They look really nice on boots. But I wouldn't wear heels higher than 5 centimeters because I'm already tall... I don't want to look like a giant.
This is ignorant on Sooooo many levels........just go away......thats like me saying to women: "it's okay to have short hair, if you're a lesbian" or "it's okay to wear ties, if you're some kind of dike"Anna K go that way ------------------------------------------------------------------->
Well, I say men wear what they wan!. But I wouldn't want my boyfriend in anything more intense than slightly heeled boots. Does that make me a hypocrite, or something of equivalent ignorance?
I saw Lenny Kravitz wearing a pair of black wedges... he's so hot. He's the one and only exception for me lol.

RUSSIA BUT LIVES IN,
@JORDAN S.Oh my God!!!!! Why can´t you respect my opinion? Don´t be so cheeky. Well, I think, you have to go away. --------> -.-´
I would dump any man who wore heels or gender bending. Not right in my opinion.

Ofcourse they should be able to!Heels are so flattering, even if society see it in a feminine way.If there were heels specially catered for men, they could still be masculine and stylish :)but maybe not stilettos or wedges already created for women...

amenexcept this does not only apply for men wearing "womens clothing" but just being allowed to wear what you want, in general.
thats very ignorant of you..
THE LAKE DISTRICT,
I think that men should wear what they want.Society has assigned gender roles, and heels are supposedly for women, which is ridiculous.I want equal rights to do whatever I want as a female, so therefore men should have the same... If they feel good in a dress or heels, then good for them! xo

Even though heels have invented for men during the ancient time, I still don't think that it looks nice for a man to wear heels. I mean some shoes for men have heels but wearing high shoes that are intended for women, is really inappropriate to use by a man. (this is just my own perspective so don't get mad at me) -.-

i think it shows they have killer confidence and they dont care what anyone else things and because of that i love it, show of those legs guys :)
It has. Thanks :) PS: Not everyone has to support gay rights or whatever it is that has made you come across as quite sour. I don't and I think it is very gay for a man to wear heels. My opinion and it's staying that way.

Thank you! It's time to break free from our (sometimes) strictly genderized fashion norms. I stated on another post that it is ok for women to wear men's clothing, but when a man wears a women's clothing, he is considered deviant or gay *gasp*. Fashion is to be enjoyed! Let people wear whatever they want to wear. Let's stop being sexist
Personally, I hate this trend. I believe they are made for women. I kept on wondering why some men wear heels and then I realize maybe because they want to have their personal style which is somehow okay.
It's not that I can't respect your opinion...I mean heck, you can post whatever is on your mind....but just how you are able to post your thoughts and opinions, I'm able to as well..........and in my opinion, your opinion is ignorant...so once again go that way -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------->
It's so refreshing to hear how everyone is understanding about the freedom of fashion. If you really think about it, it's only clothes/shoes.... Its a way of expressing yourself and how you feel. And to have that freedom feels so great. As a matter of fact, I am currently on the train to attend a friend's opening of his restaurant and coincidentally I am wearing wedges. Sure, I got some looks but I also received many compliments. So my take on it is that people are just not used to seeing it...YET. I guess if one wants to wear whatever they like that is different, the more they do of then people will get used to it and after a while it wont be strange anymore. Take men wearing earrings, for example. Just do what you want and remember that whatever everyone else thinks about you is none of your business. :-)

SAN FRANCISCO / SEOUL,
I support this movement.

Dear women who have posted comments like, "it's fine if men wear them, but I wouldn't be attracted to them."The fashion/style world does not revolve around weather or not you are are attracted to someone, even though you may think it does. Thank God.To the people who have posted things like, "Only if you are gay."Since when did sexual orientation mandate fashion. If i'm straight and want to wear them I will. If i'm bisexual and want to wear them I will. If I'm gay and want to wear them, I will. Take your hetronormative and homophobic stereotyping elsewhere. Thanks. I love the heels for men trend. It's great. Dresses men up. Makes us look good. Finally in the words of the queen, Madonna: Girls can wear jeans And cut their hair short Wear shirts and boots 'Cause it's OK to be a boy But for a boy to look like a girl is degrading 'Cause you think that being a girl is degrading -What it feels like for a girl. Madonna.

