Collective Culture features this article on how the high heel is being re-imagined by men as a new symbol of empowerment, breaking down cultural norms in the process.
From the article:
"17th-century noblemen used to wear heels as a sign of power and virility. Little by little, these accessories are regaining that power!"
"We are talking about dresses and skirts embroidered with gold, details everywhere, exuberant wigs; nothing could be left empty. At this time, women also began to wear heels because the trend was to imitate men's fashion."
"Nowadays this is changing. Today clothes are getting a new branding, and that is that they have no gender. Under this ideal, fashion stigmas carried over from the last century are being broken one day at a time."
"In this genderless fashion initiative, heels have become more and more gender-neutral elements of empowerment."
