A few things about ME

I am excited to have started my first Blog. I am looking forward
to learning new things. I will continue to work hard on bringing as much new
material as I can to this topic.

I welcome all people to view and follow my blog. I also invite
everyone to comment and share their pictures & experiences with High heels.
I ask for all to please be respectful to everyone here. It is ok to disagree,
but there is no need to be rude.

Some personal information about me.

-I am male

-I do wear high heels publicly

-I am married

-My wife is very supportive of my preference. She has purchased a
few of my shoes I currently own. Being a male wearing female designed footwear,
it is tough to find well fitting shoes.

-My wife had nearing 400 pairs of heels until recent. (Went through
them and found some to no longer fit the best. They are being placed on eBay
soon) She is now down under 200 pairs.

I own about 200 pairs of High Heels and continue to obtain more. I
have a very good sense of sizing for several manufacturers and styles of shoes.
I do a lot of trial and error by purchasing shoes to try on at home and
determine if they are a good fit.

Some personal preferences of mine are as follows. I do not like
flats. I do have 2 pair. I use them as slippers around the house. This seems to
be the only good use for them. Heels to me are not lower than 4 inches in
height. Less than that are for jogging. πŸ˜‰ I also am not a boot fan. I would
prefer to see high heel boots over anything flat but shoes are my desire. I do
have a few pairs of boots, I am trying to expand my likings, but it is tough.

Further beyond the reach of shoes, I also like to wear cloths
design for females. I do not classify myself as a cross dresser, but more of a
fashion hunter. Men’s attire is so boring I have a hard time with lots of it.

I would like to address one question of the several I have been
asked;

“Do you feel less of a man wearing women’s
cloths?”

Answer is NO. The lines of masculinity and femininity are drawn by
our up-bringing. We can change this as we feel it pertains to ourselves. I do
not see how wearing an article of clothing designed and marketed for a female
dictates what or who I am as a person. I feel I am able to make decisions about
what I feel dictates these lines and where they are drawn. Personally I do not
find these lines to be solid or permanent in any way. It is certainly up to
anyone who chooses, to decide on where to place them. If they are not where somebody
likes them, I feel they need to understand the world is not all about them.
Some people may find things much more acceptable than others would and they
should accept that the choices made by others are for others. No threats are
made or implied by this.

      • Oh yes, I will be visiting! I actually just officially added you to my blogroll (and I don’t usually update it lol)…so congrats and definitely keep it up! πŸ™‚

        PS- Thanks for subscribing too btw!

        PSS- If you’re able to add my blog link badge (“I Heart Style by Meli”) to your page, I have the html info on the right column that can be copied/pasted. Thanks for spreading the blog love! πŸ˜‰

        xo, Meli

  1. Thanks for subscribing to me…I see that me and you frequent the same blogs too. We seem to have a lot in common.

    BTW, I think I am developing a slight fetish in taking pictures of me with heels! Ha! They just make you feel so different.

    I think it is so awesome that your married and your wife supports you. Real love has no boundaries!

    • Thank you for the wonderful support. I say keep taking those pictures… I would love to see them. I really like fashion and enjoy seeing what people do with their vision. I cannot agree more with your assessment on heels making you feel different. It is such a unique feeling & is not describable with words… I must encourage you more on the pictures, post them!!! Show off those fantastic feet, legs and everything connected, on display in high heels!!! See you soon πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for the support. I agree, I think heels are a wonderful part of fashion. They have such a powerful position in that world as well as many others. (Naughty stuff) πŸ˜‰
      I am very happy you stopped by. Please do so often. πŸ˜‰

  2. Great shoes! And yes, if women can wear male perfumes (and many other things… think of a century ago, women didn’t wear pants, only dresses and skirts, so… haven’t women “stolen” clothing items from men? ), so can men wear whatever they want, in fact. Fashion is not a dictatorship. You are right, we should wear what pleases us.
    And your pedicure is awesome! (I just felt “approved”, cause I own around 450 pairs of shoes. Good to see someone else – from the “normal” world, not Hollywood actresses – did too, cause you said your wife had 400 up to a short period of time ago!)
    Good job!

