Russian lawmaker proposes high heel ban Published: June 19, 2014

Oleg Mikheyev, a member of Russia’s parliament, is suggesting a ban that is angering a lot of people in his country.

Mr. Mikheyev, in a proposal sent to the Chairman of the Board of the Eurasian Economic Union, Vikto Khristenko, asked for a ban on high heels, or at the very least, strict regulation on how high heels can be, Yahoo News reports.

As reported by the Agence France-Presse (via The Times of India), Mr. Mikheyev wrote, "Footwear should have heels that are two to four centimeters high, five centimeters high at the most.” Converted to our system of measurement, that would mean heels couldn’t be higher than approximately 2 inches.
