    So I have been reading all of the comments about wearing heels in public and how to do it and what to wear. I have been going to some low end box stores and wearing really long pants to hind my pumps. I really like to wear very thin stilettos. I feel the pants mostly hide them and I avoid people the best I can in the store and then make a dash for the door when it is clear. Look at my phone and go about my business. So this has been working, no confrontations or anything, not even sure if anyone notices. They sure do make a lot of noise as all of these stores have tile floors. So yesterday I went into a place that I have been to a few times. This time I have new black pants that come down perfectly to the bottom of my shoes. I decided to wear my Black Platform heels. They are rounded toe and very easy to walk in. I have attached photos. So I go in and have to walk by a greeter and I go to the shoe section to see if there is anything I can by for myself or my girlfriend. I have two ladies come by me and look at shoes and make conversation. I didn't thing anything of it, I did find a great pair of heels for my girlfriend and went and bought them. As I was leaving the greeter stopped me and shook my hand, he told me I had everyone in the store checking out my shoes. I didn't know what to say, I just shook his hand and said "thank you". The lady that was looking at shoes with me just said have a good day as I walked by her. Thinking back I wish I would have asked him to elaborate a little more. Was it a good think or a bad thing in their mind? I would love to know what they were thinking. Was I a really weird guy or just that I had crazy high heels on and I am a guy?? Any thoughts from you all? Have you been confronted? I have a few friends that know I do this and they have told me who cares what people think, just do your thing. It was a great feeling to say the least but left me wondering more. Your thoughts...

    It took a little while to get approved, but now I am here. I have had a love of heels and stockings as long as I can remember. However, I hadn't worn them until the past few years when I found that a friend had the same size shoe as myself. I tried hers on and have progressively become more bold. It started mailordering shoes and boots and wearing them in private. I took it to another level by going to thrift stores and trying them on as quickly as possible and occasionally wearing them while I drive. I've since gone to larger shoe stores and department stores to try them on and while I still try them on while no one is around, I'm less concerned about wearing them while another shopper or associate comes down the aisle. Getting caught wearing them the few times has never garnered a bad reaction so far, so it empowers me to be a little more open each time. I've taken to finding more secluded public places to walk around a bit, but only twice have I specifically walked into a store knowing full well people may notice. The set attached are from a visit to a local park, there were a few people walking around.. but not really near me. At first I bought these on a whim without trying them on at a Charlotte Russe store, the only time I have purchased shoes with the help of a worker and wasn't sure if I would like them. However they are very comfortable to walk in. I thank those of you that have shared previously, as you have all helped me along with my journey. In fact, my approval to this board has inspired me to get up and get out as soon as I am done posting.

    Well I'm a huge platform fan. Platforms say show attitude, even more they scream "Look at me". Because they are attention getters and they make my legs look really good. To those who love single soles more props to you but us platform lovers gotta stick together lol!!!

    Well it finally happened. A while ago I mentioned to my wife about me wearing heels. Yesterday, we had some time alone and I wore heels around her as we did some housework. Not glamorous, but successful. She was more accepting then I hoped. What a wonderful woman. Her main concern was was for my feet and legs. Dont think she will accept public wearing for some time, but she did enjoy watching me vacuum in heels. Thanks to everyone for their support.

    Thanks Freestyle75, some good pointers there! Unfortunately work got in the way again on Friday/Saturday, but I've tried to make up for it today. Just got back from a few hours wandering around the old bit of Frankfurt, stopping for an excellent lunch and beer in the main square. Got a couple of funny looks, but mostly I was ignored. Took a bravery pill as I went with shorts and hose for the first time in daylight, along with the new ankle boots I bought in Payless on my US trip earlier this year. Really pleased with them, though the heel is slippery as hell and needs a rubber foot. And really pleased with my outfit too, so much so I'm thinking of going out in something a bit racier later! What do you think?

