My mother bought me my first pair of high heels when I was 14. I wore high heels for most of my adult life (when I wasn't wearing roller skates). Dr. Oz notwithstanding, I have osteoarthritis in both of my thumbs. I fail to see the correlation.

I debated the effectiveness of medical information against fashion hype to see if real information would help some women resist peer pressure to wear the devil shoe known as high heels.

It's a long shot I know but maybe, just maybe............

I love my high heels. I also love platforms and wedges. Me personally, I never drive wearing them I have Tod's driving shoe I keep in my car. I carry a pair of Repetto ballet flats, I change into when I am strolling the streets.

I wear heels becasue they are beautiful, make my legs look awesome, compliment my clothing, make me feel super sexy, and I love shoes.
Sometimes I will put on a fancy pair at home and just wear them around.

The perfect nude patent leather pump rocks my world. *sigh*

In all seriousness I think women are God's greates creationand I love a lady who takes great pride in looking her best. But back to.the subject I forgot to ask, do you ladies prefer closed high heel shoes or open ones?
Closed. But I always have a pedicure, so the peep toe heels can be very pretty. IF a woman takes care of her feet.

Just hearing the "clickity clack" sound of heels on a floor is exciting. Heels bring out the submissive side of me. I want to respect and obey a lady in heels...she is the boss.
The best women are the ones who can command that submission even in no shoes. And not all women in heels can pull it off, either. But I like where your head is at~

I just saw a woman today with open heels and beautiful painted toe nails. I was in awe of her beauty. Just seeing something like that made my day.

Yes shoes are just a part of it. When a woman looks pretty,sexy, glam etc. she gains a certain kind of power. They try to teach girls the opposite is true but you can't change human nature.
