I get asked this a lot. How many ladies have accepted that they are stuck wearing 'Heels? I confess I AM! I can only do flats for about 20 minutes . . . tops, before I have problems! Namaste', Anita C.

I love high heels and will always wear them when possible. I have been wearing heels for years starting with dance and tap classes. We had to stretch and loosen up before every class or performance. I currently wear 4 inch heels comfortably (I want to move to 5 inch heels) just as comfortably as if I were wearing an aerobic trainer. Have you considered stretching exercises to loosen up your calves and achilles tendon? I would just die if I had to do aerobics in 4 inch heels.

Some members seem fascinated and even turned on by the notion of "Permanent" high heeled ladies, probably through fetishy or masochistic tendancies. Personally, much as I love everything about high heels (as born out by my Story), I find it very sad that some women are stuck in high heels and can no longer do many of the healthy, fun things and activities which nature designed and equipped us for. Also donning my ultra high heels still gives me the same thrill (at the age of 59) as it did when I first inserted my foot into a high heeled shoe as a young schoolgirl. I am quite convinced that I would not get this daily thrill of going from flat to ultra-high if I were stuck in ultra-high heels all the time! Therefore, I have always been most particular to spend part of every single day walking around in flatties or bare feet, and in doing tendon and calf stretching exercises as outlined in my Story - Instalment Nos. 23, 24 and 24a. Also it is not only possible to use these exercises to prevent becoming "Pemanent". but also to re-stretch shortened tendons and to "Come down" again to flat shoes, or at least to much lower ones. Of course, achieving the latter does not prevent you from wearing ultra high heels whenever appropriate. Love, Lucy

Lucy, I couldn't have put it better. I voted 'yes' because mentally I am stuck in heels and always wear them whenever I need to look smart or even 'smartly casual'. I also love long walks in the country or the coast, and then I wear hiking boots or shoes. It is true that, because of my years of heels, I need some support, but most good hiking footwear seems to have a bit of a heel anyway. Even so, after a walk, especially if there is a lot of steep uphill, my calf muscle let me know of their presence! I simply can't be in anything flat or nearly flat for any length of time - even the mules I wear around the house have 21/2" heels and if in bare feet I usually walk on my toes. From my postings elsewhere it's no secret that I want to go ever higher, and now that I'm wearing 61/2" sometimes my 51/2" do seem amazingly low! But Lucy, you are so right, by making sure of some variety in heel height I can still get that thrill that can be had from putting on even 5" heels. Added to that, when you look in the mirror you can see how whatever outfit you are wearing is transformed by the heels into something special. Love, Anne Louise

Hello, Rob, and thank you. I think heel-height often depends on shoe size, so for me, size 8 U.K., the heels are just a fraction over 61/2". They are black patent, and are similar, if not the same as, the ones Vivienne is wearing in one of her pictures. Mine were mail-order from Bananashoes. With the warm weather I'm not wearing courts so much, but I put them on sometimes anyway, and we are due for some rainy weather soon, so I shall be wearing them again! Then it's 7" as soon as I can get some! Rather than going over old ground here, you can PM if you want more information. Anne Louise

I think its quite sad if someone wears heels so frequently that they can't walk flat footed without discomfort. Think of all the things you can't enjoy anymore, for example: walking bare foot across a sandy beach as the sun sets, going out on a nice day for a ramble in the country - its just not the same wearing stilettos :roll: I just can't see why anybody would want to be 'stuck' in heels - I suppose its because its a hard-core fetish thing.

Earlier this week, I had occasion to look up some pictures of Bettie Page, the famous high heel wearer of the 1950s, to illustrate my Story (see under the "Stories on a Heely Theme" Forum below). Whilst looking through them, I found this one which appears to suggest that Bettie herself might have become "Permanent"!:

hmm, maybe not permanent, just posed. I read another post here which suggested Bettie wasn't such an elegant walker in high heels.

