    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.

  1. Mackyheels, I read all of this exhausting account and have concluded you have spent entirely too much time watching reactions of various people to the point it is eroding your unique form of fashion creativity. You did not enter into your particular style so it can be approved or disapproved by random people most of whom you will never see again. It is not a Canadian thing either. As the son of a Quebec-raised father I know Canada to be one of the most thoughtful and respected nations on Earth. I know this empirically in Canada as well as having travelled to 29 countries so far. I'll repeat here what I've said before. Your money is just as legal and welcome to the retail outlet as those with narrow minds, filthy mouths, and those content to live a checkbox life. Your confidence must be the force which rises above all such bogeymen, or women, who would hurl insults your way. You can follow Bubba136 and relegate all this to oblivion as you take the stance none of it matters. You could follow Cali who says you should "kill them with kindness". You could follow my advice by understanding to your core that you should live your life by your terms and make the world meet you on those terms. The confidence you exude each day will tell the world you are resolute and undeterred. HappyinHeels

    Wearing High Heels in Las Vegas !!!

    JeffB, When the freestyle prince of Philadelphia lands in Las Vegas the city should be prepared to be awed. My wife and I stayed the night there in 2016 on our way to Mexicali and we just rolled through there on 30th April. It is a great place to wear what you want, watch other people, and be seen in general. You can find naughty clothes and shoes and attend top-quality entertainment wearing towering heels. LV is there to entertain people and separate you from your money. I don't gamble. If I did I would not have been able to retire four weeks ago at just 57. You can, however, enjoy being dressed and do other things like see the original downtown area, go shopping, or attend different shows around town. Hotel prices will drop in both LV and Phoenix as temperatures regularly surpass 100F/38C and even 110F/43C this summer. HappyinHeels

    Wild about Wedges

    Okay, your reply reminds of something I said once about night venues so all is good. HinH

    Wild about Wedges

    Cali, Now why didn't you wear those to the ballpark?? I love that style. Imagine that wedge with a skinny jean. HinH

    Heeling in Montreal

    Heeladdict, Montreal is as apt to diverse fashion as NYC with the flavor of France set in a rigorous 4-season climate. My dad was raised in Quebec so I go to and through Montreal with some frequency. Wear what you want and check out club scene on either Rue St-Catherine or St-Denis. Just be ready for the Montreal pause, when the person in front of you waits for either French or English. HinH

    Have you been noticed

    spikesmike, Without context I doubt any of us know who Terry Avery is. This photo appears to have been taken in the basement of your home so seeing the photo later turn up on social media makes me wonder about the intentions of those you are letting in. I would be angry if I had discovered this under these circumstances if I'm reading it right. If you're in public then all bets are off. Nice heels though! HappyinHeels

    Boot cut or not

    RonC, You might consider getting a shoe stretcher like I did at target some years ago. It will not stretch an entire size rather it should increase the area stretched by up to 1/2 size which may be all you need. I have a lot of experience stretching shoes. Adding a hole or two to the strap of the tighter-fitting shoe should also give you some more flexibility. Shoe companies contract with the companies which own the lasts, the actual molds, upon which all shoes are made. He who controls the lasts controls the industry. Many retailers use the same manufacturers and just put their brand name in it. This stuff is mass produced by the hundreds of thousands and sent all over the world. Some sort of modification to about 20-25% of all the heels you buy is inevitable. The shoe industry will not change for the individual but the customer can change the shoe individually and this is the key. jeremy1986, Thanks for the kind words. These wedges have (including the padding) a heel measuring 5.9".

