    Are men destined to be the predomiant heel wearers?

    ha ha - and yet true ! Sure it wasn't easy wearing high heels openly the first time I did it - but it became progressively easier. Nowadays - I wouldn't be without my heels - and I feel better with nice heels on my feet than any flat shoe. Thats just how I feel - high heels make me feel good. To the point though - from my perspective I love wearing heels openly and they make me feel good - I know its the same for women - so I don't see women giving up on high heels any day soon!

  5. Those of us who wear heels in public don't have a community of men who also wear heels. We are alone in a sea of flats.

    I do wear heels only at home but i wouldn't do it in public only if there was a community of men who would would wear them and I would be part of it in my area and we meet every so often.

    Are men destined to be the predomiant heel wearers?

    How many more men would need to wear heels before you would be ready to wear heels yourself? I’m genuinely curious, because I only just started 4 months ago. I had never really thought about it until I joined HHP. Despite never having met anyone here in person, the interactions here were enough for me to give it a go.

    I don't think so, because what society thinks of men wearing heels versus women wearing heels is different. If society changes there thinking and adopts this idea that men can wear heels just like women and it becomes reality then maybe in the long run it can work. But I dont think. Women have there own characteristics style and femininity that is what is portrayed in society and men have there own masculinity. Yet some men do love to act feminine, but some people might be offended for that if they saw it in public. I dont mind for men to be able to wear heels in public and express themselves the way they like. if more men would do so i would be encouraged myself as I love to wear heels.

    Ladies Jeans...

    I basically ignore "Men's" and "Women's" boundaries when I buy/wear clothes now. Fit and Function over section location. Women's socks fit me better than men's socks so most of my socks are women's, I'm a fan of front pockets in pants, so my long pants are men's, but I like short shorts, so my shorts are now women's. Men's shorts have become capris.

    The High Heeled Ruminations Of Melrose Plant

    Yes, the Midwest is firmly in winter's grip. We have had regular snows in Wisconsin and the state is snow-covered border to border. I have been cutting some messy black willow trees making firewood for next winter and what I have cut so far is drying nicely because of the cold. I'm not surprised by your heel reports from Vietnam. Latin America is much the same. I don't think heels at 5" or more ever went out of style across most of Latin America based upon what I have seen over the last ten years or so. We had a Japan Air flight (#010) at O'Hare Airport direct from Tokyo's Narita Airport when I worked there. It arrived in the 0800-0900 timeframe and I believe it still does. Good reputation. Officers in our agency going to Asia raved about how good Korean Airlines was. Have a good trip back to Iowa. HappyinHeels

    Payless Shoes Closing...

    What irritates me about Torrid is that 4 - 5 years ago they had tons of awesome shoes in a variety of colors and designs. They also all fit really consistently. Then their designs became really frumpy (and more expensive) and their sizing began to fluctuate all over the place. All they need to do is bring back the System, Quincy, Holly, etc. styles and they'd make bank instantly. They did that once before around Halloween a couple years ago when they didn't have any classic platform pumps (black patent and red patent System platforms came back for a few weeks), so it's not beyond them to manufacture them again. I'd say I'd like them to get another larger size partnership with Iron Fist going but it looks like Iron Fist is either in the process of going under (for what, the fourth time?) or already has.

    Boot "season"?

    That's how they dressed in Mad Magazine!

    Boot "season"?

    At least in the hollywood sense... one would think that if a spy stood out in his appearance, he would not be much of a spy...

    A spy or a foreign correspondent...

    Boot "season"?

    I might have a new obsession with trench coats lol... tried walking around inside the hotel in this more casual indoor look. Based on people’s reactions so far this has drawn more smiles and stares than any skirt or heels I have ever worn...

    Ladies Jeans...

    I agree, you are not disproportionate just because you have to chop 4.5 inches off the jeans. There are a number of factors in fit of “size 4”, including the overall design and look of the piece. There are some elastane skinny jeans out there that are designed to be spray on skin tight, but that is not the style that I buy and wear. There are a lot more natural variations in our body shape than can be truly represented in the usual ready-to-wear sizing chart, I think. I must have large hips compared to my waist, at least when compared to other men. Size 4 women usually means like a 27” waist, which is almost always a successful starting point for sizing when I am shopping in the women’s section. On the other hand, when I am trying on men’s jeans I often cannot get the fly to even close on a pair 28 or 29, because the rise is too short and it can’t get over my hips and onto my actual waist. Over the years men have developed the habit of wearing their pants on their hips, so all the sizing reflects accordingly. So if I buy based on my hips in the men’s section, I have to go size 30 but then cinch in all the extra material at the waist with a belt, which I find both uncomfortable and unattractive. In women’s sizes, I find a size 4 in high rise styles to be amazingly more roomy and comfortable compared to anything else I have worn over the years, and I think that is because they fit the proportions of my hips and waist better.

    The High Heeled Ruminations Of Melrose Plant

    The time is drawing near for me to leave this place and come back home. The only sense of dread that I have, besides the more-than-24-hour-journey, is that I'm guessing there will be at least 2 feet of snow waiting for me. It seems that for the first time, we actually escaped some substantial, sustained bad weather. The only heel news I have is that heels are alive and well here in Hanoi, Vietnam, much more so than in the USA. The only slightly disturbing thing is a trend toward Lucite block heels of about 2 - 4". Often, the entire shoe/sandal is made from Lucite or some clear plastic, and they just don't look good to my eye. Even if you completely discount the "stripper shoe" vibe, which you absolutely can, as Lucite has never been associated with strippers or stripper shoes here in Asia, plastic just doesn't look as nice as leather for a shoe. And let's face it, once the plastic straps stretch even a little bit, they never quite fit right, and you get things like nasty-looking toe overhang and such. Hopefully, it's a short-lived trend. There are still plenty of classic pumps and sandals around, both with block and stiletto heels. Wedges, outside of "sports" type shoes, do not seem to be as popular this year. I can say with some certainty that huge platforms of over 1" thick are dead. I have not seen even one pair of 6" heels with 2" platform this year, and several years back they were everywhere. Most popular for office gals who wear heels are either black patent or nude patent pointy-toed pumps with stiletto heels between 3 and 4 inches. Lower than that, gals tend to wear block heels, and I have to say that the most popular shoes for the general population, even for office gals, is flat or nearly flat shoes, which is not at all surprising. It's just that you see WAY more heels here than back home, even in the city. On a completely different note, that corn that I finally got rid of, discussed in the "Infirmary" section, seems to be acting as I'd hoped. The skin underneath of it has now had a week to toughen up and heal completely, and I have noticed that my toe does not rub inside my shoe like it used to. Of course, I will not know for sure until I get back home and go to work for 10 hours a day. That will be the true test. It had gotten to be a never-ending cycle: because my toe was physically bigger, it rubbed the inside of my boot. Because it rubbed the inside of my boot, it refused to go away on its own. It almost makes me look forward to going back to work just to find out. Almost.
