mpractical, painful and at times infuriating. Yet high heels have the power to make most of us feel like a supermodel strutting down the runway. The acronym I have given to the five best reasons for loving high heels seems not just clever, but appropriate — CHASE.

They enhance Confidence: High heels make any outfit look better and can make a woman look more assertive, which in turn makes her feel more confident. The shoes draw favorable attention to the woman, her clothing and personal style. This improves how she feels about herself.

They add Height: Who can resist a few inches of stature? Petite women may want to match their height to a taller companion. To be taller is to feel more confident. One pair of favorite shoes instantly makes a woman statuesque.

They draw Attention: Stylish heels like stilettos tend to draw the most attention from both genders. Men love how women look in heels, and women love to watch other women and compare styles. A great pair of heels can draw compliments and a little envy.

They make us look Svelte: Most everyone enjoys losing a few pounds, without exercising. By adding height when wearing heels, women usually are more aware of how they must carry themselves and this creates a visual illusion of looking slimmer. I’ll take it!

 

They Elongate the legs and Elevate the buttocks: We all love our legs when they look amazing, and a derrière that looks higher and more toned is more than welcome. The footwear accentuates a woman’s calves, which in turn make the legs look longer and leaner. The posture and gait, also are transformed, making us appear more seductive. The sexy look comes, in part, because the shoes can help tone some of the muscles in our legs.

 

A women with good shoes is never ugly. They are the last touch of elegance.
