    It took a little while to get approved, but now I am here. I have had a love of heels and stockings as long as I can remember. However, I hadn't worn them until the past few years when I found that a friend had the same size shoe as myself. I tried hers on and have progressively become more bold. It started mailordering shoes and boots and wearing them in private. I took it to another level by going to thrift stores and trying them on as quickly as possible and occasionally wearing them while I drive. I've since gone to larger shoe stores and department stores to try them on and while I still try them on while no one is around, I'm less concerned about wearing them while another shopper or associate comes down the aisle. Getting caught wearing them the few times has never garnered a bad reaction so far, so it empowers me to be a little more open each time. I've taken to finding more secluded public places to walk around a bit, but only twice have I specifically walked into a store knowing full well people may notice. The set attached are from a visit to a local park, there were a few people walking around.. but not really near me. At first I bought these on a whim without trying them on at a Charlotte Russe store, the only time I have purchased shoes with the help of a worker and wasn't sure if I would like them. However they are very comfortable to walk in. I thank those of you that have shared previously, as you have all helped me along with my journey. In fact, my approval to this board has inspired me to get up and get out as soon as I am done posting.

    I popped into a branch of McDonald's the other day wearing some black over the knee boots with 4" heels and gold buckles worn over grey sprayed on denim jeggins, after ordering food i sat down to tuck into my quarter pounder with cheese and large fries. As i was eating i noticed a woman about a similar age to me (mid 50's) sat the other side of the aisle, she couldn't take her eyes off me and whenever i looked back at her she kept giving me a big friendly smile. After about 20 minutes she walked to the dustbin behind me then still with a drink in her hand turned to me and said "i hope you don't think I'm cheeky but would you mind if I joined you" I told she was welcome and to take a seat, she complimented me on my boots and apologised for constantly staring at me, she also asked me about how I felt about wearing such boots on full show in public, i told her that i had been wearing heels and boots for so long now that i never really think twice about it. At this stage I was wondering who she actually was and why the interest in me. She apologised again and explained that she has a husband who also enjoys wearing heels, she said he only ever wears them at home and has never considered venturing out in them, they both considered it totally inconceivable that a man could even think about going out in heels whilst keeping their male identity, and here she was looking at me as bold as brass in otk boots without a care in the world. We chatted for about an hour and she was looking for advice on how she could get her husband to be a bit more adventurous with his heeling, i said maybe they could go out together both wearing heels to possibly take some of the attention off of him to which she thought that might be a good idea, eventually we had to say goodbye and regrettably i never thought to exchange numbers to keep in touch. I may never know how he progressed in heels but i will definitely keep popping into that particular branch of McDonald's in the hope of meeting her or even them together again

    So I have been reading all of the comments about wearing heels in public and how to do it and what to wear. I have been going to some low end box stores and wearing really long pants to hind my pumps. I really like to wear very thin stilettos. I feel the pants mostly hide them and I avoid people the best I can in the store and then make a dash for the door when it is clear. Look at my phone and go about my business. So this has been working, no confrontations or anything, not even sure if anyone notices. They sure do make a lot of noise as all of these stores have tile floors. So yesterday I went into a place that I have been to a few times. This time I have new black pants that come down perfectly to the bottom of my shoes. I decided to wear my Black Platform heels. They are rounded toe and very easy to walk in. I have attached photos. So I go in and have to walk by a greeter and I go to the shoe section to see if there is anything I can by for myself or my girlfriend. I have two ladies come by me and look at shoes and make conversation. I didn't thing anything of it, I did find a great pair of heels for my girlfriend and went and bought them. As I was leaving the greeter stopped me and shook my hand, he told me I had everyone in the store checking out my shoes. I didn't know what to say, I just shook his hand and said "thank you". The lady that was looking at shoes with me just said have a good day as I walked by her. Thinking back I wish I would have asked him to elaborate a little more. Was it a good think or a bad thing in their mind? I would love to know what they were thinking. Was I a really weird guy or just that I had crazy high heels on and I am a guy?? Any thoughts from you all? Have you been confronted? I have a few friends that know I do this and they have told me who cares what people think, just do your thing. It was a great feeling to say the least but left me wondering more. Your thoughts...

