No more high heels (sorry guys)

Even Sarah Jessica Parker — whose Sex and the City character was famous for her desperate addiction to shoes — had to quit her decadelong heel binge in 2013.

“For 10 or so years, I literally ran in heels. I worked 18-hour days and never took them off,” Parker told the Edit, according to the Huffington Post.

“I went to a foot doctor and he said, ‘Your foot does things it shouldn’t be able to do. That bone there … you’ve created that bone. It doesn’t belong there,'” she said.

And, as usual, no one can say it quite like Emma Thompson. The issue, for her, isn’t strictly based in common sense: It’s one of principle too.

“I’ve taken my heels off as a feminist statement really, because why do we wear them?” she asked an audience at the National Board of Review awards gala in 2014. “They’re so painful. And pointless, really. You know, I really would like to urge everyone to stop it. Just stop it. Don’t wear them anymore. You just can’t walk in them, and I’m so comfortable now.”

  1. Yep. I’ve felt this way about heels for a while. I think I own one pair that I sometimes wear to concerts. Fortunately in my world it’s not a big deal. I’m not encouraged or rewarded by wearing uncomfortable shoes, but it would be harder if I had to dress up more than casual every day!

  2. Its crazy, ever since I too had this revelation – and switched to smart/funky flat boots I just feel better in every single way – stronger, less pain, and strangely (personally) more of a woman as I stand in all of my 5″0 height and converse merrily with men not changing my height in way to reach them 😉

  3. My hubby doesn’t even like heals.
    I can’t wear them at all now anyway since I have balance problems.
    Even when I did they were shot er than most, a thicker heal, and I’m not wearing shoes that hurt. At lead not more than once, even sneakers can do that though.
    I’m addicted to Converse. Most wore them at my wedding, I wore them at the reception. I was barefoot for the wedding.
    I actually need more support than my Chucks have…they have none. So I wear them now and then noe, but I do love them.
