My generation came of age during the rise of feminism, and one of the facets of traditional womanhood that it attacked was fashion. In particular, the dogma opposed high-heeled shoes. While they apparently make the foot and leg look seductive to males, for the wearer they misalign the spine, cause bunions and warp the foot in other ways, and result in insecure footing.
But if you thought stilettos were a bad idea, you ain't seen nothing. Can this crop
of offensive shoe designs have any purpose at all except a misogynistic one? What's next, foot binding?
