notice also that your shoulders are pulled back a small amount in order to maintain your center of gravity.
With your shoulders pulled slightly further back, your chest is pushed further up and out.
So in the end it comes down to T&A. Two body areas are accentuated that also happen to be body areas that men are rather attracted to.
Calves, as some have mentioned, are also positioned differently and perhaps more attractive. But I think we're all just a tad more focused on the effect heels have on the anterior and the posterior...
I hadn't really thought about it before now, but I guess cowboy boots would have the same effect on our (guys) butts, and have us throwing out our chests quite a bit more.
1. Makes their legs look longer and more shapely
2. Makes their behinds more prominent and shapely...!
3. Makes their hips sway to keep their balance.
I agree it's very artificial, and not good for the feet and the calf muscles if they wear them a lot of fhours..but there are these very good reasons.2
It's easily D.
High heels make legs look longer, makes the butt look perkier, makes her look taller, makes her bust more prominent, and intensifies the swaying of her hips when she walks.3
some wear them because they like them, and they look good in them, others because they think they need to because they think guys will like them, answer to that most guys will like them in heels, but most likely without heels as well. if a woman wants to wear them then that is upto her for what ever reasons she has, if you don't like a girl in heels then go look for one without heels0
heeled shoers were actually first evented and worn by men and women to try an accentuate their calf muscles (since put more weight on your toes tenses the calf muscle). that is the old rationale.
now I think accentuating the calf muscle is part of it but also to appear taller and also I think some women just like them
asking this question is kind of like asking why humans where anything that isn't essential. I mean jewelry is expensive, tarnishes and often goes out of fashion, it serves no non-superficial purpose. yet men and women alike wear it. piercings, again serves no purpose, can be expensive and painful to get done and is also something that can go out of fashion... suffice to say humans are the most rational beings4
I think high heels look really sexy, on the right girl.3
I LOVE a woman who wears heels! :) Nothing grabs my attention quicker!0
They them to look taller and more attractive.0
I don't like them most of the time either. If can make the legs sexy, but the shoe itself is ugly as fuck sop it kind of counteracts the rest of the effect.0
Because they want to look unattractive so guys don't hit on them I think0
