Amputee in HH

21 posts in this topic

I have not posted in a long time. I am a recent leg amputee that loves to wear a HH. I have found the height of the heel has very little effect on my ability to crutch and I do get a lot of attention from the opposite sex. Am I the only amputee here.

Hi Barbara, Iit is much easier to crutch wearing a HH than walking in HH. I wore HH before I was an amputee so I have experience both ways. I normally wear a 5" heel, but I do have a Femme 12 which has an 8" heel. That is for special occasions only.

I am not an amputee but it's good to see you determination and spirit towards you passion of wearing HH. I really didn't know that walking in crutches could make HH walking easier, I suppose it has something to do with balance. Anyway, you go girl!

You definitely score points for determination! It strikes me as amazing that you could go through the loss of a limb and still keep yourself going. You're inspiring and have just brightened my day by reminding me that there really are strong people out there. Thank you.

Life goes on. You make the best of what you have. I have always loved to wear HH and I see no reason not to continue. If you think guys like HH they really like someone on crutches wearing a HH.

Is that an above knee or below knee amputation? If you still have your knee, maybe using prosthetics isn't so bad and you get to wear heels in prosthetics....now thats call skills

I am new to this group and surprised to see this thread but very glad to see it. I too am an amputee having lost my right leg to cancer 5 years ago. I love my heels and have been wearing them well over 20 years and still do while crutching from place to place and even at work. I agree with Franie, I think we have an advantage and they are much easier to get around in with crutches and one leg. I know when they started me on Occupational Therapy after removing my leg they kept trying to find out why my foot and leg hurt so bad. Essentially they tried to make me learn on flats and kept telling me that my leg was just not used to the new balance and new center of gravity. Actually All I need to do was let my crutches out a notch and put my heel back on, I was fine. Deidra

In the meantime you can send them on my mailbox: **e-mail address removed**

Deidra I've sent you private message
