Even though I'm not that tall, I just like wearing them.

I do not wear heels to wear taller, the heels just fit my look, my body, I have been wearing heels since I was... 13! I love how my legs look in heels, I am very good at walking in them, they are just part of me at this point ;) I imagine if the people who know me would see me in flat shoes or sneakers they would be very confused!

Heels are sexy! I hate it when my heels dig in the grass and stuff...so I avoid them sometimes, but there is nothing better to finish a look!

I'm 5'2 so I wear heels to be taller, but I'm still not used to them and I can't wear them if I need to walk a lot. So I wear flats most of the time.

No, because I'm six feet tall, so I don't really need them. Plus, their evil for womens feet, no matter how pretty they look. Flats and connies are soooo much better.

Everyone who's saying they're short at 5'4" and 5'5" are cracking me up. lol. :) The average American woman is 5'4". I'm 5'0", so I definitely rely on heels to get through the day!

I'm 5'8-5'9 so I already feel like a giant, aka I have big person syndrome. Flats it is for me! Although I do adore the heels I own

@ 5'10, I don't really need to be taller, but I love the way they make my legs look!

I love my flats, and i'm about 5'7" so I don't really NEED the extra height, but I agree that some outfits just need heels to pull everything together!

Nope, I wear them just because I love them.

I'm 5'7" and I often wear flats (sneakers in winter and havaianas in summer are a must for walking) but I love wearing heels too - albeit comfortable ones. I have a few pair of boots with 3-3,5" steady heels and they are my favourite both for work and going out. I feel more confident and walk in a more ... feminine way ;-)

Nope, I'm 5'2, proud, and a lover of high heels! Simple.

I don't wear heels very often, because I love other options like ballet flats, chucks and flat boots... But when I do wear them is because I like them, not for the extra height. I'm comfortable being on the short side (5'5'').

When you're 5'1" like I am, sometimes clothes just look so much better with heels! I don't do it all the time but sometimes I need the help.

I am short at 5'2", but my legs are also disproportionately short too (a 30 inch inseam on pants is just a tad too long) so I wear the heels to make my legs look longer.

I don't wear them to look taller; I wear them to look THINNER.

Sometimes, but in general I wear flats.

My two sisters were shorter than me, and we were always up front in church as kids, so I never wore heels so I wouldn't look like a giant compared to them. Now I just choose not to as a rule.
