How Often Do You Wear Heels?

The more you move around during your workday, the better for your health, your waistline, and your brain. One element of your outfit that can often disrupt your ability and desire to get up and move is your footwear. High heels maybe lovely to look at, but they don't exactly inspire a 10-block walk. Unfortunately, high heels don't just affect your feet, they alter the alignment of your entire body and can become a literal pain in the neck.

As you can probably tell, I mostly wear flats and comfy shoes. About once a week I don some heels and get a little fancy, which makes my little girls cheer with delight. But I am wondering about you . . .

I'd say sneakers mostly, flats with frocks but heels if I'm in a frock at night - which is rare. Mostly sneakers and flats.

I do dressy flats during weekdays b/c I walk to work. I am working on wearing more heels in my off time though!!

Pretty much everyday. I'm short & curvy--I don't have much of a choice. I also don't feel professional &/or dressed up if I'm in flats. But for running errands and just hanging out, I wear flats

I wear flats 99% of the time, 1.I have sz9 feet which is hard to find pretty heels 2.I am 5ft 9iches, and wearing heels would make me tower over most people....

I love heels and I love how they make my legs look, but I can't wear them at work. I pretty much only wear them when I go out somewhere nice or when I'm playing "dress up" in the bathroom.

Sneakers at the gym, Uggs if I'm very cold and Doc Marten boots the rest of the time. Heels and raising toddlers don't mix for me!

sundaygreen, to me heels were never about being taller, it's about making your legs look even better and being feminine.

you know girls, i found that high heels made my knees look amazing. my friends thought i photoshoped my pictures :D my calves, my knewss and my gluts - all of them looked so much better while i was wearing extremely high heels. but my balls of feet were killing me.

at least 5 days a week --- always for work! I can't wear a suit and flats ... it just doesn't feel 'right' to me!

i don't get women who don't wear heals. i wear mine 1-4 times a week, but only because i go to uni 3 times a week :) if i did go everyday then it'd be more.

Only for fancy occasions (weddings and such ;-) ). They make me feel like a woman, but they also make my lower back hurt. And I like dancing so I'd like to prevent the shortening and tightening of my calf muscles.

I'm about 50-50 flats and sneakers, but once in a while I'll wear heels when I go out and the outfit calls for it.. only happens maybe once every couple months.

Never. High heels wreck my lower back.

Almost every day. Nothing shorter than 3".

I never figured out how to walk in heels for long periods of time! There's a pair of black pumps I save for interviews and important business meetings, but until I find some nice 1~2" heels instead of the 3-4" monsters in the stores around me, I'll stick to flats. Has anyone tried ordering from Zappos in Canada?

I go through phases where I will wear them everyday and then not for a couple weeks. I live close enough to walk to the bars (but not close enough to walk in heels...) so I usually wear flat boots or cute summery sandals to go out. Also - I know this sounds weird but I have a pretty large chest and I feel uncomfortable sometimes in heels because it makes me stick my chest out even more...I'm weird I know!

at home and at the gym I'm barefoot, but anywhere else where people will see me (work, a restaurant, the mall, etc) it's 4 inchers, all the way.

My everyday boots have about a 2" heel. (Chunky, not stiletto.) Nearly all my other shoes have some sort of heel. I think my leg muscles are trained only to walk with some sort of elevation- I find walking in flats uncomfortable, especially for my knees. I don't really mind since I hate the way flat shoes look.

i used to wear heels EVERY DAY and then i broke my knee so it became a bit more painful to do it. now i rotate them into my wardrobe at LEAST 3x a week cause i just feel more girlie and my knee is starting to get stronger
