  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. It seems like societal pressures did a number on many of us. I remember my sister's red go go boots also...Put them on every time I was home alone....The strong desire to wear them and how they made me feel were more powerful than the "little voices" saying I shouldn't. I don't know what I would have done if I was ever "caught". Thinking back, maybe my Mom/sister did know, but let me be me....

  5. I do regular business with a local company and when there frequently see the same lady. The past few months I have worn heels when there. Last month, the lady commented on my shoes, saying that she liked them (see the above post). A few days ago, I again went to the business in heels and we had a friendly conversation but she never mentioned my heels, why would she. As we spoke she mentioned that she was an free lance part time abstract painter. Painting fascinates me, since I have no creative imagination. Towards the end of our conversation, the painter lady said, "may I ask you a question?" I said sure. She asked if she could take my picture, since she wants to "paint" me. I asked why, and she pointed the my sandals and said "that's why, those shoes would make a wonderful painting. She took my pic, we laughed and I went on my way. Will be interesting to see what she does with her creative skills. Enjoy your heels... sf

  7. 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.

  8. You're the man alright! Would love to hang out with you sometime, hopefully will develop the courage to wear my boots loud and proud just the way you do....

  9. I have noticed over the years that gals seem to notice and/or comment about my gals shoes more than guys. And the gals almost always seem to like (accept) that I am wearing a woman's shoe. Guys on the other hand, don't seem to notice and when they do are less likely to comment and if they do they seem perplexed as to why a guy would wear gals shoes. But guys that I frequently see and know I wear gals shoes are accepting, they may not "get it" but at least are accepting. Of course there are exceptions, I just don't worry about it anymore. Have fun.... sf

  10. This has been hashed over before at this site, but I have been fond of gals shoes for as long as I can remember. I met my beautiful wife in 1978 and we were married 3 years later. When we met I was actively wearing gals flat sandals all the time and made no attempt to "hide" that fact from her. Surprisingly, she never made any comments initially, but after a few dates she did ask why the shoes. I told her that I liked them, and that some pair have a unisex look as well. I eventually bought her a few pair of matching or similar style sandals that we wore together, and our fiends thought it was, er "cute." It was not until about 12 years into the marriage I caught the high heel bug (after a business trip to Argentina where there were lots of heels and I was traveling with two gals who loved shoes - that did not help), and purchased my first pair of heels when I got back home. When I showed the wife my heels she was surprised but accepting, as long as I kept the heel height to 3 inches or less, which was fine with me, I don't really like higher heels anyway. Take away. I am very glad that I made my thoughts and feelings about gals shoes early on (before marriage) in the relationship. Today we joke often about my fondness for gals shoes and sandals and I tell her that she made the wrong decision when she chose me, a guy who wears gals shoes. She usually smiles and tells me that she loves me the way I am. Then we put on some nice heels and go out to dinner. Nice. Have fun all, enjoy your heels. sf And, to the original point of this thread, I have never been stopped by the police because I was wearing heels. Wearing heels is not a crime, at least not in the United States. Unfortunately it may be in other countries. Personally for me, I have to worry about the "fashion police" as I call my wife and two daughters. Busted...... sf

  11. As a kid, I got "caught," twice. I was probably 13 - 14 years old. As long as I can remember I have been fond of gals shoes. I saved up my paper route money and bought a pair of cheap gals sandals that I saw at a local drug store chain (Thrifty's for us older folks). Fearing rejection or ridicule I hid the sandals and wore them in secret. One morning when folding papers for my paper route, my mom appeared unexpectedly, and I was wearing my gals sandals. We both were shocked. Surprisingly she did not over react, but said that I should probably wear sturdier shoes when I leave for my route. I did. Later she asked me why I was wearing the shoes, and other than I liking them, I had no answer. A few days later she took me to my pediatrician for a visit. The doctor asked me about the sandals blah, blah, blah. Again, other that just liking the shoes I had no answer. The whole experience was nerve wracking. Conclusion, I kept the sandals (mom never threw them away), and the subject never really came up again, I still wore gals sandals when the folks were not around, and as I aged and left home for school, I pretty much became a full time gals flat wearer and loved it. Into my teens and beyond, I wore flat gals sandals around the family, mom, dad etc. and nothing was ever said. A few years later I "discovered" heels, and never regretted it. As I have said before, I have no idea why I like gals shoes, it is the way I am, and I really like it.... Take care all, enjoy your flats and heels.... sf

  12. Well, it might have been "interesting", but he/she might not have appreciated being trapped into possibly making comments that were not complimentary

  13. I almost always wear heels to work and every place else. Have been since 2015. 2 years ago I started to wear knee high stiletto boots over my skinny jeans. I had a chat (meet and greet) with a new administrator last week over ZOOM. During the chat I asked if he heard about the guy who wears heels, and he said yes so I said that I was the guy. So it is something that the upper management talks about.

  15. Welcome to Squirrel's thread, where the topic can go all wonky, and nobody cares. I say Squirrel's thread because I just realized that no-one has called me "Melrose" in at least 15 years, yet the name persists on the internet. However, the name "Squirrel" is quite alive and well, and I seem to be unable to escape it. I even went to an entirely different job with an entirely different company, and I still didn't escape it. Oh well, it's not a horrible nickname, and it is perhaps somewhat descriptive. At any rate, I got a couple of things. Number One, I had my MRI on Friday. I don't know anything yet, of course, so I'm not totally sure why I'm bothering to tell. I still can't move my foot correctly, but perhaps it's a little better than a few days ago. It's hard to say. Number Two, I wore some actual high heels for the first time in a while. By actual high heels, I mean those with more than a 4 inch difference between heel and toe. Man, am I out of practice with those things. I have really let myself go. Hopefully, I did not look like too much of an idiot walking in them. It's not so much the first 50 steps that are hard, it's the last 50. At this rate, I'm never going to be able to make that high heel walking video I had planned, because I will be unable to actually do what I'm telling people to do. Don't let this happen to you! Like the liquor ad says, just keep on walkin'.

