Similar general appearance, but not the same person, surely?   Apart from anything else, our NZ friend favours mostly higher pointed stiletto courts.

From last night's Golden Globes, Bill Porter on the red carpet...nice boots.

 

Billy Porter was on Good Morning America, last Friday. He was definitely wearing heels. Red patent 2-3" block heels. Even though he was seated at the desk you could see his heels under it. Any one else catch the show?

Happy Heeling,

bluejay

Thanks Bubba. I think it's two different people.  If he's a member here, his posts are probably full of valuable content.

Former head designer of Yves Saint Laurent, Italian fashion designer Stefano Pilate started his line RANDOM IDENTITIES through Instagram.  Here's Vogue.com's coverage of his recent release at the Pitti Uomo menswear shows.   All looks had heels.

This is good stuff, and really appeals to things I like!  Belted blazers, coats, boots, etc.

You sure about that?  To me it doesn't look like they are the same people.

Definitely two different people. I talk to Mark fairly often on another group. He loves heels and id an avid, full time skirt wearer.

Maybe invite him over here for an Ask Me Anything (AMA)?  He could contribute value without necessarily committing to a long term membership.  I'm sure people here could learn from his experiences....

For those interested, ETRO had a few New England style prep menswear looks with knee high riding boots

Knee high riding boots were also on Dolce and Gabbana

I just don’t get why they would put shoes or boots out on males.  I know absolutely no one male or female who would wear those or even where you would wear those.  With fashion shows showing crap like that we males will never get any acceptance.

Nothing about any of the shoes or clothes are attractive. Also, no actual rise on the boots, just horible.

I like the knee-high riding boots. I've got 4-5, if I could just get around to shooting photos.

Rick is pretty avant-garde, but in those circles so many people really wear Rick Owens pieces that people have started getting tired of it lol.  Given the kind of cult following Rick has in designer male fashion, I think this hints that broader acceptance of men in heels is trending.  
 

I like Dries Van Noten’s FW20 Collection too - belted blazers, tall lace-up boots, furs, broaches, evening gloves - seems like men’s fashion is finally beginning to not be so afraid of feminine association.

It's a nice look. I've a pair quite similar to those, but darker brown. I wear them a lot.

Frankenstein footwear again!   Yuk.

It is only so that the public can see the bottom of their pants. With all these smoke, heels were required.

Jared Leto in heels at the Gucci show for Milan Men's Fashion Week.  Check out his brooch!

People might not like his style which was specific for the Gucci show.  But check out Gucci's financial performance relative to the fashion industry.  It makes heels for men sustainable.

Gucci's designer, who has worked for Gucci for 5 years now and symbolizes Gucci's financial ascent, remarked, "Childhood means romanticism and this is missing in today's aggressive phallocratic society. If every one of us would free his feminine side everything would be easier and happier." source

Not seeing much I like, though the Jared Leto boots were pretty decent.  The huge clunky platform stuff is just that - huge and clunky - and not appealing on most any level.  And the knee high riding boots leave me cold.  If they had a heel of some substance I could see it, but otherwise I personally see no appeal.  Just my take on things.

There might not be much to like about the overall looks. And certainly much has been taken from women's causal looks with the cross-cross,  "slashes", and one shoulder styles.  But with so many designers showing heels and boots this might catch on.  Showing styles with  boots outside pants, no matter how high the heels is, makes it more "mainstream" for me to wear my Jessica Simpson stiletto boots outside my skinny jeans.

I like to think of it as the fashion industry is following my lead.  When will they catch up to the 4 inch stiletto look? :giggle:

Shout out to the designer Laurentin Cosmos, who actually has "skin in the game".

You are so right, this man has done a lot to help men wearing heels in the direction of "mainstream"....  Sure wish I could pull it off so well....

@p1ng74 Just browsed through r/malefashion

The number of pics of men in heels is remarkable.  

It's more widespread than my previous biases assumed.

Wow.
