Every single woman on the red carpet wears heels.

They just LOOK better.

They whip their heels off the minute they get home though...but the same goes for makeup, earrings, fancy dresses.

I believe women have a higher pain threshold than men and for this reason can ignore minor discomfort for hours. Such as hurty heels that look FABULOUS.

I guess it makes sense. I wonder if it might be that the person just does not wear them enough to get used to them and that is why some women say they hurt .

Now that makes total sense. I bet your right.

Not necessarily. If I wear 4+ heels, it looks like I only exist of legs.

Lol a poster on another thread said -

"Heels are the most comfortable shoes I own. When I wear them, I don't have to lift a finger."

So true.

It increases stability.

Think of a supporting column in a house or carpark.

All that weight on top is going to snap a thin column.

The thicker the column, the more support offered to the weight above.

I did a lot of convention modeling when I was younger, then throughout college. I graduated last year, and am now working in an office. I wear heels every day to work, because my feet literally hurt without them. All the years I spent long hours in high heels molded my foot to arch, and so now when I wear flipflops to the beach, it hurts a lot, which is a problem. :/. I think heels make me more graceful, in that I am aware of where I am steping, and what I might be stepping on, though it's not consciously in the fron of my brain.
