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 am 65 years old. Have been wearing 3″ to 4″ heels for roughly 50 years. Have found that as time passes, a blocky heel is better – lets me wear heels all day. I usually don my stilettos for evening, going out and special moments when I want to look great in a skirt. It is true, that I can’t wear flat shoes/sneakers any longer, my achilles/calf muscles won’t allow it.

I am tall enough, so I don’t need to be taller. Even so, I always wear very high heels. And they’re always sandals. I doubt that high heels were ever about turning girls into giants. To me it’s always been about displaying the curves of the female foot at their most sensual. These devices are not supposed to feel like sneakers. And, believe me, no sneaker gives you that secret feeling that a five or six inch stiletto provides. The question should be, “When last did someone leave the elevator on the wrong floor behind you just to admire your girly feet and edible toes?” That’s power.
