Computational modeling based on finite element analysis is a useful tool for understanding foot and footwear biomechanics (Cheung et al. 2009; Kirby 2001). The knock-on effect of heel height and high-heeled shoe donning and walking on the foot are investigated in this chapter. 1 Introduction There are many reasons ladies want to wear high heels. The primary reason for increasing the heel height of the shoe is to add an extra degree of attractiveness. Whether women are standing or walking, wearing high-heeled shoes creates an optical illusion of a smaller foot, shapes the contour of the ankle and leg, contributes to a long-legged look, thrusts the buttocks backwards, and increases height to generate the sensation and appearance of power and status.

These measurements were, in general, comparable, but the FE model predicted a slightly larger magnitude. The peak plantar pressure region shifted from the central heel region to the central forefoot region with a 3-inch heel for both FE and F-scan measurements. There was a general increase in maximum von Mises stress in foot bones with increasing heel height. 7. Peak von Mises stress appeared at the plantar junction of the calcanealcuboid joint. In the forefoot region, relatively high von Mises stresses concentrated at the second to the fourth metatarsal shafts as well.
