Do we have this? Females in the reality of the film/tv show always wear heels of some sort, and never show any adverse effects like sore feet or back pain, except for when it's necessary to the plot, for things such as rule-of-funny or just inconvenient timing.

    I have trouble understanding the title. Invincible+heels=???

    Literature: Terry Pratchett's Thud!, in which policewomen Angua and Sally are forced to wear excruciatingly high heels whether they want them or not....

    ^^ Women wearing high heels who are invincible to side effects/injury.

    And that said heels aren't destroyed as easily as they should be when in a harsh environment... they still make good weapons though.

    Pretty much any female in the CSI franchise. I honestly don't know how they could chase down suspects while wearing heels and never have any issues with it.

    Highly averted in Real Life. There may be high heels but those break every so often.

    A woman not complaining about her heels in situations where the heels wouldn't be a hindrance isn't a trope.

    High heels are a hindrance in any situation when you wear them for more than several hours.

    • In XXX Xander's relative was a waitress so when he wakes up in a diner and sees a waitress wearing heels, it further confirms to him that the entire setup is fake.

    Perhaps call this something like Heels Are Like Sneakers to indicate that they aren't treated as they are in real life.

    And this would be a Super Trope to Combat Stilettos.

    "A woman not complaining about her heels in situations where the heels wouldn't be a hindrance isn't a trope."

    But the point is they don't complain when they would a hindrance in Real Life.
