    I got some new pumps and I was kinda feeling myself, so I wanted to share. Pictures are kinda bad quality, and my face is kinda awkward, but you get the drift. Wife told me that the plaid shirt made me look like forest gump in high heels. lmao!!! Anyway, hope you like the outfits...and the dog!

    I like cork wedge Sandals and I like very hig heels. So most of time the cork wedges have a high heel but a high plateau as well. My wish was something really high but walkable. By random I cam across a shop in Aliexpress which have some cork wedge high heels, but for me not high enough. So I decided to ask the shop Manager if they can customize a wedge heel and he said: Y E S So I gave him the püicture of the heels from his shop and asked for the customization and he said: NO PROBLEM and the Price with $76,- was quite nice. So here we go cork wedges Size EU12 Heel 18cm plateau 2cm and I am very happy with them. They are a bit difficult to walk in but this is something I really enjoy:

    Finally got my red boots at last. I even wore them out in public for 2 hours. I would post a bigger photo of how long they really are if the 500mb rule wasn't implemented.

    I wasn't sure if I should post this in a new thread versus my old thread, or in "share your best freestyle fashion pictures". Sorry if this infringes on any forum rules. I just wanted to share a few more pictures. I loved the nude Sam Edelman Hazel pumps so much I also bought them in red. I also picked up a pair of Michael Kors open toed booties that are super fun and really comfortable. I hope you enjopy the outfits. I realized most of the outfits I posted were pretty formal/dressy, like something you'd wear to the office. So with the Michael Kors booties I tried to dress them down a bit into a fun casual outfit. Thanks again, and my apologies if I posted in the wrong area.

    Bought these inexpensive Zodiac booties off ebay, size 10. I really like the look of the heel and color, even though the toes are more rounded than I prefer. I bought these partially because the short shafts fit in my bag easier, but also to wear instead of my stiletto boots that are getting torn up on rough surfaces/roads/sidewalks. While these booties look good, they are really not designed very well in terms of walkability....I realize that Zodiac is probably a lower cost product, but I wish they the heels/soles were designed a bit better for ease of walking. The underslung heels tend to buckle a bit making me feel a bit uneasy, perhaps losing a few pounds might help! These booties seem to be more for "show" than "go", but I didn't pay much for them so can't complain.

    Nothing much to report lately, except I did get a much needed compliment yesterday. I was in my local Walgreens getting some BIG Band-Aids (sticking plasters), as my son had had a mishap with his knee, and six regular sized Band-Aids weren't cutting it. I was wearing my cutoff shorts, which I may have mentioned somewhere are actually about an inch TOO short to be practical, but they're fine if you never sit down anywhere. Anyhow, they're stylish enough I guess, without being this ripped or distressed business that every girl seems to be wearing nowadays. Oh, also, I was wearing my gold patchwork Coach mules with dark brown 4 1/4" wedge heel. A lady I would guess to be about my age followed me up to the checkout area and remarked that I had prettier legs than she did. As she was wearing long pants, I cannot say whether that was true or not, but in any case she was slim and reasonably attractive. I kind of chuckled in the way that I do when I'm caught off guard, and thanked her. Then we talked about kids and skinned knees with the cashier, I wished them a good evening, and I was on my way home to apply said Band-Aids. It's been kind of a rough month for negative feedback, so it was nice to get some positive, and she seemed like she was being sincere. I did not detect any trace of sardonic tone in her voice.

    This thread is inspiring me! One time I went out and wore pumps, the girl wore matching black patent pumps. It was a good time.

They also have a keyhole cut-out in the toe box 3) Mint green Le Chateau brand with 4.5" heel

    The 3 - 4" block heel is best for daily use. I also carry to work and to the city to my customers. I'm doing lighting projects and looking at implementation. High heels and thin heels for solemn occasions. I don't wear heels at home because nobody sees them.

