I'll give you my reasoning's but don't just take my word for it, science says so too.
So here's the juice
A new study in the journal, Archives of Sexual Behaviour
Conducted by Nicholas Gueguen in the department of social behaviour at the University of Bretagne, presented three experiments using French women identically dressed in black suits with straight skirts and white shirts, they were also all brunettes. The only differences between the women were their shoes.
First, the women—wearing either black flats with no heel, black shoes with a 2 inch heel or black pumps with a 3.5 inch heel—approached several people and asked them for assistance. The women switched shoes after soliciting every 10 people.
When a 19-year-old woman approached men between ages 25 and 50, asking for their help with a survey on gender equality, she garnered the most responses when she wore the highest heels—83% of the men she approached agreed to spend three to four minutes answering her questions, compared to nearly half as many, 47%, when she wore flat shoes. Surprised?
So women were also tested to see their response, turns out that 33% of women on average said yes to the survey request when approached by another woman, regardless of the heel height. Heel height had no effect on women.
This study was conducted by straight men and women which is important to note as results would different across bi's, lesbians etc.
In general women don't see what men see in terms of how heels can increase attractiveness.
If you can, when asking for advice on what to wear, it's best to ask the sex you're trying to attract as they filter thoughts and attractiveness differently than friends do.
Juicy? It gets even better
A glove dropping test where women dropped gloves intentionally in front of men was also conducted. A whopping 93% of men chased after the women when they wore high heels to return the glove, compared to 62% of those who did when she wore flat shoes.
What you need to know
High heels help create your feminine side. In general men love feminine women, not saying weak women, but feminine women, there's a difference. I'll get into that in another post if y'all want but basically the feminine allows men to be naturally what they are with women, men. Which doesn't sound surprising does it?
Men have a lot of pride which is why they also have big ego's (not all of course) as this protects their manhood so playing the feminine role is incredibly fulfilling and easy for men to absolutely adore. (Golden Nugget Info, I might be Hitch rn).
Heels display your femininity and it reminds men of your inner fox.
Okay, so now you're asking why is this?
You see, heels display a woman's sexual energy whether women are aware of it or not. The majority of us are coded by mother nature to attract the opposite sex in order to continue our population on earth, it's something we do innately and there are even female and male roles in same-sex couples so it's no wonder that the study shows that men are more eager to help women who wear high heels than women are at helping other women.
And when I say sexual energy it doesn't mean in a physical sense although it can be, but it simply means making conversations a little lighter, a little flirtier and creates that much needed attraction that fuels the interaction. And let's be honest, without it it's just too boring. Just keepin' it 100.
What I will say is that wearing heels is so underrated and subtle that the best way I can explain it is kind of like when men wear suits, most of the times men aren't even aware that women find men so damn sexy in a suit and you're thinking to yourself if only men knew how good they looked in a suit and how much more you wish your partner wore one, happens ALL the time.
I'm simply here letting y'all ladies know heels are exactly that for men but men are less aware of all these signals and their feelings so they don't know exactly what it is making them feel the way they do.
Which is why I created Abuzé, a collection of heels that got me feeling some sort of way. You have your classic heels which are timeless and then you have faux snakes skins heels to lace up heels to red heels and rose gold heels. Surprisingly wedges in all colours such as your white wedges, black wedges and even the nude wedges all have the same effect.
