Has anyone ever worn 5" heels?

Are they ok with platforms? I feel like I would fall flat on my face!

Re: Has anyone ever worn 5" heels?

  • Personally I've never been a fan of platforms. Does 4 1/2ish count, it's pretty close to 5... either way I wouldn't do platforms with heels that high.

  • I haven't and I think at some point it just looks ridiculous (not sexy, hot or cute, just weird).  I think the highest I have are 4".

    Depends on the size of your foot.. if you are like me and wear 10-11's then proportionally it looks much better than it would on a size 6-7.

    I haven't seen these shoes in person yet... They very well may make me look like a stripper! It is just hard to find shoes that come in wide.

    I agree it depends on the size of the shoe and every shoe is different so it's hard to say X is too high, I just start to get a little 'eh' about super high shoes.  PIP!

  • it just sounds uncomfortable and dangerous. i don't think you should even try it.. lol.

  • i own 4.5, and i've worn 6 with a platform (my friends, not mine)... but i didn't wear them out..it was just for fun. we were taking pics around the house lol. either way..i wouldn't recommend it for walking..maybe a little bit for fun..but bring backups!

    who says you can only wear your wedding dress once?

    honeymoon biomarried bioplanning bio
    jumped ship to the new and improved nest. back to TB for baby boards.
  • I don't know that with feet my size i could swing it (they aren't long enough).  The highest i've worn is 4 or 4.5", but that's taller than i prefer and i think i look silly (i'm also short).
    The platform could make it look pretty stripper-esque, but would make the height less noticeable.

  • I have. 5" with a platform is high, but really not too bad.

    I usually prefer around 4.5". I do <3 high stilletos :)

     

  • I wear 4.5". Anything over I would be over 6 ft tall. My hubz was worried at our wedding cause I was the same heighth as him at 6 ft. lol! But if you're shorter, and they don't look bad on you, then go for it!
