  2. Ok, So i have been into heels size 2017 and all my family know. When i go out in public, i usually wear a 3" Block Heel, my friend got me to whear the below heel (picture taken today) when i went out to a local Pub for dinner. These are a 3" heel Trainer. I was always way too nervious / shy to wear they type of heel in public. now i have done it, i want to do it again. Got to take my car tomorrow to BMW for a service, I plan on wearing them.

  6. The Re-Learning curve. I have been lazy for the 7 – 8 months and have been wearing my Steve Madden Estrellas everywhere. I just love these mules and even with the hundreds of miles these have seen, I not ready to give them. I can slide them on as I get out of bed. I even have another new pair in a box in the ‘Heel Library’. You can see from the photo below the contrast between the two pairs. But they are “short”, only a little over a 3.5-inch difference between the heel and the platform. However, we are expecting a period where we will be getting rain and the open toe just wont work. So, I pulled out a pair of black Nine West Kimy leather knee high today, see photo in boot thread. They have a 4.5-inch heel and no platform. That inch is significant since it been a while, I wanted to get use to them again. I plan to wear them to the doctor’s tomorrow (the front desk staff will go nuts.). So, I wore them to run some errands and then around the house for 4 more hours. By that time I was use to the height again. Below is a picture of my wine colored pair.

  9. Like many others here, I was young, probably 11-12, not only did I have mom's shoes but two older sisters. I only really played around and wore them for short periods when nobody else was home, but that didn't last that long. They didn't really fit me by the time I turned 13, and am not sure I was really hooked yet, it was a just fun little novelty at that point. It wasn't until about 2 years later, 14, maybe 15. It was my best friends sister, I had a huge crush on her, she was hot and wore fantastic 4 inch heels pretty much all the time. I had a lot of sleep overs at my friends house and occasionally had opportunities to check out her closet, try things on, etc. I wear women's size 10, and she had tons of pairs that were 9 and 9.5, many of which fit me just fine. She had one pair of 4 inch white pumps that I am sure she forgot about, they were buried in the back of her closet, buried under a mountain of other things and were scuffed and not in the best of shape and I thought, "she wouldn't miss these", so I ended up taking them home (not proud of that), but that was really my first pair of heels and I was hooked now. I still didn't have the courage to buy my own pair until I was probably 17 or so. I kept a pretty small collection/stash that I wore mostly in private until I met my future wife, about 10 years later, who was very understanding and open to my experimentation. Well, that opened the flood gates. I wear heels more often than not, and my collection now is really just excessive and I have a hard time keeping it from just getting completely out of control. She has occasionally expressed some unhappiness with it over the years, but for the most part she still supports my quirks

  12. Budget Ukrainian airline swaps high heels for trainers - BBC News It's amazing how much difference shoes make. To me, in this outfit, it is the difference between an airline uniform and a prison uniform.

  13. The way I figure it, you just never know what you'll run into around here, so it's best to wear wedges if there is any doubt, even though I'm not a big fan of wedges. They are practical in some situations. Of course, it would have been more practical to wear tennis shoes, or at least flat sandals, but one has to draw the line somewhere. I've a reputation to maintain in this town.

  16. The 'not-my-man" syndrome is very prevalent in society. I think many here have come across syndrome. I think it a sign of insecurity in that person, they worry what others think or would say. It's all about how others (women) will see them. I see women who say they want a confident man, but you must have confidence to wear heels in public. However, they don't see that as confidence. Double-double standard.

  20. I went out in heels for the first time in a long time wednesday . I had some spare time so I went to a local high street a bought a pair of 3.5 inch Cuban heeled boots . I changed into them straight away and went for a walk down the busy high street full of people wearing them. But no one took any notice of me at all even when I we t into some of the shops .

