4 inch heels are practical for walking?

Postby barbie » Fri Feb 10, 2017 4:33 pm

I have been busy during the past two months to go out in full dress.

Today night, finally I could have a leizure time during my business trip to a nearby
city. I walked on 4-inch highheel sandals under black bootcut jeans. Also ankle high
nylon socks. Actually, I wished wearing a red miniskirt, but I gave up, as I knew my
wife and kids would say goodbye to me at home.

I walked for about an hour in downtown area. I crossed a local fish market. It is very
safe here. I like walking and touring alone in a starange city. I was satisfied as my
legs looked very sexy to my eyes. Unsolicited calls from taxi drivers and some men were
annoying, but it is OK to me as they just tried to speak to me while scrutinizing my
face. I could not sightsee the town as my toes became sore soon. I had to stop 3 times
to sit and take some rest.

With 2.5 inch, I could walk for several hours, but > 4-inch is really difficult. I
watched other women in the street. I saw just one woman wearing about 4-inch pumps. She
seemed to be back from a shopping center. She proably walked as much as me, but she was
smiling and looked fine. Pumps could be more comfortable than sandals.

I am just wondering in what circumstances women usually wear > 4-inch heels. Of
course, for formal indoor parties... But what else? Do they wear > 4-inch heels for
serious walking outdoors or at their workplaces?

Anyway, I will never wear 4 inch heels when touring a city.

Four inch heels are for cocktail parities or trips to the theater. My highest are 3
inches and even with those I bring along a pair of flats as backup shoes. Heels are so
impractical, yet so fun. I do love wearing them, but I don't do it often. You're making
me want some 4 inchers, though.

I recently saw a woman hiking up a very steep sidewalk dressed in a business suit and
wearing pretty high heels. She seemed to be doing ok. I was in awe since I have trouble
in heels on flat ground

Was that me you saw on the steep sidewalk? haha. Seriously, though, I wear heels about
98% of the time. While most of my heels are 3", I have 4-5 pair that are 4". I wear
them when they best match my outfit... to work, a party, clubbing... wherever. Most
recently was to a fair in San Francisco, where I wore them for 6 hours, and walked
about 5 miles total over the course of the event. I finally replaced them with 3" heels
after 6 hours, as we were doing a lot of standing... that's when it wears on me the
most.

I find 4 inches to high for me. It seems this summer in my country very high heals is
in. I wear 3 inch ones but only to work or going out. I prefer flats mostly as I like
to run and jump about, I tend to be a little rough on shoes.

I love heels and often shop in 5 inch plus. At two of the local malls I always see lots
of women in 4 inch heels and higher. Learnig to walk in them is the key or you will
stand out. Several times while walking through the mall I have had women in tall heels
come up to me and say, you are working those heels girl or strut your stuff and never
let anyone know you hurt! Besides for the walk your heels have to be appropiate for
your outfit. Some times a tall heel just doesn't look right.

I like heels because I think flats make my feet look big, as well as heels 2" or
under. I like 3.5 for comfort... don't really have any issues with that.
Above 2" it really depends on the shoe... I have 2 pairs of 4", one has a really
comfortable fit but a little wobbly to walk in (stilletto), and the other are open toe
sling backs with a chunky heel, which are less comfortable but less wobbly. I
also have one pair which is like 4.25", chunky heel, but they are slanted steeper and
have less room in the toes, which means I can only wear them (sitting down!) for about
45 minutes before my toes go numb. 5 if I try walking. But they're so
beautiful that I couldn't bear to return them, and maybe some day they will actually
fit...

Recently I realized that high heel boots (thigh or ankle high) can be very comfortable
even at 5-inch heels, because they can support our ankle. On the other hand, a most
difficult type to wear and walk is strap-type high heel sandals or stilettos.

I'm being radical when I go to two inches, which is about once a year, for an hour at
most.

For me, having tried 4" it has to be max. 3" for photography and 2" for actual
walking.
At 6'2" I don't exactly need heels at all. It's great for those under 6' to be
able to get up on those heels and shape the lower legs with them....that's what they
do, after all.

i don't think so. i think they are just for special ocassions. they are more for the
look, and not so much walking. just wear what you are comfortable in. six inch heels
can give you blisters, or even break your ankles.
