So basically, I'm almost 6ft tall so I feel really self conscious wearing heels. What sort of thing could I wear clubbing/pubbing instead?
I was thinking like lace up patent flat shoes but they don't always go with a skirt or dress.
Pictures in order to recieve rep please!!

Something like these with minute heels? Or can you not wear heels at all?

Or jazzed up flats?

I know I've only got New Look ones but they're obviously just for style guidance

Any sort of heel isn't an option for me to be honest. I would love to wear really high ones but I just can't. As for the lower heels like in those first two links, I really don't like them... I deffinately need some flashy flats like those ones but not sure if I totally like those...

I've not looked at all the links posted, but wearing shoes that are fairly open across your foot will help make your legs look longer, as will shoes in a colour that blends with the colour of your tights. Anything with too many straps cutting across your foot and leg will visually cut up your legs, whereas continuity in colour will do the opposite

You could also try shiny court shoes with a really low heel - these are a bit higher than what I wanted, but they're a bit more grown up and a bit classier than ballet pumps and similar shoes generally manage. If you found something similar to those but with a teeny heel, they're not going to change your height too much, so you might feel ok wearing them.

Lol tall isn't so good when you are taller than most men with no shoes, let alone adding to it with an extra three inches of heels!

I think they are from Schuh - I'm afraid I just consulted Google Images to find something that illustrated what i was thinking.
They come in 4 colours and are just under £50, but only go up to a size 8 - I really hope I've not got your hopes up if you wear a 9 :o: If you do wear a bigger size, I can try to find something similar elsewhere

Edit: La Redoute go up to a 45, which is around a UK size 10 or 10.5. The shoes in that link seem to have a slightly higher heel and are less shiny, but they're still quite nice.

Lol I may be incredibly tall but I have suprisingly small feet for someone of my height - I'm only a 6 so that won't be a problem. Thank you for your recommendations though!
