    Character shoes

    I don't know if these count as "character" shoes, but I wear them a lot and I'm a character, according to those who know me! One is Clarks "Adya Clara," the second is Clarks "Emslie Lulin," and the third is Clarks "Rosalyn Wren." They're all mary janes and very comfortable to wear. (Some day I want to get a job being in charge of naming new styles for a big shoe company!) Steve

    My first ( of hopefully many ) posts.

    If you're going to have your own blog, you need to post frequently or people will think you abandoned it. Out of sight, out of mind, they say. So stick with it and post here frequently. I like those pumps and the patterned hosiery. Steve
  5. I really hate to see this feud continue any more. Both Kneehighs and Shyheels are my friends and while they don't agree on this matter, I think it would be better to drop the subject here and move on. Squabbling doesn't do our cause any good. In support of Kneehighs, I find his articles interesting, provocative, and cutting edge. If others think it's marketing gobbledygook, that's too bad - their loss. I hope heel (pun intended) continue to post articles and write about the fashion industry. Some of us appreciate it very much. In support of Shyheels, I agree that seeing men in heels in public at random is a rare event. I've seen them at charity events like Walk a Mile in Her Shoes, and in my personal contacts with several of the gang who post here. So you're both right. Stop arguing. It's silly. Ignore each other if you must, but don't think of leaving the forum. You're both insightful people who make very intelligent and interesting posts. Now let's move on. Thank you. Steve

    High Heels Losing to Sneakers in Popularity

    Shyheels, Thanks for the warning. I'll be sure to avoid the museum! Naw, just kidding. It's really an outstanding place, and anyone who visits Toronto should go there. Steve

    Psychology paper on high heel wearing

    Excellent advice! I'm glad you took it to heart. "When the going gets tough, the tough go...shoe shopping!" Steve

    Nine West

    Nine West and Bandolino have reportedly been acquired by Marc Fisher. Looks like they might still be around in the future. Steve

    The Jaunts of JeffB!

    Jeff, Nice outfit. Just wondering how you got all those big guys to play in your bedroom. Musta been crowded! LOL (Just kiddin' ya.) Steve
  10. SF, That's ok. I remember now. It's been a while since I used one (4 decades!), and I forgot. LOL Hey, I've got a riddle for ya. What's a 10-letter word that you can type using only the top row of letters QWERTYUIOP? (Hint: you don't have to use all the letters and you can use others more than once.) You will be amused by the answer. And to keep on topic, I'm in my black Clarks "Banoy Tulia" sandals today. Steve

    Cali, I did state that Vector didn't wear heels, and I wore loafer pumps with a two-inch heel. Good idea on the DSW web site. I found the navy David Tate pumps, "Sabra," on their web site, but the size of the pumps I tried on (and which fit perfectly) was 12W. The only width available online in navy 12 was extra wide, which would be too wide on me. It's possible either that the pair was sold since I tried them on, or maybe that DSW's computer system didn't list them because they were on clearance. But I'm not heartbroken. I knew, as I walked away from the deal, that I would probably never get them, and I'm ok with it. I would have preferred a higher heel anyway. Thanks again for the good idea, though. It was worth the try. Steve

    Vector, It was a privilege being party to your party! The entire afternoon and evening were awesome! We had a great time, and so did everyone else! And the bride's shoes were spectacular under her white dress with long train. She was beautiful! And you looked radiant, too! Your flat, men's tuxedo shoes didn't do you justice! You should have worn the Mossimo D'Orsay heels! Several people we met at the wedding did ask how we knew you, and like you and I planned beforehand, I just related that we happened to meet at a restaurant in Canton, Ohio some years ago (seven, as I later found out - 2011), we got to talking and quickly became fast friends and have stayed in touch. All that is, of course, true; I just left out the part that we were all there to attend a high heel meet and go shoe shopping! LOL Enjoy your honeymoon with your honey! Safe travels! Steve

    If you can overcome your shyness or embarrassment to make friends on this forum, those friendships can often lead to real life meetings and lots of fun. I had three of them in three days, a new record for me! On Thursday, July 26, HappyInHeels, on his way east to visit family, stopped here in Ohio and we had happy hour and dinner at our retirement community. He met some of my friends and was warmly welcomed by the spokesperson of our "Meet and Greet" happy hour committee. She's only 99, sharp as a tack, still drives, walks without help from a cane or walker, has beaten cancer, and will celebrate her first century in September. HiH and I didn't have any opportunities for shoe shopping this trip, but we've done it in the past. He brought some new acquisitions and showed them to me; nice wedges and knock-out stiletto platforms! I showed him some of my newer shoes as well. After breakfast on Friday morning, he continued his eastward travels. Then my wife and I drove to western New York, where Bluejay and I got together for an evening of shoe shopping. We went to an upscale mall, where DSW was our first stop. I found a fantastic pair of navy David Tate pumps in 12W which fit perfectly and were very comfortable. Unfortunately they were priced out of my range and the sales gal didn't have the authority to mark them down at all, so I didn't get them. Bluejay tried on some casual shoes but didn't buy them either. The store wasn't very crowded but there were a few other customers. Nobody stared or commented. We had fun looking at all the shoes and trying some on. From there we went to Macy's where we were both appalled at how messy the clearance racks were. It was awful. I don't understand why sales people can't straighten out such a mess in their spare time when they aren't helping customers. It's just bad management. We left Macy's and went to Payless, where they had one of the biggest collections of Sizes 11, 12, and 13 I've ever seen! We tried on several styles, and Bluejay bought a nice pair of shoes which he liked. They were brown suede sandals with an ankle strap, which looked very nice on him. From Payless we went to Torrid, where I splurged on two pair of flared jeans, but we didn't see any shoes we wanted. So we went to have dinner and a beer in a local pub and then went back to Bluejay's place. I brought a gym bag with about a dozen pairs of my latest shoes, and he had a couple of bags of his own. We spread our shoes out on a table and proceeded to try on each others' shoes. We had a great time and learned a lot about shoes we hadn't considered. Bluejay isn't into mary janes, but looked great in mine. I'm not into platform wedges, but he had some comfortable ones. He also demonstrated what good a pad on the ball of the foot can do to keep feet from sliding forward in sandals. On Saturday my wife and I attended the wedding of Vector, who posts here on occasion. I first met him in June of 2011 at a Canton, Ohio, heel meet, and we hit it off well. His girlfriend was with him then, too. We have kept in touch and a few years later they visited us in central Ohio. They finally decided to tie the knot and Saturday was the big day. I always thought Vector was quiet and reserved, but he sure knows how to party! It was a fabulous event and we really enjoyed ourselves! No, he didn't wear high heels to the wedding, but I'm sure he wanted to! I wore my Naturalizer "Taylor" loafer pumps with 2" heels. We took satisfaction in seeing lots of women dressed in some beautiful heels, including the bride herself! Anyway, our best wishes to Vector on his new journey with his lovely bride. So that's it! Three heeling friends in three days! Gotta love HHP. If it weren't for this forum, I wouldn't have the privilege of meeting these life-long friends with a common hobby! Steve

    What is this "at work" you speak of?

    Hopefully with a return (round trip) ticket! Steve
