Now if they would only bring out their #8065 twin-strap sandal in size 46 (approx.12-UK), something
I have passionately wanted for years.
And they even have a male looking model there too, nice. Some manufacturers sell them as unisex - Duckfeet, I think Birkenstock did at one time (or still do).

Moose I love your look with the boots and latex leggings. Can I ask where did you get the boots?

Thank you stephanie53. The boots are made by Pleaser Shoes https://pleasershoes.com. The actual boots are the Adore-1020 style. This is a standard 7" heel, 2 3/4" platform boot, which they do in a range of colours. The ones I have are a few years old, the are graded blue on black sole. There are 31 colour ways on the site currently to chose from, this one is all blue https://pleasershoes.com/products/adore-1020ryblm.

Pleaser make a wide range of shoes for all types of humans. I am fortunate and have feet that fit into the top of the standard range. They also make a range of shoes for larger feet in similar styles called Pleaser Pink Label

I have a number of high heels from various manufactures. The Pleaser boots I have are my favourite due to the engineering of the sole. If you look at the picture you will notice that the heel and platform is all one piece. This means that as you walk, the heel is solid and doesn't move in relation to the platform, which gives you confidence in your walk.
Daily, a happy man in a skirt...

To get this thread back onto subject, I bought a cheap pair of Mary Jane shoes on eBay, to try the look with my style.....🤠

I know they are not as flat as the fashion, but I am dealing with my own style rules....🤠

Not very comfortable and the buckles are fake. They came separate in a bag, so you can fit them yourself to the velcro strap. You get what you pay for in shoes, but are OK to try a look out.
