I like heels but am an athlete so i go for what's comfortable mostly. And like Vicbong said platforms are it!

Love this article... I also do not wear high heels...I already have bad feet for other reasons...but still there is no way I could even attempt heels. I do agree tho that they are wonderful and I do wish at times that I could wear them.

Great article! I too, am a non-high heel kinda gal.. I wear platform heels instead.. at least they're more comfortable than heels and makes me look wayyy better than when I'm in flats.

When I was in school I wore heels every day to the point that when I left school and got a job that required me to wear flats my feet and legs were actually in pain in flat shoes. Four years later my feet have adjusted fine, but I do find myself missing the days when I had heel wearing stamina...because wearing flats every day has definitely beaten it out of me!

i usually don't like to wear flats, they don't fit my feet right. i do have over twenty pairs of heels that i wear almost daily. i know it sounds totally twisted and made up, but for some reason i can walk easier in extremely high heels, than in tennis shoes. Heels are elegant, beautiful, and if worn enough, can be very beautiful and graceful.

I prefer heels. This might sound weird, but I'm more comfortable in them. You see, first of ll, my feet are shaped wrong, so heels provide arch support for me, unlike flats. Also, I feel more confident in heels. I prefer them in almost every way, unless I'm gonna be running around. Heels are awesome. Elegant.

I am a combination of the two. I wear heels and flats; although my flats usually have a little heel on them. I have found a heel with a platform is the most comfortable and offer the wearer longer wear. While I want to be fashionable, the health of my feet is more important.

Im certainly the second type but i do love heels with a passion the only thing is i dread the pain.If only they could make heels that are guaranteed to be painless,i'm sure i would wear them everyday.I have tried wedges since they are regarded as painless but ive realised at some point they do start hurting especially if you stay on your feet for too long..

I read in an article, and i know from personal experience, that heels at or under three inches high are almost painless. If you are interested in wearing more heels, i think this would help significantly

I love heels. I try to wear them as much as possible, because they make everything look good.The only heels I have problem wearing is pumps. They never stay on my feet and I can't figure out how to make them stay, even the really tight pairs come off of my feet when I walk.

I wear heels almost every single day -- all day, at work even. I find people who aren't "high heel people" often haven't tried wearing comfortable heels. I'm a high heel person -- have been for the past six years -- but I can't make it over an hour in stilettos. Thicker heels made of light material, wedges, etc. massively improve weight distribution, prevent pain and make walking a lot easier.

I agree with what you said and I'm actually like you. I try my best to wear heels 'cos they're lovely and they make you look sexier than usual but they are just beasts! I hate how my feet would be in pain for a whole week just to look good for 4-5 hours. But, I won't stop wearing heels and I'm kind of getting addicted on buying heels. :)) xx Renee

i wonder if someday historians will look back at this lifestyle of "heels" like they do today with foot binding or neck lengthening as a strange practice for a beauty they no longer understand, only in the form of shoes. but by then another strange practice will have appeared.

I think exactly that whenever my feet are dying in heels!

Well I gotta say as much as I love heels, it just seems I would look out of place at school in them. But since Im pretty short (5´0), heels are just my best friends..so what the pain, so what the ache. I love them and will make them "a life style" for me! very inspiaring article! :D

Perfect article! Never thought of the "it's a lifestyle" thing but it's so true, haha.

I love heels! But yes, I too tend to wear more flats because it is much much more practical. Especially for work. I've actually identified the types of heels that I can survive in. Yes - Open toe heels (Doesn't hurt!), platform and thick stilettos (stable!), wedges (Comfy forever!) No - Thin stilettos (weak thighs!), Anything higher than 4 inch (Bcs of my height, I'd look like a weird giant!)
