  2. Hi folks! New member from Germany here, in fact we are a married couple in retirement with a love for high heels and taking pictures. We have been around the german high-heels-scene quiet a while, but the scene is slowly vanishing and we are looking for a new home. This may be the place for us, so we will give it a try and see what happens.

  3. For those of you who complain that I never wear boots, here you go. It didn't kill me after all, though I didn't realize how scrunched up my jeans had gotten from getting in and out of the car several times. That's definitely a downside to knee high boots. Also, I probably need to replace the boots I'm wearing, or at least do some work on them. They're getting rather raggedy looking if you look too closely.

  4. Not much to journal about lately. Mostly short outings to pick up groceries or restaurants for take aways. Mostly the same odd compliments on my heels or nails. One amusing moment a few weeks back while browsing through the produce section in my Jessica Simpson nude pumps, two teen ladies turned the corner & one of them fairly shouted "OH MY GOD!". Startled though I was, I think she was more embarrassed about her outburst. She sheepishly whispered "Those heels are so cute" as she walked by. I got quite a chuckle out of that. Last week I got a chance to wear my new white heels I got from Ma

  5. First time out in heels today. The confidence boost and power you feel with heels, even if mine are a tad on the low side, on is amazing. I now see why folk were pushing me towards 3, 3.5 or even 4 inches. I can now see why women get what do they call it, “bad bitch” energy, and “boss bitch” vibes. Wont be long before I’m pushing for higher heights once I’ve got full confidence and security. I don’t see a slender stiletto being much of a issue as well. Cannot wait to get out and about in them again soon. Maybes when I get the letter to go get my first vaccine.

  6. After getting back from Washington, I couldn't wait to finish the 8th grade. It took my body a couple weeks to recover from the daily grind of teeter-tottering around Washington... the aches and pains in my feet, legs and back lingered. I retired my original pair of stilettos from Wild Pair and began alternating between my new black pair and whit pair. Although they were new, they felt like slippers because I wasn't on my feet 8 to 10 hours a day. That summer was one of the hottest summers on record. It seems like everyday was in the 90's! I wanted to get a pair of high heel sandals

  9. I agree with your sentiments 100% Chorlini. It is rare to see stilettos out and about these days, especially for daily wear. I am the odd ball out in that I wear 5 inch stilettos daily and have since I was 13! I have been detailing my heel wearing in the stories I'm posting under Stories with a High Heel Theme. I have to get back to writing! Yes, 4 inch heels get up in the slutty, bedroom territory these days. It wasn't always so back in the 1980's when I came of age to wear heels. I still love the look and feel of my stilettos and yes, I do get stares, double-takes, and even comments ab

  15. mlroseplant asked, "I don't mean to be a jackwagon, but I have some questions. Maybe they are uncomfortable questions. You say that you wear high heels exclusively. You don't own flats. Evidently, you never walk barefoot, either. However, despite 35 years of constant practice, you still find heels uncomfortable, and can't walk in them properly. As a person who aspires to wear very high heels more often, am I wasting my time?" Let me start by reassuring you that you're not a jackwagon. The questions you ask are fair and I'm willing to answer them. As I stated in my stories,

  17. I find the gallery part of this site, and uploading photos there too jumping-through-firey-hoops to work around so I'm putting photos of my new red boots from Luxury Fetish Heels here. The heel is 6 inches, but the shoe is shorter than my pleaser stiletto boots.

  22. I live in the north suburbs of Chicago, Would go to Chicago all the time either by car or train to wander and have fun. Train was always interesting since you are kinda held captive on an hour ride for everyone to look at you and stare or even ask "whats with the skirt and heels?"

  23. I agree with that sentiment. Although I've worn shorts and high heels for my whole life in the summer, only the last 10 to15 years have I not been given that, "What street corner does she work on?" look at times. Looking back, seeing a 13/14 year old in shorts and 4 1/2 inch heels must have been a shocker! Again, thanks to my mother for allowing me to be me and express myself. Looking back, had I known the reputation of shorts and stilettos, I may have chosen not to wear shorts no matter how hot it was... but the high heels would have stayed.

  24. I was thrilled to be going to high school and wore my Candies sandals to school as it was still quite warm out. I lived only about 1/2 mile from the high school so there was no bus pick-up. I either got a ride from my parents, friends, or I had to walk to high school along with my brother. He was eligible for his license when he turned 16 and I could hardly wait for him to get his license for a free ride to school. I knew I would be meeting new kids, as we had two middle schools and one high school in our town. I was a little nervous but looking forward to meeting my new classmates. I no

  26. Get real! Anything and everything you say or do these days is going to offend someone. So, do your thing and tell those that don’t like it to go scratch their mad place! I wasn’t put on this earth to knuckle under to everyone else’s likes or dislikes.

