  2. Since my last entry, quite a lot has happened. I met a lovely lady who is now very much part of my life Not long after meeting her I had a moment of weakness and confusion and went against my self imposed promise of never getting rid of my entire collection of heels and purged my flat of all womens shoes. Gutted. Especially since doing it I told her all about my passion for heels and womens footwear in general and she is totally cool about it. She said she's happy for me to wear them around the house but wasn't too sure about me wearing them out locally with her around which is totally fine with me because I'm not particularly confident about doing that either. She did however hint at us going out in a town where we don't know anyone and going walking in heels. I still feel a bit weird about wearing them around her which I put down to years of feeling shame about it. But it's getting easier as time passes and I feel like I can openly talk about it whenever I want. It's quite a relief just being able to rabbit on about it whenever I want. I have since invested in a couple of new pairs both of which were imported from the US from Barefoottess.com (great website for the larger footed man/woman!). Expensive but well worth it. Pics below... I've not done any public walking in heels or flats since my last outing but I feel like I'd like to again sometime. I'm really gutted I don't have those Steve Madden flats I went out in the first time because they were great for that. I'm sure a similar pair will turn up somewhere. Anyway, more to follow....as and when stuff happens. Happy heeling folks!

    Heels As A Torture Device?

    My girlfriend found this - don't know if anyones posted it already so sorry if they have. http://www.buzzfeed.com/erinchack/how-high-heels-went-from-menswear-to-womens-torture-device
  4. Today I walked publicly in "womens" shoes for the first time! How cool is that? Now, last night I was reading ILK's post called "the suit" and there's this whole bit in the middle of all the banter about suits where he goes on a big rant about how the reason some of us fellas are scared about wearing heels publicly is all in our heads and not to do with what society deems to be acceptable - or in other words we create the notion that society disapproves in our heads and that 99% of the population don't really give 2 shits. Jeff B and Pumpcat and all the other guys on here are testament to that fact as you will see from their stories of all the high heel outings they have made over the years. And none of them have ever reported any seriously bad times doing it. Funny looks and the odd comment, perhaps, but nothing really bad. It was a really inspiring piece of writing! (I think I summarised it OK?). So anyway, I took my Steve Madden flats with me when I went to town with the intention of wearing them at some point - I just didn't know when. I nearly went for it a couple of times whilst walking in more quiet parts but didn't fancy the idea of getting caught changing into them. So after my swim I thought I would just wear them out of the pool which is exactly what happened. It was a good 10-15 minute walk back to the town centre where I went about looking in a few charity shops for some clothes ("womens") but found nothing. Then I walked home and changed back out of them before getting back home cos my dad was in. Altogether it was a lovely experience. I felt very relaxed about the whole affair and made a point of not looking around to see if anyone was watching me. Nothing happened. No-one said anything or even looked at me in a funny way. That relaxed-ness was even there when I was shopping as I often feel like looking over my shoulder when I'm shopping but not today. But then I often go shopping in my home town and find myself worrying that someone I know might bump into me.. bla bla bla.. I'm not ready to take the plunge into heeling proper yet but this was the first step. I've lived with this for about 25 years now and it's only in the past 5 or so, and especially since finding this site, that I have felt going out publicly in "womens" attire is something that I could actually do. I was so paranoid about the thought before that that there was no way it was ever going to happen. In fact, it wasn't even a consideration! But now....

    Fatfuzz's Heeling Escapades.

    Well, almost-heeling-escape. Finally, I took the plunge and after going swimming I put on the Steve Madden ballerinas I have with me and walked from the pool, right through the town centre and then half way back to my folks place (I am away from home at the moment). Yes! YES!! Double YES with beans! Ok, they're not heels but they are awesome "womens" shoes and I love wearing them. It was great. And guess what happened? That's right - sweet FA! It started on the train down yesterday. I'd thrown the shoes in as an after thought as I was leaving the house as my dad is a bit tight and won't heat the house properly and the floors are always cold so I thought I'd wear them once he's gone to bed and the house starts getting really cold. So I wore them on the train for a bit and then after swimming today I just thought "F*ck it, I am going back to town in them" which I promptly did. It's a bit weird walking in such thin flat shoes but once I got into it, it was a lovely walk. Went and browsed a few charity shops (I think you call them thrift shops over the pond) for "womens" garms too but didn't find anything I liked. I am keeping a more comprehensive record in my blog should you wish to read more but I haven't written about this bit yet. Sorry about the twisted photo - it just rotated itself when I posted :/

    Entry No. 4 - First Time Out In "womens" Shoes!

