Know what suits you. I would never wear brown, because it just doesn't work with my pale skin and dark hair. Also I wouldn't wear flats at night, because I love heels. -Leigh Lezark

I plan my golf outfits for the tournaments, I recycle some for the practice rounds, but I always have new ideas for my golf attire, and I like to dress nice after the rounds, so I have to bring all my heels. It's terrible. The worst part about being on tour is living out of a suitcase. -Paula Creamer

Although most Americans apparently loathe inflation, Yale economists have argued that a little inflation may be necessary to grease the wheels of the labor market and enable efficiency-enhancing changes in relative pay to occur without requiring nominal wage cuts by workers. -Janet Yellen

I have high heels in my bags if I need them for a shoot. But I like sneakers. I like being comfortable. I like to sit on the floor with my team and work. I don't like to sit in fancy chairs. It's really important to the culture of my company that people understand who they're working for. -Bobbi Brown

Do you know how hard it is to play a character where you're always in heels? Oh, my goodness! -Serinda Swan

I really like the look of the 1950s, lots of suburban Americana influences. I'm 5'4', so I like kitten heels occasionally because I can move around a bit easier, but pointy-toed pumps are very elongating. -Marina and the Diamonds

I often look at women who wear great jeans and high heels and nice little T-shirts wandering around the city, and I think, 'I should make more of an effort. I should look like that.' But then I think, 'They can't be happy in those heels.' -Kate Winslet

I was born in platform heels. I actually always fall down when I'm wearing flip-flops. -Eva Longoria

I was raised in a family where vulnerability was barely tolerated: no training wheels on our bicycles, no goggles in the pool, just get it done. And so I grew up not only with discomfort about my own vulnerability, I didn't care for it in other people either. -Brene Brown

Our family room, where we live, is about togetherness and ease. Nothing in my house is too formal. There are no coasters on tables; the kids can eat Popsicles on the couch if they want to. I let them ride these little cycles we got for them when they were 3 that have rubber wheels and no pedals. -Cindy Crawford

Some tell me I'll break my ankle on my high heels – but I live in them. I'm known for doing speed dashes and leaps and bounds in heels. No problem. -Kylie Bax

If I had my way, I'd wear jewelry, a great pair of heels and nothing else. -Jada Pinkett Smith

I always wear high heels – I simply feel naked without them. -Donatella Versace

My family originally lived in Brooklyn. Our first apartment was a little place above my father and uncle's hardware store in Coney Island. Now, don't get the impression that we were surrounded by merry-go-rounds, roller coasters and Ferris wheels. Nope, this was a little side street. -Gilbert Gottfried

I'm such a huge fan of fan fiction, to me it's a great way for readers to become writers. It's like putting the training wheels on for writing. -Hugh Howey

Whatever I feel comfortable in is usually what I'll wear. I go to different events and premieres and walk the red carpet… those things are awkward enough on their own. You don't want to be pulling up a top all night. I will sacrifice foot comfort though. I love high heels. -Mandy Moore

The more moral the people are in their business dealings, the less paperwork you need, the more handshakes you can have, the more the wheels of capitalism work better because there's trust in the marketplace. Business ethics is not a joke. And, in fact, I think most businesses that I've dealt with encourage exactly that type of behavior. -Rick Santorum

I have to be honest, I don't pay as much attention to women's fashion, but being a sneaker head, I do like it when a girl can rock a nice pair of sneakers. Not every girl can do it. Every girl looks good in heels – that's a given – but not every girl can look good in fresh kicks. -Bryan Greenberg

A lot of female comedians will go up there in a sweatshirt and Converses, trying to dress themselves down, because it is sort of a boy's club. I'll go up in my heels. I like that people don't think I'll be funny. I'll take that on. I don't do standup comedy – I do standup and I do comedy, but I don't go up there and do jokes. -Carly Craig

Men in high heels? That's a prosthesis. But I sympathise. Women have these giant heels. They get taller and taller. The men need help. But a man in heels is ridiculous. -Christian Louboutin

I'd already decided I wanted to design shoes after I saw a sign in the Museum of African and Oceanic Art forbidding high heels. Well, who could resist? -Christian Louboutin

One moves more slowly in heels. Walking fast is neither sexy nor engaging. Nobody notices the people who race around. If you're walking in heels, you've got time. It's much more attractive. -Christian Louboutin

People say I am the king of painful shoes. I don't want to create painful shoes, but it is not my job to create something comfortable. I try to make high heels as comfortable as they can be, but my priority is design, beauty and sexiness. I'm not against them, but comfort is not my focus. -Christian Louboutin

The higher the better. It's more about an attitude. High heels empower women in a way. -Christian Louboutin

The highest heels I do are six-inch heels – but mostly only dancers can wear them, since they are used to being on point in ballet shoes. Their feet are arched. -Christian Louboutin

I can tell women's confidence levels rise when they wear heels. -Eric Mabius

If a woman is bed-heady and it doesn't look put on, it's pretty sexy. But when a woman is wearing a really smart dress with great heels and her hair is pulled back, that's terribly sexy too – like an Audrey Hepburn kind of thing. -Eric Mabius

I think a lot of people know me for just wearing cut-off denim shorts, an oversized white T-shirt with a pair of high-heels. I usually do wear basic stuff. Jeans and a white T is my go-to look. -Erin Wasson

I'm not a short person; I'm 5'10 and I was wearing heels, and I felt like a tiny little creature next to Shaquille O'Neal. -Erinn Hayes

I used to write on my resume that I was shorter than I was because I thought it would inhibit my roles, and as soon as I embraced that I am a tall female, I started getting really fantastic roles and really didn't even worry about wearing heels. -Heather Doerksen

I believe time wounds all heels. -John Lennon

One of the biggest misconceptions that a woman has is that a man has to accept her the way she is. No, we don't. I don't know who told you that. We like the bright and shiny. If you stop wearing the makeup, stop putting on nail polish, stop wearing high heels, you'll lose us. -Steve Harvey

Cole Haan is like high fashion Nike, so you feel like you're wearing Nike shoes, but you're wearing heels. Every time I'm on a red carpet, I always either wear Cole Haan or Stuart Weitzman. You end up having to walk around all night in these heels and you want to be comfortable and not look like you're in pain. It definitely shows in pictures. -Nina Dobrev

I don't wear heels. I'm all about flats from Chanel and wedges. I love my Gucci wedge boots. -Jourdan Dunn

As a little girl, I was athletic: 'Oh, mom, look at me. I can do cartwheels.' I was one of those annoying kids. I craved the spotlight. I had the feeling since I was little that the stage was my home. -Ashley Leggat

I like my heels as high as we can get them. I show skin where it is appropriate. -Ashley Leggat

There is a heel that is too high to walk in, certainly. But who cares? You don't have to walk in high heels. -Christian Louboutin

For women raised in the '70s, high heels can still carry a stigma; they're associated with being stupid, with just wanting to please a man. Other women find them empowering. -Christian Louboutin

The highest heels I do are six-inch heels – but mostly only dancers can wear them, since they are used to being on point in ballet shoes. -Christian Louboutin

