I have that exact pair, Osso!
I love them, wear them all the time!

Finally received my back ordered high-arch Birks today. When they say high, they mean it!
I think I'll like them for next summer...
(they were ordered in July!)

@msolga,
I give up.

I am moderately interested in fashion, but it turns out that I cannot stand the culture. (I read the Sartorialist).

So many years with so many fashion editors and following models posing pigeon toed (lolita ville) and so many years with heels getting higher and higher.

I now take it all as sexual posing - obvious - but I'm irritated that this has been the norm for years now.

Now we have Garance in Oxfords. (rolls eyes)

@msolga,
Yeh, I saw that.

They're playing with flat shoes, ever so slightly pigeon toed of course.

Consider me crabby.

I'm sorry, I'm just too sour.

@dadpad,
That was my thought. How can the human foot be forced into a shape like that, without years of foot binding, or other tortures.

And, they are ugly.

Google "Vibram Five Fingers". I just bought my second pair, and my wife and mother-in-law just bought their first pairs.

Buck the trend, find your inner cave-person, and go barefoot (literally and as close as possible with the five fingers)

@roger,
You can see a "normal" shoe shape in there -- it's just crazy-high.

I actually loved that show, I think the shoes were for showmanship (the whole animal/ alien thing) and not expected to actually be worn.

hamburger's late brother had a lot of negative things to say about that when I was a teen - he made sure I did not think that was an attractive trend to follow - he told me it was a signal of weakness

as I think back, he taught me a lot when I wasn't expecting lessons

Luckily I am tall and don't need high heels - I'm the flip flop type on weekends
and sandals for work.

These runway shoes look like hoofs which would fit for an animal theme.
I would hate to wear them, even the models must have been anxious. A slip
in those kind of shoes can result in a nasty fracture.

Oooooooooooh!
These look a lot of fun to run around the streets in!
Apparently they're "party essentials"!

Must have missed this thread the first time around.

As as already been said, the wrong shoe puts the entire body out of alignment.
The best shoes mimic being barefoot with a very flexible sole.

You know what?
I've had various men in my life tell me I looked good while I was wearing high heels. But, they weren't telling me that based on the shoe, it was the entire package.

I would wear heels when I wore dresses, but I haven't put on a dress in 20 years.
Heels with pants?
That is totally not necessary. Even with really great dress pants, you should be able to find fabulous shoes that are either flat or only have a small heel.



I'd like to hear from more men as to their opinion of women wearing heels.

Does it really make that much difference to you?



BTW, these are what a ballet dancers feet look like. Pretty sexy huh?
