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 . Hence , the pressure ( force / area) on the ground is much less in case of a flat shoe as compared to a pencil heeled shoe and walking is easier.
