when i was younger, i am an avid fan of heels and stilettos whenever i get out of the house. well for one it adds up to my height of 5 flat. it boost my morale and confidence until lately that i usually feel tired of wearing my heels for most of the day. lately, i was into flats and i find it very comfortable and chic, as long as the style is good. even when i go to work nowadays i would grab some pretty flats. how about you??? :)

because i have very bad knees (no cartlidge left in them) i cannot wear heels. i do have a few pairs that i would wear if we had say a wedding to go to or something, but i mostly wear flats and now there are some really nice ones that are available.

OK, I guess someone has to give a guy's input here. As a guy, I love watching women walk in heels and stilettos. The higher the heels the better. I guess its just one of those primal things where a woman walking on her toes is exceedingly sexy. Having said that, I've never understood why women would wear such shoes that put your foot in the most unnatural walking position. It can't be very good for your back when you walk in them and they must be totally impractical for anything beyond a stroll to elevator and into the car type of thing.

I wear heels almost always when I go out. I have a pair of pretty flats at work for when I'm working and I keep a pair of sneakers in my car for emergencies but the rest of the time I'm wearing heels. Cheers, Tianna

Dynamite 09 - sandals I will be getting this afternoon!
It depends on where I'm going and how long I'll be in them, lol! When I go to my work I usually have shoes or boots with a low platform with a max of 5 cm of flats. I like it when they have a bit of a curve so my heel is just a couple of cm higher. This way my calfs won't get hurt as much, which they otherwise do when I'm very active. It's also proven that wearing a low heel can be very good for your way of walking, back and calfs and a fysiotherapist recommended it to me when I had trouble with soar calfs. When I'm going out I like wearing heels or higher platforms. You have time to sit, don't have to run around with toddlers (as I do in child daycare) and don't have a certain dress code other than: party! I will get very nice platform sandals this afternoon, waited 8 weeks for them to arrive and they are finally here! I got the black ones, didn't know pink or white excist otherwise I would definatly considered them and perhaps if they wear easily I will consider getting another colour aswell! Added a pic of them :)

i remember that flats were a big "in" thing in the 80s. When the 90s came, if you wore flats with jeans, you were looked upon.However, a few years ago, flats resurrected. I used to love wearing heels and stilettos.I could even run in them. When I got pregnant, I got sooo lazy to wear heels that I resorted to anything flat. I've wore more flat shoes now than ever. And since flats are back, there are so many designs to choose from.

Yes, i used to wear shoes and sandals with heels. I don't like the flat ones because feel my real height, but now, i wear flat because it's more comfortable. Still, it takes me some time to get use to for I always wear something with heels or elevated.

indeed, when you are used on wearing heels you's really have a hard time getting used on wearing flats. i used to feel tired when i was wearing my flats b4 as compared to when im on heels. thanks for the post.

for me, when I go to church, I usually wear heels it looks formal and dainty. But when I am going anywhere like to a friend's house or other casual gatherings, I preferred to use flat sandals or shoes because I am comfortable with it.

By far flip flops are my favorite shoe out there . they are just so comfy . When I was in high school everything I wore had a chunk type of heel . I had boots , shoes , and even tennie shoes . And I used to walk 2 miles each day . I guess I thought I was a shrimp

hi. i love wearing heels. the only problem is that i have big feet. big feet are rare here in my country, where the usual average size of women's shoe size is 6-7. mine is a whopping 10-11. huhuhu... i could never feel as dainty as they are. i have a big problem in searching for shoes that fits. if the shoe fits, i would buy it most often than not. i would forgo comfort. it's very difficult when i am required a certain of shoes, i have to spend so much time, looking for something that is atleast serviceable. sometimes, i would not be even find one. there goes my wanting to wear beautiful shoes.

hi there, thanks for the post. :) if you are having a difficulty looking for nice shoes with your size, i think there are stores wherein you can have your shoes custom made for you. you can even create you our design... happy shoe finding. :)

I used to be a fan of heels years ago because I stand at 5 feet short but I eventually got tired of it. Now I'm just wearing flats and couldn't even bear to wear a 2-inch heel shoes anymore.

hello there, we have the same height and i'm used wearing high heels since i was young i can run, jump while wearing those hills like i feel i'm wearing flats. but then i realized its effects on my legs, my calf's became firmer and bigger. i am in college right now, i'm starting to love wearing flats or those shoes/ sandals with at least an inch tall whenever i go out malling or go out alone/with my friends. i found it comfortable and easy.
