Dainty though they may look, high heels can inflict some real damage on the wrong floor material. According to the National Science Foundation, high heels or spiked heels worn by a 45-kilogram woman can strike a floor with more force than an elephant’s foot. An actual elephant in heels could wreak unimaginable destruction.
So high heels are much like a tiny hammer.
According to Rapid Reno expert Naomi Findlay, while every girl loves their collection of heels, nobody loves a collection of pit marks throughout their living room or other common area floors.
"Tiles are extremely durable and hardwearing meaning you don’t have to ask your dinner party guests to leave their shoes at the door," Naomi says.
