    Boot "season"?

    In the northern hemisphere people are starting to talk about "boot season" as temperatures are dropping towards autumn and winter. I am curious how this affects choices of footwear in the high heel community, if at all. I personally cannot relate to "boot season" because I wear boots all year. Some people thought I was crazy for wearing 16" shafts while standing out in 100 degrees F under the sun, but I still find leather boots way more comfortable than plastic sneakers and I will not run around a field in open toe shoes. I enjoy the lift of my 2 1/4" riding heels, which is how I became interested in high heels. It a fashion no-no to wear tall boots in the summer? Or does it just come down to being too hot? Surely ankle boots are all season? Women seem to wear cowboy boots all year, and pair them with shorts or skirts. I suppose for those in colder climates where it gets wet and snowy, boots will keep your feet warm and dry compared to pumps. Do boots offer more ankle support for walking in high heels?

    Boot "season"?

    I have been traveling full time since 2010 and I still enjoy the pampering at a hotel. I agree with @Shyheels traveling and being away from home helps me appreciate what I have at home more. Though hotels also do a good job of delivering pleasant stays, so it works the other direction as well. When I am at home I look forward to my next trip and hotel stay, and during the trip I look forward to going home. It’s like any other cycle in life, really, and not one that most people get to experience so I feel fortunate. The same goes with meals. My wife’s cooking has an appealing style that cannot be purchased at restaurants. This drives up the level of standard by which I pursue meal experiences while I am traveling. When I eat out I try to learn new taste sensations that I bring into meals that I make at home, so it’s like the cycle of growth again. I take all the indoor pictures of outfits from the hotel mostly because the lighting is much better, and yes it is something fun to add to the day especially when work at the office is boring.

    4” heels all day today as usual, but I dressed down a little before heading down to the bar:

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

    Exactly, I have dealt with this my whole life. Being Chinese here most people assume I am good at math and know karate. Most of the assumptions are true, while others are aspirational to various degrees...

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

    When I was in high school, merely not having a girlfriend at any given moment was enough reason for guys to assume you are gay. That shallow view of masculinity needs to be left behind. I encourage any straight man who still makes daily decisions based on whether it makes they seem “gay” to quit being afraid and man up. There are now entire professions (musicians, artists, nurses, teachers, clergy, etc) no longer staffed by men because of flawed views of masculinity. I have two teenage sons and I hope they see too that I do what I think is good, rather than fear what other people might assume. Of all the reasons one might give me to not wear heels, the fear of being labeled gay will be the last one to make an impact on me.

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

    When I search “men high heels” in YouTube there is a mixture. Yes, gay might be over represented but it is not a lost cause. What I think there is opportunity for is showing true normalized heel wearing - not this click bait “I tried X for 24 hours” thing that might be entertaining but not all that inspiring. I’d be willing to put together something myself given a sufficiently clever idea but maybe YT is not the right place for it. Perhaps just doing what we are doing, wearing our heels day in and out for others to see in the real world, is the best approach.

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

    Came across this new video today where a couple young guys tried going out in high heels for the first time: Though the video was created with clickbait intentions, it actually supports the reality that it is perfectly fine for guys to wear heels. It looks like they had fun, and nobody said anything negative or tried to stop them. While my activities out and about are a bit tamer and don’t involve staging YouTube worthy scenes, this conclusion is consistent with my personal experience wearing heels for over a month now. As with their other videos, the Coyles’ present themselves in a way to show that they are gay, but I actually appreciated the fact that they did not make mention of it in a way that implied that the freedom to wear heels should be limited to or associated with being gay.

    The High Heeled Ruminations Of Melrose Plant

    To be fair, the lady doing the telling had been a medical professional all her life and had the best of intentions. But I’ll be one of those people too who will also do things I’m not “supposed to do” if I ever get to be 70.

    The High Heeled Ruminations Of Melrose Plant

    I’ve slipped and tripped on things when I was 30 years old wearing 2” heels. It just happens at any age. If anything, heels probably contribute to better fitness and longevity. The only person at church who wears 4” heels is a lady in her 70s who is not slowing down any time soon. I’ve heard other ladies scold her saying “you should not be wearing those shoes!” I’ve only just recently started doing 4” and I feel younger these days...
