  1. Nearer, my God, to Thee Nearer to Thee E'en though it be a Sky Jack That raiseth me
  2. ASOS continues to offer high-heeled footwear for men (and others). These ankle boots are now on the website, both available up to UK12: The stated heel height on the first is 6"; the second is 4.5". I will leave others to decide whether they are attractive and wearable, especially given the platforms and/or diamante trim.
  3. No indeed - the hi-viz jacket would be totally inappropriate. 😁
  4. At Waterloo Station, you would definitely need platform shoes! I am reminded of the two woman chatting at a dinner party. One told the other that she had an ancestor who was killed at Waterloo. The other asked (innocently): 'Really - which platform?' . The first responded (disdainfully): 'As if that mattered.'.
  5. I agree - and end up with your two legs stretched to slightly different lengths and you would spend the rest of your life walking round in circles! (But, if you ever did decide to go ahead, you'd have to change your name to 'kneeshigher'.)
  6. Quite so. The never-ending (and very repetitive) television coverage all week has been tiring enough, even if watched selectively.
  7. The absence of a review, especially of a more unusual or extreme-styled shoe (ASOS or otherwise) leaves potentially interested buyers at a disadvantage. Do the shoes run true to size; are they comfortable; are they well-made??? Without some feedback - good or bad - anyone buying 'blind' is taking a bigger chance than they need. ASOS is not known for consistency in size/fit, for example, so any purchase likely to be a gamble. I would have to decide between at least three size/width fittings if I was buying anything from ASOS.
  8. Yes, the absence of reviews is unfortunate - and perhaps worrying.
  9. Interesting to see that (as of today) these ASOS stiletto boots are all sold out except for size UK6 (which very few men would need). I wonder if the other sizes (up to UK12) proved very popular or simply that the quantities manufactured were low - testing the market, perhaps? There are currently other ASOS boots for men with modest heels, of which these are perhaps the most 'daring' - and still available in sizes UK 6-9, with UK 10-12 sold out. Imho, they look very good when worn as shown with slightly flared trousers, although the chain is rather too prominent.
  10. I'm glad to hear that the account was true. My doubt was based on the publication of other stories to like effect, e.g. American tourists who had wandered into the Balmoral gardens and came across the Queen and her gardener planting roses, with a similar question and reply.
  11. There is a story (possibly apocryphal) of the American tourist couple who, wandering around the countryside near Balmoral, came across the Queen, out walking and accompanied by her policeman 'minder'. They failed to recognise her in her very casual country clothes but, knowing that the Queen's residence was nearby, asked her if she had ever met the Queen. The queen replied, deadpan, 'No - but he has', indicating the policeman.
  12. I sent you a PM a while ago which you appear not to have seen yet.   You may wish to read it.

  13. Nearly everything shown there is ugly and cumbersome - good only for Frankenstein's monster at Halloween. I suspect that what most of us want is a development of the Beatle boot - slimmish block/Cuban heel (3 - 4"), tapered toe and no platform or other thick sole.
  14. I bring a warning from the Pharaohs: 'Watch your step'.
