Yea or nay?
Life is too short not to wear nice shoes from time to time.
I don't wear heels every day though, just mid high (6-8cm) for work and they come off the minute I come home or at the weekends when i live in flats.
I find it more that my feet hurt in heels from the running rather than my running suffers because of the high heels. Or maybe I am just old and like comfort!
It depends on the height and width of the heel.
I wouldn't recommend anyone (runner or not) to teeter around on 6 inch stilettos but mid high is fine especially if the heel is quite chunky so your heel is properly supported - boot heels for example.
I have to say though, I'd like to hear a bloke's take on the wearing of high heels
Seriously these days.... the lassies can't even walk in some of the stupid shit they put on their feet - they have to hang on to one another to get to the toilets - and that's BEFORE they have a drink..
I suffer if I wear heels for more than an hour
I find flat shoes like ballet pumps uncomfortable. I prefer a wedge heel or something chucky like a boot heel.

I wear heels from time to time, when going out. It doesn't seem to affect my running.
Mostly I wear shoes with a small heel - not totally flat. I find completely flat shoes uncomfortable.
They're the worst. When I got PF it was through wearing flat pumps.
My mum who's on the rather short side can't wear anything but heels now as it pulls on the back of her legs. She even looks for slippers with a slight heel.
That happened to my auntie, Cinders.
She wore 6 inch heels every day of her adult life and ended up with shortened tendons.
A blokes take ? Nothing nicer on a woman than stiletto heels !!
Thanks for your input 330
I wear trainers most of the time but if I'm going out out (like out out, out out out) then I always wear heels....usually 5/6 inch stilettos - I love them I haven't found any problems so far..
Flat shoes for day to day wear and high heels if going out, wearing high heels gives my calves a good workout
I think if you wear high heels a lot of the time then yes your achilles tendon does shorten and that's not good for your running. Especially when women have a shorter achilles than men anyway.