    I like several stiletto pumps thigh high boots 5 and 6 inch single sole 6 and 7" with 1-2" platforms. My go to all time favs are Steve Madden Dejavu's in black and beige in the pics. I also just found a pair in leopard!! My Pleaser Devious Daggers are 6-1/4 single sole with ankle strap that I was in Chicago out and about for 7 hours. My usual time out in heels is 5-7 hours with no problem

    For my two cents worth, here are some rules I have typed up based on my experience wearing heels. I should note I wear high heels every day and would wear pumps 90% of that. I've been intensively wearing heels for over a decade. Almost every shoe I own is a stiletto heel. following these guidelines would mean you could wear heels openly and comfortably, overall enjoyable experience: 1. Must fit perfectly. (Always buy high heels later in the day because feet do swell during the day! The higher the heel the snugger the fit must be. if they don't fit perfectly do not wear them - you will have get uncomfortable or have an accident. Leather high heels get looser the longer you wear them during the day, the higher they are the looser they get so you need a snug fit to begin. Stockings will mean your shoe fit is even more slippery later in the day eg after 8 hours, so again a snug fit to begin is essential for 4 inch + heels) 2. Heels to match your ability. (you'll know your real ability if you wear high heels out and about, if not I'm sorry but in my opinion you won't know your real ability. If you aren't wearing heels all the time then an approximate measure of a starting point is to wear a pair(if strappy, with straps undone) , then stand on tippy toes and arch your feet, thereby lifting your heel out of your shoe. If you can't do this by a definite inch higher then you definitely don't have enough flexibility to wear the shoe properly in common situations) 3. never take a short cut. (walk the safest route for underfoot surfaces as well as your safety), similarly don't take short cuts with your outfit (coordinate if you can, groom your legs, only ever wear hosiery that is lighter than your shoes. You must make extra effort to look good since you will be looked at ). 4. Slow down. (avoid running in high heels, especially not on marble or polished floors. The taller your heels the slower you'll be. slow down and enjoy your shoes. As per rule 3 its often practical to take a longer route if the floor is better, or there are no angled pavements, or no loose stones etc...Speed will not negate rule 5. If you fall over then you won't save any time and it will be embarrassing) 5. Expect to be noticed and do not avoid being seen in your high heels - especially if it means a risk of breaking rule No 3 or 4. (You have to be confident and proud.) 6. Maintain your heels (rotate your shoes - don't wear the same pair for more than a day at a time, replace your heel tips regularly, condition the leather, check your heels are firm, take them for repairs before they're too worn. 7. Never carry awkward objects. (Small weights on your sides is ok - eg bags on your elbows/forearms. Back packs are not practical. If you must carry a bulky or heavy object have someone help you. Get someone in flats to help. If you are both wearing high heels then carry such an object by taking a side each and walking forwards with it between you - except for doorways. When wearing heels don't carry anything in front or behind you, whether you're on your own or helping. Carrying stuff is the biggest nuisance/ limitation of heels.) 8. Be aware of your heels. (Be very very careful stepping over obstacles in high heels. Lift legs well clear, much higher than required for safety. Lift your heels over bar stool rails if you're like me and like to hook your heels! Never rock back on your heels, they do bend/break/weaken! Turn your feet slightly sideways when descending stairs so that as you extend your foot down to the next step you can keep your heel further forward and more distant from snagging the previous step! You can be heard walking so this can impact on personal safety in cities, especially in the evenings. Do keep an eye out for unsavoury characters. 9. Avoid Soiling/Damage. (often fabrics/ ornamentation and the leather/patent uppers are surprisingly fragile. usual stuff such as pavement grates, gaps in wooden decks all damage stiletto heels. Never walk on grass/gravel. Don't put your feet up on furniture/chairs/desks. If you must sit on the grass, or on the floor remove your shoes first and place them soles down beside you.Don't drive in high heels because I've found the heels do get scuffed. (hence rule 3 regarding presentation/ shortcuts and and rule 11) 10. Wipe your feet! (whenever its wet outside and you enter a building carefully wipe the soles of your shoes dry on the floor mat, this is all about the toe area sole. The only grip in a stiletto is from that toe area and if its a smooth wet sole, or maybe in autumn has a slippery leaf stuck to it as then you're on a skating rink! When its dry no problem) 11. Flats are still ok (if high heels are no longer possible, or they will get damaged definitely take them off .Nothing is worse than seeing someone in heels who is awkward. If you need to carry heels, put your first finger in one shoes toe are, your second in the other and let them dangle. This way the heel tips will not scuff the other shoe! Note - if you carry stuff at your elbow then your fingers are free to carry your heels!) 12. Think ahead more. To wear a pair of heels all day is easy and pleasurable if you get it right. You won't always get it right because plans change and unexpected stuff happens! Think about what you have to do today, what you're wearing and pick a shoe that both coordinates and can do the activities. Sometimes you'll be limited by uniform rules for the day so that's a no brainer & no options day, I understand that - I have 4 of those days a week, as do most of us. Blah! 13. Loosing Control of your heels? this happens. Question during the day is why. 2 most common reasons. Tiredness in ankle/ankle shakes - this is because your heels are too high for you! . Take your heels off and next time drop down in heel height. The other is walking out of your heel If so then your shoe is too big. Go to the pharmacy/chemist or cobbler and get some heel inserts - go there immediately while in your heels! why not! Are you wearing stockings - take your stockings off and you will get more control of your heels. Get through the day but you will need to get shoes that fit you better. hope this helps! best wishes Craig

