Some people may complain that wearing high heels can warp your feet, strain your legs, and ruin your ability to walk for life. While some of these points can be true, there are several good reasons to wear high heels occasionally. Before the high heel naysayers get too ahead of themselves, and begin to raid closets everywhere, here are a few benefits of wearing high heels.
The Physical Benefits
High heels bring with them numerous physical benefits in addition to the couple of detractions. They increase your height, make your legs look longer, and sway your hips in an almost enthralling way. And, of course, there is the best physical benefit of wearing high heels: the clicking noise they make when you are walking on any flat surface, one of a woman’s designated power noises. While high heels can place your feet in an unnatural and at times uncomfortable position, they can help you physically as well.
The Psychological Benefits
Let’s just face it: a large part of why women wear high heels is for the psychological benefits they can bring. If you put all of the physical benefits together, these can add up to an impressive increase in your confidence. When you feel taller, sexier, and more powerful, you feel capable of handling any challenge that comes strutting down the runway of your life. Some days, a little foot discomfort could definitely be worth a boost in confidence.
With these benefits in mind, you need not feel bad about wearing high heels any longer! Just remember not to wear them all the time. The naysayers may not be completely justified in banning your fashionable high heels, but they do have a point or two.
