    its a personal choice to wear heels. I don't wear mine to impress anyone but myself I love how the feel as well. My favorite pair of shoes and one of my most comfortable are a pair of 4inch wedges.

    many heels are comfortable. ^wedges are a great option too. i think heels, platforms, those few extra inches give a woman confidence and a feel of being glam.. nothing wrong with that

    well-
    to be fair...
    there is nothing less attractive than a woman who cannot walk in her shoes...
    and some of the current styles of platforms, etc...
    really are not conducive to getting around town...

    i was out recently on a saturday night and found myself just cringing at all the young things tottering around in EXTREME heels and VERY short skirts...
    they really just looked tragic...
    :(
    so sad and so desperate in a way...:ermm:...

    though i have no prob with heels, i also enjoy a flat...
    it's all about the appropriateness of the shoe for the situation...
    i was wearing a 4 inch marc jacobs boot which i could actually go running in...
    paired with a little black dress about 2 inched above the knee
    boots are MUCH easier to walk in - regardless of the height of the heel...
    also- the thickness of the heel makes a world of difference...
    spikes are MUCH trickier and can induce the aforementioned 'tottering'...
    :p

    ps- a strong core ( abdominal muscles) and good posture makes it much easier to walk in very high heels ...
    maybe that lady is just out of shape???
    :innocent:....


    :lol:

    ^ Softgrey, you have summed it up perfectly.

    Heels are an aquired skill, some pick it up really easy, others can't get on with them no matter how hard they try. I am saddened when I see a woman wearing heels that are too high for her as it completely ruins her whole look, then again when you see a woman who really can walk in heels moving with grace and pose it is beautiful, and I don't mean the catwalk strut which is almost dangerous. Perhaps there should be evening classes for wearing heels.

    Nice read.

    Thing is, there's another reason. A scientific reason why women should wear high-heels though I wont post it on here.

    Soft grey, I couldn't agree more. Wearing heels that you can't walk in is pointless and destroys the whole look.
    Fashion should have at least some degree of praticality. There are plenty of really cute flats around.

    The scientific (medical) reason I know of suggests just the opposite: that it is bad for your back and can haunt you years later.

    The only one I know of that isn't against heels has something to do with the way women balance, making heels possible for them but awkward for men. that however, does not suggest wearing heels. What is this argument in favour of heels?

    ^I said I know of it (as in I've heard it), not that I could verify it, or if it's even plausible. Chill.

    I would never wear high heels to work or uni. Ever. I just don't think that it is suitable for those kinds of situations (where I want to be taken seriously) to wear high heels. For me, heels are for going out and having fun, not for work. High heels are meant for looking beautiful, and that's just not my top priority.

    And I'm sure as hell not going to wear high heels to work after I finish med school - how silly to walk around in a hospital in high heels :blink: Hello future me wearing 4 inch heels and being covered in blood and other body fluids :rofl:

    ^ there's plenty of office jobs where wearing high heels is the norm. But I agree, I never wear heels to uni.
