These High Heels are Made for Walking
It might surprise many of you to discover that high-heeled shoes were originally made for and worn by men!
High heels were not originally designed for walking in; they were actually used throughout the near east as riding footwear. The heel would help soldiers when fighting by enabling him to secure his foot in the stirrup so that he could get a better shot with his bow and arrow.
Further along the line, aristocrats from Western Europe adopted the high heeled shoe from the Persians (when they were sent over by Persia's Shah Abbas in 1599) in order to help give them a more superior masculine edge. Eventually, the lower ranks of society began wearing heels which did not please the aristocrats; so they fought back and increased the height of their heels; resulting in the birth of the “high-heeled” shoe.
Today, some men do still wear heels but for entirely different reasons than the one above. The majority of the time it is women who have the high-heeled shoe fetish! Women's collections of shoes simply grow and grow; sometimes until they have to extend the shoe cupboard to make more room for the expanding collection.