    • Thank you for the compliment on my shoes, Pedi and your wonderful support for my choice. I agree things have been rather relaxed for the female gender to wear whatever they want without ridicule. It has also been less than acceptable for men to wear much of anything out of the norm. I still get nervous in public in heels. People have such a strong uneasy reaction when they observe me.
      You are very “Approved” with your collection. Nothing wrong with that!!!
      Please visit often. πŸ˜‰

  3. You certainly have a better (and fabulous) shoe collection than most people! It takes a lot of courage to do things that are not considered “normal” by our society. A huge aspect of living a fulfilling life is to be authentic. If wearing heels and female’s clothing, as a male, allows you to confidently express your true self, than do it! There will always be people who are judgmental, but I believe it is done out of fear and lack of understanding. You can’t please everyone so reserve that energy for the people and things that matter. You’re very lucky to have a wife (and hopefully others) who are supportive and encouraging! It’s so important while swimming against the tide.

  4. You are so lucky to have such beautiful legs! Wow! Men look SMASHING in heels and it’s a shame more guys don’t take advantage of the look. For the longest time, men dressed as fancily as the ladies did, but you are right about men’s fashion being relatively dull these days. Kudos to you for kicking men’s fashion back up a notch!

    • Thank you for the kind words. I have heard compliments on my legs in the past a few times. I appreciate you agreeing with my perspective.
      I look forward to more visits from you. πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for stopping by and leaving a comment. Please do so often. I am looking to get an update soon. I was out of town for a long period of time. I have great things coming so again, please stop by again soon. πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for stopping by and commenting. I would agree with your husbands assessments completely. I also have some female underpants. They are certainly a comfortable item as are many others. πŸ˜‰
      Please stop by again, I enjoy the feedback. πŸ˜‰

  5. I am pleased to find another man that enjoys women’s heels as much as I do . Then to put all the great pictures on a blog….way to go. I wear a size 12 women’s and have about 180 pairs of heels myself . The platform peep toe styles are more what I purchase . I do a lot of shopping at the Zappo’s outlet just south of Louisville Kentucky they are great to deal with. My wife loves my heels and she gets her purse collection. That’s a sweet deal for me especially when it’s BoGo at Payless .

    When my wife and I go out she helps me pick out the best outfit to match the heels I plan to wear. Most of the time it’s feminine attire or totally cross-dressed. I am happy either way. Having 3 brothers and 3 sisters and me in the middle gender lines were not an issue when we were younger. My sisters hunt and fish as do I and they taught me to walk in heels. I just never stopped walking in heels like my brothers did .

    If you know of any one looking for women’s size 11 or 11 1/2 please let me know. I have quite few pair I would like to see go to a good home. This is part of the trial and error phase I went though.

    Thanks and keep up the great work!

    • I appreciate you stopping by and giving this wonderful comment.
      I am glad you have obtained a fashion for yourself and a woman very willing to join you in your desires.

      Please stop by often. If you have a website with pictures of your size 11 and 11.5 shoes, I would be willing to look at the.
      See you again in the future. πŸ˜‰

  6. Super interesting blog!! Keep it up I would like to keep reading!!
    I have two blogs. The fist one is about how I like to redesign old shoes (and stuff, but mostly shoes) to make them look like new (http://redesignsbyharuharu.wordpress.com/) and in the other blog I just started to write reviews for shoes (https://thelifeofadaydreamer.wordpress.com/). You are welcome to check them out and I will love if you commented on my redesigns. πŸ™‚

  7. Hi, just came across your blog. Good on you for doing what you like. I’m a like minded guy when it comes to the desire to wear what I want regardless of what side of the gender lines it came from. Our taste in women’s footwear is quite different but the desire seems to be the same. I know you said you hate flats but I’m a flats guy. But like you openly in public.

