  1. hiddenheels, Thanks for finally joining the forum! Our members run the spectrum from transgender and transsexual to heterosexual men just wanting to wear heels either at home or in public. Still others, like myself, enjoy blending both more feminine clothing with mens or androgynous styles to create a look having elements of both or presenting completely as a woman. It is a transformation like in a play or movie and can do wonders for the soul. No desire to actually get an operation rather the desire to cross the boundary, enjoy a day or two or a night wearing exciting clothing in bright colours and then change back into my normal rural guy mode. What our members share in common is a the high heeled shoe and where we might wear it, what we may wear it with, and how all of this enhances our lives. What conflicts you is how society generally affords women full latitude in wearing whatever they want. They wear everything associated with women and a lot things associated with men. They wear lots of makeup or none at all, wear heels or not, show their legs and arms or not, wear wide watches or thin watches and carry handbags of all imaginable sizes and colours whether or not their pants or dresses have pockets. By contrast men don't seem to have the same latitude. But it only seems that way. Few, if any nations outside the Islamic world. specifically prohibit men from wearing womens attire. Men simply choose not to explore their curiosity lest they catch the wrath of a bogeyman who never materializes. I have met several of our members here and have had lovely experiences with all of them. Just so you know it's not made-up internet bullcrap. I have visited mlroseplant a few times and he wears his heels everywhere in small-town Iowa and nothing bad happens. I've seen him in heels and he's seen me and so has his family. I have visited Steve63130 and his wife in Ohio several times wearing rather tall heels and a blended look as described above and had nothing but positive experiences. I have met with Cali in California twice and seen his love of heels and he's seen mine. We are office workers, people in the trades, retired law enforcement, medical personnel, factory workers, politicians, etc. None of us could explain exactly why we like heels except that it is in DNA. So, go with it!! Heels may make you a better person, a better lover, or a better friend. They will undoubtedly make more aware of fashion and perhaps make you more polite. Those are all GOOD things. If you love your partner with all your heart, respect your fellow human beings, the animals, and plants around you then high heel shoes/boots should never impede your ability to enjoy your time on This Earth. This last bit is very important. You will sort through it and figure out where you you fit into the overall scheme of things. Just do it with confidence and the world shall take note of it. Remember, the world is NOT either for or against you rather it is utterly neutral. But the world does notice and tends to respect confidence. Confident people are often successful people but success can only occur as a result of confidence in one's own ability. Ability to look into others' eyes, dress oneself to match one's mood, and stride confidently out the door and demand to be counted as an individual. You have a right to express yourself via your clothes but that right must be exercised to be enjoyed and defended. It's all up to you! HappyinHeels
  2. Aniston is noted for wearing wedges not only in movies but also in her daily life. She is seen with Sandler on the promo cover for "Just Go With It", as well as at the very end of "We're the Millers" in the back yard when they meet their new neighbours. Since I love wedges I have always liked seeing her wear them. She has commented many times that she goes for casual comfort and wedges are perfect in the mild climate and sunshine of Southern California. I am satisfied with my collection of wedges and can only imagine what hers looks like. She looks good in everything. It's a shame her relationships haven't gone well. HinH
  3. That color is amazing. What would you wear them with? HinH
  4. They all look great on you and are something I’d wear. Good choices! HinH
  5. I just flew through McCarren Apt en route San Diego and was amazed at the high prices of the food choices. Some concessions are notably cheaper than others but overall prices were quite high. Otherwise it is Las Vegas and you can wear as high a heel as you handle, woman or man.
