  1. Thanks everyone, I went with a slightly lower pair of Frye ankle boots with my bootcut jeans. Still, I’m 6’1” barefoot, so lots of looks and stares, no way around that, but I feel pretty good. Slight delay, so just walked around the terminal, and read a little. Layover in Dallas, and my sister is actually flying American, I’m on southwest. I’ll be back in the air next Monday, but a direct flight, on the Max, no less! I’ll see if I can’t get you guys a photo at my layover.

  2. Salut everyone! My name is Twilight and I'm a 24 year-old straight man from Hungary. It's been several months since I registered here, only now I'm introducing myself because originally when I registered, I just wanted to look around the website without engaging too much but it didn't feel right not talking about myself for so long. I've been wearing high heels since 2007 (I was 9 or 10) when I noticed that months earlier my mom purchased a very great-looking black leather pumps (it had a 5-6cm heel if I remember correctly) that she never used up to that point. When I was a little ki

  3. A recent couple posts on Melrose's thread got me thinking. How many of us are Heel Bingers. I know I am here is my collection of one style of 5" round toed pumps. I have 12 pair, patent, snake patent and matte. Love them all and wear them all. One thing about heels, no limit on colors. I've received great comments with these.

  5. I still have a bunch of updates to write here one day soon but for now - small update - I inventoried my heels today first time in a loooong time. Surprised myself with 39 pairs!!!! Also took the opportunity to clean them up a little, as well as the area i store them under my bed - and to snap some pics of them (individually and group shots!). We might be redoing our bedroom furniture, am not sure what kind of storage i will have after that happens... So here is the summary: 11 tall boots: 3 otk, + 8 knee high (2 of which are just up onto the knee)

  6. Posted in the Binging tpis as well, 3 pair of the same heels from Hey Si Mey. Cant get over how well balanced this brand is, heels not being all the way back is such a plus. These look a bit further back but it's really due to the 14cm height. Without a doubt my maximum elevation on a single soled pump. Have worn the red pair to run a few errands, much smaller steps than even my 13cm pumps. That last little bit makes a huge difference in stride. These are at the max for me.

  8. I used to travel to Embraer for business over 10 yrs ago before i got my current job. I couldn't get over the numbers of beautiful women and the sexiest of stiletto heels at their offices. What amazed me most was how little the Brazilian men even noticed. Am indicator of how typical a sight this was. Me, my head was on a swivel. I couldn't stop looking.

  10. Another Sunday. Nothing too exciting to report, other than a couple of weeks ago I realized that I no longer have any "practical" dress shoes. They are all like the ones pictured or worse! I need to prepare for some of those days when I am feeling less than coordinated, or just flat worn out. I did buy some sub-4 inch pumps a little while ago, but they turned out to be too small. I can't hardly bring myself to buy short heels, but I really ought to, just in case.

  11. mlroseplant, My thoughts are exactly what Cali said. That women who say they are open-minded find self-erected barriers when those heels are on THEIR man's feet. Sort of like those who espouse diversity but go home to someone of the same race, people who speak glowingly of public education while spiriting off their kids to a private school, or the neighbourhood evangelist who scorns modern indecency by day yet has a rolodex of mistresses by night. There's what people say and then there is what they actually do. It is far easier for society to live a polite lie by not admitting what all th

  12. I am different from most here I think in that I just like the feeling and look of the elevated heel, and it doesn't really matter as much to me whether they are thin stilettoes or a more feminine looking style. I like that I can get custom cowboy boots in 3.5 and 4" heels, because they are not viewed as strictly a women's vs men's style as a pair of stilettoes. I think it presents more opportunities for discussion about high heels as part of men's fashion, rather than people jumping to a conclusion that I am cross dressing.

  13. Sneakers where my entry into women's shoes. I was looking for shoes that were made to fit my foot instead of trying to fit my feet to sneakers. I came to the conclusion that I had feet shape more like a woman so I bought a cheap pair of women's sneakers and they fit better than any pair of men's ever had. I haven't bought any men's shoes since then. ================ There's a thread of whether your heels have distracted anyone but I can't find it. But here today's story. We have a open air Sunday farmers market held in the corner of a shopping centers parking lot. Thi

  15. Skinny jeans and knee boots? Seems like the perfect way to wear them! Why else get knee boots of not to show them off. You may as well wear ankle boots if you cover them with jeans.

  19. Had that conversation with a woman behind me at the open air market this morning. We were talking in line and she said "I just saw your wedges, wish I could wear wedges like that." I take every opportunity I get to show that a man can wear heels and be perfectly normal.

  20. I rather agree that taking a photo without 'permission' may be considered intrusive, if not exactly rude, although of course there is nothing unlawful or illegal about it, at least in the UK. But the idea of making more than mild eye-contact with a stranger, let alone saying 'hi', would be anathema to many if not most UK citizens. I guess that a furtive glance and/or pic would be the norm here, with no words spoken. 'Upskirting' has recently become a criminal offence here; perhaps 'downfooting' should be similarly treated!