    Sorry about the blur in the image, my phone had a smudge on the lens. These aren't what I consider good looking, however I tried them on just to see if I liked them as an option for a less obvious outside world choice. With the pants hanging down, you can only barely notice them as high heels. Yet at the same time the heel is somewhat hard and makes a definite heel sound when walking across a tile floor. I have worn these into a store and was extremely self conscious, though I doubt anyone noticed at all. They are EXTREMELY comfortable.

    Last night, after I got home from visiting my shoe buddy (mentioned and pictured in my ongoing personal thread/blog), I was contacted by a young woman we know who has just graduated from college this month. The reason we know her is because she is from the same city as my wife, Hanoi, Vietnam. Some 3 1/2 years ago, I received a telephone call from a friend who works at our local college, saying he had a freshman in his office from Hanoi, and she seemed kind of lonely and homesick, and would we be interested in meeting her. Of course, we said yes, and we became mentors of a sort to this young lady. Oh, and did I mention, she's rather attractive, to put it mildly. At any rate, I got to chatting with her last night, and somehow the subject of my heel wearing came up. I thought about reproducing our chat here, but decided against it for the sake of her privacy. But basically, she said that her mom (whom I've met several times, both here and in Vietnam), was very surprised about my choice of footwear. Unfortunately, I didn't really get details of that conversation, but she did say very clearly that she thought my choice of footwear was really not all that strange to her, and that she had absolutely no problem with it. She even hinted that maybe I should try wearing a skirt! Just FYI, she herself favors extremely short skirts and shorts. It can be a strange dynamic between a 49 year old guy and a 21 year old woman, so I didn't really say much, other than to thank her for accepting me the way I am. The only reason I am posting this is because it was a huge confidence booster, and I hope it can help others know that there ARE females out there who are open minded. Maybe there is hope.

    It rained the first two days of our vacation. We were stuck inside because of the heavy downpour and high water. We did some shoe shopping online together and ordered 2 pairs each. We got matching fushia cutout platform pumps with an ankle strap. She got a matching pink pair of pumps that I already have. And I ordered the purple floral pair. All our shoes were on clearance and totaled less than 45 dollars. I think my previous order of a pair of light blue ones is unavailable. But it was a good way to spend some time with my wife despite the bad weather.

