    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 was in JC Penney the other day and I was looking for a red sweater. I was appalled to find all the colors are drab and boring earth colors this year. I went home empty-handed. It's easier and more productive to shop online! Steve
  2. You're right! Cowhide and faux leather are neither fish nor fowl! LOL There's your chuckle for the day! Steve
  3. Here's where you may have a problem. That last word above. If you believe deep down that it is still not "right" for you to wear heels (or women's shoes for that matter), then you're putting a barrier in your own way. Analyze the situation. You're not doing anything wrong. Get that thought out of your mind. You're being YOU. And that's RIGHT! You're making good progress! Keep up the good work. Steve

    I noticed all the negativity, too. I suspect it's mostly jealousy from insecure guys who are scared to death to wear anything that would remotely be seen as female. They probably wear lacy undies, though! LOL If everyone were required to use their own legal name and be responsible for what they post, it would be a lot nicer world withough people hiding behind anonymity. Steve

    Hey, SF! You saw me in gal's shoes, back in February. Those were Clarks "Octavia" clogs/mules with a 3" stacked heel. They're about 10 years old, but intended for women. They're normal for me! Steve
  6. 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
  7. 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
  8. 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
  9. 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
  10. 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
  11. 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
  12. 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,
  13. 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
  14. 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
  15. 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
