    I guess,while an offbeat theory,that this actually makes some sense as the leg is plantarflexed and the muscles have to work a little harder.

    Hi John,

    In the 1980's trainers were available with a 2-3 inch heel (may even have been higher). They originated in the USA, and were worn as a training aid to make the lower leg posterior muscle group work harder, and were much in favour, if only briefly, by some professional and semi-professional basketball players in the UK.

    Having tried on a pair I can vouch for the fact that they worked (ie made that muscle group work harder).


    Regards,
    david
