I'll never understand why hardcore fighters are regularly depicted wearing high heels.
For a moment, humor me. Find a pair of 6 inch stilhettos.
Now. Lift your foot and kick as hard as you can and see what happens.
Sure you have no balance so you probably fell on your ass, broke the heel and your ankle. These fighters are trained says you!
Look up the laws of kinetic friction, and momentum and pressure and GODDAMN COMMON SENSE.
I don't see why it's expected of these characters to even walk around for more than half an hour in those torture stilts, let alone do acrobatics that 97% of the population can't even do ALL WHILE WEARING THEM.
It doesn't matter how wide you make the heel, it doesn't make it easier to do gravity defying stunts in or make it much more comfortable. Maybe they're okay to stand in for 45 minutes rather than 30.
Everytime I see a movie with some femme fatale in Catwoman like stilhettos, I facepalm. If you watch, the stuntperson always has flat boots on because they're normal and can't do that shit without. Flat. Heels.
I'm not actually specifying a gender on this one because I've recently seen several male action types wearing stilhettos as well which just confuses me. Men, you're free of this shit, why the hell start bringing it on yourselves?!
JAPAN. WHAT ARE YOU DOING. JAPAN. STAAAAHP!!!
