I have realised this, that both girls and guys stare and smile at me when I wear heels but no one looks at me when I wear trainers. Why is this? I am genuinely curious. And no I don't dress skimpy when I wear my heels, I dress modestly with both heels and trainers. I thought people smiled at me because they thought I was pretty but seems not

I go london uni btw

Edit:
This girl for example, do you think she looks just as good without the heels, as in are you just as likely to notice her:

Are they stripper shoes - eg a very high heel with a platform?

They're not massive heels. They are high knee boots with like a 2 inch heel

maybe it is because you feel less confident in heels so you are more aware of people looking at you? i doubt anyone is looking at you that differently based on your shoe choice!

its most likely just because you look nice, there are actually some really interesting studies on appearance and academic achievement, take it as a compliment that youre turning heads

Perhaps they change your body shape? My gf gets a lot of attention all the time but especially when she wears heals. It exaggerated her assets, so to say!

Ok - well I think that's a really good outfit. Relaxed but classy; on trend, but not 'fashion victim'.

I think people are possibly looking at you and smiling because you look amazing and thinking 'that lady has some style'!

hmmm so if any woman wears heels, regardless of whether she is actually good looking or not will warrant attention?

But her face is 1 in a million so she will get stared at regardless of what she wears

Regardless of attractiveness...Three things can change a woman: Makeup, Contact Lenses and Heels

Are the heels very high or noisy when you are walking?
Are you of below average height without heels on?

Could be because they like the look of your outfit, heels and the first impressions that the combination give.
If it is guys that are always flirty or over-friendly with you whenever you are wearing heels, it could be that they have a thing for a certain type of girl that wears very high heels (shorter girls, specific hairstyle/hair colour or very high heels).

Your heels make you sound like a horse, so people are bound to look around to see where the horse is.

I guess maybe heals suggest you are more interested in being chatted to? Like if my GF wants attention from guys she wears either a low cut dress or something quite tight. Heals just doubles the effect! I know it shouldn't work like that but it does.
