    I found that quite entertaining and I thought the guys were very brave! Not easy is it?! Makes me realise that wearing high heels and getting home with achy feet is a bit daft day in day out. Broke my ankle last year and can't wear such high heels anymore and actually think what a relief it is!

    The point is that it should be an option - not all women want wear heels inside or outside of work. There are days when I know that I will be running from one meeting to another so it is not practical to be wearing heels. I understand that there may be a need to suggest appropriate business shoes are worn so that people do not turn up in trainers or flip flops, but there are plenty of options for women that aren't heels.

    The dress codes for women that I have seen only encompass things which women actually wear at some point or other. Women do wear high heels, revealing outfits and so on. Not ALL women of course. Some have more sense.
    If high heels are unsafe/painful/damaging to feet - then surely they are those things all the time, not just when you are at work.
    If the field of women's clothing did not encompass such things then there would be no call for women to wear this stuff at work - as it wouldn't exist.
    Men's clothing is generally more conservative - which may explain why male dress codes are equally less outrageous. A simple 'shirt, tie and trousers' is no big deal. Impractical maybe (fails to keep you warm/dry when out and about), but hardly a big deal.
    'Fashion Women', you only have yourselves to blame. (I like to court controversy from time to time)
