    Noticing people in heels

    I'm getting the same thing....
  2. Thanks to all for the thoughts and prayers. Bubba, I will know when the drugs stop working, so there will be time to dispose of whatever is necessary. Some people with my type of cancer have gone five-six years with the drug I am taking, so it's hard to say when it will catch up to me. Hopefully not any time soon! And Jeremy1986, yes, cancer is on the rise, but that has as much to do with how much longer people are living today as anything. Eventually, the body just cannot keep it from happening. If not for that, people would be living well in excess of 100 years. I know I'd have no real desire to reach 100 personally though, as most at 100 are pretty frail and dependent on others to a great extent. Not somehwere Ireally want to be for a long period of time!
  3. Wife does not know, and after nearly 50 years together, I'm not going to throw that at her. It's just simply too late - though I admit that I have been somewhat sloppy in covering my tracks lately and may at some point have some difficult explaining to do!. The other factor for me is a recent health issue - cancer with no cure in sight. My time on this planet with be limited. Taking drugs to stop progress but no one knows how long they will work - one year, two years? Just don't know. So she really doesn't need to know about the heels at this point as it would just add to her anguish. So I will just keep quiet and enjoy the occasional chance to wear some heels as long as I can. Probably why my biggest enjoyment these days is shopping and trying things on rather than actually buying the heels, as my chances for wearing them went way down when she retired and I'm no longer home alone during the daytime.

    Another member from down under

    Nice boots and shoes. For public wearing, I personally prefer the shoes to be hidden under my pant legs. I bought a pair of jeans with an inseam 2" longer than my usual size and they work great for that. I have been wearing my 3.75 inch heeled booties to a number of different shopping locations and if anyone has noticed, they haven't raised a fuss. I did run into a neighbor once and was freaked that she would notice as she is the type that would broadcast it to the entire neighborhood, but she apparently did not notice either the shoes or my added height whn she gave me a hug. Thank goodness!

    What matches purple heels?

    Yes, stairs are a challenge. Must make sure that heel clears the step behind the one you're stepping on to. When I see a woman in heels descending a flight of stairs, especially something like at our nations capital building, I am always impressed by their grace at doing so without the benefit of a handrail. Mrs. Trump does an excellent job at that (no political intent).

    Who has bought some new shoes

    Not a big fan of slides and platforms, but these are cute! Great calssic pumps with toe cleavage - a favorite of mine hernaezjames. Sandals are pretty cool as well. Was that something else wrapped around your ankle above the shoes?

    Something Different

    Well done! Those heels look great - they'd be beyond my capabilities though!

    Chores in heels

    That is true, Cali.And yes, Don, if I had it to do over again, I would tell my partner.

    Who has bought some new BOOTS?

    Picked there up today and immediately wore them out to do some shopping. They definitely run on the large side, as the size 11 I bought are actually a bit large on me. Heel height in size 11 is 3.5 inches, which is just right for me. Paid $39.95 on Amazon as they are a last year style. I will enjoy these. Bandolino Women's Layita Ankle Bootie, Kona Tan, 11 M US

    Chores in heels

    No Mike. Wife has never known and I will die that way unless something unforeseen happens. Just too late now to go down that road.

    Chores in heels

    When my wife was working and I was between jobs, I used to do the housecleaning in heels.

    Can feet shrink?

    While there is no denying those who had shoes that were too tight but now fit, I also believe that shoe sizes as a whole have gotten somewhat larger - what used to be a 9.5 not maybe fits like a 10. I used to have to really squeeze into a size 11, but most now will allow me to get into them. Though that is not across the board. In store yesterday I tried on a couple pairs of size 11 and found one that fit very nice and a couple that were snug. Then I saw a pair of Nine West pumps in size 11.5 and thought great, these should fit nicely. I could not even get them on!

    High Heels Through The Ages

    That photo from 1959 is great. As an 8 year old, I was just beginning to figure out that I had a thing for high heels. I really like the very feminine look of the shoe on the left as well as the bow pumps second from right. Those shoes from the late 60's and early 60's will always be my fvorities, which is why I still have a thing for the classic black patent stiletto.

    Highest heel you've worn

    My limit on a single sole shoe is about 4" to 4'5". Anything higher is too mych pressure on the big toe/ball of foot joint. And personally, I agree with Shyheels - anything much higher than that is too fetishy and in my opinion just doesn't look right. Just watching celebrity ladies in their 120mm Louboutin's tells me that even mst of them find the height to be a bit much as many have ankles that just don't flex enough and they end up looking awkward walking in them. I prefer to see a lady that can walk comfortably in her heels.

    Need your help!

    As a rule, I would say the brands you mentioned tend to run on the narrower side. The length is generally fine, but the width is usually a problem for me.
  20. God luck on the nail fungus cures. I've had it in all toes for about 20 years now. Some things improve the look, but I've never found a cure. I was going to try laser treatments but I've developed other health issues that make nail fungus the least of my concerns, so I'll live with it for as long as I have left on this planet.

    Who has bought some new shoes

    Redandwhite - both are very nice styles! I'd happily put on either pair!
