High heels are the work of the devil. I’ve often wondered who invented the damned things. I know they’ve been around for a long time. Henry VIII wore shoes with large toe areas and was able to make it the fashion instead of the pointy, high-heeled shoes that were popular in the area. Would that we all had that power.
Someone somewhere decided that these torture devices were desirable. My guess is that person was a man. I only wonder why we women prolong the style.