i think if guys want to wear heels then they have every right togirls hate it when guys say we cant do something just because were girls. aren't we doing the same thing if we say they can't wear heels?me being short i would hate guys to be even taller than they already are but i think it would be cool for a guy to wear heels :)

Anyone can wear whatever they want, I have no problem with that. but that doesn't mean it looks good.Some guys can pull it off though, Bill Kaulitz for example does the feminine look very well C:
I'm not opposed to the concept, but I have yet to see someone makes heels on men not look too feminine or too clunky. Bless Rick Owens, he keeps trying to makes heels and skirts for men happen. Sorry Rick, but we're a long way from that yet.
I think anyone can wear whatever they want. Its not about gender, its about expression and personality. Why does that need people to say if its okay or not? Of course self expression and individuality is okay. Just not to everyone, clearly.
I say, I wear what you want! :)) Even if you're a straight guy and you want to wear heels, more power to you!

THE CITY OF ANGELS,
I like it. Besides, men wore heels long ago during the 1600s.

Haha, Epha, I like your comment. I did laugh about it :D But Anna, could you explain that? Why should gay men be allowed to wear high heels but straight men shouldn't?I don't really get that.. because YOU wouldn't think it's attractive?
I think it comes down to having the opportunity to diversify one's wardrobe. Women have so much more (and at cheaper prices, I might add) choices to have different looks. For example, take a nice sweater, some dressy shorts and wear boots/hard bottom shoes....now take that same sweater & short combo add some tights and put on some heels and there is an entirely different look with the same ensemble. It essentially just doubled your choices. On one hand it looks rugged while on the other it's sleek with nicer lines. I believe men are opting to go for a "cute" look sometimes vice the sole rugged/sloppy look that men's style has become. Women's shoes in general produce a narrowing effect and with the added heel height can go a step further with slimming of the legs. Personally, I love wedges because they seem to be a good in-between medium.

The concept is still new I guess, so I'm not really fond of it. But maybe in the future it'll change. If I have to, I'd go for platforms, no heels please.

Neither clothes, nor shoes have a gender. The only gender they have is what we assign to them. So why is it that society assigns high heels to be feminine? They may as well be masculine -- it has a lot to do with convention and what we are used to seeing. Unfortunately, most people (and even here on LB, as is evidenced by rather uncultured and uninformed comments like Elle), seem to think that what we put on ourselves is an indicator of our sexual preference. It is not! I live in Japan, where men are perfectly well accepted wearing pastels and floral motifs. Again, it's what you are used to.It all has everything to do with time and place. Blue wasn't always for boys and pink wasn't always for girls. (In fact, in Victorian times, babies of both sexes were often dressed in white and little boys until they started going to school were made to wear dresses)... Everything you THINK you know about what is masculine or feminine is a myth and an illusion perpetuated by the society around you. It is very temporal. Everything from sights, to sounds, to smells. A few months ago, I was researching what made certain perfumes "masculine" and others "feminine." Short answer: marketing departments. I learned that what wouldn't be acceptable in N. America would be fine elsewhere, for example. In India, men love to wear the scent of jasmine, and Arab men tend to be fond of roses... Here's one for people like Elle... Did you know that one of the most masculine men around, Sean Connery, regularly gender-bends in the perfume department? He wears Jicky by Guerlin -- a woman's perfume. Guess you'd have to dump his ass for being too girly for you!So I really don't give a crap if any woman OR man looks at me wearing my clothes, which some might call feminine... Or my shoes, (I have some killer heels), or even my nail polish (it's paint -- the same stuff I have on my car), or my perfume (I LOVE Coco Chanel Mademoiselle), and calls me gay, or TG, or have any other silly opinions... I agree, we each have our own sense of aesthetics... And for me, in spite of some of the more unusual things I wear, I don't think I would feel right putting on an evening gown, for instance. But I would NEVER, EVER say a disparaging word to a man who did, because the fact that it goes against my sense of how a man should dress is MY PROBLEM -- NOT HIS! And I would never presume to tell my friends, family, or children that it's in any way acceptable to impose something that's a very individual and personal preference onto the rest of society. I wear what I do because I want to. Never because society says I should or shouldn't.
