Hello fellow mylotters! I would like to ask you this question. For the ladies, do you prefer wearing flat shoes to school or work or do you prefer heels? Now I understand that there are certain workplaces that require you to wear heels. But do you like wearing them? Or do you prefer wearing flats instead? Personally, I would rather wear flats than heels because they are much more comfortable than heels. How about you? Happy Mylotting!

I usually wear both before; depends on the occassion but now am more on flat shoes. That's after I got accident and my knee was damaged the doctor told me not to wear heel shoes anymore. But I really like wearing flat shoesmost of the time as I find it more comfortable.

I hope I never have to give up heels because I cannot wear shoes that are completely flat. Whenever I wear flat shoes it causes my arches to drop. The first time this happened I walked across the floor barefoot and I could feel my entire foot touching. At first it was just weird until I realized it was because my arches were no longer arched. I don't wear stillettos but I love wedges and modest heels. (Not to mention they make your legs look good.) I don't know what I would do if I could no longer wear heels!

i think its really depends on what occasion what is proper shoes you need you wear. but for me i prefer flat shoes as its easy to wear and its good for running around, but i needed to wear high heels i do wear 'em as if its require by my job. but other than that i always wear flat shoes or sandals. happy posting!!

when i was still working in a bank and later on as a financial consultant, i was always wearing a business suit so i have no choice but to wear heels because it doesn't look good to wear flats on a business suit.

I don't own a pair of heels , and never have . I'm for comfort ! I have 2 pairs of running shoes . I might wear them if it gets very cool in the evening . Other then that its Flip Flops ! You don't see anyone wearing anything but flip flops here , of course I live on the beach . Heels ? I think they look really nice but I would fall flat on my face!

For work and walking around the mall or maybe a theme park i would wear flats because i know im going to be walking alot and i dont want my back or legs to be hurting. On special occassions and maybe out to dinner i would wear heels. I like to dress up and look cute and i believe heels somewhat finish your outfit. I have plenty of heels and plenty of flat shoes to decide on weather or not what to wear with what outfit.

we have the same thinking. i think on formal occasions, heels are the best choice. but for comfort, it is more practical to wear flats.

I would much rather wear flats than heels to work and school because my campus is so huge and it would not be great for me to walk up and down in heels all day. That is the only reason I wouldn't wear heels, because I would have to spend all day in them. I do like to wear them to other places though because I am rather short and they make me look taller, and because I really like shoes in general.

When it comes to comfort I agree with you... flats would be practical. And I like heels too because they make me taller. Haha. I'm not that tall either.

I've worn heels so regularly for so many years that flats just aren't comfortable. I occasionally wear a pair of flats, if I'm going shopping or something, but otherwise I'm in heels. I just can't seem to find a pair of flats that doesn't look like something my grandmother would wear, and I feel that life is too short to wear something I know is ugly.

I mainly wear heels to work. I feel more grow up, I guess. But some days I do wear flats. If I go out after work and I have really high heeled shoes on my feet do start to ache. There are so many cute flats in the stores now, I am wearing them almost as much as I wear heels. I have a bronze colored pair (flats)that I love and a black pair of flats with studs on them, those are Michael Kors. I have Kenneth Cole Reaction flats that are silver and have a ruffle on the front. I am sure flats are healthier for feet anyway.

I think personally i will go for flats than heels.because i use flats most of the time during my college.but sometimes we need to wear heels as we are told to wear bleazers.i cant wear flats on bleazers as it goes sad look.I mostly love flats 95 percent of my outside wear will be flats . i got funky slippons and sandals which are colourfull and look very girlish and ofcourse beautifull.It looks really beautifull on anything i wear especially my slippons comes cheaper and so i buy them at a dozens of diffrent colours so that i can match them over everything

I definitely prefer flats ever heels. Heels are too hard to walk with on ice and there is lots of ice here. Hells also hurt my feet and I like to be comfrotable.

It's a hard choice. I don't really like high heels but I do like the sandals that are high all around. They make me look taller. I like to wear a different shoe every day of the week.

Neither if I can help it, I prefer my tennis shoes to anything besides my barefeet or sandals in the summer-time. Flats and heels ahve alway been uncomfortable to me. I suppose if I had to make s choice, I would say flats. They are a little more comfortable than heels, in my opinion.

I prefer wearing flat shoes too or shoes with one inch heels if the work requires. I feel more comfortable wearing flats than with heels because I can walk faster. I have a 3 inch high-heeled stiletto but I have used it for about less than five times. I rarely use high-heeled shoes. If the occasion only requires then that is the only time I do wear them. I have also found out that wearing high heels is especially stressful on the joints of the foot because all of the body's weight rests there; the foot is then forced into a narrow, pointed toe box, compounding the problem. SO I really don't go for high heeled shoes.

If I could dress up and wear heels to work I'd be tickled! It would always have to be heels with flats stashed in my desk drawer. Not to mention I'd be a comfortable heighth with at least inch heels.
