    I wore them briefly for work experience

    (teaching) in university and when clubbing, but it was sooo not worth the agony. Walking normally should never be painful or cause permanent damage. These days, I try to find fun, sexy shoes with a wedge that are comfortable, too. I'm so much sexier when I'm enjoying myself and...

    ...I do adore a pair of smart-looking heels that aren't too high.

    My prom is coming up in June next year,

    and everyone is preparing for the dresses and the looks all the pizazz. I've chosen my dress (hopefully) and am looking forward to getting it and wearing it. I refuse, however, to wear heels. I refuse. I do not care how small I look compared to others, or whatever, heels will...

    Contrary to My Beautiful Red Shoes On My Icon

    I hate high heels!  Oh yes I'll wear them if I have too.  But as soon as I can, off them come.  I like my sneakers best!  I wonder who it was that thought high heels was a good idea?  I'd like to tell them they're a moron!  Sexy?  You think...

    Weak Ankles

    My ankles are weak to begin with.  Anything that puts undue pressure on them is going to be uncomfortable at best. That would be enough to keep me out of high heels...but there's more.  My feet were damaged pretty badly when I was a kid.  It's enough that I have a hard time...

    Too Clumsy For High Heels

    I find high heels to be very sexy but their not for me. Not saying I wouldn't love to be able to wear them but they hurt my feet and I find myself falling or walking funny.

    They can always zest up a cute outfit but why deal with pain for beauty? why are girls so concerned about looking good when they can find someone who loves them for who they are?

    I Feel Like I'm In Drag

    or playing dress-up like when I was a kid.  They're not something I would seriously wear, and every time I put them on I feel like I should be strutting down a catwalk or prancing around in my new super-long legs.  It actually feels really weird having legs that long...

    I had to wear heals for a school play once.

    I'm surprised I didn't fall down while I was walking across the stage!

    I still wear heels for special occasions,

    but I hate them. They hurt my feet and make it hard for me to keep my balance. Why can't we just wear sneakers 24/7?

    I've sprained my ankle twice

    while wearing high heels and my feet got swollen each time I've worn heels. I'm better off wearing my trainers.