  21. Just the usual quick outings lately, and other than the occasional compliment, nothing much to say about them. In a first for me I lost possession of my phone while grocery shopping. I sat it down on the counter when I was paying for my smoothie. They sent an employee out into the store to find me and return it. Seems as though I am easy to remember for some reason...

  22. Forgive me for saying this, but that is possibly one of the most American idioms you could have possibly uttered, or in this case, technically, written. Dude, I totally get it, I was 40 years old before I realized I was a grown-ass man and could wear what I wanted.

  23. I'm not finding anything in the Bible about wearing heels. What I think people try to puzzle through is the intent of wearing heels. Yes, it is not exactly normal, but I would say that women wearing heels is a very superficial, human-made norm that can be questioned without disrupting anyone’s view of universal norms. When I wear heels I am not making a statement against male/female creation. It’s not like men were created to be anatomically incompatible with wearing heels versus women. My wife was even remarking the other day that my foot posture has noticeably improved since I star

  24. I will not be giving up wearing heels, under any circumstances. My wife is totally in sync with my heel wearing except on certain occasions when she says the heels I'm wearing are too feminine looking, so I change into a pair she is more comfortable with. Usually a block heel style not over 3". When I'm out on my own, anything goes for me. And yes, the ladies look to see what heels I'm wearing at the time., as I make them totally visible for all to see. I like the compliments, I get from the ladies! Happy Heeling, bluejay

  25. Very much the same here - I quite like my block/cuban heeled ankle boots. I simply like the look and feel of wearing them. The perceived femininity in their styling, to me, comes across edgy - a more daring take on the hiking boots that I usually wear.

  26. I think for the most part those of us that wear heels tend to wear heels that fall on the feminine looking side of the scale. After all, if it was simply wearing something that was elevated at the heel, there are shoes available in men's styles that offer built-in "lifts" which are not at all obvious. So technically, a man could wear high heels without being the least bit obvious. True, they are not going to be 4-6" heels, but I have seen some offered that get close to 4". So I think our desire for heels goes a bit farther than the heel alone, as we like the design that is typically classif

  27. I will agree with you 97%. The other 3% is when it is worn that way out of utility. I.E. want to wear those cute pants but legs will get cold, so the higher shaft boots are worn to help keep warm. There is another reason why I’ve worn my knee boots under jeans. Before wearing my knee boots to work over jeans forever and a day ago, I wore them under jeans, if nothing else to still show off the cute style of the toe and heel. One thing I am excited for coming up this fall is how my newly altered boots will look when worn over jeans! I’m blessed with thinner calves which makes it hard t

  30. I like those mules / slide sandals, very nice. I learned (from my wife) many years ago that when you find a pair of heels that you are really, really fond of, get two pair (at least) ‘cause you may never see them again. Good advice that I have followed a few times... Have fun...

  31. I have reached a new milestone, if you can call it that. I have had two pairs of the identical model shoes in different colors. I've even have three pairs of one particular model. I've bought direct, identical replacements for shoes before. However, this is the first time I've ever owned 4 pairs of identical shoes. And I'd already broken one of them, otherwise it would be 5. Back when I found this model, BCBGirls Bonny, many years ago, I had no idea that it would become my favorite shoe. I often wondered what I would do when I wore out the pair I had. I searched high and low and finally f

  32. You would get knee high boots and wear them inside your pants? If I spend $200 of some suede knee high boots I don't want to hide them under some jeans.

  33. Seems we had a question not unlike this one asked awhile back . To be honest , I told my wife while we were dating my love of wearing and collecting heels . I told her before we went any farther in our relationship I was head over heels for her ...... pun intended . It was my intention at that point in our relationship we get all the cards on the table . I figured if she couldn't take me as I was we would never make it . My ghost needed to be out of the closet as did hers . The next week I asked her folks for their blessing and purchased her an engagement ring . That was 24 years ago and we ar

  39. For the record, even though I am a pilot, I am not talking about flying as Pilot-In-Command. I have to fly back to Missouri tomorrow for my moms memorial, and I haven't yet had the guts to wear high heels during a flight. I figured tomorrow might be a nice chance to wear my 4 inch Calvin Klein booties with a pair of bootcut jeans, and keep my sneakers close just in case I need to change, and/or I punk out. However, I'm not sure I want this to be my first time experimenting with air travel, which includes a layover in Dallas. Any ideas, or advice, or even nice examples of word vomit to go alon

  42. I’m not also a big fan… but she likes them a lot. She gave me this pair and very frequently chooses them. I cannot complain for many reasons, but one of them is that they’re very easy to walk and dance… Here is a close up This pair of sandals are one of my favorites… and of course some boots… It’s crazy how she became such an enthusiast about my high heels wearing and pushes the boundaries with empathy and care.
