Британские ученые вычислили, что максимально допустимая высота каблука около 12 см.

In 2004, Paul Stevenson, a physics lecturer at the University of Surrey, in England, was asked to come up with an equation for the maximum height of heels. After adding a number of social factors like units of alcohol consumed (a method he readily admits was not exactly scientific), he found that around 5 inches was generally the maximum height for a sober, experienced shoe-bearer.
