How high are the heels you wear?

Posted by Sue B. on 1/01/99 at 00:00 (002981)

You say that you find that high heels help relieve the pain.

Do you mean heels of one half to three quarters inch or do you wear something even higher than that?

I apologize for not answering sooner...I had an out of town trip last
week and have been 'catching' up since.
I wear 1' to 1-1/2 inch heels. I just bought boots last weekend at 9 West with 1-1/2 inch heels. They feel fantastic. It killed me to buy new boots as the previous pair I had I only wore 2 times but they are flats. Luckily, I gave those to my sister.

The heels definitely help. Heels take pressure off that heel spur. I do ok with walking shoes, but I notice the difference when I where heels to work. I'm not going to wear heels at home that's for sure!

Sue, how is the ballet class going? I'm working out still and am having very little problems with my heel. Of course, I'm only doing 10 minutes of stretches followed by my bike for about 15-20 minutes.

Opps, sorry about the mix up Sue! It was Mary who is taking ballet classes...
