    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. Why do you love to wear High Heels?

    TXguy, I think you've an ample array of input here on our collective love of high heels. A question I'd have for your wife would be if she is uncomfortable at seeing you in heels are you uncomfortable at seeing her in pants instead of a dress or skirt. Exactly! I'm old enough to remember when no woman was seen in pants in public. They evolved and asked nobody else's approval when it happened. Equality is a two-way street but men have to have the cojones to claim it for themselves. Some women are insecure about it thinking the wearing of heels means their man is going to want sexual reassignment surgery and these are two COMPLETELY different things. Keep striding ahead my friend because you desire to wear heels will not be going away any time soon. HappyinHeels
  2. The High Heeled Ruminations Of Melrose Plant

    mlroseplant, I have found the technique is to go down with the feet canted at an angle to compensate for the higher angle. I have gone down steps in my own house, department stores, and even a set of carpeted steps at a restaurant with Steve63130 and his wife in 6" wedge boots and always descended with the feet angled. I want to master every venue and situation in heels just as any woman would want to. It is the only way you'll fully enjoy the heeled footwear you've already invested in. I've worn wedges shopping and at an outdoor wedding and pumps to dinner and platform sandals to a few parties over the years and never fallen anywhere. I pay attention to the approaches to any venue to avoid potential problems. It doesn't mean it will not happen but it hasn't yet and it doesn't frighten me. I have so many heels of 6"/15cm or higher so now's not the time to get scared. HappyinHeels
  3. Hi from Montreal, Canada!

    bootedlawyer, You have an interesting boot collection and it all looks good on you. You are in the right place for sure. Unlike Bnchmark, I don't dislike Quebec and don't think they'll ever separate though I believe in self-determination. My father was raised about 80 mi/130 km northeast of Montreal near Shawinigan. I was up there in April as the last of the snow was melting. Thanks for joining our site. Soyez la bienvenue chez nous! HappyinHeels
  4. I am a flightless bird since I have no wings. I have sat in planes for many hours while looking at wings and later wondered how I went this great distance. Maybe it was the liquor or maybe I wound up in a Delorean going 88 mph. The joys of time travel! HappyinHeels
  5. Heels for an interview

    If a man can "move the merch" as they say in the retail world then he has achieved the goal of any retail establishment. Choice of footwear should not make any difference. I realize plenty of places still play the traditional gender role game. The more comfortable employees feel the more likely they are achieve any reasonable sales goal set before them. HappyinHeels
  6. I've had a beard twice in my life; 1979-1980 and 1986-1987 before joining the Border Patrol. Haven't had anything of one since then. It is undoubtedly the first place those pesky gray hairs start growing. I have a slight moustache otherwise no body hair and I like it that way. HappyinHeels
  7. Care too much

    Steve, And here I thought you were an advocate of towering heels?!? Maybe he has to go with a lower profile skyscraper. I'll suppose we'll call them mini-scrapers. HappyinHeels
  8. New marketing for pantyhose for Men

    I'm surprised nothing from Steve63130 yet so I'll chime in. I know a guy, no a ham radio operator, no a men's hosiery entrepreneur living in Central Ohio who knows all about this. His little firm is called Activskin.com and the products are made in the United States. Get quality hosiery made for men and made in the United States. How the heel could you go wrong??? The truth is out there.....somewhere near Columbus, Ohio. HappyinHeels
  9. A Hard Summer for my Sandals

    mlroseplant, Are you sure you don't want to learn something of being a shoe cobbler?? I feel better when I can stretch a shoe or dye a shoe to the desired color. I really think you could get some get some rubber and make your own sole repairs. While sandal sales abound this time of year it is simply impossible to just replace a pair of shoes you really love so why not learn how to restore them?? You already work on cars in heels so why work on heels in heels?? I guess this is where the rubber meets the road HappyinHeels
  10. Wild about Wedges

