    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.

    I almost haven't bought any shoes for ages. What I should say is, I haven't bought any to keep/wear recently. These proved irresistible: Can't see a time or place where I could or would wear them, but as I said, irresistible. Missed these from Zara in my size: I also bought some flat stretch knee boots from Zara to try at home. The shafts were loose, despite being a stretch material.... Not sure why I keep torturing myself even trying to find some boots with shafts something close to the size of my thin legs. The eternal optimist may be?

    I can't add much to this discussion, but do suggest that 'graceful' and competent heel-wearing is not directly linked to gender or build. We have all seen a variety of women (and a few men) whose ability - or lack of it - to walk in public in heels is all-too-evident. This man seems to me to be perfectly competent in his Omano boots (allegedly 6" heels but I think a little less than that). He has other videos of him in similarly high heels and is obviously well-practised, but scarcely unique.

    If you want to get his attention, PM him him directly. It's not a case of waking him/them up, they are busy elsewhere and as this threat clearly indicates, there's not much going on that draws attention. I have to say, your input is greatly appreciated, in trying to change that.

    I have just returned from a week's holiday in southern Turkey. In the hotel foyer, next to the small souvenir shop, there was the pictured archway with a sign displayed each side. I initially thought that this led to other shops (for tobacco and shoes) but it proved to be the entrance to the men's and women's WCs. As a reformed pipe-smoker who has a modest interest in stiletto heels, I found it difficult to decide which WC I should use! All guests adopted casual dress throughout the day and evening, in the hotel or outside. Shorts and flip-flops (or equivalents) were almost universal everywhere, with just a few low wedges in evidence. I reckon that, if Turkey imposed a 'Tourist Flip-flop Tax' of 10 lira (about £1.20 or $1.60), its economic woes would be solved within a month or two!

    This is the first chapter of ‘The Puffer Chronicle’ – an account of my modest involvement with high heels over the years. If you have any questions or constructive comments, I will do my best to answer them, but please understand that certain things in my life must remain confidential. Looking back over what is now quite a long life, I cannot really remember how or when my interest in high heels (or, indeed, women’s footwear in general) truly started. It probably stemmed from an accumulation of minor experiences and observations gained as a young boy. I had a growing perception that there were distinct differences between ‘boys’ and ‘girls’ and how they normally dressed and behaved. I realised that some ‘girly’ things were not permitted for boys (or men) and were therefore somewhat mysterious and, in their way, both attractive and enticing. Certainly, there was little to stimulate interest at my home in West Middlesex in the 1950s. I had a younger brother (but no sisters) and a father who was distinctly old-fashioned in dress – and usually in outlook too. My mother (aged 30 when I was born) never had any aspirations to a glamourous or even particularly fashionable appearance. She was something of a ‘free spirit’ and could well have been a hippy if they had been invented when she was a teenager. She rarely wore footwear with any sort of heel (and never above about 2” or stilettos) but liked flat sandals, although here again they were generally more frumpy than smart. I don’t recall any relatives, family friends or neighbours whose clothing or footwear was particularly elegant either – but we were still emerging from the austerity and rationing that followed the Second World War. The one exception was a cousin by marriage (aged around 30 in the late 1950s) who was fairly short and invariably wore 4” stilettos; a pleasure to see when we met perhaps once a year. Of course, there were sightings in the wider world – this was the start of the ‘rock-and-roll era’ and plenty of young (and not so young) women were embracing its typical fashions. Tight or full skirts, beehive hair and, of course, pointed stilettos were everyday-wear for many. I started at infants school in the autumn of 1953. Unusually, my teacher for all three years there ‘moved up’ with my class. She had a kindly and effective influence (and imparted in me much valuable knowledge, well-remembered to this day) and we were all fond of her. As she had at least one daughter living abroad, she was probably in her early 40s and was tidy and presentable rather than intentionally smart in what she wore. The other teachers - all women - dressed similarly, although the headmistress was always well-groomed and usually wore low-heeled suede court shoes. (It was rare to find any teacher, male or female, whom one might consider to be ‘well-dressed’ – and my observations suggest that nothing much has changed in 60 years.) I had to go into the local hospital to have my tonsils removed, and in fact was there on my seventh birthday - so got an extra helping of jelly and ice cream. The nurses were talking about Bill Haley and Elvis Presley, then relatively unknown but soon to become famous. Those were the days when nurses wore ‘proper’ uniforms, with seamed stockings. Matron and some of the other senior nursing staff looked very elegant in their close-fitting dresses with starched aprons and caps, and wore high-heeled ‘Oxford’ lace-ups - a style that I will always associate with ‘women in uniform’. Back at school, my perception of my teacher changed dramatically towards the end of my final year in her class in 1956. We had some sort of formal event at the school – probably a visit by the mayor or some such – and she dressed quite elegantly for the occasion. I was blown away by the sight of her black patent court shoes, with pointed toes and stiletto heels that must have been close to 4.5”, which she wore effortlessly. Alas, there was no repetition and mediocrity reigned for the rest of my time there, with little change following my 'promotion' to the junior school, as I shall describe in the next instalment.

