    Outfit seen in Melbourne.

    I think it's Melbourne based on the facebook posters profile. I should point out that the video is not mine, nor do I know the subject or the commentator. The commentator doesn't seem to approve, but many in todays West would simply shake their head and walk on, and some would be supportive. I have said before that what people wear and how they present themselves is up to them. People should be free to do and say what they wish so long as they don't infringe the rights and freedoms of others. However, society does have expectations, and if you push outside the envelope tooooo far, there are those who will take it upon themselves to push back. Society's norms change slowly, and I would argue that those who push the envelope are the main agent for change. the less stout of heart follow after? This young fellow is apparently attending a pride march. If 10% of western populations are gay, bi, or LGBT of some sort, you could argue that his outfit is really the male equivalent of a girl in hot pants or a mini? Having said that, I think the outfit is more appropriately clubwear than streetwear. So outfit critique, clothes and heels. Over to you.

    "Sky high heels"

    I entirely agree about the hyperbole that seems to attach to any press mention of 'high' heels. Although the Daily Mail, for example, gives fair coverage of heel-related fashion and stories, it does seem incapable of mentioning heels without attaching trite and unnecessary qualifiers. Enough to send my blood pressure 'sky-high'!

    "Sky high heels"

    and the heels aren't even sky high. Well...for some ladies 2 inch is high'it's a matter of perception, |I think.

    "Sky high heels"

    This silly tabloid trend really irks me. Shoes/boots with fairly standard heel heights (barely 4 inches in some cases), being described as "Sky high heels", "Skyscraper heels", "Vertiginous heels" or other stupid term. They are ordinary heels, available to all, found in most high street stores, nothing extreme or noteworthy about them to be honest. Here's a recent example:- https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-6661955/Rachel-McCord-traipses-nude-lingerie-sky-high-heels-outdoor-photo-shoot-LA.html I suppose its a form of Clickbait.

    amazing boots!!

    I just did a polish n brush on those knee boots - quite an improvement. Maybe its a girl thing that they wear lots of shoes, infrequently, and don't actually need to look after them. Blokes tend to be more prone to applying some polish and care to their (leather ones at least) footwear. I wouldn't be surprised if that polish wasn't one of the very few these boots have had in their life.
  10. I was at one point couple of years ago buying Heels from New look online and returning any that didn't fit via my local New Look shop. Well that shop has closed down. I'm not sure about other New Looks shop near me as I haven't checked. Still not bought any heels for some time now but seem to be wearing them more again. So what type of shop has replace New Look, it another clothes shop.
  11. To be honest Mr Fred I have two grandkids, a girl of the age 11, and a boy 7 and to be honest I have worn my heels every time I take them to the shops to buy sweets etc, and to be honest they have never noticed or said anything, but saying that granddaughter did say something about 4 years ago, why are you wearing nannys boots, but that was it, nothing since.

    Also from ebay - these might just be candidates for everyday wear (almost).

    Well I did get some knee high boots of ebay. Quite conservative - about a 2 1/2 inch heel. They are actually quite comfortable.

    Something special

    My opinion? "If now I have an opportunity to wear haute couture and the things that make me feel beautiful, strong, fearless, feminine attractive… even if it was just for me. You cannot please everyone all of the time" Very true. As I said on my first post, I wish everyone could dress, say, and act as they wish so long as it doesn't affect anyone else's rights. Celine is doing just that. I might not like all of her fashion choices, but the point is they are her choices - more power to her.

    I suspect dww thinks you are having a "holier than thou" moment, and trying to justify being "holier than thou" confirms your position. I've explained to you this isn't a critique thread. Never was, never will be. But you are insistent you can say/do whatever you want about my taste in something special. You might well be able to post what you want, be there are consequences to doing that. 1. I will not post anything on this thread ever again. 2. Since my posts are being criticised and I'm finding myself arguing about it, I will abdicate from all communication/posts until March. If I then find myself in a similar position when I return, I will add you to my "ignore" list. I really can't be bothered to participate in a Forum where I have to justify myself. Life is too short. Lastly: Céline Dion, 50, says critics of her slimmer frame should 'leave her alone' as she finally addresses relationship with 'handsome toyboy' Pepe Munoz By REBECCA DAVISON FOR MAILONLINE PUBLISHED: 09:02, 29 January 2019 | UPDATED: 21:33, 29 January 2019 Céline Dion is set to headline the British Summer Time Concert in Hyde Park this year after her 15 year Las Vegas residency came to an end. And the iconic singer, 50, has addressed her 'slimmer figure', iconic sense of style, and those rumours of a relationship with 'toyboy' Pepe Munoz. Talking to The Sun, Céline said her new sense of style (which is incredible) and her slimmer frame has been criticised. +5 Outspoken: Céline Dion, 50, has said that critics of her slimmer fame should 'leave her alone' as she finally addresses her relationship with 'handsome toyboy' Pepe Munoz +5 He's my handsome best friend: Céline addresses rumours that she is now dating 'toyboy' Pepe Munoz, a Spanish backing dancer, who is always by her side as she brands herself 'single' She said: 'If I like it, I don't want to talk about it. Don't bother. Don't take a picture. If you like it, I'll be there. If you don't, leave me alone.' She also told Lorraine: 'It [an interest in fashion] has always been part of me, but the way we used to work before was maybe more conservative. 'If now I have an opportunity to wear haute couture and the things that make me feel beautiful, strong, fearless, feminine attractive… even if it was just for me. You cannot please everyone all of the time.' Well said Celine.

