Streets are salted somewhat plowed yet so cold the snow won't melt. Yet the cold didn't discourage me visiting the mall doesn't stop many mature ladies either venturing out themselves. Had to make a quick decision to wear my born rubber sole block three inch heel booties or my new Karl Lagerfeld hiker boots visiting the mall. Thought to play it safe since it's cold and parking lots might be covered with blowing snow, since having wind gusts making it chiller then it was, i decided with the hiker boots and wool socks displayed on top of my  jeggings. 

To my surprise at the mall observing with more intrigue versus shopping were women's shoes or should i say boots they were wearing. Almost every woman i encountered with my short visit was wearing some sort of heel. In fact seen more woman wearing thicker stiletto heel knee high boots then i ever seen before. Even seen gal in five inch red sandal sling back stilettos which confused me because of the sloppy weather outside.  

Thinking because of the bad cold weather yet sunny skies woman would be in generally flat boots. Goes to show you never know what  woman will be wearing at any given day.  Although it seems to be older ladies 40's 50's years of age in heels rather any younger ones i may have glanced upon. Mall was quite from younger ladies maybe because it was too cold to go venture out  shopping. Felt it was a good time to venture out at the mall late sunday afternoon near closing time.  The shopping demographic seems to be more stylish and heel loving rather the normal black leggings flat sole knee boots or ugg wearing young woman. 

Did get many looks from woman even a bored  young SA had the surprised stare and scan of my attire namely the fur lined hooded parajumper jacket. If i read older female reactions correctly,  maybe they liked the style i was wearing as we made eye contact passing one another. Walking by shoe store one SA just locked her eyeballs onto my boots, after her initial full body scan for whatever reason. Woman maybe feeling suffocated wearing ugly winter boots needing to force the issue attiring there heels following bad storm day. Sort of same beliefs we as males on this forum go through mentally  desiring to do in public for ourselves and maintain some sanity wearing heels.

Just like anyone well styled  often motivates and encourages others and gives new ideas fashioning clothing when bad weather hits.  Do believe when the bad storm the previous day came through it narrows woman's choices of footwear they be wearing. When snow falls suppresses woman's choice of shoe attire they often need to express their desire by wearing heels  the next day as i mentioned above.

Could be coincidence or that woman want to wear heels even in a mall climate controlled mall setting. Seeing it would make it more difficult to venture outdoors on the snow icy street. One opinion i feel i learned was if the weather is dry and less frigid woman can wear almost anything heels at any given time. Often they decide to wear flats to the mall fully aware they can wear there heels later on the street because of there environmental reason allows it.

Think it's a matter of having to much of a good thing wearing heels whenever woman choose, often forgoing to where them at malls when shopping as change of pace. When the choice is limited for woman keeping there heel shoes  stored in the closet they resent that because of the weather. Yet often venturing in heels  in surroundings they normally wouldn't tread forcing the issue tired feet. Woman are more vain then we tend to believe.

Meeting the namesake.

I went heel shopping today, still looking for knee high leather boots with a full zipper.  The mall was EMPTY today, many shops had NO ONE in them shopping. Went to major brand names, Stuart Weitzman, Kors, Steve Madden, ….

Stuart Weitzman had a very nice leather pair for only $285 (reduced from $795+), but not in my size.

At the Steve Madden store a sales assistant and I got into talking boots. It turned out that she use to work at one of the Freebird stores and had meet the man that design Freebird shoes. I reached over to look at some boots and she asked “Are those Freebirds?”  I had my Freebird Blaze on today. We then went on talking about Freebird boots, how she rarely sees them in California. Then she said they named a shoe after her, a shoe that I own two pairs of – the FB Canti.

It’s a very small world out there.

A few years ago I was at an Aldo store where my manager friend worked when she showed me a boot with my last name on their website. I told her since my last name is very rare I found it unusual they would have named a boot with this name. I pointed out Aldo is headquartered in Quebec but even there the name is rare. I never saw the boots in-store and they were not available online soon thereafter. I think an email to the corporate office in Montreal about the origin of shoe and boot names may unravel this mystery. HappyinHeels

Sounds like you guys had great days out, love talking boots with like minded strangers....  I don't think I have to worry about anyone naming boots after me though, "old corn flakes" probably won't attract many boot buyers

Yes, Cali loves his wedges and has many of a style I like as well. California is an ideal setting for them. My grass will not look like that until May. We have 15" (40cm) of snow on the ground right now. HinH

You got to remember that platforms are great when there are puddles everywhere. I wish I could have cut my grass today but most of it was underwater.