    As a fellow 'older diesel' car driver who lives near enough to central London to consider driving into or through it, I share your well-stated concerns. My trips nowadays are rare enough for the impact not to be of great concern, but I do resent very much the effective 'ban' now imposed - and which will get much worse in less than two years when the entire area within the North and South Circular Roads becomes the 24-hour charging zone. The latter will concern me more as it will effectively (very effectively) stop me from venturing briefly into, say, Lewisham, or Hammersmith or some such non-central area to pick up or drop off some large or heavy item that I could only transport in my car. I will not pay a ransom for doing this. And what of the residents or businesses located there? I know they have some temporary concessions, but they will (eventually) have to change their vehicles or face every-day swingeing costs - in the region of £100 per day for goods vehicles. That must mean that anyone living within the North/South Circulars and buying something (a fridge, a settee, a garden shed) that has to be delivered by road from a distance will likely have to pay a huge premium for its delivery, even if the same vehicle can make several drops in the same trip. Likewise, who will buy from businesses there, especially if collection is needed? I do however use the train, underground and buses to get into and around London; they pose no problems in navigation etc for me. I agree that they are not particularly cheap, but the true cost comparison with driving is not necessarily unfavourable, unless two or three are travelling together. The biggest drawback of public transport is the limitation on what can be conveniently carried (or comfortably/discreetly worn). The new charges are really a con, or at least primarily a revenue-raiser. They apply the typical British rule that one is totally prohibited, for the alleged benefit of the environment and civilisation, of doing anything useful, convenient or pleasurable - unless of course one is prepared to pay through the nose for it, when it suddenly becomes permitted - welcome even. (Rather like smoking, isn't it?)

    Yes, Not was the word that should have been in there. I have corrected it. I agree - it is great that girls have more openings and are not being pigeonholed but boys need the same latitude and there seems to be little movement in that direction.

    I assume you meant '... not a fetish thing ...'? I think you are right about girls, much more than boys, being in the 'genderless' spotlight. All part of the female striving for equality. Nothing wrong with that, if it cuts both ways - but men are still denied much that is supposedly reserved for women, including certain clothing I could mention.

    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.

    Well, I truly admire your concern for your grandson's well being and emotional health. This is a tough situation for sure. But, I feel that if your Grandson has a possible interest in heels, he will discover them sooner or later, even without knowing you enjoy wearing them. So, perhaps it is better to talk with him now, kind of "feel him out" on his opinion of you wearing heels. It surely sounds like your Grandson has been raised correctly and would accept your heeling fully, even if he is not interested in wearing them. But, in case he is/might be interested in wearing heels, perhaps you can help him by exposing him to your heels now, so this will help him to feel that it is "OK", and he will be accepted and encouraged by family members. I spent so many years trying to "hide from myself", crippling myself with self hatred, I just hope I meet a young guy someday that I can help avoid wasting so many valuable years. You are not exposing your Grandson to anything "bad", you would not be giving him his first cigarette or beer. I know that you only want the best for him though, and I respect you greatly for that....Don

    Great job DWW, kids are more durable than we believe. It is best to expose them to your heels when they are very young. Like you say, they will ask a few questions but that is fine. They will grow up knowing that men in heels is perfectly normal, and won't be bothered by any other kid's (or stupid adult) comments..........

