Speaking of running, my co-workers claim that running with cork soles are easier then running in other soles. Does anyone have any experience with this?

I can run a little bit on short distance with my high heels. No problem with 4". It is a little bit harder with 5" and 6". I can run but not very fast. I think I would go faster by walking :). Kiss Sab

I don't really run in my heels but if I am in a rush I can move pretty fast in my 5'' boots.

Due to the sheer amount of guys' postings, rather than hedge-clip this down to nothing, I felt it more constructive to just move this train over to "For Everybody" - consider it an early Christmas present from me.

Indeed, this thread was started in 2003, long before the "No guys in the girls section" came about, so yeah, fair enough...

I only run in stiletto high heels if I absolutely have to for whatever reason.

It's hard to run in heels unless you are going to run as though your life depends on getting to a destination really fast. In a full run, the body has to lean forward a bit to compensate physically for the forward displacement. Otherwise, a runner's feet will literally run out from under them causing a loss of their base support, causing an awkwardly balanced profile, resulting in a loss of stride or a fall. A moderate attempt to run or a fast walk means the heeler is still using heels as part of the support for their up-right position lessening the spring action of the feet, which keeps the forward progress from being as fast as an all out full run. If the heels are too high, even the full run could be effectively slowed. If you can't run in your heels at their height, then you should prepare yourself in some options you can take for your safety, like: knowing you limitations, being able to remove your heels quickly so that you can run, taking martial arts training in heels and learning how to use your heels as defense mechanisms, and etc.

The only time I really ran in heels was about 5 years ago. I was at a club downtown with 2 of my girl friends. We all had on stiletto boots of some kind. As we left the club, it was pouring rain. The 3 of us made a dash for it about 2 blocks to the parking garage. When we got to the garage, my one friend couldn't walk any more (well, not to the heels, but to the shots she was doing). lol So the 2 of us had to help carry her up the stairs to the 3rd floor and get her to the car. That was quite the night!

True running no but to describe something quicker it's more hop skip and leap to get off the road due to quick cars getting too close. Even a police car 3 weeks ago (5" heels) and I'm sure they became visible in the headlights:silly:. Al

The other day the wife came to my 'man cave' workshop to make a little trouble (in the fun way) and while she ran off, I took a shorter route and headed her off at the pass so to speak with my 4" heeled western boots. Intuitive improvisation is key when we have to run in heels! LOL Charlie

Hi I can run in stiletto heels but its not a full on fast run like if I was wearing running shoes. When I run in higher heels I point my toes down , so that as I take the next step forward my toes and heel touch at the same time, rather than heel-toe, heel-toe which is what I do when I walk. I can run quite fast but I don't take long strides. I don't think I could run for a long distance like this, maybe 2 or 3 city blocks? I don't have much need to run in heels other than if its raining heavily and I want to dash across a block or a park where there are no verandahs, or if I need to run across a busy road between traffic etc... Heels weren't really made for running! Cheers Heel-Lover
