Hard to get a picture that shows the detail. Wore these to work with shorts. Had numerous women tell me they LOVE my boots. One woman wanted to a picture on her phone with both of us showing our boots. That never happened when I wore men's shoes.

Wow Cali, what a nice pic and great story!  Can you tell us more about how you were able to wear boots and shorts at work?  Is there a casual dress code and is your manager ok with it?   Was it part of an event?  Or did you just decide to go ahead and wear them?  

Wish I could to that.  Wearing my jeans and boots in my avatar as I type this.

I have established the fact that I (medically) need to have a 3.75 to 4.25 rise between my toe bed and heel. I discovered that by accident (aka a different injury) where I HAD TO wear 4+ inch heels to allow my leg to heel. After living 11+ years in constant hip pain and having it disappear when I wore heels, I just did it. As a science professor, I explain it in five minutes on the first day of class and move on. Since I don't like pain, I decide to embrace the fact that I am going to wear high heels the rest of my life and have fun with it. Wearing boots like that and shorts is me having fun while messing with your mind. And when you wear open-toe sandals it's imperative that you keep you feet in good shape and your toes colored. So I have also establish the fact that I like nail polish, including my fingernails. I consider nail polish "changeable body art" and another way for me to express me. I strive to have the women envy my heels and nails.  And they do.  :cheeky:

But it's also is a curse, because, while many women may envy me, they are at the same time too closed minded to date me. It's okay for a guy to wear high heels, but not their boyfriends. A double standard I have to live with.

Exactly the same in my case, although not for exactly the same reason. I get lower back pain when I wear flat shoes, but heels over about 3.5 inches are a miracle cure. I like to wear four inches or more just to be 'safe'...

Funnily enough on Friday evening I had really crippling pain in my hip (possibly sciatic? I don't know), and again the next morning when I woke up, but it then all-but went away when I was in heels. In the evening I changed into slippers and the pain came back. Fortunately it had resolved itself by yesterday but it was an interesting lesson.

I'm slowly pushing the boundaries of wearing heels with family/close friends around but don't want to hurry things as I can't blame them for being like most other people! I've occasionally worn stiletto boots for shopping but not locally! I have never ever had anyone comment on my heels - reassuring but at the same time a bit disappointing...

So far it's long trousers although I'd like to wear some strappy sandals with shorts! One day, perhaps.

I'm finding more and more that I take a while to adjust at the end of the day when I take my heels off. Perhaps one day I'll have to wear heels all the time. Not sure whether I relish the thought or worry about the consequences.

How far have you gone with family and friends?

I wear them for visiting my mother and mother-in-law, and have worn my boots with concealed heels for visiting both sons and respective wife/girlfriend - also my wife's sister and family. I've had no comments but  I know they've been noticed, most recently when we had a 16-year-old nephew to stay, and he definitely saw them when I knelt down to get something out of a low cupboard. He caught my wife's eye and then looked away. (She told me this afterwards.)

My mother is in a nursing home so all the staff see me in heels - so far wedge boots, concealed heels and wedge sandals.

Those boots are hot, unfortunately, so my feet cook in them indoors. Maybe the next step (sorry) would be some closed-toe wedge mules to wear as slippers.

I have some men's shoes with 2 inch cuban heels I wear with a business suit anyway, so people are used to me in some sort of heel - I just need the progression to a higher one which will actually do something for my back pain. I know I can tell people about the back pain, and they can disbelieve it if they wish, and perhaps if that reason gets out it will spread quickly. No one's asked so far, and I don't want to be the one to raise it unless maybe I see someone gawping at my heels and therefore have the opportunity to explain them.

wow, good for you. I mean - not on the back pain and all ....  but on making slow progress with your closest ones.

My mother in law might actually accept my heeling... she could pretty much take anything I think. If I recall, my wife even mentioned to her once that she asked me to "stretch some heels for her once", and that just got an 'ok' of sorts. she's very laid back and accepting.

I don't think anyone else would accept though... 

