  2. Was in need of some OTK boots as I currently (or previously) didn't own any. Couldn't decide between the Chinese Laundry luster or the Aldo Graziella, so when I found one for over 50% off on Ebay I just got both. Stock pictures below. Also a review on Aldo for anyone interested. I think the Aldo are a bit classier, they are very soft. Kneebooted, the jeans tucked in I think looks better. When you wear them under jeans you get the awkward bulge at the top of the boots.

  4. Agreed with all,,,,,, even with Amanda in some cases. There are some men and women that I often ask myself,,,,,, "did you look in the mirror before you left the house?" Although I have no problem wearing heelsin public I have yet to have someone tell me I look bad or rediculis, yes I get the occasional stair or point but I could really care less. And as most of you know I'm not trying to pass as a guy looking like a girl, I am clearly without any doubt just a guy in heels and a skirt and from my outings and post have been told I pull it off pretty well, even at 50 years old, even with my bowed legs that some here and in public make sure I am well aware of. As I have said in the past, I'm not hear for a long time, I'm just here for a good time ! Just my 2 cents.

  7. Just spotted this thread so a bit late to the party! I voted sometimes. While I don't own many pairs of boots, I have to admit when wearing them, much prefer to show them off over jeans or jeggings. Sometimes feel like wearing my boots but choose to cover them with long boot cut pants - a waste perhaps - although I still get the feel good factor while portraying a more conservative image.

  8. Thanks to everyone who responded to my question. It was so close to home that it really jolted me. But I agree 100% that I have to live life to the fullest and do what I want to do. Anything could happen - lightning, fire, earthquake, hurricane, etc., etc. But you all helped me put it in perspective and I'm wearing my stiletto boots to work today .

  10. New pair of boots. Wife bought these for me. Wasn't really a Christmas present since she gave them to me New Years Eve Morning. She said I could only wear them when she said I could, but that just happen to be that night at a party we were going to. Was a little nervous wearing the them outside my jeans. Well these are not my regular jeans. They were my wife's denim leggings. The pic above was taken on the way out the door. At a party of about 14 people, these boots were the talk of the party.

  12. To: JKrenzer, hoborob, Steve63130, 5150PLB1, swedeheeler, Bubba136, I must admit that I'm surprised at your postings. This site has always been supportive of people. To bash someone like that who took a chance is very discouraging. s2005kz has been a member on the board for quite awhile and perhaps finally got up the courage to display what was nice in s2005kz eyes. You are basically shaming the person and that's not like this board at all. If you have any doubts about whether it's appropriate or not, then Report the posting and e-mail amongst yourselves. I've e-mailed quite a few of you on occasion and always got a very nice and respectful response. To see these replies to the posts is just disheartening. Thanks for hearing me out, Carol

  13. Just to prove I was actually in a movie theater last night (I go to such establishments annually at most), I had to take a hurried selfie. This is pretty much my winter uniform: Black trench coat, jeans, and some type of black boot. Pretty boring, eh?

  17. As you know I have been a high heel wearer my whole life. I have become quite adapt at moving across all types of terrain. But there is something I've unfortunately been thinking about. Many times before I get dressed to go out in public be it a mall, movie theater, airport, or restaurant I consider my shoes in a different light - especially if they have ankle straps and are hard to take off. It's a sad state of affairs, but with all of these mass shootings out there, I worry about having to get away by running, climbing, jumping to escape some crazed person. Would I have time to get my heels off especially with ankle straps? It's horrible to even give that consideration but the world is a rapidly changing place. I live in Florida, so the Ft. Lauderdale airport incident with people sprinting across the runways gave me a scare - being so close to home. Plus the Pulse Night Club in Orlando last year. I will admit that on Saturday I went out to dinner with all intention of wearing my 5 inch stiletto boots, but after the previous day's incident I decided to wear my slides which I can kick off in a second. Does anyone else ever consider this? Sorry if this post is a downer.

  18. I did change the 5" stilettos for 4" stilettos and headed out to two thrift stores, Sam's Club, Kroger super store (grocery) and Walmart. I starteded out wearing the black long coat pictures, above but in the first thrift store I found a short red leather jacket and decided to wear it instead. (I keep telling @JeffB there are short coats out there.) This is a picture in Walmart's parking lot. The knit dress is sleeveless so I added a pair of long gloves (actually shoulder length) that made trying on a different coat in the store an "interesting show". (Shoulder length opera gloves is just a little over dressed for a thrift store. ) This outing turned into over two hours of walking, as I took my time in all the stores I visited, and I found out I could still move quickly in 4" heels when a gust of wind made hat chasing a running event. I think I can safely say I can spend the whole day in 4" heels, so at age 70, if all I have to give up is 1" of stiletto heel height I think I'm doing Ok. Maybe a better way of stating it is I'm lucky that is the only concession I have to make. Getting old is not not the faint of heart, but it isn't too bad when you can do it in heels.

