    Are we addicted?

    Thank's , I believe you see where I am coming from with my opinion . My intention was not to argue but rather make some think about the word addiction . That word is not always associated with drugs or alcohol , it can be with things /actions that one gets from joy or happiness . High heels give me happiness , It's that simple . I am happy you have shared in my thunder because you understand .

    Are we addicted?

    hahahaha ! If it is so easy to get rid of your heels then do so . I would be willing to bet you could not last a year . Who is willing to take the challenge (not me) ? My bet would be the first time you saw a pair of heels you like in your size you would purchase them . Let me guess the excuses 1 ) I like them for fashion reasons . 2 ) I don't have to prove anything . 3) I feel more confident in them . and the list goes on and on . Sure enough we can word this as passion , addiction or even a fetish , at the end of the day we all love to wear heels . Then again does this really matter why I call wearing heels an addiction ? The word addiction seems to have been taken out of context , why ? I notice some have been beating my opinion down over this and again I ask why ? If you all would prefer me not answer or post then by all means send me a message and I will be happy to keep my opinion to myself . fair enough ?

    Damage your heels can cause

    My youth group had a costume party at the minister's house . The year was around 1985-86 and wearing heels in a conservative community was a bad thing unless you went to a costume party or such . I remember the minister's wife a very nice woman getting after me for wearing them on her linoleum kitchen floor . She said " if you are going to dress as a woman , you need to know never wear heels on linoleum they make holes or dents ". Fortunately , I kicked my pumps off before I did any damage . Unfortunately , I lost the best costume contest even after all the compliments from the girls about how I looked so good and could walk in my heels so gracefully . I think Freddie Krueger won the contest . My wife has got after me about the same thing when we first got married , we lost part of our renters deposit due to floor damage ( my stilettos ) .

    Boots platforms peep toes or wedges

    To answer the original question , platform wedges . I do have some of the other styles and they are just not as fun to wear anymore . They are being given away , donated and trashed more and more with each new purchase of wedges .

    Who has bought some new shoes

    How many pairs of shoes do you have

    HMMMM Interesting question , I will have to physically count them someday . Before the purge of 2016 when over 45 pair were donated or given to another member in here (thightbootguy) I had over 150 pair . Since then I have added a few and given more to charity . My wife has encouraged me to start reducing my heels . With 1 purchase , 1-2 are removed .I don't wear them as much as I used to and my higher stiletto heels are just not to appealing to wear anymore . I am just as happy in my wedges or Keds . By estimation , there would be about 70 pair . Eventually my goal is to be closer to 20 or less .

    Are we addicted?

    No , that was not my intention ..... I have been told many times by my wife I have an addiction to heels and my planes and sometimes even a fetish for bombers . By my dictionary , what I found on google , she is correct .

    Are we addicted?

    Sorry if I have offended ! I would like to direct your attention to the bottom two . That is what I am referring too . Definition of addicted : having an addiction: such as a : having a compulsive physiological need for a habit forming substance (such as a drug) addicted to heroin b : strongly inclined or compelled to do, use, or indulge in something repeatedly addictedto chocolate addicted to (watching) soap operas

    Are we addicted?

    I feel we are heel addicts . We are also at different levels of addiction . Same as a cyclist covets different frames as mentioned above or the Ferrari . If you were to ask my brother the difference or even one of my sisters about my shoes all they would notice would be the color . We see more than just the shoe we see the whole picture of the shoe like the heel style the material or the sole of said shoe . To me that would make us addicts . We also try to wear them every chance we can and we take the best care of them we possibly can . You take a cigar smoker look how they covet the taste and try to keep the cigar at the perfect temp.until time of smoking . I have a collection of models kits started in the 1970's to modern day releases of WWII aircraft from Axis to Allied . I keep all my kits at a controlled temp . . Financially speaking , no I will never let any of my addictions get in the way of my families needs , bottom line we all have addictions in some form or another .

    Wild about Wedges

    Being a self proclaimed wedge lover and admirer . I thaught I might tell you guys in here about an experience I had . My sons graduation from high school was this past weekend . We arrived early as to get bleacher seats close to the floor . My in-laws are in bad health and unable to climb the steps up the bleachers . While in line outside the school waiting I could not believe all the women wearing platform wedges in all kinds of colors and styles . There were not as many block heels as one would think with them being in style this year . I told one lady to the front of us in line she had a nice outfit and her shoes really looked great she smiled and said " I always wear wedges , they are so cute and comfortable " . My wife told her she loved them as well . She and my wife decided the block heels were just a fluke of time and I agreed . I really wanted to get some pictures of her shoes , but some ladies think that is creepy so I figured best to just try to find some on line to share . The picture shown is almost a perfect match only her's were a little darker in shade like a chocolate brown .

    Have you been caught?

    A few years back , I ran into one of the girls from my old high school working in a shoe store in Louisville , KY . I was wearing a pair of my wedge pumps and black jeans . She said when did you start wearing heels . Wanting to down play the situation I just said "you didn't know ?" She responded with how long ? I said since our school days . She said "seems like I knew that " Funny how people seem to remember things with just implying something . It was a great visit and I purchased many more pair there until she could find a better job .

    Old faithful heels

    I have an old pair I go to all the time myself . Nothing special , that's for sure just some comfy old T straps . I purchased them at Payless when you could get the larger sizes at about any store . I ended up buying 2 pair in white and one pair in black denim .
