high heels are really bad for your feet and we pay the price when we get older and then can't wear them at all. pointed toe flats are very pretty and feminine. i can't image one man that would make them selves uncomfortable to impress a woman.

Carolyn, I support you in that position. And why does anyone care whether someone else wears stockings or not. They look fine to the wearer without - obviously. And they'll continue to wear them that way.

If you could see an x-ray of the position of a foot in a four inch heel, and even worse in a taller heel, you might change your opinion. Wearing heels throws a woman's body off -balance, requiring the unfortunate wearer to lean forward with bent knees, and twist the back in an unnatural posture, leading to knee strain, back strain and other postural related difficulties, not to mention the greatly increased risk of developing severe bunions.

And if you are in heels and need to run in an emergency, you will wish you were in flats. Ladies, wear comfortable shoes. The preposterousness of heels is overwhelming.

And pantyhose just add insult to injury. If you want to be comfortable, wear neither high heels nor pantyhose.

I agree that women need to return to pantyhose, stockings or what makes them happy. Personally I cannot imagine how anyone can enjoy the feeling of their feet sticking to the insides of their shoes or rubbing their feet raw in the shoe. My husband thinks it looks more strange to see "celebs" with what looks like baby oil on their legs making them shine so much that they look unnatural, but he loves the look of a silk stocking especially with a seam up the back!

I wear pantyhose all year round if I'm wearing a dress shoe (no, I don't tan and yes, I work in an air-conditioned office in the summer, so hose are no big deal). I was always taught that going sockless was hard on shoes. While I don't wear a four inch heel, I think that as much damage to feet comes from a poorly fitted shoe as comes from a high heel.

I impressed my husband by being a scientist, not by looking like a hooker or a 50's housewife. I'll stick to my Converse and lab coat, thanks.

I want men to start wearing high heels! I will do on the day they start wearing those pain-heels too:)

Ew. Glad not everyone defines womanhood by something so shallow. And that pic is not attractive with the hose hanging out. A pair of pumps and I'd agree it looked nice although, again, not a definition of womanhood.

Meh, love my Danskos and slacks. They are comfy and classy. When I want to dress up, I'll stick with wedges (tall but don't deform my skeletal system) and bare legs--thank you very much. Sticking your lower half in a sausage-encasing is itchy, uncomfortable, and out of style (ESPECIALLY with open toed shoes--yuck). If you don't like people looking at your vericrose veins and cellulite just get a tan or do a spray on tan.

Some men do make themselves uncomfortable for women or business (ties), but it's nothing compared to the horror of pantyhose. Now, tights? Those can be cute, comfy, AND functional (they actually keep you warm).

Lisa Northrup,
Are you and your hubby, 96 years old!
Omg if your hubby likes nylons with seams, great, for his eyes only, but Please do wear them out in public.. Yuck.

Posted on Nov 16, 2010 1:28:12 PM PST
Pantyhose?? Yuck. Pantyhose with sandals?? Gag me.

I can't believe I'm responding to such a stupid post. But I guess I'm stupid, too. First of all, based on the picture submitted above, hose looks ridiculous. She's on a pier or boardwalk - LOOK AT THE BACKGROUND. It's not winter. She's wearing very cute sandals. Hose NOT needed here.
Lisa Northrup: this??? "I agree that women need to return to pantyhose, stockings or what makes them happy." This confuses me; whose side are you on? Return from what?? And, yes, a lot of men like the sheer stocking with the seam up the back........that's no surprise.

Those bubblegum pink plastic Barbie shoes are too small for her feet and they're falling apart inside. The wearer is on a pier on a nice sunny day. Pantyhose look ridiculous & out of place.
Jergen's Natural Glow gives your bod a nice natural, even-toned look in the spring, summer & fall. I love tights in the winter, but pantyhose, never.

I make it a point to never wear anything that makes me uncomfortable. I don't want shortened calf muscles and chronic pain, so I avoid high heels over 2 inches. I don't want to bother with the discomfort of razor burn (because you still have to shave to wear them) and yeast infections, so I don't wear pantyhose. Cotton leggings and comfortable shoes for the win!

I personally like pantyhose because I don't tan well, but my boyfriend doesn't like them at all.
Anyway, it is ridiculously sexist to say that you're not a woman if you don't wear pantyhose and heels. And those sandals look stupid with pantyhose.

On the rare occasions I wear a dress, I like to wear thigh highs with them- it's less uncomfortable than pantyhose and feels better than wearing nothing with your shoes. Plus, thigh high highs are sexy and make me feel attractive.

My preferences aside, I'm against women wearing them who don't want to. If you find them uncomfortable, don't wear them. If you do like them, wear them. Do what makes you feel beautiful. If you feel beautiful, others will find you more attractive. Whether or not not you wear pantyhose. Don't just try to conform to what others think is attractive.

I think it's ugly and looks sloppy and careless to have nylon-encased toes showing. They should only be worn with closed-toed shoes.

