Would You Wear Mariah Carey's Super High Heels?

10/18/2007 at 06:00 AM ET


Mariah Carey has an established over-the-top style — but even knowing her love for big hair, slinky dresses and high heels, our jaws still dropped over the shoes she wore out to dinner in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. The singer (and new perfume maven) headed out to eat in a pair of Giambattista Valli platform heels that have a staggering five and a half inch heel on them (135 mm, to be exact). We cannot imagine being able to take one step in a pair of heels that high, much less spend a whole night out in them (although it does look like Mariah is getting a little help)! But maybe we’re just wimpy so we want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you wear Mariah’s high heels? Could you walk in them?

Cute shoes but too high for me.

Rebecca on

I love those heels! Sure I would wear them, but I don’t think they look right with Mariah’s dark jeans.

Lisa on

Those aren’t shoes; they’re stilts! And no, I wouldn’t wear them. They look ridiculous. Take off the platform and about an inch and a half off the heel, then I would.

Joanna on

The gold one are pretty.

Cece on

Those shoes look like they belong to a stripper. And she can’t even walk in them. So, why did she even bother wearing them?

Victoria on

I agree with Dawn, she does look uncomfterable.. but i would try them on, im up to trying any shoe on, not nessicarily be able to walk in them

Carrie on

You all are not looking at the whole shoe. They’re PLATFORM shoes so the “heel” is really only about 3 1/2″. They’re not hard to walk in at all.

The shoes look great, she looks great, however they are preety high. Heck, she;s wearing them for the style and not the comfort. Let’s all remember “Beauty is Pain”….

I wouldn’t wear them and she looks unconfortable.
