Interesting subject of course, I have not run in any of my heeled shoes or boots, however the though has crossed my mind since I wear heeled shoes and boots often and I live in the country where I do get lots of bears and other wild animals that regularly visit my house. So the thought of sprinting in heels has shown up on my radar, just have not reason to do so yet. I will look to have the picture of the bear and me in heels just for sprinting laughs. Mtnsofheels

Was just wondering if we had this subject here. Somehow when I take slow steps or if I slow down from that there is no hint of a problem but somehow if I try to speed up something is different. The idea of running in high heels has been around for a while and I even remember some annual HH race. Anyway I need some time to review this subject from the beginning.

A web search for "high heel race" finds a few events that have taken place around the world, and judging from the video clips I'd struggle to keep up with some of those runners (but it could be fun taking part even if I finished last).

Can I run in heels? Heck yea! It's just less heel-toe and more on the balls of my feet while keeping my feet extended so the heel doesn't touch the ground.

This is one that I had wondered about. Running on tiptoe as somehow the running geometry is different with high heels and the high heel geometry is different with running. For me to dash across the street with two inch heels is different from wearing my reebok princess shoes. Now there is a real nice shoe for those of us without clown feet. Another thing there was a subject titled something like another way to make money from wearing high heels. There was a US Navy officer going to graduate and was ordered to dress smartly which meant the appropriate Navy uniform high heels. But later was ordered to run to catch up or some such which resulted in an injury and disability settlement. For some reason this subject was not accepting quotes or replies. Also some place here recently I posted a little comment on the annual high heel race. This was nearly all girls who ran.
There it is I just found the place where I posted about the race. Edited by Mike Hinch

I have a hard enough time walking due to my achilles and that I jammed a heel into my other foot on accident trying to stop my car from rolling(ouch). Running is out. -Nikki

To be honest never tried running in heels and I am not going to try, I do find walking down long slops can be a problem after a while. Going down stairs can be a problem if you don't pick your heels up far enough to clear the steps, a few times I have been caught out but have not tripped as yet.

It would not be referred to as "running," but I can cover a lot of ground quickly in one heel and my crutches. Anyone for a race? E

You may be challenged in some ways, but speed is not one of them! If you'll pardon the pun, you've made great strides, and I'm proud of you, Erica! You're a great example of how people can overcome disabilities! S

I wish I could... I don't have that space to do so, if I try I might fall of my apartment windows :)

I think it is a real turn on, take a look at this ad, the girl running in red stilettos is really nice - too bad it is so brief

I could run for a short distance, but it's more like a fast shuffle than a run.

I admit that at the age of 54 I seldom run anymore let alone in heels.

How about the rest of you? Do you/can you run in your Stilettos without something unfortunate happening? :roll:


Ciao!

I could run in four-inch heels, but would probably incur some damage. I do a lot of walking/hiking, both for fun and health, but not in heels -- not exactly practical here in Colorado... :) Even on flat terrain, however, if I'm going to cover any amount of distance, it won't be in heels. I have walked to my mailbox a few times in heels... :)
