Danger and beauty.
I LOVE the look of the Stiletto heel – pointy and beautiful with an air of danger. You could put out an eye with that heel or get it stuck in the sidewalk/grate/lawn…
Have you ever tried to walk across a wet-ish lawn in heels? Its like aerating the yard by hand. Soggy and highly unpleasant.
Anyway, back to more beautiful things – a woman has to have confidence to go prancing around in a shoe like this. Especially if you are a woman like me – who happens to be close to 6 ft tall without any help. But there is nothing like a strappy stiletto to make you feel a bit fierce.
The Stiletto heel was named for the Stiletto dagger. That is your free piece of relatively useless trivia for the day.
