  1. So for those of you who watch the Amazon reboot of Top Gear, there is a bit on the new show called 'Conversation Corner.' The intro is a silhouette of the three of them(Hammond, Clarkson, May) sitting on stools. This week's episode caught me off guard because in the silhouette this time, Jeremy Clarkson was wearing some noticeable heels! I just got a kick out of it seeing that.
  2. @mlroseplant and @Thighbootguy I don't know if I can show it very well in a picture, but growing up, my mom always joked that I had her hips, because my legs didn't go straight down from my waist. I believe my body may have been built for a skirt, which is why I wore them so much when I was younger. This will be the first one in probably 5 years, and definitely the first one my wife will see me in. I was a little disappointed how they did the sizes. I usually wear a 12, so right on the cusp between L and XL, but I ordered a L
  3. @Thighbootguy I hadn't thought of the taper, but I have chicken legs so hopefully it fits ok! I am on vacation so it will hopefully be waiting for me when I get back.
  4. Ordered my first skirt today! I saw a friend wearing it and she pulled it off so well that I had to ask her where she had gotten it from! I ordered a Bar III faux leather pencil skirt in black from Macy's. Will definitely post pictures when it arrives!
  5. When I was younger, I considered myself a closet cross dresser because I chose to wear and look extremely feminine in the privacy of my own home. As I got older, I transitioned from the extremely femme look, and started trying to find clothes and shoes that, while they might be women's clothes, they don't stand out and scream it. This leads to where I am today. Pretty much every pair of pants I own now is women's, including new work pants I just got yesterday. In the winter, I only wear boots, heeled and not heeled, outside of work UNLESS I'm doing work around home, which are hiking/work shoes. I have a decent number of pair of women's underwear because boxers don't work with tighter fitting pants. BUT here is where I draw definitions and lines. Yes, I cross dress because society has labeled the clothing I wear on the lower half of my body to be meant for a woman, not a man. But I don't care because my wife actually prefers it, saying I look better in them. Some close friends know this and don't care. If anything, some of the girls have taken to finding similar stuff for their guys to wear now. But I cross dress, and don't look feminine. When I was younger, I hated the term cross dressing, because I grew up with the though that if I dress in women's clothes, and look like a woman, I must be gay. I feel society as a vast majority is responsible for this. I can't find a specific person to fault, but over time, it seems people just default to seeing you in women's clothes and think, oh you must be gay. I think that may be a partial reason I steered away from that, because I knew I was into women. But shame on me, even though I was young and ignorant then, because now my thought is, who cares? At the end of the day, I remember that life is sooo incredibly short, I don't have time to stop and worry what other people think. Why waste my time worrying and control what people think about me? So remember that no matter what you do, people are going to define it their own way, those who do it, and those who see it. What matters is your take on it and your comfort level. People will always judge. The thing I tell myself is that they are just jealous because they realize how good I look and can pull it off.
  6. What's the brand, etc?
  7. So I think it goes without saying both pairs are hot, and I would love to have either! Thanks for the compliment too! As for the bulge when I wear the boots under jeans, I found that if I wrap my knee high socks over the tops, it pulls them in and hides the bulge. In the above pictures, I was just wearing some regular socks, but I totally agree with you.
  8. Where did you get those from? They look awesome.
  9. I am super jealous of the boots and the fact your wife had you wear them to a party! Keep it going!
  10. 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
  11. @cgllc1860 just out of curiosity, which city do you live in?
  12. Unfortunately not. I am getting to work between 5 and 6 am, and working through until at least 6.
  13. I now am leaving on the 18th of December from the Fremont area. If nothing else, I would love the opportunity to meet up with some other fellow shoe lovers in the area. Anyone?
  14. My work schedule gets me out about 6 pm everyday. So it would have to be after that, and I am usually starving. So I would want food first and foremost. Other than that, I've no exclusions. You pick.
  15. Well, as of yesterday, I have been notified I am flying out tomorrow morning for Fremont. Is there anyone around there? I am going to be there until next Saturday.
  16. @Spareheels I am flying out Saturday for at least another week. Same goes for @SF
  17. When I was in my early 20's, not many knew of my love for heels and boots. While I dated a number of women who knew of my love for them, surprisingly I never bought heels for anyone I dated. Although, I did have girlfriends buy me boots! Haha! Yet, there was this one girl I was friends with and thought she was absolutely beautiful. She probably could be a model. This takes place in my early-mid 20's when Bakers was still around. She had a love for Jessica Simpson heels, and when we were at the mall, I encouraged her to try some on. When she found a pair of patent red pumps she liked, I insisted on getting them for her as she said she didn't want to spend the money. Initially I think it made her feel a bit awkward, but later when she would go out and wear them to a club or somewhere, she would always send me a picture of her wearing them...
  18. @spikesmike I sent you a message.
  19. @Heelster @Thighbootguy @spikesmike I say we get together this month! Next week I will definitely be in Cincy on Tuesday and Wednesday night, with a possibility of Thursday night as well.
  20. Yowza! Looking sharp!
  21. @bambam, can I just say that when dating in my 20's, there were times I had the same problems you encounter. I knew around the time I was 16 that I loved heels, mainly boots, and wouldn't lose that interest. During my dating years, there were a number of girls I dated who didn't like the idea of a guy into wearing heels. On the flip side, there were a few who not only were ok with it, they even bought me boots! I still have some of those to this day! But here is the thing. There was a girl I had known since high school who absolutely loved wearing heels and boots. We dated once in high school and it didn't work out. We remained good friends and had the same group of friends. Well finally, as if predicted, later in my 20's, it became apparent we were attracted to one another yet again. I ask her out, we start dating and are the couple everyone envied. One problem, she wasn't into my heeling and didn't like the idea of it. Sadly, we ended things because I didn't think it was a change I could make for her. So right there it sounds like it doesn't work out... But here is where it gets awesome! I end up in a few year relationship with a woman who tries to change me and says all the stuff like my heeling is a deep seeded issue from my childhood. Needless to say that it ends badly, I lost a decent chunk of money, time, etc. So, I try and get back out there doing things and getting my life back. I start playing poker again with a group of people I knew years ago. Turns out I meet a woman there who is a coworker of a friend. Three plus years and one marriage later, she loves me for exactly who I am and helps support it. She loves shopping with me because she knows I am a guy who actually enjoys it, and I love her because she gives me input on what looks good on me, etc. The point is, life has ups and downs, and quite often, when you least expect it, you'll find the one who accepts you for you and encourages you to be yourself. Hold your head high and heel away. You might be surprised with what you find along the way.
  22. @gj I would definitely own a pair of those!
  23. So today was my first time flying where I had pre-check. I paid the $85, and am extremely happy I did. The one thing I noticed though, is that with wearing my new ankle boots, I still had to take my shoes off because the metal zippers set the metal detector off... now this is by no means a big deal because it didn't bother me in the least, but an interesting observation, considering my belt wasn't an issue, but the zippers were.
  24. Do you have any more pictures of these? And where did you get them?
  25. @Peeptoe, to be fair, I actually live in New Albany, IN