    There was recently a late 15th century skeleton found in a construction site near the Thames, still wearing the pair of thigh boots he had been wearing when, apparently, he drowned. It is believed, from evidence provided by his skeleton, that he was either a fisherman or a sailor. Several pair of thigh boots were also found in the wreck of the Mary Rose. The 15th century thigh boots found on that skeleton are the oldest thigh boots known. Although simply made, and unadorned, they would have been expensive at the time. At that point in time - late 15th century - boots in general were fairly rare. They came into their own over the next century or so.

    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.

    If I thought it would achieve anything, I might be tempted. But realistically, the best option is Twitter (Zara must have an account) and I would need to open or reopen an account to do that, when I really don't want to waste any more time on them. I've put the unpleasant experience behind me, and any possibility I might buy from them again. And there we have a good reason to avoid in-store purchases, and returns. A protracted returns procedure the very reason I gave up buying from House of Fraser, which was just as effective as Zara seems to be during the sale period. As a reminder, I had returned some shoes to HoF Oxford Street bought online. I saved them the return carriage cost by making a personal delivery. Showing the delivery note with all my details, wasn't enough for the supervisor to put the money back in my account, I had to present the c/c too. Not usually required these days, but it was part of their procedure. Not only did I have to present my card, but I also had to 'sign in' the receipt. The supervisor didn't like my signature compared to the signature on the card. A heavy verbal debate ensued. My stand was that I was returning goods, not taking them. Would a crook return products (I was entitled to return as the delivery note confirmed). If I returned the goods by post, HoF would have pay carriage, and neither card nor signature would accompany the goods being returned. Worse still, during that time I could sign up for 'instant' store credit, and walk out with £200+ worth of goods based on providing a name and address. The supervisor conceded this too. I got a credit on my card. A day later I got a phone call from the store General Manager, who was apologetic and agreed all my points regarding the return procedure. But it wouldn't be changing. Well, how did that work out for the group of stores? A painless returns policy 'made' Marks and Spencer. That policy took hundreds and hundreds of pounds off me over the years. Many retailers realised it gave customers comfort when buying, so have copied their procedure. John Lewis and Screwfix being obvious nominees for the 'copycat' awards. Both offer pain free returns, both are very busy businesses. That isn't their only attraction of course, but pain free returns mean customers will take products away to try (JL) or buy more than they need (SF) knowing surplus can be easily returned. Not that everything bought with a view to returning if necessary, gets returned. A side benefit of the 'easy returns' is that the returns window is sometimes missed. Been there, done that. New Look started to make life difficult for buyers, when they decided any discounted stock could not be returned. Anything you bought in a sale, had to be kept - unless bought online of course. Idiotic? Same was true of Select. No in-store purchases at all could be refunded, only store credit was offered instead, unless you bought online!! Like New Look, Select is another retail group shrinking fast with high street shops just disappearing. Of course Select quality was never great anyway. A pair of their shoes I wore for the first time, all but fell to pieces. (Written up elsewhere.) I like to support the high street, and loathe the Amazon business model, I don't see why a high street should offer a lower service than one I get online. Just doesn't add up to me. But 30 minutes queuing for returns to be processed - not acceptable Zara.

