I’m a religious heel wearer, just a preference. Usually 3-4 inches.
For this past winter I found an awesome pair of Clark’s boots.
Alas, summer is upon us and I need a new work shoe.
Im kind of fed up with stilettos, mostly because I walk through the city all day and within 2 weeks my heel taps are always mangled/basically sharpened to a point. Very frustrating.
I bought a pair of pumps with a tall chunky heel (figured it wouldn’t wear down as fast) but OMG they destroyed my feet. I was full of blisters and generally looked ridiculous wincing with each step.
Anybody have a tall heel that’s reasonably comfortable and durable? What’s your staple heel?

Ooooh, I wondered what a HELL wearer was. LOL! I don’t wear heals, sorry!

Haha! I clicked on the title to find out if “hell wearers” was a cool cult thing I hadn’t heard of. I don’t have much advice for you–I’m kind of hit and miss with heels. Some of my cheapest pairs are the most comfortable, and I have expensive pairs I’ve worn once and destroyed my feet. They’re going to get worn down on sidewalks no matter what, unfortunately.

lol, I think hell wearers is appropriate.
I was going to suggest clarks – they’re always my most comfortable shoes and they sell heels too – maybe the grace eva or the heavenly maze?

Clicked out of curiosity as well! Can’t imagine wearing heels daily though; even the odd night out kills me. Half of the year we have to look more professional and I wear sandals, flats, and MAYBE a medium to lower heel since I just sit at my desk. The rest of the year it’s sandals, Converse, and cute (flat or nearly) boots for winter.
You are totally crazy dude!

Naturalizer and Aerosoles are the only brands I can handle these days. Anything else destroys my feet.

megrays : I’m like you–except Fridays which are more casual, I wear 4″+ heels daily, all different styles. My shoe collection is my baby. I don’t walk to work, but like you, I get sharpened-to-a-point heels/worn taps because I’m up and down all day once I’m at work.
My go-to outside of stilletos and strappy shoes, especially for comfort, would be fashionable wedges. Today I’m wearing some cute ones from Jessica Simpson, similar to the tan ones here:

The misspelling in the title is basically how I feel about heels lol.

I can commiserate – love heels, but man they can be uncomfortable and fragile in the city. In my book, there are two types of shoes: “shoes for looking (good) and shoes for walking. With advancing age, and having to often walk through Paris, I tend to have ballerinas in my purse and quickly change when I need to walk longish distances. Then back into high-heels for the office. Good for my feet and good for my high-heels.

I know this may sound weird, but Dr. Scholls makes really cute wedges, heels, and booties now. I just found these https://www.dsw.com/en/us/product/dr.-scholls-harlin-chelsea-boot/363786?activeColor=001 and they’re super comfortable. I didn’t even realize they were Dr. Scholls until after I tried them on. There are a bunch of other really cute ones.

Back in the day my Tony Bianco 4 inch heels were my go to for weekly clubbing nights (ah, to be young and free again..) I think they are the best pair of heels I’ve ever owned – 6 years later, I still have them and on the rare occasion that I’m in them, I find that they are still as comfy as ever!
