Well it has been quite some time since I created a new blog entry, got busy with other things in my life that kept me away from writing. Hopefully now things are more sane and I will be more consistent in my writings. With that said, let me get on with this entry!
Perusing the forums I see that there is a wide range on how we wear our heels. Some wear them indoors, some out in public and some vary between those. So that set me to thinking about how I wear my heels.
For me, I wear my heels every day whether I go to work, shopping or out on the town. I feel very comfortable in my heels and I feel they make me feel more confident and proud. My heels complete my outfits (I wear mostly men's clothing adding in skinny jeans or jeggings when they fit the outfit).
In terms of what I wear in heels, that can range from 4 to 5 inch stiletto heels to a block heel on booties for winter. I prefer closed toe shoes over open toe as the open toe's sometimes gives me grief to my toes. I have to be very careful when I buy sandals or open toe pumps making sure that my fit is dang near perfect!
Since I participate a lot in the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes events, I have to be conditioned to walk the one mile course. When I first started to support that non-profit, I was beat by the time I walked across the finish line! It took some time to get in shape to master that distance. Now days if I have to walk a lot, I make sure to wear my most comfortable heels.
So my advise to guys or women is this. If you are going to walk a lot in your heels, know your limits! There is nothing worse than seeing a man or woman laboring to walk in their heels because they have not taken the time to strengthen their leg and ankle muscles or have done stretching to make their bodies more flexible. Don't get all misty eyed at those alluring 6"+ heels and rush out and buy them and then expect to be able to walk confidently and/or comfortably right out of the box. Won't happen. You'll just do what I did, hurting my foot when my one foot twisted as I fell wearing a pair of 7" stiletto heels! Did not look glamorous or confident when that happened but it did teach me a valuable lesson.
So here is what I would like you, the reader that is looking at this post, share how you wear your heels. I'd like to hear about other guys that wear heels and how they perceive how heels has bettered their life or added to their life.
Thanks for listening and as always, keep strutting those heels! Ciao!
