It's always great to see brands emerging with open minded attitudes towards clothing and gender. AFT-R Barcelona is a relatively new shoe brand who are now embracing genderless heels. It's a bold move for a relatively young brand, though their styles will certainly appeal to a large audience regardless of gender. With sizes from EU36 to EU44, there's clearly still some caution about the market for men with the absence of sizes above EU44, though it's still a welcome start and keeps the conversation going about heels for men.
From the article:
"AFT-R BARCELONA, a genderless shoe brand created in Barcelona in 2019 by Eric Turró and Alejandra Conesa, has always been known for advocating inclusion and diversity through footwear. Coinciding with its third anniversary, the project expands its family of products by adding the genderless high-heeled boot to its offer."

It's not the first time that Johannes Radebe (@johannesradebe) has slayed in heels on the BBC's Strictly Come Dancing show, though it was arguably his best performance in heels yet! Here's a peek...
From the article:
"the party truly started when Johannes, who is dancing with comedian Ellie Taylor this year, stormed out in a pair of killer red boots, pleather trousers, and a Prince-style wig."
"Not only did he strut down that stage like the runway model he deserves to be, but he proceeded to give us some chair action with high kicks and sassy facial expressions."
featuring these reactions from Twitter fans: "Johannes dancing in heels is one of my favourite things in the world."
"Oh my – Johannes in an Afro wig and high heeled boots. I am SO here for that."
"Johannes is in red stiletto boots. Something has gone right in the world for once."
Let's hope there's more like this on Strictly in the future!

Asian magazine, Prestige reports on how Harry Halim has everyone talking about his Kitana boots for men and how his creation is simultaneously making waves in the fashion industry and shaking up our ideas about masculinity.
"To me, masculinity is not defined by what you wear. Masculinity is a term referring to the social roles expected of a man. In today’s world, a man who is masculine is a man who is responsible – who loves, honours and provides for his family and his surroundings. True masculinity is not determined by how much physical strength or muscles that a man has, but rather the strength of his character."
