  1. Just got these. The super arch makes these very comfortable and the round toe is a bonus.

  2. 3 months after getting them, I am still obsessed with these shoes. Last weekend I wore them again when me and my girlfriend went to a house party. I was pretty nervous, but nothing bad happened and I even got some compliments. The people there were artist friends of ours, pretty open minded people, that's why I had the courage to wear these heels. Photo taken just before going out, I once again wore boring blue jeans

  4. Finally starting to explore the city a bit more since the March lockdowns took effect. While I've been out a few times for dinner, today marked the first time I actually went out for 2 days back to back. We rode a moped from Long Island City Queens to DUMBO, Brooklyn...then back to Long Island City. In between, we explored some abandoned subway cars in an abandoned rail yard in Long Island City. Wearing heels with a passenger wasn't worth the safety risk. But I did wear my women's patent flats for which she complimented me. She obliged my request to bring her patent stiletto pum

  5. Had one errand, pick up an order at JC Penney. Ended up doing a little browsing & ended up buying a couple of earrings that were on sale & a pair of feminine sunglasses, as my only intact pair are wrap around & don't work well with my outfits when out in the sun. After that a stop in at Outback for dinner. Pretty uneventful, even at Outback, where I got tons of compliments last week, but they were very busy today. Was treated respectfully at both locations. I wore a sheath dress by Stetson from Pinto Ranch & a jeans Jacket from Cavenders, I got both of them delivered today, al

  7. I went on my morning constitutional at about 6:30 a.m., something which I have been trying to do more regularly as of late. I actually had a mission on this particular morning, I went to drop off a check for my utility bill, which is administered by my city. They have a drop box about a mile from my house, so there is no need to put it through the mail, if one chooses. I was walking to the drop box in the semi-darkness of daybreak. Normally, on a Sunday morning, our town is dead quiet, with hardly anybody about, and practically no traffic. However, this morning, I noticed a number of poli

  9. While I agree in very large part to your comments HinH, I do have to add that the public is somewhat responsible for the current situation. Back in the 1980's, we were flying to Orlando from Chicago and the airfare, round-trip, was typically in the $300-$400 range. Today, we get upset if the cost is more than $250 RT, and mostly pay less than $200. The public demanded that air travel be "cheaper and available to the masses". I'm hard pressed to think of much of anything that is cheaper now than it was in the 1980's. In the never ending quest to keep fares down, something had to give. Hen

  10. The foot steps crunching in the gravel reminded me... Years ago my wife and I were out visiting. It was late and we knew of a dead end farm road that went back along a river and decided to go back there before heading home for a bit of fun. We got there, laid out a blanket in the grass, (it was mowed, someone keeps the area in shape), and were just getting "warmed up" and unbuttoned then we heard this loud snarl, like from a mountain lion, and we do have them in the area. My wife leapt to her feet and was in the car in a fraction of a second, I am not sure her feet even touched the ground

  12. 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 cur

  13. Abandoned places in Long Island City. Long Island City is the western most part of Queens. It’s distinct from Long Island. It’s a very common misconception so don’t feel bad. Regarding the moped type, it was auto transmission with floor boards. While I I’ve worn heels solo, not only did I have a passenger but I also planned a lot of rough terrain walking for our outing. So no heels yesterday.

  14. Those are definitely Instagram-worthy pictures, and in addition, the location is actually interesting. I had no idea there were "abandoned" places on Long Island! I have had similar misgivings about wearing heels riding a motorbike. I don't know what actual machine you had, but I would not hesitate to wear heels on a scooter (auto transmission with floorboards, rather than footpegs). I really don't enjoy riding a traditional motorcycle, the kind that has footpegs and you shift the gears yourself, in heels. It sounds kind of exciting in theory, but the reality doesn't live up to the fanta

  18. Yes, I've had that lament as well, but I wonder if it would have been awful more than it would have been wonderful. I think it probably would have been, just because of the time. I know I didn't have the mental fortitude to take the kind of abuse I would have gotten in the 80s.

  24. Jeff, you must have a large storage area for your clothes. On many outings you purchase multiple new outfits and I often wonder where you store them. I have a 10 by 12 foot walk-in closet and It's bursting at the seams, so I imagine you must have a enormous closet (or warehouse).

