Below is a video showing snippets from several of the videos which teach how to walk more gracefully in high heels, how to take work and weight out of the toes and the metatarsal or ball parts of the foot by using the heel more efficiently. However, the book isn't "sole"-ly for women - or even just for women who wear high heels. There are many stretches for calves and hamstrings and the ITB or IlioTibialBand which men will get great benefit from.
As well, there is information on relieving painful plantar fasciitis:
and guidance for using the hamstrings strength efficiently for such simple but sometimes challenging pedestrian activities as climbing stairs:
and of course, creating an elongated spinal line for improved posture - which comes from well-aligning the heels with the paired points along the back body.
