    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. I'm fine with any idea that will generate more interest and activity on the forum. Let's give it a try. Steve PS. Hmmmm...I'm a "Steve with two dots." What's the message here? LOL
  2. I typically wear 3" block, stacked, or tapered heels, rarely stilettos. It's usually just my wife and I in the office, and it's important to be able to walk comfortably, so I'm not interested in achieving great heights. Hmmm...reminds me of a Henry Wadsworth Longfellow quote: "The heights by great men reached and kept were not attained by sudden flight, but they, while their companions slept, were toiling upward in the night." Sorry, I don't work well at night! LOL Steve
  3. As Bluejay mentioned above, we've met on several occasions, and each time we bring our new acquisitions for show and tell. He lets me try on his new shoes and I reciprocate. It's always an evening of great fun. We don't have exactly the same tastes, as he prefers thinner heels and I prefer block heels, and he prefers bold colors, while I'm more conservative with blacks, browns, and navy. Nevertheless there are several models of shoes we both own. It's fun to try them on and learn from the other person. I wouldn't let any stranger try on my shoes, but Bluejay isn't a stranger and I know he keeps his feet clean, and he knows I do the same. Steve
  4. Try to find a pair of Clarks "Adya Clara" heeled mary janes. They won't slip off and the heels are non-slip rubber; quite silent if you prefer that quality. Plenty of room in the toe box, and not overly feminine. I love mine! With boot cut jeans I wear them everywhere. Steve
  5. Most of Nine West's styles have this configuration, too. I agree that it looks uncomfortable. I don't own any heels like that. Steve
  6. Very similar indeed. Similar fears, similar breakthroughs and aha! moments, similar recognition that guys can wear whatever they want and nobody really cares; the demons are in our own heads! I wear ballet flats quite often. I still love wearing heels, but there are lots of times when I'm in the mood for flats. I've collected quite a few pairs over the past few years. That's a particularly good web site you cited above. Steve
  7. I can definitely attest to what Bluejay said above. He is amazingly fearless when it comes to wearing women's clothing and shoes, but clearly presenting himself as a man. Like JeffB, he has a good eye for matching colors and styles, observing what women wear, and he puts together some very natural but fashionable outfits. And he gets lots of compliments, mostly from women. Men are, by and large, too judgmental. I think many women who see a guy in skirt and heels, or even just the heels, or for that matter, just in ballet flats, figure that if a guy has the courage to wear in public what's traditionally worn by women, he must have a lot of confidence, and confidence is sexy and appealing to a lot of women. Happy Heeling, Bluejay! Steve,
  8. I agree with Shyheels. You've clearly pulled your wife too far out of her comfort zone, and she is probably fearful of "OMG, What's next?" In retrospect, you should have gone with something more conservative, as Shyheels suggests, and let your wife adapt and adjust to your "new normal" over time. However, since you didn't go that route, you would probably do well to show her extra special love and attention, and make it clear that she's the most important thing in your life, not the boots. Let her know how much you appreciate her tolerance, but you should realize and accept that she will probably never learn to love your stilettos. Here are some styles of more conservative boots from my closet, which are styles suggestive of what you might consider for next time, if they appeal to you. Good luck and let us know how things go. Steve
  9. Bluejay, that shows the power of reviews. People do look at them and sellers do care about them (or they'll be out of business, well deserved!). Glad your story had a happy ending. Now you'll have shoes for St. Patrick's Day next year! LOL Steve
  10. What??? No bonnet? No hat? C'mon, Jeff! Easter demands one! You gotta shop around for a cute one! Glad you had a great encounter and a fine outing. Steve
  11. We flew Qantas to and from (and within) Australia recently. The flight there was on a 787 and it was quite comfy; I actually slept fairly well, which I normally don't do. The flight back to LA was on a 380 and the seat was awfully uncomfortable for me (economy). I didn't get a wink of sleep. I'll be sure never to fly on a 380 again. I was NOT impressed. To keep on topic, I wore my Clarks "Octavia" clogs with 3" stacked heels, which I've featured in other posts. Clogs are easy to slip on and off. Steve
  12. 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
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
