You may want to check with Manolo, but some say the cause of craziness may be not in our heads but in our feet. From Bio-Medicine.org:

Researchers from Sweden had presented a report saying that wearing high heels may be associated with //higher incidence of mental disorders like schizophrenia etc.

Jarl Flensmark says high heels cause their wearers to tense their calves in a way that normal walking never does. That could prevent neuro-receptors in the calf muscles from triggering release of dopamine, a compound necessary for mental well-being.
