  4. Why do you love to wear High Heels?

    Growing up around older sister's and curiosity as to why they liked to wear heels . I had always liked how graceful the women looked in heels . I tried on a pair of my sister's and felt right wearing them . I used to get excited just wearing them and as I get older it's more lifestyle than anything . TXguy , Why do you need to rationalize why you wear heels ? HappyinHeels has hit the nail on the head . Best of luck , MIP
  5. Why do you love to wear High Heels?

    TXguy, I think you've an ample array of input here on our collective love of high heels. A question I'd have for your wife would be if she is uncomfortable at seeing you in heels are you uncomfortable at seeing her in pants instead of a dress or skirt. Exactly! I'm old enough to remember when no woman was seen in pants in public. They evolved and asked nobody else's approval when it happened. Equality is a two-way street but men have to have the cojones to claim it for themselves. Some women are insecure about it thinking the wearing of heels means their man is going to want sexual reassignment surgery and these are two COMPLETELY different things. Keep striding ahead my friend because you desire to wear heels will not be going away any time soon. HappyinHeels

  7. Hi Amanda, Also no fantasy here. I wear my 4 inch heels every day, for 12 + hours. I try to go barefoot at night. I do stretching exercises all the time because I'm a skier. I've also damage my achilles and torn both calves, one extremely bad (15 month recovery) and other very mild. But those are just minor injuries. When I ski I have to tape both legs.
  8. The High Heeled Ruminations Of Melrose Plant

    mlroseplant, I have found the technique is to go down with the feet canted at an angle to compensate for the higher angle. I have gone down steps in my own house, department stores, and even a set of carpeted steps at a restaurant with Steve63130 and his wife in 6" wedge boots and always descended with the feet angled. I want to master every venue and situation in heels just as any woman would want to. It is the only way you'll fully enjoy the heeled footwear you've already invested in. I've worn wedges shopping and at an outdoor wedding and pumps to dinner and platform sandals to a few parties over the years and never fallen anywhere. I pay attention to the approaches to any venue to avoid potential problems. It doesn't mean it will not happen but it hasn't yet and it doesn't frighten me. I have so many heels of 6"/15cm or higher so now's not the time to get scared. HappyinHeels
  9. The High Heeled Ruminations Of Melrose Plant

    I walk up and down stairs at work all the time. I have taken to holding on to the railing as I walk down stairs. I also pay a lot of attention to what I'm doing on stairs, up or down.
  10. Hi from Montreal, Canada!

    bootedlawyer, You have an interesting boot collection and it all looks good on you. You are in the right place for sure. Unlike Bnchmark, I don't dislike Quebec and don't think they'll ever separate though I believe in self-determination. My father was raised about 80 mi/130 km northeast of Montreal near Shawinigan. I was up there in April as the last of the snow was melting. Thanks for joining our site. Soyez la bienvenue chez nous! HappyinHeels
  11. Why do you love to wear High Heels?

    I don't need to dance that hard, and besides she's half my age; but last time I went dancing I wore my Calf high Madden Girl 4 inch boots. Why do I live in high heels....I don't like pain.

  14. Eh? That went right past me...
  15. Forgot to mention escalator horrors.
  16. The wearing of heels is more of a matter of taste. It is anybody's guess as to why or how such tastes initialize and not every person experiences this desire. Even when the social expectation and dictation highly encourages or forces people to wear them, doesn't mean those people had or got the taste for wearing heels. In fact, the act of forcing people to do things often leads to a rejection or hatred of that which is perceived as being forced. So, this understanding could be applied through out the existence/history of mankind as social attitudes and standards meandered under the knowledge/myths/superstitions, class distinctions, roles, and technologies of the periods.
  17. Forced to wear heels (repost to a thread in girls forum)

