Do You Wear High Heels?

An outfit often isn't complete without a stunning pair of high heels. They're feminine, fun, and sexy, but the dazzle they add to your ensemble also comes with a price. High heels are linked to many health issues including shortened Achilles tendons and calf muscles, hammertoes, bunions, corns, ingrown toenails, posture issues, back and neck pain.

This doesn't stop me from donning a pair every so often, but heels are definitely not a regular thing for me. What about you?

I do not like wearing heels. Even when I wear dresses I tend to wear flip-flops with them.

I am to much of a cluts to wear them alot, plus to active for the most part so I don't wear them often & when I do they are usually short heels.

I voted for the second option. I wear them a few times a week, but it's not just on weekends. They make your legs look nicer, so if I wear a skirt or dress I normally wear heels, but in pants I wear flats if I can.

i've never heard a guy say a girl looks better in heels and i never think i look better - but i wear them every day for work (i do feel more professional in them) and sometimes when going out - depending if we're going locally or will be walking a ton

I mix it up between ballet flats and heels for work. It depends on the length of my pants and if they need a heel or not. Even when I do wear a heel, they are usually 1-2 inches high and I buy brands that are really padded so they're more comfortable to wear all day. I usually kick my shoes off under my desk anyways if I'm sitting all day.Occassionally I go out and I love to rock a 3 or 4 inch heel to give me some height. It's not often, like once ever month or two, so I can handle it for just a few hours then. Sometimes a high-heeled shoe is so cute - I can't help myself.

I used to wear 3+ inch heels everyday to work and out and now I'm paying for it with terrible feet. I miss them but not the pain.

I wear low heels almost every day. I very rarely wear anything higher than two inches. High heels make my feet swell for some reason.
