  1. Many of my colleagues are aware I wear heels as I do so publicly. But about 2 months ago I decided to just go ahead and be myself in tge office. I'm happy to report I'm openly wearing pumps in the office. One guy calls them my compression shoes. I do stick to basic pumps, minimal color, navy and black. I don't walk the shop in them, there is a safety shoe policy outside the offices anyway. It's been continues to be fun.

  3. 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 kid I always looked at high heels as the "cool shoes" due to their aesthetic, the knocking sound they make when someone walks in them and how much taller someone looked when they put them on. I knew that boys don't tend to wear these kinds of shoes, but frankly, I didn't care (I never truly cared what was popular with other boys) and I desparately wanted to try them on myself to see what it's like and how I look in them. The shoe in question was sitting in a wardrobe for months never being worn to the street, so one day, I waited until everyone left home and decided to sneak up to that wardrobe and put those shoes on. It was love at first "sight"!! Sure, I looked hideous in them (there was like a 5cm gap between my heel and the back-side of the shoe), but I really-really loved the feel it gave. At that moment I knew that - despite me being a boy - it was a feeling I couldn't live without anymore. After a few minutes of toddling around in them (thank God I didn't fell), I put them back the exact same way it was before I touched them, and from that point onwards I always made sure to wear them at least for a few minutes whenever I was home alone. I got totally addicted to it and it felt like the forbidden fruit for me. It wasn't long until my mom caught me (not while wearing it, but because I misplaced the shoes slightly in the wardrobe) and explained to me how normal guys should never, under any circumstance wear these kinds of shoes for any reason whatsoever. This was the first time I can remember when I got angry at my mom for a legitimate reason, and this what I consider as the source of my introversion and why I tend to keep things to myself. Up to that point I felt like I could talk with my mom honestly about anything, share anything I wanted with her without angry judgement. If there was one person I could ask about literally anything, it'd be her. I was wrong. When she left home, I started to cry. It felt like my new favorite toy was being taken away from me with no compensation for the sacrifice. I reluctantly agreed that I won't wear those shoes again, I had no other choice, but it was clear for me from Day 0 that I won't be able to live up that promise. I was able to keep it for about 6 months, but after that, I was back to wearing them whenever I could. I just had to wear those shoes, I was missing that elavated feeling so much! Afterwards, it wasn't long until I was "caught slippin" again and - to put it lightly - she wasn't happy about it. She called me a sexually misaligned person and gay multiple times (even though I never was, the sight of naked handsome guys never turned me on sexually and it's a pretty immature thing to assume just because I happened to like wearing high heels) and she said that she'll never expect me to ever be in a real relationship or have grand-children from me. Nonetheless, I carried on fighting for my high-heel-addiction, but from then on, I became a lot more careful about when I wear them and how I put them back when I'm done. Fast-forward a couple of years and my brother broke up with his girlfriend. She had a couple of items at our place which my brother all returned to her as soon as the "deal was done". Except for one. A beautiful white ~7cm high heeled sandal that she originally wore on her prom and then never again. It was completely forgotten, in the bottom of a wardrobe, even I didn't know we had it and not even the girlfriend was looking for it. It happened in early 2012, so by this point point, it's safe to assume they totally forgot about it. It wasn't until months later when I unearthed and re-discovered it. I couldn't believe my eyes. Originally, it didn't feel right for me to just "inherit" someone else's shoes like that, but after a little bit of thinking, I realised that I was only 15 at that time and wasn't quite yet able to organize a "handover-meetup" with this girl all alone without mentioning it to someone in my family. If I would've mentioned it to someone, my mom would know it as well, and yeah... not a wise thing to do. From that point onwards, I considered it as a gift from God, for all the hardships I had to go through in my youth and hid it as deeply in one of my tiny chests I had at the time as I could. I wore that sandal A LOT, I still have it and cherish it to this day, but it definitely shows it's age despite me taking good care of it and never wearing it to street. It says it's size 38 but my current foot is size 43 and can still wear it just fine, it literally expanded with my feet due to me wearing it so much, growing up alongside me, if you will. Up until 2019, it was the only high heel I owned, until I decided to overcome my nerves and started going to stores as man looking for high heels and buying them. Back in 2012-2013, I did wear a few of my mom's shoes to the street before I progressively outgrew them (overall 5-6 times) but we live in the middle of the capital city and I was so nervous that I have no idea how I'm still alive today and didn't die in heart attack back then. It was just 20-30 minutes of walking per occasion but I passed at least 500-600 people each time. A few weird looks (and my heart rate being 3000BPM) aside, everything went smoothly each time. Didn't want to wear my "God-gifted" irreplaceable beautiful white sandals to the dirty streets and didn't want to risk dying either, so I haven't wore high heels in public ever since. And just like that, I'm a grown-ass man who's today a proud owner of 5 pairs of high heels, crushing on a girl who likes guys that also have a bit of a feminine side, I have a lot in common with her and I pray to God that things will eventually turn out well with her. Still living with my mom, I love her and have respect for her but I don't care what she thinks about this side of me anymore. I know it's quite a lot for a simple introduction, but I just had to finally get this story off my chest after so many years. Thanks for reading and if you have any questions, comment below! Cheers!!

