High heels attract men. Right? Well, according to a new study conducted by experts at Northumbria University, men don’t necessarily notice women in heels; and some most definitely don’t notice if they’re Salvotore ferragamo or Christian Louboutins. Well, some men. The study looked at the reactions of males watching women ages 18 to 35 walking in high heels and flats. And while one would think the guys would notice the subtle lift on the calf muscle and change in overall posture and strut that comes with sporting a heel, they didn’t. But before some of you pack away your pumps, the study is based on a woman’s walk alone and not the actual ‘sexy allure’ that heels give us. And in actuality most men love the look of a woman in heels, even if they don’t notice the difference in your strut with or without them. Still, we all know, there’s something about a nice pair of pumps that sneakers just can’t or won’t ever be able to provide. But who’s to say we can’t flaunt a pair of sneakers and look and feel almost just as sexy?
