I'm a woman and I can only walk in heels 4 inches or less. Honestly it kind of sucks because you feel like your going to break your damn ankle (and some women have). I never wear heels unless there's a special occasion.

I suppose the same feeling I get when I wear my cowboy boots. Makes you feel 10 feet tall. With heels there is also the power of feeling sexy.

Put 'em on and see. My brother did the Walk A Mile In Her Shoes awareness event a few years ago. All 6'4" of him. He had a heck of a time finding pumps big enough, though.

As for me, no heels, thanks. At four and a half months pregnant, It's a laugh-out-loud proposition, and will only become moreso as the summer progresses. Viva la sandals. Non-pregnant, I tend to prefer wedges over heels, in general. More stability.

I was going to post almost exactly this.

Heels lead to foot, knee, hip and back problems. I avoid wearing them when possible.

I truly think heels some how are designed for womens feet not mens. I don't think my foot can even bend to the angle some womens feet do. That event must have been funny to watch..

They're not for hiking, that's for sure. I worked at a gym in the late 70's and we were required to wear heels (and black leotards). By God's grace I found some that were SOO comfortable. They're out there. It depends on your "construction" as to what's comfortable for whom. Like how the one poster said she walks very feminine. I don't. Closer to equine. Still, when you find heels that are comfortable you don't have to think about every step and they're priceless!

Having said that, I've spent a good part of my working life in combat boots so....

The back and feel problems the majority of us 'golden year' gals deal with now are attributed to all the years we wore high heels.

We discounted all the warnings when we were younger, but that's the norm isn't it?

So what go's on in the mind of a women wearing high heels ?

I am just curious..

Thanks

Uh, painful especially if they're 4 inches or higher, the kind where your toes squeeze out the ends. Awful! But dude, if you want to try 'em, go ahead. No one will know.
