French shoe designer Christian Louboutin says wearing high heels is an expression of liberty.
Louboutin helped bring back heels into fashion in the early 1990’s and has vouched for heels to be worn as a sign of self-liberation and femininity.
”To be a woman is also about enjoying one’s freedom to be feminine if you want. Why renounce (high heels) when you can have them and flats,” he said.
High heels allow women to celebrate their own beauty. The different styles, colors, and heights allow a woman to get creative with how she expresses herself. When a woman wears high heels, the look she creates tells a story. High heels may express how a woman may be feeling at that moment. She may be going for a sophisticated work place look or a sultry Saturday night with friends. Of course flats are always safe and stylish, but when a woman wears high heels, she’s letting the world know she’s a risk taker, a force not to be reckoned with.
When you add comfortability to the mix, every woman can ultimately relate to the discomfort that may come with wearing high heels, but that doesn’t halt picking out that 5 inch stiletto pump to strut in for hours at a time. Christian Louboutin says comfort isn’t a factor when designing the classic spike heeled shoes. High heels are rarely about function or practicality, they are artwork meant to be admired. Plus, they aren’t meant to be worn all the time.
There are so many beautiful things about being a woman and high heels give women the opportunity to embrace those things wholeheartedly. High heels transform the way a woman walks, each step exemplifying poise and grace. Christian Louboutin empowers women to stand tall in their high heels and break free of norms. Wearing high heels doesn’t have to be a superficial thing, and more women should feel empowered to wear them. It’s about feeling comfortable in your own skin, embracing every inch of your being, and standing firm in your femininity.
