Do You Wear High Heels Like Gwen and Jessica?

04/16/2007 at 06:00 AM ET


I’m a terrible high heel wearer. Anything above 1-1/2 inches has me cringing and reaching for Band-Aids, insoles, you name it — anything to help ward off the inevitable blisters! So when I saw this photo of Gwen Stefani in her six-inch YSL Tribute pumps, all I could do was stare in wonderment. For me, just standing in heels that high would be hard enough! Add a baby and a set of stairs and it’s utterly impossible! That’s not to say Gwen doesn’t look as cool and stylish as always, but walking in heels this high obviously requires skills I don’t have. As for Jessica Biel’s – are these shoes or tools of torture? Until I grow a set of super-human, blister-proof feet, I think I’ll stick to my super-comfy Juicy Couture flats! Tell me: What’s the highest heel you wear?Kara Murphy

History repeating itself!Check out womens feet now, who wore high heels routinely in the 1950’s and recognize the damage they can do to one’s feet.So sad!!

Well, first of all wearing heels is a snap if your not a gorilla.
There is a certain talent that comes with wearing heels, if you have it you have it, if you dont you dont.

this is the magical power of fashion lol : sporting those shoes last year would’ve been a joke.
Gwen can wear anything, it always looks good, it drives me crazy!

Heels look great. I only wear 4 inch heels and above. I wear them daily, although i do walk to work in my flip flops and then change into the heels at the office. For all practical purposes, I agree that heels are not for walking in. But for all the girls who can’t wear them, while I feel for you, please don’t knock the girls who can pull it off. Most of you probably would wear those shoes too if you could. And to the few girls who mentioned it, 6 inch heels are not “ridiculous”, most people (men and women) think they are pretty hot.

I love heels, but why would you hold your child (Kingston) while wearing them? If you fall or the heel breaks off, what will you do?

My highest heels are 6 inches with a 1 inch platform. I bought it from an artist two years ago and they look incredibly similar to Louboutins except the sole is a patent black leather. They also have thick convertible heels as I can remove 1 inch from just the heel for running around, but they still look normal. Don’t ask me how he did it. They are also incredibly comfortable considering the heel height.

I love my heels. I am between 5.7″ and 5.8″ and spend my day in four inch heels. Special nights are five inch heels and once a month or so I get to spend the day in my ballet boots. Nothing is more sexy than a lady in heels. Sheryl
