I’m 5’5" and I wear 3-4in. I don’t really like the way shorter heels look. So I tend not to buy them. Most days I wear flats but I think higher than 4.5" is overkill for me because most of my guy friends fall between 5’8" and 6’0" and I don’t want to be taller than them.posted over 2 years ago

I’m 5’4" but I love to wear 4 inch heels. I don’t really do it for the height, I mostly like the way my legs look in heels :Pposted about 2 years ago
I’m 5’4.5" and I wear 3-4 inches Wedges. For stilettos, 3 inches only. I know I below the avergae height but from where I came from, I’m actually one of the tallest around here. >weird<posted about 2 years ago
I’m 5’7.5, and I buy whatever shoes I like. However, I find myself in flats most of the time. Not only are they more comfy, but I feel more “grounded”.
I also too feel like a “giant” around people because where I live the average height for women is about 5’4 & for men it’s 5’9. This means the average woman in heels is shorter than me in flats, and in heels, I am taller than the average man. I admit, it does make me feel awkward. Maybe it shouldn’t, but it does…
When I want to dress up though, I go with heels, whether it’s a kitten heel or platform, the angle they give makes a difference.
I do wish more heels came in at 3" or less. There are so many great shoes out there that would be just as cute with a lower heel & more flattering on anyone over 5’6. I’m also sick of the stacked heel; it makes my foot look big & I don’t need the extra height. I wish more kitten heels were out there; you get the benefits of both with those – the ease of a flat & the flattering angle of a heel that lengthens the leg & makes the hips sway.posted about 2 years ago
