real high heels revisited

Yesterday, I mentioned a pair of shoes I was thinking about buying, but I was concerned because the shoe has a 4-3/4-inch heel! "...can I even walk in those skyscrapers?" I wondered.

Last night, I perused my shoe collection with a ruler in hand and discovered that the most comfortable high heels I own have a 4-inch heel. So, I don't think a 4-3/4-inch heel will make much of a difference.

    I read somewhere that if you stand on your toes when wearing shoes, you should be able to raise your heel at least one inch off the floor. If you can, the heels aren't too high. If you can't you're hurting your foot.

    And with girls with long feet (I wear 11W) can wear higher heels -- the angle is lower (do the math).
