  1. I am one of those lucky fellows who has U.S size 9 feet or EU 39-40, depending on who is making the shoe. I imagine that if I had been wearing hosiery of some sort, it might be possible to slip off a shoe without using my hands. I do not wear stocking or pantyhose, but I do have several pairs of trouser socks in several colors, as the situation dictates. For example, it doesn't look right to wear a traditional men's suit with no socks at all. And in fact, I did accidentally walk out of my pump on my way to church a few weeks ago, and right in front of one of the neighbors, too! Luckily, I have
  2. Your earnestness is quite charming! My first reaction was, "Oh come on man, that TikTok was some funny shit." But then I got to thinking about it. And I'm like, "I'm going to try it. Right here, right now, at 5 o'clock in the morning." So I did. As I suspected, this method no worky-worky for me. My feet are shaped in such a way that my pumps have to be rather tight, probably too tight, or I walk right out of them. This is why I don't wear pumps too often. There is no way that the toe of the opposite shoe can gain enough purchase to pop the heel out, or even get it started, for that matter.
  3. I actually did get my second Moderna jab in high heels, but that was kind of accidental. I didn’t expect to get it that day, they just had some extra doses left over when I stuck my head in the pharmacy. But since I don’t have a picture, I suppose it never really happened.
  4. That assumes, of course, that we (or they) agree on what reality is. I do sense a certain reticence to turn this into a thought exercise, so I'll just abandon that train of thought in favor of perhaps a more helpful and productive one: It's probably too much to hope for, but I have noticed a change in the way people reacted to me back in 2012 compared to how they react to me now. I'm not sure that any of it is anything other than dumb luck.
  5. I ran across this rather humorous clip the other day, and I thought of this thread. I don't know that this comes from TikTok, but it sure is in the style of TikTok. There's something there for both the dangling enthusiasts and for the people who don't quite get it. https://www.instagram.com/reel/CNHxPUVHL8s/?igshid=1ggj86d23vaml
  6. Heck, I figured that was just a bump-out in the wall. Perception vs. reality? Haha! See discussion elsewhere.
  7. René Descartes walked into a McDonald's and ordered a Big Mac and a large Coca Cola. The kid behind the counter asked him, "Would you like some fries with that, sir?" Descartes considered it for a moment and said, "I think not." He promptly disappeared. Bah-dum-bum! I assume that we are not talking about this kind of basic philosophical perception, where if a tree were to fall in the forest, and my wife didn't hear it, would I still be wrong? That is another joke, by the way, for the benefit of those for whom English is not your first language. I think that one of the biggest proble
  8. I would love to jump in on this, but I'm going to do the sensible thing, sign off, and make it to work on time. And that is at least my perception of reality. In actual reality, I could probably be quite late with no actual consequences, but not every day. To be continued, perhaps.
  9. I don't feel like those are a whole lot wilder than some of your other shoes. Was it the animal print that made you think twice, or just the sheer mass of the wedge? Also, I can't figure out how you got your feet to go like that. Are you, like, insanely flexible? Let us know how things go out in the real world. I've actually had some good luck with the Chinese stuff as far as comfort, and sometimes even durability. Then again, I've had some bad luck, as well.
  10. Eight years ago, when my heels were lower, and the general style of heels was higher, there were a few ladies who occasionally wore higher heels than me. Today, it is not even close. For a small town, it is a pretty good sized church. Back in the day, membership exceeded 1,000, and you'd get maybe 250 to 300 on a typical Sunday among three services. Today, I'm guessing it isn't even half that, and that's pre-pandemic. We do not know what the future will bring. I know we've lost some people, but we might also gain some people. You never know. Everybody knows mainline protestant churches a
  11. My Easter outfit. It's the first time I haven't worn a jacket to Easter services, perhaps ever, but I thought it looked better without the jacket. Shoes are Nine West Bellafina.
  12. I can kind of understand that feeling, although it’s not as acute with me. There have been a number of work functions/meetings where I could have worn heels, but chose not to because I felt it would make life easier. Funny thing is, if there’s anybody who could get away with it and not lose any respect, it would be me. I’m just not ready yet. I mean, we’re talking money and my livelihood here.
  13. I have already found a practical use for one of the several low heeled (<3") sandals I have bought recently. Changing the liturgical flags at the church! It's basically wearing flats, I can't really tell the difference. Because I can't tell the difference, I wonder how much I'm really going to wear them. Time will tell.
  14. I think it is possible to become quite a bit more flexible at an older age like we are, but the sheer dedication and the amount of time it would take is probably not worth it for the sake of achieving such a narrowly focused skill. Yes, it might be kind of fun to learn to walk en pointe, but am I going to spend years training to be able to do it? That's what it would take for me. So, no. Probably not. My friends will simply have to remain unamazed.
  15. I'm glad you found something to wear with your normal guy clothes. I have never carried around shoes in the car for that very reason. If I'm not wearing heels, I'm probably wearing other clothing which would not go particularly well with heels. Some people would violently disagree with me and say that the rest of your outfit doesn't matter, but I refuse to wear filthy, greasy work jeans with heels. They don't go together.
