  1. Sounds like someone else had a Materials class...
  2. I do agree that we’ll made shoes, those that use better materials, etc, will seem more solid. But as an engineer, I don’t believe there is any metal known to man that is the size of a stilleto that will not flex a little under a load. And I doubt shoe companies use titanium in their heels...
  3. I have experienced what PleaserFan is describing. At 180lbs, the heels I was wearing did this and how noticeable it was determined by how fast I walked so that the heel was put under tension in that it was slightly closer to the front of the shoe until Intook my weight of. It may that some are better at heel toe in which the heel tip doesn’t flex. I’m not sure if it is the heel that actually bends, or the heel “rotates” toward the front of the shoe at the point the heel connects to the shoe body. The particular heels I’m referring to still look solid in the heel, but they do seem to flex. I’m not sure how many stilleto shoes are designed to be really strong/rigid under a man’s weight(assuming 180 lbs+). I assume shoes are made to support a certain amount of weight, but there has to be a max, otherwise they would be outrageously expensive.
  4. I believe it is due to how you put your foot down, at least in terms of heel first when walking. As you put more of your weight on the shoe, and prior to the front part of the shoe taking any of the weight, the heel is bending a bit toward the front of the shoe. Assuming the heel is out in front of with the heel at an angle to the ground as you put weight on it. As you have all your weight on both front and heel, the heel remains slightly flexed. As you walk forward, as weight is removed from the heel, and the point friction/weight is less than the flex/spring force, the bottom of the heel slides back along the floor to relieve the tension. How much you hear depends on how fast you walk/take weight off the heal relative to the time the flex tension is working again the friction of rubbing against the ground. This doesn’t happen with a wedge... Or at least in my opinion....

    $1B??? I’m not a fan of Private Equity firms. They are the ones that probably loaded NW up with the loans in the first place and leaves them in horrendous shape with no room to maneuver in a downturn...

    Well, it’s a start……

    I was out on another short business trip last week. A quick in and out with a lot of work with the customer. But I found some time to put my heels on and go take a walk. I posted the pictures of these boots way back on August 10, 2016 in this thread. Man, time is flying... The first night, I just went out to a restaurant near the hotel and then to the local Barnes and Noble. I had work to do back at the hotel for the next day. After that meeting, I drove back to Orlando to stay in a hotel near the airport. I was wondering where to eat, I check the restaurants at Downtown Disney. Or Disney Spring now or something. I check online and saw I could get a reservation. I sort of just dived in and left the hotel where the those boots again, leaving any other shoes in the hotel. Started getting the butterflies when I arrived because the place was packed. They have huge parking garages now and the first one was already full. Drove to the next one, farther away from the restaurant. Got out of the car, joined the crowds and headed to the restaurant. I probably stood out, but not for the heels. I’m wearing boot cut Levi’s, and most people were in shorts. At the restaurant, I was seated out in the middle of the restaurant near a busy walk way, everyone able to see my boots. Sitting down, my jeans rose up way above the heel. Maybe it was just me, but I was getting the idea a bunch of the workers were walking near the table and looking down. I was OK with it, had a great conversation with the waiter. Not about the shoes... Afterwards walked around Downtown Disney. Among litterly thousands and thousands of people. A few hours of walking. It felt great.

    Why do you love to wear High Heels?

    The original thought behind the question way back when was for me to come up with a good description that my wife can understand and accept. Putting better words in my mouth as it is. ;) I’ve had many discussions since then about this topic with my wife, and I’ve come to one conclusion. No matter how many ways I can describe why I love to wear high heels, there is no way for her to really understand it. I think of it like this now. I love cars as well, all kinds, especially the ones I have gotten to drive, whether they are mine or not. I’ll call out rare ones on the road and point them out to my son. My wife does not understand that as well. It just does not make sense to her. Hasn't for the last 20 years. For her, or anyone else with no love for heels, it is like a leap of faith to just come to an understanding and accept that I love to wear heels. When that happens, I have no clue.

    Why do you love to wear High Heels?

