Acording to a new repert, British women wear the highest heels in Europe.
…and it seems the furthest north you go in England , the higher the heel. So as a good northern girl I always loved my high heels.
Is is said that we Brits wear high heels to compensate for being small, but I think it is more we like to feel sexy and feminine.
About three years ago I developed a condition called plantar fashiitis, a very painful and disabling foot condition which is chronic inflammation of the ligament that supports the arch of your foot. So as you can imagine, I was not able to wear normal flat shoes, let alone high heels.
I developed this condition after spending a month walking the streets of Paris and the long, hard corridors and steps of the metro. No wonder the French are at the bottom of the list!
So imagine how my femininity was threatened by not being able to wear sexy shoes……I needed counselling!
So after three years of wearing inserts in my shoes , never going barefoot, and crocs when it gets really bad the condition is about 80% better and I finally found two pairs of high heels I can wear and the secret of these shoes is that they have small platforms so they are actually not a high as they seem..
Ok they are not JCCFMP heels ( google it!) but they make me feel a woman again !

I must say, I all but gave up wearing heels after moving here, due to cobblestones and not having a car so walking a lot. You may have seen on my blog, I recently bought a pair of fold-up shoes from Redfoot in the UK (I think Preston or thereabouts, actually!) which you wear out and then pop in your handbag (they fold up very small) and you switch to your heels when you're at the restaurant/office/bar/etc. It's great that you found lovely new shoes you can actually wear, but maybe that's an idea if you ever find some other tempting but crippling ones!
Gwan, Maybe another reason why British women wear higher heel is that they don't do a lot of walking!I remebered your post so here is a referece for others.http://gwannelsandiego.blogspot.co.uk/2012/06/you-can-drink-your-wine-and-eat-it-too.htmlThose fold up shoes look good and would accommodate my inserts, so I mught investigate. Thanks for the tip.Love Denise
I feel the higher the heel, the smaller my ass, and the longer my legs look. I'm all about getting propped up! It's interesting that English woman wear higher heels than the French, and that the French are the lowest on the scale! I guess French women really do love their ballet flats.I googled JCCFMP heels and it brought me back to your blog! At least in the States it does. What does this mean? Thanks for following and introducing yourself! I'm excited to have a new blog on my reading list! : )
Good for you Denise that you can at least wear a heel again – sadly, I can no longer wear them because of my knee – I do miss wearing heels as I never really feel "dressed up" unless I have high heels on – oh well, at least I get to go out!! LOL! What's that saying about making lemonade???!! Really, I'm just grateful to be "mobile"!!! Mademoisella – LOL on the comment!!!
