  1. Tina beautiful pumps, can you walk with them on? Just got these black pumps and burgundy D'Orsay's. The green pumps are the same as the black ones, had them for about 2 weeks. Incredibly comfortable with heels just shy of 5 inches. The brand is KRIS & JESSI. I got these from Aliexpress and can't be happier. The green pumps made a splash at Buffalo Wild Wings a week ago Thursday.

  5. Well, sometimes life grants you a second chance and "what might have been" becomes a reality. In my case i met her again. After my days work in Hannover was finished i took a taxi to a hotel and checked in. Got rid of my businessattire, took a shower, dressed more casually and went down to the hotelbar to take a nightcap. From the hallway, even before entering the bar, i saw a lady sitting there, short yellow summerdress and yellow slingbacks with a heel of about 5". She was like a flash of sunlight that late evening. When i entered the bar she just turned around towards the entrance. She

  6. I'll chime in and agree totally. I prefer classic stiletto boots also, with no platform...Those boots look great and are amazingly easy to walk in for sure....I love wearing my Sam Edelman stiletto boots, they look similar to these...My only issue is wearing out the heel tips quickly, I need to learn how to replace them myself...

  7. I’ll chime in here since no one has said they’d prefer a pair of boots yet. Growing up, the iconic style I remember was that of a black leather knee high boot with a chunky heel, rounded toe, and no platform. For some reason, that always stuck in my head as the must-have style. I don’t know that I saw them everywhere, but a handful of people I can recall had them, including my mom. That being said, if I had to pick one pair and one pair only, I’d probably continue that idea with a black leather knee high boot. And since it’s our fantasy, I’d love to have feet that fit into Chris

  8. Today, I'm going to share some information about shoe durability. Up to now, my most durable shoes had been my Söfft "Belicia" sandals, in which I walked a total of 107.5 miles, or about 173 km. I had to throw them away after that, because the strappy leather pieces had become so stretched out that not only did they look quite unsightly, but they just didn't fit well anymore. Among other things, my little toes would stick outside the straps, and we can't have THAT. Still, 107 miles on a pair of heeled sandals, AND. . . AND on the original, out-of-the-factory heels to boot. I've never seen an

  9. Another Sunday. Nothing too exciting to report, other than a couple of weeks ago I realized that I no longer have any "practical" dress shoes. They are all like the ones pictured or worse! I need to prepare for some of those days when I am feeling less than coordinated, or just flat worn out. I did buy some sub-4 inch pumps a little while ago, but they turned out to be too small. I can't hardly bring myself to buy short heels, but I really ought to, just in case.

  12. I did something last weekend that I haven't done in over a year. I attended a backyard barbecue. Well, we're all vaccinated now, so what the hell, why not? Other than breaking my phone while playing frisbee with the kids, a good time was had by all. The host of this event is a relatively new homeowner, and although I helped him move out of his apartment and into this house about a year ago, we'd never really had an "event" there until now. As it turns out, this fellow's sister was there as well (just for context, we're all somewhere around 50 years old, more or less), and the subject came

  16. I went to the Shoe Department Encore store yesterday with the intent to buy these: Penny by Impo. These are a bit out of my comfort range as the heel is higher than I typically can wear and they have a platform that I'm also usually not attracted to, but I wanted to challenge myself. Unfortunately, they were not comfortable as something was causing pain on the big toe of my right foot when I was walking in them in the store. So I thought it best to take a pass as I would not have been able to wear them very long, though maybe they would have stretched

  17. Hi All, saw this while still in Arizona and decided to answer. My interest in heels started early in 1971 when first trying them on. Bought my first pair in 1978, wooden sandals with a 4.5”/11.5cm chunky heel. I always had a general interest in women’s fashion as a contrast to men’s. Have enjoyed wearing heels with different outfits over the last decade or so. Perhaps it was part taboo and part liberating and expressive is what pulled me in and kept my interest. HappyinHeels

  18. Believe it or don't, I can actually get behind those boots 100%. Those are pretty hot! I mean, for something that covers up your foot that much. I have long quit wearing stilettos for actual walking just because the heels wear out so quickly. I know, I know, I can hear @Jkrenzer muttering to himself from 1,000 miles away, "That stupid son of a b**** has STILL not learned how to replace his own heels." It's true. I can't argue with that.

  20. I’m not also a big fan… but she likes them a lot. She gave me this pair and very frequently chooses them. I cannot complain for many reasons, but one of them is that they’re very easy to walk and dance… Here is a close up This pair of sandals are one of my favorites… and of course some boots… It’s crazy how she became such an enthusiast about my high heels wearing and pushes the boundaries with empathy and care.

  21. Well , folks more wedges for my collection . My wife told me , I had to many stilettos and to little space ...... can't really argue with that . I have gotten rid of 56 pair since our last "discussion" concerning this issue . Being the Jedi Master she is , I lost . Her big issue was : I wear more wedges than stilettos than pumps these days . So , in a trade , I managed to reduce my stiletto style pumps for some wedge styles I will wear more and save on space . So , all but , two pair of non wedges remain . She has nothing to complain about anymore . Dodged that light saber . So today two pair

  22. It was over a 3-month wait for the custom MJ boots, but worth it. I sent in my foot measurements, and they fit perfectly. I also much prefer this toe shape versus the pointed "sharp" toe, the overall look is slimmer. Now I'll have to plan what to order next - thinking something even taller...