  6. Thanks/Obrigado. It is a dress I've had a while. Have only one other pair of heels with this colour in it. I did just my toes this colour though. HinH
  7. I am impressed with your generosity but it's probably a normal part of the Iowa identity. As to those people who may cringe at wearing someone else's shoes I guess they have never shopped Goodwill or St. Vincent de Paul or any other thrift store for that matter. Besides things like laundry detergent and sanitizers are cheap and plentiful. HinH
  8. Je vous en prie/You're welcome. HinH
  9. My thinnest are on two of my Bakers pumps with standard stiletto heels at 5.5"/14cm and 6.5"/16cm respectively. HinH
  10. They are comfortable and the neutral colour will go with anything. Didn't wear them to the wedding as it was a former co-worker. I have, however, dressed as my alter-ego and attended some outdoor weddings. It is fun just like going anywhere in heels. HinH
  11. These are Steve Madden "Citrus" wedges which I got at Macys last Sunday. THey have 6"/15cm heels. HinH
  12. K2inheels, COngrats on your accepted wedding proposal! I just attended a wedding in Green Bay last Saturday for a ex-coworker. He remembered me in retirement so I made the trip up there. It was an outdoor wedding so wedges were the shoe of choice. You are indeed lucky to have a woman who supports you by "walking the walk". HinH
  13. Enribote, I know you like your heels but I highly recommend against showing them in Dubai. As Chorlini wisely pointed out do not mistake the country's modern appearance for a modern social outlook. Dubai adopted its current western-looking and tourist-friendly facade because they knew they were about to run out of oil and they do indeed tolerate forms of behaviour from Westerners normally obnoxious for them because they need the income. It is as simple as that. There is a reason democracies in Islamic countries as rare as radium. I happened to live in one of them in Turkey but even Turkey has become more authoritarian of late. Morocco, Tunisia, and Jordan are probably the freest but the rest are authoritarian states. Lebanon used to be nice until the Iran-influenced Hezbollah got a stronghold there. Whilst I am neither a Muslim or Jewish I nevertheless use my five senses to come to a rational conclusion. Israel is the only true democracy in the Middle East. Jordan is a kingdom with many of the underpinnings of democracy and Turkey was a dynamic democracy until the last ten years. Tunisia is freer than it has ever been and may turn out to be the freest Islamic nation of all. Morocco, while not in the Middle East, is an Islamic-majority nation with a workable democracy and is friendly to the West but it is not hard to get into trouble there. If you are not in one of the aforementioned countries you are in a place of one-party rule where religion if politics and vice-versa. Women are not treated well, electricity comes and goes, the side of the road is a longitudinal dump, and police/military checkpoints are a national pastime. If this description doesn't paint the picture then I don't know what does. Absorb the advice of others well-travelled and do what what seems best for you. Whilst I have learned about 100 words or so of Arabic in my travels, and it does do wonders to open more doors, I also recognise these people have a different outlook on life and we are not part of it. Ultimately the traveller has one goal in mind; to go happily and without undue delay. Never forget that. Je vous souhaite tout le meilleur sur vos voyages. HappyinHeels
  14. This site IS a reading scheme. It encourages us to read others' experiences and thus adds to our collective human experience. Whilst the vast majority here go about their business alone we all still migrate back here to read the journeys of others and the purpose of our site is fulfilled. HinH
  15. Exactly. Cali knows something about projecting confidence and I have mentioned this fundamental belief many times. Just get out there and enjoy and believe in yourself! HinH
  16. The trick is actually spotting a man in heels. The enormity of people moving in all manner of directions and your eyes trained on one narrow slice of it make the odds small. Your odds get better if you sit somewhere with a view of a busy sidewalk and sit in a mall where you can watch many people pass your vantage point. Back in 2012 before the Steve Madden in Milwaukee closed the staff there had told me they saw men in heels walk by their store every single day from their vantage point. The vantage point one has seems to make all the difference it seems. I'll keep wearing what I like and maybe I'll run into another dude wearing wedges just like me. HinH
  17. I have used foot pads from both Bakers, when they were in business, and Aldo but almost exclusively in my pumps as few of the other styles seem to need them. I think part of the reason I put the in the pumps is that I normally wear them with hosiery. I can't ever remember wearing pumps in bare feet. Hosiery will cause the feet to slide a bit more as moisture is being wicked away. I have enjoyed wearing my wedges in bare feet this year which means I have to keep those toes nicely polished. I have had more compliments this year then any previous year. I do encourage you all to wear your heels out and enjoy your life. HinH
