Stunning Red Peep Toe Heels

Updated on August 21, 2014

There is nothing quite like red shoes to perk up your spirits and make you feel like blossoming for a day.

Peep toe heels first appeared in the 1930s during the Great Depression, when women and men wanted to make themselves feel more glamorous and chic during dark times. In 2006, peep toe heels became so popular that manufacturers started reproducing the peep toes from the 1930s.

Red shoes are eyecatching, interesting and flamboyant, and red peep toe heels are the most sexual, sensual and uplifting shoes you can slide your feet into. Notorious for attracting men, red peep toe heels reveal a subtle hint of toe cleavage and are very versatile – you can wear them to a garden party or a formal event – and if you don’t attract the man of your dreams, it’s very possible you could attract someone else’s!

Why Women Love Red Peep Toe Heels

Have you ever had a day where you wanted to appreciate the colour red? Where you wanted to shout out to the world that you are blooming, healthy, sexual, passionate and organic? Red is the colour of blood, hence it is often associated with passion, bittersweet tastes, connections to nature and vital energy. It’s a strong colour that evokes strong reactions in others.

Red peep toe heels come in many great colours, from cherry to vermilion, chestnut to wine. Some of the darker reds, salmons and bricks are closer to organic roots, indicating strong ties to the natural world. It’s no wonder that women love brilliant shoe colours like red – we’re emotional beings who like to show how we’re feeling on the day – and see if anyone wants to respond to us!

Peep toes are great for keeping your foot cool and preventing sweat and sliding. Peep toe heels are particularly good for making your legs look longer and your buttocks more emphasised. For everyday workwear, heels are probably not the best idea unless you are practised at wearing them – if you are not, ballet flat red peep toes are the way to go. On nights out, when you want to attract men, red peep toe heels are an excellent choice and are very sexy and versatile with many outfits.

Swatches For Red Peep Toe Heels

The colour red used in shoes and clothing shouts passion, great health and energy at the top of its voice. It is worn by people who are connected strongly with their life or would like to be. It’s chic, fashionable, glamorous and eye catching. If you wear red, you’ll find yourself becoming more versatile with your wardrobe and incorporating a variety of colours that will uplift your emotional wellbeing.

Why Men Love Red Peep Toe Heels

Red shoes are notorious for attracting men. Firstly, men look at the bright colour at the shoe and are also attracted by the height, for what it does for your legs and buttocks (they are looking at your whole body, but the shoes are like the red flag to the bull!) Red peep toe heels have a particularly loud siren call, as the revealing toe cleavage shows a hint of sexy skin and the peep toe design acts like breast cleavage, only more subtle. Men respond to red peep toe heels by being stimulated by the illusive and “forbidden” aspect of toe cleavage, a bit like breast cleavage in that they are only permitted to look, not touch. Foot fetishists will be most aroused by red peep toe heels!

Another reason why men like women to wear red peep toe heels is that they are proud of knowing, or being with, a happy, healthy and passionate woman, with energy for life flowing through her veins. If you gave a man a choice between his woman wearing grey flats or red peep toe heels, most times, he ‘d want the peep toes – not just for the sexual factor, but also for the stimulating colour and vital energy of the person wearing it. Men want to be with women who are interesting and passionate, who share their interest in in getting the most out of life and who are open minded and positive. Wearing red peep toe shoes is a good starting point for women to assist them in feeling and expressing these important emotions.

      I must admit that I have an affinity toward peep toe heels. I have owned a pair of black peep toe heels, but never red. I enjoyed reading more than I have ever known about red peep toe heels. They are quite the seductive style of shoe.

      This is an amazing hub, and certainly one of the most in depth I've read on HubPages when it comes to an element of sexiness. I must admit that I do love women in red peep toe heels, there's something extremely seductive about them.

      Thanks for sharing the great information, and the photos too!
