  1. Gas stations where I live are not so comfortable. Nice look in both cases.
  2. Fine looking pumps. I have found that rounded vamps can actually be less comfortable than almond shaped vamps. I also have found hose or other foot covering tend to cause my feet to slip forward into the vamp loading my toes a bit more, less friction. I'm wondering if your went barefoot in those if you would have had less long-term discomfort.
  3. Done it, but only once when I couldn't sit for even a minute I wished I didn't. Wore 4.75 inch nine west boots that I thought were comfortable until I stood on concrete for 2 hrs with no relief. Actually walking back to the car with my wife and one her friends was a bit relieving. I suggest you stand in a small area for at least half an hour. Don't sit, don't walk too much. If you start to feel soreness or cramps don't do it.
  4. That's nice. I like her pose, was that her truly relaxed or did the photographer suggest it. Either way hope you gave her a nice massage.
  5. You both look amazing. Who took the photo?
  6. I would say this is correct. We humans are animals after all. We tend to routine ourselves. Several of my routine travels have people also in routine so we see these strangers often. In my case, my Friday morning breakfast spot often has a certain ex female college basketball player who loves my heels. She's always telling me she looks forward to seeing what o have on. We have the same size feet but athletics ruined her feet, total arch collapse, so she can't wear heels.
  7. There is acceptance. I currently wear heels openly at work, 5 inch classic pumps. In years past these were considered CFM heels. I have no issues, been promoted and received large raises due to my work. When out in public I rarely get comments and when I do it's usually from women who love my shoes and wished they could wear such. To me that's acceptance.

    Yah, I'm glad to say I'm forgetting the meaning myself having moved to winston-salem from syracuse. I did live on Omaha for 5 yrs along time ago, pre internet even.
  9. I think all black and the shape would look pretty good on you.
  10. Why are these heels too extreme for you? Is only because you can't handle the height or is it because you're worried about what others think? Hopefully the prior as a little, I mean little, practice and you shouldn't have any issues. These are really not very high relative to men's sizes. If it's the latter, then it's unfortunate and part of the problem.
  11. I admit that many times the 1st impressions people have had of me is "gay". It's not insult, just not the case. Once a conversation is struck that impression goes away. Been actually told this. Then the question is "why". I simply answer because I like to.
  12. I agree he likely meant nothing negative but he he should have picked up on the facial expressions. But instead he continued to proceed despite the obvious hurt feelings displayed. I've never been known for my understanding of others feelings, I'm known to be blunt. But even I could see his comments causing issues during the interview. Aside, I really likes Mark's sling backs.
  13. Bryan was not empathetic at all. I'm a straight male in heels but totally respect those who aren't. It takes incredible courage for people who transform. I have none of those urges but if I did I don't know if I'd have the strength to go through with it.
  14. Been a little while. I have another old pair of Maddens on. These also have a hidden platform, thicker than my Darrt. These are called Lipstyck, the manliness of names.
  15. Not any of us doubted you did. How long will the remodel take?
  16. I've been going yearly now as well. Had some removal in one ear last yr, this year clean. I worn a pair of 5 inch Mary Janes. The ladies all loved them, amazed how well I walked in them. Same with the dentist and family doctors office.
  17. Ah but there is. Crazy people are getting lengthening surgery. Me, just wear high heels. All kidding aside, I'm pretty sure kidding kneehighs was complimenting your proportions. Those heels look like they should be be there.
  18. I'm proud to say I have none of the above. No Facebook, no Twitter etc either. I like the seemingly closeness of this forum and have no desire for in your face low grade internet media. Never bothered and don't miss it.
  19. I'm a 90% daily wearer. Heels are my primary go to shoes. Unlike Melrose, I go with 5 inch just about all the time. I keep a large supply of replacement tips available for this reason.
  20. Mike you still have that pair of heels? Pretty old photo.
  21. I wear mine at work but I'd never interview that way. Took years, external public observations etc. People then knew well in advance that I was a high heeler. Also I'm a good producer. Finally, after I knew it would be OK, did I introduce my heels at work. Even, still only in my work area. Never around customers and obviously not in either the factory or engineering lab. Must know your audience for something perceived as outlandish to most as a man in heels.
  22. I may need to take some home.
  23. Sounds like fun. Not a career challenging interview. I wear my heels at work but never for a real interview.
  24. Today I've got my old 1969 leather pumps.