    Somewhat in a similar position, but I try to go far enough from home that my immediate neighbourhood will not find out. There's a danger that others who know me will see me, but at those times I take that risk. Otherwise I will be stuck at home only, which is no fun. Starting to focus more on potential trips, and trying to plan ahead... OUTING: Had a chance to try my new 5" ankle-boot (no platform) outside, along with another 5" ankle-boot (with 1" platform). It was in a suburban neighbourhood, and it was dark already. My no-platform-boots, although they're size US9, I have no idea what kind of messed up sizing system they used, as US9 would be way too small and unworkable for me, but these shoes are a perfect fit with socks, and I mean 100% perfect, so comfortable. I don't think I've ever gone out in a 5" boot before, but I simply had to try these out. As usual, it was with long jeans covering most of the heels. Getting out of the car is getting less of an issue, and I am starting to not worry about that at all. Although I've worn heels this tall inside, outside turned out to be a challenge. Took me about 10 minutes to get used to it, and figure out how to handle the slopes on a sidewalk, and the ups and downs of driveway entrances. I didn't trip, ankles didn't go out, so am quite proud of myself. Walked around for ~30 minutes, and it was an amazing 30 minutes. Had some people walk by, but didn't care. Did get a small group of teenager guys walk my way for which I stopped and messed around with my phone until they passed. I didn't trust that situation. After 30 minutes of walking about, my feet didn't ache, my toes weren't crushed, I love these. Although the heels are higher than my usual, I'm surprised how well I did. Before calling it quits, I had to try the other boots, so changed into them, and took a quick stroll. I don't know why, possibly because after 30 minutes with a 5" lift, wearing something with a 4" lift was child's play. I felt like I was wearing my sneakers, so comfortable, so easy to walk in. Overall, I had no issues, both new boots did great, and I'm super-happy. Before heading home I considered stopping by a grocery store or something just for the thrill of it, but decided to head home and not freak out my wife (that I went into a store in heels - maybe next time).

    I'm getting old, but have never seen another male wear heels, dressed as a male. It's a bit daunting, but I have noticed that as I get older, I realize that the time I have available to me to do this is getting shorter. So I venture outside more. Thank you everyone for the positive feedback. I am making progress in my adventure to wear heels. I hope I will be comfortable to wear them more openly as time progresses.

    Went up to our land in far northern Wisconsin and stopped at Nordstrom Rack on the way and bought these! Clearance price of course. Just basic cognac coloured wedge sandals with a 5"/12 cm heel. They're branded "14th and Union" which I have never bought before. I wore them the rest of the trip. I also wore them on the way home. Very cumfy indeed. HinH

    I had an interesting encounter today. It all started the other day. I was searching through Facebook Marketplace as I usually do. I came across a pair of black patent stilettos. They looked great and the $10 price tag didn't hurt either. So I messaged the seller to ask her a few basic questions. Things like the brand and size and such. At no point in our conversation did I mention or lead on that the shoes were for me. I finally told her I was interested and I could pick up the shoes tomorrow. She said great and gave me her address. She also said she had some other shoes I might be interested in. So I drove to her house at the agreed-upon time and knocked on the door. She came to the porch area and let me in. She brought me the shoes and without missing a beat she asked if I would like to try them on. The whole drive over I was wondering how it was going to go down. And I was prepared for anything that might arise. I thought about her proposal for just a split second and said sure! I put them on and she asked how they fit? I told her they were really comfortable if not slightly large. Then she asked if I wear them around town referring to heels. I told her I do. Then she said if you don't mind me asking are you a crossdresser or trans etc etc. I felt really comfortable at this point and she seemed that way from the get-go. I told her none of the above. I told her I just wear whatever I want. If it looks good I wear it. She said okay. Then she started telling me about some trans person she knew years back in town. And all the struggles she had before she eventually died. After a brief conversation she mentioned she had another pair of heels that I might be interested in. She said they were red patent and she went to fetch them. I was excited because I didn't have any red patent in my collection. She came back shortly with the shoes. I was slightly dejected as they were more of a maroon wine color. They were nice just the same though. They were Jessica Simpson brand. They had a 5-inch heel and a platform. They also had a keyhole cut-out in the toe box. I slipped out of the black ones and tried these on. They fit great and we're just as comfortable as the other ones despite the added height. She told me how great both pairs looked on me. She told me these ones would be $15 if I wanted them. I happily paid her the $25. She grab me a plastic bag to put the shoes in. And then she said if I have any shoes for sale later I will message you a picture. I thanked her and left one happy camper! Two hot pairs of heels for $25 and a very positive shoe buying experience. The only negative is that when I got home I noticed the patent on the Black shoes had started to separate a little bit from the side of the heel shafts. I missed that earlier but since I only paid $10 for the shoes it was no big deal. A little glue and I should be back in business. I am going to get pics up of the shoes as soon as I can so stay tuned! Oh and I forgot to mention that earlier in the day I found a near-perfect pair of mint green patent stilettos in a thrift store for less than $10 also! So let's recap. I got three pairs of heels plus a story and interaction of a lifetime. And not to mention a potential source of future shoe buying. And all it cost me was 30 bucks! You can't beat that!

