    I wore a pair of silver high heels to prom with my midnight blue dress...Ugh.  It wasn't the shoes that killed me though.

    I have never worn heels because I am too tall for them and would probably break my neck even if I tried to wear heels lol....

    I'm Not Suprised

    High Heels were developed for men in the first place. I'm not suprised that you dont like to wear them.

    Heels For Me?

    No. I'm too tall. But I feel like a godess wearing them. My sistyer taught me how to walk in them when I was young.

    Too Tall

    I have always loved heels! (just like a lot of other woman we were wearing our momsheels during our days of playing dress up) I just can't wear them because I am already 5' 10". I guess I technically could but I already feel so self conscious about my height that I don't want to...

    Not Anymore

    When I was younger I used to wear very high heeled shoes, that usually were a size smaller than my own. I kept them on all day and I never took them off as I was afraid that I couldn't put them back on. As a result, way before I was 40, my feet were ruined. I guess I have been...

    Not Because I Don't Like Them

    I think they are adorable and sexy. Problem being I have practically non-existent ankles. Even shoes that are a little high in the heel are uncomfortable. Other thing is,high heels look best in formal wear and I don't have a reason to dress up.

    When I wear heels (very rarely), after an hour, or so, my feet kill, so I usually keep to flats. And as someone else said, being tall, and wearing heels isn't always a good thing! I'm 5'8

    I Can't Walk In Them.

    It is a pitiful sight to see me attempting to walk in heels.  I am getting better.  But I prefer thick heels, like on my hooker boots, and wedge sandals.

    I Love Them But..

    I think high heels are possibly the cutest shoes ever invented, but I'm already 5'11" so they're not too practical for me. Plus flip flops are soo much comfier!

    They Hurt!

    I have problems with my legs and feet and my muscles anyways. Any type of shoes except lightweight trainers and sandals cause me pain, it's not worth it. I don't mind my height anyway :) I'm 5ft5" and my gf is a lot shorter, what would be the point?

    High Heels

    I do enjoy wearing high heels when I dress but it has been difficult to find high heels that fit. I shared a story in another group about my trip to DSW. A couple of weeks ago I went to payless and did find some high heels in larger sizes but the width was too narrow. I'll...

    Wish I Could Sometimes

    I find flats so much more comfortable besides strangely enough I feel too lady like in high heels even though naturally I come across as being very feminine. I have arthritis in my feet so thats the main reason tho.

    I Would Love To, But It Hurts

    I love heels, pretty ones. But they hurt more than anything.I think shoes are created for you to feel comfortable. So, I don't wear heels often. Anyone here knows any tips or tricks how to wear heels without feeling the pain?