  7. Just got these Nine West ankle boots... Brand new and very inexpensive on ebay. US women's size 10.5 and the fit perfectly. The exact style I love, nice pointed toes and classic stiletto heels. Super easy to walk in with 4.5" heels and comfortable, have put a few miles on them already. And, being ankle boots/booties, they are easy to pack. Yeah, I know, the levis don't fit properly inside the boots....I just pulled em up to expose the short shafts....D

  10. This has been an interesting discussion about streetshots. I guess my motivation for not taking them has to do with my sense of decency, rather than any legal reasons. Along those lines, I actually saw an actual woman in the actual grocery store the other day wearing actual stiletto heels! I estimate that the woman was about 35-40 years old, and she was wearing a dress that was not super fitted, but I wouldn't call it casual, either. She wore plain tan pumps with stiletto heels approaching the 4 inch range, not super tall, but definitely serious heels. She appeared to know her way around them, as she did not appear awkward at all, walking quite naturally. When I saw her, I almost blurted out, "Wow, someone else who actually still wears heels!" But I didn't, instead. Also, I did not take a picture. However, I do have the following picture of what I was wearing in the grocery store, along with the vehicle that transported me there. Yeah, I didn't have a whole lot to get this week.

  12. We do irony, but only in Facebook memes. It pains me to no end to interrupt this banter--sometimes HHP is at its best when we're not discussing shoes--but I have an announcement to make: I have actually bought a pair of boots. I know, I know, unbelievable, but there is actual winter here in Iowa, and I'm not up to the level of that Snow Maiden woman from Togliatti, Russia. Vince Camuto boots, 4 inch heel, no platform. They fit a little bit better in the shaft than my other boots, which is good. I paid 100 bucks for them on Poshmark. I haven't actually worn them anywhere yet, but I can already tell it will be no problem when I do. Sometimes it's good to back off on the heel height a little bit for the sake of utility.

  13. Ok, So i have been into heels size 2017 and all my family know. When i go out in public, i usually wear a 3" Block Heel, my friend got me to whear the below heel (picture taken today) when i went out to a local Pub for dinner. These are a 3" heel Trainer. I was always way too nervious / shy to wear they type of heel in public. now i have done it, i want to do it again. Got to take my car tomorrow to BMW for a service, I plan on wearing them.

  15. I posted back in May, 2019 that I bought these sandals for $19.95, regular $168. I said at the time I wouldn't have much chance to wear them but recently I have had several opportunities, just around the house. The 5" heel took a little getting used to but all is fine now. These are the highest and most feminine shoes I own.