    Sorry for my tardiness in replying to this thread guys, been a mad busy week or two since I first posted. Thank you all for your tips and suggestions, I'll look into as many as I can without annoying the wife too much! The trip is well underway, unfortunately heel-less so far, but we'll see what the shops yield. I'll be honest and say that my attention has been diverted by our transport for the trip, the rather lovely Mabel, a 1946 Chevy Pick Up. If you see us on the Mother Road then make sure and say hi

    Hi there. I have read a post, the jaunts of JeffB. A good read and gives me a bit more courage. thanks. I really liked the quote at the bottom of that post...'I don't want to look like a woman, just dress like a woman'. I have dressed up at home, to the office (when working alone), gone for short drives....It actually fills a void in my life...gives a fair comfort and for some reason makes me feel really good. I must say that sometime ago I just realised that i loved womens shoes and some time shortly after, womens clothes. Particularly leather clothes, as you will gather ! I recently got a fantastic pair of Stiletto Ankle Boots...they fit really well...which I will be wearing. I also have about five leather suit outfits, Pants Skirts Dress Jackets. My question...is that jumping into the deep end...wearing a leather outfit ? I'm inclined to try a pant suit photographed, and I would welcome anyone's opinion. Thanks. js

    I went shopping at Sam's Club and Krogers (grocery) today wearing an outfit I had never worn before. The dress features flared sleeves and is reasonably short. I added a belt and wore hose with sandals with a 1½" platform and 5½" heels. This is a @CAT style "leggy" look. Today I felt like the character in Paul Stookey's Talking Candy Bar Blues, "Every bodies looking... Every bodies staring... at me". None of the folks I know at Sams were on duty so I was like walking into a brand new store and the parking lot, thus the store, was packed. In addition those shoes put me a full head taller than anyone else. I did my shopping as I normally do but I was aware of being noticed. Krogers was more "normal". Folks just ignored me and I had a register clerk that knew me. She is probably only 5'2" on her tip toes so I was towering over her (at least it looked that way to me). I must have presented myself confidently because no one said a thing and everyone just let me go about my business. I'm still trying to figure out what was so different. It is the first time I have worn this dress. and one of the few times I have worn those sandals. The outfit needed a necklace but I really think I missed wearing my boots. In the past I have noticed that wearing boots is a mental crutch that really does embolden me like nothing else. That is probably because I have been presenting that image for a long time and am totally comfortable with it. Nobody ever said, "Change is easy", at least if they were being honest. The big change today was the shoes. They are comfortable and I think they looked good but they were a really different experience. I'm relating to the new folks that go out in heels for the first time. I should look around for a pair that are lower. Not that walking was a problem but being heads above the crowd made blending in a challenge. Oh well, it was a learning experience, and I did get my shopping done.

    So today I worked from home... my wife was here working too. I had the urge to choose some heels, but felt uncomfortable for some reason choosing first thing in the morning, in front of her. So I waited till she left, and deliberated a little on which heels to choose, and decided in the end on these below - classic pump by London Rebel. It has a 4" heel and the suede is divine! I knew my wife would come back in an hour or so, and didn't bother taking them off. She knows I like heels and wear them occasionally. She doesn't love it, but she tolerates it (she even went shopping with me the first few times and tried on for me - we are almost the same size). Anyway - she came back and saw me, and said "ooh those are high!" and I smiled. she went about her business and I mine, walking here and there around the house. I had to step out for a few minutes and took them off - only to put them on as soon as I came back. I am sure she heard me clip clopping down the stairs.... a little later she came to visit me in my office and we chatted for a while about this and that, I could see her looking at my feet every now and again. and at some point we start cuddling and kissing... it got quite hot, but we didn't go past 1st base... later tonight ... anyway - it was a real turn on making out with her while in heels - Loved it!

    My pist sort of fits in this topic but i might add it to my blog later as well. Apologies to those that may read it twice. ;( i was in the Wittner outlet store in Sydney the other day. Just trying things on. Killing time there are about 6-8 things i like but narrowing the selection down is hard. Quite a few other shoppers invluding a lady mid 30s very athletic, thin legs. She was also trying on boots but having less luck than me. She was tring a suede pair if knee high pull on boots So there i was, sitting down taking off a pair of knee boots with a tall heel and the lady pauses near me and asks "your boots look great on and you wear them well. I think these ones are too baggy. What do you think?" i was stunned that my opinion was been sought on womens boots by a women. So i jumped right in. I said i like boots to be firm up the legs and the one she was wearing were way too baggy especially at the top for my liking. I suggested a pair and walked her down to where they were that are leather front and elastic back. (Theyre too tight for me) I suggested these and she looked at them. They have a block heel about 8cm. She started to say thd heels were too high for her but about 3/4 way i think she realised she was talking to a guy walking in 10cm heels and stopped herself so she tried them on. They fit her nicely but I don't know if she bought them. im still just so chuffed that i got asked for my opinion thought such a positive meeting needed sharing james

