In many countries you are always being observed.  And almost everybody has a phone to take videos, too.  "Smile It's Candid Camera" meets George Orwell's "1984."

When I visit Vietnam, my mother-in-law dutifully reports my presence to the authorities. We always arrive late at night, and the next morning, a dashing young man in a crisp uniform shows up at our house to take down my information. This is strictly for my safety during my visit, of course.

Those boots are amazing, are they Omano boots?  Such a powerful heel.  How are they to walk in, must be fairly comfortable or you would not be wearing them through airports.  What size do you wear?

Right  @pebblesf ! They are very confortable. I put them on at 9 this morning and am  still wearing them now at 7 pm. No need to take them off. 

They come from Extreme HH in Spain. Quite expensive but worthies the expense. Perfect balance. No feet,knee or back pain !

Great looking boots that fit properly and easy to walk in are worth every dollar you spend for sure...  Wondering if "Extreme HH" is formerly "Omano"...  I have always loved Omano boots, fairly certain they were produced in Spain

Not sure it was formerly Omano. But sure they are on the same line. You can ask for anything,but you don’t have to be in a hurry and ready to spend some money. I met both Pablo and Esther who run the company. They are very nice people and passionate .

Combat boots for the flight back. Not as confortable as the Oxford I was wearing 2 days ago.  

It was a little bit difficult at the end. Ok,I had to walk quite long from the car return to the terminal. 

But nevertheless a good feeling

I take the heels apart. I like to modifying some shoes with a difference heel. 

And the trash for the shoe itself. A shoe that does fit will never fit.

The fitting of a shoe depends on several factors that the Chinese factories don’t master.And unfortunately not only Chinese.  So chance takes  an important part.  

I like heels that are rather high. And I want to be confortable. So no compromise.

Here are 2 pictures I took at the beginning of my last trip. 

These are both Chelsea  boots. One is 14 cm and suitable for  all sorts of activities .The  other one is 15 which I keep for even surfaces as hotels  

Both are very similar so the height difference isn’t obvious

Thank you @bionicbabe. I don’t have more pictures  at present. And I wasn’t proud of the quality. 

I would need someone else could do that for me. Not easy or more exactly I m not bold enough for asking. What could be fun fotrvel, with heeler buddy and bring a lot of pictures from different places And situations. 

Better wait covid 19 is over.  No real fun at present.Only the heels keep me motived.

i Lomé the square boots you have in your album.  

As asked some pictures I took myself as strolling through the city 

no bad comment,no one had stared at me.But for sure noticed.

I am pretty sure that Omano became Extreme HH, otherwise known as Estres Modes: https://extremehighheels.net/es/15-zapatos-de-tacon   The product range does not currently seem to consist of much other than stilettos; the Omano-style boots worn by Pierre (which have a very acceptable male look) don't appear.   For my money (and less of it is needed), Miguel Jones (Cowboy Boots USA) would be a good source of bespoke boots like Pierre's.

You are right. The Cuban heel style doesn’t appear anymore in the new extreme HH. But for sure you can ask for such shoes. 

I got one pair from Miguel Jones a few year ago. It was quite difficult to get the right size. I don’t think you can have really high heels there ( I am wrong?) The pair I got is ok for garden work, very strong , heavy and even if these have a real male( more rustic cow boy) look they not suitable for matching a city outfit. Nevertheless I like them.

I have a few pairs of MJ boots as well, Pierre's comments are what I have found also.  The sizing was off by a size or two, but the last pair I bought was a few years back...So, you definitely want to be sure they are returnable/refundable.  The heels and soles are very sturdy indeed, but I don't think they are very well "engineered" for extensive walking.  I have a few pairs with 5" heels...My stiletto boots are much easier to walk in...

I am so upset that I didn't buy a pair of Western Ranch boots several years ago, always wanted a pair of the Omano boots also..

I have one pair from MJ - 5" heel and a perfect fit for me.   As you say, rather heavy but well made.   These are my boots - similar to the Omanos but more pointed:
