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 heel I have ever worn was 3 inches. I wore them on a trip to Vegas and ended up having to take them off and walk barefoot down the Strip because my feet were aching! Never again!

Gwen’s ALOT older than Britney, she should know better- and not be so self-important to promote her style above a baby’s safety. Sure, she might be able to walk in those with a child, but why?

My highest heels are 4″. I can wear them for maybe an hour and a half standing. But forget about walking. I’d have to have a car to get around.

Ive worn heals like that only on one occasion and that was for halloween! But Gwen is carrying her child in those heals makes me question her intelligence twice!

I have a pair of 4″ “roach killer” (as my hubby and co-workers call them) pointy toed pumps…I ade my new year’s resolution to be wearing more heels and I have slowly trained my feet to accept them. but nothing feels as good as putting on slippers when i get home from work. :-)

41/2 inches, and I am 5’10:)
I love being tall, anytime I wear heels that tall out on the town I always get people who ask me, are you REALLY this tall?! hahaha, they make me like 6’3. Awesome:) I have long legs and love to show them off, I think more tall girls should embrace their height instead of being afraid of it:)!!

I wear 3-4 inch heels when I feel like dressing up. It’s not a big deal for me though cause I’m a ballroom dancer. I’m used to it. The height really lengthens your legs and makes you look skinnier!

i wish i could wear heels like that! but seriously how can a girl wear heels and not feel like she’s going to die after 10 minutes?! i really do want to wear them but they hurt my feet

I’m only 5′ tall and don’t get me wrong I love being short, but sometimes heels just look great with something you’re wearing, and hey if they just happen to make me a bit taller in the process…all power to them. =)

I’m used to walking around in 4 1/2 inch heels sometimes, and I consider anything lower really comfortable as well. However I think these heels are way TOO high. You could break things in these heels. While they look dynamite on Gwen and Jessica, I think I’m going to steer clear of them myself.
