In the 9th century horse-riding warriors in the Middle East first used high heels for functionality, because they help hold the rider's foot in the stirrups. They really weren’t thinking about making their legs look longer. For the latest and greatest in women’s shoes Fashion Passion has what you want… no, what you need. And not just high heels.

Today, high heels are typically worn, with heights varying from a kitten heel of 1.5 inches to a stiletto heel of five inches or more. Extremely high-heeled shoes, such as those higher than six inches, are normally worn only for aesthetic reasons and are not practical and potentially dangerous to the wearer.. High heels have seen significant controversy in the medical field lately, with many podiatrists seeing patients whose severe foot problems have been caused almost exclusively by high-heel wear.
Types of heels found on high-heeled footwear include:
Cone: a round heel that is broad where it meets the sole of the shoe and noticeably narrower at the point of contact with the ground.
Kitten: a short, slim heel with maximum height under 2 inches and diameter of no more than 0.4 inch at the point of contact with the ground.
Prism: three flat sides that form a triangle at the point of contact with the ground.
Puppy: thick square block heel approximately 2 inches in diameter and height.
Spool or louis: broad where it meets the sole and at the point of contact with the ground; noticeably narrower at the midpoint between the two.
Stiletto: a tall, slim heel with minimum height of 2 inches and diameter of no more than 0.4 inch at the point of contact with the ground.
Wedge: occupies the entire space under the arch and heel portions of the foot.
Any case for wearing high heels is based almost exclusively on visual reasons. Some reasons for wearing high heels are that they:
Change the angle of the foot with respect to the lower leg, which accentuates the appearance of calves;
Change the wearer's posture, requiring a more upright carriage and altering the gait in what is considered a seductive fashion;
Make the wearer appear taller;
Make the legs appear longer;
Make the foot appear smaller;
Make the toes appear shorter;
Make the arches of the feet higher and better defined;
According to a single line of research, they may improve the muscle tone of some women's pelvic floor, thus possibly reducing female incontinence, although these results have been disputed.
Offer practical benefits for people of short stature in terms of improving access and using items,
A 2008 study by Cerruto et al. reported results that suggest that wearing high heels may improve the muscle tone of a woman's pelvic floor.. The authors speculated that this could have a beneficial effect on female stress urinary incontinence.
