Perfect Heel Height (PHH)
According to Emma Supple (podiatrist), there is a simple three-step formula to calculate the perfect heel height (PHH).
1) Take off your shoes, sit down and hold one leg straight out in front of you keeping your foot relaxed. If your foot sits at a right angle to your leg without dangling then you have less mobility and will be more comfortable in a pair of flats. However, if the top of your foot follows the line of your leg then you are a natural heel wearer.
2) You’ll need a friend for this next part. To find your ideal heel height, get someone to place a tape measure from your heel in a straight line on the floor, then place a pencil at the ball of your foot at right angles to the tape.
3) Wherever the tape measure hits the pencil reveals your PHH.
