If the Shoe Fits…

LOVE THEM OR LEAVE THEM

Let’s talk about the creativity of the soul… the designs of many soles…the high heel. Lately have you noticed a “come back” of sorts of the higher shoe heel for women?  I have, and I am not too sure about wearing the extreem heights myself but, they can be quite artful to admire.  Sandals, boots and even flip-flops have been designed with a heel.

If the shoe fits…what are the reasons why women wear high heels? Are are short in stature and would like to appear taller? Do they believe that they make their legs appear longer?  Are women just wearing heels to strengthen their calf muscles?  Does walking in heels add a feminine or sexy strutt to a walk?  Is is more important to be fashionable and follow trends in footwear to override comfort and senseability?  Were the shoes on SALE in the first place and therefore were considered a “must have” and now a “must wear” situation?  Do the shoes act as a status symbol or are they giving of self-confidence?  There can be many reasons why women like to own and wear high heeled shoes.

Take a look around and notice the DESIGN, form and shape of these creations when they are on the store shelves or when you notice them on real people around town.  Look beyond the price tags, noticing the stress and strain of the person walking in unnatural angles and the fact that they are being worn by all types of women, sometimes too “young” AND sometimes too “old”.  Consider appreciating the look, courage and strength it takes to wear and create such an item and the material they are made from.  Some styles look more like sculptures- real works of art!  And no matter how impractical you think they are, some can even remind us that we have a sense of fashion…or humor!

From heel to toe- they can make a statement in fashion.

    It can be a high price to pay for shoe comfort and the expense of the fashion accessory. I can appreciate and value the art sense of it all though. I don’t have a shoe fetish or a purse collection. I guess the bead obsession is my “harmless love” that I have instead.

    Got to send this to friends with shoe fetishes. Personally – I gave up heels but …what some women do for fashion or to be different is amazing

    YES, you have found wonderful “ARTFUL” photos of interesting shoes too for your blog post! I can appreciate them for art, not too interested in trying to walk in any of those myself. I had to mention something about heels in a blog because of the inspiration from a pair of shoes that one of my friends recently bought and placed a photo of them on facebook. They were REALLY high and pink!