    yeah its a fun way to dress up! well the word that comes to mind about my Friday lunch date is: hilarious! to start, i thought i would be smart and take off an hour early and get there before the gals but the traffic was insane. so instead of arriving early i was late! i had the butterflies of course but was also very excited at the same time. i got into the diner and the ladies were already at a table and i heard my gal pal say there he is. so they all stopped and stared as i walked up to them. i stood there in front of them for a few minutes apologizing to my gal pal for being late and she introduced me to her co workers. they were all middle aged gals in basic office wear. lunch was simple and these gals all wanted to know why i was wearing high heels and where did i buy them, things like that. one aggressive gal said: you're wearing those famous black sling backs again huh? she said she had seen the photo of them at the office and wanted a closer look so i gave her a little foot and shoe show! when it was time to leave i walked out ahead of them and we all parted ways in the parking lot. my gal pal gave me the "nudge nudge wink wink" look and told me she would drop me a line sometime this weekend. haven't heard from her as of yet but i look forward to hearing from her and what her co workers might have had to say about our amusing lunch date.

    Well, I did it and told my parents. I was alone with my mom first so I told her before my dad. Her reply was, if it's you and you accepted it it's fine with me. It's no problem at all and next time we visit i'd like to see your collection. And by the way, why didn't you tell me years earlier don't wait so long again. I explained my history with heels and that I had an interest in shoes from a young age. She was a bit surprised by the amount of heels I have. She asked if she can tell her cousin and I approved. We also talked about tat I don't know about the why and she said it must be something you're born with and it's you. My dad is a bit less communicative and needs to overthink things, he didn't really know what to say. But he said, what am I supposed to say, if it makes you happy it's fine. My mom ephasized that she's fine with it. Overall I call it a success.

    I wore them from 9:30 am to 9:30 pm except I found out that I couldn't drive in them, so I swooped out my SM clog on the right foot to drive. You got to take smaller steps in these,comfortable all day. But tiring for 12 hours because of the shorten strides, I walk and stand a lot during the day.

    Hi all I've never owned a pair of patent leather boots before so I jumped at the chance to get these when the size was available. They are now on the way! They are Nine West Kellan wide stretch boots & I'm really excited to get them. I'm not too sure what outfit as yet but I believe dark leggings / jeggings or riding pants should be ok. My recent heeling experiences (mainly walks in the early morning in quieter places) have led me to prefer block heels rather than stilettos. Will post pictures when I receive them!

    New yet not new boots. Today I opened up a box I had forgotten about and was surprise what I found. I got a pair of Madden Girl Krisis calf high boots in Cognac many years ago and it has become my go to boot (see below). I liked them so much that I got them in black as well. If you know women's fashion, shoes are designed for one season, once gone they rarely return. So this spring I saw the last pair of these in size 10 on EBAY and got them. Inside the box was my third pair I ordered in the beginning of February, this pair was also in cognac.

    I usually work around at home with a 5 or 6 inch heel but a 1-2 each platform (see pics). I got some 4 inch boots that are nice to wear on colder days. From what I can see gender is changing from the old binary view to a broader range, more like a spectrum. It has begun to change but it will take more time, whether it be in my life time or the next generation.

