Haha, not for the horse obviously Tongue

The high heels allow you to contort your legs in the stirrups to a greater degree while maintaining control. I could shoot 360* while in a pretty good gallop without much difficulty at all.

High heels originate in Persia sometime at or before the 9th Century for exactly this reason.

How very interesting.

I just googled this subject and found a photo of these 16th century Persian shoes for horseback riding.

These obviously aren't meant for walking. I can see how the heel would fit around a stirrup, almost like a hook. I Learned something new today.

RE: High Heeled Shoes
I used to wear much higher heels in my 20's but now only got for low 1 1/2 inch heels. I will often wear trainers (sneakers) though.

Parking at Lennox DOES suck. I can get Louboutins at Green Hills mall in Nashville or The Summit in Birmingham. Green Hills is fun for window shopping and people watching. My cousin got a pair for her first wedding anniversary - me so jealous.

I have one moderately priced pair of shoes - can't wear them anymore Sad They were difficult for even me to walk in, and I don't wanna wear them without a man to hang onto for fear of falling. They were fabulous. Covered in silver glitter with giant bows on the back - 4 1/2" or 5" stiletto. They were my Christmas party/New Years Eve/sexy times shoes.

A lot of the female attendings wear Louboutins at the hospital. I'm personally not a fan of dress attire for patient interaction nor white coats. Infection control. Infection control. Infection control. Everyone should be in scrubs. Seeing a doc in a suit and tie reaaally bugs the hell out of me unless they're there for a meeting. I think, when's the last time you had that tie or white coat laundered, and with how many patients have you interacted? Don't lean across my patient's fresh sternal incision with that tie. Ick.

I think a nurse I know turned in an attending once for wearing a tie, letting it hang all over her patient, and not washing his hands. Pretty gross. (I heard the name "Loubiton" ... I used to think it was a mispronunciation of Louis Vitton .. or however he spells it). Facepalm

I basically agree with Pablo on this one. Tongue Although my view is not really black and white, I haven't given it that much thought.

Yup, I have (or had rather, gone from country livin' to the city for a spell now as it were) a pair very similar to that. I could keep the horse in a gallop while I notched the arrow. Could draw and turn at the hips and I'd have a full 360* unobstructed view before I loosed. Got not too bad at it truth be told. Garbage compared to my sword work but I was always freakishly good at that.

I uh....I had a strange childhood.

RE: High Heeled Shoes
Have you noticed how some women look like they're walking all akimbo in high heels? Like a Paso Fino horse about to fall over. Heels are sexy but only if you know how to glide across the floor.

One of my pet peeves is women who wear heels and have absolutely no idea how to operate them. The step should be seamless, like the shoe is an extension of your leg and foot.

Only a three year old looks cute clomping around in high heels. A grown woman should practice till her walk looks (and sounds) natural.
