Women do you like wearing high heels? Men do you like to see women in heels? I personally hate wearing heels I only wear them maybe once or twice a year if I have to dress up for a special occasion and they are no more than a few inches. I prefer the chunky heel. I can't see how people can wear them all the time. The make my feet hurt just looking at them.

I don't wear high heels anymore. I spent so many years in my good old sneakers that my feet won't adapt to the high heels. I wear a "ballerina" type show for dress when needed. I have to admit though that the high heels do look nice. I caught a glimpse of my neighbor leaving for work this morning. She had on a cute dress and some strappy high heeled sandals. Very cute look.

Being already 5'10" tall, I seldom wear heels cause I'm tall enough already! In fact,the last pair I bought was for my first wedding 30 years ago! Then I handed them over to my mom who wore heels all the time. Even if I were shorter, I don't think I'd wear them. I go for comfort over style, and high heels are bad for your feet, too. My sister's friend wore high heels so much that her Achille's tendon shortened and she could not walk barefoot or in flats without pain! Men like to see women wearing them because it makes your butt stick out!

Yeah I like comfort too. When I was a child my achilles tendon was too long. It made my knees hurt really bad sometimes. I had to wear this disc in my shoe. The doctor said I'd grow out of it and I did. I don't want any kind of foot problems where I can't walk without pain.

That's not always true, that men like them because it makes a womans butt stick out. A real male high heel lover probably rarely even notices their backsides, we are too busy admiring the shoes :)

I am so with you on this. I only wear heels when absolutely necessary. I also have to wear the thick heels because I have weak ankles that make it hard to balance on the smaller ones. I hate even the low chunky heels though after a while. They all hurt my feet, and when I do have to wear them, I cannot wait until I get the chance to take them off.

That's good. Yes they can be bad for your feet if you wear them all the time. They're not comfortable for me but they might be to some people. They say the more expensive the heel the more comfortable because supposedly it's made better. I'll never find out because I'd rather not spend a couple hundred dollars on a pair of shoes.

For the actresses yes I want to see them use high heels because its what the fashion is all about. For my wife no, I don't like to see my wife use high heels ever. I jus don't like it period. Maybe to other guy I sound weird but thats what I am. I hate to see my wife using high heel sandals or shoes.

I do like to wear high heels sometimes, especially to work as it makes me feel less short next to the men. I'm 5'5" which isn't too short, but the heels put me at a nice hight. Plus I have to admit I like the sound they make...I guess I've always associated the sound of heels on the floor with authority, ever since I was a kid and teachers wore them. But I think 2 inches is about my limit. I can't wear the ones that look like they were made for Barbie doll's feet. I figure if God wanted me to wear shoes like Barbie's, he would have given me feet like that, and her other assets as well. hehehe For casual shoes, I prefer sneakers, sandals, or boots. My boots usually end up with a little bit of a heel if they are dressy boots, as opposed to snow boots. I will sometimes wear sandals with heels to dress up a pair of pants or jeans, otherwise they are usually flat.

I like heels but, I don't wear them that often because they make my feet hurt too. The problem is that I am miserably flat footed. So, when I wear heels, there is no support in an arch to keep my feet from sliding forward in a heeled shoe and cramping my toes. And, I take the brunt of the trouble in the pads (or balls) of my feet just past my toes. So, I get really sore. I do have a pair of boots that I can wear forever. They are about a 1 and a half or 2 inch heel. I think they are under two but, I can't remember. I think that 2 inches is too much heel for me. So, when I try to find new shoes with a heel, I look for a shoe that is no bigger than 1 or 1 and a half inch high.

I love 'em! I don't wear them daily, but I make sure that I buy very comfortable ones so that when I do wear them I'm not in agony. Of course, it's very hard to find heels that are comfy, so I don't have many pairs. I do love how they make my legs look and I can always use the exta height!
