My earlier question “can you really ride in heels?” answered. In Burkina Faso, women ride in heels on the regular. On another note… it looks like she’s texting. Amazing.

Throughout Ouagadougou, the capital city of Burkina Faso, women in beautiful dresses and shiny high heeled shoes ride motorcycles for transportation. Many times they ride double with a friend or family member and additional cargo or children.

Dresses and high heels may not be the ideal clothing for motorcycling, but it works. Three-inch heels locked over the pegs on a motorbike don’t tend to slip, and somehow the women gracefully straddle the bikes without hiking up their skirts. (Trees on the Riverbank)
