Spiked heels or thick ones?

Which are easier to walk in? Which look better? Which do you prefer? I say thick heels all the way -- I hate the new fashion trend of spiked heels and jeans.

Thick ones. The spikes are hard to walk on and even harder on the back.

Thanks for the response! I agree with the back comment, because you're putting all your weight on the ball of your foot, which is not a natural human position.

I would say thick heels, they are easier to walk in, and I don't wear heels much so when I do, I buy thicker heels, I feel like I'm going to twist my ankle in spiked heels.....

I love spiked. They look better and are more elegant. And are not necessary less comfortable. A thick one can be as uncomfortable as a spiked one. All it matters is the shoe tree. If it is built exactly on your foot, or you are lucky to find one that seems to be made after your foot then, even an spiked of 10 cm (4 in) can be as comfortable as a no hill shoe.

I go for the thick heels. I can't see how the spiked heels can be good for your feet.

I like the kind of inbetween heels. Not spikey so much, but still tapered.

I find thick heels easier to walk in, though I don't really wear either one much.
