There are so many advantages to a great pair of heels. The obvious being it makes a woman's legs longer and more defined as the angle change between the foot and the lower leg accentuates the appearance of the calves. Wearing high heels can actually be a great workout. For those who don't wear them regularly, calf muscles are being put into a position where they have lost most of their strength and therefore have to work harder to do the same job. For experienced high heel wearers this is less of an issue as muscles will adapt to the different posture.
Walking in heels also burns more calories. By walking unencumbered, motion pattern minimizes energy consumption. The heels represent a restraint that makes it impossible for those to attain their preferred motion pattern which essentially increases metabolism for walking the same distance.
Adding heel makes any outfit that much more stylish and some experts say it can even boost a woman's career by transforming her into a confident, strident force to be reckoned with. Putting her at eye level with male coworkers can subconsciously create better gender equality in the office as well.
The best part - wearing high heels can improve your sex life because the act of wearing them makes you feel sexy and strengthens core abdominal and pelvic muscles at the same time (also another workout tool). High heels thrust out the buttocks and arch the back into a natural mammalian courting pose called lordosis. Rats, sheep, lions as well as dogs all do this pose. It's a natural sexy posture that men immediately see as sexual readiness. So enough said - isn't it about time you treated yourself to another pair of shoes?
