How High Are Ashley Olsen's Heels

For some of us, high heels come out on only special occasions. But for petite Ashley Olsen, heels are her daily footwear — for everything from red carpet events to picking up bouquets at the local florist. But this pair of extra-high Balenciaga platform pumps stopped us in our tracks. How high are those heels!? Carrying flowers as big as she is, Ashley is able to maintain her balance in her almost five-inch heels. Wow! Even though she isn’t the first star we’ve spotted trucking around town in some seriously high heels, we’re sticking to our ballet flats for now. Tell us: What are the highest heels you’ve ever worn? Do you wear them on a daily basis?

More power to her. I think she’s amazing for having the balls to walk in them big ol heels.

As much as I love high heels, I can’t wear them to do errands. I can barely even wear boots without feeling some pain. Sneakers are my best friend, heels are my occasional lovers! But when I was 20, I wore a lot of high heels! (Note to Ashley: at 30 it will catch up with you!)

I’m almost 16 and I have a pair of boots from Target by Issac Mizrahi, and they are 4 1/2 inches high. I wear them to school all the time. People love them. I’m extremely short (only 5′) so they give me a bit of boost. I’m still on the hunt for a good insole, but they are quite comfortable. Great look for fall.

How did they manage to photograph her so she looks like Edward Furlong? I can’t claim ever to have worn heels,
but they look incredibly uncomfortable (and unstable).
I think a stiff wind from the back would make her pitch forward.

And those flowers are seriously huge. She looks like she’s in Gulliver’s Travels.

Oh my gravy, those shoes are making MY feet hurt!

great that she can walk in those heels–but her feet will be in serious *permanent* trouble if she keeps it up (her ankles too)! high heels can cause damage, just as chinese foot-binding did… just think about it…

i’m only 4’11” and wear heels quite a bit, but sometimes I think that being short is seen as a disadvantage. THERE IS NOTHING WRONG with being under 5-4!!

Betty Page move over!
This little chick-a-dee is sporting some serious foot fetishist’s dream come true!

Looking forward to seeing some whips, riding crops and paddles with the next outing!

….reminds me of those J-P Gaulthier wild days….
