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?

I personally wear 4″ heels on a daily basis, wherein I walk miles around school and do errands and housework and such. I am short, so I rely on heels to give me height. Plus, they are cute! I even wear heels in the snow. The highest heels I have are almost 6″. It just takes practice. My most comfortable shoes are a pair of 4″ heels. Some of us just prefer the higher heels.

Being taller isn’t why ladies want to wear high heels…it’s about being sexier. I am only 5 feet 3 and I don’t wear heels for height but more for looking sexy when I wear a dress!

I am hardly ever caught without my heels on. I wear stillettos on a daily basis and have just embraced the platform stilletto at 5-5 and a half inches (which are actually much more comfortable than my 4 inch skinny stillettos I might add) I even have heels on my flip flops! It’s funny though because my fiance is only 5’8 and I am 5’5 without heels and so he has asked me not to wear heels on our wedding day so I won’t be taller than him. I am respecting his request but for one of the dressiest days of my life I am going to be in some good ole ballet flats or flip flops instead of classic heels, which I wear on a daily basis. Irony is a funny thing!

I wear platforms a lot and they seem to me to be easier to walk in. So maybe that is the case with these.

I just really like these shoes.

I don’t mind the heels or height. In fact I just bought the sweetest closed toe ankle strap leather heels from VS and can’t wait to get them. What is disturbing is that whenever her or her sister are photographed, they always look depressed and messy.

They look like stripper shoes. Sorry.

what is up with the olsen twins? they have money and people to help direct them and they both look like boho trash when they could be setting style trends instead of “what not to look like” they both need the help of TLC what not to wear.

I’m also super short/petite (5’1) and I LOVE heels. Unfortunatley, I also have wider feet, so that, combined with my love for heels or any type of pretty shoes, will make me a very likely bunion surgery candidate in the future. My highest pair at the moment are the Louboutin Decolletes which are 4+ inches. The height slightly push me over my comfort zone. However, Manolo Blahniks seems to fit my feet perfectly, and I can stand all day and sprint in my 90mm Manolos. The perfect arch and roomy head on those shoes, in my opinion, make them more comfortable and healthier for my feet than wearing flat flip flops with no arch support.
