I'm sorry, @CAT,.They look similar but I see they are different . I looked at them and plan to see if my dsw has them.

G by Guess has been pushing these styles over the last few years. I have two different pairs, neither of which we have posted. Maybe I'll get a picture for you. I'd have to think they will have a new style out this year too. They seem to sell well as they run out toward Christmas.

I really need to try that style on first. 

I looked at DSW yesterday but didn't see anything I liked. Didn't have time for the mall. Later this week.

If you are going to wear heels to work in the summer why hide them. Shorts and wedges today.

I was going to a coffee shop at work and two women passed me and told me that my shoes must be hard to walk in. I respond that they weren't, really very comfortable. As I walked in a woman behind me, also in high heels said to me, some people just can walk in heels and we laughed.

I find it humorous when women see men wearing heels and ask/comment on how we manage to walk in them. Sure, I’ve been asked that question, and my response is a simple one....PRACTICE.

Wore my tan SM Manners with shorts to all day all-hands meeting. The woman who sat next to me wanted to try on my heels. Turns out she was a size 10 too, but we didn't exchange shoes. 

Then while walking to a sub-meeting another woman stopped me to compliment me on my heels; told me she wore heels for over 20 years but can't presently wear them because of foot pains, I really walk like it was nothing. I thanked her.

Sounds awesome. I learned a long time ago that if women like something they see, they’ll compliment you. I’ve had women, young and old say nice things about my skirts, dresses, shoes, handbags, even my earrings. That ALWAYS feels good.

Thanks Jeff. My nails also got a lot of compliments, I'd show pictures of them but those pictures disappear.

Again all day meetings. Wore the Charles David Affluent wedges (below) with dark blue shorts and dark blue shirt. Five compliments on my heels, women really like this old heels. Several very positive compliments on my fingernails. One woman told me she was jealous because I always have nice nails and asked how I find the time to do it. LOL

Just a quick observation. My Ex came by the other day. She had on the same Teva (flat) sandals I have and in the same color. I've had mine for 4 years now, her's were new. Asked to borrow some of my nail polish for her toes, I said no.

Went shoe shopping today. Been looking at these Steve Madden Sneakers

The CLIFF sneaker — a hot new standout with a collaged construction and playfully exaggerated proportions. Incorporating mixed prints and creative color blocking, this kick is suited for runways and city streets alike!

  • Leather, fabric, and man-made upper material
  • Twill fabric lining
  • Rubber sole
  • 2.5 inch heel height
  • .5 inch platform

They didn't have this on in a size 10, just shipped it out yesterday and size 11 was too big. So I tried on the multi-black and it fit nicely. So I had to decide on getting the multi-animal print or the multi-black one (below). The sales associate and I talked a while. She thought that I was bold enough to own the multi-animal look, but the multi-black would go with more outfits. I got the multi-black.

After getting the sneakers, I venture upstairs to Express Women's to look at their boots, not much there. Then on the way out I walked thru the large Macy's women's shoe department and saw the Kenneth Cole New York Women's Justin Block-Heel Tall Boots. These are the type of knee high leather boots I have been looking for...with a full zipper. I tried on a burgundy pair in size 10, just a bit too tight, and the a size 11 in snake print, too big. But I could see myself rocking the snake   LOL.

The picture below is the Justin in suede.

It really isn't Cali's nails or the colour that adorns them this week or next. It really isn't the wedge sandals he wears to this meeting or that. It really isn't the best-looking legs on the Central California Coast. No, it's Cali's CONFIDENCE which blankets all he does and wears that has these women complimenting him. That confidence is the energy fueling the blast furnace of the individual as he forges his own personal path. That's why it works and that's how it can work for so many of us. One only need try. I'm surely glad he does. HappyinHeels

It takes a certain amount of confidence to walk into a busy store and ask to try on a pair of heels. It's so easy to get intimidated and walk out. Once you have over come the "flight" impulse it can be very enjoyable. The Sale Associates at several Brand Name women's shoe store recognize me as a customer that tries on heels and buys heels and (I think) give me better service than the average customer.

I am an all-the-time heel wearer, I couldn't be one without confidence, too scared to live life.

I guess I really don't even think about this much any more, but yeah, I guess it does take a certain amount to get "over the hump" and go into a shoe store, particularly one where you have to ask for the shoes to be brought out. I think it helps a great deal if you're already wearing heels (and probably a smile as well) when you go in there.

Chunky Heel Day

With temps in the 90's today I wore my FB Cantis with short shorts and a linen shirt. The wooden chunky heel on these Cantis make a great LOUD sound, especially when walking on concrete. It's a sound you have to own.  I had FIVE women tell me they love these heels today.  One women not only wanted these heels but also my legs...lol

I just love these heels and have them in two colors. These listed at $300, but I didn't pay that for them (new).

And I have meet Canti, the women these heels where named after.

Sorry the above picture is so dark, but this after at 14 hour day, spend in these heels. The picture below are the same heels in the other color.

Cali,

Great story Cali! I have a pair of JS sandals with a chunkier heel which make a distinct sound on pavement as the bottoms are wood. They are featured in my album. I never tire reading your experiences. Keep striding and writing my friend :fine: HappyinHeels

Thanks HinH.

Don't you just love that wood-on-pavement sound, it's so distinctive and it turns heads. If you can't handle the sound then you wouldn't be able to wear heels like these. We have a lot of concrete and polished concrete floors where I work so there is no avoiding making noise. I have about 6 pairs that make this sound.

These are also very bold in-your-face, perfect for an almost senior citizen.

Steve Madden sells these sneakers as a Women's with style name Cliff and as a Men's with the style name Ridge. Both have a 2.5 inch heel and a .5 inch platform.  I bought the Cliff because my feet fit women's and don't fit men's These women's are milder than some of the men's

There was a Job Faire for the students at work today. I walked around to see who was hiring. At one table there was a woman sitting there with her brochures and the company sign that I didn't recognize. She motion for me the come over to talk (it was slow). It turned out she was representing a shoe store/company and had noticed my heels (another short shorts with my SM Manners). She just had to talk to me and wanted to invite me to their store.

A Job Faire? Can you apprentice to be a cobbler? Or maybe a butcher, a baker or a candlestick maker? Or perhaps it was a French Affaire. :giggle:

LOL. Thanks kneehighs, it made me laugh. I have more and more men tell me they wish they could color their nails, both toes and fingers.  To me nail color is just changeable body art. Tattoos and piercings aren't changeable. 

First I think those sandals have too many straps for men's.

Second, I have a similar toe color on now.

Second, they don't fit. Can you say "toe overhang?" Third, he's got hairy chicken legs.

My last toe nail color was a blue shade.  It looked nice...  If you are going to wear sandals (heels or flats), your feet and toes should look nice....   sf

Did anyone else scan through the comments on the ad? Responses in large unfavorable toward the shoes and the pedi. A few pro-nail color comments, that’s good. Full disclosure - I’ve become a bigger fan of male toe color than heeling.
