Recommended Posts

Thank you all. I wear a size 11 so I had to order them.

When it rains it pours as although I haven't really been after any specific heels as of late, a couple have either became available that I just had to have or dropped in price so much I couldn't resist. The latter relates to what arrived today. Like back in February I noticed these on the Torrid website as they are a combination of two pairs of heels I bought for my girlfriend years ago: A pair of Iron Fist platform peeptoes with a rainbow zebra print and a pair of TUK round toe pumps in a leopard rainbow print. The pair at Torrid was obviously based on the design of the Iron Fist platform but used the exact same material, print and colors as the TUK pumps. I debated on buying them for the longest time until I caught them on the website at the perfect moment - $9.99 on clearance in size 13. They arrived today and I couldn't be happier. Although Torrid branded, the TUK silica packets give away that they were manufatured by TUK for Torrid, something they used to do years ago for both Torrid and Hot Topic. Even better, although listed as wide width they are medium width which is great since the usual Torrid wide sizes never fit me right. So these are medium width TUK size 13's, a total rarity and I couldn't be happier. They look a little big in the pictures but fit perfectly and I can only imagine the fit will be even better without hosiery, which is how I intend to wear them anyway. I just happened to be wearing hosiery when they arrived today and didn't want to change. They're pretty insane but have immediately become the favorite heels I own.

You look great in those shoes Lime15. I like the color very much. Your hosiery also adds to the overall great effect. Great looking legs too! Happy Heeling, bluejay

Got some new tall platform wedges. They're Steve Madden Xenon with a 5.5-inch heel and a 1.5 inch platform.

Yes! I'm digging those shoes...

I've had my eye on those for a while, but haven't been able to find them near me. I guess I could order them, but I really dislike doing that. Wish they would just have them in my size (11W or 12M) in store, but no such luck. I did see something a bit disturbing the other day. One of their stores in my area is being remodeled into what they are claiming will be the largest Payless in the metro area. The sign on the window says something to the effect that - feet come in all sizes, and so do our shoes - and then states Women's Sizes 5 to 11. What happened to size 12? If that's the case, looks like Payless will be out of my loop, though I suppose I could look for 11 wides if they have them.

Those Nine West pumps look great Fatfuzz - can you get a pic with the heel showing? I like the style and they look good on you.

Thanks Ron. I'll get some more pics together soon..

I just bought some new pumps last night. I got them at TJ Maxx. They are Bandolino pink patent pumps. VERY nice! The fit is a bit tight, but i'll loosen them up. As I wear them.

Very nice! Bandolinos are one brand in which a size 11 will often fit me decently. Most others require a 12. What size were these? I don't often find any size 11s at TJ Maxx.

OMG, where did you get them? I want to buy those so much! The only problem is, as usual, the size, as I need 11/12 US, i.e. 42-43 EU.

Nice to hear that someone else wants to wear pink pumps.

I bought a pair of hot pink patent pumps last fall from Aerosoles called "Tapestry", with 3-1/2" stacked heel. They ft well and are easy to walk in with the stacked heel. I wore them several times in October for, "Breast cancer Awareness Month". I got several compliments and thank-you's from the ladies for wearing pink!

Happy Heeling,

Yes, JeffB pink is nice. I think that I posted some pics last October of myself, wearing my new hot pink pumps, from Aerosoles. You will have to go back on my," Heeling with bluejay", thread to view them.

Happy Heeling,

Ok, ok, I'm going to have to reconsider stilettos. I have been of the outspoken opinion that I don't look good in them because of my somewhat stocky body shape, but maybe I'm wrong. I was on the payless.com web site last night and I couldn't help but notice how outstanding the reviews were on their Karmen pumps. It's just a classic round-toe pump with a 3.25 inch (8.3 cm) stiletto heel, but just about every review was extremely positive, especially on comfort. I got so engrossed in reading the reviews that I ended up reading all 168 of them over 28 pages! I also counted that at least 14 reviews (almost 10%) were by males, some of whose names were the same as on this forum. I gave all of those reviews "helpful" votes. By the time I finished reading them I had to go try them on at least. This morning I called the local Payless store and they had the pumps in stock, so this afternoon I went over there and a young woman greeted me with a friendly smile and asked how she could help. I told her I wanted the Karmen pump in black in 12M, and she led me right to it. She handed me the box, and we chatted a little about the rave reviews on this style. I sat down, took off my Naturalizer Tribute wedge sandals, and she could see I was wearing nylons, so I tried on the Karmen pumps and they were a bit snug and a little short in the toe box (but it's nearly time for my monthly pedicure, so my toenails are a bit long). The young woman left me on my own, as she had work to do, so I tried on the 12W and they fit over my bunions better and fit better in the toe box,too, and I tried on the 13M but they slipped off my heel as I walked. I wore the 12W for about 5 minutes, walking the length of the aisle to see how I liked them. The gal returned and asked me how the 12W felt, and I told her I thought it needed a little more arch support, and I asked if they had gel arch supports. She looked and couldn't find them in larger women's sizes, just up to 8.5, so I didn't get them, but I did buy the shoes, said I would wear them on the carpet at home, and if I didn't like them I'd bring them back. We had a delightful conversation and she was impressed with how confident I was about wearing women's shoes. She rang up my purchase and I came home, put the pumps on and I've been wearing them for an hour so far. They really are very comfortable. The only concern I have is whether the throat will rub too much on my bunion area. I might need a small piece of medical tape to prevent a blister. One of the reviewers commented that the shoes showed no toe cleavage, but I do see some. All in all, it's a great looking classic pump and has the promise of being very comfortable for long wearing. I can see myself wearing it a lot this summer, to the office, around the house, to the local pubs and restaurants, and for aerating the lawn! :penitent: Steve

Steve, we're making you a convert to stilettos too. Hope you enjoy wearing them too! happy Heeling, bluejay

I do find them much more maneuverable once you get the hang of them. Being able to turn off a narrow heel does have it's advantages. You will also wind up building ankle strength to accommodate the added mobility.

Alright Steve!!! Glad you gave them a try. As you know I find them comfortable and most of mine have a higher heel. Good choice for a start. I believe you will be a convert after today. Will be looking forward for your report. :) Jim

That sounds like a very positive outcome after a doubtful start. I like that she was impressed with your confidence and not just that you could physically walk in them.

Hi,

You look terrific with those shoes, and actually, they are not so much visible, as they really fit with your entire look, even if they "glitt" a bit...

You look really natural and relaxed in your pics even if I prefer some of your other shoes in Flickr, you definetely give a masculine look, with high heeled shoes, and I really like this!!

Thank you for sharing!

Thanks man I really appreciate it. Thats been my whole concept plus my wife has been helping me get ideas on how to dress. Just to show that I don't have to do the stockings garters and that I'm a man and I'm proud to wear my shoes. I mean there are some limitations on who and when I wear them around but again thanks Black Boots!!
