I normally wear flats when I fly, but I normally fly long distance (international). Next month, I'll be flying from Los Angeles to Seattle, and I've decided I'd like to wear heels. Does the TSA have restrictions on wearing heels? Like, heel height, or types of heels? Stillettos and cigarette heels can make pretty lethal weapons, ...

Then wear what you want. If it was important enough to ban you from wearing it, they would have said so over the phone.

no it won't be an issue, they will scan your shoes and probably look at them closely as high heels have metal pins in them.  I have travelled in high heels before and never had issues.

If there was it would have been on the site. So go ahead and wear them.

I plan to. They're nothing extreme, just peeptoes with 4" heels, but I need to look my best when I arrive.

No, I've not seen shoe restrictions other than you will need to take them off at security and they will go through the scanner. I see many women wearing heels traveling. If you can now take scissors and small pocket knives on the plane you can wear your stilettos without issue!
