For women raised in the '70s, high heels can still carry a stigma; they're associated with being stupid, with just wanting to please a man. Other women find them empowering.
I empathize with women in their high heels so I'll be there in my kilt and T-shirt and I'll walk around all day just to prove that if I can wear the shoes for 36 hours then certainly our customer can wear them.
I started wearing high heels when I first worked with Mario Testino. He is tall; I had to be at his height. And I have never stopped since then.
I always wear high heels - I simply feel naked without them.
Sometimes you have to sacrifice your performance for high heels.
Tis not seasonable to call a man traitor, that has an army at his heels.
I'm more comfortable in heels than I am in sneakers.
If I went out in killer heels and full makeup, blow dry, the whole thing - anyone dressed up like that could be intimidating to men and women, really. It's so, look at me. Do you know what I mean? But I love women.
I always like to sing barefoot, but when I first started doing these dates with the symphonies, I of course thought I should clean up my act, being a Jewish girl from Long Island with a little bit of a trucker mouth. So I wore a gown and some high heels.
I love heels, I'm telling you. When I walk in flats, I get knee pain.
Some girls say they don't feel comfortable in flats, they only feel comfortable in heels; I am not one of those girls.
My style is ghetto chic. I love tacky jewelry, mega heels, high-waisted shorts, catsuits.
I enjoy just showing people other sides of me, especially everyone always sees me in my helmet and ski suit. It's nice to just show everyone me, just me in my everyday clothes or just me in high heels or just me not in my ski gear, basically.
I'm very sensitive. Because my mum was my primary emotional caregiver growing up, I found myself being pinned into dresses, darting her dresses, choosing her high heels for the evening or what to wear. I'm very much a mommy's boy.
Bono told me how to dance in high heels and he also told me about U2's Glastonbury performance and how everything that could have possibly gone wrong went wrong, including him ripping his trousers on stage. I think he was lunging and his trousers ripped! He was telling me how he had to find a new way of performing that didn't involve moving.
My mum's really short so she always wears really tall heels, and I used to steal them and now it's just a part of my everyday life.
The sneaker heels thing is a myth. They were saying, 'They're like sneakers.' No, they're like heels is what they're like. That's like saying a denim skirt is like jeans. It's not.
It is quite widely known that I like shoes. This is not something that defines me as either a woman or a politician, but it has come to define me in the eyes of the newspapers. I wore a pair of leopard-print kitten heels to a Conservative Party Conference a few years ago and the papers have continued to focus on my feet ever since.
One of the big misconceptions about me is that I walk around in mini-skirts and high heels twenty-four seven and go to the gym in heels.
I really like the look of the 1950s, lots of suburban Americana influences. I'm 5'4', so I like kitten heels occasionally because I can move around a bit easier, but pointy-toed pumps are very elongating.
Marina and the Diamonds
You won't often find me in a pair of killer heels: my heel height doesn't rise above two and a half inches, as I would just fall over!
When I'm not working, I just like to be comfortable: I love black, nothing tight, no heels, no make-up - it's nice to be able to breathe!
The danger in promiscuity is that it's always barking at your heels.
I run around my house naked with heels all the time. It's so funny.
I'm either in heels or barefoot.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
Leonardo da Vinci
