My daughters started wearing heels around 13 but they were sensible heels.  The higher heels started at 15 or 16.

My daughter was (and is) quite tall, I was at first determined to not let her wear heels until she was 18. But I caved in at 16, which was the same time I (reluctantly) allowed her to start smoking (that's another story).

I said 16 for high heels. Low heals (wedges etc) at 13-14 is fine.

Eh, it just depends on the shoe and the occassion. I am a shoe whore so I get it. My 3 year old had a pair of shoes with a small heel on them when she was 2. *shrugs*

 It depends on what you mean by high heels. She's 12 and has worn sandals with a little heel for a wedding. Her doctor mentioned that there had been lots of injuries to little girls who wear them, so we didn't allow them until recently. I think 15-16 will be the time for higher heels. We'll see.

My oldest got her first pair of heels when she turned 12.

All I know is that I saw toddler shoes with heels the other day, and I nearly lost my mind at the store.