    Please don't be cryptic! Are you agreeing with my view, disagreeing with it or have another opinion?

    Something special

    I will leave it to other members of this board to determine whether: 1. there is a place on what is intended as a 'Heels for men' forum for a topic featuring general female fashion, in all its extremes, selected by the poster on the grounds of being 'special' in some way; 2. if such material is posted, it should be open to comment and criticism on aesthetic or other grounds. In considering the above, it should be remembered that (a) anything posted on H4M is open to comment by others - that is why H4M exists as a forum; (b) public figures in particular invite public comment when they wear or do something; (c) few if any of us here are within the allegedly large bunch of sycophantic followers who hang on to so-called celebrities' every word and deed; (d) there is a difference between fair comment (however critical) and that which is malicious or destructive. I fail to see why these recent exchanges have ruffled feathers in the way they apparently have. Freddy chose some pics of 'fashion' which he considered 'special'; I thought the outfits worn by VB and CD were risible. We are both entitled to our opposing views. And, when I challenged VB's outfit, Freddy agreed that he disliked the boot style and the way her skirt and sweater were being worn, so how was it 'special' apart from being worn by Her Holiness? Moreover, although Freddy says he posts pics of women who 'wear higher heels, or higher than you'd expect to see in everyday life (given age or status)', CD's bootees were very tame in comparison with others has worn so, given the rest of her strange outfit, I could not understand its appeal or relevance to us. I make no claims of expertise in the theory of fashion (as distinct from being a shrewd observer) so, when I ask what is so 'special' about something, it is because I am trying to understand (and perhaps appreciate) some subtlety that I may have missed. So, go on posting what appeals to you by all means, but don't expect it to pass without comment, favourable or not. (And, for the record, I did like the pics of both Kate B and Helen M, both of whom 'filled Freddy's bill' in terms of heels and overall elegance.)

    This is a critique part of the Forum, knock yourself out. "In the flesh" these looked taller, and the heel isn't exactly unpleasant. The real stopper is the price. Even reduced to £120, and assuming they had my size, I doubt I'd be making a purchase. That might change if I worked in an office and could wear these at work. That 4.25" is a very wearable height for my size 8 feet, and I'd like to wear heels for a work day or work week to get the experience of it. Ho-hum.

    I am pleased, as will be others of course, at your contributions and effort you put into this Forum too. However, there is a well known saying that runs something like: "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything." (I might be paraphrasing, but the gist of it is there.) This isn't a thread for critique, that function is found on another section in the Forum - as shown. My hope is/WAS, others would contribute to the Something Special thread with links of images of media they too thought might be considered special. It was never meant to be an opportunity for people to tell me I was mistaken in my view of what I consider special, no more than I would be inclined to disagree with anyone else's viewpoint on what they thought was special. In fact my attitude toward 'negative posting' extends to ignoring several posts in another section of the Forum where critiquing is expected. I really don't like some of the shoes/boots shown, but rather than post something negative about styles others feel attractive, I've written nothing. I know through experience and training, negative posting - especially on matters of taste, leads to members keeping their thoughts to themselves. If you must write that you don't like an image and are compelled to say so, then you must. But please resist the temptation to challenge me on why I thought it 'Special'. These women have tens of millions of followers on social media. Anything they do, and likely everything they do is seen daily by those millions, because their followers are interested in the lives of these women, and the fashion statements they make from time to time. If there's a question to be answered, it's "what are you failing to see, the rest of us can see?" As to continuing with this thread, I think I'm pretty much done with it. If the content is so unpleasant, what's the point? I'm not looking for an answer by the way, as there isn't nor could there be any point.

    Nice boots - if you will permit me to say so! I agree that a longer shaft and a heel higher than the advertised 4.25" would be an improvement.

    Oh dear, Freddy! And me thinking that a topic entitled 'Something Special' would be showing just that and inviting response. (Perhaps the topic should be called 'Seen in Public' or some-such.) You are perfectly entitled to post whatever eccentricities you like (and I don't intend to ignore them) but I see nothing in the rules to preclude criticism, however the topic is labelled. My complaint was about what you (in good faith) shared with us on this occasion, with some sort of implied endorsement, not that you posted it. Your valued support of this board (which I do my best to emulate) does not exempt you from comment on your posts, whether or not this conflicts with your own views. I'm sorry if you think otherwise or that your efforts go unappreciated.

    While out shopping today, I noticed these. Reduced in store to something like £120. The heel is not as high as I would like, but the sort of heel that could be worn all day (if the opportunity arose.) What attracted me to them was the narrow-ish shaft, and small spacing between the lacing eyelets. It suggested the boots could be tightened to fit my very slim legs. Better still if the were higher, and covered calfs.
