    For me, I care if they are women's styles. For me, it's the fact they're stereotypically associated with femininity that provides me wearing value. Without that association with feminine value, the initial attraction to the wearing experience loses it's value. For me, wearing accessories and clothing that women recognize as being only for women routinely elicits responses of positive intrigue from women. Girls see the accessory on me. Then they feel great. They feel like they feel when they wear it themself. This type of value is losing it’s value in my life though. There is a lot more to life than seducing new women. For me, binary gender stereotypes in clothes is what creates part of the value of wearing heels and styles exclusively associated for women. The stereotypes that strengthen binary gender is what creates for me the inner responses of feeling feminine, feeling admirable, feeling desirable, feeling beautiful, feeling like I imagine a woman feels when I’m attracted to her. I don’t expect it’s the same for everyone.

    Stumbled on this site just over a year ago and been a member for a while.I'm inspired by some of the members here past and present from reading their stories,seeing their pics and public outfits.My shoe collection keeps growing and becoming a little addicted now. I have been wanting to go public or at least get outdoors for sometime now, and wishing wont make that happen But I eventually got outdoors in heels. For the past few days I've been planning on my first outing on Friday night in central London. After meeting up with my friend i had a choice to either go home or face my fear and wear my heels which i brought with me. I stayed out and went to one of the major public parks which was pretty much empty. After 20 - 30 mins of being stuck in my head i got my Kurt Geiger booties out of my bag,got changed and started walking. And soon realised how much harder it is to walk with heels outdoors than at home.After walking around the park for several minutes I changed into my platform-less Simi stilletos which where easier to walk in. I walked around the park for 20 mins stopping a few times to sit down. Eventually I got near the road which was a little busy and without hesitation I started walking on the footpath next to the road. My heels where fully exposed (so where my booties earlier) as i was walking next to the road, and both my face and heels were visible to cars driving in the opposite direction. It felt good but I was nervous. After several minutes I got back into the park through another entrance. Nearly bumbed into a few people during my time there who could have noticed my footwear even at night, but Im sure some heard the sound. A few times part of me also wanted someone to notice me as a guy in heels, haha. Overall it wasn't a dramatic expirience compared to the early stories of others but for me it was about taking the initial step of getting outdoors and eventually making it a habbit. Since Im going to be heeling at night for now (when its darker and less busy in general), i dont mind my heels being exposed. A few times before i reached the road I wanted to call it a night as my legs were tiring but I'm glad I kept pushing my comfort zone and walking a little further with my heels exposed knowing i could potentially bump into someone at somepoint. Cant wait until Sunday night. Wont be wasting much time in the park this time, but only to get changed. I want to walk next to the road,residential areas and streets for longer, slowly pushing my comfort zone each time I go out. I will post some pics of my collection soon.

    Congrats. Did you ever go to Parc in Rittenhouse Square? Sunday brunches are reasonably priced (you might need a reservation). Safe spot for freestyling for sure.

    I just had a similar experience with a Chinese company that markets shoes on Amazon called Sunetedance. I ordered a pair of green patent, chunky heel pumps in my normal size 11. I bought other shoes from other Chinese manufacturers and had no sizing problems. When the shoes came they were so small, I couldn't even get my foot in the shoe. They were nice looking shoes, so I tried to return them for a larger size. They wanted me to send a picture of the shoe on my foot. I told them their sizing was way off. They offered me a larger size for an additional $15.00 charge and I wouldn't have to send the pair that was too small back to them. I thought that was fair deal, until I posted a review of their shoes and their sizing problem. I only gave them 1 star. They responded to me that they would ship another pair to me for free if I would give them a better review. I took them up on that. I ordered a size 12.5. When I got them they fit perfect. Now I'm gonna update my review to maybe 3 or 4 stars, as the shoes are very comfy and I like the style and the color. I guess they were afraid with my one star review, that their sales would drop. LOL. The old story with the squeaky wheel holds true here! Happy Heeling, bluejay

My GF says I can sure “work it”!!!! Thx for the compliment!!!! Cali, Express only goes up to a size 10. I am an 11 so I can’t really help on that question. I have not even bought shoes for my GF at Express and she is a size 7. CAT LETS GO!!!!!!!!!!

    All too true, it seems! If you look at almost any Chinese shoe seller's website, it will usually quote Eu sizes but also give the intended foot length. Generally, the Eu size is overstated by several numbers in comparison with the stated length, so it is safer to go by the length if ordering - assuming that the length has been stated accurately of course. So, likely to be somewhat of a gamble! I don't speak from much experience in ordering from China, but my one recent purchase proved the above. A pair of flat sandals I bought (through Amazon) only had lengths quoted up to UK11 (said to be 11.4" - a good 0.6" too short for a true UK11) but the size increments suggested that the Eu52 (the largest size available!) would be about 12.1" and this proved correct and an almost perfect fit for length, if still a tad narrow. On the same point, why is it that often a supplier will say that a particular shoe '... comes up small, so please order one size larger'? Honest and helpful, but surely it would make more sense for the outlet to re-size the shoes, in its adverts at least, if not also on the shoe itself?
