My fiance and I are close in height (I'm 5'4 and he's 5'6/5'7) so when I wear shoes with any type of heel I am taller than him and I don't think he likes it too much. I am trying to get a Valentine's day outfit together and I want to wear heels with my dress but I don't want him to be upset or bothered by it. What other shoes are flattering but don't have heels?
5" heels do not make you 5" taller. For example, when you stand on your metatarsals in a relevé position, your heels are in the same position as they would be in 5"-6" heels. yet, you are not 5"-6" taller. Platforms are the only part of the shoe that makes you that much taller (1" platforms will make you 1" taller). So if you wear 3"-4" heels you should not be taller than your fiancé; at most you should be his height. Try to wear heels that are called "single sole" because they have absolutely no platform.
