Wearing my "girls shoes" outside in public was never a big deal for me. They were "my"shoes"' weren't' they? Wearing heels was a different story however. I was older and social obligations during middle school and high school limited my opportunities. I still wore them to the movies and such other occasions where they were less noticeable. College, a wife and three little children, along with a 10 years as a pilot in our Air Force (which ended on medical disability) really put a damper on heels activity. But, over the years, opportunities to which I took full advantage, presented themselves. Over the years that I've been a member here, I've posted many comments outlining my life in heels. Search my posts and comments in the archives if you are interested in finding out more. It is a long story.
