It's official: women in Florida wear the highest heels in the continental U.S. Gilt created an infographic based on shoe orders from January 2013 through June 2014, and saw that on average, Floridians wear a 2.46 inch heel hight, which is just a few centimeters behind Puerto Rico and a large increase from Kansas' 1.97 heel hight. Could Miami be behind this vertical increase? Or, furthermore, could Latinas? Sounds, perhaps, likely. [Racked]
