    Back to the sandwich shop after a stop at the post office in my old Madden Darrts. Easy heels to wear. My jeans are not lifted, plenty of shoe as it should be. Couple extra days off around independence day. Short time in old pair of Pleasers at the home depot. Also a few additional stops. Cooling off in the neighbors pool. They say as long as i don't wear my heels in the pool.

    I think my Zoe Wittner Mary Janes are the girliest in my collection (with floral detail but still looks smart without it):

    Welcome to the site. This is a misconception, amazing looking heels DO NOT need to be uncomfortable. If you heels hurt, it your fault for buying heels that hurt. Take the time to find the pair that doesn't. It may take longer, but well worth the time and effort. The first thing I learned was "life is too short for heels that hurt." The other thing you will find is that your "style" will change over time. You may see some heels in a different style and decide to try them and they turn out to be fabulous. Keep an open mind and enjoy your journey.

    This guy is a clown. I used to be a registered republican, hated it but i did vote for Hillary. Trump was elected due to both parties inability to work together. Even an outsider in republican circles. Bothers me how the party threw away any semblance of morals when he won its primary. They didn't want him, but threw themselves at him to defeat the dems no matter the cost. I'm embarrassed by the current U.S. political system. Every time I keep thinking ut can't get worse and it does. Trump could be the pinnacle of bad, but all the dems can do is give us Biden. Lots of skeletons there too. I ramble, but we need a fresh start, a young, intelligent non partisan who can lead from the center, either party.

    Kjones92, Not sure if someone else mentioned this, but you may want to consider extra long boot cut/straight leg jeans. Long enough to cover the shoe and heel. This way you can travel relatively incognito until you are ready to flaunt it without a care. Congrats and keep pushing!

    Hi everyone! This is my first post here. I've liked high heels for many years which previous girlfriends either had a problem with or I completely kept it a secret. My current girlfriend is the first one who is okay with my hobby and doesn't mind me wearing heels occasionally. I first saw the Jeffrey Campbell LIta heels online more than 5 years ago and instantly wanted to get them but never saw them in my size except for a few occasions but only in American web stores (I live in Europe, and didn't want to order them from the US). I never completely forgot about these heels and even told my current girlfriend once or twice how much I loved them. Then to my complete surprise, she bought them for my birthday two weeks ago. Finally seeing the Litas in person and putting them on sure was a dream come true! Here are two pics she took before we went out to a bar last wekend, me with my Litas on.

    Fifty years ago this summer, Montgomery Wards Catalog offered "A Trio of Tiny Straps" Mary-Jane on a sculptured 1 1/8 inch heel. They caught my eye when the girls wore them to high school classes. I was too intimidated to go to a shoe store and make the buy. But in the fall, I started my college career and when the Wards sale catalog offered them at a price of $3.99, I had to make the purchase. I had no idea if a size 10B would fit but hoped they would ---- they did and the feeling was … you all know there is no way to describe the initial feeling. The 3 strap Mary-Jane is still a favorite design and maybe find a pair similar to the ones you found. Congratulations to you,

    Yes, I know what you mean. I've also been wearing largely the same pair of shoes for the last several weeks. I try to change it up every once in a while, but I always end up coming back. Part of a consequence of really having no place to go. I have actually been wearing my new Diane von Furstenberg wedge mules to go to the grocery store, and other such incidental errands, but they are kind of a pain to get on and off. It certainly is not a "no hands" operation. My BCBGirls Bonny mules are at once very comfortable to walk in, and yet very easy to slip on and off without hands, so that's what I've been wearing 90% of the time. How boring! The biggest problem with the DVF wedges is that they've got a leather sole. Why would you ever put a thin leather sole on the bottom of a platform wedge? Which means, I can't wear them if it's been raining at all, or they'll be ruined in a New York minute. And speaking of rain, that reminds me of a story you might appreciate, being from California. My ex-wife is from southern California, Orange County to be more specific. When she moved to Iowa some 25 years ago, we were driving around out in the countryside, and she innocently wondered out loud, "Where are all the irrigation rigs out in the farm fields?" To which I replied, "Oh, the irrigation rigs are built-in. We have developed a very effective irrigation system here. . . It's called rain."

