Why Women Love to Walk in High Heels, and Men Love it!

Updated on September 23, 2012

Rumor has it...

How is that when we males see a woman walking down the street; we literally turn to watch instinctively? Is this the preamble of a sexy view? Most likely yeah, unless you got cheated by Ru Paul, who didn't mind... making you turn heads... right Channing Tatum? "Yuck Lord!"

For the married guy, is an announcement of an impending slap on the face, courtesy of the wives walking next to them. For the single guys is just a reminder of freedom and its exquisite benefits. Sorry Brad Pitt, Angelina got you good by the balls of fire from a 4th of July evening!

All along Matthew McConaughey was laughing with us with his free spirit and his sex appeal.


It Takes two...

Women get on those stilettos ready... and dressed to kill. On the other side Men are like those bulfighters of desire. They get ready to take those sensual 'libido-bulls' of refrained sensuality by the porns... I mean Horns and look for the best angle to give it a shot. If you women look at the mirror on high heels, you will see a change:

  • Your chest will... and your breast of course... activate a red flag in us men (We didn't say dogs yet!)
  • Your derrier will be... somehow, someway... enhanced and tonified, for the sake of us poor guys...! Will you please call later, Eddy Scissor hands?


If you men look at the mirror

On high heels:

  • Either you loved that 'Disco Era'
  • Or probably you thought it was October 31st, huh?
  • Or better yet; you have finally come to terms with your feminine side... bingo? Oh my!!

Now you realize that it takes both sexes for a trend to be picked up with particular styles. Women love to wear those strappy heels with unique style. They can spend more than 5 hours on 3 malls (4?), just to make up their minds and select a model at 'Pay-less.' Women love those platforms to check our mood from that unquestionable height. Women feel better on those 5-inch clear high-heels in order to catch bargains and potential bitches that roamed around their men. Well, you young woman bought your men that KC cologne for father's day, and there is no way to keep some 'bumble bees' away from your 'honey.'


On a more serious note...

Wearing high-heeled designs can change your legs anatomy, and lead to foot problems.

According to Orthopedists and foot specialists studies, High-heel wearers showed wearing shoes with a 2-inch or higher heel can shorten the calf muscle and create a thicker, stiffer Achilles tendon. which can lead to reduced ankle flexibility and unexpected pain.

How high is too high...?

How come Hot movie Stars wear them?

They have massage, Spas and pedicurists... Raul0324, who is a masseur can back us up. Hot actresses from Hollywood get surrounded by an entourage of foot specialists who advice them the best way they can.

Recommendations for the average lady

One solution is to limit the amount of time you ladies spend in heels. The human body was design to give warnings, and you should know your limitations. You cannot confuse Madea's heels with Janet Jackson's wardrobe... I mean feet!

Alternate those high heels with flats or even sneakers for part of the day. Or better yet vary heel height -- make your hubby's credit card worth the swipe!! choosing lower heels walking pumps.

As you can tell, keep your feet in good shape with flexibility exercises. Another trick is to walk barefoot in the sand, or maybe pick up a marble with your toes, or pull a towel, if you are indoors. Please! Please! know your limitations and your size. You cannot compare Jada Pinket Smith with Martin Lawrence's character-- 'Big Momma'. Some shoes will fit they odalisquean Cinderella and some shoes won't. We don't need to be rocket Scientists, when it comes to give advice that... is just a feet away.


We love ladies in high heels; might be in the blood, or that inner adrenaline from us men. The world won't be the same the day they disappear from our everyday fashionable life. Well we forgive Elton John and our buddies from 'Kizz'

I wanna Rock!!

For Women only... Well, not anymore!

How high is too high for you?

    I personally am tired of women towering over me on my dates. Ladies, ditch the high heels and be only slightly taller than me - unless we are slow dancing. Then I don't mind so much.

    Good point I scribble,

    This fashion will never end as we see it. Sexual revolution and the industry will keep the trending alive along with revamping models, colors and possible sensor calves... just to keep them coming. Thanks for giving the femenine side of the story.

