    Enjoy traveling, sports, and the great outdoors. Also like general fashion. Usually wear bootcut jeans, with boots or pumps in winter and wedges or other heeled sandals in other months and have paired these with some other items such as blouses or jewelry. I do enjoy higher heels above 5" and have occasionally worn 6-7" heels to different social settings.

    Backpack or Messenger bag?

    JeffB, Not that you wear them anymore but I have noticed most of the cool women's jeans have tiny front pockets probably assuming the wearer will have a handbag. Once one carries a handbag it would be difficult to NOT be without one. One of the items I carry is an extra set of heels if I have a change of mood or I'm headed to a venue with a different vibe.

  3. Maybe he's a worldwide legging baron . You have to admit though leggings take up much less space than shoes. Maybe we all need a warehouse! I've got a pole barn so I'm set. HinH

    I certainly agree with you on all your points. HinH
  5. Well, I'm almost 58 years old and have shoulder-length hair and wear heels. If I did everything by everyone else's conventional rules I would be a miserable robot and not the unique individual I am today. Sure the ladies adopt what they want from the men's aisle and own it but somehow it doesn't seem to work the other way. That's only if you accept it. Liberation is a two-way street. A woman really does not care if I'm dress shopping or trying on heels. I've done it dozens of times and nothing remotely negative has ever happened. If it were ever to happen that person would be cordially invited to perform an anatomically impossible act. I don't care how many men's jeans or men's shirts women want to wear. If it makes them happy then fine. Best thing many of us can do is ignore the background noise and focus only on what is in front of us. Do your own thing because you have a finite amount of time to do it. HinH

    Who has bought some new shoes

    Today I went shoe shopping for the first time in a while. I wore a unisex sweater with a Covington rain jacket, bootcut jeans, and my Aldo chunky heel ankle boots with 5"/12cm heels to the Gurnee Mills Mall in northernmost Illinois. That's me at my car leaving. The second photo is what I bought; some cute tan wedge sandals with the rope that climbs the calf. Quick in and out as I do not waste time. The wedges were on the clearance rack so the total was less than $22 USD. HinH

    Reason for wearing heels??

    Parts of Beirut were heavily damaged from civil war and after the US Marines were blown up at the airport in late 1983. Well before that though Beirut was very a swank place which some called the Las Vegas of the Middle East. HinH

    HeeledSteve, There are some websites such as heels.com which offer a short 5-10 second video when you click on each selection. Watching the model's technique can certainly give you an idea. I started practicing this some years ago and it definitely helps. Imagine walking in one direction then pivoting and walking back to your starting point. You can do this in virtually any space where heels can be worn. I practiced this because nearly all of my heels are 5"/12cm or higher and have at least some platform. HinH

    Or affix a set of lights to the grill of your vehicle like some truckers do HinH

    Reason for wearing heels??

    I looked at this Shyheels list and have been all of these places except Antarctica. My father was there at times 1962-1965 when only military and scientists were allowed. He certainly is the travelled one. Probably the most unique places I have been was the Soviet Union in 1979 and Grise Fjord (74 degrees north) in the Canadian High Arctic a year earlier. Of course Beirut in 1983 was an unusual place as well. HinH

    Jeremy's heel stories, pictures & thoughts

    It's all about money my friend. Why make things in a country with high standards like the U.K., USA, Canada, Australia and many others when you can have it made in China where the environment is badly treated the way it always is in communist hellholes. China's air is so bad in its cities because the rest of the world helped make it so. We can talk about climate accords and the like but we really need to examine the way we do things and make better choices. One of those is to avoid products made under less than favourable conditions. Pay the extra money and try to buy goods manufactured under good working conditions. It helps the country you live in and it helps the environment. Buy local whenever possible, recycle everything humanly possible, and try to make the world a better place by your simple acts and not with just words. One need not be an Al Gore or other such noted celebrities talking a good game rather a solid citizen walking the walk. HappyinHeels

    Reason for wearing heels??

    There certainly are situations where heels would be a no go. Industrial buildings, warehouses, hospitals, restaurants, as well as working in law enforcement or virtually any of the trades where there's a likelihood of being on a building site. I love all of my heels but I also love my steel toe boots. You can add chopping and stacking firewood to the list of situations where a steel toe boot is preferable. HinH

    D.I.Y. (in heels of course)

    p1ng74, See, you ask a question here and get the best free electrical advice on the planet. As at9 says if you're plugging into a GFI or GCFI outlet then the outlet sorts out the issues and will shut off the current flowing from it at the first hint of trouble. Hotter bulbs in unpolarised connectors led to many more fires back in the 1970's and before. Outdoor outlets are supposed to be GFI as well as those in bathrooms, kitchens, and anywhere else within 6-8 feet of a water source. While not required it is preferable to have GFI outlets in basements owing to higher humidity. Now go out and get that new light string. HinH

    Excursions Of HeeledSteve

    HeeledSteve, My guess you slipped on some coffee drippings as you were leaving. I have never fallen in heels but I rarely fall at all in any situation. Apparently my legs are shorter than they should be proportionate to my body above the waist. Owing to a centre of gravity about 12 cm nearer the ground I believe is a major factor. Other factors I believe are having learned to ice skate at a very young age, climbing trees as a youngster (okay, I can still do that) and a constant awareness of my surroundings. Since I wear heels a lot I'm all the more aware of my steps and the type of pavements or ground I'm walking on. When I look back in time it does not surprise me the two positions I played fairly well were goalie in hockey and catcher in baseball and softball. Maybe I was training to walk later in heels without knowing it. HappyinHeels
