    Clear Heels

    I'll wear them with jeans or slacks, but not with dresses or skirts.

    Clear Heels

    How do you feel about them? Some say they are stripper shoes, but on the other hand, they go with just about anything.
  3. Peep-toe pumps, with 3" heels.
  4. I travel from Texas to Germany once or twice a year. A pair of peep-toe pumps and a pair of peep-toe slip-on flats both go with me. I wear the heels until I'm through security, then they come off and the flats come on until I'm about to land in Germany. Then the flats come off and the heels come back on.
  5. Watch the placement of the high heel in relation to the rest of the shoe. If it's under the heel of your foot (shoe on the left), it will be more stable. If it's behind the heel of your foot (shoe on the right), it will be less stable.
  6. I had a pair of these, well, almost. They were black patent leather, peep-toes, and had 6" metal tipped heels. I sure wish I had them back, or at least knew where I could find them today. The metal heels were AWESOME! People heard me coming, very attention getting, and never had to replace the rubber heel tips. I also wish I had my original Candie's back. Remember these?
  7. I like, I own a few. But they're mostly evening wear.
  8. Absolutely not! I'd stick with something more business-like; pumps, somewhere around 3" heels, closed toes, and no bright colors. Same as in the office. But if the office has an evening social, I'd definitely wear stilettos or platforms.

    They did take a bit of getting used to. After wearing heels almost daily my entire adult life, my soles were used to feeling the ground, which lacked when I started wearing platforms. The hose vs. no-hose thing is just for pumps. If the platforms are slingbacks or slides, it doesn't matter.
  10. when I was younger, I used to be able to wear 6" stilettos without platforms. At 63, those days are long over. If it's over 4", I need the platforms. I consider myself blessed that I can still wear heels.
  11. My shoes come off at the door, just as all visitors' shoes do. But even if I wore shoes in the house, I think I'd stick to flats in the kitchen.
  12. I was a flight attendant, and it was downright expected that we wear heels anytime we were in uniform and in public, or on the plane during ground operations. Once we took off and up until we were about to land, we were able to slip into flats for the flight.
  13. 5'6" barefoot, but anywhere from 5'8" to 6' with my heels on.
  14. Old thread, I know, but I just had to reply! Wearing heels (even chunky heels) is not a good idea during pregnancy. Your weight increases and your body shape and center of gravity change, which make you walk less steadily. And ligaments tend to be looser during pregnancy, which can lead to joint instability and muscle strain. Plus, a fall during pregnancy could hurt you and possibly your baby. If you do decide to wear heels, consider wearing lower and sturdier ones as your pregnancy progresses, and remember to place comfort and safety over fashion. It's only 9 months - best to stick with flats, your heels will be waiting for you afterwards!
  15. As much as I love exotic heels, they're a no-go i the office. The professional business woman will stick with 2" to 3" heels, 4"absolute max, no platform, closed toe, no bright colors. On occasion, peep--toes may be okay. Regardless of choice, they must be comfortable enough to wear all day, and walk in them all day, without having to kick them off, or slip into flats (tacky!).
