Transcript: High Heels Amber Dorney A walk through the history of the iconic shoe High Heels Spatial Distribution Where did heels come from? In the 14th century, more elaborate shoe design became popular for men in Europe, particularly areas such as Italy and Spain, as their clothing became more form- fitted. This style was adapted throughout the century in these western European countries, and such designs were worn strictly as a symbol of social or economic class. Where did they go? In the 1600s, heeled shoes gained popularity throughout England and North America, as King Louis XIV introduced high heels as a fashion statement, with elaborate designs depicting the scenes of a battlefield or from nature. In the 17th century, heeled shoes designed specifically for females were relesed, expanding the distribution of sales greatly throughout Europe and North America. Where are they now? High heels are now worn all over the world by people of all economic status, escpecially in MEDCs, where women choose to wear heels to work or just day-to-day. They are now worn primarily as a fashion choice/statement. Advancements in Telecommunications The introdution of the internet allowed for a new age of advertising, and shoe trends were able to travel across the world through word of mouth, physically and online. Globally known designer brands were able to get their names to countries all over the world. Role of TNCs TNCs have expanded the market for high heels, making them cheaper to produce and more easily accessible. The growing popularity of heels in the modern day however, is greatly a result of globally renowned shoe designers. eg. Louboutin, Steve Madden They transformed the identity of the shoe into a desirable statement piece that anyone can wear. Technological Advancements New technology has allowed the pain that comes from wearing heels to be minimised. Companies are designing new styles that take away the pressure from the ball of the foot, where 70% of theweight is carried in heels. How have the people embraced, adapted or resisted high heels today? What was once a shoe worn only by men and royalty is now found in almost every woman's wardrobe. Some women believe heels bring empowerment, while others see it as another expectation set by the patriarchy. Many women see wearing heels as an expression of empowerment and authority. Many women see it as an oppurtunity to express their femininity in male dominated businesses. It has now become more culturally accepted for men to wear heels as well, as femininity has become something to be proud of, not a sign of inferiority. FOR In the everlasting fight for equality between men and women, some women see heels as a tool to inferiorise females, in order to make them weaker Throughout the 19th century, as women began to work in male dominated offices, it was a requirement for them to wear heels. This no longer exists in most work places, and some women choose to wear more 'masculine' clothing, in order to portray their equal ability. Heels reshape the wearer's posture, and many see this as unnatural or unhealthy AGAINST How has media shaped peoples perception of Heels? Heels are seen as a symbol of femininity in the modern day, but also one of power and success, with almost all well known female celelbrities donning heels for public events. Beauty has become assosciated with empowerment and individuality. Throughout their existence, heels have always been a symbol of wealth and class. With the ability to produce them so cheaply and quickly in the modern day, with assitance from TNCs, the 'classy' look is something many women can afford. Recently, wearing brand names has become a symbol of wealth eg. Louboutin 'Red Bottoms', mentioned in Cardi B's 'Bodak Yellow', are a highly desired wardrobe piece for many women in MEDCs, as the signature red soles are a subtle, classy way of showing-off how much money you spent on your shoes.
