  5. Just my normal summer look. Today at the grocery. As always plenty of looks and at least two women snapped images, one at the meat counter and another at the gas station. The 2nd one's husband went into the store. I followed about 25 feet (8 meters). He mafe it a point to hold open the door for me. Kinda cool, and clearly obvious he wanted a better longer look. Cool with me, I'm not expecting to be unnoticed in red stilettos and shorts. Sorry for the pic quality, reduced images on my phone.

  8. Just had these Naturalizer Callie Boot in within the last hour. A great stretch for me from my 2.5” Cubans, these are 4 inch, the specs say they are 3.5” with a .5” platform, the size 12US/9UK/42EU is closer to that elusive and brilliant 4inch number. They are comfortable, you don’t feel as if it’s a heel you are wearing, really good footbed if a few millimetres too narrow, not a deal breaker. Only issue is that the tounge doesn’t stay in place when pouring your feet in to them. The leather wrapped heel is a lovely addition to a killer boot. The reviews I read were correct, they fit a half size larger. It’s how short your stride becomes at that 4 inch marker. Stunning boot for the fall/winter. Will look great with some jeans, t shirt and a long down coat or a trench coat I have coming. I worried about the sizing, now I don’t have to worry, I can wear this size with socks. Will now be looking at other Naturalizer boots, and other companies. I’m attending a wedding in April and want a nice pair of shoes/boots for that!!!

  9. I will say the sales people at Jimmy Choo stores have been very friendly and have been happy to let me try pairs on if they have my size (40 pumps, 41 boots). I have a few pairs of both that are quite comfortable, but I usually get them for about 1/5th MSRP used.

  11. I have been wearing the boots with 4” heels around a bit now, but since we are working from home I haven’t been able to put in some extended time in them until this week. I went to an out of town conference and put in about 70 hours on this boots in 4 days. There really is something magical about that 4” heel height threshold that changes the overall look. The shoes started more conversations than anything I have worn with 3.5” heels, and people commented or asked how tall I am, despite being a relatively normal 6 feet tall without heels. And they feel so great to wear too. 3.5” feels so normal to me now, and that little extra stretch to 4” is a noticeable and nice feeling on the feet.

  21. I posted back in May, 2019 that I bought these sandals for $19.95, regular $168. I said at the time I wouldn't have much chance to wear them but recently I have had several opportunities, just around the house. The 5" heel took a little getting used to but all is fine now. These are the highest and most feminine shoes I own.

  22. I drive quite a bit in my heels. Hasn't been a problem for me. The only time I have had a shoe issue while driving was when I was driving in flip flops of all things. I went from the gas to the brake pedal & the damn sole got caught in the carpet & folded in half, preventing me from getting firmly on the brakes. Ended up bumping into a towed trailer in front of me at the light. Didn't hurt the trailer a bit but put a nasty 4 foot long ding in my front cover along with a crack. Wont be doing that again, will stick to my 5" stilettos...

  26. Sorry to be overly repetitive, but here are some more farmer's market pictures from yesterday. It was supposed to rain all day, but it didn't, instead. Turnout was impressive, my wife was going 100 miles an hour for the entire four hours. That pleases her, but at the same time exhausts her. No mention was made of my shoes by anyone. I'm sure, as always, that people noticed, but to be quite honest, this is a big enough gathering that there are always several people who are dressed far more outlandishly than me. I did see quite a few heels this time. By quite a few, I mean probably half a dozen, including one woman wearing shorts with her 3 inch block heeled sandals. My boring outfit: Sandals are Söfft Calvados, shorts are l.e.i., shirt is just a t-shirt, as always. Sunglasses are from Costco, and are equipped with trifocals. That is not a joke.

  27. To be fair, I have been enjoying my lower height heels this summer, chronicled somewhere up there in the feed. I have discovered that I get a different thrill from wearing my lower heeled sandals, and I'm not sure exactly how to describe it. It is certainly a different feeling from that of simple elevation of the heel. In other news, our family actually went out to a restaurant for the first time since early 2020. What to wear, what to wear? None of what took place is noteworthy, but I did remember to snap a picture of what I did wear. Ann Taylor shorts in pink, obviously not too short and not too tight. I evidently went on a shorts buying rampage pre-pandemic, then promptly put most of them in a drawer and forgot about them. I'm trying to break them back out as circumstances allow. I paired the shorts with Nine West "Dancecard" sandals in a sort of dusty rose color, which I thought went pretty well with the shorts. Stats on the sandals are 5 1/4" heel with 1" platform. I seem to have an awful lot of shoes that follow that formula within 1/4". Apparently I must like it. Oh, and that works out to just about 40º steepness, though I might have to recheck my measurements upon which I'm basing that calculation, because it sure does appear to be quite a bit more than 40º in the accompanying photo. As usual, I tend to worry about what I'm wearing from the waist down more than the waist up, and yesterday was no exception. I've got on a t-shirt from Walmart, nothing fancy, and just a regular old black belt. Absolutely zero comments from the crowd at the restaurant, and while I'm sure there were some stares, I did not detect them, or possibly I just didn't care. Our waitress was cute, friendly, and efficient. We gave her a big tip. I should say my wife gave her a big tip. In a Vietnamese family, the man is never supposed to pay, that would be in bad taste. Don't ask me why, I only know that it is so.

  28. I'm in high heels almost every time I go out and even around my house. As a result I get comments about once or twice a week. Last week it was while waiting in line at the Post Office when a woman several people behind me told me she loved my wedges. Today I was pumping gas (petrol) when a car drove into the adjacent aisle. I could tell that the passenger was talking about my shoes to the driver. After the driver got out to pump their gas, the passenger lower her window and told me how much she just loves my heels. I smiled and thanked her.

  30. I would suggest that you wear plenty of high heels, these lovely mules included. This pair pictured is one of two pair I wear at my desk at work, yess coworkers are aware, and as seen the incline is between 50 to 60 degrees. The heel height is right at 5 inches. On my size 10 shoe that may be about 4.75 on your size 8, I'm a bit jealous. I pulled 40 degrees out of air, but the angle is based more on the triangle from the ball of your foot to your heel an back down to the floor. For me a 40 degree angle from the ball of foot to my heel is about 4.2 inches based on 5 inch length.

  31. I have no idea what the degrees of my shoes were, so I did a little math. The ones pictured above, which are an effective 3 inch heel, put me at 27º. To get 40º, I'd need an effective 4 1/8 inch heel. To get 45º, I need about 4 5/8 inches, which is really pushing it for me. I did this figuring that the distance from the ball of my foot to my heel is pretty darn near 6.5 inches. Speaking of high heels, I think my patience has finally paid off, and I'm rather glad of it, considering the money I have spent on these silly shoes. You may recall that I bought these D & G mules some time ago. They came all the way from Russia. All the cool shoes are in Russia, it seems. I wasn't disappointed when I got them, but they were a little tight. OK, a lot tight. But, after spending over 100 bucks on acquiring them, I wasn't going to give up so easily. I put them in the shoe stretcher, very gently and gradually, and got to where I could slip them on in less than five minutes, and without soaking my feet in ice water first. When I got them to where they would fit well enough, I then realized two more problems: 1) I couldn't really walk in them, and 2) even if I could walk in them, the stupidly thin leather sole looked as though it would last about 500 meters. I am happy to report that I have solved both problems, one by throwing money at the problem (sole protectors), and the other by simple practice. I actually took these for a spin in public for the first time yesterday, to the grocery store. Not only did I not feel particularly self conscious, I also found them to be considerably more comfortable than I expected, as I continued wearing them for some time after I returned home.

  32. Last week at the big farmer's market, I was getting ready to unload. This particular market takes place on a weeknight from 4-8 p.m., and is on a main city street, which is closed off to regular traffic from 3:15 until it's time to pack up and go home. It's always a bit of a zoo getting in and out of there, and if you need two vehicles, as we do, it can be a bit of a problem figuring out where to put the second vehicle while you're unloading it. It just so happened that the vendors directly adjacent to my wife were already there when we got there, but the spots across the street were completely vacant. I figured I'd just pull over there, dump everything out of the trailer, and get the extra car and trailer out of there. Wouldn't you know it, just as soon as I got the tailgate off the trailer, this guy in a pickup rolls up and slows down. I gestured to him in the way of asking if he needed me to move, I figured I was in his spot. It turns out that wasn't the case at all. I'm guess he actually was another vendor somewhere, or he shouldn't have been allowed in there, but he stopped, rolled down his window, and asked, "Are those high heels?" My first reaction was, "What a stupid question!" But I didn't say that. I paused just a beat, and said, "Actually, these are low heels for me, but as you can see, I've a lot of heavy stuff to unload. They're more practical." He also paused a beat, raised his right hand, and I could recognize by his body language that he wanted me to high-five him. I did so, and he said, "That's awesome, man!" and drove off. I really do not know what that encounter was really all about, perhaps I shall run into the same man this week. In any case, I soon forgot about it and went about my business. I wasn't even sure if it was worth a mention here, but it's kind of a slow week, so I figured what the heck. In case you're wondering, I was wearing the following shoes, which I consider to be my "low heels." I've shown you my super low heels for the farmer's market on the grass, these are my standard go-tos for the street farmer's market. I was wearing them with some light brown (not tan or khaki) dressier shorts. By dressier, I mean that the back pockets are concealed, chino style. They are not super tight, but they are definitely on the short side. I suppose I shall have to take a picture someday. Not today.

