  1. Had another compliment on my Asos leopard boots yesterday. At an orchestral concert in central London. She was oriental, at least 30 years younger than me, and with her male partner.
  2. This seems to be based on a widely circulated story, usually called "The Outfit". Can't immediately find an online reference but here's something I had on file:
  3. Took a screenshot, saved as JPG. Was 117kB so it loads here without trouble.
  4. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/av/uk-england-hampshire-59745374
  5. Evans no longer exists and most shops only go to UK8, sometimes to UK9. For fetish/glam/goth footwear (Pleaser, Ellie etc) Alternative Footware are reputable: https://www.alternative-footwear.co.uk/ For mainstream you could look to Magnus and Long Tall Sally. I'm sure there are others. By googling "large womens shoes uk" I found this for example: https://www.prettybigshoes.com/shops?location=uk
  6. Went to see the new West Side Story film last night. Rita Moreno doesn't have a big part this time but she is an absolute star. She was also executive producer. Apparently during planning for the film Sondheim and Spielberg were SS1 and SS2.
  7. Some amusement here: https://www.cartoonstock.com/directory/p/platform_shoe.asp Not sure where this extreme platform picture came from. I found it on my PC in a file dated 1999. The domain name that's visible no longer seems to exist. Falling off these could be rather nasty. Doorframes would be another hazard for many of us.
  8. Love them or loathe them, platforms seem to be making a comeback. Lots of articles earlier this year and this the other day: https://www.theguardian.com/fashion/2021/nov/28/walking-tall-platforms-are-shoe-of-choice-for-the-party-season Possibly also for men: https://www.justjared.com/2021/11/26/tom-daley-rocks-a-red-suit-platform-heels-for-2021-team-gb-ball/
  9. For men's shoes most places seem to convert UK9=EU43. For women's you often see UK9=EU42. Since both UK and EU sizes are meant to be the same for men and women this is just plain crazy. In theory a single increment of UK, US and EU sizes is meant to be the same amount bigger. Real world says that sizing often verges on random.
  10. I am UK9/EU43. I ordered my boots from Asos in UK9 and UK9.5. I kept the 9.5 and used them with a contoured insole. The UK9 would have fitted well without but were less comfortable. I know that conversion is an inexact science. I've often seen UK9 equated to EU42, at least for women's footwear.
  11. Not necessarily. When I bought some heeled boots from Asos earlier this year they were available in sizes up to 12 or 13. As were several other styles. I went back to the website a month or two later and found some sizes greyed out. I think that geyed out simply means sold out.
  12. This article makes a claim that most chargers are fake: https://www.mobilefun.co.uk/blog/2018/11/how-to-spot-a-fake-phone-charger/ Another article about fake chargers: https://www.electricalsafetyfirst.org.uk/media/1119/counterfeit-and-imitation-apple-chargers.pdf It's possible that the German authorities police these things better than in the UK. Here it's largely driven by complaints to overworked Trading Standards organisations. There is little or no pro-active enforcement.
  13. Asos have 28 styles of men's footwear that they called "heeled": https://www.asos.com/men/shoes-boots-trainers/cat/?cid=4209&currentpricerange=0-220&refine=attribute_1046:8642 The mere fact that Asos have a category of mens footwear they call "heeled" means that they regard it as something approaching mainstream. OK, they're pretty modest heels by some guy's standards but it's a good start.
  14. Works fine for me, though gives a security warning. It's 24MB so if you have a slow connection it may take a while to download.
