Abstract

Even though women's shoes, especially high heels are a very important element of fashion, and the shoe industry has a very similar market system as the fashion industry, there is no study about shoes in terms of style changes and relations between external factors and heel hight cycle. Therefore, the objectives of this study were to investigate whether heel height changes in the U.S. market occur in a cyclical pattern, whether heel heights show greater within-year variability over time, and whether relationships are observed between the economy and average heel height