  23. As far as women saying they wish they could wear heels, it's probably a bit like people who say they wish they could find time to write that novel. If they really wanted to, they'd find the time. And yes, people who are in small select communities can easily have a stilted view of the larger world. For example, it is rare to see somebody who is seven feet tall, but if you're an NBA coach you see them all the time.

  25. This was one of those times when I was innocently browsing ebay and happened to run across something that struck my fancy, and I said to myself, "Yeah, I'm probably going to have to have those." As I have become more financially stable over the years, this sort of thing happens a lot more often. Just a few short years ago, I wouldn't have even clicked on these because of their expense ($109 plus shipping), but as you people know, I have sort of a weakness for this wooden heeled style. I'm not really crazy about the bows, but it's impossible to remove them without completely destroying the vamp

Some of us would meet at am agreed location and wear our highest and finest heels . Have a dinner some where and talk about our favorite subjects . All were good meetings . At least they were for me .I would love to see that interest reestablished . Just saying .

  27. Finally had a chance to get some solid heeling in. Started with a trip to my nail tech. Got a set of black nails with a magnetic overlay & man are they gorgeous. I never cared much for black but last time i was in a lady was getting this style done, & I was really impressed by them. Afterwards I stopped by the hardware store as I needed some potting soil. I wore flats for these 2 stops as I cant fit under the tech's desk in heels & the last time I tried lifting heavy bags in heels it didn't end so well for my ankle. But I switched over to my Jessica Simpson black stilettos for the

  32. Such undertakings (long walks and long periods of standing) emphasize the importance of having and wearing well made and properly fitting shoes. You can’t achieve walking long distances or wear bad fitting footwear if you are contemplating spending a lot of time standing comfortably in high heels. A lesson that I learned from my mother.

  35. Funny this thread should pop back up again at this moment. I will be attending my 35th high school class reunion this summer, if there even is one, who knows what will happen. I do not have fond memories of my younger days, but those who grew up around me seem to remember me more fondly than I remember them. If only I had known how life was going to go, hell, I could have been wearing heels from age 18 and not have wasted 30 some-odd-years walking around in flats. AND, I probably could have avoided my ex-wife altogether! For those who may be wondering, it is recorded somewhere that I did

  36. i'm over here in the UK on a little modelling adventure and once safely tucked away at the club i looked up at the local tv and saw them advertising some silly little gizmo to shake the day out of your feet. one of the sales pitches was a gal going on about how she had to wear heels all day and how she looked forward to the end of her work day when she could kick her shoes off and get this gizmo going to work on her tired feet. then they cut to these gorgeous legs walking in with black 5 inch heel pumps on her feet! she kicked those off without any care and put her feet on this gizmo.

  37. It is fast coming up on my 9th anniversary of public heel wearing. I'm not sure of the exact date, but it was sometime in the first part of May 2012. In the year after that, I spent a lot of time pounding the pavement at night (not a practice I recommend for everyone) learning how to walk in heels. In retrospect, it has taken me nearly 9 years to really accomplish this, and evidently I still have my limits. In an attempt to raise those limits, I decided this morning to walk 5 miles in heels, or 8 km. It is not the first time I have done this, in fact it's the third time, but it's been qui

I suppose there is sometimes value in being incompetent. In much the same way that you never, EVER want to admit to anybody that you know how to finish concrete. The Big farmer's market starts May 6. My wife, bless her heart, is shooting for the stars with sales expectations. She has rolled over 3,000 egg rolls in the past 10 days or so, and that number continues to climb, until we run out of space in

  39. Yes, they have been around for a long while, and I'm really tired of seeing them (of course I already said I didn't like them to begin with). And the style has gone downhill as in the beginning they were high slim heels as your niece is wearing in the photo to now being low blocky crap. I'm just really depressed at where ladies footwear is headed. I know my time on this planet is limited, and it's depressing to think that I may never really see heel wearing return to common practice. Of course, quite honestly, I doubt it ever will return to be common, every day practice. The strength of t

  40. Nice, well done. I have plenty of very so called "femme" heels. I'll Never get rid of them. Ran into a coworker factory guy in an auto parts store today. I wasn't wearing heels this time but he stated he loved my purchase at the grocer yesterday. I didn't see him, but loaded up on 6 different types of beer all the while in my leapord 5 inch stilettos. Kinda nice a day later to be complimented on something totally random in stilettos with no mention of the stilettos. Mind you, this guy is not someone I see on a regular basis or deal with at all. He recognized me way before I him. Honestly

  41. I see that one of their main targets for expansion is Asia. Although I have often touted the frequency of heel wearing in Asia, the awfulness of the opposite side of the footwear spectrum is much, much worse than anything we have here in the U.S. I am thinking of any number of awful rubber sandals that are really designed to be house slippers, and probably for guests at that, but people wind up wearing them on the street all the time. In this case Crocs would actually be an improvement, or at least merely a step sideways. I do admit to having tried on a pair and walked a few steps in them
