  1. Well, I did it. First time in heels in public. Guys, SKIES DON’T FALL. Those who have not done it, do it. What a feeling, inclusive, and adrenaline filled. Went to the city centre, to look at new TVs as ours is on the way out. Walked down the main thoroughfare and it was busy for these pandemic times, but it was no where near normal levels pre pandemic. Had a few wobbles, especially on cracks and those disabled bobbles we have here in the UK at traffic lights to let the visually impaired there’s a traffic light here. I took my 4 inch Nine West Cacey 9x9 boots, I decided that why not… Life is too short to play it safe. Dressed with my Levis with the long inseam that covered most of my heels, leaving a inch or so visible. Also wore a black Vans T-shirt and my Mackage bomber jacket. Oh and my face mask, great for anonymity. The sound is amazing, the feeling is great, got a few disparaging looks, but also had a thumbs up. Interesting thing happened, there was a fellow MALE heeler out as well. Gave him a nod of approval, as his were on display. As it wasn’t great weather there was lots of trainers on. The amount of heels on show from the women folk is also increasing to a incredible level, lots of lug sole boots, a pair of JC Litas and some stiletto pumps. There was one bad thing that happened, the balls of my feet were burning. After 45 to 60 minutes in heels I had to change into my trainers (sneakers for non UK folk). I even done the taping of the toes trick, it works. Thing is, I have done it, been out in heels, proper high heels, not 2.5 inch Cuban ones. I guess my next outing will be longer. Now looking for that opportunity. Might look for something with a slightly lower heel. Guys who have not heeled in public, do it, it’s something that you will thank yourself for. Even if it was for an hour or less.

  2. Went out for my first adventure to a department store. was nervous and was walking around the aisles dodging people. then got the courage and went to the open area and up the escalators. nobody said anything or even really notice except one lady who I noticed followed me for a bit I did a u turn and saw she was filming me. so I said to her if its easier I can just stand still so you can take a photo. she mumbled something about she wasn't taking a photo but I could clearly see her holding the camera up at me and with the video screen on. haha anywho was a fun thrilling day out.

  3. I found these ankle boots in the local thrift store today. I was there looking for some women's jeans that might fit tighter, found a pair but there is no dressing room so won't know how the fit until I get home. These boots were waiting for me though, I wish they had pointed toes but oh well. I do love the block heels, they fit perfectly (for once), and are super easy to walk in. They look like leather, but I don't think they are. That's OK, can't complain for $20. I will enjoy them in vegas this weekend, hopefully the women's levis will fit properly. Finally figured out how to convert men's waist sizes to women's, so I guess I wear women's size 11-12 jeans. The last picture is of me waiting at the post office to inquire about a lost package, two of the postal workers complimented me, so I will consider this purchase a success.

  4. From a comedian to a war-time leader of a nation of 44 million; I have nothing but respect for Mr. Zelensky! This guy's balls must be made out of titanium, especially now that Russia's on their doorstep and he still refuses to flee in order to defend Ukraine's integrity and democracy; other world leaders should look up to him. Слава Украини - Glory to Ukraine!!!

  5. I manage to get a second day in a row to myself! Went out sunday to a rather large shoping mall an hour or so away and did some shopping. Sadly everything was very picked though and I didn't end up finding anything. I wore my faux leather pencil skirt and my black aldo boots! It was a fun day wandering around but now I'm on the look for some stiletto boots since I think they would have completed this outfit a little better than these block heels.

  15. Heelers : I have been married three (3) times , divorced the same number. All of these women knew of my high heel interests from the get-go . My first wife questioned, If it came to a choice, would you get rid of me or your high heels ? ( Who or what do you love the most ?) For me wearing high heels is pleasurable and psychological .I loved my wife but she had NO understanding toward the position I have been in since childhood , I believe the woman I knew thought I could be fixed like trying to fix GAY . This is why I am a member here , Holding a place amoung people of my own making . Mike

  16. You look perfectly proportioned with 4.5" single soles, even 4.75". My foot is larger and I rarely if ever wear less than 5". However, 5.24 is really my max everyday shoe height (single soles of course). Here are some of my more experienced heels by Pleaser although I really don't wear Pleaser all that much anymore.

