Sebuah penelitian menarik diungkapkan para psikolog dari Prancis. Penelitian


mereka menyebutkan bahwa ada hubungan antara hak sepatu yang dikenakan
wanita dengan karakternya.
Seperti yang dikutip dari Genius Beauty, para psikolog meneliti dengan
menggunakan skala berdasarkan sepatu hak tinggi seperti apakah yang
dikenakan wanita untuk membangun rasa percaya diri mereka. Peneliti
mengatakan bahwa alasan wanita mengenakan high heels adalah untuk tampil
berani, percaya diri dan sensual.
Penelitian yang dilaporkan dalam jurnal Psicologia e Salute mengungkapkan,
wanita yang gemar mengenakan sepatu dengan hak sangat tinggi dan tipis
seperti stiletto adalah wanita yang percaya diri, enerjik, dan paham benar daya
tarik mereka. Selain itu, wanita yang mengenakan stiletto biasanya lebih
mudah bersosialisasi dan feminin.
Wanita yang lebih memilih sepatu model wedges dengan hak tinggi merupakan
wanita yang tegas, dan mampu mempertahakan sudut pandangnya. Sedangkan
bagi wanita yang memilih wedges berhak rendah memiliki sifat yang lembut,
fleksibel, santai dan menyenangkan untuk diajak bicara.
Para psikolog mengkalim bahwa wanita yang senang mengenakan sepatu
platform, memiliki sifat yang romantis, praktis dan rela menghabiskan biaya
berapapun demi kesuksesan. Berbeda dengan wanita yang lebih memilih
sepatu dengan hak rendah seperti sepatu pria, mereka lebih rentan terhadap
depresi dan mudah lelah, walau begitu mereka paham benar dengan apa yang
mereka inginkan dalam hidup.
Terakhir, wanita yang senang mengenakan sepatu model sporty cenderung
lebih mudah membuka hatinya untuk orang yang baru di kenalnya. Selain itu,
meraka jauh lebih konservatif dan tidak selalu siap dengan perubahan.
