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?

BTW: someone earlier mentioned looking for comfortable insoles. I think the Foot Petals are by far the best of all the different types of insoles I’ve tried. You can buy them off of, or department stores. They are very cushy, but slim enough that they don’t alter the size and fit of your shoes. I especially love the “Foot Petals Killer Kushionz”. I put them in all my stilleto boots…They have revolutionized my shoe collection!

More power to her . I have flat feet and I am only 5 feet tall so , I really don’t wear too much heels . I am glad that she can walk in those shoes. They look uncomfortable – Just my opinion .

I love wearing heels and where them daily. Every shoe I wear has a heel on it. I am so used to heels that it feels awkward when I wear flat shoes. I think high heels are sexy and if you can walk in them then why not wear them.

I agree that the Olsen twins look extremely messy and trashy most of the time.

I’ve always worn heels for going out, but try to stick to platforms as they give you a little extra height (I’m 5’3″) without the harsh angle. I used to dance in 6″ stillettos, so 4-5″ heels are a piece of cake.

I think they’re so high because they have wheelies inside the platform. There’s no way that skinny little thing can lift up those big shoes.

The highest heels I will wear are 3-1/2″.
I love them, but they don’t love me.
I used to wear them all day to work, but now my feet are feeling it.
I try to limit the heel wearing to a couple of hours at best.
I want to have pretty bare feet as I age, not a load of bunions.

Well, I’m twenty and I wear 4 inch heels all of the time. My highest pair is 5 inches, but they are a wedge style, making them much more comfy. I think that the comfort level depends on the arch of your foot; mine are very arched, so they feel better in heels than in flats. My doctor agrees with me too.

I love Mary ;]

Nice shoes!!

Even the first few steps in those heels would make me cry. But I guess it’s depends on her preference.. If she wants to wear them, she wears them.. Besides in the end, it’s her fault if she cries about sore feet or something like that, you know?! .. Unless, of course, someone else told her to wear them, then she can just throw the things at a wall or out the window or something =)

I have a pair of heels similar to Ashley’s. My heels go up to 5″. I am in between in height, I’m not too tall, but not short neither. I wear heels all the time. I wear everything from pumps, stilettos, clunky type shoes too wedges. For some reason, it doesn’t really make that much of a difference to me if I wear heels and than switch to a pair of flat Mary Jane shoes or just plain sneakers. I like the heels on Ashley, nothing wrong with wearing them.
