HerStar, the makers of licensed team platform shoes recently debuted their Pigskin Football High Heels. While my initial reaction was “oh wow those are so cute!”, before I could click the “add to cart” button, I wondered if I would actually get any good use out of these things?

First, you have to consider the environment of these shoes. Surely anyone who goes to an actual football game can’t wear heels. While tailgating, the heel would stick in the grass, any gravel around the stadium is a “break your ankle” hazard and lord help you if you have seats inside the game that require a lot of walking and/or stairs.
Next, think of how long you are going to be on your feet.
For many females, high heels start to hurt after only a few hours of being on your feet. With a football game lasting about 3 1/2 hours you also have to factor in the few hours before the game of tailgating, walking to/from your tailgating spot to your seats and not to mention the many times you will have to get up out of your seat to cheer, grab a beer or head to the bathroom.
Spending $75 on something that end up only causing you pain at a real game doesn’t seem well worth it at first.
But they are still darn cute and definitely show off the football fan inside of you. So where could you rock them?
Away game viewings at a bar or a friend’s house would be perfectly suitable for these shoes. Maybe you can sport them at your fantasy football draft party or better yet, strap these bad boys on for a night on the town.
If you’re single, they are sure to attract the sports fan you are looking for and if you happen to be taken, chances are your guy will be pumped to have his girl decked out in football gear that’s also sexy.
Bottom line, is that these shoes are no-where near practical to wear to an actual football game but perfectly suitable to wear away from the ankle-breaking dangers of grass, gravel and stairs.
Plus, if you do decided to be “brave” and wear them to a real game, I don’t want to sit with you because all I will hear all game is “ohhhhh man my feet hurt soooooo bad”.
Do you think these shoes are practical to wear to a game? Why or why not? Let us know in the comments…

I THINK ITS ALL FASHION. JUST BEACUSE YOU CANNOT WEAR THEM TO A GAME DOESNT MEAN YOU CANNOT SPORT THEM. ME PERSONALLY I WOULD ROCK THESE HEELS WITH A NICE ALL BLACK OUTFIT. OR IF I WAS TO GO OUT TO A GAME NITE EVENT IN A BAR OR LOUNGE.
@mizlady15 I ended up buying them and rocking them out for a few nights. Most compliments on a pair of shoes I've gotten in a while. Worth it IMO