High heels empower women in a way. -Christian Louboutin

I like sundresses with cowboy boots, little shorts with big wedge heels and a big piece of turquoise. I also love classic, Old Hollywood romantic styles. I'm 'country girl meets city girl' circa 1930. -Kirsten Prout

I couldn't care less about walking down the red carpet in a pair of heels and a posh frock. I'd rather be in my pyjamas at home. -Sophia Myles

My style is ghetto chic. I love tacky jewelry, mega heels, high-waisted shorts, catsuits. -Jessie J

To look long and lean, wear a wide-leg trouser with high heels. -Rebecca Gayheart

Appearing in 'Legally Blonde' has helped me find my inner girl, although at the beginning the director was constantly telling me off for sitting like a boy, with my legs apart, while wearing a cocktail dress and heels! -Sheridan Smith

The wheels are spinning in my head all the time. -Justin Berfield

Dancing in high heels is kind of tough. I learn the dances without the heels, and then we add them. We just practice, and I get used to it. My feet hurt really badly at the end of the shows, but it's fun. While it's happening it's fun. I feel tall. -Ariana Grande

I'm the girl who's like, 'Why wear heels when I can wear tennis shoes and be comfortable?' I've always been the girl who's like, 'Let's go play basketball.' -Kyla Pratt

I'm liking the different types of tights that you can wear with high heels. There are lots of different colors and textures. -Lindsay Price

I collect Hot Wheels. I collect glass. I collect coins. And I collect cards. -Nolan Gould

I think, aesthetically, car design is so interesting – the dashboards, the steering wheels, and the beauty of the mechanics. I don't know how any of it works, I don't want to know, but it's inspirational. -Paloma Picasso

I was very young when I saw 'Gone With the Wind,' but I fell in love with Clark Gable. And when I got to work with him, I couldn't believe it. I still had a crush on him. He was quite an old man by then; he must have seen that I was head over heels, even though I was married. -Carroll Baker

There's a real power in heels and a good dress. -Talulah Riley

I'm 5'11, so when I wear heels, it's definitely a really good view that I have. I'm, like, 6'2 when I wear heels, so I tend to wear cowboy boots a lot. -Taylor Swift

Feeling I'd scarcely arrived at a style, I now find I'm near the end of it. I'm not quite sure what Late Style means except that it's some sort of licence, a permit for ageing practitioners to kick their heels up. -Alan Bennett

I throw on a dress and heels and I'm good to go. -Sue Naegle

The brutal truth is, we're scarcely 'educating' children at all. Even if you overlook the guilt, fear, bigotry, and dangerous anti-intellectual flapdoodle being funneled into young brains by schools on the religious right, what we're doing is training kids to be cogs in the wheels of commerce. -Tom Robbins

I like to get a rise out of my mom with what I wear – I always go for the tallest heels or something super trendy. -Christa B. Allen

It's unarguable that the right shoes can really add elegance to an outfit and to the person who's wearing them. Take a pair of high heels, for instance. Suddenly, you're looking taller, shoulders back, body curved. -Kareena Kapoor Khan

When I'm wearing too-high heels and swaying my hips, I do that Sharon Stone kind of thing – she has the sexiest walk, a New York cool thing that throws you back. -Queen Latifah

My style is not that big. I wear heels, tight pants, and I wear diamonds. -Donatella Versace

I'm quite British; I've got big, flat feet, and I can't wear heels. I've got very, very pale Celtic skin, so my legs are always a frightening blue color. So when you take out clothes that reveal your legs, shoes that have any kind of heel, no shop will actually take my money. -Caitlin Moran

If it wasn't because of my high heels, I would still be in Coatzacoalcos with 10 children. -Salma Hayek

I'm used to a lot of love scenes. I'm used to something that requires me to kick up my heels and wink-wink, flirt-flirt with a twirl of my skirt. -Sarah Shahi

I'm really excited for people to be able to see what else I can do besides high heels and magic powers. -Serinda Swan

I can never tell what I'm gonna wear. I kind of just put on whatever feels right. Sometimes that's Converse and a T-shirt, sometimes it's Givenchy heels and leather pants. -Willow Smith

It's hard enough for women to walk on high heels. And I'm on stilts! -Aimee Mullins

My style offstage is so different from onstage. I love a pair of sexy heels with jeans, a nice jacket, or a little dress. -Beyonce Knowles

Life's too short to wear high heels. -Eva Green

I love heels! I especially like heels by Nicholas Kirkwood, Jimmy Choo and Moschino. -Joanne Froggatt

Barbie ruined my life! It's a really bad image for women. For a long time I thought I was deformed – because my heels didn't touch the ground. I was walking around on tiptoes. What's up with that? I think that it's a bad thing for a woman to try to emulate. -Rita Rudner

I wear a lot of black, knitwear, skinny jeans and very high heels. My mum used to work for a fashion designer making knitwear, so she knits me lots of chunky scarves, hats and gloves, which I love. -Katie McGrath

I volunteered at Meals on Wheels, which is a place where you go and deliver healthy meals to people who are more homebound. I did that, and I had so much fun doing it, and I'm definitely planning on doing it again. -Kendall Jenner

People will dig their heels in and fight for the things they love and against the things they hate. -Matt Berninger

I pretty much only wear high heels. -Toks Olagundoye

I imagine how hard it might be to walk down the runway. Me in heels is, like, deforesting the forest, knocking trees, completely 'timber!' -Ireland Baldwin

What I wear is everything – from how I carry my hair to what I'm wearing on my feet. I have to feel comfortable on stage, so I like to wear things that have room. My mood changes a lot, so sometimes I wear 6-inch heels, and other times I'll perform in bare feet. -Laura Mvula

I don't like to be too submissive in the way I dress. I like quite boyish things, so I hardly ever wear high heels. -Bat for Lashes

I wear high heels for long legs. -Georgia May Jagger

I honestly find it easier to dance about in heels than I do to walk down the street in them. -Alison Goldfrapp

I am the living death, a Memorial Day on wheels. I am your Yankee Doodle Dandy, your John Wayne come home, your Fourth of July firecracker exploding in the grave. -Ron Kovic

I build engines and attach wheels to them. -Enzo Ferrari

I started wearing high heels when I first worked with Mario Testino. He is tall; I had to be at his height. And I have never stopped since then. -Carine Roitfeld

It's true I always like to mix femininity and something a bit masculine. It's the reason I love skirts with high heels and tights, and no handbag because I love having my hands in my pockets. -Carine Roitfeld

I have good legs, so I prefer my skirt lengths and my high heels. It's like my uniform. -Carine Roitfeld

I don't like kitten heels. I just don't think they are an attractive shoe because they always look so stumpy. And I would never wear cowboy boots: a pointy toe and little heel is just not my thing. -Jessica Hart

If you've got the body and the chutzpah, a pencil skirt is so sexy on older women. Look for ones that fall just below the knee. Think 1940s, cinched-in jackets – imagine you are Lauren Bacall on a date with Humphrey Bogart and you just absolutely have to wear very high heels. -Twiggy

