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?

I still wasn’t able to wear those high heels, they are super high. And why is she wearing it, if she’s not that short anyways?, besides they are too tall they are so cute=]

I just love them, so pretty. Having said that, there is no way on earth I could walk in them as a BBW. There are higher ones than that out there, just Google the heel height and you’ll see what I mean. ;-)

I would not and probably could not walk in those shoes,although what seems to
be soft cloth straps instead of other materials to bind the feet might be
extremely comfortable to wear ,Mariah seems to love them it is at least the
second time i have seen her with those recently.Mariah can wear whatever she
wants .

In my opinion Mariah Carey has almost flawless feet and toes always perfectly
maintained(makes me a little or too envious) and she knows it ,exposing them
as often as possible in her amazing collection of shoes and i would to if i
had her feet !
To me Mariah Carey has the most blissful feet and toes !

My only question is why? She’s like 5’8 or 5’9. She obviously doesn’t need the added height. I bet she’s taller than everyone in the restaurant, except her bodyguard. I can see them on Victoria Beckham because she’s short. So no, being a tall girl myself, I wouldn’t be caught dead in them unless I was trying them on as a joke.

She looks ridiculous, those shoes are terrible!

yes, i agree that her high heels look awesome, but there are lots of other shoes that look as good that are not as high as this one. i mean, yeah, you look awesome…. but then what if you trip BECAUSE OF IT?! not all of us are as fortunate to have somebody to hold onto… and it would be embarrassing if you can’t even walk in it/trip in it. but they look gorgeous. can’t they cut down on the height though?

Those shoes would look great on the little Dutch girl statue the neighbors have in their front yard. I think these shoes make better lawn art than tootsie art.