    Thanks for sharing. πŸ™‚

    • Brian,
      Thank you for stopping by and viewing my blog. I am happy to hear of your thoughts being of similar desire. I would like to elaborate on my view of flats; I have found a use for them. I wear them as slippers around the house. πŸ˜‰ I certainly do not take away from the personal liking’s of others. I say if you like what you like, than that is perfect.
      I appreciate the comments and hope to see you again in the future.

      • Sorry I should elaborate to. I love high heels, I own about 60 pairs. But I don’t feel comfortable enough to wear them in public. Maybe if I could walk better in them I would. I do wear some small wedge heel boots out in public but I feel best when I wear my flats.

      • I can understand the need for feeling comfortable in heels. The confidence in walking in them is certainly a big part. Practice is important. encourage you to at least try to gain some confidence by doing small things in heels. Get used to the everyday actions you may encounter in public. πŸ˜‰

  8. Hi
    I just discovered your blog and it is awsome. I to am a male that loves high heels, and for awhile I had close to 100 pairs then I purged them and now only have 3 pairs. I recently remarried and my wife was not to sure about it so I backed off. I was wearing heels in public most of the time, including work and never got any negitive reaction. I also love getting pedicures and my new wife and I go get them togther but she is not real cool yet with me getting color but I am working on her.
    Keep up the great work it’s nice to see photos of a regular guy wearing heels instead of some of the clownish photos that are on the net.
    Billy

    • Billy,
      Thank you for stopping by. I appreciate the comments.
      i understand your position with the Mrs. I also have some struggles with that. I have been getting my nails done for over 2.5 years. That was a little dicey in the beginning but has become more acceptable. Getting out in public in heels has been a bigger challenge. Lately it has been improving significantly. The concern was always other people and the opinions formed. Once while shopping, we encountered a guy who worked in a shoe store, openly wearing high heels. We got to talking and the Mrs. asked him how he deals with others and the odd looks. He responded with “If they have an issue with it, it is there problem.” Since than she has adopted that perspective and has been doing much better with things. She has never minded me wearing heels; it has always been people making a bigger deal out of it than need be.
      Hope to see you again. Bring the Mrs. next time. πŸ˜‰

  9. I kind of love heels, but totally can’t walk in them lol.. anyway, I couldn’t find a way to contact you on here, but I was thinking if you wanted to guest post in our fashion & style section, we could link it back here for ya. Let me know πŸ™‚

    • I appreciate the visit. I would love to guest post. Feel free to let me know how to do that. I will email you for the information.

      On the other note, you can walk in high heels. A little practice is where we need to start. A couple tips and you will be well on your way. πŸ˜‰
      Thank you for the comments and the invite. πŸ˜‰

    • Thank you for the great comment and wonderful support. I do love high heels and am happy to say I have been going out in them more frequently as of recent. The wonderful support I have been getting from others has been phenomenal. PLease visit again and often. πŸ˜‰

  10. i just discovered your blog. i’m intrigued by it. you really do have great legs and awesome taste in shoes. i also applaud you for not only wearing them but for also painting your nails and making the whole “package” as pretty and appealing as possible. had i not read your little bio, i would have immediately assumed this was a woman’s blog! very cool!

    • Mark,
      I appreciate the compliments and the visit. I welcome all positive commentary.
      I have tried to make sure I express the fact I am male. I do not intend to mislead people. I understand there those in the world who appreciate the look and appeal to great legs feet and shoes and also prefer to know it is on a female or male, depending on their personal interest.
      Thank you for stopping by and feel free to do so often. πŸ™‚

