Silliest thing you've tried to do wearing high heels?

Postby louise_heels » Mon Jul 08, 2013 5:27 pm

Have been having a rather fun chat with some other posters which was triggered off by reading this article so i thought i'd share it:

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2346107/The-worlds-stylish-surfers-Glamorous-Russian-women-waves-wearing-high-heels.html

Some Russian girls clearly had hesitation taking the the waves in their high heels :shock: I can't imagine doing that, i can't stay on a surfboard - period, but I have done more than a few silly things whilst wearing my skyscraper stilettos.

Among the litany of the silliest things i've tried to acomplish while wearing heels were completing a manual handling course at work and putting up the office Christmas decorations.

What about you? What's the silliest or craziest thing you've done (or tried to do ;-)) while wearing heels?

While at work I caught my boot heels in stair steps made of metal grating. A near industrial accident LOL. I was in a hurry what can I say.

Some years ago I went to a 3 day long music festival wearing a pair of knee high boots with 6" spiked heels. Forgot to bring an extra pair of comfortable shoes so I had to trip around in those killer heels for three long days! Looked so hot but you can't imagine the pain.

I've done horse riding. HB did a surprise trip, told me to wear jeans but forget about shoes. They were ankle boots with 0.5 inch sole, 4 inch heel. Horse company said it was ok if I could ride, which I could. The stirrup feel into position easy but it was hard to put weight on to get up, I didn't help.

Going up a narrow and high medieval church steeple with high heels and -worse- pencil skirt.

Yes I did something similar...I went straight from work to a irish music concert on St. Patty's Day wearing over the knee boots with 6" spiked heels...my feet were in pain but with some of those songs I just kinda forgot what shoes I had on :)

Just had the worst day, The boss had me work at a trade show again, I was wearing my work T-shirt, jeans and 5" stiletto heeled leather boots (all other trade shows have been inside, on concrete and seats) but not this one, it was outside on grass, no seats, started ok then by lunchtime it started to rain, walking on wet, muddy grass wearing 5"heels is not fun, had to do it for about 4 hours. result was 1 ruined pair of boots, glad to get home, very sore feet.

oh dear, sounds like a nightmare! What sort of trade show was it, what were you promoting? Wet grass and mud in such high heels must have been tiring and yukky.
