Heels are definitely not good for your feet. This isn't a new, groundbreaking revelation. But, like in many other contexts, people will willingly take on pain and suffering for their perception of attractiveness. Always been that way, always will.

Much like tanning, smoking, other things that are damaging that are considered alluring in some circles.

Yes, very true. Just look at the tattooed odd balls to see that.

One wonders what the underlying reasons are for the OPs diatribes against heels and tats.......seems like a lot of wasted time and energy.

Women in high heels are hot.

I used to love high heels, I wore them quite a lot. But now that I live in Oregon I feel like people stare too much when you wear them. I get comments when I wear them - from men and women. Women wear more sensible shoes here for the most part. It's really comfy and healthy and I like it, but there are times I'd like to wear heels but I don't want to attract attention to myself, so I don't. (I'm not the kind of girl who likes attracting attention to myself. I try to blend in.)

I do have some wedges I wear with longer jeans... so I feel like I'm wearing heels but with the jeans you can't really tell. Or maybe I'm fooling myself. I dunno.

Ah, but I do none of those things. I do not tan, I don't drink, I don't smoke; fashion is my one little vice. Not all heels are killers, some are actually quite comfortable...I don't spend all day in them either. I think they are hot, sexy, and look great with beautiful clothes. And I will of course, continue to do as I am doing, for as long as I can

I helped a friends girlfriend move once. She had at least 50 pairs of high heels. Couldn't believe it.

But then...I have dozens of tennis shoes.