    Wore these ankle boots in the clubhouse after playing 18 holes yesterday. On the way out was stopped by a stranger who said " you must have a sexy unbrella too." I smiled and thanked him even i really didn't understand if it was a compliment or not. Sometimes older men equate umbrellas with sissyness. However i didn't care and thanking him may have thrown him off. Also stopped at the local grocery near our vacation spot to get beer and a couple gallons of water. Carried out 2 cases of beer and 2 gallons of water while working it in 5inch heels. So much fun.

    hiddenheels, You have seen a sampling of reaction + support since your first posting. If you refocus on the posting by mlroseplant on 27 June I offer my validation of that post. Whilst I know some things on the internet should be taken with a grain of salt I can assure you may confident in mlroseplant because I know him and his wife. I have visited him a few times now as I passed through Iowa on my way home to Wisconsin. He lives in a small town and wears his heels openly just as described. He walks the walk and is secure in who he is. So, when he writes about his experiences in hopes of encouraging you, I believe you can take it to the bank. Ultimately this forum exists to encourage others to enjoy their heels and indeed enjoy their lives wearing those heels. There are many others here who have similar stories but you can take inspiration from any of them if that helps and I hope it does. I have met several of our members and my life is enhanced for having done so. Bet on it. Bet on yourself. HappyinHeels

    For me, the different steps walking in heels outside are: 1/- hidden block heels boots or booties 2/- hidden stilettos booties 3/- visible block heels boots or booties 4/- visible stilettos booties 5/- hidden very female style stilettos court shoes 6/- visible court shoes i personally am fine until step 3.sometimes step 4 .Not yet steps 5 and 6 as RonC wrote,the risk someone could take a picture and post it somewhere worries me . The odds are 1/10000 (?) but not nothing depending the place the risk being noticed by someone we know is more important.So far it personally never happened So....let's go ahead and wear heels Pierre

    I am slightly younger vintage, but I remember this style being quite popular in the 70s, but with squareish toes, and lace up fronts. Some may have had a zipper, but some did not. I was very young at the time (elementary school age), but I remember elementary school girls wearing these boots, either in white patent or black patent. One of the girls was my next door neighbor. She let me try them on a couple of times. I had completely forgotten about that. Perhaps my desire for girly things started much younger than I remember! She was a year older than me, and I suppose I was about 8 years old at the time, and she was 9. We never could get both boots laced up all the way on me before her mother would knock on the door and say, "What on earth are you guys doing in there?" I distinctly remember trying this at least twice. The girl's family moved away the very next year. Haha, good memory! The other thing I suddenly remember about this girl is that she had remarkably long fingernails for a 9 year old, which would have been the style at the time, but usually for much older girls. They were most likely popular with older girls as well, but I certainly don't remember it. Here is an image I found of the boots I remember.

    I just love the feeling of wearing heels and knowing i'm doing what I want and not caring about what other people think. It's such an amazing liberating experience. The courage to be myself is very fleeting, so i try to take advantage of it when I can. I'm in the military, and I know that if I was found out by my friends, about 75% would laugh and make jokes (and eventually move on), the other 25% would be cool and not really make a big deal out of it. The most important part is that it would end up just being something normal to the people I know, but getting over the initial hump and working through the shock that most people would show at first is the hard part. I'm quick with words and would be able to deflect really easily, but the hassle and stress of having to do that for a while is just kinda not worth it right now. So, most of my heeling is done away from the area I live in.