  36. Hi Femininefeet! I'm glad you enjoyed reading my story and thanks for the good wishes, they mean a lot to me right now! To answer your first question: kinda yes, but also kinda no; it's not much different than in the US, I assume. You can walk in heels as a guy on the streets mostly with no issues, but you'll definitely going to get a lot of attention from other people. Most people will just look at you and think "Hmm, that's a weird guy, why does he do that, does it make him feel good..." without actually saying anything bad to you. Other times, you'll see people shaking their head upon seeing you or -in good cases- smile at you. Only in the worst of the worst cases you'll encounter people shouting homophobic slurs at you or start a fight with you (thankfully, that has never happened to me). It really comes down to when you go out and what neighbourhood you're exploring. And people indeed aren't really tolerant with LGBT-communities and with regular "cross-dressers" alike, especially the 45+ year old audience who grew up during the communist era in a very different world. Back then, stuff like this was completely illegal and thus unheard of. Younger folks who grew up in the 2000s and 2010s are more tolerant with this topic. German retailer Deichmann is the only store (that I know of atleast) that sell size 43+ womens' shoes here in Hungary. So, if you don't like what they're offering, the only option you have is to order shoes Online from abroad. I do buy shoes at Deichmann and order from the PRC (China) in tandem; physically going to the store is more convinient for me, while the selection is siginificantly larger Online, like on AliExpress. I have a lot of female friends with larger feet and even they complain that they can't find shoes in their size, so it's definitely a negative. Definitely going to share pics in the coming weeks and months, stay tuned!! Best wishes!

  38. So high heels woman buy a woman are ok, but if worn by a man not ok? What are appropriate heels? Who defines appropriate? "Well your honor, the heels go with my skirt, so I believe they are appropriate!" Really a vague law!

  40. I wonder if anyone has been asked to do a field sobriety test while wearing high heels. I'd want to pass wearing heels lol. More generally, if anyone uses high heels as evidence against being in control of my vehicle, I have a youtube channel of me racing and driving thousands of miles in heels that might be counter evidence...

  43. The last company I worked for I drove a lot. When I left that company my 17 month old vehicle had 80,000 miles on it. I always had a pair of heels with and would wear them often while driving. I would bet, on the average, I drove well over 20,000 miles a year in heels. I am very comfortable with it. This did come up some time ago nd some thought it was dangerous to do so, but I contend it is like learning anything. At first there maybe some risk, but the risk drops a lot as experience increases. Most of us couldn't walk in heels at some point, but most of us don't even think about it now. Like anything, practice make perfect. My wife has even commented on how natural it is for me to wear heels compared to when I first started. While driving wearing heels I have been in a couple near collisions, but had zero issues getting my feet to do what was required of them at the time.

  44. I got good news. I visited the shoe boutique in town the other day. The manager came over to talk with me. She knows that I want at least a 4 inch difference between the toes and the heel. They only had one model in that range but not in my size. But here's the good news. Since our state is opening up a bit and women are going back to work, she said that the women have been asking for heels again. So the next shipment they have already ordered will have a lot more heels, higher heels. I hope you see this trend in your neck of the woods.

  45. Nice experience you had. It is good to get out in high heels. I do quite often, and it has been a long time since anyone has said anything, and that's fine with me. Other than the infrequent "walk a mile" events, I have yet to ever see another guy wearing high heels. It is a lonely life - ha ha, but I love it. Smile and have fun... sf
