Default How do women drive with stilettos?

The other day at a party I noticed this lady (a very charming one at that) take the keys of her Fiesta from the valet and drive way with such grace. Oh, and she was wearing those 4 inches stilletoes.

I was totally confused whether to be enamoured by the lady or her driving elance.

Anyhow, once I was back to my normal self, I started wondering how do ladies manage to drive with stilletoes and high heels.

Any clues?

I guess they take them off once inside . might be wrong as my exposure to this skill is minimal to say the least.

Females have skills that no man will get how?

Why bother just enjoy the skills they have.

Here Skills == Driving Skills.

Update: I just asked a colleague, and she said she can drive with her stilletos. Although, I have never seen her do so. Anyhow, I personally do not feel driving with stilettos is very safe.

Leave about how they drive, I am for longtime about how they manage to walk first.might be inscribed with some super natural skills by birth. They do lot of things like this which men will never dare to try

Hope this is stowed away safely while driving...NOT SAFE to leave it lying around on the driver-side floor, can mess with the A-B-C pedals.

The women I know - and who drive pretty well (wife, sister and a few colleagues) are as comfortable driving as they are walking with those 6" heels.

I have always wondered how they manage to walk so very quickly with those and that too on carpeted floors, and now this. No answers yet...I just see men nodding in agreement when you say..."that is a skill".

That is indeed a skill! For as long as I remember I have noticed women carrying stilletos with perfect grace, until I moved to my new office. A lady here insists on wearing 6 inchers and boy what a tragic sight it is! She just sways and hobbles from place to place! Once I even heard some random women commenting on this particular lady in question as to why do people wear heals when they can even barely walk in them. Luckily, this particular lady does not drive. If she does, or intends to I shall forewarn all fellow T-bhpians and family / friends in Gurgaon.

They take it off, the skill is that its like a *poof* magic trick everyone wonders.

My wife would then wear the flats already parked in the driver side. She does this with elan. I was baffled during courting days but now the trick has been revealed

Forget driving with stilettos, still beats me how they can walk around with them
does it give them a leverage with the pedals ?

perhaps, if one could walk with them, they could drive?

I've been driving in this city for a while now. By my observations, you're a little late already

I always thought, the heel-point could give them a 'pivot' to swivel around.
If placed correctly, could even be considered as a 'rest' to the heel.

But, I would love to see one do some heel-toe manuveour

Most of the ladies I know change their shoes while driving if they are wearing heels. One even drives bare foot.
