    Aspiring London Public Heeler

    My knee boots don't have heels but I wear them over skinny jeans and have wandered all over London with nobody taking the least bit of notice - Charing Cross to Euston station, along the Thames path, to the Tate, around Covent Garden and Seven Dials etc. Not so much as a raised eyebrow.

    Boot "season"?

    Because of the nature of my work, given that dawn and evenings are when you get really nice light, mealtimes tend to be a bit screwy. In some of the hotels they have a business lounge , often with quite decent snacks and I will often head there and make a dinner of snacks.

    Boot "season"?

    It depends on the circumstances, the restaurant, the hotel, the mood. I’ve had solitary meals I enjoyed very much, and had ones where the food was great and I thought: what’s the point. One aspect of solitary travel I do like very much is the business lounge at an airport. I enjoy me time there, people watching and enjoying the sense of agreeable expectancy that comes over me.

    Boot "season"?

    That's a lovely story. I have had the good fortune many times in the course of my career to enjoy that sort of spontaneous hospitality and on every occasion it has been special, and left me with fond memories. Cumulatively, those experiences - and others I have experienced on the road - have left me with an impression that the vast - nay, overwhelming - majority of people are essential good.

    A great philosophy, and one I subscribe to myself.

    Boot "season"?

    I have the same mixed feelings - there is a lovely moment when you settle into your airplane seat on the outbound journey, knowing that you are on your own, uncontactable for the next few hours, and outward bound with everything ahead of you. Ditto some evenings in the hotel. But mealtimes can feel isolating, when the waiter pointedly removes the other set of cutlery from the table, and you dine alone.

    YT: Why don´t more men wear high heels?

    I knew a guy once who was seven feet tall - perfectly proportioned, too, you'd never guess his height at a distance if he was standing on his own - and he told me how everybody wanted him on their basketball team because he simply had to be great. How could he miss, being that tall. Apparently he was just terrible at it.

    Boot "season"?

    I have spent weeks living in hotels and know just what you mean. There is nothing like coming home to a plain, home-cooked meal. One really learns to appreciate the simple pleasures of home life.

    Ditto. I se no harm whatever in being labelled gay and would not be offended by it in the least. I happen not to be gay. I also happen not to be Norwegian, able to play the harmonica, speak Russian, or do brain surgery but if perfect strangers take it upon themselves to assume that I do, or am, any of those things, what do I care? No skin of my nose.

    YT: Why don´t more men wear high heels?

    I think that is the best approach by far. You Tube by its very nature is about spectacle - and anything that emphasise men wearing heels as spectacle, whether by straight men or gay, is not exactly going to advance the idea very far in anyone's mind. It will only reinforce the idea that men in heels is a spectacle, comical, unreal, a bit of make-believe, nothing to take seriously.

    The fact that they are gay will, on its own, be enough to reinforce the stereotype, I'm afraid. It isn't like there are a lot of similar videos out there made by straight guys - they are nearly all done by gays, so it is kind of a double hit. No straight-guy videos, loads of gay-guy videos - what is a person on the sidelines to think? Especially with the stereotype already there, and going strong.

    KneeBooted's Adventures?

    Very nice boots - both pairs, the knee boots above and the ankle boots above them. Quite wearable and presentable with jeans. Stylish yet unremarkable, in the discrete sense of the word, however you choose to wear them.
