The drama of the 21st century women – what is better – wearing flat, convenient shoes or wearing high heels, enabling us with graciousness and confidence? The answer is as easy as the answer to every existential question like “What`s the meaning of life” or “The bird or the egg”. These are some of the advantages and the disadvantages of both types:
Usually they are more convenient for walking and they are associated with comfort. I believe that even the greatest high-heels lovers have at least one pair of shoes in their wardrobe! However, no matter they are comfortable, wearing only flat shoes might cause some health problems such as fallen arches, which means the entire sole of the foot might become almost flat. This is accompanied by pain and inability for long walks.
Without hesitation, high heels give a different look to the whole outfit. They make the feet look smaller and the legs longer, give height and graciousness and last, but not least they help in achieving a better posture. However, the high heels come with their risks. Wearing high heels might cause some serious health problems like severe back and leg pain, together with feet deformations. In addition, we should not forget about the inevitable risks brought by their instability.
In conclusion, it seems that balance is the answer!
