What do you guys think is a good age to start wearing heels?

i am a 15 yr old girl, i am around 5,7 or 5,8, and people tell me i have long legs, i feel like i have average though. anyway, so i really like the heels that look like sneakers, and i think those would look cute on me :) i was thinking of starting to look into heels around the spring time this yr :) i tired about 2.5 - 3 in heels a few months ago (i was 14) but only in the store, and i felt comfy, and i walked thru out the store very good, and my mom liked them but she said i was just to young, but she said i walk good in them, and she might buy me a pair in the future. i wont go crazy, i think i will stick with the 3 in area. i looked online and a lot of girls started at ages like 12 or so which i think is crazy, but seeing how in a yr i can get my drivers licence, i think i can manage wearing shoes, lol.

so, your thoughts? if you think i am to young its ok, i just want ideas :)thanks guys :)

I say start wearing them as soon as your mom lets you and every chance you get until you can't wear them any more. I love the way heels feel, I love the way they look, but my feet and ankles can't take the pressure any more. :(

when i tired the ones in the store i loved them, and they looked perfect on me :) i was super comfy in them, i think i can take it :) plus when i was younger i used to always play with my moms heels and she had some high ones, so idk, maybe that helped? maybe not, lol

really i dont think there is no age..i have seen them young as 3,,yeah when the crazy parents buy them those barbie/ brat heels..and it really dont matter just as long as you know how to walk in them. and not bust your behind while walking..but you also have to thing about the consiquences in the long run..lot of women have alot of foot and ankle problems. i have never worn heels..in my life i am more of a penny loafer person even with the long thick heel..not spikes..lets not get heels confused with stripper heels,,,lol

When I was 12, I wore a pair of black patten leather shoes to school and felt very embarrassed by them. They looked and sounded like little girl shoes. I went home and told my mom. She took me out that evening and bought me my first pair of heels. Not super high like they make today.. But a couple inches. I appreciated that and it felt appropriate at that age.

Hi. I have a couple of feelings on this one! 1) I am absolutely impressed by your mature approach on this topic. It seems you aren't trying to grow up too fast, yet you don't want to be left behind. 15 is a tough one because your 1 yr. away, from "freedom." (17 and 20 are the other hard ones!) Enough babbling, No, I don't think you are too young at 15. With your height, I wouldn't go any higher than 21/2 at the moment. Most guys like to be taller than their "gals." Unless you want to date only basketball players, stay low. 2) On the contrary to popular belief, at this age, you Don't want to portray the flip side of high heels. Which is wanting to do what the older other girls do and are willing to put that energy out. In conclusion, you sound like you've got a good head on your shoulders, listen to your mom and be careful not to break your ankle! Good Luck and have a nice day!

When I was 14 I started wearing heals.. I think it depend where your from usually girls from Europe do wear heals earlier than girl in us. Bc we got different fashion style etc ( my opinion in general ..
15 it's a good age start wearing them :)

I don't think heels should have an age. They can look cute any age. I mean Hooker boots, or club heels, I can see putting an age on, that is one thing, but small heels that go good with a outfit isn't bad. I was never told I couldn't wear heels, although I was never into them. Heels isn't going to make you a bad influence or anything. Just don't outdo it for your age.

I'd say 13 to wear them only on special occasions, but just on a daily basis, maybe 21?

I started at 8 years old, on occasion, then wear them whenever now. Let me warn you, though, keep in mind that there is a time and place for everything, and 12 years old in stilettos at the mall is not good. I can't believe my mother let me out like that!