I love flat shoes, more so than heels. One of my obsessions is men's co-respondent lace-ups. -Twiggy

You won't often find me in a pair of killer heels: my heel height doesn't rise above two and a half inches, as I would just fall over! -Twiggy

I noticed, when I taught elementary school, how true the squeaky wheel thing is, and how endearing squeaky wheels can be! Because when you're being a squeaky wheel, you're also really letting people know who you are. -Aimee Bender

Despite my love affair with skyscraper heels, luckily for my feet I rarely wear them – preferring, instead, the comfort and child-handling practicalities of a pair of trainers. -Sheherazade Goldsmith

People get into debt head over heels because banks make it so easy to do so. Then the banks come along and act like these people who can't or won't pay their bills are the dregs of society. -Jonathan Raymond

Man, your head is haunted; you have wheels in your head! You imagine great things, and depict to yourself a whole world of gods that has an existence for you, a spirit-realm to which you suppose yourself to be called, an ideal that beckons to you. You have a fixed idea! -Max Stirner

Shoes? I have loved them all: '60s pumps; white Courreges ankle boots; platform soles from the first time around, in the '70s; more boots – ankle, calf, and knee-high; 1980s sneakers; pin heels and wedges; Mary Janes and stilettos. -Suzy Menkes

If I'm DJing a show, I will normally wear the designer I'm DJing for; if I'm DJing a party, I will most likely be wearing very high heels. -Chelsea Leyland

Since having kids, I am more careful about saving rather than splurging. I used to spend all my money on trainers and high heels that I couldn't walk in. -Jasmine Guinness

High heels are like a beauty lift. In a flat, you can feel beautiful, but a stiletto changes your mood, how you move – like a wild, beautiful animal. The idea was always to follow a woman's wardrobe, her desires. -Giuseppe Zanotti

Already 2008 has proved a tumultuous year in terms of global perceptions of China, and there are still 59 days to go until the Beijing Olympics. The tragedy of the Sichuan earthquake followed hard on the heels of the riots in Tibet and the demonstrations surrounding the Olympic torch relay. -Martin Jacques

I have that love for music, when you are finding either old gems that you never heard or newer stuff that perks your ear. It keeps you trying to look for new stuff to write about it. You don't spin your wheels. I take that same approach to music and books. -Corey Taylor

At my funeral, if one said, 'Nick was a generous person,' trust me I won't be doing cartwheels in my coffin. Recognition from people is never and never will be a goal. Some people strive for that respect or honor. Living a life to just reach for the position and status is vanity and sin. -Nick Vujicic

I have tennis shoes with little rhinestones that I slip on if I exercise. But I always wear heels, even around the house. I'm such a short little thing, I can't reach my kitchen cabinets. -Dolly Parton

I want to go and go, and then drop dead in the middle of something I'm loving to do. And if that doesn't happen, if I wind up sitting in a wheelchair, at least I'll have my high heels on. -Dolly Parton

I enjoy just showing people other sides of me, especially everyone always sees me in my helmet and ski suit. It's nice to just show everyone me, just me in my everyday clothes or just me in high heels or just me not in my ski gear, basically. -Lindsey Vonn

The notion that the 'leader' has the right to ask huge sacrifices of your generation for a notional future paradise – if you'd be good enough to lie down under the wheels of the juggernaut – that sentimental and self-aggrandising rationalisation for brute force and cowardice I felt from adolescence was wrong. -Tom Stoppard

By five or six, when the heels start to hurt, I kick off my shoes and walk bare feet. But that's not a big deal. Nobody else is at the office at that time, and as for singing loudly, I don't sing loudly. I might hum a tune at times when I am thinking about something, but that's all fine. -Indra Nooyi

I'm a director, but I gotta have the hair, the makeup and the heels. My mother would be appalled if I didn't dress up. -Nicole Holofcener

You need to let the drivers go for it, and if they bang wheels, too bad. It's fun, it's a good show, the fans are up in the grandstands, and they can scream and shout about it… that's good; that's what you want. -Jacques Villeneuve

Although my mother didn't necessarily approve of teenage girls wearing heels, she made an exception for me when I was 14 because she didn't want me to be self-conscious about my height – or to slouch. -L'Wren Scott

I tested in the top percentile for IQ, but I couldn't tie my shoes or really ride a bike without training wheels until I was almost 7. -Stephen Rodrick

Some girls say they don't feel comfortable in flats, they only feel comfortable in heels; I am not one of those girls. -Gillian Jacobs

I wish I were shyly, quietly intriguing, like Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy, like someone French and fashionable who knows how to twirl her ladylike locks just so and walk adroitly on kitten heels, who is all gesture and whisper – but I am unfortunately forward and forthright: When I am interested in a man, he absolutely knows it. -Elizabeth Wurtzel

I never have had blonde hair. I have never had straight hair. I never wear pink clothes or spray tan and I never wore heels to school. -Carly Chaikin

Part of what made 'The Bling Ring' such a fun, freeing experience was that we got to wear these really over-the-top clothes we'd never pick in real life – like for the nightclub scenes, we'd have on these really short, really tight dresses. But you know what – I actually learned how to walk in heels on that set! -Taissa Farmiga

I'm like one of the tallest ones on 'Scandal.' If I'm wearing my four-inch Abby Whelan high heels, I hover over everybody. I literally have a lower pair of high heels that I wear when I do one of the scenes with the guys. -Darby Stanchfield

One time, I was posing on a car for a calendar shoot. I was doused with oil and literally slid off the car, bikini, heels and all! -Candace Kita

Every time I put on high heels, I think: 'Well, I'll fall over today.' Almost always, I don't. Almost. But all high-heel-wearing women live in constant peril. -Kate Reardon

In falling over in heels while trying to look attractive, you don't just hurt your body, you bear the humiliation of injuring your very soul. Physical pain? Whatever, bring it on. But the humiliation? Oh, you have seen to the very weakest part of me. -Kate Reardon

I do have too many eight-inch heels which I never get to wear. -Cameron Russell

I run around my house naked with heels all the time. It's so funny. -Mary-Kate Olsen

Not everybody can say they wore heels in Paris Hilton's closet. -Israel Broussard

Sometimes, as a guest actor, when you come on, you're coming into a show that's already been established, and the wheels are already in motion. It can be very nerve-wracking, jumping in as a newcomer, but everyone on 'Saving Hope' was so welcoming. -Erin Karpluk

I don't really know on the jobs I don't get – nobody calls me up and says, 'Yeah, you were too tall!' I don't know if it was that or one of a bunch of other factors. But it is awkward. I can't wear heels. -Anne Dudek

I feel most bossy in jeans, a white t-shirt, a leather jacket and some heels. I just feel bossy that way. I also feel confident in a sick dress at a premiere. Like most women, as long as I'm comfortable in it, I feel confident. -Tika Sumpter

On the 'Revenge' set, even if they're not showing my feet, I'll still wear my heels because it gets me in the feeling of Ashley Davenport. -Ashley Madekwe

I'm a sneaker head. You'll find more sneakers than heels in my closet. -Rutina Wesley

