The point of high heels is my calves look smashing when I wear them and it turns my GF on. That is all.

high-heels are very stylish things. its like the perfect accessory to finish up your outfit. they are gorgeous =3
plus, sometimes girls wear them to look taller or skinnier.

Haven't read all the comments on this thread, but I imagine most have hit all the relevant points. That said, this is a topic dear to my heart (and other parts), so I must chime in no matter how redundant!

They "lengthen" legs, yes. They "shorten" feet, yep. They augment the appearance of the calves and the butt, yes...yes. They make a shorter girl on par with a lot of men and taller girls into amazons. They can be used to "class up" almost any outfit or make it, er, R-rated (depending on shoe and/or outfit they can make it X-). For those wishing to make an entrance, they're covered both by sight and sound (whenever I hear the click of stilettos a warm shiver thrills through me). I commend any and all women who have taken the act of high heel wearing and made it into a skill, an art. Have you seen what some women can do in heels? I swear some could tightrope walk in them with just a lesson or two.

In case you couldn't tell, I love high heels. The higher the better.

Now. Are they impractical? From a purely utilitarian standpoint, undoubtedly. Are they uncomfortable? I'm sure most are, though I swear some girls would go to sleep in them (I want to meet some of these girls ;p). Anyways, high heels are probably one of the best, hottest, painful, most pointless inventions ever made. And they were surely invented by some dude...who was only slightly more obsessed than me.

Mmmm...yes i admit they look good but i've never really been into them personally but then I only tend to wear Sk8r shoes trainers boots and pumps, simply because there are so practical and comfy. My mum use to love them in her younger days and of course many other women i know do. But i have also heard ladies complain about unwanted unsightly big bunions, the rub heel effect when breaking them in and off course the odd day of falling over or indeed ankle flip whilst in killer heels which is extremly painful and normally results to a trip down the hospital. >.<. Simply not worth the hassle or pain in my opinion. T.o.L! Ps: Yes they can be used for a weapon, i watched someone flip once with a high stiletto in her hand.

Fashion indeed. It wouldn't feel right seeing someone wearing a dress without high heels. =/=

"Look to the heel, young man.The sex is in the heel"

"What's that supposed to mean?

"Sex is in the heel. Stilettos require constant balance from the upper leg causing the muscles of the backside to tense
and appear pert and ready for mating."

I think its mostly cause girls want to look taller, seems pointless to me. Also, on my recent theory (no evidence yet) is that perhaps they want to make injuring themselves roughly 900% more likely and be pitied as such? Also, imagine walking in a forest and a bear decides its hungry.......good luck outrunning that in heels, or climbing a tree for that matter

What I've noticed that no one seems to have mentioned is that high heels are very bad for your feet. Just looking at the angle it places your feet I find it odd how women can keep themselves upright much less how it would be comfortable walking virtually on your toes. Furthermore many are considerably tight or at least they appear so. If it is uncomfortable and actually hurts, why the hell would you continue to wear something that even you know is not good for yourself? Is it because they're simply fashionable and have the potential to make yourself look better?
At the risk of permanent damage to your feet and making yourself seem quite shallow, why would anyone wear them? Quite frankly I think it places women as a whole into a stereotype. If it is to impress someone, then that person very likely doesn't care much for you at all if appearances are all that matters. People are a mystery to me more often than not, high heels are like something invented by masochists so they can cash in.

A girl I knew told me she liked her high heels because it defined her breasts and butt more to attract more men to her.
Needless to say I wouldn't be surprised if that is the purpose of their design, because High heels do seem to draw more attention to those areas by forcing your body into a position that makes those areas protrude more.

Maybe this anatomy chart may help you better understand the point of high heels.