    Centrism has an important role, but in the United States it cannot be the only driving force in governing. Since the founding, the US has been a pluralist union, and we share this land with all sorts of people, on opposite "poles" of many kinds. We would give any president too much credit if we claim that they created the polarization. People have been polarized, right or wrong, for generations. For some things, where there is widespread consensus and overarching impact on everyone, it makes sense for everyone to compromise and be governed by the majority. But in other things, the minority should not be marginalized, and we have to learn how to coexist. Historically, it seems neither political party has been particularly good about protecting minorities, and that is because of centrism. They finally jump in when the conscience of the majority finally makes it an issue for everyone, and then it finally becomes politically advantageous. Centrism is also a key CAUSE of the political apathy we are mentioning here. When both parties sound, look, and stand for the same thing, having both moved to the center, people quit engaging in politics because a vote for either side is meaningless. Take high heels, for example. The centrist majority says women wear high heels, men wear flats. I would not hold my breath for this to be overturned any time soon, nor should I embark on a crusade to change this. But I am free to hold the minority practice of a man wearing heels, and I reject any centrist majority's attempts to change my practice.

    Following some 'interchanges' between myself and admin you'll note that my gallery has been wiped. This was ultimately at my request after I'd reviewed the content and decided that perhaps there was a little bit too much of me on display. That having been said thanks to all those who 'liked' my posts and left positive comments, it was very much appreciated. This site has been a pleasant distraction during the Covid lockdown but now things are beginning to return to normal my alter ego 'StockingTop' has been retired and it's trappings cased up and consigned to the attic. So best wishes all and to quote one of my 'supporters' - 'HAPPY HEELING'

    Stumbled on this site just over a year ago and been a member for a while.I'm inspired by some of the members here past and present from reading their stories,seeing their pics and public outfits.My shoe collection keeps growing and becoming a little addicted now. I have been wanting to go public or at least get outdoors for sometime now, and wishing wont make that happen But I eventually got outdoors in heels. For the past few days I've been planning on my first outing on Friday night in central London. After meeting up with my friend i had a choice to either go home or face my fear and wear my heels which i brought with me. I stayed out and went to one of the major public parks which was pretty much empty. After 20 - 30 mins of being stuck in my head i got my Kurt Geiger booties out of my bag,got changed and started walking. And soon realised how much harder it is to walk with heels outdoors than at home.After walking around the park for several minutes I changed into my platform-less Simi stilletos which where easier to walk in. I walked around the park for 20 mins stopping a few times to sit down. Eventually I got near the road which was a little busy and without hesitation I started walking on the footpath next to the road. My heels where fully exposed (so where my booties earlier) as i was walking next to the road, and both my face and heels were visible to cars driving in the opposite direction. It felt good but I was nervous. After several minutes I got back into the park through another entrance. Nearly bumbed into a few people during my time there who could have noticed my footwear even at night, but Im sure some heard the sound. A few times part of me also wanted someone to notice me as a guy in heels, haha. Overall it wasn't a dramatic expirience compared to the early stories of others but for me it was about taking the initial step of getting outdoors and eventually making it a habbit. Since Im going to be heeling at night for now (when its darker and less busy in general), i dont mind my heels being exposed. A few times before i reached the road I wanted to call it a night as my legs were tiring but I'm glad I kept pushing my comfort zone and walking a little further with my heels exposed knowing i could potentially bump into someone at somepoint. Cant wait until Sunday night. Wont be wasting much time in the park this time, but only to get changed. I want to walk next to the road,residential areas and streets for longer, slowly pushing my comfort zone each time I go out. I will post some pics of my collection soon.

    a friend of mine saw this photo and said: oh. i didn't know you do drag. i replied: it isn't drag. its me, in authentic me mode. she said: you're wearing sky high heels, fish nets and a black mini skirt. that's drag! kind of funny because i never saw myself as drag. so then i showed her a photo of me in my skin tight jeans and white high heels and said is this drag? [Innappropriate comments removed] and so the conversation went on in a different direction but it left me thinking about that statement of hers: you do drag. nothing wrong with it, just never heard it put that way before. after all these years too!

