Are vertiginous high heels acceptable at work?

Ms Manners,

Do you have an opinion on women wearing high heels in the workplace that are too high for them?

I don’t really think this question only applies in the workplace, it’s for every situation where shoes are worn. I can answer this really quickly: if you can’t walk in heels, don’t wear heels.


High heels can make a woman look fantastic, and even make a corporate outfit look more professional and classy, but if you are walking top heavy because your heels are too high for your foot competency then opt for flats.


You may not think they look as good as some nice heels but trust me, it looks better than working around like a feminine T-Rex hunched over and awkwardly walking up the street.


Enjoy your new confidence and the game of etiquette.


Kind Regards,

Ms. Manners
