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

yes! I own nothing but heels. The taller the better since 7th grade. I am now a sophmore in college. I love heels they make my legs look longer i just really like them

Gwen Stefani – heck yeah. Has been Biel, heck no.

I love high heels! The higher the better, but my trick is that I only wear the SUPER high ones when I know I’m going to be sitting down most of the night. This way I still get to look chic and stylish and my feet aren’t killing me at the end of the night.

Nearly all my heels are 4″. I have a pair of 4″ and 5″ boots. Honestly, my feet don’t hurt at all when I wear heels / platforms. I wear all different kinds of shoes: wedges, peep-toe heels / platforms, heels / platforms, ballerina flats, mary-jane’s…

I like Jessica Biel’s platforms, the red is so sexy. Gwen Stefani, she can pull off any kind of shoe basically. Kingston is so handsome!

6 inch heels are way too high! I love high heels, and 4 1/2 is my max. And why is it ok for Gwen Stefani to tote her baby around and down staircases in 6 inch heels, but when Britney wore heels and tripped with Sean Preston everyone was all in a frenzy?? Seems Gwen is being a bit irresponsible herself!

I absolutely love high-heels. My higest pair are 4 inches and my foot is only a size five. It is absolute torture, but it is definitely worth the look. Besides, heels aren’t half as bad when they’re on boots. I love Gwen’s shoes but I’d still be a bit scared if I were Kingston.

I love heels! I don’t like heels any higher than maybe 4 inches because I’m 5 feet and I don’t want to look drastically tall, it’s kinda tacky.

stripper heels!

I’m with “G.” How can Gwen do that with a child? I think she’s awesome and is probably a great mom, but I draw the line there. I never wear anything more than 4″ heels and I am hesitant to do that if I know I will be carrying my daughter.

I wear a pair of 2 and 1/2 inch heels almost every day. They are comfortable to me. Actually, wearing flats hurts my feet a lot more than heels, because it feels like my heels are pounding on the ground and they get very sore. I’m 5’6″ so the extra 2 and 1/2 inches makes me feel like a model =)

On special occasions, I bring out higher ones, my highest pair being 5 inches. They are hard to walk in, but still pretty comfortable.
