Now I will NOT do so on my motorcycle. I did try five inch once and it was not fun or easy to shift up in gear. Four inch heels no such problems and did it all the time. I had the opportunity to wear my Zara boots with 4.5" block heels on my 300 mile trip to see my brother. Wearing boots while driving my 5 speed felt great, no issues at all. Yes, depressing the clutch fully in heels takes a little adjustment, but that happened within the first few miles of the trip. Accelerator and brake operation seemed actually easier, more comfortable than regular trainers/shoes. I have had similar results while driving in my 4.5" Sam Edelman stiletto boots, was more concerned about scuffing up the boots though...I almost forgot I was wearing my Zara boots on this trip, so I guess I must have been comfortable....

I love driving in heels. I like the feeling of really stretching those hamstrings when pushing the clutch all the way in, which gets more extreme the higher the heels. Like walking and running, I started from 2" and worked my way up slowly, so that I would get used to the incremental height and feel comfortable and safe. Heels actually make heel-toe shifting easier. I didn't realize just how accustomed I am to driving in heels until I tried moving my car across the compound the other day with slippers on. My heel sank 3-4" inches deeper into the floorboard and I found my foot to be at a very uncomfortable angle. I race in a rallycross series on weekends and won the championship last year. I wore my cowboy boots with 3" heels every season. The only reason I'm not wearing anything higher is unrelated to driving - we have to work the course when we are not racing, and I would rather not run through the mud in my 4" heels. But driving in them is no problem: You make a good point. Lower vehicles cars pose much less of an angle between your legs and the pedals... 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
