Nope not at all.  Very rarely do I get a no.  Probably only 2-3 times.  Asking the girls to take the pic always leads in to small talk or conversation about my clothes or heels.  Some as you have seen even take pics with me.  

Bet your all smiles. Doubt i could pull it off without sounding creepy or having ulterior motive. Maybe i'm too serious or assuming woman natural reactions of shivers and awkwardness maybe bitterness that i maybe enjoying wearing heels and accessories  to much. Which creeps females away.

I have come to accept that some guys just have the confidence and charisma to pull this sort of thing off. I am not such a guy, and that's ok. I have other areas in which I excel. Oh, I can just hear myself saying, without meaning to, "Hey, I know I seem creepy, but I'm really not!" Which would explain why I don't have a lot of pictures of myself out in the real world, haha.

Holy cow, not only do those guys look awkward in their huge, ugly platforms, but the rest of the outfits do not help matters either. Also, upon closer inspection, a couple of those guys almost went down, wobbling in their shoes. It makes me cringe a little bit.

Those guys clomped down the runway where most models at least learn to walk in the shoes they model.  They should take lessons and learn the appropriate @CATwalk.  I'm sure @w6ish could show them how to walk on platforms.

Syro has new models of boots. It has anyone of you shoes from Syro?

http://shopsyro.com/shop/

I was not familiar with the Syro brand so I followed the link to the "shop" page and saw shoes and boots (loved the thigh boots) that looked like female footwear but with a twist that made me read the images as "guy's footwear".  I was a bit confused/surprised/delighted so I read the Mission statement and then understood that my confusion/surprise/delight was the designers goal.  There was further clarification when I looked at the sizes available.

I just had to watch this video again, and what I noticed is that it's not just one or two of them--it's all of them--it's like they practiced purposefully walking in that way. I wonder who thought that looked attractive?

As we've said so many times before, this type of exposure is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it's great to have more and more images of guys in heels, so that the public might just get used to the idea. On the other hand, shows like this are hardly going to win over many converts, male or female, and it might simply underscore people's perception that guys simply don't belong in heels.

The way I see it, these designer were attending some competitions. Among all what they could propose, they chose heels for their male models and thought they could win this way

Getting prepared for an everyday outing, men can soon choose heels and be sure they win in their business ?

VIVIENNE WESTWOOD SUPPORTS UNISEX CLOTHING: supports swapping clothes with partner

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/01/09/fashion/mens-style/vivienne-westwood-returns-to-london-fashion-week-mens.html?smid=tw-nytfashion&smtyp=cur&_r=0

Her latest show, a unisex affair on Monday with male and female models, closed the four-day event. The men tramped down the runway wearing a range of outfits, including sharp suits (wide lapels, flared pants) and billowing capes and tulle tutus. The women wore the same. And that, Ms. Westwood declared, was precisely the point.

“Unisex may sound like a joke, but, in fact, it’s all about styling and being able to dress however you like,” Ms. Westwood, 75, said. “Swapping clothes with your partner means you can buy less, choose well and really make them last.”

Swapping clothes with your partner? Yeah, right. Leaving aside colour and style preferences which are most unlikely to be shared, this silly premise also assumes your partner is exactly the same size as you - same height, waist, chest measurements, sleeve length etc.  I am trying to think of a single couple that I know where that would be the case, and I am struggling to come up with any. Certainly I could never wear my wife's clothes, nor she mine, even if we wanted to swap. Which I can't ever imagine either of us ever wanting to do.

Besides, people can already dress as they please - what is stopping them? - without Ms Westwood's imprimatur and without trying to look as though they came out of a cookie cutter.

Her "unisex" is a one way street. Men's wear for women. Where are the guys in heels or femme skirts?

Good in concept - reality says no.

From what I saw of the mens collection - - -Oh hell no. A couple pieces I could see, the rest did nothing for me. I'm not a fashion guru though.

Seemingly only. Thanks goodness, thinks the fashion industry.

Honestly nearly 30% would is a pretty good number. Of the 70% that wouldn't I'll bet a large portion of them don't wear heels either except when the occasion dictates it.

Fun survey distraction from June 2016.  onehallyu calls themself "Your number one Asian Entertainment community forum!".  

http://onehallyu.com/topic/349454-straight-girls-be-honest-would-you-date-a-guy-who-wears-heels/

Reality vs. idea distinction again is key to interpreting results.

 

Pose that question here in the states in different locations and see what you get for results. 30% would be fantastic.

Many young Japanese men have a body and face shape that makes a feminine look easier to mimic.  Although the style is labeled "genderless" it seems to emphasize using several typically female styling features: makeup, nails, heels, skirts that many term cross dressing.  Regardless of the label, I applaud the style even though for most of us, not starting from the young Japanese body and face shape, it is difficult to accomplish.

I haven't :)  Only time I've been to Japan is on Google Earth Virtual Reality and that doesn't even qualify as a true trip.
