    I'm as tall as you and don't know how to walk on heals well, because most of time I don't need any...

    PB is right about them killing you more when you're not used to them...I certainly found that to begin with. I have a couple of pairs which are really really comfortable and I could wear them all day pretty much, but they're not THE most exciting or elegant, though they're ok. And even with those, if I do literally wear them all day, I notice the balls of my feet are slightly sore at the end of the day.

    However, I have found platforms to be definitely more comfortable and walkable-in, so hopefully that will help you out. Except, word of warning: massive platforms are supposed to be one of the top causes of wrenched ankles...I think because they feel more comfortable and easier to walk in, they can lull you into a false sense of security...

    Hmm, well, so far the results are:

    1- I walked around my store for a few minutes with no mishaps.
    2- Then I stood talking to a friend and got my heel caught in a flap of display fabric and almost fell over... from a standing still perspective....

    But walking with the emphasis on the toes/ball of the foot really does work better than what I was doing... great advice!

    I'm just glad that my dad's family is all tall and the family he's marrying into is all tall. I am actually the "short" one now! I'll either be walking down with my 6'5" stepbrother or 6'3" uncle -- it's all up in the air still.

    Insolias really do work. They shift your weight back toward the heel, and therefore, you don't feel as if you are leaning forward. It offers a much-more solid strut.

    I used to work in heels for 8 hours a day lol..... , so I had to do all I could.

    This.

    Check out a vid of a runway model, as they do a super-exaggerated version of what you're supposed to do. If you watch them, the movement of their hips requires their foot to strike roughly at the ball of their foot as they walk. Like I said, you dont need to do the full-on stomp, but the general principle is the same. The ability to balance towards the front of the foot becomes more important the higher the heel is.

    Good luck, Bunny!

    Walk in heels? Are you kidding?
    I can drunkenly jog down a cobblestone walkway in heels. One foot in front of the other, just like any other shoes.

    i used to wear heels every day but since i don't as much due to work i've noticed that when i put on high ones that aren't a wedge or platform i feel totally unstable at first so i know what ya mean...but really you just get used to them.
    There can’t be any large-scale revolution until there’s a personal revolution, on an individual level. It’s got to happen inside first.

    My feet used to hurt after a full day, regardless. It helped a significant amount to wear insoles. Plus, I could wear heels a lot longer before my feet started hurting (and my back!). So, I wear them anytime I wear heels now. Why not?
