Okey doke.

As a middle-aged guy, I'll wear heels out tomorrow on New Year's Eve.

Those and some fishnets should get me plenty of attention!

I prefer women in flats. Not slowly giving themselves a back injury is sexier.

I believe the published study simply said "Duh"

Personally I think high heels look utterly ridiculous.  But what do I know, I think women plastering their face with make-up looks like crap too.
 
2012-12-31 04:55:39 AM  
Women in heels are my type. You know, they can't run away.

Yes, I like how high heels look. But those things are a farking abomination.

Looses points for not wearing stockings as well.

The type of women that heels make look good, don't need heels to look good in the first place.

As long as the shoes are dainty and show off most of the foot, I don't care about the severity of the angle. Anything else is clownshoes

Agreed. And it doesn't help that I'm sick of Victoria Beckham's perpertually annoyed Angry Face in every goddamn picture I see of her.

They make your legs and butt look weird. Sorry ladies.

A modest heel is nice, but 'stripper' shoes on the street? How about, no?

/They don't even look good on strippers.
 
2012-12-31 09:41:41 AM  
If you want calves, do some calf raises. The weird foreshortened calves that result from a lifetime of wearing heels are not attractive, ladies.

I've never understood the stripper shoe concept. Why the hell make them platform shoes in addition to being high heels? And why make them so gods be damned ugly? And ladies, if you choose to wear heels, get something that actually fits right. It looks dumb as shiat when you wear heels or any other kind of open show where your pinky toe or big toe is falling off the side or front damned things.

It's stage-magician style misdirection.

My theory is that strippers need the weight to balance better on their knees.

/hate the look of stripper shoes
//high heels just make people look like aliens, guess I have an uncanny valley there
///also, the hugger boots just below your knees style of 2012 is extremely unflattering to anyone who weighs more than 80 pounds.

The idiot corporote sent me to work on a loading dock wears heels now and the epic failure of it was probably going to land us in lawsuit land until I told her if she showed up in them again I was going to write her up and send her home without pay.

that was my nickname in highschool: I just don't have the patience for a woman who can't keep up on stairs or uneven ground.


As long as I'm not wearing my fark me shoes with the 5 inch heels, I can keep up and even run. I don't wear heels all the time, but when I do even straight guys notice.

Strippers have faces?

And of course women look better in heels, the shoes may look ridiculous, but they change your posture and make you stick your butt and boobs out.

Foot/shoe fetishists would disagree vehemently with you on that. There's a lot of guys that really get turned on by the right shoes on a lady.

Absolutely... a lot of GIS searches add 'feet' to the celebrity name.

Also, there used to be a web site called 'celebrity feet.' Ewww.

/I never notice shoes, but have gotten jabbed by more that a few heels accidentally in my knee.
 
2012-12-31 11:19:37 AM  
I have this thing where I don't want crippling arthritis by the time I'm 50. Also, go do a GIS for "claw toes." I dare you.
 
2012-12-31 11:36:43 AM  
High heeled shoes, just in terms of making the toe lower than the heel, bunch up and make prominent the calf muscles which some think is attractive because it gives a "more shapely leg".

Height increasing shoes, which include high heels, flat platform shoes, and high heels with toe platforms alter a woman's perceived shape making her look slimmer - they decrease the ratio of of hip-width or ass-size to perceived leg length.

Fatter women look better (slimmer) with height boosting. Slimmer women can look worse because they lose some of the shape of their waist, hips, and ass and become more boyish looking.

2012-12-31 12:35:14 PM  
It's more a matter of how the elevated heels shape a woman's ass and legs...

NSFW

Until you try to actually walk around in them and find that you need to lean on your companion and force them to walk twice as slow as they're comfortable with.  But hey!  At least you look good (while you're standing still or sitting down).

/sees it all the time on the weekends

Researchers at the University of Portsmouth filmed a group of women as they walked on a treadmill, both in flats and high heels.

"So, what do we *hic* do with this new point-light display... thing."
"What if we took women in heels... and then we just sort of watch them."
"BRILLIANT"

/I look forward to their research on elastomers and jumping-jacks.