    When I was young, I watched a movie called Little Shop of Horrors. The main heroine/love interest was a girl named Audrey (played by Ellen Greene). What I noticed about this character was these strange shoes that she wore through half of the movie. From her introduction scene, where she is stepping over a homeless guy on her way to work, to a TINY scene where she is kicking her heels in the air to keep from falling off a motorcycle, to where she is running in a panic to get to her apartment to deal with her abusive boyfriend, to where she is being eaten by the plant near the end of the movie (yes, she had a rough time in this film!), all I could think about was her shoes. This planted the seed in my mind for my fascination with high heels. This is how I chose my username. I have long admired high heels on women. I remember my crush in middle school wearing what were tan open-toe booties and could feel the blood rush to my head (I remember thinking they looked like a tan cast). Our prom, where all the athletic girls traded in their running and tennis shoes for fancy pumps and I saw a side of them I had never seen before. For the rare formal events I went to. In the professional world, high heels gave a sense of sexiness and power that I admired. And yes, Audrey from Little Shop of Horrors was my celebrity/film crush growing up. So why am I interested in trying them on? I am a straight, cis male who looks and talks like a relatively normal dude and I have zero interest in cross-dressing beyond high heels (for that matter, I have no interest in wearing them outside of my living quarters or showing them to the person I am dating. And yes, I consider them feminine attire, not unisex). I am searching for the the answer, but I believe it is because I can relate to women who wear them better. What goes through their mind when wearing shoes that look amazing, yet are so uncomfortable? How did they arrive at the shoe choice? Do they accept a male trying to explore "their" territory? Is it something of a concession on my part to have something in common in search of female companionship (whether actual or perceived)? The decision itself was not an easy one, I will say that. Favorites? Either black or pink pumps, leather (real or fake), closed/pointed toe and preferably with an ankle strap (hard to find!). White or tan color are good as well. I do not care for ones that expose too much of the foot (for me, anyway), although some types of booties are of interest. Yes, I am picky when it comes to heels. If I am going to proceed with this, I need to do it my way. Below are the first pairs that I chose to own (on special, no less!). I am looking forward to receiving them and learning to walk on them. https://ninewest.com/collections/sale/products/erra-ankle-strap-pumps-in-pink-multi https://ninewest.com/collections/sale/products/arlene-pointy-toe-pumps-in-dark-pink-embossed-croco Pleasure to meet you! Edit: And...I just realized that I forgot to change the flag from "female" to "male". Can one of the mods please adjust? Apologies.

    There seems to be a bit of enthusiasm over this style in malefashion so I bet they sold out. They have a 1.5” platform so the rise is only 3.5” in a large size - 5” sounds about right.

    Jeez, Cali. You keep reminding me about my ex-wife. The first time I ever visited Orange County, it was one of those 5 days, and I can still remember the bitching to this day. It seemed like kind of a nice sunny day to me! I just didn't know any better. My ex-wife used to say that in historic southern California, they didn't have to worry about spending so much time and energy trying to keep warm or cool in order to keep from dying, which freed up a lot of intellectual capital. Which Californians used to develop valuable and innovative things. . . like the perfect fake fingernail. Never said my ex-wife didn't have a great and wacky sense of humor. I'm just glad I don't have to live with her anymore.

    Classic Iowa comeback! I like that. There actually are at least two areas I know of in the MIdwest where the majority of fields are irrigated. A small area is in Northern Indiana. Another larger area is the Central Sands Area of central Wisconsin. It stretches from Wautoma to Stevens Point and Weyauwega to nearly Marshfield. The soil is such that it doesn't hold water well at all so there are irrigation ditches and canals and all sorts of irrigation equipment as if one were in an arid or semiarid area. Not a desert but the soil mimics what happens in the desert. HinH

    Yes, I have missed your posts. You always have a great pair of heels to display. My boots are a velour so they are amazingly soft too. I am not usually into single sole heels but I am slowly adding more depending on the style. Myself I am not a fan of single sole open toe sandals and much prefer them in a pump. Looking forward to seeing some of your outings.