  11. I admire your perception that fashion is genderless and the only rule that can (and should!) apply is styling-improving your natural beauty, no matter what clothes, accessories or shoes you’re using. Being able to do that is a prove of civilization.
    And also I’m impressed by your (and your wife’s) vast shoes collection, wow! I own about 50-60 pairs of shoes and I already feel that they are too many… and they take a lot of space.
    Maybe you should take pictures showing us the entire outfit, not only the shoes. I’m sure that being “under the guidance” of a woman (your wife), you’ve learnt how to dress with style. In my case, my wife helped me A LOT.
    Thanks! Cheers,

    • I appreciate the comments and for the visit. I have thought about picturing the entire outfit. I might have to start doing that.
      Thank you for the positive vote for confidence. I always need it.
      Hope to see you again in the future. πŸ˜‰

    • It is very cool how you can do those things.
      I appreciate you stopping by and commenting. If the time arises, I will take you up on your offer.
      Thank you and see you again soon. πŸ˜‰

  12. Good blog. I, too, am a male that wears heels in public. However, I only wear high heeled boots with jeans, so therefore I only wear them in the cooler months. Usually it’s a chunkier heel – I haven’t mustered the courage to try the stillettos in public yet.

    • I can understand the confidence or “courage” as you explained, to wear something more intended for the female foot. It is a tough thing even for me at this time. I have gotten better at it for sure. I wore my first pair of sandals out just last weekend. It was a great experience but I was certainly more nervous than I have been previously wearing fuller shoes. As I also get Mani’s and Pedi’s, when I wear open toes, depending on the pedi at the time, it can really attract attention. I encourage you to do what is comfortable but do not be to fearful of going outside the box for what you want to do. The best thing I have found is to have people with you for support. It may not change much of anything but it makes me feel better. πŸ˜‰
      Thank you for visiting and please stop by again and often. πŸ˜‰

    • I am happy you find my blog pleasing. Recently we reduced the amount of heels we have. Went through the Mrs. and liquidated the ones not fitting as well as they once did. Not sure I have as many to eliminate. I like mine to much. πŸ˜‰
      Please stop by again and often. Thank you for the support. πŸ˜‰

  13. Great blog! I am also a straight man who loves high heels, nail polish and “women’s” attire. Additionally I enjoy make-up. I knew I loved them in middle school, but only in the last few years have I become confident enough to wear them often in public and around friends/family. The more I do it, the better I feel. Not just in the sense of confidence, but also as a person. I’m so much happier now that I am not pretending to be someone I’m not.

    I’m around 100 pairs of heels, wedges and boots. I get a bit nervous when wearing heels out and about, but the more I do it the easier it gets. I’m working towards wearing my stilettos in public. I feel comfortable in my thicker heels currently. Once I learned that other people are waiting for you to make the first reaction, wearing heels became easier in public settings. When you present yourself with confidence and own your heels, they will respect you (for the most part) and they’ll feel more comfortable striking up conversations about your style. I’ve had some awesome conversations with people because of my heels, polish and/or style.

    One of my favorite outings was wearing a pair of patent black/white 3″ oxfords for a wedding with a 1950s theme. I paired them with dark skinny jeans, a black & white polka dot button up shirt and a classic black blazer. Everyone said I looked smashing, guys and gals. The best part was when my buddy who got married said my confidence made him feel like he could just be himself too!

    Keep rockin’ those shoes! Soon enough you’ll feel better about wearing some cute outfits too. And last, but not least, thanks for being a public inspiration for others. It takes a lot of balls to put yourself out there!

    • Josh I am happy to hear you are in the public eye as well with our heels. Some day I might get to some more daring outfits as well. I have been wearing heels out almost every weekend for over a year and it has been wonderful.
      I appreciate your comments and the visit. Please stop by often!

    • Mike,
      I am appreciative you find my courage defining. I encourage you to take hold of your confidence and do what you like. I still feel nervous from time to time going in public with heels on. I have found good support in my wife and others around me. If you can pull that from those around you it would be helpful.
      I hope you are able to someday wear your desired fashions. Best of luck.
      Thank you for the kind words. Stop by again. πŸ˜‰

  14. 1. Love that you’re all about being yourself! Long live self expression

  16. You just inspired me to go out and wear heels. It’s hard for me to walk in them for too long. its sad actually. haha Your blog sounds great! keep it up.