  17. I recently bought these Steve Madden "Ronni," or possibly "P-Ronni" pumps. I'm not sure what the significance of the "P" is, but it says it on the liner of the shoe as being the model name. I bought them from Poshmark for 20 bucks plus shipping. I bought them to possibly replace my Steve Madden "Daisie" nude patent pumps, which are disintegrating from the inside out, even though they've only been worn a few times. This phenomenon has been discussed elsewhere on this forum, and I still am undecided about whether to get rid of the Daisies. So far, the only downside to this deterioration is that you have little pieces of PVC material all over your feet when you get done wearing them. Although both pairs of shoes would be termed "nude patent" in color, which is a bit of an ethno-centric description in my estimation, they are not the same color at all. The Daisies are more pinkish in color, the Ronnis less so. The main difference is that the Daisies are very pointy toed, and the Ronnis are almond toe, which I prefer. Also, the Daisies have much thinner heels throughout their length, and come to the floor at 5/16", or 8 mm in thickness, whereas the Ronnis taper down much more gradually to 3/8", or about 9.5 mm. You would think that this would make the Ronnis sturdier, but this does not seem to be the case. When walking downhill, it feels like the heels on the Ronnis are bending slightly rearward with each step in a way that doesn't seem to be the case with the Daisies, despite their significantly thinner heels. Upon close examination, neither shoe seems to have a loose or weak heel, so this may be my perception only. This only happens on downward slopes, so it seems to be a mere irritant. The heel height on the Ronni comes in at 4 5/16", slightly lower than the 4 5/8" Daisies. It may seem a little obsessive to measure the heel height to the 16th of an inch, and I even thought so myself, until I ran the numbers through my calculator to discover that it's right at 11 cm. Coincidence? Maybe. The experience so far has been mostly good, although when I first got them, the Ronnis were so tight that I almost couldn't get them on. I was going to re-Posh them straight away, but having learned from experience that it's a bad idea to make a snap decision about such things, I tried them several days later, and managed to get them on without too much trouble. After an hour of wearing them around the house, they seemed to straighten up and fly right somewhat, so I decided to wear them to church yesterday, which meant I had them on for a total of about 4 hours yesterday, 75% of which was either standing or walking. They're still a little on the tight side, but not to the point where I'm going to get rid of them just yet. My feet were tired, but not unreasonably so. No blisters, no hot spots, nothing like that, so I guess I'll keep them for now. I decided to try wearing a dark outfit with these light colored shoes, which I've never tried before, but I've seen a number of women do this. You can go back to January 15 on this thread to see pictures of the other pointy shoes for reference if you so desire. P.S. I do not know the purpose of those little black loop thingies that sit under the arch of your foot on the insole, but they are definitely there by design, and not as a result of something pulling apart.

  18. A friend suggested shorter shorts with heels, as it’s often a bit warm for jeans or pants in south Florida. I do think I was noticed a lot more then when wearing long pants.

  22. Ain't that the truth! It might also explain why you see so many international flight attendants who are heel popping out of their pumps walking through airports. The shoes probably fit correctly by the time they reach their destination! I think that is what most people do not understand. We actually enjoy walking in heels. Nobody believes us. I will keep the secret, I promise!

  24. High Heelers: I need some clarification on this (OG) thing . Are you talking about the day or time we signed on to this site, or our age ? I signed up Aug. 30, 2010 . A considerable number of people have dropped out since then. One person ( who had all of his shit in one envelope ) was - Iloveboots. We met several times under the Real Meet program . Some of the woman ( no longer with us )were Gena and Pantera . I miss them all . Of late lsolathor & Helen . SOOOOO, this leaves us with age . This coming July I will be 82 years old . When I depart this site I will be dead - I have left instructions that I an to be cremated in my highest high heels . My motto - Keep your heels and standerds high . Mike

  25. Going from 4,5” to 5,5” is a big jump. Reaching our limit each 5mm more can be a challenge. About training the only and not perfect way I found is to go outside,in the dark,to rather busy places ( more secure) with the shoes hidden with boot cut jeans. That’s not perfect but better than lonely places at night or struggling in public in day time. There are what I personally consider as a good “ training “ pair of shoes

  29. Shyheels..... You are so very correct. It really bothers me when folks make the heels = homosexual connection. I wear heels, love wearing heels and I am NOT gay, as are several other heel wearing guys I know. On the other hand, I know several gay guys who don't wear heels, don't crossdress and probably would not think me in heels is cool. Some people who know me and and have seen me in heels have even asked my wife if I am gay. She thought that question was both funny and ridiculous. She told them "no." Yes, some heel wearers are homosexual, and the drive-by media unfortunately play full speed into that stereotype. Whatever, that mindset will probably always be around, at least for the time being. I don't conform to stereotypes, but that is just me. And I enjoy my wearing heels as a "straight," guy who has a slightly feminine side. Have fun wearing your heels! Smile.... sf

