Running in wedges like that could cause you harm!

I'll bet your tower over your meeting counterparts in those 

Not if you know how to run in them! I'm not tall so most people are still taller than me. They only raise me about 2.5 inches.

I know a woman that can run in stilettos, I can jog in wedges and almost run in some of my 4 inch boots and booties.  Oh, the skills one CAN learn to do.

The heel height is 5.5" (14cm). The quality of soft leather, of making, size perfectly choosen (uk 11.5), all is good !

Another thing that was the first time i seen, is stilettos tips. they are full metal  ! that make lot of noize when i walk, but this is indestructible ! very much better than plastic tips with metal insert we can see on lot of shoes !

There are Youtube clips on how to run in heels. Main thing is to avoid putting the heel down, as that's when you'd break an ankle. I'm sure many here have seen videos of the high heel races. Some can run at an amazing speed; you also see people who've fallen over!

I want to see someone do a triple jump in stilettos - now that would be sight to see...

They would have to be very rigid boots!

It would certainly liven up the event. Any of the Olympic events in fact. Breathe new life into sport. Imagine the spectacle of a juiced-up super-heavyweight weightlifter doing 245kgs in the clean-and-jerk while wearing specially  strengthened five-inch stilettos - seeing him lurching forward, pie-eyed, with all that iron over his head and the judges scrambling to get out of their seats....   

It would bring back an entertainment factor in sport that's been missing for a while...

More like a face plant and a quarter of a tonne worth of barbell tumbling into the front row seats....  

Be a big boost to the TV ratings...

Well, it would certainly do that... Who would get charged with murder?

Murder, shmurder...manslaughter, tops. More like reckless endangerment charges for the organisers. It would be a nice break from the usual drug-cheating cases and the TV ratings boost would more than compensate for these minor legal issues....

They look great @Peter1 - exactly your style!

Considering to wear them out?

I am considering buying these  - on sale from asos - stiletto  thigh high boot, for £13.00

Doesn't say how high the heel is, but probably a 4"

any comments?

By all means, go for it! Thigh boots are awesome, especially with short skirts!

Thanks guys. Really tempting!! 

My hesitation is that I generally don't wear skirts... and it would be such a pity (and practically speaking - not easy) to wear these under or even trousers that I usually wear ...

Well, there’s always tight jeans. They’d work well with those boots too.

This is the "problem" (at least for me) with knee or thigh high. I can't wear skirts (not interested in) to work. And skinny jeans don't work for me. Also leggings and yoga pants just wouldn't cut the mustard at work. So I have two remaining choices: put the pants over the boots or wear shorts.

Jeremy -great price almost impossible to pass up.

Platform boots I bought. Not sure of the brand, but they're made in canada. Real 70s platform boots are getting real hard to come by.

I have a similar pair that were my favorites but I need to throw them out because the cheap synthetic leather is cracking. I hope yours are made of better stuff.

Same situation here Cali. I really like Knee High boots, and have generally worn them tucks in my trousers. Recently I have acquired a couple of pairs of skinnier (still far from the true meaning of "skinny"), and I could not get my boots into them, so was "forced" to wear them above. Might be doing it more often - I quite liked it. 

Today, I just saw another pair (see below)  - more like thigh high, rather than OTK  - which might be a better fit, if I need to wear them below my trousers - http://www.asos.com/asos/asos-kendra-point-over-the-knee-boots/prd/8602171?CTARef=Saved Items Image - also on sale, for £20, which is also a pretty good price, though I think I like the other one's OTK look and fell more than this one.

I do a lot of cycling and thus have fairly slender, fit legs but I have no trouble with basic skinny jeans (I am to talking about spray-on or super skinny) and buy them from either Topman or Topshop and they work perfectly well with my OTK boots. I cannot imagine trying to stick them under bootcut jeans - that would be really difficult and uncomfortable.

Yes - I hear. My current (only) pair of OTK is a very stretchy clingy  material, so its a rael problem to fit tucked beneath. its just a pity to hide them there :cheeky:

With both these current pairs I am considering, the material is (fauxe) suede, so will most probably fit tucked.

My OTK boots are made of quite heavy, indeed luxurious, nubuck suede and there would really be no way to wear them under jeans. I am very lucky to have such nice boots.