    ... and which reminds me of a Plod encounter too: Some 35 years ago, I was travelling into deepest Lincolnshire on an unfamiliar road and had just come over the brow of a hill with a long slope down to the junction where I needed to turn right. A police car was parked across the major road at the junction and a copper with his back to me was bending down, speaking to its driver. There was obviously some problem or road closure so I gently coasted down the hill until I almost reached the copper, who only then turned round and walked the few paces to my open driver's window. Despite the fact that there were no signs out, he had not given any prior signal and I had pulled-up quite correctly, he enquired why I had failed to stop earlier 'as directed'. I pointed out to him, politely, that waving his arse in my general direction did not constitute any road traffic instruction known to the Highway Code. After a penetrating stare, he told me that there had been an accident in the major road ahead but I was OK to take the right turn I wanted. I proceeded accordingly and he resumed his arse waving.

    Not seen one, or heard of one locally (meaning in the UK). I think they might have become less 'popular' generally, (less interesting) when men started to compete, and win. I have here some high-top plimsoll/trainers with a 4" heel. I would take on anyone while wearing those and potentially win because they are like wearing trainers. I don't know whether they would be outlawed in these runs, but wearing them would provide no handicap to my running speed at all. Six inch heels with a 1" or 2" platform, might as well tie my ankles together for all the speed I'd manage. I could barely walk in them, much less run.

    As distinct from 'pumps for his feet' presumably? (Ronnie Barker in 'Four Candles' made the same error!) As to the LAM, I have just perused the website: http://londonalternativemarket.com/general-info/ First Sunday of each month in Leadenhall Street, EC3, which means that free street parking should be reasonably available for anyone wanting to go by car (the City is very quiet at weekends, but keep away from Petticoat Lane area as parking there is still restricted on Sundays). Entry before 2pm is £6, entry after that £7. Whilst there is a claimed wide range of exhibits, allegedly including footwear, I can see little that is specific. My gut feeling is that most of the emphasis is on activities/interests/lifestyles/products that would be of little or no appeal to me and scarcely justify the trouble and expense of attending. I did once (about 20 years ago) attend what may well have been the same event in London; I found little of interest (and a fair number of rather unpalatable 'exhibits') and left after an hour or so.) However, I am happy to be proved wrong and might be willing to attend, especially if some of us were to meet there socially. Certainly, I agree that the LAM could provide a venue for such a get-together, but would there be any privacy for us - I guess not unless we hired a private room or similar? In which case, why not book such a room elsewhere? All in all, something to think about, as you say.

    I can only say going to a heel meet boosts ones confidance a hell of a lot, and lets you know you are not the only one in the world that likes to wear heels. So far I have been to three first one in Cambridge May 2002, second Miller in London 2007 meet loads of guys from overseas, and was a world heel meet, third was also at the Miller London 2009, and I enjoyed all three, but I have also meet guys locally, you know one to one, with no problems at all.

