I am one person who do not look good in high heels especially the stiletto ones. I also do not approve of women wearing very high heels. Though a lot may agree that heels can add allure, confidence and sexiness to anyone who wear them (properly) especially during parties, formal events and beauty contests I still believe that one can be sexy, confident and alluring by accepting one's uniqueness and simplicity. Perhaps I feel I am not myself when I wear heels because I feel uncomfortable wearing them, besides the saying" no pain, no gain" does not ring a bell to me when it comes to wearing heels. I do not like the pain when I wear them plus I do not have to gain appreciation nor acceptance when I have them on.
The fact that I cannot walk FAST while wearing them even add to those red lights previously mentioned. I love to walk, brisk walk especially when that is my only constant exercise to my already sedentary life. I also love to jog and run. Since the idea that I may mistakenly slip or trip over because I am wearing heels that would result to an injury is something that I would rather not have nor want to entertain on my mind.
Recently I have stumbled a post at Project Eve, a global community of women helping women which I am a member. The article was originally written by Todd Lindeman and Brenna Maloney for Washington Post published on June 17, 2013. In it is a very detailed infographic on the-true-effect-of-high-heels. It shows the devastating effect of women's high heel shoes on the overall health to those who wear them.
Perhaps that answers why I am not into wearing heels and would rather be on flats. So for those who believe that there ain't no gain without pain, try giving it some thought. And by the way you may want to keep some flats available, just in case.
