  1. Had not given much thought to that illustration of a woman sporting a mustache which like you said would cause some shocked and puzzled expressions from strangers. Thinking along those lines I can see why a spouse or girlfriend would be a bit put off by her man wearing high heels. But I do believe that the perception that a man wearing high heels is odd or weird or somehow wrong is starting to erode. I know in my own neck of the world, people that see me every day, have come to accept me, at least, wearing heels. It is just like the LGBT lifestyle just a few years ago was looked at as something weird or odd. Now days it is pretty well accepted in society. It will just take men and women to step up and be proud of a guy wearing heels. As more guys come out of the proverbial closet and wear their heels in public the tide of public opinion will slowly change. So lets strut those heels and be proud we rock in them! Ciao!
  2. Sounds like you have been burned when giving a woman a compliment. I've had my share that just give me that, "Okay, now leave me alone" look. But most times they respond well to what I say. Maybe I come off as less threatening than you do. I have a tendency to be friendly and warm when I am out in public. I smile, say hello to strangers. I am at ease speaking to a woman and I have no ulterior motive than to brighten their day with my compliment. We all appreciate a kind word. So I will still encourage people in general to be encouraging to people you meet, maybe say, "Love your Shoes!" Can't hurt, but it could just brighten up somebody's day. Ciao!
  3. I've been in the same situation countless times. Whether I am wearing my heels at the time or not. I've always taken the opportunity to compliment her shoes and to engage in conversation. When I am wearing heels (which is about always) I still give a compliment which many times turns into a conversation about shoes, heels and wearing them. I've have not had to many women rebuff me for a compliment given. I think the majority of women appreciate someone noticing their style and giving them a thumbs up on it. I know I appreciate it when a guy or woman gives me a compliment on my heels. Kinda of makes your day that someone noticed. So don't hesitate to give a woman a compliment on her shoes. I am sure she will smile and be flattered. Ciao I am taller!
  4. I agree with that. I've had some guys ask me if I am gay, especially in the workplace. I always tell that that wearing heels does not make a guy gay. I go one to explain that for me, wearing heels makes me feel better, makes me more confident and I just like the way they look on me. For me, it is a process of talking with others when I have the chance. I am big on promoting men wearing heels. I might have come late to wearing heels, but now that I have I firmly believe that there should be no dispersion cast on a man for wearing heels. It is their choice. Oh, on the "Just because a person wears clothing sold as women's doesn't mean you have to look like woman. Some women's version work better than men's." I totally agree with you. I have bought and worn women's blouses, tops, etc. in the past when I felt they made the outfit. Would like to do more in that way. I believe they call it fashion-freestyle. Ciao!
  5. I think that any guy who wears heels should invest in a heel repair kit. I did. I have a wide assortment of heel tips that I can use to repair my heels. Far cheaper than going to have it done by someone else. When I replace my heel tips I make sure to carefully remove the damaged or worn tip. I then make sure that the end of the heel is flat before installing a new tip. I select a tip that fits well into the hole and the tip is about the correct size and shape for the heel. Once I have the tip fully seated in the heel. I take my Dremel tool and carefully shape the tip to match the contour of the heel. Once that is close I use a buffing heel to make it perfect. If needed, once that is all done I will color polish to match the color of the tip to the heel color. Now I may be more anal about this than some, but I want the heel repair to look perfect. Ciao!
  6. Reading this thread has been somewhat of an eye opener for me. Maybe I was blind but I thought that many of the men on here wore heels daily like I do. My heart goes out to you guys that have to snatch whatever time you can find to wear your heels. It should not be that way. As for my situation, my girlfriend is okay with me wearing heels and will even go out in public with me if we are out of this area where people she knows or church people would see us. She is concerned about having people she knows around here gossiping about me wearing heels. Still it is better than what I have read in this thread. I also wear my heels all day, everyday such as to work, to shop, etc. Now I do not wear bold heels or extreme heels. My heels are pretty conservative in color and design. My heels usually range from 4" to 5" heels with some having platforms. I do not wear women's clothing, though I do have some women's skinny jeans as they fit me a bit better than men's skinny jeans and go better with boots. I do not know why spouses or girlfriends are so resistant to their man wearing heels? As long as there man can carry himself well in heels, can match his heels to his clothes, he should be okay. Maybe they are threatened by a guy being able to wear heels. I would not think my girlfriend has that issue as she can strut in some seriously high heels! Maybe it is their not wanting to have people gossiping about their man wearing heels. Look at it like this, we don't get upset when our better half wears a man's shirt, jeans, etc. Seems like a double standard here. Good luck to those of us that have to wear our heels when the time presents itself. Maybe with the passage of time, more and more of society will accept and embrace men wearing heels out in public. We can at least dream... Ciao!
