  1. New Boots for Winter

    They do feel great on my feet. And I have worn the black boots in the snow. All my boots have been treated to keep the water and snow from damaging them. And thanks for the compliment!
  2. Leggings

    I am just getting into doing the Freestyle fashion dressing, so my advise is going to be from that end. I have a stylist that is working with me as I try to figure out what I like and can wear in women's clothing and believe me I probably drive her nuts with my sometimes off choices. In any case, in terms of leggings, jeggings, or skinny jeans she told me that I can wear jeggings with my heels and a long tunic dress or shirt dress. The most important part of the shirt dress is that the bottom of the shirt will cover your derriere. I have an outfit put together that should be here Friday. I will post a picture of it here for you. In terms of leggings she did not think that would be good for me to wear. Leggings are more like exercise tights in construction. Now she said I could wear with a longer dress and get away with wearing my heels with them. As for skinny jeans, they are more casual and go best with my booties, thigh boots, etc. Oh by the way, love the heels you are wearing! They are sexy as hell! Hope that helps a little! Good luck!
  3. Hello from the UK

    Welcome igotnewshoes to the site! Looking forward to seeing the pics. I started the opposite way you did in that I loved heels first and walked in them for a few years and just recently started to wear women's clothing in addition to the shoes. I have found that women have such a wide selection of things to wear while as a guy I am limited in what I can buy in men's clothing. So now I am beginning to put together outfits of both men's and women's clothing to create my own style. Believe it or not there is even a fashion trend called Freestyling which embodies what I am going. And here I thought that I was being original, hah! Anyway, welcome aboard! Check out my blog sometime, Wearing Heels, It's a Journey
  4. Greetings from the land of cold weather! That's right, that is me out at our local park thinking that I was going to get some quality walking time in my heels, you know to get my strut on. Thank goodness I did not go with my original heels that I planned to wear which were my 4.5" sandal heels or my feet would have certainly felt no pain as they would have been frozen by the twenty some degree winds! As is was, even with my booties on with thicker socks I was still too cold in the wind to walk the one and a half mile paved path. So I took a few pictures and went back home to where it was nice and warm! Here are the picks I took: Oh I was going to show off this really cute blouse I bought at Target that I was wearing with the above, but sorry guys! I was not about to freeze to just snap you a photo! Maybe next time! Some Suggestions to Improve Your Heel Experience As I was warming back up at home, I thought about things that I do to improve my time walking in heels and thought that just maybe you'd benefit some what if I shared those things. So with that intro, let me just jump onto my heel training tips! Wear Your Heels Around the House That is what I do, just wear various heels that I have every day when I am home. That means when I sweep the floor with the vacuum cleaner (not a light one either), I do the dishes, or just hang around the house I am wearing heels. Why you may ask? It helps to train me to be able to walk on various surfaces while doing everyday tasks. You will learn very quickly how well you handle moving around wearing heels doing this. It develops an almost fluid walk since you are doing so much walking. I even wear my heels outside since we have a hard-packed gravel drive and level grassy areas. Now you may be saying, you can’t walk in grass or gravel. Well you certainly won’t be able to unless you practice doing it! That is why I walk outside. That way when I am wearing my heels out and about I will know how to handle uneven, shifting surfaces with grace and style. Another advantage to wearing heels at home is that you learn how to sit properly in heels (this is more important if you wear skirts, dresses or jeggings with a shirt dress). Many guys just plop down when they sit and need to practice sitting gracefully and mimic how a woman sits. It’s all about making your walk, your movement graceful and confident. Exercise for Wearing Heels I also make exercising my legs and feet a priority every day. The first item I recommend you get is a slant board (which I am showing here). The angle the incline should be is between 15 and 22 degrees. Mine is at 22 degrees as I have been using one for years. The photo illustrates the basic pieces that go into making your own slant board. If you need there are some good videos on YouTube showing how they are constructed. I use that to help stretch my calve muscles when standing in the morning after a warm shower. I also do calve lifts during the day when I have a few moments to knock out twenty at a time. Here is what they look like: I usually do mine on the steps leading into our house. But you could use any stable box shape to do the lifts. It will most definitely help stretch your leg muscles. And the final thing that I do is to get out and walk in my heels whether that is at the mall a park or where ever I can have a good walk. The idea is that I strengthen the muscles that I need walk in my heels comfortably. I think of it like this, you would not go out to run a marathon with only a few hours of training would you. Same with heels. If you want to walk in them comfortably and with few aches or pains you have got to exercise and practice in them. The more supple your muscles are, the easier it will be to walk with grace and poise in heels. Walk a Mile in Her Shoes Okay, just want to let everyone know that it is that time of year when the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes starts to have events all over the US and in Canada. This is a dear-to-my-heart charity. Their tag line is: Walk a Mile in Her Shoes® The International Men’s March to Stop Rape, Sexual Assault & Gender Violence The link to their website is: Walk a Mile in Her Shoes and I would suggest that you visit the site to see what they are all about. I have done this event numerous times in the past few years. It is a blast and the money goes to a good cause. Plus it is a great way to get out in your heels. They do have official heels but they will not care if you have your own heels. I bought a pair of heels with ankle straps that are at least red (the color of the official shoes). The shoes they offer are Le Dame Footwear. Hey maybe we could even organize to meet at certain events, something like a meet and greet as a bonus. But that is up to you guys. If you want to, I am in! Well that is all I have to say about that! I hope you enjoyed the blog, maybe learned something or just had fun reading it. If you did, spread it around! As always...keep strutting those heels!
  5. Heel Ramblings

