  1. That ad is just a sample, it's not the exact shoe I bought. The one I bought is size 10, women's. Fits perfectly.
  2. This broke my brain. Rings completely true... For whatever reason, I'm overwhelmed by the responses in this thread, and need a bit of time to reflect... Thanks.
  3. I don't have a story here, but your story is awesome!
  4. haha, noticed my wording, "these guys" for a pair of 5" heels ... :)
  5. https://www.tradesy.com/i/boutique-9-black-btstrut-leather-bootsbooties-size-us-8-regular-m-b/22036267/ Second-hand store, $15. Those straps are really nice, except the lowest one, which goes around the heel, that I really didn't like, but nothing a small pair of scissors didn't fix. Now it only has 4 straps, the entire heels show, and the shoes are amazing & comfy.
  6. I have my small backpack over my shoulder. It's also my comfort-item when heeling...
  7. Use the captions (CC button on YouTube), and have them auto-translate to English (gear icon next to CC).
  8. I've been thinking about this a lot recently. Traditionally, I mean over the past decades I've been (trying to?) wear heels, I've tended to go to parks, or out at night. Parks: I feel like a deviant wearing heels in a completely out of context place. No one (your average woman) would wear heels to a park, unless perhaps block heels only a couple of inches high. Night: Granted this is a lot of fun, but still often feel like I'm out of place, or doing something bad. Coffee shops: I've found some bad places where I feel completely uncomfortable (near industrial parks, with a lot of trucks and their drivers) while I've also found places where I feel much more comfortable (suburban areas). Outside during day-time: Infrequently able to do this, but with the right footwear and cloths, I'm comfortable. However, I am barely seeing heels being worn by anyone. "Downtown" is far away. Malls would be good, maybe I'll try that. Do you guys have any suggestions where heels would be more seen, where your average heel wearer (man/woman) wouldn't stick out as much? Just trying to find places where I can wear heels where I wouldn't feel like a deviant, although I understand that feeling is coming from within, not without.
  9. It's been a while... August was busy, both in terms of "life" and "heeling". Found time to go to the movies once, in 4" block heels, dark jeans, it wasn't busy so noone cared. I was loving it. Have also bought some nice shoes along the way. Recently bought a nice pair of boots, 4" heel, but 1" soles which are a bit thick. Aside from the heels, they could pass for guys shoes. Of all places, Walmart, as I accidentally saw them. Very comfortable, barely can feel the lift, and they almost feel like regular guys shoes. I got so excited about the boots that I went to a coffee shop to do my work wearing them. The outfit I think worked beautifully: loose hanging dress shirt, white t-shirt, light coloured jeans, and light-brown boots. Walking I doubt the heels were noticeable, but when sitting I'm sure the entire thing showed. I was a bit nervous but my goal right now is to find a comfortable pair of heeled boots that I can easily walk in, and try to wear it outside as much as possible. I'm sure people notice that they're heels. My goal is to get used to being outside wearing heels, but not worrying about feeling physically uncomfortable, or tripping someplace, or walking weird, etc. Once I'm comfortable being out and about, then I'll experiment, wear higher heels, or stilettos.
  10. Had some luck again yesterday. Bought these guys for $15, a few signs of wear, but nothing big. Fit awesome, very comfortable. https://www.tradesy.com/i/boutique-9-black-btstrut-leather-bootsbooties-size-us-8-regular-m-b/22036267/
  11. Haha, thanks! I doubt I'll be strutting anytime soon (it's not one of my goals), but definitely have more to go, and your support helps a LOT. OUTING: After my previous outings above, had another chance a few days later. Wore my usual jeans and my current favourite black 4" chunky boots, with about 1" showing. They are very very comfortable. Decided to walk to a nearby store to buy some essentials, about 2km away. It was early evening, with people going home. Went along the sidewalk with cars and other people passing by, crossed the streets in front of cars, went into the store, shopped for half an hour, checked out, walked home. Probably 2hours total. The first few steps were the hardest. Once I got going, I was happy. A few people probably looked, but could have been my imagination. Felt very liberating, being able to do my own thing. Probably my longest trip so far, in daylight, in a public place. I'm proud of myself. The sky didn't fall...
  12. Speechless... Amazing collection!
  13. Haha, so true. Same experience. A lot of these are probably "they look cool, must buy" and they never wear them. Most of the shoes I like, and I've bought there, have been almost-completely-new.
  14. Can't vote, as the answers don't make sense. I wear jeans over boots, as I like the look, and don't have the confidence the do the reverse.
  15. Updates. Travel has interfered with the daily routine, but has created some interesting opportunities for heeling. A few outings, as usual, in one of my long jeans to hide some of the heel. In one outing during my trip, I got dressed in my jeans, with a maroon top, and almost-identical-maroon ankle boots. The boots have I think a 4" chunky heel, and laces. The jeans covered all but about 1" of the heels, and I think it looked quite good overall. Went out, it was early evening, and walked around town for about an hour. I was quite nervous back home, but once I stepped outside, the nervousness and caring how much the shoes show, disappeared. I was quite self-conscious, but had quite a lot of fun walking around. I knew the heels were visible a bit, and I did notice (or imagine?) a few people looking more than they should have, but it was fun. On my way home I stopped by a grocery store to buy food. No one seemed to care, no one commented during the entire trip. On another outing, I decided to be a bit more brave. Black chunky heeled 4" boots, blue jeans, dark blue top, think it looked OK. Anyway, decided to visit a nearby city, so bought tickets, and got on the train. While sitting I'm sure the heels were visible, and I think a neighbour did spend a bit too much time looking, but could have been my imagination. Got off the train, walked around the city for a bit (it was full of people), and went to a park to sit and read for an hour. I wasn't advertising the heels, but at the same time felt quite comfortable in them. After my reading, and eating (at McDonalds, where an old lady stared a bit longer than expected), I decided to get back on the train and go home. It was quite a bit of fun! A year ago, I was walking around in the dark outside when heeling... Nerves are still there, but "they're just shoes"!
