  1. I fully agree, musically it’s not a great performance. But she still manages to get through, even in high heels as an added difficulty. I am sure that many amateurs are not able at all to play this famous piece. How much legato you need for Bach, that’s a never ending discussion among organists. What makes this video interesting for me is of course the visual part. So I have to agree with p1ng74 as well: I’d love to place myself in her high heels on this organ too!
  2. Here’s another very nice video of an organist playing in high heels.
  3. I can play church organ in heels too. I have a pair of pumps with 2.5" heels (slightly tapered) which work well on the pedals. Last year I posted 2 pics in Your Favourite High Heel Movies
  4. Since a long time I had these on my wishing list: a pair of Shabbies ankle boots from Fred de la Bretoniere. It sounds French, but in fact it's a Dutch brand. Hhplace members from the Netherlands will for sure know it. Shabbies are quite expensive but this pair was a great deal ! So I'm very happy (-: They are classy in their simplicity, which is what I like about them. I'll keep my eyes open for a pair of Shabbies in another colour, or the knee high version.
  5. Hernaezjames, these are very nice sandals. I like them very much !
  6. They look very nice !!! I wish I had them in size 41. What is the brand name ?
  7. Nice to see how tastes can differ (-: I am not so into platforms, my favourites are the black patent heels. And I like the short fishnet nylons too which in my modest opinion go very well together with the pumps and pants.
  8. Indeed, very nice and lovely shoes !
  9. I'm sorry, not my cup of tea.......
  10. Miroseplant, your sister has probably a pair of OrganMaster shoes: http://store.organmastershoes.com/index.aspx/ImageGallery/Index?productId=1 Many female organists play in them. They are specially designed to play the organ pedals. I like the basic design, but I don't have them myself. Thanks for posting more videos from Kimberly Marshall. It's really amazing what she's doing in stiletto's. Tried this myself too but of cause I can't....... But block heels, or slightly tapered heels with 3" inch work very well for me for heel-toe pedalling.
  11. pebblesf, this is very recognizable. I wear heels because I like the feel and look, and not because I want to make a clear statement "hey everybody, look at me". Most of the time my heels remain unnoticed. So far I did not experience negative reactions. And I would like to avoid this to happen. But we are not alone in this world and I guess (almost) everyone will like to receive compliments. It doesn't bother me when I notice someone staring, because I am open to meet someone with genuine interest in why I wear heels. So yes, it's indeed double.... I have never seen another guy in heels. In case it happens and I think the moment is right, I'm sure I would make a positive comment. But in case the person is not responding, you have to respect that. So I think you were right not to bother the guy in boots on your flight anymore.
  12. good points, Thighbootguy ! Thank you very much And yes, the heels on the pictures are mine.
  13. My passions are music and heels. I play piano, Hammond and church organ. So playing in heels is like combining these passions. Playing the piano pedals is indeed comparable with driving a car. You can use the heel as a pivot. It works very well with my heels which are inbetween 2" and 4". There are concert pianists who perform in heels. A few years ago I found this article: http://thethingsienjoy.blogspot.nl/2013/01/two-wonderful-pianists-and-two-pairs-of.html Playing organ pedals is completely different. You have inbetween 25 and 32 pedals and one or more volume pedals played with both feet. You need to be very precise. I play barefoot or in pantyhose mostly because I can really feel the pedals. Basically there are two pedal techniques: playing with the toes only, and with toes and heels. I can't play in chunky male shoes. Female shoes often work well because they are more narrow, and some (but not too much) pointy toes are very helpful. And yes, you can even use heels ! There are special organ shoes with 1.6" heels designed for the heel-toe technique. But larger heels work well for me, as long as they are not too narrow. Otherwise the heel will end up between two pedals. Below 2 pics of my favourite pumps. But now the surprise: there are female organists who can even handle stiletto's ! One of them is Kimberly Marshall. On her website you can find a pic showing her heels on the pedals: http://www.kimberlymarshall.com/arnolt-schlick-and-meantone-repertoire And I also found this video: You may not want to watch the whole video, but have a look at 0:55 -1:05, 1:17 - 1:21 and 1:36 - 1:56 showing her incredible pedal skills in stiletto's
