    Well today is the day! I felt well enough at work that I got back into my heels tonight. I initially put on my Jessica Simpson knee boots, but the sole on the right one is now severely separated and until I can apply some adhesive to it to remedy the issue, I won’t be trying to do any walking in them. However, I opted for my 4” Steve Madden boots, as I figured the more time in them, the easier it will get! The one downside to the new place is that there is no full length mirror to get a full picture. So for now, it’s just the boots...

    My latest acquisition: Payless "Zayden" over-the-knee boots in black faux suede. I wore them on an outing yesterday and found them comfortable and easy to wear, even though they didn't come in wide width. And, I caught a sale as they were on clearance and spent all of $15 bucks (normally $45) after shipping.

    Yes I enthusiastically thanked each person because they offered positive encouragement. I have enjoyed dressing up since I was a teenager, and am open to experimentation and improvement. In the office and business meetings I am almost always the only guy wearing a blazer, etc. My goal with heels is not to suddenly transform my overall look, but to expand its boundaries. Based on the reaction from the street, I think it is working, because the heels have not garnered any more attention than wearing a new blazer or tie. Most people take cues on dressing appropriately based solely on what everyone else is wearing. I like the idea of putting together my own style that is still befitting and appropriate.

    Wow! Funny, I always thought that it might be a good idea to know some marshal arts as a fellow out in heels.

    Finally received my first comment today on my heels, and a second one the same day! First was from a coworker at the break area. “Those are fancy boots, they make you so tall.” I think this is what most people see. There is nothing outrageous about wearing black suede heels, and most people would take a passing glance and notice nothing more than dressy shoes that happen to have a heel. Second comment was from a male sales associate at Nieman Marcus Last Call. He just said “Nice shoes!” By the way, I have done a bit of shopping these days and finally discovered that Last Call has by far the most comprehensive selection of shoes in size 11+. Literally, they have rows and rows of highest quality heels in large sizes, beyond anywhere else I have ever seen, and marked down to prices that make shopping anywhere else almost idiotic. I didn’t buy any shoes as I think I am quite satisfied right now, but I did come across a pair of lambskin pants that I had to get. Again, my mind is a little blown at the discount price I paid for real lamb skin... and to think, it I didn’t have the creativity to just look around in the women’s section, I would have never seen it.

    Jaunt #483, 1/12/2019: With winter holding the region in its grip, along with snow on the way, I thought I’d get in an outing, even though temps struggled to crack 30, conditions were perfect to wear a miniskirt, nothing else came to mind for this jaunt as I wore a quilted, black coat with a fur collar over a dark gray turtleneck, my black 15 inch denim miniskirt, gray leggings, a black satchel bag, a light gray scarf and my newest footwear acquisition, the Payless “Zayden” over-the-knee, flat heeled boots in black faux suede. While the concept of OTK boots on a fellow who stands six foot two might be a bit of false advertising, nevertheless, the boots looked good on me and, more importantly, they were comfortable and easy to wear. Oh, yeah, I caught a great sale as they were on clearance, so I spent all of fifteen bucks on them before shipping. Pretty darn cool, eh? As I previously mentioned, it was awful darn cold outside, but I was good and warm in my outfit, thanks to the new coat, scarf (which I had fun wearing), leggings and boots, and I felt I looked stylish as well, I wouldn’t have left the house if I didn’t. When I don women’s clothes on my little adventures, I obsess over looking my very best so I don’t stick out like a sore thumb, hopping in the car, I changed up my usual routine and motored downtown and over the Ben Franklin Bridge into South Jersey and to the multiplex across from the Cherry Hill Mall where I watched the Transformers prequel, Bumblebee which I liked more than I thought I would. After the movie, I drove across the road to the mall, predictably packed on a Saturday afternoon for a late lunch at Saladworks in the food court, then I indulged in a long, leisurely stroll through the mall, winding up in the Apple Store where I checked out the newest incarnation of the iPhone X and MacBook Air, both of which I liked a lot, but all I left with was a $25 App Store gift card for myself, on my way back, I stopped in JCPenney for some more shopping, having come away with a cowl neck sweater tunic which I figure will look good with my leggings and cool looking poncho, I’ll be sure to show off both at my earliest opportunity. Driving back into town, I made my way to the Rittenhouse Square Park area and, after some twenty minutes spent looking for a space, I parked some two blocks away from the park and headed to my friendly neighborhood comic book shop where I enjoyed a lively chat with the staff about the Eagles’ win in Chicago last Sunday in the first round of the NFL playoffs before heading out with the week’s newest books. It felt chillier than it had been earlier in the day, but I was still good comfort wise, if anyone stared, I’m sure someone wondered how I could stand to wear a short skirt on such a frosty cold day, but I was nice and warm, again, wearing anything other than a mini was a nonstarter, regardless of the weather, that’s just how I roll. More to come....