    I always liked to look at high heels even as a kid. I can remember looking at the Sears catalogues and admiring the high heels. I never actually owned my first pair of heels until after my divorce from my first wife who never knew about my admiration for heels. Being by myself I decided to buy my first pair and see what it finally felt like to wear a pair of heels. They were a closed toe sandle, black with a heel cup and ankle strap. They were about 4.5" with a 1/2" platform. They felt fabulous and definitely thrilled me. My collection grew until I felt awkward and shameful, thus the collection was purged. I am very glad that I was honest and upfront with my present wife. Now we both have marvelous heel collections and we enjoy shoe shopping.

    I started on a short shopping trip that got longer before I even got out of the door. Unlike @JeffB, I really don't plan do a lot of planning before I head out and I thought this would just be a boots and jeans outing but I pulled on a white satin top and the combination looked so good I figured it was worth the effort to put some more effort into it. Since I had new glasses that let my eyes be seen I added some eye lashes then some light makeup with lipstick. I added hair, earrings, necklace, bracelet, and small watch. I finally pulled on a pair of knee high faux suede boots with 4" narrow heels. When I was done, the outfit and overall look felt very natural and comfortable. I thought I really don't mind being seen like this. Anyway I originally was planning on a quick trip to Sam's Club but after getting dresses I made an it an outing. The first stop was my favorite thrift store where the folks at the front counter game me a big "Hello" as I walked in. I wandered around but didn't find anything I "just couldn't live without" so I headed back to my car and then off to Sam's. At Sam's I took my time walking in from the parking lot and as soon as I got into the store my favorite manager spotted me and called out from some distance away, "Ohh you look nice today". Several folks looked to see to whom she was calling. I waved back and started my shopping. One of the items on my list was a 128G thumb drive. It seems they didn't carry them anymore but they had a 256G one that filled the bill. (I remember back in my early IT mainframe days when I could even conceive of having that much storage available.) After Sams I stopped at two more thrift stores where the folks didn't know me and I got no reaction at all. I was just another customer. All in all it was a fun outing and worth the extra effort to get dressed.

    @jeremy1986 and @Jkrenzer - Thanks for the comments, they are really appreciated. My only comment is that I find wig shopping as much fun as shoe shopping, and not all my boot purchases are as successful as others. _______________ I went to a weekly jam at a restaurant tonight where the owner has always comment (positively) in my boots. I figured that tonight I'd really give him something different. I wore a gray long turtleneck, black leggings, and red faux suede OTK boots with 4" block heels. We played for several hours and the other folks in the jam noticed my boots (they aren't blind) but just figured it was something I'd do. As I left and was putting my stuff into my car, one of the patrons in the restaurant called out across the parking lot, "Hey, I like your killer boots". I called back a thanks and headed home. I think this was the first public outing for these boots in a music setting (which I treat more conservatively than just being out and about). I had fun.

    This site might cause me financial problems. I went shopping (looking) today and tried on these: SpeedLimit 98 Manji-H. 6 inch heel, 1.5 platform. Velcro strap - lol. Soon comfy that they had to come home with me. Plan to wear them to work tomorrow, hopefully get some pictures of me walking in them. But here's a picture of them w/o feet. Planning a shoe shopping trip with a colleague to San Francisco. She use to be a fashion buyer in San Francisco and knows where all the good shoe stores are. This should be an eye opener. The Macy's there is the second largest shoe department in the company, only behind the flagship store.

    I once wore my black pleaser boots for at best 12 hours. 6 inch stiletto heel, and I'm a size uk7 although the boots are an 8.

    Cannot tell you why, just liked girls shoes since I first went to school, in my first class was a girl in a pair of red sandals, wondered why can't I wear a pair like that, I was 4or 5 years old been into girls shoes since then, wish I knew why. 60 years later still wearing them.

    Your so right..Lol. No seriously, went to outlet store today found some suede Sam Edelman pump stilettos like these. Yes to my amazement a size 12 US which has to fit me, i was about to grab them only to back off, saying to myself those heels ain't high enough. Something about these heels or height i see some women wear doesn't do it for me. Maybe W6ish does know higher heels looks better, i don't know if your 7.5" platform your video shows are for me but i understand wearing them better now. This would be more like my style CL.. Do know W6ish might like these Daffodile better might be to high for me though. For $150 quite a bargain.