  27. I think that you guys that are saying you don't see many women wearing heels anymore are not in the right places. A few weeks ago I attended a church funeral for a deceased 61 year women, who was in the real estate business. It was a crowded church and I saw that social distancing was not being observed but masks were being worn. In spite of the fact it was snowing outside, maybe 1" on the pavement, I saw many women wearing either heeled boots, booties and pumps. Many were wearing stiletto heels. Being the deceased was a professional woman, 90% of the attendees were very sharply dressed inclu

  30. It's been awhile since I've posted, so I think it's time for a little update. I managed to get out tonight for the first time probably since my last post. I wore some black leggings with my black aldo booties (sorry no pictures) went out shopping! Nordstrom, dsw and a few other small stores, I didn't end up buying anything but I was very delighted to see the shelves weren't empty! For the first time since covid started the shelves were full and I could actually shop. Was a short fun outing cant wait for the next one!

  31. In fall 2019 I took a leap and bought the leopard print sherpa shown elsewhere. Its been an unbelievable purchase. It's warm and comfortable. I get lots of double takes Today I wore it to do some shopping. At Costco 3 men complimented me on it. The male exit checker at Costco wanted to know how I could walk in heels. I laughed. Then at a drug store, a woman leopard print fan and I had a conversation about leopard prints and masks (I had a leopard print mask on too). She ended it with "Now all you need is a pair of leopard print heels."

  33. Looks great to me. I have that issue sometimes with the jeans. I supposed skinnier jeans or leggings would be better. I have also seen girls tuck their jeans into their socks, maybe that's a quick and easy solution? Anyway, the boots look suits you!

  34. So cool, haven't gotten any compliments in awhile...Except the other day, while passengers were boarding my flight, a young guy said: "nice boots sir".... I looked down quickly, he had a nice pair of cowboy boots as well, I told him I like his boots as well. Oh well, was only wearing my Tony Lamas, but was happy to have a compliment. I was very careful to spot the fellow while deplaning and said: "take care of those nice boots buddy....". My coworker looked at me strangely, I advised her that us boot guys are a tight knit group indeed...

  36. I tried these on at Nordstrom Rack today. Sam Edelman Adaline sandals. They fit my forefoot better than anything I've tried on in quite some time. Unfortunately, they were white, very strappy, and higher than I am comfortable wearing, which means the chances of me ever wearing them in public were nil. The description says heels are 4", but I know I can handle 4", and these felt considerably higher than that. Too bad. Even if I had more opportunity to just wear them at home I probably would have bought them at the $59 price, but it just didn't make sense.

  37. This is my first purchase for the 2021 heeling season . Last year around this time Torrid had the same style out in Blush and Black . Unfortunately , they were sold out of the Black so I decided to go with the Blush . This year they reintroduced them again in Black so I had to snatch another pair . I have both Black and Blush now . These Espadrilles are really comfortable to walk in and they do run a little on the large size . In comparison to the Payless Brash Espadrilles , I had to size down one whole size with the Torrid to a size 11 W from the normal 12 W from Payless . I can wear these al

  38. Most places in the US are generally safe. The larger cities always have areas that you just stay out of, more so after dark. South side Chicago is a bad place to be. I have a nephew that works in the south side. 100% white guy, and he is working the ghetto everyday. He said it was pretty scary at first, the only white guy for blocks, but he claims the "hood" has gotten used to him and leave him alone. Plus he does have a carry permit. i live in a metro area of about 250,000 people and up to a few years ago you never worried abut being out after dark. Today I don't care to be in many areas

  41. Yes, you sound like you were a genuinely nice kid - that really comes across, and that niceness and innocence, coupled with the supportiveness of your mother and teachers really makes your story a pleasure to read; a genuine feel-good story. I have a somewhat similar attitude to my own liking for heels. If at the end of the day the worst thing anybody could say about me was that I liked to wear high heeled boots, then I won’t really have done so badly

  42. Going on the class trip to Washington, D.C. was really a make or break time in my life with regards to wearing stiletto heels daily. I had suffered through my 8th grade year in my stilettos. (I later learned that the Wild Pair shoes I was living in were really special occasion shoes and not meant to be worn all day, every day!! But I was inexperienced.) I had worn my shoes down pretty well and they had plenty of wear and tear on them. The top of the shoe wasn't scuffed too badly and a little black shoe polished worked wonders on them. But the soles of the shoes were wearing thin and the metal

  44. I love your pluck and determination - and am so relieved on your behalf that you were surrounded by such kindly and wise adults such as your teacher and your mother. That’s a lovely part of the story too. I also love the honesty and clarity with which you tell your story. And, yet again, you tell it very well in a highly readable style.
