I tend to wear wedges or heels most days, but sometimes I feel a bit out of place at baby groups in them... Is it ok to wear high shoes most of the time? Or are flats a must? (I just look so wiiiide when I wear flats...)
I would say it's really up to you, but it can't be that good for your feet to wear heels all the time? I'm only 5 ft tall but don't get on too well with heels (not practised enough maybe!) and only tend to wear them for special occasions. I would like to wear them more but I always go for my trusty adidas with jeans...
Cookoo, me too! Do you ever feel a bit overdressed in them though? I find I get used to walking in them - but yes, I'm sure they're not good for us I'm also always on the lookout for mid-height heels - not flats, not really high - but most like that are kind of frumpy
I wear wedges a lot now and I like wearing heels too, I'm 5ft 3 but it has nothing to do with my height. I'm comfortable with how tall I am and I like it. I like wearing heels when I go out though and often during the day. Sometimes I wear flats, depends on my mood.
actually I do have some wedges, quite high, and I love them but don't wear them often. Went in primark the other day with my friend and OMG! we could not believe the height of the shoes. I have wide feet which also makes it hard buying heels, I couldn't get my feet into any of the primark ones!!
I'm 5' and prefer heels (but wear flats when I can't be arsed)
I bought a pair of "star spice" sandals from Clarks (website won't let you do a link - just search in the sandals bit). They look higher in the pic than they actually are - very comfy (and hopefully not frumpy!). Just the right length to stop my jeans dragging along the ground!
