  1. I thought we already knew why high heels make a woman more attractive. It's because they make her legs look longer and sleeker like a barbie doll. No?

  2. Well, that is the standard explanation, but I don't think I have seen a paper that supports it one way or the other. It certainly sounds sensible, but there are other possibilities. Maybe heels increase hip rotation during walking, enhancing the typically feminine gait?
