You don't have to wear heels if you don't want to, especially now as there are so many pretty flat shoes around. I wear heels because I think they're pretty, and I enjoy being an extra couple of inches taller (and it makes me look thinner, which is always nice!). Practise walking around the house, but I really don't think walking in heels is as hard as people make it out to be! If you do start thinking about stilettos, boots are a good place to start - I find them much easier, as well as more comfortable, than sandal-type shoes.
As for the boots/dress combination, it can work, it depends on your boots and your dress!
Whatever you feel comfortable and confident in will always make you look great. So if you don't want to wear heels, don't. There was a great pic in Vogue recently of Elle Macpherson wearing Havaianas and a ball gown. There's lots to choose from, go for flats or kitten heels if that's what you like and eventually, if you were up for it, you could build up to stilettos. Always up to you.
I hardly ever wear heels. i look silly and they're uncomfortable! i dont think heels are necessary ever. You can look just as nice in really pretty, dressy flat shoes, and you wont worry about falling over!
I can't see how anyone can live without heels!
i cant get high heel to fit, my feet are really wide and i have flat feet, i dont have natural arches. So even if they do fit their very unfortable to wear. I tend to wear trainers and flip flops mostly. Im trying to get some shoes, since im on placement next year and i will have interviews this year. I doubt they will have any form of a heel on, and infact dreeding going and trying shoes on, its alot of money if they cripple me.
oh dont get me wrong i do walk around in them. I brought these between the toe sandels, they felt fine in the shop really comfy. I broke them in around the house and was confident enough to wear them out, went shopping in them and because my feet swelled up i got a blister between my toe. I find as soon as i do any serious walking, my feet swell up and i get problems, no amount of walking around the shop will indicate whether that will happen.
Im also a awkward size, theres never any out on display so i have to ask to try them when i finally get them the shop assistant follows me around and you can feel the presure to hurry up and buy. Either that or she thinks im gonna walk out of the shop wearing them
I never wear high heels as I just dont like them, Id rather wear a wedge to give a bit of height if I need it. I see so many women struggling to walk in high heels, I just cant be bothered with them. Each to their own though, its just not for me!
do you walk funny in high heels? i do