    Not worthy of a complete new entry but today (Sunday 6th October) I went for a walk round the block near my flat in these shoes. Nice early Sunday morning stroll to clear the cobwebs!

    Fatfuzz's Heeling Escapades.

    Indeed Jeff - that's exactly how I'm approaching it. One little step at a time. Just been looking at rubber heel tips on ebay for some of my heels. I think I'd feel better about going out in them if they didn't make so much noise - although I do love the sound! Thanks for the encouraging words!

    Most Of You Guys Like The Stiletto Click Sound?

    It's a double edge sword for me. I do love the sound but would prefer to go stealth when I do go heeling. Not ready for attracting too much attention. Yet.

    Fatfuzz's Heeling Escapades.

    Thanks for the nice comments guys. I did it again this morning. A nice Sunday morning stroll but just around the block this time so no great distance but enjoyable none-the-less.
  11. Well, then buy heels whilst wearing heels.

    The Jaunts of JeffB!

    54?? No way! Mind you I get the same - I'm 37 and most people take 10 years off that and are surprised to learn otherwise. Go on Jeff B!

    Happened again! Photo seems to have rotated itself again..?

    The Suit.

    Great speech dude - that's the most enjoyable read I've had on here! Made me laugh! And made me think... I do like a suit but I prefer a manly approach in them - 50's style gangster vibes and they really don't work with heels.

    Who has bought some new shoes

    Awesome shoes dude - a good buy in my book. I often wish I had smaller feet so I could buy more shoes on the high street. But then I'd also have an unbelievably large collection of heels!

    Entry No. 3

    Well, they're not exactly high heels and I'm not exactly walking around town in them but I am wearing them in a public place. These are my lovely Steve Madden flat ballerinas bought from Barefoottess (a haven - or perhaps heaven - for big footed men and women). I'm on a short notice trip down south on a train and I threw them in my bag as an after thought because I like wearing them round the house like slippers. I've always found that it doesn't matter where they're from but fellas' slippers always have an old man feel about them. I might be 37 years old but I'm not ready for that status just yet. I was just sat here when I thought "Hello, I could be wearing some girly shoes here" and without further ado and without really considering who was around me I put them on. The train is quiet though so not a real biggie. But still felt much easier than it ever has before as it's not the first time I've been in this situation before but it is the first time I've gone this far. One small step at a time, I guess. It's fun tho and I am enjoying it and not really worrying about it. So I guess this is not-quite-heeling-escapade no. 1! Now, the next question is do I do the train change at Peterborough in them? Means carrying my other shoes by hand though as there's no room in my bag. Also the trains from Peterborough to the small town 15 miles to the south are much more open than the ones I am on and it will be the height of rush hour when I get there. Find out in the next thrilling instalment of Fatfuzz's blog! Next instalment: No I didn't wear them for the train swap. Got to Nottingham and it was looking busy and in a moment of weakness I took them off and slipped them into my bag out of sight. And then a woman sat down next to me for the trip to the next station at which point she left along with most of the other occupants in the carriage so I put them back on for the rest of the journey but wasn't feeling so bold that I could wear them outside of the train. Felt good though sitting there in my little flat shoes (all my shoes are little!) just reading and staring out the window. Thinking I might take a little walk in town wearing them tomorrow but that a whole new step. We'll see.

    Random Internet Finds...

    Looks just like a friday night on in Liverpool only with less hats and more cheap looking (sometimes even plastic!) jewellery... NO seriously! I was there a week ago!

    Finding Good Shoes

    When I first wrote this post I feeling a bit frustrated because of the lack of the type of heels I like being available to me. Since then, my collection has doubled and there are still a few pairs out there that I really want. Plus I am seeing much more shoes in bigger sizes that will fit properly and comfortably - something that was not available to me until recent times. When I think back to when I first started heeling (before the days of the internet) and the biggest shoes I could get were size 8UK I am surprised I got my feet into them at all! I am finding much more comfortable shoes than ever before which is just great.