Hi Emma! I only wrote that the photo appeared to suggested that Bettie "Might" have become permanent, meaning equally well that she might not. In my Story to which I referred (see below on the forum "Stories on a Heely Theme"), in Chapter 48 I had actually already mentioned that Bettie Page was reputedly not very good at walking in her mega heels, despite constantly modelling in them. Theoretically, I cannot see why it is not possible that someone like Bettie, whilst maybe not a good walker in heels, could still wear them to sufficient extent to become "permanent". Love, Lucy

Hi Everyone! I quote an excerpt from Candice's current posting on Jenny's Forum: "We both still wear more classic 5" stiletto heels to work. We were actually laughing about that the other day over lunch. As you know, current shoe fashions are getting quite nice again. While Liz and I prefer more classic heels, the styles of typically 4" stiletto heels with very long pointed toes are still very pretty. What made us laugh was the number of young women in our firms that have begun to wear high heels and are doing so as if they have discovered something new. By the way, Liz and I are still very fit at 39+ (laughing). We both run 5 kilometers every morning before work and this weekend we are going to be running a 10K marathon for charity. That's why we wonder about these women who claim to be locked in high heels; it has never happened to us." Candice is about 50 and her Story (see "Candice's Story" in "Stories on a Heely Theme") tells us that she has worn 5" heels (and over) all her adult life. And yet, like me, she believes in exercising in flatties and barefeet and sees no need at all to become "permanent" if you don't want to. I agree with her that is is unnecessary to claim to be trapped in high heels. You simply have to follow the guidelines and exercises of my Story - Chapters 23, 24, 24a and 24b. Love, Lucy

Hi all. The comments are very interesting and although I wear 5" and 5.5” where possible and most of the time, I do try to rotate to lower or flatties some times, this rotation keeps my calf’s etc supple and takes the pain off when bare footed, I have to agree with Lucy slipping back into high's again after flats always gives me a tremendous frill emphasised by the change in heights, but I think my comment would be to use a range of heights and this will allow (in my experience) you to use the right shoe for the job (like hiking boots for walking etc). But at the end of the day always slip back into your high heels to keep that glamour and frill which they give. Sarah G

I'm sort of "semi-stuck", if that makes sense, in that I can wear trainers but hard flatties become a problem after about half an hour. I have quite a high in-step anyway and I found heels alot more comfortable until I found myself wearing them all the time. I suppose its my own fault really because the minimum height is 4 - 4.5 inches but I have to say its not something I complain about as I love wearing them. Sue X

I'll confess I"m "stuck" in heels....but I'm also inclined to think that if I really wanted to get unstuck I could. It would just be a gradual process. I do like though that right now I cant even really walk to the bathroom without heels on, and it is a turn on Jen

lol... getting wet is nothing compare to not able to wash your feet which is a much bigger issue. I tried once and wore 6 inch heels for 72 hrs...even in shower (but a different pair of course). The water was trapped in between the shoe and feet during shower and not only it isn't cleaning my feet, it make it worse..much worse. After that 72 hr, I have to stop because my feet was smelling so bad! (And I wore 6 inch sandals by the way...not enclosed)

I feel like I'm kind of stuck in heels. I wear 3.5" to 4" heels to work everyday as I pretty much have to at my office in order to look professional. I also feel more elegant and confident. I also have some 3" casual heels that I wear at other times or at home. About the only time I don't wear heels is when I go to the gym, aerobics, and yoga classes. I get to stretch out my calves then, but I can't last very long flat footed. My calves, heels, and arches start to ache after just walking around for a little while in flats. I even wear heels to amusement parks when I have to walk a lot! I don't mind though. My feet are pretty much naturally in the high heel position and are much more comfortable in heels than flats. I get lots of compliments at work from men and women about my heels, my husband loves them, and I love them! I do like how I am able to go to the gym, aerobics, and yoga classes without heels though.

You people are crazy if you think being stuck with heels is exciting or romantic in any way. There's nothing nice about it. It hurts.

im probably half stuck.. outside of the house i dont wear anything but heels, but inside i go barefeet. if it wasnt for the fact that i find it weird to wear shoes inside a house then yes, i would be truly and completly stuck im positive. because its mentally more comfortable for me but phyically i could go either way i voted no.