  33. What is with these people making videos about men wearing high heel shoes ? They make a BIG deal about wearing heels for an hour or two, or a day on the street or where ever. In there male experiment of wearing heels, They put on the wrong size of heels and then walk for an hour over uneven ground or gravel then bitch or complain about bleeding feet or sore leg muscles . Also, What about the selfless "A" Holes who go to the ' Walk a mile in her shoes ' events . All they want to do is try on provided high heel shoes to find out what it is like to wear high heels with out any commitment . Then they sit around and giggle or laugh like a bunch little girls .I feel they do not care that the event is for victims of sexual abuse .If men want to wear high heels , be man enough to purchase your own high heels and wear them every day . Example, Merk Bryan of Germany or Ashley Maxwell-Lam of Australia or Michael Johnson of Ohio U.S.A. If any of you have anything to add please do so- make a comment. Keep your heels and standerds high . Mike

  38. Every once in a while, I drag out this tired subject. Some people find this subject exciting, and some cannot figure out why it keeps being brought up. In the case of the latter, sf, bluejay, and Puffer would be the prime examples of "Why on earth do you care?" In reply to this, like the song says, "I Can't Tell You Why." I can already walk and live in heels way higher than anyone else that I personally know, why would I want to go higher? I could blame it on Instagram, which has the ability to create a fantasy world where many people, both men and women, wear 5 inch heels regularly, everywhere. We consciously know that this is not the case at all, but nevertheless, that aspiration remains, and all of these years later (I am within a month of celebrating 10 years of public heeling), I am stuck at essentially the same place--about 4 1/2", or in the neighborhood of 115 mm. To be sure, there is no way I could walk in >4" shoes in the early years, at least not up to my standards of today. But I worked my way up within a few years, and my favorite heels tend to be in that 4 - 4 1/2 inch range of steepness. I have a very few pairs of shoes that fall outside this range on the high end, and obviously more than just a few that fall outside this range on the low end, for reasons of practicality. Still, I am stuck at this point with 4 1/2 being my high end. You will see a picture of three different styles of heels that meet this standard that I can actually walk in and wear in normal situations. Also pictured is me in a pair of shoes that I cannot yet wear in normal situations, Pleaser heels that measure 5+ inches, or right at 130 mm. They are beyond my capability, ever-so-slightly. Obviously, I can stand in them just fine, I just can't walk in a manner that I find acceptable for public consumption. My question to you folks is, "How do I get there from here?" I have been trying to wear my steepest heels more often, and I can tell right away when things get stretched out and it becomes easy. It usually takes about 5 to 10 minutes after I get home from work, when making the transition from relative flats to 4 1/2" heels, to feel somewhat natural walking in the high shoes. I get the feeling that 90% of it is ankle flexibility. If I could just get that extra few degrees of ankle mobility, I think I could walk in those 5" shoes. What are your thoughts?

  39. I am happy to report that on my monthly to bi-monthly trip to Costco, I saw not one, not two, but THREE other people (besides me) wearing legitimate heels. All were women, naturally. One older Asian lady had on block heeled boots of about 2 1/2" or so. A 30 something Caucasian lady had on a Cotton, floaty sort of dress with plain black stiletto pumps, which definitely approached the 4 inch range. And finally, another Asian lady, definitely on the young side, was wearing tight jeans with fabric stretch ankle boots. These boots had tiny stiletto heels that were metal, nothing insanely high, but probably approaching 4 inches, maybe only 3 1/2. This is a rare occurrence these days. Three in one trip, plus me!

  40. So, was at a friends 50th birthday last night, among a group with a wide variety of interests. I was wearing a pair of 85mm wedge pumps most of the night, and a few friends commented that they have tried heels, but their feet are killing them within an hour. I tried in vein to explain most shoes marketed toward adult activities do not have the subtle details that provide for longer wear comfort. Sadly, I wonder how many people have tried uncomfortable heels in private, and decided to forgo trying heels as a style choice.

  43. I was in Los Angeles this weekend. This morning I got on an elevator with two middle-aged (or older) women. I notice this one woman was starring at my shoes, so I said, "yes they are heels" as I lift one foot to show her. "Oh, I was admiring the buckles." The other women then exclaimed "you got small feet" at which the first women put her foot against mine to compare. I said size 10 and her shoe was a size 7.... Then the elevator reach the lobby and we went separated directions. I had my black Freebird Blaze...one of my "conservative" heels.

  45. Absolutely.. My heeled ankle boots and OTK boots are seen as “effeminate” only because they have heels, not because of any overtly feminine styling or ornamentation. They have clean lines, classical and elegant - unlike the clompy orthopaedic things that are assigned to men

  46. So I went out last night to a pub concert in this striking outfit; I had a pair of regular shoes with me but this is what got most peoples attention. Some said my jacket was made of plastic but its PVC One comment that stood out was from a trans person on my heels and said jacket. They told me I was going for an androgynous look, and I just took their compliments very well; it wasn't on my bingo card that's for certain!