    Finding Good Shoes

    Hi Everyone, I'm a bit broke at the moment so I can't afford to splash out on any new shoes - especially as I spent a small fortune on my current collection after the last EVER purge at the start of the year even though I could not afford it! But I've been sat around thinking that there's only on or 2 places I can actually buy heels I like and that's basically ebay and Long Tall Sally. I used to shop at Barratts but they haven't stocked any nice shoes in a while and the quality seems to have bottomed right out. Ebay is actually quite good fun because you never know whats going to turn up or if you'll get them! Size is the issue - I am a size 11 UK (I fit some 10's depending on the manufacturer) which equates to a US 13 or Euro 45/46. I have bought shoes from Classic Pumps but their widest fit is just too narrow. I found Barefoot Tess to have some great shoes and have made some purchases there. So I was wondering if anyone can make any recommendations for new places I can go shopping for heels? Plain 4" inch stiletto pointy courts are my standard and favourite but I like a variety of different styles like wedges, peep toes, boots etc. Check my gallery to get a feel for what I like, I guess... It's a shame we don't have Payless over here as it seems some of our american cousins shop there for larger sizes on a regular basis. I think Barratts was probably the UK equivalent and I have bought shit piles of shoes from them in the past but, like I said before, the quality of the styles and shoes is much lower than it was before. Any tips would be greatly appreciated!
  22. My dad had bunions as does his mum and my sister. None of whom have ever spent anytime in heels (actually my grandma may have in her youth but that was the '20's so unlikely to have been anything as wild as the shoes I wear!). My sis reckons she looks like a man in drag when she wears heels ( I said "so do I!") so she doesn't. I don't have bunions as such but I do feel that they have changed shape a bit and the start of bunions maybe forming. I have also become more flat footed. My point being there's definitely a genetic link with them and here is a case in point. I was thinking about getting it looked at by a chiropractor I saw for my back when I did that in as she noticed it at the time. SHe is good and I trust her - she worked wonders on my back so I hope she might be able to give good advise in this situation too. I never did tell about the heels thing tho. I probably should if I'm gonna see her again tho.

    Entry No.2

    I've reached that stage where I'd normally be thinking about purging. It used to happen about once every 6months to a year where I'd get obsessed to the point of distraction and bin all the heels because I can't cope with constantly thinking about them all day every day. My other big problem is the association with pot and the fantasy world that comes with being stoned and wearing heels. I am not going to purge this time - I am going to push through and see what lies beyond! I also feel that the pot keeps me from doing that one thing many of us strive for and often never achieve and that's find the confidence to wear them out and about in public. I have plans for a heeling holiday. I'd like to do a couple of nights in a west London hotel, richmond/kew somewhere with no scallies or scrotes (rough neck undesirable stupid types - you'd call them red necks in the US) and spend the days getting used to walking out in femme shoes. I'd start flat and slowly work my way up to the higher heels. I have enough styles and heel heights to go at it slowly and break myself in slowly. I also fancy going to some really touristy areas (London eye, buck palace etc) and it also makes perfect sense because here i really am going to be surrounded by people who I will most likely never see again. I also just need to smoke less. It's great when I've been without for a bit or I have to keep it to a minimum because of work or whatever but I have been really addicted for the last few years. I'll get over it - I have to - and when I do I think it will help me get out in my heels. I really want to and it's all I can think about sometimes but just can't find the courage. Plus I'm not confident doing it round by where I live. Need to get over the initial shock somewhere I am anonymous. You read so many stories on this site about how once people have got over it they find the whole thing a bit of an anti-climax. I can believe it and I want to feel it so I can stop the feeling of anticipation boiling away within me! The attached photo are the shoes I have ear marked for the first outing preceded by my new stave madden flat ballerinas I took delivery of last week... All this talk has been going on for a long time but it has never happened but then I've never not purged. So we shall see. Hopefully soon. I've even found a hotel somewhere for a decent price but time is limited until 2 days before xmas. Touring madness! Come on man - make a break for yourself. Get out and get heeling. You know you want to!
