Did they say it in an offensive manner? I’m not girly at all so when I wore 5 inch heels to Homecoming one year in HS everyone joked about my “hooker heels” but it was more a jab at my lack of girlyness (and grace on said heels) than anything, wasn’t meant offensively. I think your shoes are cute though!

@aprose:  I don’t think they are totally stripper-y, but I am guessing she is saying that because of the patent platform part.  If that was matte I’d say they’d be better.

Those are NOT stripper shoes!  They are, however, super cute!

Um… no. These are stripper shoes.

 

Those are classy and sexy.

Are you upset that she said that, or asking us if we think the shoes are acceptable?

I personally wouldn’t wear them to my wedding, and I *might* raise my eyebrows if I saw a bride wearing them…so you should be glad that you have a friend honest enough to clue you in to what some people *might* think.

As a fellow heel and platform lover, my rule is: as long as there’s no dollar bills of golfish swimming in the heels, you’re good. 

Wear them and look fab 🙂

I can see where your friend would say this (because of the platform), but it’s not like they are 6 inch lucite heels. They are “racier” than some people may wear, but they are by no means inappropriate. If you love them and feel comfortable in them, wear them!

I wore 5inch black and pink Steve Madden pumps (I’m trying to post the pic).  One person’s stripper heel is another bride’s ability to kiss her hubby without standing on a box.  And they were cute.  So there.  😉

It’s the style, 4-5 inch heel with patent platform, that’s just what they’re known as.  I like them, I think they’re cute and totally in style right now, that’s just what they’ve been nicknamed (at least around here). I wouldn’t be offended and I think you should wear them if you’re comfortable walking in them (I can’t wear more than 3 inches without tripping all over the place).

I would absolutely wear those and I don’t consider them racy at all. I find most of what people think is classy as boring though so my style may be skewed.

Haha I don’t think they are stripper shoes, those would be the clear platforms that light up lol. You’re shoes are super cute and spunky! I like the pattern and colors too. Although on a funny side note my dad always calls high heels, like 4 or more inches, come f*ck me pumps which I think is freaking hilarious.
