How about clopping high heels? 20-40-60 answers
YOU ASK…WE ANSWER…YOU DECIDE
Question: Dear 20-40-60,
I have noticed lately that more and more young ladies are wearing high, high heels which are attractive footwear; however, when they are walking (even on carpeted floors) it sounds like horses galloping through the office. Is there a proper way to wear high heels without creating a clopping noise?

Callie’s answer: I LOVE my high high heels! What girl doesn’t love a pair of heels?
If you can’t walk in them though, DONT BUY THEM! Use the heel, toe combination when walking. Don’t just stomp around, step on your heel first, then your toe. That sound always has a nice ring to it, “The clacker” heard in the “Devil wears Prada.”
Lillie-Beth’s answer: I think I clomp in certain heels of mine, too, and didn’t realize that it might bother people. I’d like to hear from additional readers — how big a problem is this? In doing some research, it appears that some people like the sound a heel makes and others don’t, but there are tips to keep from clomping when you walk. Here are a few, although the list isn’t comprehensive:
1) Be mindful of your steps and adjust accordingly.
2) Don’t step flat-footed by slapping your foot down onto the floor. Step heel or toe first (opinions vary on which one is quieter).
