Lol guess not, thanks for the reply Louise!

is 4.5" your maximum? the 4" -4.5"- 5" range is about normal for me, 5" if i'm feeling brave lol

btw, is there a way to tell who/how many people are on.line on this site. I'm new here?

5" (120mm) is normal for me. I've experimented with higher but it's just not for me. I suppose I would need longer feet for that to work.

Me to Amanda, I can't go higher than 5" without platform. Did you have trouble when you tried to go higher?

I just found that they forced my feet forward rather than any higher. I tried for a while wearing them around the house but just didn't find it comfortable.

yes i know what you mean Amanda, and the higher the heel is the more likely that the foot can slide down the slope, especially when wearing heels with tights or stockings.

Totally Louise, I find wearing hose with strappy sandals particularly slippy and of course there's less support when ur feet do slip!

and the higher the heel the more likely your feet slip. especially with no platform sole coz the angle of the foot is much steeper and as you suggest, with a strappy sandal there is less shoe to grip!

Hmmm yes...these kind of heels are best worn at home or selectivley ...as u say u almost have to grasp the soles with your toes to get some grip

5 inchers proved a bit of a struggle getting to work yesterday. Fortunately after I arrived the events of the day took my mind off the discomfort for the most part.

Hi everyone.

I am still in progress. Nowadays I can handle 4 inches heels comfortably.

My goal is to get it in 5 inches. I think it's the perfect height in my size, but I don't rule out out higher heels ... sometimes

Hi, ladies.

Finally I wear 5 inches heels and I do so comfy. Boots, sandals & pumps.

I thought that it was the perfect height (I'm size 42 EU) but I was wrong.

Maybe it will take a year again, but I know I'll walk in 6 inches heels as if nothing had happened.

Regards,

MG

I agree with Louise wearing heels outside in winter can be tricky, I really try to avoid wearing 4 inch plus heels outside at all at this time of year.

I was in town yesterday and it was sleeting and raining. It went on too freeze glazing parts of the pavement. Getting back to the car with no one to hold onto suddeny became a daunting prospect. So, it's time for boots or at least rubber soles here now. Oh the joys of winter!

Yes, I am about the same Dianne, can do 5" at work but 4.5" is more regular.

I can walk without any problem in 5 inch heels, but if it's higher I defiantly need a platform...

5.5" is a must for evenings out, even for food shopping, makes me feel great, but after 4 or 5 hours my calfs ache a bit, but worth it. Work usally 4.5" to 5" can do all day in these.

Sarah, i voted for 5". But i agree in all that you have stated, our tastes ideaolgy are very similar. Love the feel, height and confidence when I wear.

I have 6 inchers but can only do short stints in them. But I am able to go all day in 5 inchers with no problem, so I voted for 5". :cheeky:
