  1. Past hour
  2. I wore the exact above outfit today to lunch and shopping for a new bag at Coach, where I have purchased leather bags previously -- and this time I got a comment. The Asian sales associate was profusely complimentary about my shoes, telling me multiple times how much she loved them. She asked if I had purchased them there, at Coach, because she had an identical pair from the store. I told her I did not, that these were from Aldo, but she said they were a great color particularly for Spring and go well with a lot things. I feel like Asian women are more enthsiatic about high heels than Caucasians.

    To work on 2/25, I wore a fleece top over a sleeveless turtleneck (both black), with my black knee-high thick stiletto boots over my blue Levi’s. Got an email about a big SHOE sale at Macy's so went to check it out and the large mall it is part of. Macy's didn't have anything I wanted, but I did try on several pairs there. I talked with a woman who was also trying on boots. Left and went to Aldos and tried on several heels. Again, none fit (looking for new sandals) and they didn't have a size 11 in the styles I was looking at :(. Two stores down is a Steve Madden store. Looked in at what they had in the store, but they didn't have my size in the heels I liked. Steven Madden sale associates know me as a good client so they go out of their way for me. On the way back to my car I came across the same lady who was also looking at the boots with me in Macy's. Looking surprised she said, "Oh, I didn't realize you had boots on before." "I always wear at least 4-inch heels, I need the rise for my hip." We talked for a while and as we were parting, she complimented me on how well I walk in them. I laughed. === At work I had one woman walk out of her way to tell me how she "seriously LOVED my boots."
  5. Yesterday
  6. The video ends with giving the girl white flowers. In Chinese culture this could be a dangerous insult, as white flowers are reserved for funerals. Is it the same for Vietnamese?
  7. did you get that body suit? i have quite a bit of experience with bodysuits.
  8. As a fisherman who has waded through many streams in search of salmon and steelhead, you would kill yourself wading in heels. Imaging trying to stand on slippery round rocks in fast moving water. Or in sandy beds where your heel sinks in like a stiletto does when you walk across a very went lawn.
  9. I'm not sure about truly waterproof thigh-length waders with a heel, but knee-length heeled wellies are certainly available, as the black 'Hunters' below. I suppose they are a neat idea when genuinely wading as they allow a few extra inches of water to be safely navigated! There is also a Polish manufacturer (https://www.fashion-style.com.pl/en/) who offers a very large range of latex footwear and clothing, including many styles of thigh-length boots, such as the red stiletto pair and the slightly more practical chunky-heeled stripey pair both pictured below. There are some boot/trouser combos too. Being latex, they should be good for some careful wading!
  10. I was somewhat surprised to read the online comments (so far) on the article. Almost all condemn the concept of unhealthy/ugly/outmoded high heels and consider CL's promotion of them as merely his blatant attempt to sell expensive shoes. A common theme was to ask why CL doesn't wear them himself if they are so good. There were very few in favour of him or heels in general. But I suppose this is just another example of opponents being more energetic and vociferous than supporters.
  11. I went through this same thing I didnt post much on here about my confusion I just posted about my outing and how they went. I started like you (and many others I'm sure) years ago going out at night hoping no one would be around. And then one day I was driving somewhere in heels and I stopped at a store to get something and I kinda forgot I was wearing my heels. Withing the first 30 feet of walking into the store a younger woman complimented me on my heels. I was completely thrown off guard and I looked down and realized I was still wearing them. Told her thank you and quickly finished my shopping and left. Later to realize how much it doesnt matter that I was wearing heels. After that I started doing all my shopping in heels. Within a few months I was wearing skirt and pantyhose with mens shirts and jackets. To me they are way more fun than pants, more comfortable and alot of the times better looking! The only part that has been a problem for me is my girlfriend hates all of it. Which I've been struggling to get across to her that they are just clothes and why cant I enjoy them. She thinking I must be gay because of it, but those of us here know that isnt the case.. Good luck to you and keep trying to get out and about! It makes everyday things more exciting and enjoyable!
  12. Ultimately there are combined boots and trousers/pants such as: https://www.trendhunter.com/trends/tamar-mellon I've seen others in leather throughout (possibly synthetic leather) but can't find the links at the moment.. i think there was a complete "boot suit" in the past made by Atomage. All the way from boots up to the neck. Effectively a cat suit with intgerated boots.
  13. I'm not laughing Logjam, I have often thought of rubber high heel boots...Best of both worlds, classic nice fitting waders with a manageable heel...
  14. Yeah I really like tall boots, and the taller the better, but this is at the fringe of practicality. I think pairing leather pants and boots together could achieve the same effect more easily?
  15. I will stick with 2 to 2 1/2 inch heights, maybe 3 inches...... Thats works for me just fine.... have fun... sf
  16. Exactly! And I feel like there is even an aspect of physical freedom mixed in there. The mainstream view is that wearing heels is like wearing shackles on your feet that prevent you from walking or moving about. At extreme heel heights, this is true, but at more moderate heights, I find the feeling of walking and running about in 4” heels to be freeing, both in terms of expression and seeing the world around me from a slightly higher vantage point.
  17. Haha, I came in from choir rehearsal the other night wearing my newly purchased coat and hat (with boots over my pants, too!), and my wife, who was still at work when I'd left the house, said, "I need to start saving up money to send you to Thailand, so you can finish the job." I think she was joking. . .
  18. Oh, absolutely I think it applies, and probably moreso than for women. Those few of us men who wear heels do not do so because we feel we are obligated to, but rather quite the opposite. I can't think of a thing about wearing heels that isn't "freeing" in some way. Mentally and spiritually, of course, not physically. I can't be bothered to look this up, but wasn't that quote or quotes from quite a number of years ago? I'm not saying that he isn't still to this day against men wearing heels because I don't know, but I know that I have changed my mind about many things as I have aged, maybe he has too.
  19. Glad you like it! Don't alter the knee length skirt, just go and wear it! It may even pass as a "kilt" to some I found that going out at night, although comforting due to the lack of people, also made me feel I was creeping about a bit, so I decided to just bite the bullet, go to a grocery store and buy something, like some milk (I had ran out). You'll find few people will even react to your attire, and if any do, it's compliments! It takes balls for a guy to go outside the usual jeans or shorts look, there's a growing "genderfluid" trend of dress, with instagrammers like @joshohhgosh who frequently are skirted, or EJ Johnson. I wear regular guys shirts / tops, but a denim skirt instead of denim shorts. You have to show us your denim skirt look
