What IS it about High Heels?


Heels

Yeah, yeah, I know, they make the legs look longer, and the wearer look cuter and sexier. BUT, when I am at one of those mega-walking places like Disneyland, or a mall the size of a major metropolitan city, and I see a woman mincing by in sky-high heels, I just want to know: "How much pain are you in, and is it worth it?"

Actually, I find high heels to be comfortable! I can walk miles in them!

Patty said...

Please explain to us how you can walk miles in high heels!

I can't wait to hear this explanation, Marina!

I have flats that tear my feet up, and heels that are pretty comfy. But since heels make me over 6' tall, I usually wear flats.

kat said...

Tell me, Cori, how can heels be comfy enough to walk more than about ten feet? Maybe I've just never found any that were!

Steff said...

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE---anyone who can post photos, names of high heels that are actually comfortable and walkable, I will love you forever! I'm short, I love heels, I hate the agony of wearing them!

I gotta agree with Cor on this one, it's just the shoes! I haven't been able to find a good brand, it seems to just be the style. I love love heels. But Disneyland?! Come on peeps!

kat said...

Liza, you may be right. Maybe I haven't found the right pair yet. I tend to not want to spend much on heels since they are things I only wear for special occasions. I prefer to put the hard-earned cash in running shoes. If I should find some that are actually comfortable, I will post them. No breath-holding, though.

The thing is even if they are comfortable, they pitch yur body forward so that the weight is on the balls of your feet, and that is really bad for your feet, your legs, and your back, and your posture!

DM, do you wear earth shoes?

first of all those are my shoes in that picture (yes, they are hooker shoes and a bachelorette party gift). second of all i love heels (not hooker ones) and have some really comfy heels. i wish i could wear them all the time but some you just can't. but anyone who wears heels to amusement parks, or GROCERY SHOPPING for that matter, are crazy.
