Articles tagged with "High Heel Shoes"
Who What Wear gives us some great advice and tips in this article which apply equally for women and men who wear heels.
From the Article:
"The easiest way to look ungainly in heels is to put your whole foot down at once as if you’re wearing flats. It may seem obvious to many, but when wearing a high shoe, put your heel down first, followed by your toe. This will make your walk look more natural."
"you’ll walk more gracefully if you look at your goal point (the café at the end of the street, for example) and visualise a straight line going toward it rather than staring down at your toes as you walk."

As Russia started its "special operation" in Ukraine, the world at large started to try and understand the man at the top spot in Ukraine. As comedian-turned-politician, Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has no shortage of video footage of him engaged in various amusing activities, it wasn't long before the previously recorded video reappeared of him dancing in high heels. Along with 3 other men in heels, they performed (admirably I might add) a routine, not too dissimilar to Beyonce's smash hit "Single Ladies" which was released in 2009.
This article from Newsweek, which covers how the video went viral, is brief and worth a read, but also has a link to the video for you to watch.

From 2018, Quartz magazine delves into the history of the high heel through the research of Elizabeth Semmelhack (@elizabeth_semmelhack) at the Bata Shoe Museum, recounting how women borrowed heels from the male wardrobe to look more masculine. Enlightenment put an end to men wearing heels at the end of the 17th century. Though as Elizabeth says “Heels are just things. They can be given any meaning we decide they have”. When asked, “So could men start wearing heels once more?” she concluded... “anything’s possible.”
Four years on and it seems it’s not only possible, but happening at a pace!

MyBest ranks the top 10 best heels for men in the UK in 2021. Written in March of this year we can now look back and ask whether higher heels for men have been delivered. The trend is definitely moving in the right direction, and with many styles selling out fast, we can say they have delivered for sure. For some potential buyers though heel heights have still to reach the heights they desire to achieve the fashion aesthetic they desire. Independent shoe creators are still crucial in this area, but the higher heels go in the mainstream, the marginal styles will be sure to follow.