    Oh yes, this subject has probably been beaten to death, or so we thought, but perhaps it wasn't meant to die. I know it continues to be a curiosity in my life, and has resurfaced yet again this summer. It is not a question of whether people notice, but what percentage notice enough for it to really register what they've just seen. I would guess that the percentage is low, but when you're walking in public, it doesn't take a very high percentage to feel like you're in the spotlight. When I first started heeling, some 7+ years ago, my formula was fairly straightforward--conservative, un-flashy clogs or boots, usually black, and boot cut jeans hemmed 1/2" off the floor. I was noticed by a certain percentage of people. Part of my reasoning was to cover the heels, but part of it was that it seemed to be a stylish look, or at least it was at one time. A few years later, I started wearing slimmer cut (not quite "skinny," but close) jeans with my heels, and the heels became higher, thinner, and more open. This change didn't seem to affect the percentage of people who noticed, or at least who reacted visibly. Fast forward another couple years, and I began wearing shorts with heels. With this combo, the percentage of people who reacted went up significantly, and continues to be high to this day. In fact, I've had the most negative reaction in the past month that I've had for some time. It's kind of a bummer. I think people in general are shocked by the shorts more than the heels, and that's partially due to the fact that men's shorts have gotten ridiculous sometime in the last 20 years. Certainly the shorts with the heels doubles the attention. With more attention, there's bound to be more negative reaction. To be fair, shorts with heels is going to attract attention no matter what, unless you're at a place where many people are wearing such clothes. I would be willing to venture that if I were a woman, and wore what I normally wear into the supermarket, that there would be at least as many eyes on me (for different reasons) as there are right now. It would be nice to just be left the hell alone, but that ain't gonna happen, so I might as well wear what I like. If I wanted to just wear heels of any sort and attract the least amount of attention, I'd wear long pants with block heeled boots all the time. People seem to be remarkably cool with that on a guy, at least around here.

    Well, I done did it, first time out in shorts. Definitely a sensation of being exposed but not a bad sensation. It also felt, for lack of better term, empowering. Being unabashedly myself. As far as reaction, the gal who helped me smiled hugely the whole time but said nothing. She is usually kind of grumpy. Then coming down the stairs I’m pretty sure that the guy behind me groaned. Didn’t phase me one bit. Regardless, It was a great way to spend the morning and sure beat working I wore my new black wedges. Best, Larry

    Thanks for the encouragement. :) Managed to repeat the experience, although with a 3" chunky boot instead. Similar coffee shop, but elsewhere. Spent about an hour inside, working. I was feeling much better, much more confident, and the heels were under the table, but I didn't make an effort to hide it if someone walked by. Not that I was flaunting it, but more that I was just focusing on my work. It was quite a bit of fun. :)

    Jaunt #506, 8/10/2019: Hard to believe it’s been nearly a month (7/13) since my last jaunt, but, I had been rather busy for the last few weeks so I couldn’t go out and about, or, as John Lennon was famous for having said, “Life is what happens when you’re making other plans”. Anyhoo, with an opening in my schedule, I finally got to enjoy an outing, going to the King of Prussia Mall in my red jersey dress from H&M, the Payless “Parsley” flat sandals in a white and a black satchel bag. It’s also been said that you never miss the water until the well runs dry, and believe you me, I sure had missed being in dresses and had forgotten just how GOOD it felt to wear one, so it was quite exhilarating to be out and about in one again. However, during that last no interval between outings, I continued pondering over the last step in my evolution of going to dresses full time on my outings, I hardly think about wearing skirts, they’re just taking up space in my closet these days, but I’m still not prepared to get rid of them wholesale, and I’m perfectly fine with that. For the time being. Meanwhile, there was already a good crowd at the mall when I arrived just after eleven a.m., I found myself idly wondering if people would take notice of me wearing red, I think you all know where this is headed, because the answer to that question is....no. In hindsight, I should’ve known better, I’ve been to KOP some three dozen times or more, and, despite all the things I’ve worn there, no one has ever paid any attention to me, and this outing was no different, still, even after all this time, I find that rather amazing. After a stop at the comic book shop, I went to Dick’s Sporting Goods where I picked up a new water bottle and a lock for a new bicycle I had bought the previous weekend. Following lunch where I had a slice of chicken bacon ranch pizza (it’s crazy good), I wandered about to see and be seen, and be ignored by the masses which was good enough for me, because that meant I was accepted for my presentation, something that’s always my goal for when I go out. Swinging by H&M, I bought a couple a couple of dresses similar to what I wore, the simplistic, casual style appealed to me, especially for outings where I don’t want to look fancy, like on this outing. I want to have different styles for different outings, everything from casual to dressy and everything inbetween. So yeah, my fashion mindset is definitely gravitating from skirts to dresses, just like it changed from jeans to skirts, and I'm definitely excited about my evolution. More to come....