    They may look sexy and chic, but they've got to be one of the unhealthiest fashion trends ever. I'm on the tall side, and never wore anything over 3 inches, and those were uncomfortable after the first 5 minutes. Now I'm in my middle years and couldn't balance on anything over 2 inches even if I wanted. High heels are a podiatrist's nightmare, or maybe his/her bread and butter, depending on how you look at at.

    Ron Hawkster,

    Superb advice for our ladies. Women should decide how much is too high, and how high is feminine enough. You stated some good points though.

    @Ivona Poyntz, you are free to dress according to your needs and suggestions. Women indeed look better on those high heels. However ther is a limit set by nature and we cannot abuse our calf and our unique body.

    @ Anamika S, You look better on high heels, we can tell. But your own experiences tell our ladies to be careful. Thanks for commenting!

    You are funny! You saw both videos? That was a lot of love or support. The idea was to write a serious article, but our humor popped out. Thanks!

    Tammy, I wonder if leather boots can really help in keeping a better balance and a healthier calf. Thanks for your support. Was nice of you!

    Always Exploring,

    You must've look good on high heels. I think when women find out that high heels enhance their curves, they just go for it. Thanks for stopping by!

    KJ Chiroprators, Podiatrists, and Orthopedics might sue you for invasion of privacy. Actually you did good. and kept up with our ranting. Much appreciated!

    Wow, you can write a book about the glamour of the seventies. Your story confirm our fears: is painful, but women take the risks to look their best. Thanks for your honest comment!

    I like to wear high heels to look tall. However, I had a mighty fall years ago and have not worn stilettos after that. Coming to men, I think Men like to look tall too. Good Hub, voted up!

    Ha. I still think high heels look better on a girl than on a guy, though!

    Interesting article. Thanks for the laughs. There is a problem with people drastically altering their natural looks to look better temporarily. It's one thing to have a, let's say, nose job or even hair dye. Those are either permanent or long term. But when it's a very temporary measure, such as very high heels, extreme make up, padded bras, at some point the real person has to step forward, and if their appeal was the 10 inches that the heels added or the redness of the lips that the lip gloss created or the eye-popper illusion the padded bra induced, that appeal is gone. The high heels change the proportion of the appearance of a woman's body. The legs look much longer than they really are. Once she takes off the high heels then she looks different. What's wrong with their own natural beauty? Why do they need to alter it, risk their health, cause a lot of discomfort to themselves for an unreal look? Ladies, guys will dig you without the extreme measures. If they're there for your extra large boobs or extra tall legs, you don't want those guys. They are too superficial.

    It appears I am not the only one with a shoe fetish. I like stilleto boots because they give your foot extra support through the calf. Interesting topic. I particularly liked your expression "odalisquean Cinderella." You have the ability to make every thing beautiful.

    Ah Lord, the glamour and sexiness of high heels with the dangers following closely on the heels! Great job.

    I am a high heel sufferer. I wore spiked heels for many, many years. To work, on subways, even wore high heeled platforms to amusement parks, until I got two Morton's neuromas...I won't go into detail suffice it to say they were caused by extensive wear of high heels. Now, I can't wear any heels at all, well very occasionally for very short periods of time.

    This is a great article and while humorous makes a very important point.

    Voted up, useful, awesome, and interesting. Sharing with my followers.

    Bobbi Purvis,

    You are such a charm! I wonder why we love high heels and black leather. Probably some hubber fellow can answer to that. The video was chosen for its clear advice. You can indulge yourself and go to the mall and try those superb models. Thanks again!

    Thanks Lathing for reading our article. Women look fantabulous in them. probably it was instilled in us from birth. Exercise and massage can help you tons. Alternating the height can keep you ladies safer and almost free of future pain.

    Very nice, and I found out the hard way of walking in the sand at a beach party.

    Very informative hub and the video helps a lot of people to stay and moving in their heels at the same time safe.

    I voted useful and awesome.

    Your Hub Friend,

    With the truth about men, then humor (!!), you also pointed out some bad effects of wearing High heels..... We love our heels but we should know better! My latest love, is not with the platform Highheels, but running bear foot in the sand ;)

    Voting up and interesting!
