Sexy stiletto heels get our women on a high

Avery has fallen head over heels for shoes. And not
just any shoes. Stilettos are what make her go
weak at the knees
Liz Avery's collection of 'about
30' pairs of shoes puts her in the top bracket of
an ownership survey.
The 21-year-old owns "about 30" pairs of heels,
but she is by no means
a rarity: a survey of more than 450 Australian women found 32 per cent
owned between 26 and 50 pairs of heels, while 31 per cent owned between 11
and 25 pairs.
Conducted by American shoe guru Meghan Cleary for two online dating
services, the survey found that 80 per cent of women would wear stilettos
or strappy heels on a first date.
Of those surveyed, 66 per cent said buying shoes was better than eating
chocolate, while almost half of the women surveyed said high heels were
the best way to boost sex appeal. Black was the colour of choice for 60
per cent of women, while 16 per cent favoured red and 7 per cent pink.
"Australian women overwhelmingly went for the stiletto as their
favourite pair of shoes and shoes for a first date," Ms Cleary said.
"They also named their first pair of high heels as the most important
shoe they will wear in their life."
Ms Avery wears "all different types and colours of heels".
Her favourite is a pair of leopard-print, peep-toe heels from
Australian designer Leona Edmiston, but the brand favoured by more than
any other of those surveyed was Manolo Blahnik.
Favoured by shoe-crazed Carrie Bradshaw of Sex And The City fame,
Manolo Blahniks are famous for their sleek lines, not comfort levels.
