Well, I'm 6 foot 2, and I have ZERO problem wearing heels as high as four inches while out and about. Hell, by wearing women's clothes from head to toe, I already stand out, might as well stand head and shoulders over everyone----LITERALLY!Daryl wrote:I'm 6' 1" and even 2.5" heels make me notice being closer to the ground when I remove them.oldsalt1 wrote:When you are wearing a kilt or some of the more" manly type skirts sneakers and heavier shoes are fine
When you move in the direction of a more delicate type of skirt heels greatly improve the look.
I wear the shoes with the thick heel they call clunky heels. I favor the shoes by Brinley Co on amazon they are as comfortable as any shoe I have ever gotten.
The tallest I have ever been was 5 foot 6 I am at 5,5 on my way down wearing a 3 inch heel is great I can reach stuff on the top shelf
I have some shoes with a 4 inch heel and the view is much different from up there
At 5'5" it must be tempting to get some real stilts, like shoes with a 1 inch platform and a heel that adds 3 inches to that (for a total of 4 inches). I love the look of platforms myself but at my height I already hit my head on too many things.

Don't get me wrong, I like moderate heels, but at my height they do come with drawbacks (not to mention finding nice-looking styles that'll fit my large-format trotters).