    She is my Life Partner. Making her good with the situation is just as important... I've been thinking on this while reading the posts. That I'm looking at it as really 2 questions, 1-Why do I love High Heels, 2-Why do I want to wear High Heels. I believe the second is easier to explain to someone else. The first I'm thinking not so much if they do not have the same feeling already. For example, I love cars, I've owned many over the years. My wife just can't see a car that way no matter how much I describe why I love cars. This being the first case. She likes shoes a little, but not enough to purchase more than she needs for day to day. I can browse and want to purchase every one that I find interesting. I love HHs more than she, plus toss in why would a man like them.., Now the 2nd case, why wearing them, possible to convey I believe. 2 weeks ago we were up at the state fair where GM had a driving experience set up. We both got to test drive the new Corvette. For me, the thrill of actually driving, experiencing something I love was a huge thrill. For my wife, cool, but not the level of thrill I had. But she understands why I wanted to drive the car even if she can't see what the big deal is over something with 4 wheels. The same with high heels, just looking is not as great as the experience. I love high heels, the reasons don't necessarily have to make sense that I do. It was not a logical choice that I decided I will like this because of A or B. I was just really into them. So if that is the case, should the fact I am male discourage me? Why? Woaa, how do I change text size on a phone??? Sorry...
  9. Why do you wear high heels? I’m trying to find better words for why I love to wear high heels. My wife has known about this for years, but has never been comfortable with the idea. I’m wondering if my reasons can be better. Or, is there a better way/better words of/for describing why I want to wear high heels. I put it here in the everyone branch because I think everyone’s opinion is relevant. First, I have a thing for high heels, fetish, attraction, thrill, (lack of better words at the moment) for seeing them, and the experience of wearing them makes it first person vs just seeing with no actual feeling. The desire to wear is not a sexual turn on in itself. Having said that, seeing my wife wear a pair of high heels, the idea of my wife and I wearing the same pair of heels (only imagined up to now ), or her telling me to put on a pair of my heels for an intimate evening alone together (a few times, but love it a lot more…) definitely is a turn on. But my just wanting to put a pair of heels on and walk around is not. The reason for the desire to just walk around is the one harder to get the reasoning across. The fact or experiencing the action of walking in high heels is a definite thrill. More akin to listening to your favorite music live. The live experience creating the thrill. I feel great, I’m doing something that I love to do. I do not want to write too much now. I’d like to hear more other descriptions to see if what you feel may be a better way of describing how I feel. Also for me, I’m not trying to reach my feminine side, or at least no higher than my ankles. I like high heeled boots mainly, but also wedge sandals, mainly for the simple fact that a lot of times it is just too hot for boots. So no other interest in cross dressing, or being gay, I’m straight. But I have no issue for whatever anyone else wants to be. I know there have been other threads. But I think it is good to rehash a topic every occasionally, with the new people that are on any given time. PS, for another topic, but I recently went back in the Men’s branch, started from the beginning and slowly read thought most of the threads. It was a great read, if a long-term project. There were a few similar threads over the years.

    Well, it’s a start……

    You can see two other booties I still take with me on trips on the #3 "tab" of this topic. Can't take them all, I need some regular shoes for work. Yea, I'm not into the feminine look. Just the heels. I have a few sandals, mostly wedge, but I have not worn them out heeling. No pumps. When I'm out, I still like wearing Levis and I believe the booties look best.

    Well, it’s a start……

    I don't know if slow and steady is the intended approach. My kids do not know, and with them home for the summer limits opportunities. Most of my heeling takes place when I am out of town for work. Which comes and goes. Lately, when I do go, it is LA, Denver, and Melbourne, FL. And the trips have been short, with not that much time for heeling, which is one of the reasons I expanded it to the travel part. if I ever know I'll have time, I shoot you a message to see what's possible.

    I don't have any current pictures. But you can google either to see what they look like.

    I agree, I was never really concerned with the Security Staff. They have been looking into my bags for years seeing a bunch of heels. Walking among other people, and sitting down with a stranger for a few hours adds another dimension to being out and about.

    Well, it’s a start……

    I wanted to stretch myself a bit further, put myself in public areas with no chance of backing out. But OK, not with really tall heels, wearing my Clarks Gelata Fresca Boot. Only a 2 inch heel, but still a woman’s boot. I had to travel for work this week, both directions with one stop to change planes. Outbound trip, I wore the boots from home, with customer facing work cloths, kakis and company shirt. The kakis pretty much covering the heel. Parked in the offsite parking, jumped on the bus with just a few other people, the heels in plain sight. Checked my baggage. This is one part of why I wanted to do this, after checking my baggage, with other shoes, work and sneakers, this was my point of no return, no chance of backing out for the next 6 hours, which turned into 9… And went through the security where I had my only real hiccup. I have Pre-check, did not take off the boots, and they do not go through the metal detector without going off. Tried it twice, removing belt first, then sheepishly, more for having to do it than anyone seeing me taking womans boots off and putting them on the conveyer. But the rest of the trip was amazingly great. Walking in the boots everywhere I had to go. Having aisle seats in which anyone could look down and see them. Not a problem. On the trip back the next day, I was second guessing if I wanted to wear them again. I actually ended up wearing them the whole day and was wondering if my feet were going to be sore. But on the way to the airport, I couldn’t not wear them for the thrill. This time I was wearing a pair of jeans, which had a smaller diameter leg, and the jeans sat all the way up above the heel. It didn’t really bother me. It just added to the pushing the limits in that everyone could see. Checked my bag again wiping out any chance of changing my shoes for the next 6 hours. (Thanks God it still ended up being 6 hours.) This time I took them off before going through the metal detector, standing out as the only Pre-Check person removing their shoes. I had to go through Chicago on the way back, my connection in far different terminals. It was a good 15 minute walk. Felt great as I was literally walking among thousands of other travelers in the terminal. Man, it’s been a while since I have been to O’Hare, but it is literally crazy busy with thousands and probably multiple thousands of people walking, standing, sitting around you. And I just having fun walking among them. I have another trip in a few weeks. I’m thinking of wearing my Clarks Mission Alfa booties which have a 3 in heel which will stand out even more. I am looking forward to it.

    Sorry, Melbourne, FL. While I would jump at the chance, my company will not be sending me to Australia any time soon. But I have heard great things from friends that live there.