    I just want to encourage every guy that loves heels to continue to grow in their confidence in wearing their heels. It is all about the journey, we may have hard times and sometimes we will have amazing times. But keep moving forward and surround yourself with people that will support you and encourage you. Like being on this site. If I can encourage you or help you, just give me a shout. Would love to one day meet you all, comparing heels, sharing stories and good times. Keep strutting those heels!
  6. Heel Ramblings

    Well here we are so very close to spring and I cannot wait! I have bought new sandals just for spring and I cannot wait to get to walk with them on down the road! I will post a few of my new sandals that I have bought recently. I do not know if it is just me getting older or what, but I have been getting a lot more bolder in wearing my heels and such out in public. Used to be I would wear my booties or heels with my jeans worn over them like many of us do here. Then when I hired a stylist to help me to wear women's clothing correctly and with style, I now wear my heels much like women do in that I wear my jeans tucked into my boots or the cuff of my jeans end at the top of the shoes. Not perfect yet, but I am working on my outfits. The question that rises to my mind is, "Why do we try to hide our heels from public view?" I mean don't we love our heels, think they look good on us, make us feel good? Then why aren't we more bold in wearing our heels? I know it can be intimidating to wear your heels for all to see, but how can we make progress and advocate men wearing heels if we don't show them off on our feet? As for me I am going to wear my heels loud and proud. And for those people that tell me I must be gay or less than a man to wear heels and women's clothing, I tell them this. I am not gay, I am still a guy. I am a freestyle fashion man and I wear what feels good on me, fits me and it does not matter if the clothes or shoes are made for a woman or a man. Besides, who said that this item of clothes is just for a man or a woman? The fashion police?! Some old clothing maker that would freak if a guy even thought of wearing heels. It's time to change it up, time to be free to wear what you want without judgment from others. You are wearing your clothing not anyone else; be who you are instead of being what society says you are. Well that's all for now. Just had to do a little venting. As always, keep strutting those heels!
  7. Heel Heigth Advise

    I agree with HappyinHeels in that you will have to do a lot a practicing walking in those heels before you will become comfortable. I would encourage you to do stretching exercises to both strengthen your leg and ankle muscles. You have GOT to be flexible to be comfortable. Also, bear in mind you have a natural heel height where you will be comfortable without having to go through developing your body to handle the extreme angles of higher heels. Like I am 5'10" and based on my height, my good heel height is between 4" and 5". Can't change that much unless I want to go through the time and effort to stretch my body to handle the added heel height. Good luck and keep strutting those heels!
  8. Welcome to the site! Hope to see your collection of shoes. I am sure that you are like a lot of us and have quite a number of fashionable heels to wear. If you ever have any questions, just give a shout!
  9. Hello everyone

    One, like to say welcome to the site. Two, think it is about time to trade in your well used heels for some new ones. Might I suggest taking a look at the Shoes of Prey site? At their site you can custom design your shoes be they classic pumps to sandals to suit your tastes and fit. Cost is around $ 130 to $ 160 per pair of shoes, but that is not too bad a price for custom heels! Again, welcome!
  10. Hola!

    Welcome! Glad you joined up. K2
  11. Which Gel Insert?

    I have used SOFSole Ball-of-Foot Cushion pad before. They worked well, provided good cushion but they were slippery as you mentioned in your post. I bought some ball-of-foot cushions from Shoe Show store which were made with cork (I believe) but they provided a non-slippery surface which is great to have when wearing higher heels as they keep my foot from sliding forward, especially in open-toe heels. They were not as expensive as gel heels but did both needs pretty well...cushion and a good surface. Also I have found the tape on gel inserts to be not as stable (sticky) as the cork insoles I use.
  12. Hello from Canada

    Well Danieala, I will ask something, What is your favorite style of heel and how high of a heel do you like to wear? We'll start with that and go from there!
  13. Hello all

    Well then I wish you a belated welcome to the site! I agree whole heartedly that men's shoes are so boring! Like you I love heels for heels sake. And there are so many styles, colors and heights that if I bought a new pair of heels every day I'd never run out of new selections! But I must remain sane and not go crazy on my shoe purchases though I do have quite a few pairs. In any case glad you are on here, if you ever have questions or such, just let me know. I do have a blog that you may want to check out, "Wearing-Heels - It's a Journey". Chow!
  14. Northern Indiana Meet

    Hey Cat, think you are the guy I need to work with to make this event happen. You've been around this site longer than me and may have some real good ideas on how this can be put together. Let me know. In my mind I would like to see it as maybe some shopping, seeing some sights, etc. Chat soon!
  15. Northern Indiana Meet

    Hey! If you live in southern Michigan, northern Indiana or even Chicago, looking to put together a meet for sometime in the summer. So if you are interested in doing that, let me know here and we can move forward from that. Chow!
