A “Heel” of a progression!

12 Nov

Anyone wonder where the concept of shoes came from? Well I do, after doing some research I found that shoes was one of the first inventions made by our ancestors.  Go figure!!  AND the heels were actually a very controversial subject matter back in the day. People just didn’t understand the need for women to walk in heels. It was only in the 1850s that people started wearing heels.

“Victorians thought that the high heel emphasized the instep arch, which was seen as symbolic of a curve of a woman”. I mean this totally stays true for today’s day and age. The heel is associated with sexiness, sophistication, and elegance. It makes women feel confident, despite where they come from and who they are – not to forget really tall!!

I don’t even want to imagine what we would do without Stilettos or Pumps?  I don’t want to think about it. All I know is that we’ve made a lot of progress and no matter how convinced our ancestors were about them…they were wrong.