  25. Jaunt #556, 9/20/2020: Today’s outing, what I call “Errand Sunday” represented a stark reminder of the upcoming change of season. Even though it’s late September, the temperature was quite brisk despite abundant sunshine, making it feel more like late October or early November, bringing to mind the fact that I’ll soon have to swap out my spring/summer attire in favor of fall/winter stuff, rather disappointing since, thanks to the lockdown, I only got to enjoy eleven warm weather trips since my return to jaunting on August 9th. Bummer! Well, for pre-fall trip number twelve, I opted for a denim

  26. So, today, let's talk about heel wear. As you all know, I have ceased wearing stilettos on walks because the heels wear out too fast. I have made an exception with my latest purchase, the Shoedazzle "Alexa" rainbow colored mules, pictured elsewhere on this forum. They have 4 3/4" or 12 cm heels with no platform, making them among my steepest heels. While I was talking on the phone to a friend, I decided to take a walk in them, just to see if I could manage a mile in them. It was rather easier than I thought. So last night, I decided to give them my true two mile test, which has been my standar

  27. I have two pair of Jeffery Campbell Lita-man's Size men's 11. I would be thrilled to find others in Women's 13 in any color. I also have a copy of ordered copies of the Lita Spike. Not authentic but nice enough for me.

  32. I dunno, the hippie chick claims it's not that hard in those heelless shoes, but like I said before, our conversation got interrupted. I do not know whether I shall pursue the subject again this Saturday or not. I'm thinking not, unless she is the one who brings it up again. Assuming we even happen to talk again. I'm kind of fascinated by the fact that of all the shoes she could have shown me, she chose these outrageous ones. Because not only does she not look like a heel wearer when you meet her, I'd estimate that she's somewhere in the neighborhood of 6 feet tall. Obviously, being 6' 4" or b

  34. I was caught this morning by the secretary at my office. On most Fridays, a good number of my peers work from home with the remaining staff starting around 8am. I typically get in at 6am so I can enjoy my cup of coffee and sift through all the weeks emails in peace. Over the few years that I've been at this firm, I've become more relaxed in my persona. We are a "progressive" company where most people are generally open and respectful of others peoples viewpoints and persuasions. Because of this atmosphere I started wearing my heels during this quiet period. I've always figured at some po

  37. Welcome "incredible"... You seem a little uncertain, perhaps conflicted. We have all "been there, felt like that...". Do you like these heels? It is not how we feel about them, it is about how you feel in them... I don't think any of us think we look good wearing heels and PJs. You are a straight guy, what clothing do you like to wear with heels? What outfit do you think makes you look and feel good? Perhaps post a picture of you in that outfit. Have you ever worn your heels publicly? Do others know about your interest in heels? Welcome, you are among friends here... I

  39. I feel your pain, and yet at the same time, I'm doing my best to ignore it. I showed up at the farmer's market to set up my wife's tent last weekend in shorts and a t-shirt, and it was a little crisp! I got by with it because I was physically moving the whole time, setting everything up, it typically takes less than 30 minutes, and I'm outta there until it's over. It would be a different story if I had to sit there for four hours.

  45. A couple of years ago I was invited to a party held by a friend of mine at her house. Of the approximately 20 guests I knew about 5. Due to some reasons I arrived as the last guest. When I entered the house I noticed a pair of black leather boots leaning against the wall. They had stilettoheels that was at least 14 cm high. Directly I tried to guess wich of the guests that might be the owner of those sexy boots, none of the female guests had any heels over 3cm in height, so I found no obvious candidate. During the evening I passed the boots and could see that whoever owned them had small

  46. Hi All, I just wanted to share an experience with you that I had whilst coming home from work one day last year. I had just boarded my train a bit earlier than usual, and a beautiful mature lady stepped onboard wearing a gorgeous pair of 6" black stiletto pumps and seamed stockings. All of it was hidden under a long black coat. I had the painful view of watching her from behind as she walked down to the end of the carriage. Not many people seemed to be that bothered but it was a heart-pumping moment for me, because I've never seen a woman wear such mouth-watering heels out in public befo

  47. Back in 1994, I worked in Boston as a mailroom clerk for a large finacial company. As a 20 year old who had a closet "thing" for heels, I was just starting to get out (working in Boston helped) and buy some "stuff". Well, I was working 2nd shift then (3-11:30PM), and my shcedule would be such that I would do my last mail pick-up run to another bulding (about 3 blocks from the mailroom) at 10:45, get back to the mailroom about 11:20...sort through the mail really fast, leave, catch the subway and get to my train about 11:50 in time for the 11:59PM train to my hometown (last of the night)...