  47. I had to look up Mark Bryan's Instagram for the first time in probably a year to figure out what @KneeBooted's objection was. What I remembered was a guy in button down shirt and tie, pencil skirt, and heels. What could possibly be objectionable about that? Then I had a gander just now, and yeeeaaah, I can see why he might be a little offput, given the tone and style of his own channel. It's the "Photo Shoot." Those things are typically evil in one way or another. But are they? Then you have @p1ng74's point of view that these things are meant to be outlandish for the sake of introducing new ideas and new styles that may be, and quite possibly will be, adopted far more incrementally on the street. My main objection to the photo shoots is than often, they are so photoshopped that the person doesn't look anything like what they do in real life. I'm looking at you, Vietnamese girls. You know who you are. At least Mr. Bryan still looks exactly like the same person in his photo shoots. You are quite correct, @Pierre1961. He definitely has not figured out the TikTok girl walk. There's not a lot of video on that channel, but there's enough. . . Is it good messaging? Is he a good messenger? It doesn't matter. At all. Nobody has ever heard of him. Nobody cares. Your neighbor has never heard of him. Your coworker has never heard of him. Even if they have, he doesn't live down the street from you. He's a guy with an Instagram channel. My point is that YOU, yes YOU, are the best messenger you have to dispel stereotypes and break down walls.

  48. Bluejay.... You are only as old as you feel and/or act.... If you are older than me it ain't by much, and I get the feeing that you are pretty young at heart. Wisdom and treachery are the best. Smile... sf Stand-by for my next post...... As best I can remember, I bought the “wrap thong” sandals pictured above (and below) in the early 1970’s when I was around 16 to 18 years old. I was in high school or just beginning college. For as long as I can remember, I have been attracted to gals shoes. As I got older and became more mobile, I would go “shoe shopping,” on my bike and then later by car, now that I had a drivers license. I just liked looking at shoes, and wanted a pair of my own. Two other shoe-shopping incidents I remember distinctly. I found a pair of really nice looking all leather Bernardo strappy sandals with a low wedge heel (wish I had a pic to show). They looked really “cute” and I wanted them, but again they were at a full service department store, so I had to interact with the sales folks. I was nervous, but gathered my courage and went inside. I was assisted by a female clerk who could have been my mom. She asked if she could help and I pointed out the shoes, and told her the size – 10 - I believe. She came back holding the sandals and said that the largest size they had was a 91/2, which in those days was not unusual. In addition it seemed, at least to me, that shoes back then ran smaller than they do now. She handed me the sandals and said for me to try them on, and I did. Sadly the shoes did not fit, they were a bit too small. I was disappointed and the sales lady seemed genuinely disappointed too. She made some comment about the sandals looking very nice, but telling me that was the largest size available. She did ask if there were any other shoe styles around that I liked, there were not. I gave her back the sandals and she apologized that a larger size was not available. Even though I was not able to get the shoes I wanted, I really appreciated the time, patience and understanding this nice lady gave me. I am sure she saw that I was nervous, and probably wondered why a young guy like me wanted a pair of womens sandals, but nonetheless I much appreciated her gentle demeanor. The other “shoe purchase incident” was around the same time, early 1970’s at a Payless Shoe store (I miss Payless). Payless was one of the first shoe stores, at least in my area, to go with a “self service” sales model, none or minimal interaction with the sales staff. I found a lovely and unique pair of “wedgie and strappy” thong style sandals in my size 11. I took the shoes off the rack and began trying them on. One of the sales ladies, again she could have been my mom, rushed up to me and almost grabbed the sandals from my hand. With a smile and a kind voice, she said something on the order of, “Honey (I love it when they call me honey) these are ladies shoes, the men’s section is over there.” I was nervous and a bit shocked by her reaction, but could tell that she was honestly just trying to help this poor misdirected kid. I told the lady that I knew they were ladies sandals but I liked the style and wanted to try a pair. She smiled, acknowledged my comment and let me be. She returned a few minutes later and asked if the shoes fit and even said they looked nice on me, and pointed out a few other styles that did not interest me. I put the sandals back in the box, the same lady completed my purchase and she asked with a smile that I come back again. As with the first experience, I appreciated that sales lady and her understanding and compassion. Those Payless wedgie thongs were fun to wear, but unfortunately they wore out early and went bye bye. Enough of my past experiences, but fond memories to share. It was these and other early on life experiences that validated my fondness for women’s shoes. And to make things “worse” in 1995, the “high heel bug” got me bad. Why do I and others here have this attraction? For me, I don’t know, it is just the way I am and will always be. And actually I sort of like it! In conclusion, here is a pic taken today, of the flat “wrap thong” sandals that started this tome. I actually found them hiding in my closet. They may get some use this spring / summer, even though heels have taken priority the past 20+ years! Sometimes flats are fun to wear too. Smile…. sf
