Are they worth it? They raise you up, define you're leg muscles and just make you look glamorous.. but are they really worth all the pain and suffering ?

I would have to say that some are worth the pain. But then again I have many pairs that do not hurt at all, they actually make my feet feel great. So I guess what I am saying, is that it depends on the shoe. There are some that I will wear and there are some that I will not wear.

I find the ones with the really thin heels are the most painful ones. I guess because you have such little support. They are usually the sexiest though.

Oh I understand what your saying completely. I love my little heal, longer leg looking shoes. Some of them hurt like heck, but I notice the less I spend on the shoe, the more comfy they are!

Haha so your saying it's a psychological thing! I get I you logic though, if it hurts your wallet less it's bound to hurt your feet less. Although those Prada heels still look tempting as heck!

That really depends I know friends who dont feel pain or any suffereing related to wearing hihg heels etc, for them the issue is to wear flats. If u ask me for my wearing high heels is a difficult. So I wear them to parties or when in wedding etc and all know it will not last for ever. But there are friends who wear them all the time. So i would say it depends from person to person.

It definitely depends on who the person is, I know some girls who even go to work on them, and they spend their whole shift on their feet. Eight hours on four inch heels, personally I couldn't do it. There are the few girls out there who can seem to do it without any pain, I wonder what there secret is.

Thats true and I forget to mention it, but you may say its more or less a habit of wearing heels. Like my sister she is a doctor and she wears heels, now moving with them is really crazy but still people do. A fried of mine brought some high heel shoes for me from UK not one but 3 and I was not able to wear them once. My sister did in a wedding, but just imagine my house is at first floor, coming down from 22 stairs and then moving around it really scare me sometimes. I am still amazed how they manage it seriouly

Oh my, she is really brave. I remember running down my stairs in just little kitten heels and I tripped and fell down the last few steps, it majorly hurt, and I never did that again!

I love wearing high heels but not all the time and it depends on the occasion and place but whenever I'm wearing a high heels I didn't feel the pain of wearing it because I'm used to it and though I'm used to it, I don't wear it all the time because it might cause some unwanted effects on my leg muscles. Yes, you look glamorous and gorgeous because of high heels and it adds you confidence that's why I love wearing it.

My thoughts exactly Bianca. I usually only wear high heels when I'm going out or it's a special occasion. It's definitely not worth the pain and suffering all the time. I love the fact you can add stilettos to just any old outfit like jeans and it adds way more glamor to your outfit!

I know where you're coming from bubblicious! I'm only 5'2 and it's definitely nice to have that extra few inches. Especially if your date is 6 feet and up! Like they say beauty is pain.

As a guy, where I don't feel your pain and suffering, I think it's worth it. Really sexy for a girl to wear heels. I work with a girl who always wore sneakers to work. She would just be in jeans and a T-shirt, and sneakers. Once afterwork I saw her at a local grocery store. She still had the same jeans and shirt, but she was wearing heels. It really opened my eyes on how different she looked. Made me look twice.

Haha see! Always good to hear a guys opinion on these topics, and prove that it really is worth the pain and suffering. I don't blame the girl for not wearing heels to work, standing on those for 8 hours would drive me mad! Unless of course you guys worked at somewhere with a dress code and you had to be dressy, otherwise no I do not blame her at all.

I guess it depends on why you are wearing the stilettos As for pain and suffering, you can get that out of any pair of women's shoes, even flats. A shoe that fits the foot well will remove the pain and suffering part. Practicing walking in a pair of heels will help as well

Haha I've realized that with plenty of different shoes, from blisters and bruises, it sucks! I try walking around in different sized heels and I'm slowly starting to get better at it, which is good because for someone my height (5'2) definitely needs some heels! Thanks for the advice and hopefully I'll get the hang of it soon!

I love high heels in general, and I'll wear stillettos if they're the ones that would suit my outfit for the occasion. A couple of good alternatives would be wedges and platform heels. Of course, there's still a bit of pain involved. But we girls are used to pain.

No worries, I do this a ton too. Anyways I love wedges too, and my feet and ankles seem to like them a lot more too!

I would choose a tapered heel or a pair of nice wedge over stilettos.I can't walk properly while wearing them.it is better to have a shoes with chunky heels than wobble over shoes with skinny heels.wedges and tapered heels are more comfortable than stilettos.it is not worth the pain.

Oh I understand what your saying. It's hurts your legs/feet like heck to try and balance on those pretty much toothpicks. I hate it. Although they do say beauty is pain, although I think it should be in moderation.

I love wearing high heels, but I'm more into wedges and platform shoes. A tad bit more comfortable that stilletos. But if stilletos are absolutely necessary (like formal occassions), by all means I'll get into them. As the emo people say, "I'm used to pain."