I'm really good with sweats, not really good with heels, and not really good with accessorizing yet. -Annie Ilonzeh

I love heels, and as a size 36, I've accumulated a wall of amazing high heels from catwalk shows over the years where designers had to make especially small shoes. Tom Ford's golden versions are my favourite. I do, however, also live in my flat Saint Laurent Chelsea boots or Givenchy sneakers. -Liberty Ross

Some of my biggest complaints about acting in television were that I was always wearing a tight dress or pencil skirt, and I was always wearing heels. -Trieste Kelly Dunn

Usually, like, on 'Mean Girls,' the task that Tina Fey and I set for ourselves was we wanted to maintain a comic intensity throughout the movie, where people just don't really get a break from laughing. And if they do, it's for a brief emotional scene, and then we're going to once again try to knock them on their heels again with comedy. -Mark Waters

If you skate with an Olympic level skater, they make you so much better because you're skating behind them, and you're trying to imitate their stride and their stance. It's like having the world's greatest training wheels. -D. B. Sweeney

Research suggests that investment bankers are more prone to commit fraud when they feel the competitor at their heels. -Charles Duhigg

I really do love being outdoors – I mean, you'd never think it in my high heels and pencil skirt! But I really do miss the smell of hay and farms, and I like milking a cow. -Christina Hendricks

I'm either in heels or barefoot. -Christina Hendricks

I like to go hiking. I like to go rappelling, swimming, biking. I go boogie-boarding. I collect Hot Wheels. I collect glass. I collect coins. And I collect cards. -Nolan Gould

I really like crop tops. I like how you can dress them up or down, with jeans or a skirt and heels. I like to be showy and cute. I don't want to be in just a jacket and pants and boots. -McKayla Maroney

There's still nothing I love more than being in the air. I've always liked speed and things on wheels, going out there and putting it all out there, being on the edge. -Rickie Fowler

My goal is to do cartwheels for the rest of my life. -Andie MacDowell

I'm always stressed when I have to wear a long dress, especially with those high heels. I'm like, 'Oh my God, I'm going to fall! My feet are going to get caught in the dress!' -Sigrid Agren

Tatiana Alvarez, who also became a queen of the wheels of steel in L.A., has now sold her incredible cross-dressing, reverse 'Tootsie' story to Warner Bros. in Hollywood, and hotshot producers Mike Medavoy, Brian Medavoy and Erwin More have reunited to turn it into a movie. -Robin Leach

Being steadfast and immovable with our heels in tar on the Lord's side of the line is the only strategy that works long-term against Lucifer. -Sheri L. Dew

The only thing I learn on a daily basis from law school is that I disliked it and the law so much that it's constantly this fire at my heels. -Stephan Pastis

Tithing is like training wheels when it comes to giving. It's intended to help you get started, but not recommended for the Tour de France. -John Ortberg

The one test I have for every completed book is if I feel head over heels in love with the hero. If he hasn't stolen my heart from the previous hero, I know the book isn't right. -Kresley Cole

Seldom in the history of medicine has the recognition of the most effective cure followed as swiftly on the heels of the discovery of a disease as the establishment of the complete effectiveness of iodothyrin and thyroidin followed the recognition of cachexia thyreopriva. -Emil Theodor Kocher

Instead of inventing imaginary friends, I invented whole imaginary worlds. They were elaborate scenarios about spies and adventurers and top secret missions. I crawled along my swing set, searching for escape routes from my maximum-security prison; I biked through the neighborhood, the wind in my hair and a fleet of evildoers on my heels. -Robin Wasserman

As a child, I was prancing around in my mother's high heels and a ra-ra skirt, singing 'Material Girl' into my hairbrush. -Natalie Dormer

I'm like a dude. Jordans are my favorite. I wear them all the time for shows. I can get girly-girly when I want to, but I can't perform in heels. I would bust my face open on stage, and we don't want that. -Rita Ora

My women students openly admit that they dress for interviews like dates, hoping to look their best: makeup, high heels, a well-fitting suit that shows off their figure. And I always tell them to make sure to wear a shirt under the suit jacket. Form fitting, yes. Cleavage, no. -Susan Estrich

The wheels of publishing never slow down. -Laurie Graham

Outlining is like putting on training wheels. It gives me the courage to write, but we always go off the outline. -Hallie Ephron

I feel like heels must be a workout! I know that they're really bad for you, but I run around in heels a lot and go up a lot of stairs, so maybe that's my terrible workout. I know that's not really a workout. -Blake Lively

What can I say? I feel good when I'm wearing heels. I feel sexier, attractive. -Blake Lively

Me and heels are very good friends. -Emilia Clarke

I was riding dirt bikes when I was a little kid. I got my first Harley Davidson when I was 17 years old. It was a frame with wheels and a tank on it and all the parts in a box. -David Labrava

As I try to get around with a guitar, a banjo and a suitcase of high heels and dresses, I treasure that little ukulele. -Valerie June

I like to be creative with my red carpet outfits, but equally, sometimes I am just in the mood to go all out with a ball gown and heels – but only If you get me on the right day! -Kiesza

To be honest, I'm more of a sneaker person. My legs hurt if I wear heels for too long. -Kiesza

I'm typically not a heels person. -Jenny Lewis

I love the shape of '50s fashion: the clothes are very flattering; they let you out in the right places. I love high heels, too, as I'm only five foot three, although I always tell people I'm five foot five. -Imelda May

Our TV and movie cops are usually in heels and pencil skirts. -Allison Tolman

Some people can go out in a tight, short dress and heels, and it works, but even if I'm going to a club, I've got to throw on a big hoodie or something. And that's if you can get me into something tight in the first place. -Suki Waterhouse

When I have a big enough handbag to carry a little pair of booties with, I always do – those pointy Christian Louboutin heels are just no fun to walk around in. -Anna Kendrick

I like to wear colourful clothes because they make me feel happy: short-shorts with funky tights and big jumpers are what I'm into. And I wear most things with hi-top trainers – I'm not a huge fan of heels. -Eliza Doolittle

Chick-lit may be staggering on its heels, but women's fiction is alive and kicking. -Jojo Moyes

It's great to fall head over heels in love at a fast pace, and nothing's more romantic, but you need to look after yourself. -Douglas Booth

I can be an incredibly fabulous person, and I don't have to be in the highest heels, the tallest wig, the skimpiest outfit. I can let other things speak for me now. -James St. James

I didn't bother with television myself because it consisted largely of windmills, puppets and pottery wheels, interspersed with elderly men smoking pipes while they discussed Harold Macmillan in Old Etonian accents. -Christopher Fowler

I like to have the widest part of the car being the wheels and not the body. It gives it a more athletic look and, with the sculpture, helps make a car look sexy. -Henrik Fisker

For a long time, because I'm pretty tall, I was scared to wear heels, but now I wear them all the time. I feel like I'm still discovering my stage style, but I love – well, I'm not a huge color person onstage, but I am in real life. I like short stuff, big heels, fringe, lots of fringe, sometimes sparkle, yeah! -Kelsea Ballerini

