The men of yesteryear would certainly look down at today’s man for not being masculine enough, but not for the reasons most people think.
Sure, some men of today rant and state that men are no longer men and that masculinity is being destroyed, but little do they know that they would actually be viewed as feminine in the eyes of men from Olden Times!
Back in the days of Persia, men began wearing high heels while riding horses in order to get a better stance when shooting arrows. When the Persian styles began sweeping Europe, men of status and privilege everywhere wanted to get their feet in some high heels. The impractical shoes went perfectly with their gaudy jewelry and brightly-colored clothing.
Fast forward a few years, and women start adopting masculine trends into their own styles, and thus began the downfall of the man in high heels. It’s quite an interesting story, and I encourage you to check out this article here.
