I've never owned a pair of high heels. I do have a pair of boots with a 1/2 inch heel though. :P

I think that a woman deserves to have the very best shoes. it is one of the few luxuries in life not to suffer from aching feet; and if you can look fashionable, so much the better.

I don't own any, to me it's pointless for tall women to wear them. I think they are mainly for short girls to make up for short comings (no pun intended lol). I'm 5'7' and have tried on heels before and felt so silly, I feel like Godzilla about to stomp on the city. If your short yeah you are gonna need em, tall....not so much so. Besides i'm not a high heel person give me my flip flops 365 and i'm happy. In fact I have exactly 3 types of shoes 1 pair of running shoes (which have been on my feet once in six months) 1 pair of UGG boots which haven't even been wore and I've had them a year and at least 50 + pair of flip flops which I wear on a daily basis. That's it, that is what my shoes consist of.

No high heels here, and I'm short.

I don't own any heels. I only wear comfortable shoes that have good arch support.....like Dansko clogs and Merrell sandals.

None for me, either. I have back and foot problems and was forbade by my doctors to EVER wear "high heels." I do have dressy shoes with little heels, but mostly wear pretty sandals ( I live in Florida). Occasionally I might wear a slightly higher "wedge" heel sandal.

I wore heels on occasion back in the 60's an 70's. Haven't owned a pair since. I do think they look great on some women.

Agree.

I'm the woodsy out doors type. I haven't worn heels in years. I don't think I could any more after having lived in gym shoes for work all these years.

I absolutely refuse to wear them. And I tend to wear the flattest shoes I can find. I have declined to be in quite a few weddings, because I refuse to wear the heels that go with the outfits the brides have chosen.

Beyond being unhealthy, and beyond supporting sexual objectification of women, they just look LOW CLASS, to me. Plenty of extremely wealthy people are low class, and so pictures of "socialites" in the things do not impress me.

I may be little and brown and from the South, but I am an admirer of New England Protestant culture. I do not see high heels as being compatible with that mindset.
