I’m pretty good in heels after many years, but my recollection is that it came quite easily. It’s not a gender thing at all; it’s an anatomy thing. Some women never find an affinity for high heels and some wear them everywhere. I think the same thing is true for CDs. I love 4 to 5 inch pumps, peep toes, sandals, and boots. With my women’s size 11, they have the perfect rake and balance. Even higher are OK with a platformed sole.