  19. Hey that's great to hear, life's too short. I also wore a pair of stiletto boots to work today. However I had the luxury of having my site boots to hand if the need arose. A foot in both camps so to speak.

  22. So as my wife continues to level up her comfort of my heeling(yes, pun intended), I have been on the search for some boots that could be looked at as either masculine or feminine to keep her comfortable. I primarily searched DSW.com because I had two certificates totaling $25 off, and who doesn't love discounted things?! Now just as a precursor for those of you who don't know, I have two pairs of riding boots I try to wear almost every day, regardless of the company I am around. The one pair of heeled boots I absolutely love to wear, my wife is still warming up to me wearing them around town, but when I am out of town for work, she doesn't care. So this trek was to find some boots that could pass either way, and at least be within her comfort level. Oirignally she was comfortable with boots she saw that were 2" or less in heel, but these are between 2.25 and 2.5", so not much taller, but she did like them a lot. I've already worn them out twice within the first week of getting them, and I must say, they are extremely comfortable! My only wish is that the calf was a bit smaller, as I have 'chicken legs' per my wife's description. I took photos with 3 different pairs of jeans, and am curious as to what you all think! The boots are Sable, made by Indigo Rd., size 10m

  23. Straight guy here that loves heels on women and just recently found that I love to wear them. WOW what a feeling, now I know what all of the women have been feeling. I have seen and agree that I wish it was acceptable to wear what you want out but know that it isnt. I have been brave and bought pants that go all the way to the ground and have worn pumps into stores a long way from home that are lower end kind of stores. I don't want to run into someone I might know. I avoid as many people as I can. I love the feeling. I wear pumps and platforms, with a thin heel if I can find. I hope this can be a place to talk and share. thank you for listening

  24. Time for me to report again. With time off during the holidays I spent today doing some shopping. I was dressed in my normal male attire at this point. I was out just window shopping some of the after Christmas sales. I was also attempting to spend some of the gift cards I received this holiday season. Along the way I decided to stop at the local thrift stores. I usually attempt to make it there at least once a week. I had not been to any off then since before Christmas, so I was due. I stopped in and the place was a lot less busier than usual! Not to mention the shelves were alot emptier than usual, as well! I have been searching for more coats to wear this winter. All my outings I end up wearing the same 1 or 2 coats. I wear them because that is pretty much all I have that not only keep me warm in the cold Canadian winters, but that look stylish with the outfits I present on my travels. I have a winter parka but it is big and bulky and does not look good when I am travelling and trying to look "fashion forward". I managed to find one this time. The color is a mix of grey white and black. The brand is Reitmans which is a womens clothing store here in Canada. Another piece of clothing I have been trying to find for awhile is some sweaters. I like the look of some of them and they give some extra warmth in the winter time. So far I have come up empty though. They either end up being too tight, or they just don't look right on my body. Most of them have small neckholes and I usually feel like I am being choked. Today I managed to snag one though. it was the first one that fit and looked good on me when I tried it on. I was more than a little excited! It is purple and sleeveless with a high neck and braid like detailing on the front. It also has light purple sparkles throughout. I paid for both pieces and returned home. I was anxious to give both pieces a whirl as soon as possible, so an evening outing was in order! I put together my outfit rather quickly and it included both new purchases. I headed to my usual WIFI spot to kill a couple hours surfin the net. The place was less busier as well and my excursion went off without a hitch. 2 hours and 1 hot chocolate later, I returned home. The outfit 1) purple high neck sweater 2) Reitmans brand jacket 3) American Eagle black jeggings 4) Jules and James black boots 5) Sienna Ricchi black handbag I included 2 pics. The first is the entire outfit. And the second is no coat and bag to show off the sweater. Enjoy! Comments and suggestions Welcome!

