Katie Holmes is Steppin' Out

08/21/2006 at 06:00 AM ET

We love seeing new moms get all glammed up again, but we were a little surprised to see Katie Holmes wearing those sky-high YSL pumps just to go shopping at Barneys. With those thick platforms and cone heels, the New Look shoes are clearly what’s in for Fall, but they are so high that they make us nervous that she’s headed for an actual fall! Is it just that she can wear such high heels when her slightly-shorter fiance isn’t around? Or does she really find them comfortable enough to shop in? Our sneaker-shod feet salute you!

Tell us: What do you think of Katie’s shoes? Would you wear heels this high?

They can’t be comfortable because although they ARE platforms, they still have too much of an incline. I agree: Kudos to new moms who put their best foor forward, but please don’t risk your neck, back and knees! You’ll need them!

Is that even Katie Holmes????? Sure as heck doesn’t look like it. The shoes rock, but look more like a fall fashion accessory.

This does not look like Katie Holmes at all. I think this is an impersonator.

If I could wear and be comfortable in them, sure I would…Sure, why not?

Although I love Katie’s shoes, I would NOT choose to go shopping in them. When shopping, I go with comfort clothes (and shoes) all the way. Blue jeans, a cute comfy top, and a cute pair of slip on shoes are my usual shopping duds. I love Katie though. She’s beautiful!

I agree that the incline is too high to be comfortable for shopping, I like the shoes though…HATE the shirt, she’s a mom now, not a grandma.

those shoes are really cute and good for her if she wants to wear them. so what if tom is shorter than her. if she wants to wear heals, she can…provided she doesn’t walk funny in them. i would love to wear those but being 6′, that would be a little reduculous. 2 1/2″ is the most i wear.

There are a lot of women who feel more comfortable in heels. It’s like their feet were made for them. I can only go for a couple hours in them before the aching starts. I just think she’s been in sweats and spit up for months and wanted to feel beautiful and glam. She definitely achieved it! She looks beautiful.

Yay on the heels. Nay on the Blue Blockers.

So. Many. Things. Wrong.
First off….The shoes are made for the stage, not for shopping. And when I say stage, I don’t mean the theatre. The billowing shirt looks like something Barbara Steisand wore in the 1970’s. The belt is too high and the pants are too long, giving the impression of leg warmers at the bottom. The girl needs a stylist. STAT!
