Times are tough and heels are lower
According to those who know these things women's heel sizes reach new heights when the economy is down. In the 1920s during the Great Depression the height of women’s heel rose, then again, in the 70’s during the oil crisis fashion determined the introduction of the platform shoe. This winter, according to new data fromIBM, the trend will be reversed as ecomomic woes continue and women turn more to kitten heels and flats. Scanning influential fashion blogs, authors generally believe the vogue for the coming months will be lower heels.