    OK, let me try to upload some pictures here, instead of to any of my "albums": In any event, I got these nine west boots at the local thrift store a few weeks back. Size 12s, a little loose, but OK. The leather is very soft, and they are easy to walk in, have logged a few miles in them so far. Sorry, the photo quality isn't great, need a lighter back ground.

    So, I decided to get a black pair from Skyscrapers heels to go along with my red pair. Unfortunately they sent pointy toe when I'd ordered round toe. They quickly offered to let me keep this pair while they have a round toe pair made. I like that kind of service! I figured it would be a show of good will to order a pair they had on clearance. Zip up ankle boots will be easier to throw on then the thigh boots for practicing in 5.5" heels.

    Took a trip out for a couple of hours yesterday in some new boots that I got for great price, and this is my first time doing it in skinny jeans. This was for sure a bit nerve racking for me, usually I am a bit more stealthy about my heeling adventures, but for some reason I really wanted to push things further this time

    Been a while since I've posted here. Quite a few new addittions over the past months. Most recent are a pair of Bordello Bella in white and a pair Bordello Teeze wide fit in White. Already had a pair of both of them (Bella in red and Teeze in black) but I'm such a big fan of them I had to get more. Also got this pair black heels by Blink a while back. They are black 'foe' patent. They are becoming a bit dull (white-ish haze), anyone has a good suggestion to make them shiney and black again?

    Just spotted this thread so a bit late to the party! I voted sometimes. While I don't own many pairs of boots, I have to admit when wearing them, much prefer to show them off over jeans or jeggings. Sometimes feel like wearing my boots but choose to cover them with long boot cut pants - a waste perhaps - although I still get the feel good factor while portraying a more conservative image.

    So I went to my S.O's house to clear things up for the rest of the year and I brought my Pleaser Adore 2043 boots with me for her to try on. When I got to her, I showed them to her, sge dived strsight in and immediately got them straight on her feet! She got up in them and walked in them with minimal effort. Later on, I put the boots on my feet and she donned her boots I got her for Christmas last year. During the time outside we had a high heel boot showdown then took our photos of us in our boots.

    I don't wear heels to work, construction and heels don't mix. But I do wear them when I go out, shop, drink and eat, coffee, and hang in the city

    It has been far too long! I'm still wearing heels about three days a week and still rotating my assortment around to keep my selections healthy and fresh. Amazingly I was able to hit the Nordstrom Rack lottery (it had been a long time) and found this first pair in my size. Amazingly it seems that the size 13 section is making a slow comeback (however only a dozen or so total pairs and many still at near inflated retail) and the size 12 area is back and decently sized - for you guys and gals who take a size 12. These are BCBGeneration and I've noticed with their size 12 and 13 heels sometimes they tend to be using what looks like the size 11 heel, so they come up just a hair short. It's not very noticeable unless you really look for it up close but it's something I've come to expect. It doesn't throw my stride off any and the shoes are always really comfortable, but it is something to keep in mind if you put miles on your heels over hard surfaces. I tend to be on carpet most of the time so it's not as much of an issue. These are kind of a textured matte black but are still smooth to the touch, something I call "80's faux leather." The second pair are Christian Siriano for Payless, the "Habit" pumps that it seems everyone is divided on. I tend to wear a 13 in nearly all heels (exceptions made for some Torrid 12W styles, some MUCH older Payless 12W styles, and an occasional pair of Nine West 12M that fit loose), and that's what I ordered in these. Yes, as many have said, they fit tight - to begin with. However after breaking in, these fit PERFECTLY. I cannot think of a pair of pumps I've owned in my life that fit so perfectly. I wish Payless would restock these in black so I could get another pair, along with the faux suede dark teal and silver. Another case of Payless only paying attention to the complaints. These really do have that perfect "foot to shoe" fit and look, but yes, they did have to be broken in.

