What men really think: Tall women in high heels

Turn some heads

It's a bold woman who wears 4-inch heels when she already towers over a room in bare feet. We talked with a handful of guys to get their take on fearless Amazon women in high heels.
Don't be intimidated!

As a 6'3" woman myself, I often wonder what men think when I wear high heels. As it turns out, most men love the look! So grab your stilettos and hit the town, tall women everywhere, because you're about to turn a few heads.

Feeling shy

"Tall women who wear heels are so pretty, but I definitely feel intimidated by them. I'm only 5'8", so a woman who wears high heels is going to make me stare but probably not ask her out." Joe, age 25.

"I usually think tall women who wear heels are sexy but out of my league. They look like models, and I'm just a regular guy. I probably wouldn't approach her in a bar, even if I wanted to." Martin, age 31.

"I feel some tall women wear heels to further emphasize their height. Like, 'Look, I'm taller than you,' or 'Yes, I'm over 6'0" tall in these heels.'" Matt, age 27.

Bring on the gorgeous legs!

"Tall women in high heels have legs that go on for miles. I don't care if a woman is taller than me — those legs in high heels look spectacular!" Ryan, age 35.

"I've never seen a more beautiful woman than a 6'0" co-worker at my old job. She would wear nicely fitted clothes to work, and would pair every outfit with sexy high heels. The heels made her legs look amazing. To this day, I kick myself for not asking her out. I just figured she wouldn't want to date a shorter guy." Tim, age 44.

Confidence is a turn-on

"Simply put: I think tall women in heels are confident, secure and beautiful." Jerome, age 28.

"There's nothing better than a woman who knows who she is and what she likes. I can't help but think tall women who wear high heels fall in that category, because I'm sure they field a ton of questions and comments due to their fashion choices." Samuel, age 34.

Strange sensations

"When I see a tall woman in heels, I automatically wonder what kind of super children we could make together. Yum." Zack, age 35.

"If I see a tall woman in a bar or club, I'll stare at her for most of the night, but I won't ask her to dance until we're both adequately drunk. Girls like that are intimidating." Michael, age 28.

"It's weird to make out with someone taller than me, but bring it on!" Jake, age 25.