  26. I was shopping in Sam's wearing jeans and a pair if shiny stretch OTK boots with 4" heels when a lady, about my age, said, "I really like your boots... there tough." I hadn't heard that term for a lot of years. I thanked her and then she noticed the heels and said, "How do you walk in those, I'd be falling all over the place". "Well I practice a lot. I wear them all the time." About 20 minuted later we passed each other again and she smiled and said, "Well I see you ain't fall'd of them yet". Yesterday (Dec. 25, 2016) the temperatures around Cincinnati Oh. were in the mid 30'sF (1C), but today it was almost 70F (21C). It add more challenge to wardrobe planning.

  30. Fellow Heelers I do not have a specific place to wear high heels. Reason: High heels are my every day shoes. If I go somewhere, Grocery, Movie, Where ever, I go in high heels. Yesterday " 1- 7-2017 Saturday, I went to the Ohio Gun Collectors Gun Show. Entering the main door a man commented " I like those shoes, there not something you see everyday. They Were my black ankle boots, 7" heel with 1 3/4 plat, with brass spurs. Inside the show a nice young woman complimented me on them. Another man ask " What is the story on the high heels? " Another man ask if I had lost a bet. In all- not a negative comment in the 4 hours of walking through the show. It was a good and fun day. I purchased some ammo. spikesmike

  35. Well, I'd say you did okay with the outfit you put together. Getting compliments is quite the rush, and, maybe it's just me, but there seems to be a look of wonder in the eyes of women when they ask how we can walk in heels, as if that's a skill that only they can master. I find that mildly amusing.

  37. Hi All, hope you all had a good Xmas and new year! Between Xmas and new year, I was working but it was very quiet in the office and my desk is at the very back and no one sitting beside me or behind so I was brave and changed in to some heels under the desk and OMG what a rush! think it was knowing I was wearing them and no one else knowing (did have to change pretty quickly once or twice as someone came behind me to grab their coat!) but all in all it was very enjoyable!

  39. I stopped by my favorite thrift store with no intention of buying anything and walked out with a pair of black knee high boots in a size 11 with a 3" stiletto heel and a black knit dress. The ladies at the counter, who know me very well, still remarked that they didn't see how I could walk on those heels, and I insisted that these weren't really serious heels. If you haven't guessed, I really like my new hat. I was out and about earlier today with a trip to my chiropractor (just a tune up) and several trips to the court house. I stopped in a local park for a picture.

  40. Good heavens what an interesting image. Try blocking out one of the boots with your hand and asking yourself to describe the wearer, then block out the other one and ask the same question. The combination describes a very interesting/diverse person. Typically when I think about contrast in an image I'm thinking photographically of the range between light and dark. This image got me thinking about contrast in a whole different way. I am avoiding my suggestion to wear boots over the pants leg. There is already enough contrast in that image. Thanks for sharing.

  42. I am still careful about where I go wearing heels. There are still some places I won't go, but thinking about it I probably wouldn't go there even if I wasn't wearing heels. I don't think I'll bother considering if I will be in a mass shooting when it comes to deciding what my footwear I will be. Jkrenzer said it correctly, "wear your boots or ankle straps with confidence" and it goes without saying never go out in shoes/boots in which you can't walk. I still remember being out wearing thigh boots with 5" stiletto heels and having a $20 bill blow out of my hand. I surprised myself how on well I could run in those heels.

  43. I celebrated the new year in my flashy party shoes 7". But when you celebrate at home, my height concerns were not big concern when the farthest distance to walk was to get another refreshment in the fridge. Happy 2017!

  45. (the dutch part) Hey all, It's been a while since I registered but I never found the time to properly introduce myself. I'm 34 years old, from the flemisch part of Belgium and I love to wear high heels myself. The higher the better, stiletto heels, pointy toes is what I like the most. This has been since I was little so it would be hard to say goodbye too. I'm fortunate that I have a loving wife that is very understanding and let's me be free in this. I hope to meet some likeminded people in here to chat, write etc.. I'm not that confident enough yet to wear high heels in public, although the feeling of 'shame' (although, it's not real shame, most people will understand) is slowly fading away since I told my wife and she's understanding it more and more. But the open talks about the topic with her are rare so that's the main reason why I registered on the board here. To meet and talk with likeminded people.. Cheers, Freek

  48. curiousheels, Now you have an array of input. Thighbootguy had enormous experience with all manor of boots and wearing heels as a guy in general. Others, like me, are more into sandals or pumps whether worn with other items "feminine" and "masculine" blended in or just "dudes in heels". Either way you have to decide what you want to get from the experience of wearing heels. They are not wall decorations but works of art for the feet so embrace them as an expression of your identity. Once you do this first critical step then everything else which follows will be logical and comfortable to you. HappyinHeels