    Those look pretty awesome! I like the color and the laces on the back of the thigh. I like a mix of single soles and platforms. Depends on the mood the outing and the outfit. I have to get back in the saddle as I am starting to feel good enough to get the heels back on and get out for a walk. May not be like before when I could do hours but I will get there!!

    If you go to something just a little thicker, like the boots pictured, which have a 16 mm thick heel instead of 8 or 9 mm, you'll easily get 6-8x the wear out of them. I'm talking hard rubber replacements, who knows what you get from the factory? Sometimes they're great, sometimes they're awful.

    I ran across this short video the other day. I see it is quite a number of years old, but it escaped my notice until now. I've seen plenty of people over the years tap dancing in "high" heels, but this is the first time I've ever seen anybody tap dance in truly full height heels.

    This is my first post in a while here, since I've been hands full. That said, earlier this year, I had the heels and soles for two of my Jean Gaborit thigh boots replaced - and this was after having them and worn them to some extent (max once a week) for 10+ and 8+ years respectively. One pair had about 2.5cm or thereabouts and the other had a slightly higher western heel, about 4 cm. Spent over 550 USD for the replacements, and worth every cent of that and giving these two pairs at least 10 more years of life.

    I ran into a friend at the store a couple days ago while wearing my new wedges. I did have on long jeans so they weren't overly visible, but if he had looked down, he would have noticed. Fortunately, he did not and we went our separate ways. At this point in my life, I'd rather not try to explain things to folks, so I was glad to not have been noticed.

    I will now be closing this topic, to start a new one soon for my heeling adventures. Made my first full outing in thin block heels last night, in 4 inch boots no platform. As soon as i left the house it felt strange walking on the concretee and not as easy as i expected in blook heels. Saw a car parked with lights on and another group of guys talking around my block and almost chickened out. But persevered. When i arived near Tesco store 10 mins later(to buy a few things), I nearly chickened out, i turned back twice to go home, but went in at third attempt. Again no anxiety really or intense butterflies, when coming across a dozen people, including the security woman who gave a strange knowing smile, i think. The woman who served me and other other till person would have noticed as i was walking away plus no one else was waiting to be serve after me. I had a few wobles tbh, from start to finish, but i decided to persevere initially just to avoid the regret and beeting my self up from not doing. Outing was 30mins id say (with sitting down briefly and standing) and my feet were hurting at least half that time on the way home. I will be using the treadmill to practise with 5-6 inch stilleto with and with no platform and wedges, just to get some mileage. The open toe mule sandals shown bellow at 3.5 inch with a shorter and thicker block heel. So will likley only wear these for my outings in heels , and but flats most other times, until i improve, to regularly wear higher of thinner ones. So another 3-4 weeks perhaps, until i try the 4 inches out again. Before then im planning pedicure with the mule sandals bellow and women's flat sandals. At this point its more about improving my skill and competence of heeling outside, not the fear or negative emotions as much (which i still have). I feel my plan omto wear flats first is paying off as intended, and ive been wearing more daring and feminine pairs.So heels on display was not an issue, initially it was the noise, but ultimately ability and pain were the major and only issues really in the end.

    These Aldo boots are a couple years old, but I like them. Size 11. I can wear them around my wife, which is a plus. I've worn them often, to the University where I teach, shopping, lunch, etc. I've received an occasional positive comment on them, from women primarily.

    These are 2 or 3 years old, another pair of Aldo, size 11, with track pants and an older photo in torn jeans. I prefer the track pants. The pink color is feminine as well as less attention-getting than dark colors. I've worn them many places, shopping at the mall, into Coach and H&M, at lunch and at a casino in Reno, Nevada, where I wore them to breakfast and checked out, dragging my luggage behind the clicking sounds. For some reason I've never had any comments on these heels.
