This is the "ULTRA" version of the general "All About Wearing High Heels" web site,
which was regularly ranked as one of the top 10 web sites for "high heels" by Google and Yahoo!
in the years 2001 through 2006.
It was also the #1 web site for "high heels" by Google for some of those years.
The ULTRA version includes more information about footwear with very high heels referred to as "ultra high heels"
(also known as "super high heels", "megaheels", "extreme heels", "skyscraper heels", etc.).
The minimum height varies according to shoe size. For a women's size 5 (USA) shoe, the heel usually has to be at least 5 inches
high without any platform.
The additional information can be found in the "Bizarre" and "Ultra High Heels" web pages.
There is also the addition of the "Ballet Shoes and Boots with Heels" web page.
OUR MISSION, BELIEFS and OPINIONS
Our mission is to help "document" everything about wearing high heel footwear,
whether it is in favor of or against them. We try to be unbiased.
The aim for this web site is to help promote the book titled "All About Wearing High Heels" and
to provide additional material regarding high heel footwear that was not present in the book (for various reasons).
We believe that high heel footwear has both undeniable positive points as well as undeniable negative points.
Unfortunately, WEARING HIGH HEELS IS DANGEROUS TO THE WEARER'S HEALTH.
Therefore, we do not "recommend" wearing high heel footwear.
However, at the same time, we do not "condemn" wearing high heel footwear.
In regards to the positive points, high heels can help make girls/women look more beautiful, sexy and attractive.
The fact that high heels have been worn by contestants in the annual Miss America/Miss USA/Miss Universe beauty pageants
confirms or supports these positive points.
Also, high heels can obviously make a person taller, which can be desirable or even an asset in some situations.
In regards to the negative points, foot doctors have been warning people to not wear high heels for decades because
wearing high heels can cause foot problems and possibly, other health problems.
The human body is a holy temple of God and anything that hurts it is bad (especially, in a spiritual sense).
High heels are material or physical things. So, wearing high heels by choice is being materialistic.
Wearing high heels unfortunately does not help with spiritual advancement.
So, it is wise for people to NOT wear high heel footwear.
However, the fact that high heel footwear has been used for several centuries indicates
that high heels have a place in this world (i.e., material world).
History also tells us the use of high heel footwear will probably continue for a long time into the future and
that there will be girls/women, who will wear high heels regardless of any warnings and danger.
Considering that, we believe that there are ways to help girls/women avoid or minimize many of the problems
associated with high heels.
There are some women who wear high heels on a regular basis (or as their normal or usual footwear).
If you live in a big city, you may know of or seen some of these women.
Some women have even claimed to wear "only" high heels and even, wear high heels "24x7".
So, the question to ask is: how do they avoid the problems that plague so many other high heel wearers?
The fact that high heel footwear is included in (and a big part of) modern day women's fashion
means that it is totally acceptable for women to wear high heels anywhere in public at anytime,
but what about men???? There appears to be growing number of men wearing high heels in public.
Boys/men should have just as much right to wear high heels as girls/women.
We support equality between sexes, freedom and respect for each and every person's choice
to wear high heel footwear, if desired.