I've never hidden my faith, but there are only a couple of issues I would die for. There are a few others I would dig my heels in on, and I've told my caucus that what they see is what they get. -Dan Webster

I would love to design my own shoe line. Women suffer too much in heels. I want to design a line of sexy platform heels that don't hurt. -Wynter Gordon

You don't need to have Asperger's to feel bewildered in a culture that relies so heavily on inconsequential chit-chat to grease the wheels of day-to-day life. -Lynn Coady

I didn't really know how to write jokes, so I just told weird, long stories about being tall and beautiful and wealthy in New York. I'd tell them very seriously, but I kind of looked like a drag queen at the time with big wigs and crazy 12-inch platform heels. -Melissa McCarthy

I like a bit quirky, a bit strange, but then at the same time, I love putting a dress on… and a pair of high heels. It's like a costume. -Sarah Snook

Most people feel weird about white heels, but I love them and wear them with everything, especially when I need to mix up an all-black outfit. -Katherine Schwarzenegger

My go-to shoes for red-carpet events are usually always black, but I mix between my pointed stilettos and platform heels. -Katherine Schwarzenegger

I'm a heel man. There's no doubt about that. I've always done heels for my shows, ever since the first in 2008. -Christian Cota

Looking good is a commitment to yourself and to others. Wigs, killer heels, Pilates, even fillers – whatever works for you, honey. -Iman

For me, I am a really tall woman, and I am really tall in heels, and I feel bigger, and I like being bigger. I think I was a king in a past life. -Alysia Reiner

One hot summer night in San Francisco, roughly 10 years ago, I was sitting in a crowded Pacific Heights restaurant when Alice Adams walked in with a man. She was about 60 at the time, and she was wearing a skirt that fell an inch or so above her knees and flat heels without stockings. -Mary Gaitskill

In business, I believe that if you focus only on the journey, you'll miss the whole point of the enterprise. There has to be a goal, an end game of some kind; otherwise, you're just spinning your wheels. Yes, the journey is important, but the destination is important, too. -Ivanka Trump

It's better not to wear too much jewellery – just a couple of nice things, nothing too rattly – and stick to kitten heels or flats. Women let themselves down with tall heels. I think they're kind of vulgar. I see women sinking into grass at outdoor parties or tiptoeing over gravel at weddings. It's silly. You need to be practical. -Jerry Hall

All this size 0! A bit ridiculous. There's something creepy about fashion shows. The models look like they're going to be tortured. They do this strange pony walk; their heels are so high, they can hardly walk. Creepy! -Jerry Hall

I always felt that Nano should have been marketed towards the owner of a two-wheeler because it was conceived giving the people who rode on two wheels with the whole family an all-weather safe form of affordable transportation, not the cheapest. -Ratan Tata

The fact is, after a certain age, high heels can feel as painful as someone sticking hot pins into the soles of your feet. -Marie Helvin

When I do wear heels, I prefer to only wear them to dinner, where I'll be sitting down most of the time. -Marie Helvin

For me, my 50s was the decade when my tolerance for heels faded. I'm in good shape and, at 8 st. 3 lb., I'm still the same weight I was in my 30s, but as you get older, the weight of your body shifts somehow. -Marie Helvin

I love heels. I'm 5-foot-2, and I like feeling tall. -Misty Copeland

When I think about fashion and elegance, I imagine a woman from the 1950s, on an airplane, with seamed stockings and a garment belt underneath, a skirt, high heels, and her hair that she's done the night before, perfectly done eyeliner, lipstick, gloves, perhaps, and all this just to sit on an airplane for a transcontinental flight. -Liz Goldwyn

People say I'm wearing heels because I'm short. I wear heels because the women like 'em. -Prince

When you're performing, you just have to keep pushing through. You're human, and you're going to make mistakes. I think even Beyonce has tripped on stage, and she's Beyonce! We're all human beings, and sometimes we trip in our high heels! I barely perform in high heels. I don't know how those girls do it. -Megan Nicole

We've seen, time and again, when people focus on the outcome rather than what needs to be done to achieve a desirable result, then the wheels fall off. -Cate Campbell

Eight years ago, you may remember Hillary and I were rivals for the Democratic nomination. We battled for a year and a half. Let me tell you, it was tough, because Hillary was tough. I was worn out. She was doing everything I was doing, but just like Ginger Rogers, it was backwards in heels. -Barack Obama

I'm not sure if it's cause I'm getting old, but my heels have to be 3.5 inch or less, or a chunky heel. -Solange Knowles

I look at safety as, you know, there's active and passive. Passive is how do you survive a crash. Active is accident avoidance. And so that's real-time information to you, as a driver, and to your car, to the wheels of a car that will get you out of a bad situation. -William Clay Ford, Jr.

You want to enjoy your night, and you don't want to suffer in your heels too long. Lipstick compensates for the lack of heels. It's a good option, and it works. -Elodie Yung

I actually think I think better in high heels. -Theresa May

Women boxers prefer to focus on the win rather than the bravado. We've come a long way. In the '90s, you only ever saw women parading in heels and a bikini holding a scorecard. Now we're owning it; we should get some male models in Speedos to do the ring walk. -Nicola Adams

A movie, it's like a very complicated timepiece. There's a lot of wheels in a watch. And some of those wheels, if they don't turn right, then, you know, the watch ain't gonna tell the time. -Jason Statham

I prefer jeans to a suit, sneakers to high heels, markets to malls. -Tzipi Livni

When I'm sitting in bed watching 'Chopped' – that Brie I know. But I don't know the Brie in sky-high heels on a carpet with a bunch of people screaming at me. I wonder what she's like. -Brie Larson

I wear heels, and it's not for a fashion statement – it's ammunition. -Nikki Haley

I think because I was Miss World, and I modeled for a little while, I have – I just like heels, actually. I think that's the truth. I'm trying to find an excuse. -Priyanka Chopra

Who doesn't want to be, like, five inches taller whenever they can be? If boys could, they'd be wearing heels. -Priyanka Chopra

Men don't wear high heels, and they don't make allowances for women who do. Tottering down the corridors of power in beautiful but crippling stilettos telegraphs your preference for style over substance. -Donna Brazile

I'm always running up and down buildings or around 800-acre properties for work – you can't do that in heels or flip-flops! -Ivanka Trump

I think the sexiest thing about a woman is confidence, but confidence in a humble way, not in an arrogant way. Sense of humor is definitely important. And sunglasses always hide a multitude of sins. Sunglasses and a great pair of heels can turn most outfits around. -Victoria Beckham

I wear high heels and dresses. I am a total girly girl. -Katee Sackhoff

Through our own hard work and ingenuity, America has spent much of its history as the world's dominant economic power. But our dominance is not pre-ordained – history does not roll along on the wheels of inevitability. -Evan Bayh

With a franchise movie, it's got to turn the wheels of the industry, and the studio has to have them. So you start with a release date. They say we're going to make a new 'Bourne' film, and it comes out summer of X. Then they start on a script, and invariably, the script is not ready in time. -Paul Greengrass

I hate kitten heels; they're useless. Either wear heels that are dangerous, or don't wear them at all. -Deepika Padukone