  19. By “googeling” I found that blog. What a great site! Thanks for sharing your thoughts, opinions and pics with us. It is always nice to see and read, that there are a lot men, who like to wear high heeled shoes, because of fashion and equal rights.
    This is what I am doing too. For that purpose I established the German Forum “Men on high heels/ MΓ€nner auf hohen AbsΓ€tzen”, to share experiences, ideas, problems and questions among us. Maybe you like to take a look at it. Kind regards and best wishes!

    • I am glad to hear I was found on google! πŸ˜‰ Thank you for the kind words and for stopping by. I took a quick glance at your site and will take a deeper look. Thank you again. πŸ˜‰

  20. Hey, I have nominated you for the Liebster Award. See my blog for the details. Here are your questions. Congratulations! )

    You can copy the award picture from my page too:

    Here are your ten questions from me, PlungingSilk
    1. What inspired you to begin blogging?

    2. North or South?

    3. Favorite color?

    4. Top or bottom?

    8. What celebrity inspires you? Be it artist, photographer, singer, actor, etc….

    9. Country or rock music?

    10. Favorite fashion designer?

    Thank you

    • I enjoy the kind comments. I am very proud of myself in that respect as well. I suspect your question is being asked in a comedic way… πŸ˜‰ but in the event an answer is desired, here you go:
      I feel heels are not uncomfortable generally. They should not be and if they are it is because they are a poor fit and one should not be wearing them. πŸ˜‰ Thank you for stopping by and I welcome you in the future. πŸ˜‰

  21. Hi, i have just found your blog. Everyone should be able ro wear heels if they wish without predjudice. I wear heels as often as i can but i do not have a supporting wife as you do. What do you wear with your heels? I havent found any pics which show the whole you. I like an androgynous look so dressed as male with say skinny jeans and heels. I like ankle boots and one pair of my favorites have a stiletro heel. Just bought a nice pair of heels with a 5″ stiletro heel and small platform court shoes ( pumps) got them for $15.00. They are a wee bit snug but they need to be otherwise it is easy to step out of them. Keep up your blogs and i look forward to seeing more. Where in this world do you live? I live in mew zealand

    • I appreciate you finding my blog and finding interest. I am lucky to have someone not concerned with the lines made about femininity or masculinity. When I go out I have worn heels with shorts on the boat, sweats when running around and jeans for dinner. In the house I will wear skirts or leggings. I do get some shots of my outfit on my twitter page but I often fail at that on my blog. Keep up your heel wearing and I look forward to seeing you again. Thank you πŸ˜‰

  22. Hi! No wonder you said all your heel fit great πŸ˜€ Sorry it took me a while to get back to blog reading, but it’s been a rough couple months. Now that I finally got the chance, I’m so glad I stopped by yours. You still won’t catch me wearing heels too often around small running children, but, I can learn a lot from you!

    • I am always happy to see wonderful comments such as this. I appreciate you stopping by and I certainly can understand time being short. I encourage you to visit often and feel free to leave further comments (As time allows). Look forward to seeing you again. Thank you. πŸ˜‰

  23. I thought you were a woman at first. You wear the heels well. Upon looking at the pics, I needed a quick release. Thanks for sharing.

    • Not sure what to say other than I appreciate the compliment and hope you can continue to appreciate my abilities and skills of wearing heels.
      Thank you for stopping by. πŸ˜‰

    • I appreciate you stopping by. These are a size 11, by Steve Madden; as I am not sure there is a single name for them but I will refer to them as sandals, or perhaps a wood platformed heel. I hope this helps. Thank you for the comment and see you again soon. πŸ˜‰

  24. Good evening,

    I am French from Paris .
