I'm tall so whenever I wear heels I feel like I am towering over everybody.

I work in a psychiatric hospital. Heels are a completely ridiculous option there. Out on the town is a different story!

I'm less than 5', so yes I love my heels that range from 1-4.4".

I'm tall enough as is, being 5'8". At school, I might wear shoes with the tiniest heel, but usually I choose flats or boots instead. At formal events with family or chorus concerts, I'll wear slightly higher heels, but still nothing more than an inch or two.

Really? What do you wear to wedding/parties? Unless you're very tall and always find a nice dressy pair of flats.

I have short achilles so I naturally walk on my toes. I did a lot of ballet so naturally, high heels are my comfortable. Flats hurt my feet. I'm weird...

I'm 5'8" and when I wear 4inch heels I'm so much taller than everyone, it just embarrassed me. Especially when when my ex was 5'9" lol

I wear heals occasionally. Most of the time, it's chucks, Nikes or my boots.

I'm 5'11", if I wear heels to the office they are generally pretty short, otherwise the men act funny.

Admittedly I am more of a boot and flip flop gal, but I have some cute heels for date night in my closet. I just don't wear them "regularly". ;)

Oh do I know what you mean! I started wearing flip flops constantly and found my arches HURT, but then my mom introduced me to "Fit Flops" which have a nice ergonomic arch support and they've been golden since. ;)

You mean you told him if he didn't buy you shoes you'd dump him? Or am I reading that wrong...

Yes! I feel most comfortable and attractive in heels. I wear them every day, but not at the price of comfort - I find ones that are both comfy AND stylish. I have a pair of 4-inch boots that I could (and have) walk miles in!

I don't wear heels often. Maybe 1-2 times a year and even then they're about 1-1.5 inches. Give me a pair of Converse any day.

I've rarely found a really comfy pair of heels... plus, I'm a petite 5'3" and am proud to be short (and cute! Lol)

Ultimately, it's not about your heels, it's about your feet. You gotta do what you gotta do.
If you can't rock the heels, then just be you. We should all just be glad we can walk at all.
You go, girl!

Being 5'9" when your boyfriend is 5'7" doesn't really allow for me to wear heels hahah

Kitten heels are lower and make you look pretty without too much heel that is admittedly bad for your body (btw have you heard about the dangers of wearing flip flops all the time? That's bad, too. No arch support.)

When I was younger I was a schoolteacher and used to dress more dowdy. Now I dress sharper-feminine and modest but with a sexy edge, including daily heels. People treat me differently now. My brother said, "You don't look 50, but I remember when you did!"

I keep trying but I can't seem to talk myself into liking wedges. They just seem clunky to me, maybe because
I just like the openness/airyness of a regular heel. I am willing to be converted. Can anyone help me?

I am 51 and I prefer at least a two inch heel every day. It's not the heels that bother me at all, it's the toes. If the toes of a shoe fit well, I'm buying them; but many times I can't find a well-proportioned flat I enjoy wearing.

I only wear heels for special occasions. It's not really feasible to wear heels around campus in the winter, or at work coaching gymnastics. When I wear heels, they're usually 4".

he's maybe an inch or so taller than me, but I didn't want to risk making myself any taller. the pictures would have looked weird, and I also get kind of self conscious when guys are shorter than me. :p

I love heels sooo much. I feel so good in them. And I work in an office, so I wear heels 5 days a week, plus church on Sundays. I'm obsessed. ????

I just wear flats or very low heels. When I wear heels, I risk my ankle giving out.

I can't wear heels regularly I have terrible foot problems but when I do wear heels I wear 3" at the lowest anything shorter just makes your legs look stubby and weird.

My everyday boots are 3, but that's about as high as I can go right now. I'm already 5'10 anyways.

I don't wear heels all the time, but when I do I never wear heels shorter than 3 inches. Even though I'm 5'8", I feel like short heels make people's legs look stubby
