Any study that 's published in the journal Evolution and Human Behavior and done by researchers at the University of Portsmouth sounds impressive right?  But this one isn't about finding the cure for the common cold, no this is about shoes.

Researchers found that women wearing heels are considered more attractive than women wearing flats by both men and women. The study says heels change how the body moves- including the pelvis, hips, legs, knees, feet and shoulders- in a way that exaggerates femininity.

But one researcher says there may be an even more primeval root to all of this shoe talk:

If wearing high heels emphasizes some sex-specific aspects of the female form they may make women more attractive, and one motivation....for wearing heels is that it is part of mate selection.

I wonder if Charles Darwin ever envisioned evolution being used in a discussion about high heels?
