High heels are not Dutch

High heels are not Dutch

Why do Dutch women so seldom wear high heels? To mark Fashion Week in Amsterdam, RNW and shoe designer Jan Jansen took to the streets of Amsterdam to take a look.

    I don't understand why would Dutch girls have to wear hight heels anyway. They're tall, slim, have long, beautiful legs (from cycling), they don't have to prove to themselves or anyone that they're better than they are. They're true and natural. Hope they'll stay like that!!

    i gues this guy whas there on the wrong day, i know and see a lot of girls that are almost only wearing high heels ... and those you see on this video are not even that high. i most of the time see killer heels starting from 10 cm.

    there are also a lot of very tall Dutch women, maybe they don't want to feel like giants every day. Oh yeah, and cobblestones heels = UGH
