Lucy, I couldn't have put it better. I voted 'yes' because mentally I am stuck in heels and always wear them whenever I need to look smart or even 'smartly casual'. I also love long walks in the country or the coast, and then I wear hiking boots or shoes. It is true that, because of my years of heels, I need some support, but most good hiking footwear seems to have a bit of a heel anyway. Even so, after a walk, especially if there is a lot of steep uphill, my calf muscle let me know of their presence! I simply can't be in anything flat or nearly flat for any length of time - even the mules I wear around the house have 21/2" heels and if in bare feet I usually walk on my toes. From my postings elsewhere it's no secret that I want to go ever higher, and now that I'm wearing 61/2" sometimes my 51/2" do seem amazingly low! But Lucy, you are so right, by making sure of some variety in heel height I can still get that thrill that can be had from putting on even 5" heels. Added to that, when you look in the mirror you can see how whatever outfit you are wearing is transformed by the heels into something special.
I agree with you. I also use at least 5 cm heels, even at home. But I have no pair higher than 12 centimeter.
