how polite. Look at their faces, are there any signs of tears in their eyes? It's not because you are so hot, it is because they are in pain!

I did conventions, too, but I was allowed to wear low heels. Not sure if I would have survived in high heels for 12+ hours/day.

I did some catalogue modeling and I sometimes didn't even fit into the picture with heels, I had to sit, lay down or bend over. I was taller as the fake background they had me stand in front of. Maybe they were just amateurs, hahhaha

The car shows have the models in sneakers or low heel shoes. But i do remember the Mercedes Benz area the models all had high heels on.

Men trying on heels.

I never had a problem walking in heels when I was younger. Finding ones that fit was harder since I've always had wide feet. I haven't worn a pair in 15+ years now though. I'm much more interested in comfort than style.

That is just to odd. Those shoes are made for women.

I've worn them since I was in my late teens. I have long legs and they just make them look longer. I feel sexy and feminine in them and they don't bother my back or feet.

Pet peeve? Hi heels and shorts...just no.

But with a nice pencil skirt? Big yes.

I think heels make me more graceful, in that I am aware of where I am steping, and what I might be stepping on, though it's not consciously in the fron of my brain.
You mean your foot is pointed down like if it was in a shoe ? What heel hight do you have to wear to be comfortable ?

Maybe the women who feel uncomfortable in heels are talking about a very high heel 5 or 6 inches. Or like what some other person said. You have to wear the shoes a lot to get used to them.

The comfort is in the Angle of the sole.

The more acute the angle, ie, 6 inch heel with no platform, the less comfortable.

This is why platforms are so popular, you get the leg lengthening effect of a 6 inch with 2 inches saved where the platform is.

I would say that weight is balanced evenly on the toe and the heel.

A wedge heel is more comfortable again, but personally I prefer a spike heel. Wedges just don't do it for me.