In general, I'm rubbish in heels. I love them, and I own a lot because it's like being in a sweet shop: they're pretty. But I'm not good in them. I don't walk nicely in heels. -Olivia Colman

I like heels and make-up. -Victoria Pendleton

I got scouted for modeling, and it was really scary – I was walking my dog wearing heels for the first time ever because I had a party to go to the day after, and I wanted to practice, and this black car kind of started following me, so I, being dramatic, picked up the dog and started to run. -Anya Taylor-Joy

A lot of the bikes are carbon wheels now, and you don't have as good a braking surface on a carbon wheel in the wet weather as you do on the old aluminium rims. -Bradley Wiggins

A woman can slip on a pair of embellished cage heels one night and a pair of streamlined, lightweight sneakers the next day. The beauty of modern luxury is the absence of rules. -Giuseppe Zanotti

When you buy a new pair of heels, walk up and down the stairs 10 times. Stairs are the most difficult thing, so if you can do stairs, then you can do everything else. -Giuseppe Zanotti

You can do 'Hamlet' while performing cartwheels… as long as the audience sees your eyes – you can make the performance real. -James Dean

When I was learning to creep, my mother set me down on the beach to see what I thought of it. I crawled straight for the coming wave and was just through the wall of green when she caught my heels. -Sylvia Plath

I don't have any rules about what to wear when I go out. I go through phases. Sometimes I'll go out in jeans and a top and not even wear heels. Sometimes I want to be more sexy, in a dress and heels. -Sara Sampaio

We do high heels, and people know us for that, but the idea of wearing a flat from day to night feels special. -Edgardo Osorio

I started doing flats because women would always apologize for wearing them when they met me, as if they had to be in heels when meeting a shoe designer. -Edgardo Osorio

I wanted to create flats that are as chic as heels – flats you don't have to apologize for. -Edgardo Osorio

I design flats like I design heels: They must be seductive, beautiful and comfortable. -Edgardo Osorio

No one wears high heels all day, every day. -Edgardo Osorio

We're told that to be fly, you gotta have a fly car, the rims on your wheels, the fly jewels, and that to work a regular job and make legal money is uncool. -Missy Elliott

I just can't do heels any more. At least not when I'm working. I travel a lot. -Victoria Beckham

Fashion will take on added stature one day, but try not to be stifled by it. You will learn, as you mature, to swap heels for Stan Smith trainers, minidresses for crisp white shirts. And you will never be one of those people who just roll out of bed. -Victoria Beckham

Another solid run through Central Park. Admittedly, six miles turns out to be a bad idea after a full day in heels! -Meghan Markle

I was a millionaire twice over and half again before I was twenty-one. I stole every nickel of it and blew the bulk of the bundle on fine threads, gourmet foods, luxurious lodgings, fantastic foxes, fine wheels, and other sensual goodies. -Frank Abagnale

Wearing heels is no joke. -Ryan McCartan

It's so irritating, because male rappers don't have to have a look. A guy can look like a bum on the street, but as a male, people will accept him because he's a rapper. But females, they expect you to have a big booty. They expect you to walk in six-inch heels. -Tink

I'm inspired by all those women in the '60s – they look so put-together and cool at the same time, and they all were moms – moms and career women. I do wear heels, though. Pretty much always. I need to feel good about myself, so even if it's casual, I'll slip them on. -Julia Restoin Roitfeld

If a French woman wears jeans, it's never with flats – always heels. -Julia Restoin Roitfeld

Tom Ford gave me high heels for the baby. They're a little kitten heel with a velvet rope that you tie. It's like a collection piece. I have to put it on the bookshelf, framed. -Julia Restoin Roitfeld

It's so strange how people can be judgmental when they see a pregnant woman dressed in high heels and tight dresses. Being pregnant shouldn't make you feel less of a woman, but more of a woman! -Julia Restoin Roitfeld

I love thigh highs, heels, shorts, or a skirt. -Aja Naomi King

Once upon a time, I was morbidly sensitive about the impertinence born of sociology. Taxi drivers would not stop for me after dark; white girls jogged to keep ahead of my shadow thrown at their heels by the amber street lamps. Part of me didn't blame them, but most of me was hurt. -Darryl Pinckney

I smoked, I drank, I did all the kicking my heels up type things, but I went to Mass on Sunday. -Elaine Stritch

I am just as comfortable in sweats and sneakers as I am in a dress and heels. Attitude is everything! -Blac Chyna

The truth is that for a Democrat to triumph in a presidential election, it needs to come on the heels of 'the dark times' of an unpopular Republican administration. Carter followed the Nixon era, Clinton succeeded after 12 years of Reagan/Bush, and Obama was a direct result of eight years of Bush/Cheney. -Fabrizio Moreira

Mad or glad, Mr. Reagan is head over heels in love with Mrs. Reagan and can't even imagine a world without her – He loves her. -Ronald Reagan

I loved shoes. I had my little ballerina flats, and my mom never wore heels. But when I was about three or four, she got a job where she had to wear the tiniest heels. I was obsessed. -Chloe Gosselin

Beautiful feet are coveted by all women, everywhere of all ages, especially when they want to look their best and show off those strappy heels. -Jacqueline Fernandez

I would like a taller guy so I can wear high heels. -Caroline Wozniacki

I love high heels from the age of 10! Short skirts and then high heels. My classmates used to make fun of me. Like, 'Ooh, she's so skinny and she's wearing high heels.' But I just wore what I like, and I didn't care about people's opinions, the same as I don't care now. -Irina Shayk

What you wear – and it always starts with your shoes – determines what kind of character you are. A woman who wears high heels carries herself very different to a girl who wears sneakers or sandals. It really helps determine how you carry yourself. -Winona Ryder

Like most people, I have this sort of love-hate relationship with Pittsburgh. This is my home, and at times I miss it and find it tremendously exciting, and other times I want to catch the first thing out that has wheels. -August Wilson

I'm very grateful that I don't have to wear heels, because I can barely walk in heels. If I were to skip, it would be deadly. -AJ Lee

I am not looking for a life partner right now. But if I've to list out the requirements, I have a huge list. But the first requirement is he should be tall and should be taller than me; even I wear heels. -Rakul Preet Singh

People talk about 'date night,' and it is true: Sometimes you have to apply yourself, or at least apply lipstick to yourself. You kind of have to dress up, just because. You know, wear heels to your own dinner table. -Claire Danes

See, all actors pretend. I enjoy that pretence. I don't wear heels in real life, but if it is for a character, I love to get into the traits of the person I am playing. -Sarita Choudhury

My mother took my brother and I to a production of 'The Tempest', and it was in this very small – it could have been the basement of a church or a black box. The space was vast, but there were maybe 15 seats in the middle. Ariel came out wearing a nude sparkly thong and spike heels, and the muses had these gossamer see-through gowns on. -Phillipa Soo

High heels. I respect people who love them; they're just not for me! -Sophie Hawley-Weld

Sometimes I like to be comfortable and wear black jeans with a blazer, a really comfortable t-shirt, and low boots with heels. Sometimes I like to be feminine and preppy. -Pom Klementieff

