I used to wear high all all the time and everywhere, but now i only wear them in special occasions. They do make your life more difficult, the same way women in the old days had all sort of complicated outfits that really prevented them to do anything than look static and pretty, we have our Killer heels. Yes I felt prettier and more self confident, but is it worth it? A big fat no. My lifestyle and the city i live now is totally anti-heels, you need to be a able to move and fast if you actually want to do something worthwhile. The last thing I want is a pair of heels preventing me from doing the things that my male counterparts do without having to think if some walking is involved.
It actually makes me laugh when bloggers come to cities like London expecting to walk around all pretty and poised in their high heels and then find out that they are unable to walk to the end of the street with them, have to stop everywhere to sit down and are unable to go to anywhere at the end of the day because their feet are destroyed.
I think heels have a place, and no one should forbid a women to wear them to work if she feels like it, but for me they have no place in day to day activities anymore.
