Heels are a type of shoe with a raised heel designed to raise the heel of the wearer's foot significantly higher off the ground than the wearer's toes. Heels can cause the wearer's legs to appear longer, make the wearer appear taller, and focus attention on muscle tone in the wearer's legs.

There are various types of heels, varying in colors, materials, style, and origin. Wearing heels is also associated with health risks such as a greater risk of falls, musculoskeletal pain, the development of foot deformities as well as varicose veins.

What is the history of heels? 

In early 17th century Europe, heels were a sign of masculinity and high social status, and at the end of the century, the trend had extended to women's fashion as well. By the 18th century, high-heeled shoes were divided along gender lines, with men's heels being either riding or tall leather boots, and women's becoming narrower and pointier (similar to modern heels). By the 20th century, narrow high heels appeared for femininity; however, a thick high heel was still sometimes socially allowable for men. Until the 1950s, shoe heels were typically made of wood, but in recent years they are made of a variety of materials such as leather, suede, plastic, etc.

How to Wear High Heels Without Pain?

The first mistake women make is not wearing the right shoe size. Measure your shoe size every time you buy heels as it changes over years. You must know your foot type to get the idea on how much your foot is flattening or how high of an arch you have. It is better to wear thicker heels. Thin soles give you pain on the bottom of your foot. So, you need a thicker sole or a little bit of a platform, which will offset some of the pressure when you’re walking. Take breaks and stretch your ankles and toes. The more coverage on the top of your foot, the better it will be for your feet.  If the shoe is pinching at the store, it won't get better later. So, you shouldn't buy it.

Vaseline can be applied on the inside of the shoe where it is penetrating to prevent blisters or shoe bites. Walk with small slow steps as it makes the walk more comfortable. Prefer leather shoes because leathers are more breathable and flexible. 

What are the things you should not do while wearing heels? 

  • Don’t walk on uneven pavements wearing heels as you can lose balance. You must always scan the walking surface ahead of you and always walk with your head up looking ahead for any uneven pavement.

  • Long dresses are beautiful to wear with heels but be careful about stepping on your dress as you may fall. Choose the length of the dress smartly and try it on with heels before purchasing.

  • Don’t work out in heels as you are likely to get an injury sooner or later.

  • Don’t bring your heels to the beach as it is so uncomfortable to walk in those heels when you sink in them every step you take.

  • The sooner you put on the heels, the sooner you will experience foot pain. That is why you put on your heels when you’re ready to walk to the venue.

  • Don’t bend over in heels as you can literally fall over, losing your balance.

  • Don't wear heels for shopping or a long night out as it could be hectic and tiring.

What are the benefits of wearing heels?

It is said that every lady should have at least one pair of high heels in her wardrobe, even if she does not wear them every day. Heels are recognized as one of the attributes of femininity. Meanwhile there are some women who cannot imagine their lives without high heels, stilettos, wedges or platforms.

Wearing high heels not only makes your legs look amazing, but they also bring health benefits. These benefits can be both physical and mental.

  • Looking And Feeling Taller: Heels allow you to look and feel taller. While this might be okay if you meet the average 5 ft 8 height, but many women say that it can be irritating and awkward if you are just over five feet tall. Wearing heels allows you to feel empowered which can be beneficial for mental health. 

  • Working with those leg muscles: Heels can benefit the muscles in your legs leading to more muscle and less fat in the calves. This depends on the height of the heels that you choose to wear, but they have an impact here. 

  • Slimmer Physique: The heels cause your entire body to respond and arch the back. The chest is pushed out while the buttocks stick out making an appearance of a slimmer physique. It may cause you to lose weight and might do better than the dieting trend you have been trying recently.

  • Boosting Your Confidence:    The right set of heels can give you the level of confidence that you need for. When we are taller, we naturally feel more authoritative and as such are better equipped mentally to deal with issues that are stressful or put us under pressure.

  • Avoid Later Damage: Studies show that wearing heels strengthens the ankle joints and muscles and reduces the chance of women developing arthritis when they age. 

  • No Need for Exercise: Women who wear heels regularly have fifteen percent less electrical activity through their pelvic muscles. The pelvic muscle is linked to sexual activity, so women who wear heels could enjoy sexual activity far more without the need of exercising their pelvis.
