High heels are no longer the fashion accessory of choice for young girls in Ireland.
According to the country’s top educational institution, the Institute of Education, the popularity of high heels has declined in recent years.
The Institute of Gender Studies has been analysing data from the last five years and found that the number of girls aged between 10 and 17 using high heels fell from 16 per cent to 10 per cent over the same period.
The institute also found that while girls in the same age group were wearing high heels in 2013-14, the number dropped to 9 per cent by 2015-16.
The number of high-heeled models has increased from one per cent in the years between 2010-11 and 2011-12 to about one per per cent during 2016-17.
But the institute’s head of research, Catherine McGlone, says that the trend has reversed in recent decades.
In 2013-15, there were more than 3,000 high-HEEL models on the streets of Dublin.
That number had fallen to just 800 by 2015.
“We’re seeing a dramatic increase in the number who are now wearing high- heel shoes,” she said.
They’re just becoming more fashionable in other parts of the country.” “
High-HEELS are not as trendy as the high heels that were worn in the 1980s, 90s, early 2000s, they’re no longer in fashion.
They’re just becoming more fashionable in other parts of the country.”
Ms McGlie said that high-Heel trends are not confined to Dublin, but have also been seen in other cities across the country.
“There are a lot of high heel cities in Ireland,” she explained.
“I think the trend in Dublin has been quite noticeable.” “
The Institute’s head has also noticed a rise in the use of high fives and thumbs up in the capital. “

“One of the big trends is the use and popularity of the high-HELP hand gesture in the city,” she added.
“As the years have gone on, it has become more and more common in Ireland.”
Ms McNamara said that while it was important for people to dress up in their high-fashion attire, it was also important for them to be aware of their gender.
“If you don’t feel comfortable with wearing high heel shoes or high heels, you should also consider how you dress up to feel comfortable in your community and be a part of that community,” she concluded.
