The Question of Heels!

I have always admired the women who can pull off  5 inch heels in fetes and keep them on all night. For me, after years of wearing 4 inch heels to fetes without problems, I suffered the worst foot pain ever at an Insomnia fete a few years ago owing to the most uncomfortable pair of heels (the pain left me unable to wear anything but flats for a week) and I have never been able to wear anything over 3 inches comfortably again.

So, the thought of wearing heeled boots or heel shoes/sandals to play mas has never entered my head even though I have seen many women doing it with ease and style, like the two ladies  pictured below:

And I have also seen masqueraders in incredulously high heels and wondered if it was easy navigating the streets of Port of Spain on 5 inch spikes! 

One of my readers sent me a question about wearing boots with heels and since I have no experience on the matter, it would be nice to have comments from you ladies who play mas in heels or boots with heels:

I was looking online for boots and I knew since the band launch that for my section I wanted to go with a thigh high boots (I'm in Xi'An). However the only ones I find have heels.

I am a bit scared I must say. I have noticed that this year many ladies chipped down the road with heels and I am not too sure if you covered the topic. I would LOVE to have their feedback:

Was it painful, uncomfortable, a bad choice for the road? Would  they recommend it? What height and size of heels (how thick)?  Would you suggest flats for Monday and heels for Tuesday? And by heels I do not mean wedges.

I would appreciate any feedback.
