Men in Women's Shoes

Discussion of fashion elements and looks that are traditionally considered somewhat "femme" but are presented in a masculine context. This is NOT about transvestism or crossdressing.

Especially Japanese schoolgirls! :lol:

Here are pics of two of the shoes that I would like o wear out and about. Not me wearing them as I couldn't get a good pic of that.

Faith 8 s.jpg


Jacques Michel 8 s.jpg

Brand Jacques Michel size 8

Both pairs of shoes are really comfortable and I have worn them indoors for an hour or two. Walking in a heel takes a little getting used to, especially going up and down stairs. They were bought second hand from ebay a year or two back.

Check eBay. You can probably find just about anything there. :lol:

I have big strange shaped feet and have to have a tall toe box so many of the shoes in the women's department just don't fit.
Open Toes, Ballet and many pumps are just out of the question.

However most of my boots are from the women's departments with heels that are 2" to 4". Can't really tell is people notice or not but I feel more self aware when I'm in spike heels, or maybe it's just that those heels are not as easy to walk in on uneven ground compared to the more common block heels.

In my experience, heels draw at least as much attention as a skirt.

Taller, noisier, and more vividly colored heels all increase attention.

Dark colors (especially black and brown), block heels, and lace-ups all decrease attention.

You're never going to have the same gait in heels that you do in flags, and that will also attract some attention. But the more smoothly and easily you can walk, the better. Practice makes perfect.
Courage, conviction, nerve, verve, dash, panache, guts, nuts, balls, gall, élan, stones, whatever. Get some and get skirted.
