@nutomic @SouthernGothHick @anna oh sorry! High heels were a thing originally designed for and worn by aristocrat men to make them look tall and important. At some point the fashion started getting adopted by men of lower classes, eventually causing the aristocrats to drop the practice entirely.

The style was later brought back in modern times by a fashion designer who cemented the style as exclusively feminine.

I don't have names and links on hand right :(