Re the hot weather - I know what you mean. I love boots too - and wedge boots are one of my favourites... instead of mules (which I pretty much despise :)), what about wearing wedge courts? some of those are really lovely, classic and quite sexy too...

Look into Bare Traps. They have some nice 2 inch cuban heels.

What do the people around you know about your back pain? How long have you had it?

My injury was big time with two 22 day hospital stays, several operations and about a 2 year recovery. My doctor has put it in my medical records. He has observed a 70% reduction in my pain medication since I started to wear high heels.

Jeremy you just haven't met the right mule. I love my mules.

Not a lot of use if you are in the UK, or need a larger size!   I have two pairs of Madcap boots from Atom Retro in UK11, with a 2.5" Cuban heel; good quality, smart and comfortable:   https://www.atomretro.com/product_info.cfm?product_id=11237&d=MADCAP-ENGLAND-CASBAH-CUBAN-ZIP-BOOTS-BLACK   Available in several colours and with zips or elastic sides.  They help to relieve my intermittent lower back/leg pain (sciatica).   Something higher would be good too, but I have yet to find anything really suitable.

A few know about the pain but unless people are curious enough to ask, which has never happened yet, I don't want to volunteer the information just for the sake of it. Let them think what they like for now... However, I think if I explained to one person the word would soon be out to others who have just thought of me as a freak but who can now think of me as a freak with(out) back pain.

Was your back pain caused by injury? Or is it something to do with getting old?

It's probably the cumulative effect of bad posture over the years, standing with my back arched. The heels just realign everything beautifully. Today I'm meeting up with the only person who has made any comment about my heels. Actually, not the heels but my increased height. I'll see if more is said. If he gets to know, a lot of people will know, as he's not quite the ticket and there are no secrets with him!

What will you wear for the occasion?

My concealed heel boots - 4 inches inside a boot which at first glance looks 'normal' apart from being small. I'll post a pic if you like.

Bought off Ebay. I've got another couple of pairs the same - got them while still available. Not the most elegant footwear but wearable in just about any situation - I wore them on a flight to New York and walking round Manhattan last year, and we were staying with friends. You can see the contour of the built-up heel, and I've also for a half-inch lift inside.

Oh, he didn't comment! Funny, he ran out of time while getting ready to go out, and he was wearing sandals... Obviously what he wears around the house.

I wore these boots and shorts but with leopard print leggings to work as part of a Halloween costume.

Had many women in boots wanting pictures with both of us standing in a sexy pose.

What surprised me was how many men told me they liked my boots. Going to buy the blue suede version of this boot with my DSW boot special.

Halloween is a much bigger thing with you - I don't think we'd 'get away with' anything like that over here - more likely be disciplined for inappropriate dress!

Well done, though. You never know, you may have kickstarted a male trend where you work.

I already have a reputation to up hold. Colored nail, high heels with shorts, ....

I hoping to add (high heeled) knee boots with leggings this winter. I think wearing them with shorts might be my ticket.   Now THAT might be the new trend.

Yesterday this one boot loving high heeled woman (who asked for a picture) had these gorgeous front lace-up over the knee boots. She's going to give me the website she found them on.

almost disappointing that he didn't comment :cheeky:

I didn't make them. Bought them off Ebay. They're still available but they go up to size 8 and that's snug. £9.99 plus p&p - I paid nearly £30 for the first pair but they're still going strong. Brand is Spot On, which do several styles with more 'masculine' looks: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SALE-LADIES-SPOT-ON-BROWN-BLACK-HIDDEN-WEDGE-BOOTS-WITH-BUCKLE-DETAIL-F50333/281462542509?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&var=581195277320&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649

Yes, I wish he had commented, really. It seems 'coming out' is a difficult thing...

Oh, the girl who knows about my heels and why I wear them is coming to lunch tomorrow. She's a friend of my wife's. Perhaps I should wear something more daring while she's there. I have some 4 inch wedge boots with heels not much wider than stilettos, and almost as loud.

I think I probably will. I'll see if she says anything... She often wears heels at least 4 inches herself.
