    Let the men in the fashion world who drool over them try wearing them.

    I'm afraid I always look down (from my vantage point of 152 cm) on women in high heels.

    How very, very silly.

    High heels are stupid. I know people disagree but I believe we'll eventually look back on them the same way we now look upon women who squashed themselves into tiny corsets and fainted every five minutes as a result.

    How high is high? I draw the line at these -
    but I don't feel dressed up in flats. I just look better in a heel.

    They've come to belong to that category of bogus female MUST HAVES that include huge, expensive handbags, chocolate and cupcakes. It's belittling.

    I suppose there are male equivalents.

    Anything bigger than the heel you'd usually get on men's shoes and boots.

    I'm sure you're right, xena, but I still feel better in flats.

    Plenty of leeway then....

    I like to be able to move freely and even run if I needed to, heels make this difficult. I always wear flats or, at most, a kitten heel.

    Ta, xena. I'll wear those to my next Oscar ceremony!

    I'm quite fond of a heel, for dressing up. I make no apologies for that, and I don't think it's silly.
    They have to be mid-height though. Tottering about in massive stripper heels is... well it's not safe, for a start.

    I never wear heels. I am in love with my Red or Dead flats right now. In fact, I have 6 pairs.

    They're the ones with red soles. I love heels, but don't have the opportunity to wear them much now. 'Twas a sad day when the highest ones were recycled. I had some purple ones I particularly liked. And some multi coloured ones. All gone now!

    I look better in heels and would awful in the sandal ones.

    I like how heels make me look but my feet can't stand it any more. I get terrible cramp - very sad.

    It's women who choose to wear them, generally when appropriate.
