If there’s anybody who understands suffering for the sake of fashion, it’s us high heel-lovers. But, even we were left wondering what some of these celebrities were thinking when they decided to do some ridiculous things in high heels.
Some of these activities are silly, some are stupid and some are downright dangerous. Scroll through for 14 of the craziest things celebrities have done in high heels. Have you ever done any of these?

3. Victoria Beckham climbed a ladder in 5-inch pumps to decorate a Christmas tree.

To be fair to Khloe, we think she noticed how ridiculous it looked to bowl in heels since she later took off her Louboutins to give her poor feet a break.

5. Mariah Carey took the subway dressed in a blue evening gown and 4.25-inch Gianvito Rossi mules.
The most ridiculous thing about this is that the 4.25-inch Gianvito Rossi mules are the shoes that Mariah Carey packed for her subway ride.
Her original shoes were Sergio Rossi’s “Puzzle” sandals with heels that were just as high. As if her change of shoes provided any comfort!

6. Coco Austin worked out while wearing clear stripper heels.
We don’t even know what Coco Austin was trying to prove when she wore stripper heels to do dead squats.

7. Courtney Stodden jogged in stripper shoes.
The 21-year-old wife of Doug Hutchison went out for a jog in clear stripper heels! She also inexplicably wore the same inappropriate type of stripper heels to go shopping at a kids’ store.
8. Katie Holmes wore heels to the beach — and made daughter Suri wear heels, too.
At least Suri’s heels were square. Katie Holmes’ own kitten heels on her Givenchy booties kept awkwardly sinking into the sand with her every step.

9. Victoria Beckham exercised on a treadmill desk in seven-inch Casadei booties.

10. Hilaria Baldwin did a headstand while wearing black platform pumps.
In 2014, Hilaria Baldwin made it her New Year’s resolution to post a picture of a yoga pose every day. This headstand in a black cocktail dress and black stiletto pumps was one of them.

11. Bryce Dallas Howard ran around in the “Jurassic World” movie in Stuart Weitzman pumps.

12. Amanda Holden wore high heels out in the snow.
We understand celebrities have to look good for the paparazzi, but braving the snow in high heels simply isn’t worth the risk.

13. Courtney Stodden rode a bike in cork wedges…

14. Kim Kardashian attended Glastonbury in Giuseppe Zanotti x Kanye West stilettos.
Kim couldn’t have picked worse shoes for a muddy outdoor music festival. She tweeted that she had her “wellies in the car,” but we know Kanye probably wouldn’t have let her trade the shoes he designed for a functional pair of rain boots.
