New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg shared his preference for high heels with the New Yorker’s Rebecca Mead during a party for Jimmy Choo co-founder, Tamara Mellon.

"I like women and I think that they look stunning in high heels -- not that they look bad without high heels. I wouldn't criticize anybody... But, if I were a woman, I think I would wear high heels."

This isn’t the first pro-heel statement that Bloomberg has made. In New York Magazine’s January profile of Christine Quinn (Speaker of the New York City Council), she revealed that the mayor "likes me in high heels" and would "yell at" her when she wore flats.

Is Mayor Bloomberg taking his penchant for high heels too far? If he were a woman, which shoe brand do you think he would wear?