  21. Found these while browsing Nordstrom Rack. I had stopped going there as they severely reduced the inventory of heels in my size last year. I had a stop close by so I walked over to kill some time. Sure enough, there were no size 13's at all, & very few in size 12's, none of them I cared for. These caught my eye on the size 11 rack as I walked by them as the color quite stood out to me. I just got in a satin cowl neck blouse in that exact shade of orange & thought these wedges would have looked cute paired with the top. I started to leave when I thought I would try them just to see how the color worked with my skin tone. I was pleasantly surprised to find I could get my feet completely into them, with just a smidge of tightness across my toes. Checked the price & they were only $28, so I took them home. I wore them to dinner tonight & they felt pretty good, the snugness seems to have kept the strap from chewing up my toes, like most of my strappy heels do. Gonna try a longer outing & see how that goes, but so far these are a winner. Brand: BP. Giana Platform Wedge Sandal In Coral Camelia - 4" w/1" platform

  26. Since during World War 1, women became familiar with wearing trousers/pants as they took on the factory jobs to support the men they replaced so the men could be soldiers in the war efforts. It took about 40 years of women expressing and wearing the pants they wanted before society, as a whole, approved women wearing the pants men wore. However, before this approval happened, there were some socialites who disapproved of men and women wearing the same styled items. So these socialites forced the fashion industry to restyle, refabricate, and/or florally applique pants to rationalize and try to convince people that men and women weren't wearing the same items, even though both versions of pants covered the same areas and continue to have the same functioning purposes, with and/or without pockets. High heels also originated as footwear for European men as early as the late 1500's. Before this, Persian horse riding soldiers wore footwear with blocks designed and attached under the heels of their feet to better utilize and secure the stirrup supports as they rode and fought. The European men wanted to portray the look of bold maleness that the heeled footwear offered so they began to have the heeled footwear made for them too, even though most men didn't ride any horses. The look of heels also intrigued the desires of women who started wearing the heels men wore. This activity caused the homophobic socialites to oppose women wearing the heels of men, but the activities continued. Frustrated, these socialites began doing anything they could come up with to stop women from wearing the heels of men. An idea to restyle the heels for women to use only was initiated, but since heels were still considered men's footwear, men liked the sleeker designs and started wearing them also. This angered the socialites so much that they vowed and continued to pursue any possibilities to down play and get rid of high heels. With the reasons for the French Revolution and the Enlightenment Movement, the stage was prepared to cause the wearing of high heels to be socially banished and distained. Then the Industrial Revolution also helped to change the social atmosphere to the point men were forced to give up their high heels because of the revised and biased social perspectives of what real men and women are. For about 3 centuries, these social perspectives have been preached and programmed into the attitudes people are led to understand. The idea of men wearing heels has become so skewed that the ventures of men wanting to wear heels are seen as wanting to be and/or to look like women, even though for men it is really about men having the natural taste and desire to wear (high) heels, the same way they desired to wear the Persian footwear back in the 1500's.

  29. Thanks for your kind comments VirginHeels and pebblesf means alot to me for years i would wear a levi Jeans with a 30" Leg, when i first started wearing heels in public, i would wear a 32" Leg to hide the heel. When i told my family i decided i no longer had to hide the heels, so i went down to a 27" Leg jeans this causes the jeans to just sit nicely on top of the boot/ shoe and noot cover the heel at all. Again been doing that for the past year with the left block heel boot. I found when i was trying to hide the heel, i was always checking to make sure it was hidden. Now that the heels are aways on show, i do not have to try to hide it, i dont bother checking. lol My Missy Rockz Heels ( The middle ones) are 8.5cm Heels, i have 5 pairs with one of them a 10cm heel. Still getting used to that extra hight as it does feel odd, the 4" block heel on the right are very easy to walk in. I did walk in London once agian with 27" Jeans on. Ill post some more pics. One with todays upcoming outing to the BMW Service Centre, and one to show how my 4" Block heels look like with my jeans. The My Missy Rockz Heels ( The middle ones) do make the classic heel noise so does the 4" boots on the right. Todays shoe "Missy Rockz Heels" to BMW and straight to Tesco's to pick up some shopping Will let you know how i get on. I'm not taking any other shoes with me so cannot chicken out lol These are so comfy, I can walk for miles in these. Wow, it was pissing down really heavy so parked the car in the BMW Car park and had to run (in heels) pic below to the BMW Showroom. Non eventful, one guy noiced and then looked away Then went to Tesco with my partner, she was wearing flats lol, no problem at all. Think i have falling in love with these shoes. just a same it was raining so heavy.

