Sexy Stiletto Shoes - What More Could a Woman Want?

Sexy Stiletto Shoes - What More Could a Woman Want?
Why sexy? Stiletto shoes are known to elongate a womans leg, enhancing calf definition and making the ankles appear slimmer thus getting rid of the dreaded "Cankle" the popular name for the appearance that is where the calf and ankle seem to be one.
Stiletto heels are named after the long slim dagger which originally bore the name. Believe it or not stiletto heels have been around since the 1800s and are depicted in several drawings of that time.
Stiletto shoes have always been associated with the sexier woman and the slightly unbalancing effect that the extremely thin heel confers has long been the attraction for men who like to see women in high heels.
Stiletto heels are typically identified as having a heel diameter of less than one centimetre and can vary in height from two and a half centimetres up to twenty, these higher heels are usually accompanied by a platform sole.
The stiletto heel went out of fashion for a time in the sixties as thicker chunkier designs came in but even then women were still looking for them. One man who helped revive the stiletto heel was Manolo Blahnik who in 1974 introduced his "Needle" Blahnik has been an extremely sought after designer ever since.
Why do women still buy stiletto shoes today? With all the fuss made in the press about the styles foot deforming properties and concerns that they may throw out the spine you would expect the design to slowly wither and die.
Except, women today like their mothers and grandmothers before them still want to look elegant, stylish and yes, sexy.
A recent point in favour of the stiletto came about in a recent study. A shoe with a heel height of between four and eight centimetres was found to actually exercise the pelvic floor in a very desirable way. This helped prevent pelvic laxity and so enhanced the love life of stiletto heel wearing women.

Shoes, Shoes and More Shoes

Shoes, Shoes and More Shoes
For the past few seasons we've seen a battle for dominance among divergent trends, namely post-grunge edgy rocker, urban prep, modernized romantic, bohemian free spirit and ghetto-fhab-ulous. They've all held pace but with Spring comes change and a desire for a softer look. I think people simply get tired of in-your-face fashion after a while, or maybe the designers stop and shake their heads at their own creations. Surprisingly metallics are still going strong but collections are promising a more subdued line of golds, pewter and bronze footwear. So, if you just bought the most embellished pair of pointy-toed slippers or sequined platforms, you might feel a little like the shiek of Dubai at an Eddie Brickell concert or Tina Turner (circa 1984) amongst Kelly Clarkson fans.
One recurring trend is the flat shoe and ballet slipper. I know a lot of women, myself included, who groaned at the thought of wearing flats. At just a little over 5 feet tall, I need all the help I can get. But fortunately the styles have come a long way--to the point even a die-hard stilleto wearer like me has added a couple pair of flats to my notoriously teetering shoe collection. I guess that's a good thing, since celebrity stylist Misa Hylton, who is gearing up to launch her own online boutique in Feb. '07, says they're here to stay for a little while longer.
"Women need a break from wearing those four-inch stiletto's!" she says. "Designers have also stepped their game up with the variety of designs offered in the flat shoe, making them interesting and allowing women to still feel sexy and not like the soccer mom." So not even the "I-never-wear-flats" woman could resist buying a few pair.
"From ballet slippers to dress shoes flats will be all over the pages in fashion magazines," says Frank Patryn, president of Top Industries, a licensee for Playboy Footwear.
If you're all about comfort, you'll love this season's flats, which have a markedly preppy and comfortable feel, like the Espadrille ballet flats from Banana Republic. Some of the more tailored flats are appropriate for the office, like Banana Republic's Bedford' o-ring driving moccasins.

Ballet Shoes And Pointe Shoes And More On Turnout

Ballet Shoes And Pointe Shoes And More On Turnout
Lie on your stomach with your legs straight. Here your hips are in an extended position. Bend one leg to a 90 degree angle. (If your hip comes of the floor, then you need to stretch out your quadriceps and iliopsoas muscles, as in doing a runner's lunge.) You could have someone gently hold your hip down on the floor if you like. Then allow your bent leg to angle down toward the straight knee. Where the leg stops, this is the correct degree of your turnout.
Doing the frog position on your back or stomach is not good for your knees even if you are flexible that way.
Now more importantly, how to hold the turnout that you do have....if you watch dance movies carefully you will see that the most brilliantly artistic dancers in the world are not necessarily born with a lot of turnout - and it doesn't matter! That is the good news.
Your lateral rotator muscles are your prime turnout muscles, specifically: Piriformis;Obturator Internus;Obturator Externus;Quadratus Femoris; Gemellus Superior; Gemellus Inferior. These muscles lie underneath your gluts. When they contract your thigh rotates. If your leg is behind you, the gluts and hamstring muscles also help to hold the rotation.
The balance and tone of any muscle comes from its ability to work, and its ability to relax when not working. So having lateral rotators that clench to rotate, and don't relax in between exercises, do not have the strength they could have. Turning in during class, in between exercises is a good habit to have.
If you have an illustrated dictionary and can see all these muscles, and feel them working and relaxing, you will become a local turnout expert!
For example, when you tendu devant, if your hips remain in placement and your thigh is moving freely on its own, you should be able to rotate to your full natural turnout, even if you cannot always hold it. You may have to practice this with your gluts released, to isolate the rotator muscles. Gluts don't increase your turnout.
If you sit on the floor, legs straight out in front of you, relax your gluts on the floor. Then just engage your rotator muscles and turn your thighs out without your gluts working. This will help you isolate the rotators. If you can raise the legs, one by one, an inch or two off the floor, and hold this turnout, you'll feel the rotators holding against the flexion action. If your hip comes up too, then you are not isolating the leg from the hip completely.
Standing in first position, you want to open the legs by contracting the rotator muscles, but not clenching the gluts at this point. It's good to be able to tighten and hold the gluts when you need to, but not at this moment. Whatever position you end up in, that is your turnout. Same for fifth, with the extra challenge of having one leg slightly behind your pelvis and the other in front. This requires more strength.
While many teachers would not allow this, I would encourage them to have many students working in third position for much longer than they usually feel is "normal". It's not that far to fifth position once the muscles are strengthened. Advanced students and professionals do different things to compensate for not having that perfect fifth position. If they have good teachers, they learn to do this minimally and without injury. But they are doing it very deliberately.
Some people's thighs are in a different position in their hip sockets, that allows more turnout. This is the way they are born. So don't look at anyone else and compare. Also some people have tibial torsion, which means their leg from the knee down is rotated outward. It can lead to other problems, but will give their feet a turned out look, while their knees and thighs may not be able to achieve the same turnout.
Another exercise to strengthen the turnout is as follows: lie down on the floor on your back, feet in first position, flexed as though you were standing. Pressing the back of the legs into the floor can help you feel the rotators. Move the legs, feet still flexed, about half an inch outward toward second position. Keep pressing the back of the legs into the floor, and don't let your back arch. You may only be able to go an inch , - but you'll feel those turnout muscles! Do that ten times every day and you will be much stronger standing up and doing the regular class movements. You won't regret investing time in this exercise. Be sure to relax the rotators afterwards.
