when the pressure is more on the ground
---- when a man is walking or when a man is standing.

• physics -

When man walks, he does not put his foot flat on the ground, so area of contact is smaller, making pressure greater

Pressure= weight/area

Now when a woman stands in high heels, with a small heel, pressure is tremendous. Women know this, and use the heel to stomp on toes of those annoying immature men.
