I’m a heels girl, always have been. It’s not that I don’t LIKE flats – on the contrary, I have quite the collection of them, and have been wearing them more than ever recently. As much as I love my heels, I’m no longer the type to insist on wearing them at all times, regardless of whether or not they’re appropriate (I say “no longer”: when I was a little bit younger, it was a whole different story!), so I try to make sure my heel height is right for the occasion, for the type of ground I’ll be walking over, and for the outfit I’ll be wearing.
When you get right down to it, however, my heart has always belonged to heels: the higher, the better. I will wear flats – or lower heels – when I have to, but while I don’t dislike them, they’d never be my first choice of footwear, and I don’t get excited by them, the way I do over an amazing pair of heels.
While some people share this love, however, I know there are just as many who are completely perplexed by it, and who can’t for the life of themselves understand the appeal of shoes that force you to effectively balance on your tip-toes all day long.
I think the reasons WHY I love high heels is another topic for another post, but today I wanted to take a quick straw poll and see how everyone else feels. Are you a heels girls, or a flats lover? Are you never seen without your trusty stilettos, or are you never seen WITH them? Maybe you fall somewhere in between, mixing the two different styles, or opting for mid-height heels instead. Whatever your preferred shoe style, I’d love to hear about it, so place your vote in the poll below, and feel free to leave a comment too, if you’d like to say a little more about your choice!
