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?

I think, if this truly IS Katie, she might be still carrying some baby weight which is why she is still wearing black all the time and big shirts. She never used to dress like that. My goodness, she was thin as a rail. In any event, I don’t think the skinny jeans are good for her at the moment, and neither is the top. Better to have gone with a babydoll top and something with a flare, or even a tulip skirt. The shoes? Not to shop in. But that’s just me.

I wouldn’t wear high heels like that. I mean it looks great on her but they don’t look that comferting. And anyway who would wear heels like that to go shopping!

She’s a little strange, to be sure, but the shoes are great, and even though I’m nicely over 40, I’d wear them.

all i can say is she is dirty for it !!!!!!! that whole outfit is tacky and makes her look like she bought those a kmart or a consignment shop !

Jen on

The shoes by themselves are not bad, but her outfit is just awful!

So Katie’s like what? 5’9″ 5’10″or so in flats. These would make her about 6’3.” These shoes would put her in freak land. It’s my personal theory that Katie has had more trouble losing her “baby weight” than she expected. These pictures show her at close to pre-pregnancy size (a little bigger in the butt now than before.) I think she was at Barney’s to get new clothes to celebrate her final weight loss (She looks to have lost some between Teluride and now.)
I can’t decide who looks sillier in these gi-normous heels. The Olsen twins at 2 feet tall or Katie at 20 feet tall.

They are pretty but not for shopping.. she probably feels thinner in them…
