Tall Ladies, Heels or Flats?

May 17, 2013

zappos-naturalizer-nomaTall ladies, do you like to wear heels or flats?

In my college years I was an athlete, so the vast majority of my friends were tall, which of course also means big feet. The average height of my female friends was probably 5″11-6’0″ with an average foot size of 10-11. My friends’ preference in heel height varied though. Some lived in flats. Others proudly rocked the heels, not worrying about the extra height.

Personally, I like a bit of a heel. Even in flip flops, I usually opt for something with a bit of a wedge. Now, I can’t get on board with the 4-5″ heels. At that extreme, I get wobbly and feel like there is a sprained ankle waiting to happen. But do I love me a 3″ heel.

Check out these cute sandals from Zappos, wouldn’t they be great for summer? Can someone tell them to send me a pair in size 12? (Yes, I am finally letting go of my 11’s, thanks to my babies. Pregnancy does a number on your feet doesn’t it?)

So tell me what you prefer, heels or flats? And if heels, how high? And how tall are you?

One thought on “Tall Ladies, Heels or Flats?

    I love both! I rock the 4″ heels and I love my ballet flats. It’s not a height thing, more like an outfit/weather thing.
