Shoes where the heel of the foot is elevated higher than the toe. Terribly uncomfortable to wear for any length of time, but considered sexy because walking in them makes your butt sway back and forth.

High Heel Shoes - women wearing this kind of shoe cannot run, jump, carry much weight... in short they are physically hindered by them. Wearing them indicates that the wearer doesn't need to do any of those things. Somewhat similar to foot binding.. however a lot less horrible. Although, many women require foot surgery to correct problems caused by years of high heel shoe wearing.
