Head over heels

Today's idiom looks at love and shoes. What greater love does a woman have?

You know where your head is but what about heels. They are the flat part of your foot at the back. The place where high heels are on shoes.

But in fact, head over heels usually goes with the phrase, head over heels in love. Although you could fall head over heels, especially if you were wearing high heels.

If you've ever wondered about the science of wearing high heels, (which you probably haven't) you're about to find out.

Here's an interesting video with a Spanish/American lady explaining how Newton's theories apply to shoes!

She overlooks one important scientific fact; whatever the shoe, the more you drink, the harder it is to stand up! (A zero conditional - if your interested)
