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

The highest heels I wear?
Any walking involved: 3 inches. Preferably a wedge.
Minimal walking, looking good is key: 4 inches, stiletto.
Driving my husband seriously crazy: 4.5 inches.

Above that, the arch is usually too steep for me to walk. Anyone suggest a 5+ inch heel I can walk (a little) in?

Indoors only: 5+ inch stilettos, boots.

Sheryl mentioned “ballet boots”. What are they?

Jessica’s shoes look like part of a costume, not fashion. I wonder if under that overcoat, she’s not dressed as a french maid or something.

Gwen’s shoes look great – and I love seeing a mother enjoying herself (so many give it up “for the kids”). But it concerns me she is carrying her kid around in such high heels!

she is going to drop that weird looking little kid on his head…she had better get him a helmet if she is going to continue wearing stilts and carrying the little monkey.