  7. Great survey! Would like to see the results. As others have said, I do not plan to stop wearing heels just because I am over 60. Heels complete my look and style. In fact I do not walk on flats much anymore unless I am doing something or going somewhere that heels just would not work, like the beach, hiking in the woods, etc. Ciao!
  8. I think that would take a group of us that are interested in this idea to conduct research what the specifics would be for such an event. It would take a good deal of planning and discussion to flesh out what the event should entail, where, how to fund such an event, etc. I would not think that I would plan for a large event. Start out with a smaller event and as we gain experience we could grow the size. One idea I had is that we might have a live feed that would be able to have multiple online feeds covering, visits to shoe designers, guest speakers, interviews with members, etc. Might be able to do it that way for a couple years to put us out there on social media for the world to see us. I think this is the time we as a group should be looking for ways to showcase men in heels. From the things that I have seen in the media stream lately. Men wearing heels is becoming much more accepted. Love to hear your ideas, thoughts, opinions. Ciao!
  9. I hope that I am not the only person on here that envisions a day when we can have a national convention for this organization (site). I think that would be a great way to promote the organization, showcase what we are about and gain greater visibility. We might even be able to garner some attention from companies that produce heels, helping them to see that there is a viable market out there for heels for men. Plus I think it would be a blast to see such a gathering of men and women wearing heels and those that support this fashion trend. Let me know what you think about something like this. I'd like to see what others think about it. I certainly hope that I am not the only one to have this dream! Ciao!
  10. Here is an great article from www.heelstoday.com about men wearing heels. SHOULD MEN WEAR HIGH HEELS? September 20, 2019 • High heels for men • High heels size 13 and up Men In Heels The concept of having men wear heels sounds very strange for a lot of people. And that’s because we are expecting the obvious. Women are known to be the ones to wear heels, so when a man does that it’s very strange and quite a bit uncomfortable. Which is exactly why it’s important to know what men think about it. Debate.org has created a poll where they asked the audience to see whether men should actually be wearing any type of heels or not. And it turns out that 35% of the men voted No, but 65% of them voted yes. What men think about wearing heels Obviously, most men that agreed to the idea of wearing heels stated that they should wear heels in private. Which is a very important aspect to keep in mind here. Men still want to impress their ladies and even do some role play. But that won’t really leave the comfort and safety of their home. Those that are against men wearing heels go with the idea that this is not something masculine at all. It sounds and looks interesting, but it’s also a tad problematic as you don’t know what to expect with all this kind of stuff. The primary focus when you wear high heels is to feel comfortable and to constantly try to push the boundaries yourself. But doing that is not that simple for some men, so it can be rather daunting and demanding at the same time. The problem with all of this is that men are expected to wear particular things and they are imposed these shoe types. Which is not fair. Wearing what you like Men and people, in general, should be able to wear whatever they want without having to deal with any restriction. That really goes to show how important it is to focus on growth and value, and the quality itself can be very interesting and powerful at the same time here, which is exactly a crucial aspect. We always wanted men to be more serious and to wear only shoes. But times have changed, we are in modern times and it’s important to allow men to wear whatever they want. That’s a crucial thing, to open up a great range of new ideas as we bring in more support and outstanding options to the table. That’s definitely a tricky aspect, but with the right approach, nothing can stand in your way. So, should men wear heels? That’s up to every man and what he wants to do. No one should impose a person what to wear and how to do that. If a man wants to wear heels and if he feels better doing that, then that’s all you need to know. Of course, there are demanding situations along the way, but the results themselves are among some of the best. It’s just a great opportunity and the options themselves are among some of the best every time without any hassle. We encourage you to wear high heels even if you’re a man, as you get to showcase your ideas and notions without rushing or imposing this idea to anyone. I liked this article it is well written and echos closely how I feel about wearing heels. It is each man's choice as to what clothes he wear or shoes he choices to wear. While it is somewhat sad that a lot of the 65% that said they should wearing heels, yet they feel pressured by society to only wear them indoors. Hey I know what it feels like wanting to wear my heels in public and taking that first huge step out the door in heels. But I know from experience that the fears you have about walking in heels in public are not as bad as your mind makes them. You just have to make up your mind that you like wearing heels, they make you feel good, look good and just take that first step. Like the poem says in "Lord of the Rings": So then in 2020, if you have not yet taken that step down from the door and out in public in your heels, let this be the year that you start this new adventure! Good luck, and like I say, "Keep strutting those heels! Ciao!
