Do you know about the origins of your favorite shoe? The High Heel wasn’t always just for women. In fact, high heels were originally worn by both men and women. The lengthened heel gave men more stability when riding horses by keeping their feet securely in their stirrups. In the 18th century, everyone was on board with this famous style, even children.
Love red high heels? Well, France in the 1670s would not have been your ideal place. Louis XIV made a law that only members of the royal court could wear red heels. This was his way of separating commoners from royalty.
Good thing we don’t live in 17th century France or Christian Louboutin lovers would be out of luck!
