    Back in the mid 90s, there was a certain style of cowboy boot that had a pretty substantial heel on it, bordering on "not low," always in conjunction with a kiltie. You would see them around places where there was line dancing, mostly country bars, in other words. After a certain film released in 2005 decimated cowboy boot sales, that style of heel has not reappeared, even though the market has rebounded somewhat.

    Things come and go.  There are now entire businesses riding the Yellowstone wave:

  2. We were watching an episode of Quincy, M.E. yesterday, aired 1981, and I noticed that one of the truck drivers wore boots that I would wear.  The heels are tall heels by today's standards, and he's working in them too.

    Too bad, stiletto boots are great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    It's all good, I like to do a lot of walking in my shoes so stilettos probably aren't too practical for my lifestyle anyway.

    For the second part, it's funny how we assign certain clothes or shoes as being more radical or controversial than others, when this is probably not the case. People who are receptive to a guy in a skirt and heels are not really going to put the finery on it as to whether the guy is wearing stilettos or block heels. Same goes for people who find the idea repulsive or merely weird. They're really not going to notice the exact style of shoe or skirt. I do this all the time myself, don't get me wrong. I'm guilty of the same inner head game, but it's kind of silly.

    I have the opposite experience.  There are people like my wife who tolerate the 4" cuban heels on my cowboy boots but she would throw a fit if I wore stilettos, of any height.

  5. I like my boots tall, but sometimes it does depend on the outfit.  I'm just in my cowboy boots with 4" heels today.  This is not one of my wilder outfits, but when I walked into the hotel lounge one of the staff immediately gave me an approving smile.  Later when she was servicing the coffee machine she said to me "I don't want to overstep, but I love your outfit!"  It motivated me to step outside and snap a photo:
