    High heels, 2.5 to 4 inches, with 0 to 3/4 inch platform; prefer clogs, sandals, pumps, boots, and loafers; usually wear with nylon hosiery in public, with long, bootcut jeans or slacks that cover the top part of the heel; always present myself as a confident, fashion forward male. My wife approves of my style and is very supportive.

  1. SF, We had a great time as well. Look forward to getting together again in the future when our paths cross. Loved your sandals. Steve
  2. Shoeshow.com is an online retailer that has an enormous selection in size 12 and 13. I've done fairly well by them over the years. There are brick and mortar stores in central Ohio to which I can return items which don't fit, and so there's no shipping charge to return them. And with regard to the Nullarbor Plain in Australia, my wife and I were there just a couple of weeks ago, taking the Indian-Pacific train across the continent. It was 3 days and 3 nights. Quite an adventure. They announced over the PA system when we started and finished that straight stretch of track, 477 km, which took several hours. And it was fun to wear heels (and ballet flats, too) while on the train. Here are photos of the three pair of heels I took and wore in Australia: Born "Belinda" platform sandals in black with 3" heels, Born "Rutina" platform sandals in brown with 3" heels, and Clarks "Octavia" clogs/mules in black with 3" heels. We also had the chance to meet SF in person for drinks and dinner in Los Angeles before we flew over the Pacific. We had been emailing for a few years and narrowly missed an encounter in person in Vancouver a few years ago, so this time we were sure to make it happen. He is on the right in the photo, and I'm on the left, wearing the Clark's "Octavia." Steve
  3. Krystof, Good work, mate! You should be very proud of yourself. That first step out in public is the most difficult. It gets easier each time after that. If I were in your country, I would make a special trip to your store to buy shoes from you. You're doing the right thing, and you will be successful! Good luck! Steve
  4. Yep, I agree, too. What I meant to say was that my choice of platforms is because I can pick a wider range of styles that aren't as feminine as classic stilettos, strappy sandals, wild colors, and bling. I don't care if I'm noticed, but I don't want to wear clothing that's conspicuous and screams, "Look at ME!" I think I blend in pretty well, though. At least I'm comfortable with the image I present, and that's what counts. But I want to stress that I don't wear ONLY platforms. I have a lot of single sole heels (and flats) as well, and I like the variety of what's in my closet. Steve
  5. I like platforms precisely BECAUSE they don't look as feminine. Most of my clogs and a lot of my sandals have a 3/4 to 1 inch platform. I don't go for the fetish shoes that have 2-4" platforms. I find that a low platform is easy to walk in, looks more unisex, and I'm very comfortable wearing them in public. I have a lot of single-sole shoes, as well (in fact I have a lot of shoes period!). But I do like platforms - some examples below. Steve
  6. WD40. Steve (just kidding - don't try it!)
  7. Congrats, RonC! Major milestone. Go for 2,000! Steve
  8. Kjones92, Congrats on your first outing! It gets easier every time, and pretty soon you'll look back and wonder what all your fears were about. Yes, you might get some compliments, but don't be surprised if you don't. People are pretty much wrapped up in themselves and if they're not paying attention, they won't notice. And most people, if they do notice, won't care. We who are into high heels think everyone notices, but in truth, they don't and don't care. Practice. A lot! Wear heels every chance you get. You need to build up your ankle muscles so that you can walk gracefully and not clomp around like a teenage girl in her first pair of heels. If you're graceful, you will blend in and feel confident, and that's the key to success. So get out there often and strut your stuff. Watch where you put your stiletto heels. Sidewalk cracks are dangerous! And stay out of parks at night. You'll attract undesirable people and possibly the police. Go to busy places, such as malls and coffee shops - much safer and much more fun! Good luck! Steve
  9. Chaos, But at the Walk-a-mile event, EVERY guy is wearing heels, mostly stilettos. Why in the world would your wife object? It's a fund-raiser, not a fashion show! Find an event near you and plan to do it if you want to. It's for a good cause. I did it once many years ago. While it was interesting, I didn't find it fun and I haven't gone back. There were too many people in the crowd watching and laughing at the guys who couldn't walk very well in heels. Even though I had lots of practice and walked gracefully, I just didn't like being associated with guys being laughed at. In other words, the best part was the Chinese restaurant we went to afterwards! Steve Steve
  10. Here's a link to an article in Footwear News, a trade journal, about heels for wide feet. "Cute" is in the eye of the beholder. https://footwearnews.com/2019/shop/shoes/heels-women-wide-feet-1202725647/ Steve
  11. Some of us happen to like kitten heels. Heels don't have to be 4-5 inches to be attractive, in my opinion. Wear whatever you like. Jeff, you look great in those Shoes of Prey pumps. Steve
  12. Yep, time to replace them for the new year! Steve
  13. Men not only have a more limited choice of styles and colors, if they choose to wear women's shoes, they are limited in sizes as well, since many men have feet that are bigger than US Women's 10 or 11. HinH, I did not catch that use of the words people or person instead of woman or women. Very astute! Thanks for pointing it out. Steve
  14. Here's an article from the industry magazine Footwear News: https://footwearnews.com/2018/shop/shoes/best-heels-for-foot-type-1202720816/ I should not be wearing heels at all, apparently, since I have flat feet, bunions, and a hammertoe! So Crocs, here I come! Steve
