Many people know the phrase Marilyn Monroe that a girl can conquer the whole world with a pair of stiletto heels. Modern scientists have decided experimentally to find out whether high heels and attractiveness are really connected, or is this just another stereotype established in society.
It is considered that French men know almost everything about female attractiveness, it is not in vain that France is considered the most romantic country. That is why it is not surprising that the French psychologist Nicolas Gügen from the University of Southern Brittany took up the study of the influence of heel height on female attractiveness.
The scientist found out that the attractiveness of a woman in the eyes of a man depends on the height of her heels. Representatives of the strong half of humanity really more closely relate to women who wear high-heeled shoes. To confirm his hypothesis, the scientist asked young volunteer girls to wear heels with heights of 0.5, 5 and 9 cm. These girls had to persuade passers-by men on the street to take part in a poll.
During the experiment, it turned out that girls on heels with a height of 0.5 cm were persuaded to take part in the survey of 46.7% of men, girls on heels with a height of 5 cm - 63% of men, and girls on the highest heels responded positively to 83% of men. The scientist also found out that men in bars get acquainted with women on heels faster.
Nicolas Gügen notes that such a simple experiment shows that heels really make women more beautiful in the eyes of men. At the same time, women’s advocates have opposed heels for decades now. They believe that heels make men perceive women only as a sexual object.
Heels: world records and achievements
Today, the most incredible trends appear in sport. A striking example is the races in heels, world records and achievements in which, as you might guess, women reach. Under the astonished looks of the crowd, they overcome a stretch of walkway in order to prove that high heels do not prevent them from playing sports.

She got the main prize - 10 thousand euros. It is noteworthy that the requirement for participation in competitions is the presence of shoes with heels not lower than 7 centimeters and a width of not more than 1.5 centimeters.
Another record, but already at a distance of 80 meters, was set in Sydney in 2010. Heels running here won 4 girls who ran the distance in 64 seconds. In total, about 100 women and even one man took part in the competition. The result of the winners was listed in the Guinness Book of Records.
