Yes, Mike at 6'5" in your bare feet I thought you could do with a lift!

How did you get back from your flight of a few months ago?

It went great. Today I'm headed to Hilton Head Island for the week. Nothing but skirts and dresses packed!

And yes, those heels will come in handy for changing light bulbs!! :lol:

If I am wearing heels, I don’t wear anything lower than 5 inches. Most of my heels are between 6 and 7 inches but with platforms, thus an effective heel height between 4 and 4.5 inch which is comfortable. Once you get used to the height, you don’t really think about it. I do think skirts and heels are an awesome combination!

I'm the polar opposite. I rarely wear anything over three inches on my outings these days. My idea of comfort since I spend a good amount of time walking and standing comes from wearing lower heights and I believe they're stylish in their own right.
I don't want to LOOK like a woman, I just want to DRESS like a woman.

I think heels work well with a skirt because they elongate the leg and make the foot look smaller.

I don't wear over 5 inches at all much - I wear 4's a great deal - 5's or the 130mm heel particularly are as high as I can go without a platform - but thats for special events - not heels I would want to spend hours on my feet in.

I think it depends on your foot size as to what you find comfortable etc. There are so many variations of style of heel, height thereof, colours, straps etc that there are shoes to suit everyone! Thats what I appreciate about womens shoes so much.

Ironically I fond lower heels more treacherous than higher ones - I have had many more near accidents/falls in 1-2 inch heels than in 4-5 inches. By accidents I mean just sliding on a perfectly flat smooth floor while walking along - thats the most common issue I have on slick floors like dept stores - and I always have more near accidents in lower heels.

I have worn heels for years with skirts - the most important thing is to have shoes that you like - and you are comfortable in - comfortable physically and also comfortable in that you like being looked at in them - with both these attributes sorted you have a winning shoe. Often the shoes one might aspire to wear are not comfortable on all levels - and that is a common issue with choosing heels.
