How High Are Ashley Olsen's Heels

For some of us, high heels come out on only special occasions. But for petite Ashley Olsen, heels are her daily footwear — for everything from red carpet events to picking up bouquets at the local florist. But this pair of extra-high Balenciaga platform pumps stopped us in our tracks. How high are those heels!? Carrying flowers as big as she is, Ashley is able to maintain her balance in her almost five-inch heels. Wow! Even though she isn’t the first star we’ve spotted trucking around town in some seriously high heels, we’re sticking to our ballet flats for now. Tell us: What are the highest heels you’ve ever worn? Do you wear them on a daily basis?

Used to wear 3-4″ heels every day, ’til the orthopedic surgeon said I needed surgery to fix the bones in my feet! I’m flat shoes now, with an occasional high heel day. The heels will get you – ask any doctor.

The shoes are cute, but she definitely needs to go back to blonde!

Hey, You got to give it to her. I’m 38 and can’t even walk in 4 inch heels.

I once bought the sweetest red suede, peep toe pumps that were a 4 inch heel. I walked a couple of blocks and felt like to balls of my feet were on fire. I hobbled over to the nearest shoe repair and had the cobbler cut an inch and half off my lovely too high shoes. Now I wear them with no problem.

Personally I know how frustrating it is to be short and petite. I married a wonderful man who is 6’3 so on our wedding day I wore 4 1/2 inch heels. I wore those shoes out. Most comfortable pair of heels I had ever owned.

You know what? they’re still very young and won’t know anything until the reach 40 or 50 years of age and then they’ll pay for it BIG TIME.

Ladies, ladies, ladies…Havent u ever heard of sacrificing in the name of beauty? There is nothing sexier than a pair of 4 or 5 inch stillettos. I practically sleep in mine.

Rachel, that was a very immature comment. Just because we arn’t 40 or 50 doesn’t mean we don’t know anything. We all need to make mistakes to grow and learn. Without that we would know nothing. My Grandma has worn extremely high heels every single day of her life, she’s now 70 and still wears them, every single day. Never once in my life have i seen her in anything but heels. She has no problems with her feet whatsoever. On the other hand, i’m 23, have worn them a few times and pay for it. So who is to say that someone is or is not going to have problmes? They are shoes for peetsake. Let her wear them. If it causes problems later in life, it’s obviously her problem, isn’t it? But what do i know? I’m not 50, so i’m just an idiot!!! Hmm, wonder how i got that internship at the local hospital for being such a downright idiot. Arn’t Dr’s all over the age of 50?!?!?