  31. We have a Croc problem in our household, and I'm ignoring it for the sake of Domestic Tranquility. As many of you know, my wife is heavily invested in selling her product at two different farmer's markets. I believe that part of the secret to her success, other than making a product that people seem to actually want to buy, is that she presents herself differently than most vendors. She always wears a nice dress to these farmer's markets, never a t-shirt and jeans. And lately, Crocs. Luckily, they aren't really croc-y Crocs, but they are Crocs nevertheless. Before the Crocs, which I am sure she found at a thrift store for a few dollars, she used to wear these silver Bandolino sandals with everything, which she claimed were the most comfortable shoes she had. Of course, they were modern Bandolino, not vintage, so they were junk, and broke in rather short order. Which is too bad, because they were actually cute. I couldn't find a replacement for a price she wanted to pay, so I bought her some Söfft sandals in coral patent leather, identical to the pair that I have in nude patent, which I consider to be a very comfortable shoe, and I don't mean comfortable for high heels, I mean comfortable period. In the meantime, she has found these damned Crocs, and wears those for every market, rain or shine. Wants nothing to do with the sandals I bought her. I quit mentioning it, even though it drives me crazy to see her in her nice dresses. . . with Crocs.

  37. I bought a pair of Passion pumps from Asos, which like the Penelope has a 5" heel, but which unlike the Penelope was available up to size EU44. I had previously ordered a pair of Penelope's sized UK9 and they didn't fit so I had to return them. Seeing that these were on offer in a size larger made me order them. Plus they basically look like the Penelope just with a slightly longer point. Unlike the Penelope these fit, be it with a slight gap at the back. Which upon further examination became clear: They're size UK11, not the UK10 that I thought. Not that it matters much. The shoe fits quite snugly and I'm happy with it. And I dig the chocolate color.

  43. Here are my latest. They are Just Fab. They have a 4 1/2" heel. I found these in a thrift store, and they appeared to have been worn only once or twice. And they are super comfortable. And once I got them home and cleaned them up, the are basically mint condition! And the best part is I got them for less than 10 bucks!

  44. OK, well I think you are right, your brother is very insecure. He may "fear" that he has the same genes as you, and perhaps that might lead to wearing heels or the silly assumptions that usually goes along with it. Or, perhaps your brother is secretly envious, because he really wants to wear heels but just doesn't have the courage to do so..Either way, do your best to ignore him. Like I said, your partner sounds like a great lady indeed, must have learned tolerance and acceptance from her parents. They are secure, and want you to be you, and obviously feel you are a good partner. Finally, cut your friends a little slack...Surely, it is much easier to accept others that you have no relationship with...I don't know how to phrase this properly, so forgive my attempt: your heel wearing has no reflection on them. So, it is easy for them to be accepting. Having a partner or spouse who wears heels could be perceived as a reflection on themselves...Not at all fair, but understandable. Or, perhaps they would find it to be a complete "turn off", who knows. The important thing is that your friends are accepting and unafraid to be with you while you wear heels in public. Societal pressures and notions are hard to ignore sometimes.

  45. Hey you should see the god awful looking shoes my wife wears. It's up to us guys, Helen excepted of course, to keep high heels relevant. I still think men actually are better built to handle heels, typically stronger and better weight balance, i.e. no protuding fleshy things up top and forward of our support structure.
