The only thing that makes you awkward in heels is if you don’t have the confidence to wear them. If you feel comfortable, you will look comfortable and thus attractive and great. Being called a “giant” isn’t a bad thing; it means you stand out. Now you just have to own it.posted about 5 years ago
I’m 5’7" too, and I used to feel like like I was too tall to wear heels. But who really cares what someone said in 10th grade? Who really cares what anyone thinks, apart from you? I don’t think there is a “too tall” for heels. I don’t think Karlie Kloss cares!posted about 5 years ago
ehh, sometimes I know how you feel. I’m 5’8 but I love heels too much not to wear them, so I just shut those silly thoughts off, put my amazingly beautiful heels on and feel fantasic ;)posted about 5 years ago
Im also 5’7.(I do not consider myself tall actually) And I will rock my 3.9-5.1 inches heels when I feel like it! I don’t care if I might become taller than a lot of people.(I actually quite like noticing how short many men are when I put on a pair of heels haha. And I do love my men tall. So when going out Im always wearing heels, am I the only single woman who feels this way? hehe).
As AgitaV said – I want to wear my beautiful heels and feel great. I do not wear heels everyday though. But if Im going out – you’ll never find a pair of flats on my feet.
SUP SAME HEIGHT LADIES! I’m also at 5’7! I wear 5 inch shoes a lot of the time, like today. It really makes no difference. Sure you’re taller walking around but no one really cares, seriously. They don’t. And if they say something it’s likely that they want your shoes or they’re extremely obnoxious and unkind (like most highschool kids are).
I’m in university btw. I’d say about 50% of the girls I see in class wear some sort of heel.
I agree with naunet!
Also! You’re in highschool = freedom for self-expression, especially fashion. I’d say give heels a try again. Wear ’em like you would any other shoe.posted about 5 years ago
I’m 5’11ish so I know how you feel. It’s hard finding nice heels because I can’t wear platforms, but there aren’t that many nice heels that are low.
You are definitely not too tall to wear heels though! You probably will get noticed more, but that’s a good thing, models are tall!posted about 5 years ago

haha i’m only 5’1" and i feel like a giant whenever i wear heels [[well, most of my friends/fam are around my hight so that’s probably why haha]] but after a while i like the hight and like that i can reach things that i usually wouldnt be able to. haha but really tho, you being 5’7" and wearing heels isn’t a big thing. you rock em girl and rock em hard ;]posted about 5 years ago
thanks. this is helping. and yeah the low heels are never really that cute. but gah i wish i was 5’1.. i would definitly wear heels all the timeposted about 5 years ago
You have to wear what you feel comfortable and cute in…and don’t let other people dictate what that is. Besides, maybe she didn’t mean it so much as an insult- maybe it just came out wrong and she actually meant it more like “you’re an amazon!”posted about 5 years ago
haha thanks. maybe she did mean it in a different way.. never thought about thatposted about 5 years ago
all runways models are taller than you and they always wear heels! you just have to be comfortable with it!posted about 5 years ago
Girl. Are you seriously going to let someone control what you wear? I think tall women that wear heels look elegant and/or fierce. I would love to be tall, I am only 5"1!posted almost 5 years ago
you guys make me feel better. i might start back. but i’ve always wanted to be shorterposted almost 5 years ago
Girl, I know exactly how you feel! I used to feel the same way when I was younger. I’m 5’8" so I’m already pretty tall and most of my heels are 4 inches….so that would make me 6 feet tall with them on!!
You’re never too tall to wear heels. I absolutely love them and I could care less when people say I look like a “giant”, or even better, “Amazon woman.” Even when I dated a guy who was shorter than me I was like, “Listen, I’m not giving up my heels for anyone. So you better not mind me looking taller than you!” haha
Be proud of your height! Most people would love to be taller :)posted almost 5 years ago
I know exactly how you feel, well probably worse, I am 5’10 :) And I love to rock a good pair of heels! If you got it flaunt it, everyone else wishes they were tall too!posted almost 5 years ago