    Heels and soft ground

    It strikes me with the sheer pounds per square inch on this type of plastic tip will result in product failure within probably 30 minutes of walking on cement as shown here. Wedges come in such an array of styles that can conform to just about any sort of venue. A very chunky heel would also have worked. While golf course grassy areas are of different consistency the ground is always firm but that does not mean a classic stiletto heel will not sink in the soil as it will. This is just another idea for people to throw away their money. HappyinHeels
  9. RonC, I volunteer to help build you a guest house (your new dog house) when your wife throws you to the yard if you use Steve's idea. I'll make sure the guest house has enough headroom to allow room for standing in heels. HappyinHeels

    Boot cut or not

    Ron C, Hooray!! Glad to see you came out of your shell to share the public experience. Pumps are great but they have to fit very well to be fun since there is less room for flexibility. I have worn pumps with jeans or slacks and enjoyed both looks. I am glad to see you are coming around to the idea of wearing wedges. Remember Ron, there are wedges which run from quite casual to stylish enough to wear to a party or outdoor wedding as I have done now twice. They are the most stable sort of heel you can wear for prolonged periods of shopping and walking or attending an outdoor event. I'm not sure where you went on your first public experience but am glad you did it. I stopped by the Aldo Outlet store at the Prime Outlets where the manager there has known me for several years. I went into the store wearing some Steve Madden wedges I am very fond of and she told me of a pair of shoes she thought I might like which were on clearance. The bill was $23.75 including tax. It was the Shizuko wedge from two years ago which I was told several times never came in size 11 but yet here they were seemingly waiting for me to walk through the door and buy them. It only occurred to me later that several people had walked past me while in the store and leaving the store as I had forgotten I had wedges on. This is important since we have 4" of snow on the ground here and doubt anyone else had sandals on today. The point is, and has always been, wear what you want and have fun with it. HappyinHeels

    Heels and soft ground

    Mitsysun1400, Like others here I account for different pavement surfaces or grass instead of some sort of paved surface. If you're invited to an event there is nothing wrong with asking your host about this. I have attended some outdoor weddings on grass and wore wedge sandals which work well for that. If you insist on stiletto heels then you'll have to limit yourself to paved or at least very hard surfaces like packed clay. I've been known to drive by a place and essentially do some reconnaissance. It helps with determining a good place to park, calculate the route to be walked from a bus station to the venue as well as see what type of pavements there are to be traversed. All this reduces the chance of a surprise or a broken heel. After all you want to enjoy your heels, and enjoy the event and venue you're going to. I'm a big advocate of carrying an alternate pair of heels in a bag just in case. HappyinHeels

    GrlNxtDr, I sure hope you two post some photos together as there is precious little of that anywhere. A few photos here and there but really a dearth of photos of couples wearing heels on the net generally. So, I do look forward to seeing what you two post here. Your runway is ready and waiting. So are the spectators! HappyinHeels

    High Heeled Vacation planning

    heelguypa, Ah yes, it would seem the greed and avarice brothers have not confined their craft to only North America or Europe but to Latin America as well. Is it little wonder the average worker has less loyalty for their employer these days never knowing when they'll be replaced. by someone younger and cheaper. HappyinHeels

    Grlnxtdr88, If you like heels, and the company of those who like them as well, then you have landed in the right place indeed! AS you referenced your boyfriend I hope you'll both enjoy the site together. Our site is a fashion site, no porn or kinky crap, so it attracts the right kind of advertisers and a reputable membership base. It's all about the shoes and perhaps the outfits and where on this big Blue Planet any of us may be wearing it. There are men who wear men's clothing with their heels. others are more freeform and wear skirts or dresses, or other mixed articles from both sides of the aisle, while others will dress completely en femme. The unifying thread is the love of the high heeled shoe. I have had many discussions over the past several years about the number of men I believe want to try heels and buy them compared to the number who actually do. I have never had a bad experience and, in fact, have had the best experience when actually wearing heels into a store. I have bought all my heels in-person since 2009 when I started shopping at Bakers before they went bankrupt. I have had the pleasure of meeting several of our members over the years. I personally like higher heels and have just two pairs at 4"/10cm. My preferred range is 5-6"/13-16cm. We have some folks here who really have a great fashion sense. Call it getting in touch with their feminine side but I'd say it's just men finding color and creativity in their lives. ANyways, welcome aboard the "High Heel Train" HappyinHeels
