How Evolution Explains High-Heeled Shoes

For some of us, this article might be the work of Captain Obvious, but it's interesting to see researchers coming to the same conclusions so many of us in the CD community arrived at ages ago:

The researchers report that, while wearing high-heeled shoes, the women “walked in a fashion more characteristic of female gait.” Specifically, “walkers in high heels took smaller, more frequent steps,” and this reduction in the length of their stride was accompanied by “increased rotation and tilt of the hips.”

Dressing resumes tomorrow and don't forget to vote in the poll (details here)!
