I'm hoping for someone to post some great big number so I can justify wearing my heels everyday!
The only way you could really tell is to wear a heart rate monitor with flats and then with heels and see if there is a difference. Somehow I doubt it.
Personally, I find walking in heels more difficult than flats. It's the balance. I stand up straighter, and engage my core muscles to try and keep my balance. You can tell I've thought about this
I always a greater difficulty = more calories burned. Don't think it would be many though.
I don't think you'd lose more calories.
You might tone your butt and legs while wearing them though.
