what's your opinion?
I think men should wear whatever they want, however, I would never use them, I think they are just for women...

Fetish or fashion?
A little fetish is ok, but the major reason should be fashion. Then heels on men can look great!

I think it all depends. I don't like stilettos but I think something chunky or like a wedge is pretty cute!

During office hours I wear at least 3 to 3,5 inch block heel boots.
During leisure, I even wear 4 to 4,3 inch stiletto boots

Who am I, Just a straight , androgynous minded, married male with 3 kids.
Nobody, until now gave me negative comments. Not my wife, nor my kids, not even my boss or colleagues or friends. On the contrary, the comments I receive are very positive.

Reason to wear heels: I feel great in them, I love Heels very much.
The hight you gain, and the way you walk has something powerful en noble.

It's about time men break free, and start wearing shoes they like, as I see regularly men who envy me, some even secretly admit they lack the guts to do it.

Brilliantly said, Christophe. I agree completely. Men need to just start doing whatever makes them feel good and not worry about what "they" will say (whoever "they" are)...

Now all you need to do is post some of your looks -- I'd love to see them! :-)

Lol! Wish I could say I were fabulous... But, I did incorporate stiletto booties into the what I wore at Tokyo Fashion Week in October. While I certainly did get some compliments, I admit, it's not for everyone and there would be many who don't like that.

It's not common, but I HAVE seen some men look amazing in skinny heels at newmalefashion. (Not mine, but a site I visit often) but you'd have to go back a ways and dig through old posts.

Wow !
When I read 'heels' I think about stilettos, but I know there's short heels on dressy shoes and whatnot. So ..
I personally adore when men can rock anything "feminine," same as when women rock anything "masculine." I automatically detect a sense of open-mindedness.That's pretty much the thought. I mean hey let's go shopping, babe, and get some food.

All metallic heels of 4 to 4,2 inch. I often wear them in gothic outfit when going to parties and concerts.
But occasionally I also wear then on "off time".

It really depends what kind of heels you're talking about. I have seen some guy out there pulling them off really nicely!
I personally wouldn't, but I don't mind !

Hi christophes, love your pics, you have excellent taste in heels suitable for men to wear. I too have prgressed theough different styles, but wearing at home is quite different to wearing out. For. Wearing out, i prefer ankle boots, with either stack heel or stiletto heel. My favourtites are 5" stilletto heeld ankle boots. Skinny jeans and close fitting tee shirt for summer goes well.

I don't have much of an opinion. I think if someone does it well, it is interesting to see, but I prefer my husband dressed simple and very guy-ish.

That's the opinion most women, especially most wifes share. And this is one of the reasons why so few men wear heels.

I personally love them, but my wife does not, so I don't really often wear heels.
But I like them!

In a way you can't blame them. Heels signal something feminine to women. I think most want a more manly look because it signals "hetero"...and you want your own partner to be into women.
May be a cliche but I think our brains work this way because of our natural instincts.

I think it really depends on the heels:

remember - most mens' dress shoes have heels. Not high ones, but about 3 cm high.

High heels and especially stilettos are difficult for men to wear (and, by the way, it is enough if women damage their feet by extensively wearing them), but I think some wedge heels (about 5 to 7 cm can work for a man without getting too feminine.

At a party years ago my friends and I were joking around that a guy friend of ours should try walking in our heels, we all stopped laughing when he actually looked gorgeous in them! I don't know if men wearing feminine heels would be taken seriously, but I do like the look of men's heeled boots.

I actually really love when men wear heels. Specifically together with men's fashion. I think it works really well.

Skirts too, specially long ones.

I think in today's modern age we are just used to categorising heels as feminine foot wear. I wonder what it would be like to see the trend come back in men. Check out this article here!

bbc.com/news/magazine-21151350

On a slightly different note, in Korea, men stack insoles in their shoes to give the illusion of height. I can foresee a trend of incorporating thicker external soles than our current norm there.

Not the same at all. Heels are shoes and shoes serve a purpose no matter the gender. Bras however, only serve a purpose for women, unless a man has unusual breast growth for some reason.

Why even ask? If you want to wear them then do so. Enjoy your individual freedom. No matter the object, there will be those who like it and those who do not. As long as it is not hurting you or others, there is no problem. If people ridicule or insult, it is because they have a problem, not you.

I'm 56 and have been wearing high heels since I was 20. An old girl friend loved it when I wore heels. That's when I found that I really liked wearing the,. If I could, I would wear them out but society just isn't cooperative when it comes to breaking the gender rules. I'm option is, it's a freak'n shoe, who cares?

The social programming has worked. People actually believe clothing items determine what sex a person is or wants to be. From this I have to ask, are women wearing men's apparel becoming men, since it is same reasoning behind men wearing women's items want to become women? Many of the common appareling items worn has been fashionable in both men's and women's choices, which due to this discussion includes high heels. In fact, many women use to wear heels to project a manly profile, when heels were part of their man's wardrobe selections. The idea of individuals having their own desires and tastes seems to be lost in this social brainwashing. Why are people surprised when a person ventures beyond of their stereotyping, which adds to their options of self-expression and enhances their personality? This in turn, helps them to live a richer and fuller life then those who are content to let their stereotyping dictate how and what they should think and live. Just as all bodily coverings are subject to a person's choice, high heels have been worn by both men and women, only in this day and age, society has created limits and penalties for people who challenge its man-made rules and standards when it really is not society's place to dictate a person's individualism.

I've never seen guys wearing heels and have a hard time picturing that. I am an avid supporter of clogs for men though and have been sporting them at work for quite a while now. And they are very comfortable whereas I haven't heard anyone who thinks heels are comfortable.
