Who has bought some new shoes

Recommended Posts

I am an American size nine, in most heel styles. The boots I tried on at Aldo were European size 39, which were quite snug.

They have a 4 3/4 inch pencil thin stiletto heel and a 1/4 inch platform. Very comfortable to wear.

Here are my new boots (quite difficult to wear them...):

Those are really sharp boots. Black is always a nice color and the heel doesn't look all that high to me. Pair them with some jeans and you can pretty much go anywhere. I'd be curious to know why you consider them difficult to wear.

I consider it's difficult to go out with, because in France, mentality (is it the right word?) is very hard.

When you pass throw the standard of the fashion, you pass for a TV :w00t2:

Also you think they are "soft" for the heel high, a man lokks ridiculous for other one with heels (hard to explain the thing :cheeky: )

In France, men have to wear men's shoes. :nervous:

Here are my new boots (I bought them this morning) :santa_hat:

It appears that you've worn them a lot, already. The style is perfect for street wear. Only the shape of the heel gives away the fact that they are from the women's style. Wear them with confidence and pride. Even in Paris, where every difference between male and female is accentuated, you shouldn't have any difficulty, what so ever.

Hey all, I finally got a couple pics done of 3 new pairs of boots I've gotten the over december. The first pair is a pair of flat slouch boots that I've worn over my jeans with NO reaction. I find it weird that I get more looks from ppl when I wear heels under my jeans, than when I wear these over them. Anyway, here's a pic of them:

These next ones I bought on a whim cause I noticed they were half off. Again they're a slouch, but too tight to wear over my jeans, but they still zip up nicely around my leg. They have a 3 - 3.5 inch wedge heel. Altho I'm not sure if you can call it a wedge cause the whole sole of the boot doesn't come in contact with the ground. if anyone else knows a better name for these types of heels, please share!

And these have a nice story. Since the summer I've been keeping my boots at my gf's place. That way if I (or she) want's me to wear a pair of heels, I can change at her place without my parents knowing. Her parents know about my thing for heels and are totally use to it, they were a little surprised at first, but they're open minded and know there's worse things their daughter's bf could be into. So one day My gf's mom, my gf's 10 year old sister (who has also come to terms with my heels), my gf, and I were out shopping just before C-mas at wal-mart. Well me and her went to the shoes, and we each tried on the same pair of boots (in the up comming pic) but each in our own size. Neither of us had the cash on us, so we put them on layaway with the rest of the stuff her mom was putting on hold and I said I'd get her the money after c-mas, I hate owing ppl anything, but its not like I wouldn't see her again, lol. So come C-mas I went over to their house for dinner and afterwards we exchanged gifts. Her mom handed me one, lo and behold it was the boots... from my gf's parents no less. I thanked her tremendously, and it made me realize something. Her not caring my boots were in her daughter's room was kind of a "no biggie" thing on her part, but her actually buying me a pair of heels, (IMO) is truely a sign of acceptance.

Anyway, here's a pic of the boots. Sorry I have no pics of the boots with any outfits, but I'm sure I'll get a chance. I haven't worn these out yet, but I may soon. Let me know what you think of them all. Laters!

That is an awesome - very positive heel story. Nice to hear that there are open minded people out there that appreciate and accept men in heels. I went to Payless yesterday wearing my 4 1/2" wood stacked tapered heel anle side zipped boots. Felt great and the gals there know that I wear high heels and help me find new ones whenI visit. They did not have anything new and the young gal made it a point to tell me that they had a new shipment coming in on Monday. I loved walking around in public in my boots. Bernheels

After Christmas sale on these that I could not pass up after finding my size 12 in stock! They don't have the highest heel but feel and look great. This is my first new purchase in over a year and it was time. Can't wait to get out and about.

Jim, there aren't too many Famous Footwear stores where I live so I haven't been in too many. The few I've been in didn't seem to have anything larger than an occasional 11 (womens). I need at least a 12. How common are 12s or even 13s in FF? Boots only. I went to their website and they only had boots up to 11. I checked out their mens boots and while they were nice, they almost all looked like they were patterned after swimming fins! Why is it that most mens boots look like this? That is one reason I think womens boots look so much better. The have decent looking toes. Rounded, squared or pointed are better than swimming fins. Unless I want to go snorkling in my boots! Thanks BG

Newfie, that is an amazing story!!! It must be really comforting for her parents to be so cool with it. And those boots - what an unusual zipper on them! I've never seen anything like that before. Wear them with pride.

Thanks guys! The zipper on the stiletto boots are actually just for show. They only pull on with a half zipper down by the ankle on the inside.

BOOT GUY,

The stores near me have a decent selection up to 11 early in the season but now pickings are slim. I searched online on various selections and searched inventory for what I wanted by the zip code search function. There were several stores with size 12 but the selection was 1 or 2 different styles at different stores. I pass the one I stopped at on my way home from work daily and do really like the boots I purchased. I did try them on in the store with no concerns from any other shoppers. Try online and search the stores on each pair you like. Good Luck!

Jim
