A quick thought about combat stilettos, common in fighting video games. A handful in TV and movies.
Realistically stiletto heels are useless. Other than giving a woman a sex appeal. There are certain places where a woman can’t wear those stiletto high heels. In life and death situation, not only would those stiletto high heels slow her down. They’re practically useless in a fight. Not unless the woman uses the heel end of that footwear as a weapon. Of course, it would get ripped out of her hands by someone she’s fighting.
The boys and girls who churn out fighting video games to the public, didn’t take into the account of the basic thing about dirt, plants and mud.
A simple reason why women wear hikers in the bush, practicality. No woman in her right mind would wear stiletto high heels in the woods or bush. Besides have you seen a woman wear stiletto high heels in the woods. Unlikely.
Another thing, a woman going bare foot in the woods or the jungle is not a good idea. In fact, in this day of age, going barefoot downright unhealthy.
