Hot on their heels


Ever wondered how they do it? Italian women walking on high heel mules, like floating over the cobblestoned streets in Rome while you are thinking whether throwing your flats away or going ahead and cutting your whole aching feet off after your first sightseeing day. It happened to me.

Is it genetic? Can it be learned?

If it is genetic there are other countries in which women seem to master it as well. Brazil, for instance. Last Friday I was at a summer party organized by C2-Concerts and the Stadtkultur-Stuttgart, the party theme was Brazil and there were some samba dancers amazingly moving on those heels (and plateaus) you can see in the pictures above.  Is there a trick? Painkillers maybe?
