"Famed French luxury designer Christian Louboutin hears the cry for genderless shoes and styles"
"The styles are bold, to be sure, but in a wide range of sizes, they leave room for every big personality, regardless of gender identity or expression."
"You might want to try the leopard-print stage boots, made from kid leather and pony hair in brown."
"each aims to blend elegance and edge with a personal sense of self-expression."
"The shoes will range in sizes from 36 to 46, becoming the fashion house’s most extensive size range to date."
We think they look amazing. We'd love to hear what you think!

Stylus Media Group, an industry think-tank founded in 2009, reports on the collaboration between Jimmy Choo (@jimmychoo) and Billy Porter (@theebillyporter) to create heels for men in sizes up to US 15.
"While drag performers can find well-fitting footwear at specialised stores and retailers, many others including transgender women can often struggle to find appropriate heels in larger sizes. Reuters reports that transgender women can often be forced to “choose between more masculine styles and the hyper-sexualised designs of specialist retailers – with nothing in between.” Jimmy Choo and Porter’s collaboration taps into this market gap, providing more versatility in terms of sizing as well as everyday options, like classic heeled boots and suede pumps."
It is surely now only a question of time before the mainstream designers and retailers follow suit.

A short, but sweet article from Bellatory on places to find heels for men.
"Men have great legs; it's almost a crime not to show them off in a pair of high heels. There's a catch though. The problem with finding sexy high heels for men is that quite often it is impossible to find them in men's sizes. This goes doubly if you happen to be long and lanky or built on the larger side of the spectrum."
"men who love high heels don't have to suffer under the tyranny of the evil prince and that uppity little kitchen-maid anymore (who did she think she was anyway?) Your prayers are answered with this series of sites all offering pretty shoes for men in sizes they can wear."
It's great that people are writing about heels for men in this way, though I do feel that the research on this piece could have gone much deeper and it would have better reflected the fact that the men's heels renaissance is in fact in full swing.
You can of course find many, many more places for you to find heels via our Retailer Directory which has nearly 100 retailers and designers who sell heels and boots and in large sizes for men.

W magazine explores footwear for larger sizes and while there are still some challenges to overcome, the outlook is getter better...
"Retailers still consider more inclusive sizing a financial gamble, especially when it comes to expensive-to-produce runway pieces"
"Fashion is and should always be for all"
“I find each time the heel re-emerges in fashion really very interesting,” says Semmelhack. “Often, when quote-unquote women’s heels have been worn by men, it is in ways that are lampooning of women. When I started to see some men wear what are coded female shoes in non-ironic ways, I find a great deal of hope in these moments.”
