The other day I was sitting in a Starbucks with a few ‘businessMen’ associates of mine. Suddenly, out of the corner of my eye, I noticed this woman walk into the store. Something about her demanded my attention immediately. Her Shoes!
Her shoes were very high, black, and with a cuff around the ankle. I turned my glance her way. But why? She wasn’t particularly attractive. Her body was an average looking body. Her dress was just above the knee, but not really short. Her hair, and her face were not note worthy. It was her shoes, and the way they made her entire package look.
Suddenly every man at my table turned to glance up and down as she walked by, without losing a beat of our conversation. I was surprised that it made me squirm in my chair. What is it, I wondered during the remainder of our meeting?
I continued to watch her as she walked up to the counter to place her order. Then I watched her as she walked over to the ‘fix it’ counter. And then when she walked over to a table to sit down, arrange her drink, and then cross her legs, displaying her shoes where all could see. She had command of the room. I was mesmerized. Why?
The shoes definitely made her butt sit up and protrude out so that when she walked you could not help but to notice the movement of her rump. But then again, the shoes also made the muscle in her calf flex, demanding attention to her legs. I was puzzled.
Is there something I am not aware of that these magic slippers seem to stimulate to the on-looker? Could it be an intention they denote in the mind of both man and woman? Or is it just because they make a woman look more dressed up: more special, some how?
From the time a little girl can walk, she longs to slip into her mommy’s high heels. Clump around feeling pretty, or maybe just grownup. And for sure: daddy notices. But why? Why the high heels?
Maybe you could explain this to me. I would love to know what you think, and how this phenomenon affects you!