    Cali, We had six days straight of days with maximum temperatures at or above 91F/32.5C....in southeastern Wisconsin! I wore wedge sandals every day but one. My legs aren't as tanned as yours but they are smooth and with turquoise toes. So what new job did you wear the wedges to??? HappyinHeels
  11. Starting my new automn-winter in heels

    jim102, Nice to hear your voice here again. As far as how I feel when I wear heels; "J'ai un sentier d'egalite et d'independance personelle." I believe all of us here feel we are projecting a natural part of our identity with the heels we wear. This is what women feel so it seems logical men could feel the same thing. Life is not the overly complicated thing some would have you to believe. Barring some accident or predisposition to disease you shall probably live to 80 years or more, and being from Quebec, you most likely will since people there live longer than anywhere in North America. You should see and do as much as you can while you have the money and health to do it. The question is what will you do with the opportunities you are given? This is what holds most people back. The sooner you embrace your exact personality and then go about your business the sooner you start enjoying this journey called life. Nearly everyone on this forum who has come out of their house and walked about the world, as men in heels, reports the world did not end nor did some monster jump out from the bushes. Inn fact, most report the nearly complete lack of an obvious reaction. Just show confidence and the world will meet that confidence with a positive light. I could count on one hand the number of times I was complimented on a suit I wore or a tie or a pair of pants as a man. I would need several people's hands to count the same number of times I have been complimented on the choice of wedges, pumps, or kneeboots I wore as a man. The contrast is stunning and it feels amazing. And that, mon ami, is the essence of life. Be yourself, taste amazing, and indulge yourself in the joie de vivre around you! It sounds like you have and others will only become more likely to do the same when they read all of our accounts of "adventures in heels". HappyinHeels
  12. my 017 adventures

    w6ish, You always look amazing in your tight jeans and tall heels. The distressed look is not for me and I never understood it. I like bootcut , skinny, and boyfriend type jeans but they are pristine when I get them. The darker the better. As far as heat goes, we just completed six straight days of maximum temperatures at or above 32.5C/91F here in southeastern Wisconsin, truly an impressive hot spell so late in the year. It has also gotten very dry here. Sandal weather hasn't quite come to an end yet. Of course, my sandal weather may go into November. HappyinHeels
  13. Heels of summer

    SHyheels, I made the comparison with the U.K since that's where YOU live. I know about Seville as I lived in Andalucia for 2.5 years in the 1980's. Serious heat well above 40C is confined though to Spain, Italy, and sometimes Greece. The rest of the continent is rather mild especially given its latitude both in summer and winter. I do study these things. I have kept records since 1970 and am a cooperative observer with the U.S. National Weather Service. After all, you don't see palm trees growing at London's latitude in North America or Asia. HappyinHeels
  14. Heels of summer

    Higher wedges with jeans or a dress for a special occasion. Pumps or sandals in the fall and pumps or boots in the winter. Hot is relative but here's one way to define it. The World Meteorological Organization standard for a "hot" day is a maximum of 30C or about 86.2F. That would certainly exclude the U.K. most every year. Every state in the USA and every province in Canada hits 30C each summer. Places like Australia, the central and southwestern parts of the USA, most of Mexico, large swaths of Africa and central Asia, and most countries of South America see summer temperatures exceed 40C. Europe is a mild quirk in this regard. I suppose a pint of Guinness will get the blood flowing so wearing shorts under overcast skies and in 15C temperatures becomes no big deal. HappyinHeels
  15. The Jaunts of JeffB!

    See Jeff, You changed your background and effectively changed your world. Outside, sunshine on those toes, and looking younger all the while. Thanks for considering the suggestion to change the traditional, albeit predictable, curtain for an outside setting. The outside lighting gives more pop to whatever you are wearing. Might I suggest a pair of higher wedges with one of your skirts?? You do the skirt thing well and have come around to wedges so I'm curious what obvious wedges would look like on you with one of your skirts. Remember Jeff, you are one of our premier runway stars. No pressure though. HappyinHeels
