During the Renaissance in Venice, noblewomen and courtesans wore special platform shoes, called chopines, that were up to 20 inches tall. As women risked falling down in the street, a law was passed there to limit heels to 3 inches, although shoemakers ignored it. When commoners started wearing heels, their height was regulated according to the status of the wearer: no more than 1/2 an inch for those on the lower end of the social strata!


The first high heels were actually boots. In the 10th century in Persia, they were worn by calvary men who discovered that a tall heel hooked securely around a saddle stirrup and made for easier riding. Those in the midst of battle could hang on to their horses for protection without falling off.


The first heels appeared 400 years ago.
