I think that could be kinda dangerous. Would she have a crutch and will the crutch also have heels on? (jokes). That would be dedication to a love of heels!!!

Yes - I have. At a hotel about 10 years ago, I saw a very attractive and well-dressed young woman (about 25) with only one leg. She arrived in a wheelchair and wore a very smart black patent slingback shoe with pointed toe and stiletto heel about 5" high on her single foot. Her male companion helped her out of the chair and kept close to her as she walked confidently into a wedding reception, supported by a single crutch. Presumably, the poor girl had recently lost a leg in an accident (and had yet to receive an artificial leg) but was not going to let it spoil her day. She was certainly a headturner - brave as well as beautiful. I wonder if she carried on with heels after getting an artificial leg - Heather Mills McCartney seems to manage with her very realistic prosthetic limb.

Since there are people who can run with prostethic legs (I've seen it on TV), walking - although in high heels - shouldn't be rocket science. As for that matter, I'm sure I've seen at least one or more women with a broken leg in plaster, who wore a high-heeled shoe on the good foot and clutches to keep the balance. I think that is close to one-legged hopping. (shouldn't this thread be in For Everybody?)

There used to be a Yahoo group and a couple of web sites devoted to amputees wearing heel(s?). Try googling amputee heels and see what comes up.

I also agree with Alih... It is possible. There are many amputees who have successfully been able to wear a high heel, both in conjunction with a prosthesis which has a special foot to accomodate a heel and also as a "stand alone" with a pair of crutches. A prosthetic foot I beleive could handle a heel of about 2-3 inches in height, whereas in this picture we all know this woman is wearing a heel of approx. 6" http://img266.imageshack.us/img266/5...nchheelyc7.jpg

I have to admit that I do have an attraction for women who have lost a leg. For those who are curious about it please feel free to send me a private message and we can discuss more as it might not be relative to this exact thread.

Yes there are plenty of yahoo groups out there as well, in addition to many you tube clips that do portray a woman with one leg navigating successfully on one leg and a high heel.

Here are a few I have found.

high heel:

This one you have to foward to 4:15 to see her crutching on two different 5" heels:

I hope this puts a better perspective for those who have lost a leg and fear they cannot wear a high heel... it CAN be done.

Thanks

I suppose that, logically, it might be easier for a one-legged person supported on one or two crutches to cope with a very high heel. After all, with a little practice, much of the weight can be taken off the foot (especially with two crutches) and the shoe is then almost a passenger on the foot rather than giving it full support. (Having recently used crutches during a bout of sciatica, I soon found out how different it was to walk with them.) An amputee in a high heel can, I suggest, be compared with the woman in the very high heeled (or, more precisely, thick soled) 'chopines' worn in the 16th century, which required her to be given the support of a servant or a walking stick.

Puffer, You are correct in your thinking about crutches actually giving a woman with one leg MORE support as she navigates on a single high heel. I have had the pleasure of being involved with a woman with only one leg. Having known her before her leg loss she loved to wear classic 4-5" pumps and vowed to do so once she got her life back in order after her terrible loss. Although I was not with her during the time of her amputation I am dating her know albeit long distance, but we are able to see each other almost once a month. Getting back to the point, she has since begun to experiment a bit with her favorite pumps. she is able to get around her place and when we go out to dinner quite well although there are times where she is a bit tenative... uneven surfaces, steps, slick floors or certain types of carpets.... All in all she does well and feels that the crutches give her additional side to side support that when she had two legs and wore a pair of heels she did not have. Would she love to have her leg back.... well absolutely...... but she makes the most of her current life and tries not to look in the rearview.... Higheeluv

I'm sure there was a similar thread on this recently but I can't find it. I saw a woman on a train near Amsterdam recently who had just one leg. The other leg ended in a very nice high heeled sandal, about 3". Using crutches she moved easily off the train, down a crowded staircase and walked about half a mile. All done faster than many people with 2 legs. She was smartly dressed too. An excellent example of how to live normally despite a significant disability.

Thanks for pointing out the original thread. Could the mods please merge the 2 threads.

Heather Mills McCartney has her own Online Forum - on which the subject of wearing high heels is discussed (along with many other topics).

There is also an amputee Modelling Website here:

www.ampworld.de

...the models are simply gorgeous - and there are heels pics there also.

I'm not sure if anyone has read this post lately but today I was surfing and came across some updates to a site called "Dream-Amp" It's obviously a site that combines beauty and sexiness in addition to the women only having one leg.

Jennifer is one of the models there and despite her having one leg she is extremely attractive. To some she would be perfect because she has one leg. She has released sme new photosets and they include her wearing some very high heels. I have included links to her sample pictures for you to enjoy. Again as we stated before it might actually be easier for her to navigate on a single heel and crutches due to the extra support the crutches give her.