  11. The ones I have are size 11 US.
  12. I just received my shoes and looking at them, they look sweet. Now I can walk in 5" heels with no problem. But these make me feel a little unstable. Granted these have 6" heels with the platform. Still the only time I feel unstable is when the shoes are off somehow. If I look from the rear of the shoe towards the front I can see a definite 10 degree angle from vertical on the heel (bottom is about 7-10mm to the right of center line). Now looking from the side of the shoe the heel center line appears to match the center line of my heel, which is ok and is like it should be. The cushioned insole is just about adequate. Given the design flaw in the heel, I do not think this shoe will be stable enough to walk in for any length of time. And that is not good in my book. I tend to wear my heels for distance, not just taking a walk in the house. I cannot accept a poor design as it affect my body, my walk and how I look in public. So this is a lesson learned. I won't be buying their shoes again unless, like was said by Jkrenzer said: I won't be buying a pair of heels from them unless I can see them, touch them, wear them before I buy them!
  13. Well it has been quite some time since I created a new blog entry, got busy with other things in my life that kept me away from writing. Hopefully now things are more sane and I will be more consistent in my writings. With that said, let me get on with this entry! Perusing the forums I see that there is a wide range on how we wear our heels. Some wear them indoors, some out in public and some vary between those. So that set me to thinking about how I wear my heels. For me, I wear my heels every day whether I go to work, shopping or out on the town. I feel very comfortable in my heels and I feel they make me feel more confident and proud. My heels complete my outfits (I wear mostly men's clothing adding in skinny jeans or jeggings when they fit the outfit). In terms of what I wear in heels, that can range from 4 to 5 inch stiletto heels to a block heel on booties for winter. I prefer closed toe shoes over open toe as the open toe's sometimes gives me grief to my toes. I have to be very careful when I buy sandals or open toe pumps making sure that my fit is dang near perfect! Since I participate a lot in the Walk a Mile in Her Shoes events, I have to be conditioned to walk the one mile course. When I first started to support that non-profit, I was beat by the time I walked across the finish line! It took some time to get in shape to master that distance. Now days if I have to walk a lot, I make sure to wear my most comfortable heels. So my advise to guys or women is this. If you are going to walk a lot in your heels, know your limits! There is nothing worse than seeing a man or woman laboring to walk in their heels because they have not taken the time to strengthen their leg and ankle muscles or have done stretching to make their bodies more flexible. Don't get all misty eyed at those alluring 6"+ heels and rush out and buy them and then expect to be able to walk confidently and/or comfortably right out of the box. Won't happen. You'll just do what I did, hurting my foot when my one foot twisted as I fell wearing a pair of 7" stiletto heels! Did not look glamorous or confident when that happened but it did teach me a valuable lesson. So here is what I would like you, the reader that is looking at this post, share how you wear your heels. I'd like to hear about other guys that wear heels and how they perceive how heels has bettered their life or added to their life. Thanks for listening and as always, keep strutting those heels! Ciao!
  14. I have used women's pantyhose for the longest. Never really had a problem wearing them after I dialed in what size I needed. I will check out activskin.com. Always looking for new and better hose. Ciao!
  15. Thanks for the review. I have ordered the heels so I will post when I get them. Ciao!