I haven't grown since I was 13, and every girl cast opposite me isn't allowed to wear heels on camera, for fear that I would look minuscule. In all of the casting calls for my best friends on every project, it says in big, bold, red letters: 'Please no high heels.' It's a little embarrassing. -Dove Cameron

I felt like an ugly duckling back in school. I was a complete tomboy with short hair. Never in my dreams did I imagine that I would walk the ramp with 6-inch heels. My friends can't believe that I'm an actor, because I was such an introvert in school. -Pooja Hegde

It's important to show that there's different ways of doing things. Some people like to be glamorous, and that's perfectly fine, and that's amazing. If I were that style, then I would do that. I'd wear heels every day, and I'd strut around in a dress, but that's not me. -Alessia Cara

My parents couldn't afford physical therapy, so they sent me to dancing school. I learned how to dance in heels, which means I can walk in heels. And I'm from Jersey, and we are really concerned with being chic, so if my friends wore heels, so did I. -Maysoon Zayid

Today, I am a touring standup comic who cannot stand up. Within three minutes, I begin to wilt, lose my balance, and topple over. I can tap dance and run in heels, but I need to use a wheelchair to navigate airports. -Maysoon Zayid

People know there's more than one side to me. You can have beauty and brains and athletic ability. You can switch up the cleats for heels once in a while. You can do both. -Alex Morgan

Once, I was going to a film event, and someone told me not to wear high heels to it. They said that it might intimidate the men. For some reason, I was ready to take their cue, but about an hour later, something in my head started ringing, and I thought, 'That is the worst advice anybody's ever given me.' -Evelyne Brochu

I grew up watching 'Ghostbusters' and 'Knight Rider' and Hot Wheels commercials. When I got to college, having never set foot in America, I knew more American pop-culture references than my friends did. -Kumail Nanjiani

You can't do TLC dances successfully in high heels. -Rozonda Thomas

I read Pamela Colloff's oral history about the campus shooting, '96 Minutes,' when it was first published, and my wheels immediately starting turning toward making a film and making it an animated re-telling. -Keith Maitland

In society at large, nerds are law-abiding, caring, fundamentally good folk who keep the wheels of civilization grinding. -Alexandra Petri

How can you live the high life if you do not wear high heels? I don't understand why women wear these ballet pumps. They are only good if you walk like a ballet dancer, and only ballet dancers do that. -Sonia Rykiel

I've never been one for color theory or color wheels or undertone rules or anything like that. I don't know if my red lipstick 'should' be more blue or more orange. -Emily Weiss

Not always trainers, but if I don't have to, I don't wear high heels. It's really just if something looks good on me, I'm going to buy it. It can be Zara or Chanel… I'm going to buy it. -Barbara Palvin

When I was seven and we lived in New York, I ran away. I took my dog and started out across the Brooklyn Bridge… I didn't get very far… It's rather difficult to run away in your mother's high heels. -Lee Radziwill

I was 100 percent tomboy. I had the biggest Big Wheels. -Katherine Moennig

I'd go to lesbian parties. I felt like I wasn't hard enough to be butch, but I wasn't wearing heels and a skirt – I wasn't femme – so I felt like I was sort of invisible. -Dee Rees

I feel far more empowered, sophisticated, and forward-thinking in flats than in high heels. Especially when I am working and hosting meetings. -Emilia Wickstead

It's hard to fight in high heels or even jeans that are too tight. You can't kick in skinny, skinny jeans. -Krysten Ritter

It was fun to dance in heels, and personally, I love dancing. -Rithvik Dhanjani

I never thought I would end up wearing heels someday. -Rithvik Dhanjani

It feels otherworldly to wear heels and makeup. Why fit in when you can stand out? -Ritika Singh

I'll never forget the dance number that I shot with Anushka. The choreography involved a lot of intricate dance moves. I'm at least 7 inches shorter than Anushka, so I had to wear the highest heels I've ever worn in my life; throughout the song, I even injured my knee a couple of times. -Nithya Menen

Every movie that I'm in is very different in terms of aesthetic and costume. I mean, from 'Mirror, Mirror' to 'Mortal Instruments,' I went from dressy dresses to leather and heels and tight, sexy, chic outfits. -Lily Collins

I dread my trial at the pearly gates – knowing my luck, I'll be hot on the heels of a blameless nun who will be ushered straight to a luscious cloud with prime sea views. -Robert Rinder

We can't spend money on programs just because they sound good… Meals on Wheels sounds great. -Mick Mulvaney

I was an avid reader as a child. I am losing that habit now, as my brain congeals into cabbage from wearing too many heels and too much foundation. -Swara Bhaskar

My faith in my filmmaking changed on the heels of 'Titan.' It allowed me to pursue things that I previously would have questioned. -Chris Meledandri

I don't know if there will ever be a day that I'm not wearing heels. I'm a very big personality, and I don't like to look up at other people. -Jessica Chastain

When I got the call from Chippendales, my jaw dropped, as it came on the heels of TMZ calling me fat on national TV. I am passionate about health and fitness, so I've kept in shape, and dancing is something I've always enjoyed, so I figured, why not? -Ian Ziering

I can't walk in heels at all. -Rachel Brosnahan

My day look is usually a good pair of jeans, my boots, and a cute T-shirt, but I love to get all dolled up in a dress and heels to go out. -Diana DeGarmo

Beyonce's music is like lipstick or a decidedly tall pair of heels: It's empowering. -Elaine Welteroth

I'm not good at dressing up. I always feel a bit out of place. It's just not me – high heels and designer dresses – and I can't seem to get used to it. -Kaya Scodelario

I have a Masters and a technology degree already. When I'm not in film or television, my wheels are spinning full time. -Lamman Rucker

You know, when you go to weddings, you see these guys wearing those dress shoes with extra inches of heels? I really don't like those. -Jessica Jung

Usually, what I do if I want to dress things up is I don't go for high heels, but I go for mid-heels instead. -Jessica Jung

Femininity in general is seen as frivolous. People often say feminine people are doing 'the most,' meaning that to don a dress, heels, lipstick and big hair is artifice, fake, and a distraction. But I knew even as a teenager that my femininity was more than just adornments: they were extensions of me, enabling me to express myself and my identity. -Janet Mock

The ANC must ensure that South Africa does not become a mafia state because once you reach that state, all the wheels have come off. -Cyril Ramaphosa

Rock stars love Cuban heels because a lot of them tend to be diminutive. And I've never met a man who doesn't mind having an extra inch or two anywhere on his body. -Patrick Cox

Falling head over heels in love with women was a habit I thought I'd thoroughly grown out of in middle school, when a group of about five girls and I color-coordinated our outfits and spent weekends and even some weeknights sprawled out in each others bedrooms. -Jenna Wortham

A self-driving car will have 200-plus CPUs. That's a data center on wheels. -Peter Levine

I think the weirdest question I've ever gotten was, 'If people had wheels and could fly, how would we differentiate them from airplanes?' -Randall Munroe

