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’m 19 and own a pair of 5 1/2 inch Coach stilletos which I abselutely love, and wore them to the 2005 VMA’s with a Versace. They’re gorgeous and I wear them all the time (my favorite is with my true religion jeans =) )

ashley is short and the heels make her taller. i don’t like high heels because i am 5’6 and tall enough.

I wear 4″ heeled pumps at home in the evenings daily. I feel in them better than in flat slippers. For housework I prefer 4″ knee-high boots. The highest heels I have are true 6″ pumps. But I wear them only for special events (parties, clubs etc.) and only for a few hours. Walk in them isnt too difficult – it just need practice!

Love Ashley’s shoes! I need heels that big myself, I’m even smaller than she is! I can only walk in 4 inches at the most though!

I don’t wear heels all the time, depends on my mood & outfit.

look their not that bad they’ve got a big platform at the bottom which is about 1 inch maybe more so that doent count as part of the heel. i have some heels like that and they are comfy to wear

These are great looking shoes! I would love to wear them for my husband, who admires really high heels on me. That will have to wait until I’ve given birth and have my sense of balance back. :-)

Does anyone know where to get these, or a reasonable knock-off?

As for what I wear, lately a lot of flats. But typically, 3 inch wedges for daily outings, 4 inch stilettos for fancier occasions. I have some 4.5 inch platform stilettos for very practiced (and short duration) outings. And beyond this, well, there are the bedroom-only shoes. :-)

samantha, they are by balenciaga and cost somewhere between $1220 – $1700 at Neiman Marcus – but – there are few on ebay for much less so check em out :)