    Just had a nice little comment from a young female clerk at the local grocery store on the shoes pictured. She said "your walking around in heels even I can't walk in". I told it's because I like them. She had a very warm smile on her face. Just prior at a gas station several Latino men in a van took in the image in a different manner, but they kept their comments to themselves, I just smiled back at them. A span of 15 minutes, two polar opposite reactions, but that's OK because I enjoy myself in my heels.

    Ive been a member here for years but i never really participated much. Ive been getting back into my love for heels and i ended back here reading everyone's experiences about wearing heels in public. I decided i was going to go out! I decided i will go to a DSW a few towns away. So i got out my nine west black leather booties with about a 4.5 inch heel and a half inch platform and a pair of jeans that cover all but about a half inch of the heel. I got dressed and headed out. Drove 30 min to DSW and parked, sat in the parking lot for a few minutes trying to muster up the courage to get out. Eventually i said screw and just got out of my car and walked into the store. There were maybe 5 people in the store, no one seemed to notice me besides the one sales women who told me all their sizes are on display but they can order other sizes. I didn't really see anything the i had to have, but i did try one a few different heels and walked around in them untill i found the next pair i wanted to try. I ended up leaving and since no one really noticed and all went well i decided to go to Nordstrom rack right down the road. Took me a few minutes to get out of the car again. But i did and went into the back of the store. Unlike DSW's carpet floors Nordstrom has tile floors so my heels were quite loud and i noticed a few women who looked up when they heard me getting close. I browsed through the shoes but didnt see anything for me or my girlfriend. I saw one girl about my age (mid 20s) look down and smiled when she saw my shoes of course i smiled back but that was as far as it went. So i walked out of the store and back to my car. And headed home First time out in heels was a huge sucess. I wish i would have done this sooner!

    I wanted to stretch myself a bit further, put myself in public areas with no chance of backing out. But OK, not with really tall heels, wearing my Clarks Gelata Fresca Boot. Only a 2 inch heel, but still a woman’s boot. I had to travel for work this week, both directions with one stop to change planes. Outbound trip, I wore the boots from home, with customer facing work cloths, kakis and company shirt. The kakis pretty much covering the heel. Parked in the offsite parking, jumped on the bus with just a few other people, the heels in plain sight. Checked my baggage. This is one part of why I wanted to do this, after checking my baggage, with other shoes, work and sneakers, this was my point of no return, no chance of backing out for the next 6 hours, which turned into 9… And went through the security where I had my only real hiccup. I have Pre-check, did not take off the boots, and they do not go through the metal detector without going off. Tried it twice, removing belt first, then sheepishly, more for having to do it than anyone seeing me taking womans boots off and putting them on the conveyer. But the rest of the trip was amazingly great. Walking in the boots everywhere I had to go. Having aisle seats in which anyone could look down and see them. Not a problem. On the trip back the next day, I was second guessing if I wanted to wear them again. I actually ended up wearing them the whole day and was wondering if my feet were going to be sore. But on the way to the airport, I couldn’t not wear them for the thrill. This time I was wearing a pair of jeans, which had a smaller diameter leg, and the jeans sat all the way up above the heel. It didn’t really bother me. It just added to the pushing the limits in that everyone could see. Checked my bag again wiping out any chance of changing my shoes for the next 6 hours. (Thanks God it still ended up being 6 hours.) This time I took them off before going through the metal detector, standing out as the only Pre-Check person removing their shoes. I had to go through Chicago on the way back, my connection in far different terminals. It was a good 15 minute walk. Felt great as I was literally walking among thousands of other travelers in the terminal. Man, it’s been a while since I have been to O’Hare, but it is literally crazy busy with thousands and probably multiple thousands of people walking, standing, sitting around you. And I just having fun walking among them. I have another trip in a few weeks. I’m thinking of wearing my Clarks Mission Alfa booties which have a 3 in heel which will stand out even more. I am looking forward to it.