  18. I will say the sales people at Jimmy Choo stores have been very friendly and have been happy to let me try pairs on if they have my size (40 pumps, 41 boots). I have a few pairs of both that are quite comfortable, but I usually get them for about 1/5th MSRP used.

  19. Just my normal summer look. Today at the grocery. As always plenty of looks and at least two women snapped images, one at the meat counter and another at the gas station. The 2nd one's husband went into the store. I followed about 25 feet (8 meters). He mafe it a point to hold open the door for me. Kinda cool, and clearly obvious he wanted a better longer look. Cool with me, I'm not expecting to be unnoticed in red stilettos and shorts. Sorry for the pic quality, reduced images on my phone.

  27. I’ve been doing more outings fully dressed in women’s attire and really high stiletto heels. It’s something that I wrestled with myself for a while but I just said, what the hell and went for it. I feel wearing a nice pair of tight fitting skinny jeans or a dress complements the heels I have on.

  28. I wear western style 3" heel boots when i can find them. One day I was walking out of a motel and met a nice looking lady coming in. She looked down and said "I love your boots!" I told her, "thanks, I do too!" she stopped and talked a bit and mentioned that men's fashion is so plain and went on to ask where I found boots like that. I looked at her kind of sheepish, and told her I found them on the other side of the store. She looked at me funny like she didn't get it and I say, "They are from the women's side of the store." Her eyes perked up and she got a huge grin and said, "Good for you! Most men wouldn't even think about wearing women's shoes."

  29. I have been wearing the boots with 4” heels around a bit now, but since we are working from home I haven’t been able to put in some extended time in them until this week. I went to an out of town conference and put in about 70 hours on this boots in 4 days. There really is something magical about that 4” heel height threshold that changes the overall look. The shoes started more conversations than anything I have worn with 3.5” heels, and people commented or asked how tall I am, despite being a relatively normal 6 feet tall without heels. And they feel so great to wear too. 3.5” feels so normal to me now, and that little extra stretch to 4” is a noticeable and nice feeling on the feet.

  30. Along those lines, I think the photo below is about as high as you can go and still not be sort of fetishy looking. There are certain makers who seem to be able to add a centimeter or two to this and get by with it, but it doesn't much matter, because hardly anybody can walk in them anyway. I wonder how many Christian Louboutin Hot Chicks et al. actually get worn, versus how many are simply admired in the display case.

  31. So here i am, by request of a special member in this forum. I am not sure what to expect, so let us see what happens. What seems to be the main interest here: i am sorry to say that i do not wear heels all the time, only part-time. When my husband comes home i will be in heels, but most probably an hour later not. I will wear heels when shopping or going to the theater, opera, cinema or to some kind of festivity. I do not love heels, i like them for the effect they have on my appearance, and of course the effect they have on the male population. So that should be all for now, have fun when doing your thing, that is what i do! Helen

  32. The past few days, while out traveling I had occasion to visit the official "Center of the World." It is an interesting, and little known "monument" in the small town of Felicity, California (population 2) in the desert west of Yuma, Arizona. The location has actually been proclaimed the Center of the World by resolution of the Imperial County Supervisors as well as the Government of France. It was still warm in the desert - 90 degrees - and I was the only person visiting on this day. As I wandered around looking at the displays and imagining the dedication, research, planning and cost that went into this project I was approached by a caretaker, she and her husband built the place. She was very friendly and informative and gave me a mini tour even tho the place was still closed for the summer - they "officially" open on December 1st. We spent about 20 minutes together and when we parted, she said with a smile , "I really like your shoes." I was wearing my kitten heels sandals (see attachment), a pair that I have had for a while and really enjoy wearing. She asked if they were comfortable - they are - and asked if I wear them all the time. I told her that I am one of "those" guys who like gals shoes and enjoy wearing heels. She said that she also likes heels, but has never seen a guy in heels but can fully understand why I would enjoy wearing them. I told her that wearing gals shoes is something I have done for years, it is just a choice that I have made in my life. She told me that I looked great and we all should do what makes us happy in this short time on earth, the Center of the World included. A link to the place is below if anyone is interested. http://www.felicity.us/home.html

