    How high do you go?

    So, I'm on the lookout for some new heels. I really like the new trend of platforms and have fallen in love with several...all with a heel height of 4+ inches. I've never had heels that high before and they will put me over 6'1". I must admit, I like the thought of being that tall and will most likely just go for it. Luckily, Hubster (who is my height without heels ) doesn't mind me being taller.

    But I wonder how others feel, both men and women. Guys, do you like your woman taller? Gals, do you like being the tall one?

    Re: How high do you go?

    For one, you know how tall or short I am. Even with a 5 inch heel I know I couldn't be taller than my hubby.

    Hypothetically speaking, I really don't like being taller than my man, but that's just me. I really don't know if he minds me being taller, I should ask him.

    I'm only 5'3", it's nice being the 'tall' one every once in a while.

    I'm 5'7'' and wear the highest heels I can find...without going "strippery". Most of my heels are around 3''. Hubby's 6'1''.....and I'm not going THAT high!

    Re: How high do you go?

    I'm 5'2" and I generally wear 3 in heels. Mr LB says he's 5'7" but somehow we appear the same height when I wear the 3 in heels ? He doesn't mind me going higher than 3in, but that it borders the "strippery" look especially if they're the platform ones . I've tried explaining that they just can't be collecting dust in my closet.

    I'm 5'7" and I usually wear 3" heels. I do have a couple pairs of 4" heels too.

    Re: How high do you go?

    I just don't wear heels. Me + heels = disaster. I can hardly walk without tripping over my own two feet as is.

    *waving* Yes! That would be me too! I haven't worn heels of any kind pretty much since high school. Also, hubby is not much taller than me, and even though it wouldn't bother me being taller, I don't think he'd like it so much.

    Re: How high do you go?

    Heels hate me. They may look cute but they are the devil! I always prefer for my boyfriend or date to be taller than me. It makes me feel smaller which I like since I'm 5'8".

    Yes! I'm the same way.

    I'm 100% klutzy and when I walk in heels it messes with my balance (I'm 5'10" so balance is pretty hard to find already!). But I have one pair of like 4.5 platform heels (they're sundress like. Woven rope around the heel and then a tan leather toe strap that looks like eyelet work.) that I wear on fancy occassions. I end up being 6'2"ish... Granted I wear them for like 10 minutes to look cute and then sit down and pray I don't fall sitting down.

    I'm 5'6" and I like about 3" heels. Hubby likes it when I get taller. He's nearly 6 foot.

    Re: How high do you go?

    Currently I go no more then 2" heels now, mostly because with my broken leg injury I don't feel too stable with most higher heels. Before I messed myself up though the sky was the limit, all I would wear were heels.

    I've found Clarks to be the best heels because they offer a lot of support and are very comfortable, they're the shoes I wear to Disneyland all the time and my feet never get tired walking around.
