Sex goddess Marilyn Monroe once said: "Although I do not know who first invented high heels, but all women should be grateful to him, high heels cause me great help."

The history of feminist thought that a lot of high heels is a product of the patriarchal society (as the legend is the first man invented high heels, in order to prevent his wife from the home run), should be resisted. But I personally think that since the beginning of the 20th century and the modern history of high heels of women's personality is closely related to the gradual emancipation.

1920s, awareness of modern women's open starting from clothing, women began to abandon the shackles of beam bras, Coco Chanel become a man of fashion, she designed the pants and shirt comfortable and elegant style popular in the West. The shoes sandals designers began to experiment with innovative design and high heels for high-heeled sandals for social dinner was born.

Fashion historian Giorgio Riello and Peter McNeil in "Shoes: A History From Sandals to Sneakers", a book that many women in politics in the 1920s to wear high heels to show the feminine, they wear high-heeled boots and shoes buttons prove to the world, politics will not ignore the feminine.

The last century, during the Great Depression of 30 people who are living in destitution, and therefore must wear shoes. Shoes of this period stronger and simple, but elegant lines still exist. Baotou luxury high-heeled shoes in the feet of actress Ginger Rogers shine.

I wonder if you have not seen a movie called "KINKY BOOTS", one of the DRAG QUEEN Laura wearing pointed high-heeled pair of red boots, but started from the Shang Shi's British pop, oh. But this type of boots from the start, and go-go dancer (stripper, there is something called go-go boots, and that rough or flat boots with), or SM and other sexual culture directly linked.

As the 20th century, the invention of the 60s miniskirt, boots (such as go-go boots) plus one piece combination of high waist skirt, gradually became popular, to make up for short skirt legs caused by too much visual space .

But that era is the prevalence of feminism, many women believe that high-heeled shoes like this fine woman is simply a disgrace, a man bound a woman's instrument, should be resisted. So to the late 60s, along with the spread of hippie culture, colorful thick crust once again return to the popular high-heeled shoes.

By the 1970s wave of high-heeled shoes with thick soles with drugs, sexual liberation and so popular in the West Asian cultural products. At that time both men and women, a large number of young men will be wearing a bright psychedelic colors and graphics, costumes, and people often wear similar to ancient Greece and Rome called kothorni and chopine a high-soled shoes.

Really began to become popular again and platform shoes, thanks to the British girl band Spice Girls, is a popular platform shoes to make their streets.
