heel sounds
when you see someone (or do so yourself) walk in heels one of the first things that come to mind is the sound they make. do you find them pleasing? and do you prefer the crisp clicking of say, long, slender stiletto heels or a more subtle sound of a wedge?

I adore the sound the stiletto heel makes ... it's so dynamic, compelling and completely sensual. I know this may like a tired old cliche but wearing heels make me feel powerful and like a sexy force to be reckoned with.

cheaply made shoes make a loud noise and well made shoes don't as much...
It's because the heel is hollow in cheaper shoes...
:p

Sometimes it makes me think of an uncomfortable busines woman. But otherwise, being a big heel fan, I love it. But probably only when I wear them myself

I cannot BEAR the sound of heels, it really winds me up. I have no idea why but it grates on me a shocking amount.

One noise I can't stand is when one of my friends clomps around in her heels! It makes a total racket!

I like the sound of stiletto heels but I hate those hideous kitten heels that make a similar noise - there needs to be clear evidence that a heel exists that is making such a noise!

Heels are a staple of my 'shoe wardrobe' (yuck... sorry for sounding like an E! host... ) but the sound they make while I walk does bother me. Sometimes I walk in a manner that causes my heel to tap the ground twice with each step, lessening the impact: Cl-clop, cl-clop. It sounds like they are stuttering.

I like the sound it makes when the wearer has a nice walking rhythm.
I can't stand it when people walk fast in tiny steps in heels. The sound just bothers me. Don't like the sight of it either... I always think it makes the wearer look constipated...
Everyone should learn how to run with heels... haha.

I like stilettos when they sound like this (obviously, before that screeching noise )

My sound would be ker-splat...but that's only because I have absolutely no sense of balance.