    Of all the people I could be talking about, you would not be one of them. I'm aware through experience, you would attend a social gathering, (as might "Heels") with we three having met up together, many times in the past. In fact, you were one of the two people that waved me toward the (hidden) entrance door of the Miller pub back in 2008 - if I remember correctly. The 'Meet' in 2008 was really very special because it had an international flavour - including the bar maid it would seem! Here's some background to that time .... Until a few weeks before the big meet (there was a dinner together before that with about 9 attendees) several of us had no knowledge of men wearing heels as a group. Certainly in my case, I was almost overwhelmed to find my interest (straight man, practically non-TV) wasn't alone in the world with regard to my finding pleasure in wearing a heel. Of course I knew other men wore heels, I'd seen them years before, but these were for the most part, TV/TS or drag. Otherwise 'regular' men wearing heels because they could, and liked them, was 'news' to me? There was at least one person (who attended the meal on the 14th), made mention that his interest in wearing heels, and feeling isolated because of it, had produced some strong mental health issues. (Thinking of self-destruction.) His contact with the group, and attendance which allowed regular conversation with other like minded people, enabled him to 'normalise' his interest, rather than let it isolate him. His attendance, quite literally changed his life. To be honest, it also changed mine. I got involved with the group as a whole, and did my bit to help and support others who possibly didn't have my confidence to start with. Once I had spent some time out in the real world in a heel during daylight in a non-fetish situation, and having established my interest wasn't unacceptably unique, I became a great evangeliser for the cause. Not only "talking the talk", but quite literally, "walking the walk" (in heels). Part of my evangelising activity was to encourage social activity via meetings. Several of us met from time to time. Travelling to a central place, typically London, takes time, effort, and there's cost. Add that everyone involved gets older with every day, become less enthusiastic for venturing out breaking normal routines, it's not hard to understand how 5 or more people might struggle to find matching energy levels/time and money for a group meeting. I've mentioned confidence levels, but there is possibly another deeper psychological reason for what appears to be a reluctance to 'share'. Let me propose that many men take their pleasure from a heel, through sexual self-gratification. Many of those 'many' will have solitary experiences, that could never be shared with their partner, assuming their interest in heels doesn't prevent them having a partner to start with.... These men are likely used to keeping their interest in wearing a heel, in 'the closet'. Might be they are members of forums or BB's where they read about and share experiences, but their real world experience of wearing high heels amongst other men, is a big fat zero. How important to the lives of these men who maybe spend 10 minutes a week in heels, would meeting other men who are into wearing wearing heels, likely be? These men might spend 10 minutes every day, maybe 30 minutes, maybe an hour every day, thinking about heels and when they'll get to put a pair on. But it seems to me, their enthusiasm often never leaves the bedroom, much less is taken out to meet people socially. Believe me, I'd be happy to have this all wrong. I wish it were as simple as; "Can we all meet at xxxxxxxx on DD/MM/YYYY? Who is in?" And 20 people put their hand up to join a gathering. Even somewhere as busy as HHp, the offer of a 'meet' (certainly in the UK) might after a week or two of wrangling over dates and locations, produce two interested people, and one of those might be the person trying to organise the meet.

    These things cost money. If sellers thought they might benefit from promoting their wares, an appearance might get some stock on show, and to try on. At best 30 people (who am I kidding, 10-15) might attend, which isn't enough potential for a seller. I had previously made tentative enquiries some years ago about getting some 'sale or return' stock sent, but all three of the vendors I had in mind back then, no longer trade. (Direct Chinese imports via Ebay put them all out of business.) A model who specialises in wearing high high heels, would cost circa £200 a visit, even if little more than expenses were paid. A venue would be needed. To have dedicated space, would need a flat payment or a guarantee of sales. ("You can have the back room to yourselves free, as long as we take over £150 in sales.") Or some private space for 3 hours, £100. In my mind, the very minimum budget would be £300, and even that figure might prove to be wildly optimistic. Shared amongst 10-15 people? Never going to happen. Even a secluded space, with heel owners bringing their own shoes to show and be tried (on carpet) might cost £10 per person, and that's without refreshments needed like teas/coffees/other. There's also that most men into wearing heels, don't actually want to socialise together. It's a fact. Look at the historic attempts over at HHp. We've had some 'meets' from here in the past, but there's never been more than 5 of us, if I remember correctly. There are of course 'fetish' meets/fairs (or used to be) in London once a month.... Not sure even they have survived.

