I'm not sure what the obsession is with heels is on this forum. I'd rather see a girl make smart/practical footwear choices than hobble along in heels all day because she's too vain to wear anything less. Heels have their place but I can't say I'd want to see a girl in them all the time. Personally, if I were a girl, I'd refuse to ever wear anything so uncomfortable. Flats have a time and a place but damn if Heels don't look better 99% of the time. Posture and proportions are better in heels. I can't believe you'd rather have a girl wear orthopedics (smart and comfortable) than heels.