    Hi Amanda, no fantasy here. I wear them all the time but basically never at home. As you rightly said regarding getting stuck in heels - I have experienced a similar issue many years ago that put me into flats for 18 months while I worked hard to recooperate the tendons/ligaments in my feet (plantar fatia/ achilles etc)My sports med specialists demanded that I run excessively and I was taped up and wear only running shoes for 6-12 months to start with, then move back to flat shoes etc.... That - as I know you'll understand is a crappy situation and I understand the challenges you'll have to deal with too. Back then I incorporated flexibility and exercixes into my training (which I do anyway for multisports) every day to ensure that my feet are looked after, I've been doing this for over 5 years now and I've had no niggles/trouble since (touch-wood). None of us appreciate what we have until we are faced with not having it, and I learnt to appreciate high heels more than ever after being so long without them at all. I nowadays wear heels daily - but never at home. I suspect a lot of others wearing is at home more (which is ok - not as many crazy people as me out there) Please don't think I'm fantasizing - I'm not - I've been there & learnt from it. I love heels, want to wear & be seen in them daily and am being careful to ensure (hopefully) I can keep that up for ages to come. On an equally important side note - I hope your recovery is ongoing and getting better and I wish you the best in that regard. signing off todays ramble H
  18. If you wear heels all the time for too long you can end up being forced to wear them by the simple fact that it hurts like hell if you don't. It happened to me and I had to spend a long time doing painful stretching excercises until I could comfortably walk without heels even for an hour or two. It still feels like I have big long clumsy clowns feet when I walk around without heels but at least I'm not forced to wear them in that way anymore. You boys enjoy your fantasy and that's fine but having to deal with it as a day to day reality is different I can tell you.
  19. The High Heeled Ruminations Of Melrose Plant

    Friends, it has been a while since I have posted regularly. Life has gotten busy. I have set some goals for myself outside the world of high heels that takes a good deal of my time. Today, I want to address something that has bothered me for years. Even after more than 5 years of habitual public heeling, and over 1,000 documented miles of walking in heels, I still suck at walking down stairs. I have never actually fallen down the stairs while wearing heels, but I have come close several times. And even when I don't fear for my life, I just feel terribly awkward walking down stairs in heels. I'm a pro at it in bare feet or flat shoes. I think this week, I have finally pinpointed the problem. There is some combination of weakness in my quads and glutes that are simply not strong enough to control my steps downward in heels. That last couple inches to the next step downward is a bit of a freefall. I think if I could get to the point where I could hold my leading foot for several seconds an inch above the next lowest step, it would improve my grace descending the staircase. Any thoughts or stories about this problem?
  20. Why do you love to wear High Heels?

    Yes, pretty much all of the above, and twice on Thursdays. However, perhaps there is something I can add which hasn't been mentioned before, I have always been fascinated by the athletic challenge of wearing heels. I have always admired dancers, acrobats, and the few girls in high school who could really walk well in heels (there was one girl who would demonstrate, from time to time, that she could do cartwheels in her 4 inch heels!). I always wondered if I could do the same. I still can't do a cartwheel (I don't think) even in bare feet, but I have managed to become proficient at walking fairly long distances in pretty doggoned high heels, and I have gotten to where I can do the bar thing, standing for several hours in heels. This never fails to fascinate at least one woman at any given venue. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why my favorite style of heels is mules. Some people call them slides. In other words, shoes, or more typically sandals, that are backless. With a few notable exceptions, they are harder to walk in than boots or sandals with a strap around the ankle or heel. For some dumb reason, I find this challenge attractive. And that's pretty much all I've got to say about that. It's all very complicated. And it has complicated my life, but I'm happy with where I'm at.

  22. At last, the outfit I have been trying to put together for some time. The boots you have seen....I also have a new Lambskin Leather Skirt and Top. The hat I borrowed, I'm not a hat person, nor is it a hat outfit, but for privacy and not to chop off at the head... Although Maril might chop my head off if she finds me wearing her hat, with my skirt. I can wear my leather dresses, pants, shorts and coats, but not keen on the skirts. I also have a nice leather jacket to match but a bit too much today. Thanks all. js
