  • Past 6 inches. There is a line on 'too much heel.'

  • LOL what Dancinintherain said. .... when your toes are hanging off the ends and your knees are bent while you're trying walk. I mean, c'mon - you know when you try to take that first step if these things are too high for you..... if you really really want to wear them - then for crying out loud, Practice before you go out in public, A LOT. Some women can comfortably wear a 5 inch heel, others can't .

  • When you need a step ladder to put them on?

    For me anything over flats is pushing it. Then again, I live in Tevas, Keens and sneakers.

  • 1) The shoes look goofy, because you end up walking like goofy in

     2) People can tell your feet hurt, because you grimace every time you put weight on your foot

    3) As you are standing you look like the Leaning Tower of Pisa

  • When you cant walk properly in them...
    3 or 4 inches is good enough.. beyond that, I think it starts to look silly, like a costume piece.

  • Women's Health says anything over 2 inches should be worn in moderation (rest when worn over 4 hours). Use ice to help w/ swelling if you have been standing for a long period of time in the heels.

    This was just in this month's issue!
