Do You Wear High Heels Like Gwen and Jessica?

04/16/2007 at 06:00 AM ET


I’m a terrible high heel wearer. Anything above 1-1/2 inches has me cringing and reaching for Band-Aids, insoles, you name it — anything to help ward off the inevitable blisters! So when I saw this photo of Gwen Stefani in her six-inch YSL Tribute pumps, all I could do was stare in wonderment. For me, just standing in heels that high would be hard enough! Add a baby and a set of stairs and it’s utterly impossible! That’s not to say Gwen doesn’t look as cool and stylish as always, but walking in heels this high obviously requires skills I don’t have. As for Jessica Biel’s – are these shoes or tools of torture? Until I grow a set of super-human, blister-proof feet, I think I’ll stick to my super-comfy Juicy Couture flats! Tell me: What’s the highest heel you wear?Kara Murphy

I love these shoes! And I seem to only feel comfortable and confident when I’m wearing heels or wedges. I’m 5’7″ so adding an extra few inches makes me pretty tall. If you can wear them without stacking it and breaking your heel (or ankle!) go for it because I think they are really good for your posture and look hot!!

I think that they both look great. Once you are really used to wearing heels a couple of extra inches doesn’t phase you. I can do anything in my heels even run. As long as you have confidence you wont fall. It’s just like balancing on figure skates, at first it seems precarious but once you stop thinking about it, you can do it!

No Way. I like living.

Wow!!! Why would you torture your feet like that, incline that your feet are at is definitely not healthy. I love the way Gwen has but I would never wear them.

I’m way-short, but can’t seem to break the 3″ barrier! Plus I would be “an accident waiting to happen” in anything too high.

i’ve never owned a pair of 1 1/2 shoes before and i’m not about the start either.

My everyday footwear is a pair of 4 1/2″ ankle boots- I rarely wear sneaks- just to work out- highest pair on heals though are my pink peeptoes at 5 1/2″. I’m more comfy in heals than flats plus i need the height i’m only 5’2″.

Anita on

The highest heel I own are about 4 inches. But I’m also 5’11

Heather on

I can’t wear heels…….I would break my ankle! I guess that is what you get when you are a jock!

Ashley on

3 inches is high enough for me. I would break my neck in anything taller than that! Also…these kinda look a little stripper-ish to me…I’m goin for the classy look.
