Can I wear stiletto heeled shoes on acoustic or cushioned vinyl floor?

Can I wear stiletto heeled shoes on acoustic or cushioned vinyl flooring?

Stiletto heeled footwear with the heel tip present and in good condition will not damage or mark any Forbo sheet or tile floor covering. Problems of damage from stiletto heeled shoes are caused when the tip is damaged or missing from the heel exposing the metal pin or hollow steel tube that supports the body of the shoe heel. The increase in pressure on the surface of the floor covering is increased enormously and will result in indentation marks in any resilient floor covering and in some cases even ceramic floor tiles.
