I only wear high heels when I go to work or there's occasions. For casual outings,i don't usually wear high heels. I feel more relax with flat shoes. But, i do think wearing high heels are pretty. Maybe the way one walk with them is nice. Do you prefer to wear high or low heels or flat shoes? why? Do you think wear high heels are prettier? why? And the highest heels u can put on is how many inches?

I love wearing high heels even though I'm already tall.. I feel real sexy when I'm wearing heels although they could be a pain after a long time... i wear them on occasions and when i'm out partyin' with my friends... i wear flats on casual occasions or when i have to go somewhere where i'd have to walk a whole lot... the highest heels i've put on are 5inch heels that were elevated 2 inches at the front. they made me use that for a casting as an extra dancer on a tv show here in the philippines a few years back. imagine having to dance on those on a ledge 5 ft. above the floor.. good thing i didn't fall off.. lolz that would have hurt.. but hey i got the part lolz... :)

haha, i wish to mark you another best response if possible. I can't believe that you danced with 5 inches heels. Oh my! You're really well in it, don't u? to dance & move graciously with 5 inches heels is really not an easy job! If i'm on business trip & yet need to be formal, i chose a very low low heels as i've to walk alot. I don't wish to trouble my legs. Else, it will ruin my mood of the day.

awww... gee thanks app3ls lolz.. it was a painful experience i had to rest my feet two days after that auditions, and i was worrying about falling off that i didn't use my feet to dance i just used the rest of my body and minimized feet movement as much as possible lolz anyways.. After the auditions the bus that we were riding broke down in the middle of the highway and i was still wearing heels although shorter, we had to transfer to another bus and stand since there were no vacant seats for the rest of the way home lolz.. I'm telling you it was really painful once i got home... it was painful yet memorable.. lolz

i think pretty high heels are most attractive on someone who can walk in them.it's sure not easy to do. i can't wear them anymore due to a bad back, kness & feet but don't vever feel really dressed uo no matter what i have on without pretty shoes o. they sure make some pretty ones nowadays.

I am sorry to hear about your bad back, knees & feet, antiquelady. Every girls like to be pretty, but health is more important. =) I agree with you that, you have to be able to walk graciously with high heels, otherwise, you'll looked awkward.

Pretty but bad for you. They hurt my back and my feet and I rarely wear heels other than for special occasions. If I do wear heels they are generally no higher than 2 inches. I'm much more into comfort.

high heels are pretty but bad for you. some comfort shoes are ugly but good for you. don't u think so? A pair of comfortable flat shoes is a must to me although it's ugly. My mom has been complaining about my old flat shoes. I'm just too reluctant to give them away.

I don't want my wife to wear high heels because I think it is not good for her health. I believe health is more important than the appearance. But she insist to wear high heels. I helped her pull out the heel some times when it was stuck into the pavement and I worry if she will hurt her ankle.

I wear hi-heels quite a bit when I go out. Depending on what I have planned, if I'm going shopping or doing something that I'm going to be doing a lot of walking and standing I'll wear flats but if I'm not planning on doing a lot of walking I'll wear heels. I'm short so wearing heels makes me closer to normal height and I don't have to look up at everyone. The highest heels I have are five inch but most are three to four inch. And yes, I do think I look better in heels! Cheers, Tianna

I think sometimes high heels can really make one looked more confident. I can't imagine how is it like to wear 5 inches heels! The highest i put on is 3 n 1/2 and i already feel a little difficulty with that. I salute you!

I used to prefer high heeled shoes years ago but recently, I've been more of a flats kind of girl and when I do wear shoes with heels, it's with a low one. The highest heels I've worn was 3 1/2 inches. It was for my corporate attire in school and sometimes I use a 2 to 3 inch heels when going out. But when I read and felt myself that wearing really high heels can strain my leg muscles, I switched to flats and it's more comfortable. I basically wear my flats with anything and I can stand and walk for hours without killing my feet.

I definitely agree with you that high heels can really stain leg muscles. that's why i only wear to work, as i sit more than walk. :p So, i can't imagine how come girls can shop quite long with high heels. That's a big no no to me. I've a friend who ever climb moutain with high platform shoes. not heels though. that's tough for me & a never happen thing.

I don't wear heels, unless it is for a special ocassion. I'm carrying my daughter most of the time and could not afford to lose my balance which can happen if I wear heels. So I avoid them. I also have another problem. My feet is broad, can't seem to fit into many nice high heels. Seems like high heels are only for people with narrow feet...

Ya, that's true. Wearing high heels carrying a child is dangerous. I ever experienced that. Lucky thing was my cousin landed on feet nicely when i lost my balance.

I like to wear high heels but it depends on the occassion, I think high heels are sexy if you have the right outfit on. I like heels about 3 1/2 inches high.

I'm a man but I want to give my opinion on that. I think the woman will use it in different condition. If they are in party I think woman will looks more graceful to wear high heels. But in relax time, maybe going to mall or market, it is better to wear a low heels, because I think wearing high heels make foot get quick tired. According to me I like to see woman wearing high heels but with medium high not to high.

i think when you go for looks, its always high heels. But when it comes to the question of comfort, its always flats. I think high heels makes you look tall and elegent but the legs suffer in the whole process. Given a chance, I always prefer to wear flats as it lets you and your legs relax. Moreover I think even your knees get affected with the high heels, so I avoid it.

I never wear high heels. Can't stand the things. Why would I wear a shoe (probably designed by men) just because men like us in them? They are bad for your feet and can cause serious damage. I dress for comfort, not fashion.

Ugh, high heels really are killers. I can't stand wearing them for so long, so I wear them only for special occasions, to support some dress which are more appropriate with high heels, other than that, I prefer low. Low heel shoes are more variable now, they have cute and beautiful shoes with low heels, so I wouldn't say high heels are prettier. Happy mylotting and have a nice day!!
