Mens Style Fashion magazine asks whether we will see more feminine fashion in 2021. Women have forever been adopting men’s fashion in attempt to add some elements of masculinity, and we’re now seeing fashion move in the other direction with more feminine items introduced to men’s fashion options. Many men are now reinterpreting themselves, letting more of their vulnerabilities become visible through self-expressive dressing.

In answer to the question, and drawing close to the end of 2021, here at Men’s Heels Revolution we feel that the answer has been an emphatic YES!

In their own words... “In today's video, I will be sharing my love for wearing heeled shoes. I will be featuring some fashion labels that brought heeled shoes in the market and the good thing is that they have sizes for men! No need to stretch those women's shoes! Plus these labels aren't as expensive as designer brands like Margiela or Rick Owens so I hope this is helpful if you are a guy who wants to consider adding man-heels into your wardrobe.

Also, I will be featuring the guys I follow on Youtube and Instagram because they wear man heels with attitude. What I wanted to know from them is HOW they do it?”
