High Heels...A requirement?

More on high heels.

We think high heel wear is largely geographical. Dr Ivo lives in the mountains of Colorado and rarely sees ANYONE in high heels, even at social events. Dr Allen, in Chicago, sees plenty of them.

Their popularity may be waning but the problems continue (see yesterdays post here). Required to wear them? Really?

"At the 2015 Cannes Film Festival, multiple women—some with medical conditions—were famously turned away from screening events for wearing rhinestone flats rather than heels. Cocktail waitresses at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, CT, complied with their employer’s 2-inch heel requirement for decades until their union successfully quashed it in 2013. A similar 2015 case in East London, involving a receptionist sent home for failing to wear shoes with a 2- to 4-inch heel, led to union involvement as well as scrutiny of prime minister Theresa May’s well-known fondness for kitten heels. And in 2013, the US Defense Intelligence Agency—helmed at the time by Lt. Gen. Mike Flynn, president-elect Donald Trump’s choice for national security advisor—included a “no flats” policy among its dress-code requirements for women."
