No, its not all in your head that women with a higher heel seem to always get what they want. Thanks to a provocative new study from France by Nicolas Guéguen, a psychologist at the Université de Bretagne-Sud in Rennes, that tested the effect high heels had on men, we now have scientific proof of it.
The study asked brunette women to wearing identical clothing with either flats, two-inch heels, and four-inch heels and to record any data from interactions with unfamiliar men. The woman wearing four-inch heels had a much higher rate than the women wearing flats to get random men to pause for a second to take a small survey. While women passersby stopped at an equal rate no matter which shoes the women participants were wearing. The reason behind this? It seems to suggest a subconscious sexiness associated with heels that men find irresistible.
So, next time you have an important date or are trying to get something done, do not forget the seductive power of heels!
