Tall women like six-feet+ who wear high heels haveeven been questioned by other tall women as to why they wear the high heels.

And of course, men have been known to ask a tall women, “Why do you wear those high heels? Aren’t you tall enough?”

Are you one of these people who wonders why some tall women wear high heels?

Let me give you a clue: for the same reasons women of “normal” height wear high heels! Can’t tall women have style too?

Can’t tall women find a pair of shoes with high heels to look as sexy or appealing as a shorter woman might find them?

Can’t tall women have a fashion sense? Can’t tall women like the same things as 5-7 or 5-4 women?

Some tall women think they’d look like clowns or ridiculous in high heels.

I hate to say this, but I’ve seen very short women wearing clodhopper high heels, and they seemed a tad off balance with their gait, and I’d be lying if I said they didn’t look pretty awkward in those high heels.

I’m not saying a short woman shouldn’t wear high heels. But ANY woman can look ridiculous in the wrong pair of shoes; and the wrong pair of shoes don’t necessarily have high heels.

Some shoes are attractive, and some are unsightly. But if you walk with good posture, and if the shoes fit comfortably, I guess there’s no such thing as a truly unsightly pair of shoes.

Certain high heeled shoes go very well with certain clothes. And any woman knows that the best-looking shoes have at least a two-inch heel, and often a three-inch heel.

The heel comes with the shoe. What are you going to do if you like the shoe? You’re going to buy it!

Why should a tall woman settle for flats?

Have you ever seen the limited variety of flats out there?

There’s only so much that can be done to flats in terms of making them stylish and providing variety.

More than ever these days, flats come in an array of styles, but the range just doesn’t compare to what you find with heeled shoes.

It’s also a known fact that heels force a woman to have better posture, and provide a lift to the calf muscle.

A six foot woman with sagging calf muscles may prefer high heels to perk up her calf muscles.

This up-lifting effect is no secret, which is why female bodybuilders and female figure competitors wear five-inch heels when they are posing on stage.

It isn’t to look taller; since all the contestants wear these high heels, the shortest women are still the shortest women in the group.

High heels lift up the calf muscle.

Flats come in all sizes  —  obviously, flats are worn by medium and short women, and if a woman likes flats because she likes flats, thinks they’re cool or cute, or suffers pain wearing high heels, that’s fine. I’m not criticizing that at all.

But a tall woman should not feel she must wear flats because some nimrod out there thinks tall women have no right to grace themselves with high heels. That’s my point.

It’s said there is no such thing as a stupid question. SURE there is: “You’re so tall; why do you wear high heels?”

A tall woman wears high heels for the same reason any woman wears high heels: style, fashion, sexiness, goes great with an outfit, and need I say more at this point?
