Heel facts
  • High heels have been restricted by law and policy in various places such as schools, museums, and localities such as Mobile, Alabama. Usually the prohibition is due to the particular nature of the floor, which can be dangerous for those who wear high heels. They may be stuck in the planks for example, or if there is vegetation, the roots can be dangerous as you can trip over it. In some places it is forbidden because of safety reasons: high heels are not safe for use on wet surfaces like grass or unpaved roads. So if you're going to a place where there is a risk of slipping on mud, then you should not wear high heels. The same thing applies to ice or snow - you can fall down and hurt yourself if you walk with high-heeled shoes on slippery surfaces.
  • It is not an urban myth! The municipal code of Carmel bans wearing shoes having heels more than 2 inches in height, unless the wearer has obtained a permit for them. The permits are available free of charge at the City Hall! The ban basically delegates responsibility to the person that wears high heels. If you trip and fall because of your heels, you can't sue the city.
  • In Greece, it's illegal to wear high heels when you're touring ancient monuments like the Parthenon and the Acropolis in Athens, or any other historic site. The law was created because of concerns that heels would scratch and damage the stones.
  • High heels are great, but they're not always appropriate. Here are some common situations in which you might want to reconsider your choice of footwear:
    • Airplane: There is no law that prohibits you from traveling in high heels, but it's a good idea to avoid wearing them if you're going to need to evacuate quickly. High heels can be a hazard during an emergency exit situation. And can also be harmful for other people.
    • Car: You should avoid wearing high heels when driving or riding in a car. One false move on the gas pedal or brake could result in serious injury—or worse!
  • Did you know that it's still legal in many countries for a company to require female members of staff to wear high heels at work against their will? In fact, dress code laws are generally more relaxed for men than they are for women. Current formal work dress codes are out-dated and, yes, sexist. They don't take into account the fact that women may want to wear flat formal shoes at work, or that some men may want to wear heels. We need to change these laws so that women have the option to wear flat formal shoes at work, if they wish.

We hope that this short post has been interesting. Don't forget, you can share this article with your friends and ask them to read it, because these are really based on facts.
As you know, heels have never ceased to amaze people and make them laugh with their colors and shapes. We thank all the women who wear high heels so beautifully they make men feel crazy!

But we also want to send a special thank you to Mark Bryan.
Mark Bryan is a man that wears (also) high heels (feel free to look up on Google!), and we love him!

We hope in a future where everybody will be free to be who they are and to wear what they want
