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?

can you say rocky horror picture show?! those are the same platforms that tim curry wore as frank-n-furter the space alien transvestite…so yes, you guys are on to something, that’s not really katie, but an imposter alien who will actually be beamed back to the home planet any day now…

and some flares would be a better choice overthose straigh-leg pants..maybe her hem was too long..

I adore them and would wear them as long as my tootsies could handle it. I have a couple pair of Bongos that are probably not quite that high, but close. They are surprisingly comfortable and I’ve shopped in them before. Depends on how these are built, but I’d do it if I could!

Love Them! But couldn’t wear them – too high.

Just beacuse she’s engaged to a forty-five year old, does not mean she has to dress like one too. Dress your age Katie, you’re only 28!!

I personally think those are ugly….and so is the whole oufit.

Misty on

I think that looks more like Penelope Cruz than Katie. I don’t like those shoes at all!

That is not a “daytime” shoe the only girls that I know that where that type of shoe out mostly “walk the street” at night. And I’m sure Tom dislikes them as well cause she is Amazon women next to him with those shoes… yikes

Stephanie Goldberg on

I think she’s forced to wear those shoes so she can’t run the hell away from Tom and the Church of Scientology.

i dont like the shoes and i dont think she should wear heals that high considering she’s already taller then Tom now she’s really gonna tower over him… Some quick advice for Katie get a pair of running shoes and run as far away from Tom as possible before he completely takes you into his darkened world.

these shoes are the b-e-s-t!!

they are really really cute and i would SO where them!

i think that personally, i was born in heels, (not literally, obviously) but i know that i would be comfortable in them and i would like to compliment Katie on wearing them in public!

maybe next time she should dress them up and really bring the attention on them by wearing a short, miu miu dress, or be casual with cargo pants and a cap sleeved top.

but good choice with the skinny jeans!
