Go sky high

How high are your heels? My comfortable net heel is max 9 cm. Everything above that is perfect for sitting and looking beautiful, but not for walking.

Based on a market research done by Compeed, the British women are the bravest of them all. They totter about in the highest heels in Europe (average of 8,5 cm). And they dont mind suffering for it: almost two thirds (65 per cent) of British women cited blisters as a significant source of pain resulting from wearing high heels. A good market for Compeed I guess.

The Spanish fashionistas were very close to the British in their love of height, wearing an average heel of 8 cm. Compared to that, The French and German woman are more conservative with average heels between 6 cm and 7 cm.

We have to admit that high heels are most of the time very uncomfortable, but you can’t deny the power kick it gives you. “Research has suggested that a tall woman is considered more assertive, confident, richer, capable, successful, independent and even more intelligent than her shorter peers.” That’s all we need to know. Case closed!
