“How to Walk In High Heels,” a British government-funded college course is causing quite the stir across the pond. According to the Mirror, five students at the South Thames College in South London signed up for the course costing 750 pounds ($1085). The instructor Chyna Whyne says she set up the lessons because of her own back problems from wearing high heels as a back-up singer.
Students enrolled in the course seemed to be loving it. One student reported it boosted her confidence in stilettos. She said, “I no longer feel pain on a night out. I can finally rock my heels.”
The Taxpayers’ Alliance Chief isn’t happy. Executive Matthew Elliot says the course is a “silly gimmick.” The instructor defended the course stating heel-related injuries are “unbelievably high.”
Sure would have been a fun one-credit course on this side of the pond. You know shoe designers everywhere are loving this!
Do you think this course is a waste of British government funds? Would U.S. colleges invest in such a course? Sound-off!
