Exactly, by choosing our most beautiful heels (and of course the rest of our outfit) we show the host our respect on the invitation, if I know that these people are very careful on their floor I will certainly take that into account (try) not wearing my most pointed ones.
No, I don't get stand on people, not even their feet, so please don't even ask.

Hopefully it pained him.


If it was his own floor it certainly did, otherwise striking that a stranger appeals to you about the effect from your heels to the floor (of course unless it's a compliment :wink: ).
And your answer, "that he had right" :P . I would like to see his face. haha, although I consider myself capable of also giving such a response.

Certainly, even by many woman it commands respect wearing such mega-thin high stilettos , and I regularly get the question how I can walk so well, and that often for evenings.
My answer, practice a lot, keep doing it regularly, and most importantly, have self-confidence.

Like Anita says, it's a bit unusual that somebody at such a country club would be protective of the floors. Probably he was turned on by your heels. You were spot on to insult him, but maybe you could have squeezed a little submissive behaviour and metaphorically walked all over him.

On carpets and rugs heels don't leave damage, and muddy boots the more, so it depends on the floor which leaves the most damage.
Only are heels, and their possible damage to floors, more general accepted.

Unless you have a very good / strong vacuum cleaner. :lol:
But wooden floors can get sanded.

Maybe you should do a detailed inspection of the wooden floor after I have walked on it and let me know the results.


To dent, or not to dent, that's the question :roll:

And after that certainly report back the how many dents. :lol:

Yeah that could also have been the case however he seemed more to be an uptight overprotective member intolerant of young outsiders visiting and enjoying "his" club. Anyhow I did enjoy his club for hours in my sharp heels on the wood floors. It was a pretty good wedding too.

The landlord probably had tears in his eyes the next day, eh? :lol: After you finished his floor... :lol:

What a unpleasant guy... :roll: I would have intentionally left a very big damage! :!:

But, it‘s no „damage“, what muddy boots are leaving?

But sanding is a expensive, time-consuming and with much dirt related matter?

And to think that you were probably not the only one who left a lasting impression, weddings are generally occasions when people dress at their best, and for many ladies that means heels.

Maybe no permanent, but I think owners aren't happy with muddy spot on their carpet or rugs, and it is beyond that the question whether they can be removed.

But I'm afraid we're not going to agree about that your muddy boots will be sooner accepted than our heels.

That's the reason that I don't let it do very often, and when, then just sanding and finishing again, really don't have the intention to remove every dent. :lol:
And for me, most of the work is emptying the room, sanding and repainting does the company, and they work almost dust-free.

But not all women wear heels of the devil? :lol: :doh:

Probably the owner of the country club has seen that Heelgal with each step leaves a lot of damage to his floor... Yet an impossible behavior - so he may just not rent his club, right?

Most likely, like I said these were my ice pick metal heels so walking let alone intense party dancing with jumping on a wooden floor for 8 hours wasn't going to leave it in good condition. I wore those shoes because I knew they had lots of wood floors and my husband would get turned on for later but I wasn't anticipating interacting with an asshole. I was pissed off by his remarks so I definitely made an extra effort to leave deeper and additional marks in the floor in his honor, pity the landlord/manager/janitor who saw it the next day and all the permanent marks. I guess that's what happens when you let outsiders in.

Right, there were lots of stiletto wearing women there (and there was evidence of prior heel wearing women) but I think I was the only one attending with metal spike heels. :D

It would be a pity if they let the floor condition take priority over their member's hosting future weddings and special events at the club. I think it would be better to just deal with their guests hospitality and keep someone on staff repairing the floors if its that important.
