How High is Too High?


I recently bought a pair of ankle boot heels which are far to high for any sane woman to wear. The truth is I'm too much of a wimp to go out in them. I know my feet have gone through all sorts to look good. They have bled, blistered, ached and pained all in the name of heels.


 I've been wearing heels for about three years now and they still hurt! I find If I'm at a club and my feet are killing me I just cannot have a good time! I'm miserable.


 So I pose this question: 
How high is too high? How far are you willing to go to look good?


Also:
What's the highest pair of heels you own?
How Often Do you Wear Heels?
Any Tips For Overcoming Heel Discomfort?



Much Love,

Good post. I love how heels look but hate the pain that they cause. I don't wear them often anymore, only if I am going out for the night.

My highest pair are about 5 inches but they have a platform so are not too bad. I find if the heel is chunkier they are not so bad, but stiletto heels cause me more pain!

I rarely wear heels and as a result it HURTS when I do because I don't like anything mid-high, it has to be high-high! Why do we do it?! xx

I love wearing heels. I mostly find them very easy to wear if they are a good fit and they offer good support. My highest pair is a black strappy pair that are about 6inches. They are uncomfie but just because the actual heel point is very thin..

@Sophie Thankyou :) I completely agree!!! A heel with more support is so much more comfy... strappy heels are hideous to walk in :S

@Lucy haha I'm to same! Really high ones always look prettier!!!! Especially when your feet are size 6 or bigger...you want them high to make your feet look smaller

i wish i could actually wear heels! iv got so many pairs but always wear flats! i was so happy when wedges came back in, even though they hurt my feet after a while!

I think 4.5 is the highest I can go comfort wise. My friend once stood on my foot with some heels that were 6 inches high and she crushed my ligament! My foot swelled up for about three weeks, it was so sore!

Have you tried those party feet gel pads??

@LLYMLRS I do love wedges :)
@Alison same here....omg that horrible!!! Did it heel ok? I've tried party feet years and years ago but they are shit - then again I was 13/14? I probs didnt use them right lol

I think heels are gorgeous and i drool over them in shops, occasionally buying sensible sized ones but i rarely wear them out. I feel more confident in flats because firstly i feel like bambi walking in them and secondly if you are going out drinking i fear that i will fall over and thats an extra 5/6 inches you have to fall and its going to hurt. If im only going out to a meal i will often wear them then because all i have to do is sit down and walk a short distance to the car and its a good chance to have a 'practise' wearing them out lol x

Haha I dunno, I've never tried party feet!

My foot healed fine. It was just bruised and swollen and very sore to walk on but the doctor said there was nothing he could do so I had to live on Nurofen for a few weeks!