  36. Like many others here, I was young, probably 11-12, not only did I have mom's shoes but two older sisters. I only really played around and wore them for short periods when nobody else was home, but that didn't last that long. They didn't really fit me by the time I turned 13, and am not sure I was really hooked yet, it was a just fun little novelty at that point. It wasn't until about 2 years later, 14, maybe 15. It was my best friends sister, I had a huge crush on her, she was hot and wore fantastic 4 inch heels pretty much all the time. I had a lot of sleep overs at my friends house and occasionally had opportunities to check out her closet, try things on, etc. I wear women's size 10, and she had tons of pairs that were 9 and 9.5, many of which fit me just fine. She had one pair of 4 inch white pumps that I am sure she forgot about, they were buried in the back of her closet, buried under a mountain of other things and were scuffed and not in the best of shape and I thought, "she wouldn't miss these", so I ended up taking them home (not proud of that), but that was really my first pair of heels and I was hooked now. I still didn't have the courage to buy my own pair until I was probably 17 or so. I kept a pretty small collection/stash that I wore mostly in private until I met my future wife, about 10 years later, who was very understanding and open to my experimentation. Well, that opened the flood gates. I wear heels more often than not, and my collection now is really just excessive and I have a hard time keeping it from just getting completely out of control. She has occasionally expressed some unhappiness with it over the years, but for the most part she still supports my quirks

  41. Just had these Naturalizer Callie Boot in within the last hour. A great stretch for me from my 2.5” Cubans, these are 4 inch, the specs say they are 3.5” with a .5” platform, the size 12US/9UK/42EU is closer to that elusive and brilliant 4inch number. They are comfortable, you don’t feel as if it’s a heel you are wearing, really good footbed if a few millimetres too narrow, not a deal breaker. Only issue is that the tounge doesn’t stay in place when pouring your feet in to them. The leather wrapped heel is a lovely addition to a killer boot. The reviews I read were correct, they fit a half size larger. It’s how short your stride becomes at that 4 inch marker. Stunning boot for the fall/winter. Will look great with some jeans, t shirt and a long down coat or a trench coat I have coming. I worried about the sizing, now I don’t have to worry, I can wear this size with socks. Will now be looking at other Naturalizer boots, and other companies. I’m attending a wedding in April and want a nice pair of shoes/boots for that!!!

  44. Hi Femininefeet! I'm glad you enjoyed reading my story and thanks for the good wishes, they mean a lot to me right now! To answer your first question: kinda yes, but also kinda no; it's not much different than in the US, I assume. You can walk in heels as a guy on the streets mostly with no issues, but you'll definitely going to get a lot of attention from other people. Most people will just look at you and think "Hmm, that's a weird guy, why does he do that, does it make him feel good..." without actually saying anything bad to you. Other times, you'll see people shaking their head upon seeing you or -in good cases- smile at you. Only in the worst of the worst cases you'll encounter people shouting homophobic slurs at you or start a fight with you (thankfully, that has never happened to me). It really comes down to when you go out and what neighbourhood you're exploring. And people indeed aren't really tolerant with LGBT-communities and with regular "cross-dressers" alike, especially the 45+ year old audience who grew up during the communist era in a very different world. Back then, stuff like this was completely illegal and thus unheard of. Younger folks who grew up in the 2000s and 2010s are more tolerant with this topic. German retailer Deichmann is the only store (that I know of atleast) that sell size 43+ womens' shoes here in Hungary. So, if you don't like what they're offering, the only option you have is to order shoes Online from abroad. I do buy shoes at Deichmann and order from the PRC (China) in tandem; physically going to the store is more convinient for me, while the selection is siginificantly larger Online, like on AliExpress. I have a lot of female friends with larger feet and even they complain that they can't find shoes in their size, so it's definitely a negative. Definitely going to share pics in the coming weeks and months, stay tuned!! Best wishes!
