Is it style or is it pure torture?
The way some of these shoe designs are going for women; it makes me wonder if its style or is it just another form of torture. Of course, with my back problems; I can't wear shoes like these but I can help but wonder what the long term effects will be for those who can?
I used to wear high platforms all the time. Now that I am older, I can no longer. For older women, they are torture. But they look good.
I have never been able to wear heels. I'm not really one to wear uncomfortable clothes in general. Sure, they might look nice, but if I'm miserable in them it kind of defeats the purpose. Nice shoes + unhappy lady = not attractive. I am much more attractive when I'm having fun/comfortable/enjoying myself!
I'm also fairly tall to begin with and I feel like a baby giraffe when I wear any shoes with more than a very slight heel.
That said, I know girls who wear very uncomfortable looking heels all the time and don't seem to be terribly affected by it.
I love shoes. These are really not that bad. They look scary but they are probably comfortable for those who are used to wearing them. I have found that the thicker the platform sole, the more comfortable the shoe. But if the heel gets too high (over 5 inches) then you feel like you're going to topple over. Also, the thickness at the top of the heel helps with balance. I don't wear high heels as much anymore but I will wear them for special occasions. The rubber bottoms with a little platform make a 5 inch heel more comfortable than it looks.

I lost my job about 6 months ago, and I'm thinking about opening a local shoe store and featuring comfort footwear. Anyone willing to share your favorite brands or trends you've noticed in footwear?

I used to love wearing high heels, but now my feet won't let me. Ow! they say.But I don't want to wear shoes like my teachers wore in the 1950s. I'm not old yet. In fact, I'm a Baby Boomer. ...

No. I seem to have very weak ankles. Have broken an ankle bone at least once, torn ligaments and had bad sprains-- even when wearing sensible shoes. At this point in my life, I wouldn't dare.