  16. I get "accused" by my wife of mixing styles too often. I'm not the "fashion plate' that she is, but I think I look nice when I go out. Heels with denim pants or slacks and a nice looking collared shirt, nail polish and groomed hair. I think I look fine, even tho some "style mixing" may be happening... Have fun...... With YOUR style.... sf

  17. I was already hooked on wearing a pair of black patent leather, buckle strapped shoes when I was at the ripe old age of almost 2. In the mornings after waking they were the first items I would put on for the days activities, because in my mind possession was ownership. Then one day my ownership idea was shattered, when my sister wanted to wear them for an activity we were going to attend. As a toddler I vehemently protested, as my buckle strap footwear was taken off my feet and given to her. From then on, my distrust in others taught me to be deceitful in order to satisfy my natural desire to wear my preferred shoes became regular, if not daily occurrences. Being caught and punished were only consequential formalities. When I was 3, my sister had out grown the footwear and needed to get a larger pair. Once I saw what had happened, I immediately went and got my favorite footwear and put them on, in spite of the objections. The buckle strap shoes and me became one. Only baths and changing clothes separated us. It was heaven on earth, because my most preferred desire was being satisfied and since I had shown others how much I wanted to wear them, surely they would replace them with another pair when the time came. My trust soon became distrust again when I was denied my footwear preference replacement. So I returned to being deceitful and secretive in trying to fulfil my desires to have and wear the now increasing styles of shoes I preferred. It was a year or 2 later, I saw my first pair of stiletto pumps and knew right away they were the footwear I would be wearing to satisfy my desires. From then on, when the chances to secretly wear my preferred footwear became available, rarely did these chances get passed up. These activities may not qualify as starts for wearing heels, but until I was on my own, these some times brief episodes confirmed I am a wearer of (high) heels or more to the point - stiletto pumps.

  19. I'm on Pinterest? I found out in 2015 that raising my heel by about 4 inches changed how my hip works. The pain I had been living with for 12 years dramatically reduced. And the pain quickly returned when I tried to return to flat shoes. So I basically wear heels almost all time. The injury that lead to wearing heels was rather sever and I couldn't stand or walk without heels for over 5 months. At the beginning I would hide my heels with long pants, but I got to the point I wanted to wear knee high boots and hiding them under pants was hard. And if I going to wear a $200 suede boot I'm sure don't want to hide. So pre-pandemic I would wear my heels with skinny pants and some days with knee high boots. I am also not interested in marketing my heels on social media at this time.

  20. Cali : I have seen your photos here, also on Pinterest . Are you saying that you wear high heels to work ? Question - If this is your day time attire for work, Why hasn't the media picked up on your high heel interest . There seems to be plenty of fanfare for Ashley Maxwell-Lam or Mark Bryan . Some how we need to make you and HHPlace more popular . Comment ? Mike

  21. I'm guessing he didn't continue on the topic of you in heels beyond "yes". In the business world it's not wise to, plenty of potential legal ramifications these days. Honestly, I judge it more by peoples attitudes. Since I've opened up to wearing my heels (another thread) at work the vast majority of my colleagues have had zero attitude adjustments but, a few have. These are the ones I assume are those who are upset. I won't do or say anything either to them. Some will, have been, come around as they get used to it, some never will. I started seeing this years ago since I've been public and typically have a pair or two in plain site in my vehicle.

  23. That's wonderful!! Wearing heels to work, when appropriate, is a great thing. If the gals can do it, why not you (us)? My previous jobs did not allow heels or sandals for safety reasons, but I have been considering a part time retirement job where I can wear heels at work. I think it would be fun. Enjoy wearing your heels. sf

  26. I wouldn't say crappy, but I do agree a bit more light would be great. I have a couple work lights, a halogen and an LED. When I get serious I set them one side of the camera, facing a light colored wall. If I do it right the pics are bright with the proper shadow.

  33. I have always been attracted to gals shoes for as long as I can remember. Why? Who knows? I have always found gals shoes and sandals to look nice and "prettier" (can a guy like pretty shoes for himself?) than boring guys shoes. As I got older and more independent (teen years) I got bold and actually bought some gals flats that I wore discreetly. When I went away to school, I began to wear gals sandals - flats - a lot, and no one cared. In 1995 I was shoe shopping and saw a pair of 2 inch kitten heel thong slip on sandals that I tried on, liked what I saw and bought the shoes. I was hooked from that point on, unfortunately - ha ha. When I showed my new sandals to my wife, she thought I was nuts, but eventually came to accept my fondness for heeled sandals. Now here I am many years later, still wearing gals flats and sandals and enjoying life. Have fun all..... sf

  35. These are Helens boots, she lend them to a friend for this shooting. They add a lot a safety, so Helen isn´t run over by a plow-truck during snowy season! 😉 Unfortunately these boots don´t exist any longer, due to the cracking of the patent nonleather. Large parts of it chipped off after a few years. 😪

  38. 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."