    Well, not certain what if anything this post has to with with anything else, but since there hasn't been lot of activity here lately, I thought I would comment. It's summertime which to me is sandal time!! I mostly wear sandals almost exclusively gals, both with heels and flat. This summer I have been out as much as possible in sandals, heels mostly, and have had absolutely no reaction at all - and that's a good thing - to me at least, except a compliment would be nice. The past few days I have been out in my favorite pair of VanEli kitten heeled sandals that I have had for a few years. I love these shoes, they look nice and are relatively comfortable. No reactions, maybe a few second looks but thats it. Maybe more folks ARE getting acclimated to seeing a guy in heels? Or just more accepting in general? Or just not noticing and/or not caring? I wore these sandals when me and Steve met in LA last November. Both he and his wife liked them... Tonight the wife and I are off to the Greek Theater in LA to see Weird Al in concert. I have seen him before, he's hilarious! Gonna wear heels, just not sure which pair.... Have fun all...... sf

    Jaunt #505, 7/13/2019: Having devoted myself to wearing dresses, I was curious about how far I could push the envelope, in this instance, it wasn’t about hemline, but, neckline. A couple of years ago, I bought a cute, clingy, sleeveless black dress from JCPenney, while I was intrigued with the style as you can see in the pictures below, I was leery about the neckline with it’s deep plunge, something I wasn’t used to at the time and wondered if I could get away with wearing something like that in public. Well, in the time since I bought that dress, I’ve worn others with low necklines and the world didn’t come to an end, so, I decided to wear this one with the Payless “Noble” flat sandals in black and see what, if anything would happen. Headed east towards downtown, my first stop was to the main branch of the Post Office to buy a couple of money orders. Walking in, there was a good sized line that was eight deep, so I had to wait, while I waited, four more people filed in behind me, but no one in front of me or behind paid me any attention. I found that kinda sorta surprising. Once I bought my money orders, filled them out and dropped them off, it was back in the car and over the bridge into South Jersey to Moorestown Mall where I first had lunch, a slice of chicken bacon ranch pizza and a bottle of water, both were tasty, then I headed off to the nearby multiplex (LOVE their comfy reclining seats) to watch Crawl, a masterful summertime horror movie that kept me on the edge of my seat. I heartily recommend this flick if you enjoy chills and thrills. After leaving the multiplex, I walked past a goth girl in her early twenties, dressed head to toe in black, even black lipstick with tattoos up and down her arms, she smiled at me and said, “I like your dress!” I smiled back and thanked her. Perhaps she liked it because it was black, your guess is as good as mine, but hey, I never question a compliment when it comes my way. Back over the bridge in Philly, I swung by Rittenhouse Square Park which was absolutely teeming with people in the mid-afternoon as everyone enjoyed the sunshine and warm weather. Finding a bench in the shade, I took in some reading on my Kindle, and when I wasn’t enjoying my e-book, I took in some people watching, most notably women in dresses, lots of cami/spaghetti strap styles from minis to maxis, and I liked what I saw while imaging how I’d look in clothes similar to what they wore. Oh, and in addition, wearing a dress was imminently more practical as I felt good and cool, even at the height of the heat that day, I was perfectly comfortable. So, my little experiment ended with no one noticing the low neckline on my dress, and that has given me courage and confidence to wear similar styles, and with plenty of summer left, I intend to do just that. More to come....
