High Heel Pumps
“I don’t know who invented high heels, but all women owe him a lot”. Well Marilyn, you got it right, that is the sentiment of every shoe lover ever. High heels have been an indispensable part of the fashion industry and consequently, the consumers of fashion since centuries. The higher, the better is a motto abided by the famous Christian Louboutin and his followers over time. From the daring stiletto, elegant pumps, classic platforms, safe wedges to the trendy cone and slingbacks and the even trendier cut out heels, it is safe to say that high heels have always dominated the shoe industry for women. The latest news in the shoe industry is the arrival of the eccentric clear strap heels, which was rediscovered by Kanye West in his collection Yeezy and is now flourishing due to the immense promotion of his extremely influential partner Kim Kardarshian West.
An interesting fact to note is that high heels were originally worn by men. As early as the 10th century, horseback riding cultures wore heels on their boots and shoes, the Persian cavalry wore high heels which led to heels being associated with the upper class. In the 17th century, upper -class and middle-class women began wearing heels. This is when the heels started getting gendered in their designs with the men’s heel getting broad and sturdy and the woman’s heel becoming tapered and decorative.