An orchestra can add some class, a historical vibe, but I believe you can get the same emotion from pottery wheels. -Brian Reitzell

I say I'm 5 feet 12 inches. I'm definitely 6 feet. In my heels, I'm 6 feet 3 inches. -Allison Janney

I wish I was a prolific writing wondrous boy genius – I wish I was Stevie Wonder – but I wasn't. I was me. I wrote terrible songs about girls I was head-over-heels about. As soon as a pretty girl looks at me, that's it – I'm in love, and I should probably write a song about it! -Jack Garratt

I wear trainers everywhere. Weddings, parties, definitely red carpets and fashion events. It's bad. And listen, I love shoes. I love high heels. But I buy trainers all the time. -Adwoa Aboah

A man in high heels is the most dangerous thing in the world. -Justin Tranter

My mom has a big ol' crush on Arne Duncan, so I hear about and see pics of him all the time. I think he could look great in heels! -Justin Tranter

People are always quick to judge SPW because of the fact that I wear heels. For me, I just have no choice. This is just how I feel beautiful and how I feel awesome. I would just be so uncomfortable onstage if I was wearing something else. -Justin Tranter

If I'm dancing, I'm definitely not wearing heels. I just don't love wearing heels. I feel it's just a thing you have to do to keep it sexy or whatever, but I really don't enjoy it. I just love wearing a sneaker. -Nina Agdal

Red carpet is always fun, but you're never going to see me on the street or in the grocery store in 6-inch heels. But I am always going to have big, fabulous hair and makeup. -Jessie James Decker

Though we endow them with human features – heads, faces, heels, toes – golf clubs are profoundly inhuman tools. -Steve Rushin

For my equipment, we're not about running. We're about wheels, action sports, and that type of thing. So we want range of motion and shock absorption. The foot itself has 28 degrees of ankle motion as you press into it or you put weight into it. A typical running or walking foot has kind of around 10 to 12, at max, flex at the toe. -Mike Schultz

I'm one of those girls that, day-to-day, I'm in trainers or Converse. I have about 50 pairs of trainers, so when I get the chance to dress up, I will definitely be in heels. 100 percent. I might take some battered Converse in my bag to wear at the after-party when my feet are tired. -Bel Powley

When I was growing up, everyone dressed the same. You had to have bootcut pants and chunky heels. -Sutton Foster

From the first time I harangued my mother into buying me a pair of platform sandals at the irascible and persistent age of 11, I've worn heels. -Mary H.K. Choi

When I moved to New York City from Texas at 22, amateur hour was over. As a newly grown-up person, I vowed I would wear dresses and skirts, wool trousers occasionally, and heels always. -Mary H.K. Choi

I don't want to be that girl hobbling around in heels, falling in snow. -Maia Mitchell

Fashion once meant dresses and heels, and I didn't know why I'd want to be dressed that way. Now I'm like, 'Oh my God, those Saint Laurent boots!' Those are not words I thought I'd ever say. A beautiful suit is nice. I get fashion now. In fact, I love it. -Ellen Page

This sounds crazy, but I was born in the fashion industry. So, I probably wore heels by the age of two. When I was two, I would steal my mom's heels. -Eiza Gonzalez

I would be doing anything to avoid a 9-5 job and high heels. Lifeguard, beach volleyball player, whatever. -Julie Foudy

I love winter clothes. For me, it is all about choosing great materials and getting the right cut for your body – and then styling it right. For example, I love an oversized manly jacket, but I'll team it with some girly heels. -Jeanne Damas

A trick for looking taller is to wear a top and pants in the same color family – and to hide heels underneath the pants! -Jeanne Damas

I live in Paris, a city where you have a lot of stylish women, so I learned a lot by observing the women in the street. But my mother was always a big influence as well; she is always very feminine in high heels and perfectly cut dresses, with perfect makeup but never too much. -Jeanne Damas

When I don't know what to wear for a night out, I always wear some high-wasted jeans, a fluid top, and high heels. -Jeanne Damas

I'm in heels more than flats, but when I wear very short dresses, I like small heels. -Jeanne Damas

Prince was outside his dressing room, shaking one of those little Easter egg maracas. His hair was straightened to a soft wave; his eyelashes were unfairly lovely. He smelled like the most expensive shelf in the Sephora perfume aisle. This man wearing eyeliner, heels and ladies' perfume somehow managed to be more masculine than the burly bodyguard. -Mayte Garcia

I got a bike – a fixed-gear with bright blue wheels, custom-made to my specifications. I am a San Francisco techno-hipster, so this selection was a bit of a self-caricature. But sometimes the predictable thing turns out to be the best thing, too, and you can't let that stop you. -Robin Sloan

For five years of my life, I was just getting by – every day was painful. I couldn't wear heels, I couldn't run, and I could only walk for, like, 20 minutes. That's not living. -Lauren Wasser

I always travel with a fun skirt, a go-to dress you can dress up or down; walking heels & flats are a must. -Ashley Nell Tipton

I'd like to be smart, fun, and real. It's very easy to just put together a pretty dress, some heels, and some jewels. I don't want to be that girl. It's all about being brave, taking risks. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. -Ella Purnell

I don't like high heels. -Sonita Alizadeh

While performing, I can't wear anything that I'm not going to be able to dance in or heels that don't have ankle support. -Kali Uchis

If you're looking for a dress to wear to an event, put it on with the heels that you're going to wear and walk around the room and make sure you feel comfortable in it. -Vanna White

I've gone from wearing jeans and cowboy boots to wearing miniskirts and gold tassels and high heels. I'm sure I'm not going to dress that way forever. It's going to change again and again. -Grace Potter

I went through this phase of Spandex, high heels, and fur coats when I was my late teens and early twenties; before then, I lived in overalls and baggy T-shirts. -SZA

That's my boy, Obama. I'm rocking with him until the end, 'til the wheels fall off. -Takeoff

My prom dress was very sweet, very puffy, but I also wore little stiletto, pointed-toe heels, nylon hosiery, the whole nine yards. -Betsey Johnson

I've worn my share of dresses and heels in my career. It's easy. It's not very challenging. It's not fulfilling. -Melanie Scrofano

Each employed immigrant has his or her place of work. It is only the taxi driver, forever moving on wheels, who occupies no fixed space. He represents the immigrant condition. -Amitava Kumar

Having watched 'The Lone Ranger,' I asked my dad, 'You think we can be on TV like that guy?' He said, 'Probably not. You have to be 6 feet and blond to work in TV and movies.' I said, 'But what about that guy? Jay Silverheels?' -Wes Studi

Keep it simple. Layer your leotard with high waisted skinny jeans, legwarmers, and heels or high boots. -Mary Helen Bowers

Even in a lot of hip-hop music, they tell you don't give your heart to a woman. But many of the most successful rappers are head-over-heels in love. -Raheem DeVaughn

Snowboarding is skateboarding without the wheels, just on snow. It's the same thing, just that one is on hard ground with the wheels, the other is on snow. You just have to know how to maneuver your board and do things you want to do. -Gza

People don't realize 'Drag Race' is a certain percent competition, but it's also a game show.
