  1. I thought I'd open a new thread about conversing with ones children about our heels - based on a short dialog recently in @mlroseplant's thread, as well as a comment made by one of my daughters this week. Feel free to jump in with comments, thoughts and stories. So yesterday, we were doing some clothes shopping for the family - me, my wife and the girls. After my wife tried on some low heeled sandals she saw and liked (but didn't get!), the one daughter (age 12) asked her if she (the daughter) can start wearing heels, to which my wife replied an immediate "NO!" - which I approved of

  2. I (we) have daughters that are now all growed up with their own kids. Since before the kids and wife, I have worn gals flat sandals and heels. When the kids showed up nothing much changed. I did decide NOT to wear (higher) heels around the girls and their friends, I did not want them to be made fun of at school. However, I did and still wear low heels, less than one inch, around them. They were aware that I wear high heels and saw my sandals around the house all the time. Once my youngest asked me (when the wife was present) why does daddy wear high heels? I just told her that those are

  3. hiddenheels, You've received some good advice here but that's the purpose of a site like this one. I think each of us has gone through some sort of mental process to figure it out until many of us realised we weren't doing anything wrong and just decided to "get on with it" as many would say in the U.K. Get on with enjoying your life and not limiting yourself by artificial restraints. I bought my first heels in 1978 in a Kresge store going out of business and have been buying heels nearly exclusively in-person at store like Macys, Nordstrom Rack, Bakers (when it was around) , Aldo, and Ch

  5. I sometimes wonder what kind of dad I'd be to a daughter. Since I don't have one, I guess I'll never know. I suppose it would mainly depend upon the wife. My older son's mother was a bit of a helicopter parent, and certainly wouldn't allow him to do anything even marginally risky until he was nearly in high school. My younger son's mother (my wife) is pretty much the opposite. My younger son made it through infancy playing with scissors, plastic bags, and 5 gallon buckets that had a little bit of water in the bottom of them. He was mowing the lawn by the time he was 5. So if I had a daughter,

  6. When my daughter was 7- 9 years of age , she asked my wife why she has some size 8 and some size 12 shoes . My wife told her some were Daddy's and left it at that . I did catch my daughter trying to walk around the house in mine once . My wife asked if it would be okay to find her some small heels in her size . She did find some low heels cheap at the secondhand shop in town . She wore them around the house and by the time she had outgrown them it was time for her own pair of heels 21/2 " area or a little lower . My son on the other hand wanted to see if he liked wearing heels around the

  7. I carry a cross body bag when I wear leggings and skinny jeans. I have no problem at all with that and get some compliments on my Vera Bradley bags with my initials embroidered on the bag. The bags were gifts from my daughter, who said if your going to carry a bag dad, you have to do in style! And I do carry a cross body bag when wearing men's pants and my heels, too. I also like carrying wristlet bag. Happy Heeling, bluejay

  8. I glad I past that point. My youngest is 26. She knows I wear heels and color my nails. She is not thrilled that I wear heels all the time, but she has stopped complaining about it. She use to also complain that I color my nails, but she and my Ex liked my nail colors so much that they got the same ones for themselves.

  11. You, like many of us, have fallen victim to the underlying subliminal messages that society loves to dump on us. There is nothing wrong with wearing heels wherever you feel comfortable doing so... We have all done similar things, wearing heels at night, at secluded areas, etc. We do this because we are nervous about wearing our heels publicly, but desperately want to wear them out of the confines of our homes.. Ground surface is a major concern for me when wearing my boots. Jagged sidewalks, tile/sippery floor surfaces, all spell trouble for heel wearing. Carpeted or hard surfaces that a

  12. It's been a while... August was busy, both in terms of "life" and "heeling". Found time to go to the movies once, in 4" block heels, dark jeans, it wasn't busy so noone cared. I was loving it. Have also bought some nice shoes along the way. Recently bought a nice pair of boots, 4" heel, but 1" soles which are a bit thick. Aside from the heels, they could pass for guys shoes. Of all places, Walmart, as I accidentally saw them. Very comfortable, barely can feel the lift, and they almost feel like regular guys shoes. I got so excited about the boots that I went to a coffee shop to do my work

  13. I have been lazy this summer. I have always said that wearing very high heels successfully is like doing ballet or playing an instrument. If you don't practice, and practice efficiently and effectively every day, you lose something. I re-discovered this yesterday. It's not that I haven't worn heels this summer, but I've not walked very far in them, and typically my heel choices have been low-ish (for me) wedges. So when it came time to break out the truly high heels again, I should have thought my shoe choice out a little better. I was drafted to fill in for some instrumentalists in a cou

  14. Nice! Cool that you both can share your affinity for heels. I’m the main heel-wearer in my family, due to some medical things for my wife, but at least she hasn’t made me get rid of them! Happy Hallow-heeling to you both! My new boots from Shoedazzle, with women’s skinny jeans . . . and with men’s.
