I have learnt to do pretty much everything in heels now, and as I never wear lower heels than 4" I am a confirmed pro! lol! Nothing better than a guy getting and eeyful of my pink nail varnished pinkies poking out of my peep toes as I swing a leg out of the car.. Very sexy! x

Jenny G wrote:Hi everyone,
To return to the initial question, I have always driven in high heels, from just after passing my test. I don't drive long distances, and I have never felt unsafe driving in heels. I try not to wear my more expensive heels when driving as I find it wears the backs after a while.

The reason why heels can be dangerous is because they prevent a driver from being able to steady their heel on the car’s floor. By having your heel on the car floor it makes it easy for you to move your foot from the accelerator to the brake, heels make it nearly impossible to do that. Heels can also get caught in the floor carpet or mat as you are going to brake which can distract you from driving and delay your reaction time. Flip flops are also dangerous as the pedals in your car can get caught between the sole of your foot which can give you less control of the vehicle. Flip flops also have a tendency to slip off whilst driving and slide under or in between the pedals; all these situations cause distractions and can reduce your vehicle control. But I guess as long as you drive safely and are aware it isn't completely safe, it shouldn't be a problem.