    Great video, a la film trailer. Hard to fully comprehend how well he walks in the heels as the view point isn't fixed, but probably still walks in them better than I could. Given he's not a size UK8, and more likely a UK10/11 or even larger, they might well be a 6" heel. Hard to know without some reference point. As to the men/women and who walks better in heels, it's a useful point that girls get more practice and that might lead to be them being 'more expert' in a heel. I had in mind the hips joints in a women are potentially different (for baby carrying purposes) and for that reason, could rotate/swivel a little more effectively than men usually do. If there has been medical research that says this is not the case, I'd like to read it. I'm aware that for myself, height makes a difference, and my ability seems to drop off past a certain point. For example, I can walk in a 4" heel like I'm wearing flats. (I'm told from the back, that might not appear to be true as I rotate my backside like a girl does - a girl wearing heels.) Up to around 4.7 inches high, I walk like someone wearing a heel, but not so badly it looks like I can't walk in a heel. Above that, approaching 5 inches, my gait is affected. Now given that 30 years ago I had no problem walking in a 5½ inch heel like I was wearing a 4 inch heel today, it suggests something in me has changed. The obvious is I'm 30 years older, but this must mean there are changes in my bone/muscle/tendon combination that is restricting my ability. Not sex possibly that makes a difference, but some other aspect or aspects. Bottom line for me, I've always been able to walk comfortably in heels. It's a great feeling to be in them. I hope my weary body allows me to continue for some time yet.

    I think it is perfectly possible to walk gracefully in heels without adopting any overtly feminine gait. In fact I think a man who adopted such a gait would be rather less likely to walk gracefully in heels, since it would be unnatural. The human body male or female was not designed to wear heels. It is purely an acquired skill. We are more accustomed to seeing that skill in women, and thus expressed with a feminine gait, and so we naturally associate that grace with femininity.

    There were once again, some high heels to be seen on the 2018 series, but the director must have been told to avoid transmitting (where possible) anything that could be reproduced on sites like this. What used to be wide shots with zooming into the heel wearers, almost stopped altogether. More often than not, women in heels sat behind the man, even if this meant the celeb being hidden by a dancer. I pretty much decided early on, following the series wasn't going to be worthwhile. Zoe has also started to wear shoes with slightly lower heel. (She's not getting any younger.) That's not to say heels weren't evident, but trying to get screen shots would not have been as worthwhile as it once used to be.

    I had such an opportunity, but the shoes didn't fit very well, sadly. While the flared leg has some potential, the absence of any toe showing is a give-away. In fact to be truly discreet, a high heeled shoe worn by a man must be 2-3 inches longer than usual. I have some very wearable shoes (easy to wear) I could walk around in all day. Slightly flared (bootleg) jeans or trousers, hide whatever needed hiding of the heel, bit no toe showing, draws attention. Less, is not more in this instance. I have some very nice ankle points with pointed toe, that fit very well. They are half-way toward a cowboy boot, but the absence of my foot showing, suggests I am wearing a heel, and draws attention for that reason. The appearance at floor level, is of a girl wearing high heels and just a bit of her toe showing at the bottom of her trousers. Even people not into heels, recognise that look.

    In your previous post, you referred to No. 1 grandson and (later) No. 2 grandson. Presumably the latter was a typo! I only have one grandson (so far) and he is 15 months! So, a little young to be interested in shoes of any type, but his mum does have a few pairs of heels so he may grow up in the right way ...! His dad (my son) is not so inclined and as, like me, he is a UK11 or 12, he has a disadvantage there anyway.

    Hi Freddy, I wear them, mostly in private. Chelsea boots with a lower heel are worn to work. 95% of my shoes have the origin in the ladies department of a store. The rest are either designed with an unisex or male appoach. So comming back to your question I wear them and I have a small collection.

    How about these? Very shiny... I picked them up in a local charity shop.

    Similar but not same: Faith Gina courts. These were worn during the evening regularly, some 25 years ago by my current walking companion, when her feet could easily tolerate a high heel. (These days, bunions prevent any slim shoe being worn, and if the bunions didn't prevent them being worn - two duff hips would prevent walking in them anyway.) This pair is still owned by her... There are pictures of these being worn by her, with the model also wearing a very short skirt to further enhance the length of her legs. Even without a heel, I think she was an inch taller than me. That sort of outfit wasn't that unusual back then, but her legs got noticed everywhere we went. I remember people we worked with being shocked at her evening wear. She worked in a finance department, and was better known for her more conservative dress style. Sadly, "prudence" once again compels me to keep the images away from the site, since there are no longer any viewing restrictions. They were great times.