Chic and comfort. Hosiery should only be worn with closed toes shoes (peep toe is okay), but it definitely looks ridiculous and out of style with sandals. Hosiery with the seam up back is somewhat attractive, but risk of having skidmarks and rips are not too cool either. Consider the weather and occasion when opting to wear hosiery. Opened toed shoes are for the opened toed confidence. If you're insecure about your toes, then it's time for a pedicure, or just go closed toed. Wear whatever makes you feel beautiful but don't give up comfort because it'll seem unnatural and that's not sexy. Remember the number rule: Classy, not trashy.

I agree. Besides, I think a drag queen posted that. LOL...
You don't see THOSE 'girls' in stilettos 5 days a week! Maybe for a few hours, on Fri. nites at Frita's on Santa Monica Blvd, but even THEN I've seen them rip them off their feet as soon as they sit down with their Mai Tai's!!! LOL

C'mon, ladies...we need to speak up here. Such a statement is so outdated, my God, I remember as a young girl trying on my older sister's stilettos, and from then on, thinking, "who in their right mind would WEAR these things all day!!!"
I can barely get through 4 hours in 3" pumps! Much less "high" heels!
This ain't the 70's anymore, fellas. BTW, you ever see Patrick Swayze in To Wong Foo? He was phenonemol in that. In an interview, he joked, "I have so much more appreciation for women now, having to wear heels throughout the shoot, much less having to be trained in them!" Along with sitting in the makeup chair half the day...LOL
Bless your heart Patrick, as Stockard Channing said in the ending, "Vida, I don't think of you as a man. And I don't think of you as a woman. I think of you as an angel!"

Truer words could not be spoken.
R.I.P., Patrick...we love you!

Heels were first worn by men. I learned that a long time ago. They must not have been comfortable to them because they dont wear them anymore. Im not a pantyhose or high heel girl. I think it looks like a tacky barbie heel with pantyhose. It looks strange for the location (background) You dont have to wear heels to be a real woman.

Those heels look cheap and ugly and those panty hose make them look even more ridiculous. I only wear black opaque Wolford tights in late fall/winter with dresses, and that's usually with boots or closed and peep-toe heels, never with open-toe heels, but who wears those in winter anyway? Black tights are sexy and fashionable, but get real-they're only suitable for cold weather months, and tan colored tights-particularly with open toe heels in summer can be described by no better word than tacky. If you don't like your skintone, or just think you're too pale, get a tan or use some bronzer. I wouldn't be caught dead looking like the woman in this picture.

High heels are only another variation of the Chinese practice of foot binding. In China, foot binding was intended to render a woman helpless (as subject to a man's dominance) and it did indeed. It's origins were sexual in nature. (Look it up, ladies... it will make you puke!) We American women have "bitten off" on this stupid trend of wearing high heels, hook, line, and sinker. I shall agree that when I was younger, I thought high heels were sexy as I was taught from a young age my goal was to attract a man. Boo, hiss! Now, when I am older I realize that my lifestyle does not include stupid things such as high heels. I can work in my garden, change a flat tire, run anywhere I want, do my woodwork, etc. without the inhibiting attire that would prevent me from doing otherwise. As for pantyhose, some women and men need to wear them for support due to varicose veins, lymphedema, etc. ... be careful that you criticize their use without considering the circumstances. Clean, pressed, and presentable is quite good enough in my world, in the working world, and anywhere else. Now, I would challenge men to protest the wearing of ties as another stupid fashion trend which should long ago have disappeared!

Nylons/pantyhose make a woman's legs look plastic. What's wrong with a woman just looking like the way she was made instead of a freaking Barbie Doll?

For those who think that high heels are wonderful, keep in mind that they cause everything from bunions to serious back problems. Personally, I ended up needing foot surgery at age 29 for a Morton's Neuroma so I could walk normally again and be without pain....all thanks to high heels. As a result, I have no feeling in the top 1/2 of my left foot now since they removed the neuroma and the nerve it had grown onto. Now it's Birkenstocks and nothing else in the summer, and Birkenstocks and socks in winter, and my man thinks I'm sexy anyway!

If a man really thinks a woman has to look plastic and twisted by high heels to be sexy, he needs to spend a few weeks feeling what it's like to be bound and sweating by pantyhose in summer, and simply bound in winter. Not only that, but pantyhose are a MAJOR cause of yeast infections! Bad ventilation! And a man having to endure heels, in or out of the workplace? They'd scream "TORTURE" and tell women to take a flying leap if we demanded such an idiotic look in order to feel attracted to them!

Real women look nothing like the air brushed, anorexic models that we are expected to emulate and it's about time we started being proud of what we have (and don't have) and stop trying to look like the plastic dolls we were expected to play with and dream of being when we were little! Remember Barbie? She couldn't even wear flats!!!! Her feet were molded into a tippie toes stance, since all they made for her were high, high heels. And those boobs!? C'mon.