    You’re too kind. This is becoming a really eventful visit, the woman sat nearby when her husband disappeared to the toilet leaned over and said gorgeous boots and they look great on you, to which i replied thank you, if you come here around this time most weeks work permitting you may see a range of different boots, and she said great I’ll mark that in my diary, her husband then returned and they left giving me a cheeky little wave behind his back, I then spotted a young girl about 10 or 11 look at me then lean to her mother to whisper something, she seemed to that I’d spotted her and got a bit embarrassed, her mom whispered something back to her and then smiled at me, i wonder what that was about lol. Another group of 3 girls ranging from about 16 to 19 ish walked in and the one girl was wearing the most gorgeous pair of otk leather heeled boots, didn’t have the nerve to ask her where she had them from but oh my god i want those boots. So glad i came today and can’t wait for future visits now

    Glad to hear about your back @KneeBooted re selling the boots - just consider it carefully before you, do... as buying new ones will cost you more and also, before you sell.... make sure to capture pics of them all!

    Happy Birthday HHP. As a military commander might tell his unit; "Congratulations on a job well done". That is what I would say to Tech for 13 years of dedicated service. Yes, you are right there are several members here who have, through their own example of doing and writing, experiencing and documenting, the wearing of heels by men can be fun and liberating and they found the only heretofore obstacle to doing it was the mental barrier they had erected in their head. No sky was falling and no bogeymen jumped out of the bushes. If the website continues to inspire other men then it will have continued to have fulfilled its goal of bringing people together through understanding. OMG, I'm starting to sound like a community organiser.Seriously though, I thank Tech for being the community organiser we all needed. HappyinHeels

    Happy Birthday to us... Happy Birthday to us.... Happy Birthday dear HHPlace Community.... Happy Birthday to us.... HHPlace is today officially 17 Years old! The community has come a long long way in the last 17 years and knowing all of the original founders, one of whom was a good friend back then too when he passed the community over to me to look after (13 years ago) has been a lot of fun and at times, a bumpy ride... I only wish that in the last 17 years, wearing shoes would not still be such a taboo. You would actually be considered more of an oddball if you were barefoot! We can however celebrate that several members here are on a daily basis proving to the world that its actually not an issue and its simply the fear in your own heads that are holding you back.

    I've posted these in my album too, but obviously HAVE to post them in this thread too had some good quality time getting to know my new pairs of boots this week, as well as an OTK pair I bought last year but have hardly worn. I must say, the OTK (or even thigh high feel) is almost intoxicating! Here first are the high heeled OTK boots, called KENDRA from Asos. I had them in my saved items for a good while, and then they went out of stock. they suddenly came back in a size 9 UK during the sale a few weeks back, so that was the sign I needed from heaven, so I grabbed them - probably a single pair that was returned or something.

OTK boots I bought last year, also from Asos, called "KEEP UP": https://www.asos.com/asos-design/asos-keep-up-flat-over-the-knee-boots/prd/8012318?ctaRef=my orders

    I wear standard pumps cause I can step out of them if need be - although I have only had to take my heels off twice out of heaps of flights. You know - no buckles, straps, zips or laces - just the low vamp pump. Heel around 4 inches, or whatever you're comfy with. They can be worn with trousers/pants or a skirt You can slip your feet out of them easily on the plane.

    Cool moves - just goes to show that if you can do it, you can do it in heels. Poor firearms handling though. Switching hands to rack the slide is ineffective. Plus the first thing I noticed about him was the uneven sagging boot shafts. Perhaps it only stayed on his body because it was an unloaded plastic gun...

    I was amused to read the other day that the cabinet minister in Japan who is in charge of computer security had never used a computer and did not even know what a memory stick was. Whatever he may lack in technical nous it can’t be argued that his communications - all on typewriter, apparently - must be the most secure in Japan.

    @pebblesf I agree some notice, and it might take time for people to process it and think of something to say. In the meantime, I’m enjoying the feeling of wearing and walking in an extra inch. Went out shopping and walked around a bit yesterday, logging 3.3 miles according to the health app. Tonight I decided to play with the suede look:

    Youbetcha..... Airplanes (including helicopters - he he) and High Heels, the best of both worlds!! I find reading aircraft accident investigations to be both fascinating and life saving. But when flying (piloting) I leave the heels at home, or at least in the suitcase. Have fun..... sf PS.... Melrose, sorry - sorta got off topic here. Now back to the regularly scheduled programming in progress.

    I often pick a pair of stilettos I want to wear out and then choose the shirt to match the color. Yesterday I wore a pair of Steve Madden light brown 5 inch open cut booties, more like pumps, with dark blue jeans and a matching light tan polo shirt. The jeans covered 2 inches of the 5 inch heels witch were fully exposed when walking or sitting. Here are some pictures of the way I looked, should post more images going forward. I went to my favorite dinner for breakfast in the morning. Took the shoes off for work (a factory setting). Went to the store afterward then out to dinner with my wife in the evening. We sat at the bar of a restaurant we often go to when we go out casual. The bar has very high chairs and several normal height tables were along the same aisle. These were all full of patrons and I'm sure my heels were noticed by many.
