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

I use to be a dancer and wore 6-8 inch heals and I think they make your legs and body look very sexy ecspeacialy when your only 5’2

I am 5’2″ and own a pair of 31/2, but I would definitely go higher if the shoes were cuter. I think if they get too high, they start looking ridiculous, and, the more guys you are taller than, the better!

I think it is crazy to wear 6’in heels!!Your beautiful the way you are,tall,short,skinny,big,it is what is in your heart.

3.5″ seems to be the magic number. Anything higher, and I’m bound to trip on myself. I find that after 3.5″ my calves look a little too flexed…not a good look for me.

I’d love to be brave enough to wear heels as high as those, but! I’m walking too much, even when I go out in the evening, so these high heels are very unpractical for me, unfortunatelly…

Nicky on

I would if it fit the outfit!

I LOVE HEELS!!! Its so ladylike. Im tired of females walking around in tennis shoes all the time. Just like my mother taught me, obvisously Gwen and Jessica’s mother taught them…Some girls have it, and some dont. Thank Goodness WE HAVE IT. Those females that hate becuz of our sexy shoe wearing…JOIN THE FAN CLUB!

Well the highest I go is 4 inch heels. I think I could walk in 6 inch – would take sometime but I would master it. I love heels they are sexy for females! I know the guys stare at aww at me when they see how high my shoes are wonder how in the heel my feet don’t hurt! HEELS ROCK!

The highest I own is a pair of 4 inch Giuseppes and I’m in love with them, but I’m a shoe “you-know-what” – Giuseppe, Louboutin, Roberto Cavalli, Jimmy Choo, Mr. McQueen…you name it, I love it, so I certainly would give a higher heel a try. 4 is probably my realistic limit though. I absolutely HATE flats, I’m 5’5 and that’s pretty average and you’ll never catch me in a pair of flats dressed to go somewhere, even to the grocery store. I will wear a CUTE flip flop on vacation and my sneakers for work outs, but that’s the extent of it. LONG LIVE HIGH HEELS!!!!
