why is it easier to walk on soft sand with a flat shoe than with a pencil heeled shoe?

Expert Answer:

A flat shoe increases the area of contact with the ground as compared to a pencil heeled shoe. Hence the pressure ( = force / area ) on the ground is much less due to a flat shoe and walking is easier.
