  1. It really feels like heels are a dying trend, like the corset before it. Because fundamentally, heels are not pleasurable to wear for most people, and given the choice, most people go with flats. Take a look at what the kids wear these days, it's all athleisure/streetwear, skaters shoes and sneakers. The internet casual-fied everything and that includes clothing. Those computer companies that have taken over most major metropolitan areas in North America have people going to work in jeans and t-shirt (hell I've seen people going to interviews at computer companies wearing a hoodie and jea
  2. My local thrift store's selection of female footwear ends at size 10 Female and I'm size 12 Female. Sad.
  3. Thanks @m1super90, you opened my eyes to the differences between these generic Chinese knot sandal heels Domina-108 knock-offs. At 14 cm, the arch has the greatest angle, and as the heel height increase, the angle at the arch increase to allow more heel height. It makes total sense, but I didn't realize it before your comment. Now I really wonder how the 14 cm model it looks my shoe size. At 14 cm, we can clearly see the 2 bends, 90-degrees at the ball-of-foot and a noticeable bend at the arch. At 16 cm, the bend at the ball-of-foot becomes less severe, and the bend at the arch
  4. Mike, High Heels generally can bend the feet at 2 positions right? At the base of the toes, and at the arch under the feet, between the heel and the ball of the foot. This 90-degree I'm talking about refers to the angle that the arch of the foot would take when wearing heels. In the picture in the original post, you can see on the left, a shoe with a 130-degree arch, where the arch is relatively straight. On the right, you can see an arch of 90-degrees, where there's a right angle, making the heel horizontal, and the rest of the foot (excluding toes) vertical. I'm wondering if shoes like the o
  5. As title, who even makes Ballet Heels for sale these days? Here's what I know: estresmodes, which someone here said was too soft: http://extremehighheels.net/en/ Ilia's Little Shoe Box, which is supposedly inherited from the original Little Shoe Box : http://iliaslittleshoebox.co.uk Chinese Stuff, also on ebay and alibaba: http://www.milanoo.com/search?type=search&keyword=ballet+boots Punitive Shoes, which some people said had inconsistent quality: http://www.punitiveshoes.com/index_en.shtml RTBU, which looks a lot like the brandless Chinese stuff you find on aliba
  6. After a round of research, I found the "Creating a Highheeled Woman" website that was mentioned around years ago. Here: http://web.archive.org/web/20070221191449/http://newagequest.com:80/hh/highheels.html In particular, this image intrigued me: I searched around and found that even the highest heels these days have an obtuse angle of over 90 degrees, even the "fetish" heels. Which leads to the question, does 90-degree angle arch heels exist anymore, and if so, are there even any for sale?
  7. Hi all, I've been lurking for a while as a guest, and now that I actually bought a pair or two of proper heels, I'm registering this account to better understand this hobby of mine. I'm new to high heel wearing and the scene in general and would be grateful for your help. Don't mind the username, I'm neither serious nor affiliated. Kanye2020
  8. I bought a pair of Devious 1020's and they come with those wads of paper for toe padding. After a while, I found them satisfactorily functional but was wondering if more experienced people generally use something else, like some gel pads or wads of cotton, or bunched up old fabrics or, as real ballerinas use, wads of merino wool.
