  • High Heels Disadvantages

  • Many, attempting to totter around wearing high heels, fall down damaging ankles and legs. While this still does happen in flat shoes, it tends to be much reduced, which is why women are a lot more likely to fall down than men when partying, because men almost always wear flat shoes.

  • A tip that many use is to take a second pair of shoes wherever they go for use when sitting down. High are then used for photo opportunities or when standing next to taller people only, reducing the ache that they can cause with prolonged use. This is a good idea for attending weddings and the like, where heels are best for the procession and ceremony, but not so good for celebrating afterward.

  • Walking In High Heels

  • High heeled shoes are hard to walk in, even with practice. They tend to focus the entire weight of the body onto the heels which makes balancing a lot more difficult. This also puts more of a strain on the legs/ankles and can result in aching muscles and sprains. Not to mention that they often become painful after a few hours of wearing and need to be removed due to rubbing on the foot.

  • Being higher off the ground than usual can be useful for being on the same level as taller people, although falling from a height is much more painful. Because they are harder to balance in than flat shoes, high heels often cause a lot of accidental falls, particularly when combined with a slippery surface.

  • The fact that they are hard to regain balance on is also a bad point about the design. As with flat shoes it is possible to regain your balance after a stumble. The impact of trying to regain footing suddenly in high heel is concentrated in a single point, meaning falling or twisting your ankle becomes much more likely. This is also what causes many people to snap heels off, as the heels can’t stand the sudden pressure of someone falling onto them. High heels are only suitable for solid ground and can’t be used on soft ground, in wet conditions or even on slick surfaces. Long thin high heels on soft grass will simply leave you impaled in the ground when you walk and will make balancing even harder.

  • Deeping upright on a highly polished floor such as marble or a tiled bathroom can be difficult. A night out can become a danger when it rains and you have to walk outside where slippery wet pavements can lead to falling.

  • Another disadvantage of high heeled shoes is that they simply don’t last as long as flat shoes tend to because the heel either wears down quickly or breaks off. Heels can break off from falling; getting them caught in things like sewer grates or just from stepping awkwardly on them. The fact that the weight is focused on the heel rather than being dispersed throughout the whole sole of the shoe also means that the heels wear down a lot faster than other shoes would.

  • High heels can’t be worn by everyone due to their height enhancing nature. Naturally tall people tend to look too tall and verging on the ridiculous when wearing high heels.
