Would You Wear Mariah Carey's Super High Heels?

10/18/2007 at 06:00 AM ET


Mariah Carey has an established over-the-top style — but even knowing her love for big hair, slinky dresses and high heels, our jaws still dropped over the shoes she wore out to dinner in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. The singer (and new perfume maven) headed out to eat in a pair of Giambattista Valli platform heels that have a staggering five and a half inch heel on them (135 mm, to be exact). We cannot imagine being able to take one step in a pair of heels that high, much less spend a whole night out in them (although it does look like Mariah is getting a little help)! But maybe we’re just wimpy so we want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you wear Mariah’s high heels? Could you walk in them?

I really love mariah , but i must say that those shoes look soooo uncomfy , i would relly not wera those and they do look like stipper shoes , sorry Mariah but this time you did bad ! :s

Definitely not. She can’t even walk in them and why would anybody buy something they can’t walk in. The point is to have fun wearing your shoes, not trying to show off by having the best looking ones. They’re not even that attractive.

They look like a work of art when nobody is wearing them. I mean, they look cool, but in terms of practicality (and comfort), I don’t think that they are realistic. Cool looking though.

Those look like orthopedic shoes in the picture. NOT pretty….

I miss the old days when Mariah could walk and perform with energy. Now she wears these shoes and stands still on stage flipping her hair obsessively. Her music is still as incredible as ever, but there is something missing from her personality nowadays. It’s all just gloss. Where’s her substance? I miss the way she was back in 2000, post-Tommy, pre-diva!
