Lenny Kravitz has never been one to shy away from a style statement and his performance at the UNICEF Winter Gala 2022 in St. Barths was no exception. The most interesting element of his outstanding outfit were the black thigh length patent leather heeled boots.
From the article: "Kravitz slipped into one of his style signatures: heeled boots. His black thigh-high set featured tall, slightly slouchy uppers crafted from glossy black leather. Slightly rounded toes and angled block heels, likely totalling at least 4 inches in height, completed the pair with a height-boosting base that catapulted his 5-foot-9 frame."

Women's Wear Daily magazine reports on the appearance of Lenny Kravitz at the LuisaViaRoma UNICEF Gala 2022 where his outfit, including black patent knee high heeled platform boots, once again grabbed the headlines.
From the article:
"Kravitz is not only known for his music, but for his standout style. His stylish aesthetic over the years earned him an Icon award at the 2022 CFDA Fashion Awards in November."
“Fashion is another avenue for artistic expression. There are no rules other than to be yourself. If what I’m doing connects or inspires someone to be more confident in their own skin, there’s nothing more I could ask for. It all comes from within, just be you,” Kravitz said to WWD regarding the accolade.

As editor of Men's Heels Revolution my personal opinion is that we should share all articles we find on men in heels and boots to amplify the effect of those articles, even when the content of those articles may be quite small, as it is in this case. It's more the fact that someone else is talking about men in heels and boots and bringing men's heeled fashion to a wider audience, breaking down gender stereotypes and social norms. We generally try to link to articles when they've been published in the 12 months prior to when we post them. We don't always find them just after publication, though if you do find something of interest which I've not posted, please do get in touch and let us know!

In this article the Bright Side website highlights the growing confidence of men in heels and explores the possible reasons why.
"It’s not known by everybody, but men did wear heels in the past, long before women started wearing them. High heels were originally designed for men, but this faded over the past centuries. However, surprisingly, heels seem to be breaking their way back into men’s fashion again, as more and more celebs have started to embrace their feminine side by wearing their favourite pair of heels."
"statistics show that the sales of heeled men’s shoes have been on an upturn since 2017. More and more men are embracing their femininity and showing off their beloved heels more confidently than ever."
"High heels are still associated with women’s fashion in the modern day, though more and more celebrities, like pop icons and rock stars, are keeping this trend alive for men. The expansion of heels in the male section at stores has gone beyond the stiletto.
Many different types of heeled shoes have become available. Designer brands, like Gucci, Maison Margiela, and Saint Laurent, knew that heeled shoes would break into men’s fashion again and took the opportunity to develop new models in this category."
While the article presumes that all men that wear heels are getting more in touch with their feminine side, which is somewhat stereotypical, it's generally a positive perspective and worth a read.