    Well it finally happened. A while ago I mentioned to my wife about me wearing heels. Yesterday, we had some time alone and I wore heels around her as we did some housework. Not glamorous, but successful. She was more accepting then I hoped. What a wonderful woman. Her main concern was was for my feet and legs. Dont think she will accept public wearing for some time, but she did enjoy watching me vacuum in heels. Thanks to everyone for their support.

    Well I'm a huge platform fan. Platforms say show attitude, even more they scream "Look at me". Because they are attention getters and they make my legs look really good. To those who love single soles more props to you but us platform lovers gotta stick together lol!!!

    Loving that outfit Cat! I had a happy occurrence myself in a McD's a couple of months back. It was about 2am on a Friday night in Manchester. I was feeling brave that night, so I'd been out for a wander in my new Jeffrey Campbell black suede Lita ankle boots, which have a pretty high heel and platform, with skinny black boot cut jeans and a grey knitted sweater. I was a bit peckish so went into the restaurant and queued up to order. Almost immediately a group of 3 pound girls, maybe 18 or so, joined the queue behind me, and I could hear the muffled comments when they spotted the boots. I turned to see one of them angling for a picture with their phone, so I asked if they wanted me to pose for a better shot! This started us chatting, with all the usual questions about why I was wearing heels and was I gay. I replied happily, and explained that just because I wore heels didn't mean anything about my sexuality, and that, at the end of the day, people should wear what they like, its only clothes after all. At this, one of the girls gave me a big hug and said "Aww, I wish you were my Dad"! In 5 seconds I went from possible fashion icon to feeling very very old, and I'm only 45! Ah well, at least I made them smile...

    If it was me, the next time you go to meet her just wear a pair of heels, I'd only been seeing my girlfriend a couple of weeks and i just picked her up for a meal out wearing some black stiletto knee high boots, she did ask why I was wearing women's boots to which I replied I'm not, these are mine, i asked her if she liked them, and she said i didn't think i would but actually they look really nice, we've now been married 29 years and i still wear higher heels than her, if she loves you it won't matter what you wear

    Was in need of some OTK boots as I currently (or previously) didn't own any. Couldn't decide between the Chinese Laundry luster or the Aldo Graziella, so when I found one for over 50% off on Ebay I just got both. Stock pictures below. Also a review on Aldo for anyone interested. I think the Aldo are a bit classier, they are very soft. Kneebooted, the jeans tucked in I think looks better. When you wear them under jeans you get the awkward bulge at the top of the boots.

    Typical it's my day off and I've woken up earlier than normal. So I thought I may as well post about my first ever public outing from earlier this week. Wasn't sure if I should post this here or for everyone but thought here wouldn't break any forum rules. I had ordered two new pairs of ankle boots one with an 80mm stiletto heel the other with a lower 55mm cone heel. In hindsight probably the lower pair would have been the best choice but since I'd ordered them first the stilettos arrived first.I also figured maybe I should just go for it and not try to avoid the stilettos otherwise why had I bought them? I had got them to wear and so decided I would. I got off the train from work in the evening having decided today was the day, feeling confident and ready to go for it. It was early evening around six thirty pm and all the other commuters were like me heading up the well lit main road from the station to the parking in the town centre. I changed into the boots and took my first steps, initially waiting until the last crowd of commuters had gone. I figured if I found I hadn't mastered the heels around the house I didn't want to be unable to walk with confidence in public. As it was I was ok on them but immediately noticed how much smaller steps I had to take. I didn't feel too noticeable in the way I was walking but the noise sounded like gunshots, well at least to me. I walked to my car which took about twenty minutes calling at the cash machine on the way. Passed several people on the high street who took no notice, hardly surprising as I was dressed in my work clothes, so unless they noticed the heel noise they were hardly likely to think twice. By this time I'd also come to realise that the best approach was to be confident and treat this like any other evenings walk to the car. I passed the front of the Indian Restaurant in town where several people were looking at the menu outside, again no reaction. Driving home I was happy I'd taken my "first steps" and started to plan where my growing confidence was going to take me next, more on that later.

    Hotbed some skinny jeans at a Levi outlet, thigh boots seem to go well with them
