Men in heels: 9 stars who lit up the Eurovision stage in shoes. Photo

Shoes with heels were not always an attribute of women's fashion. On the contrary, they were worn only by men. In the XVI century - warriors of Asian and Persian cavalry. And in the late seventeenth century - the members of the French royal family and members of high society. Around the same time, these shoes began to appear in women. However, they had the shoes not as a symbol of status, but to visually increase growth, improve posture and add grace and sophistication to their movements.

As the years went by. Heeled shoes began to lose popularity among men. Mankind was already accustomed to the fact that only women could wear them. Now it's time for a change: fashion brands (like Rick Owens and Christian Louboutin) and celebrity men decided to dispel the stereotypes. And which of the participants of the international song contest Eurovision reminds everyone that high-heeled shoes are unisex shoes? Read the material of OBOZREVATEL.
