All KPop reports on boy band 2AM's Jo Kwon's appearance in a Crop Top, Leggings and High Heels. It's a shame there isn't much substance to it other than a collection of photos from Jo Kwon, so I'm only sharing this article due to the fact that it's reporting on a man in heels, as I feel it's important to amplify the visibility of the subject.
It was rightly called-out by some of the people commenting about their reference in the headline to his "perfect figure". We're not even going to go there as it might just turn into a long rant, but feel free to add your comments on our Instagram post, linked above in the Icons.

From 2021, Free Press Journal brings us this article covering the twitter-storm around Indian Actor, Ranveer Singh's heels which he wore for a photo shoot. It seems the trolls came out in force and once again demonstrated their lack of intolerance and engrained social conditioning.
From the article:
"If you ask someone why a man shouldn’t wear a skirt, there is no real reason. It’s just something we have learned from childhood and never questioned because we believed what was told to us by our parents/society was the rule. The conflict starts only when we see different things happening in another society and wonder why that is, because either they are not following the ‘rules’ or there are ‘no rules’. Now, if someone wants to break the norm, it becomes uncomfortable for others because it defies a longstanding belief system for a culture or a community."
"I just feel everybody has the freedom of wearing what they want. Nowadays, fashion has changed as per generational choices and we should also move with the times. I don’t feel it’s something that should be trolled."
"I think people feel threatened when others are confident about their sexuality and are able to express themselves freely. It is very sad to see such intolerance."
Thankfully, people are starting to open up to the idea that men can be more expressive with what they wear, whatever that is.

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.

Footwear News reports on Jared Leto's appearance on James Cordon's "The Late Late Show", while wearing a pair of White Patent stacked heel boots from Gucci, and talking about his role in the movie "The House of Gucci". It would have been odd if he'd been wearing anything else!
"The Thirty Seconds to Mars musician opted for the same shoe style when he attended the “Spider-Man: No Way Home” premiere in Los Angeles in December."
"When it comes to fashion, Leto could be considered a stylish savior as he continues to exemplify versatility. He is never one to shy away from risks. Hollywood’s Renaissance man continues to cycle through a lot of memorable style moments from his bleached eyebrows to his iconic Jesus-like locks, rock n’ roll stage style and extravagant Gucci ensembles."

Zoom brings us another write-up of the history of men in heels.
"When one thinks of heels, all one can imagine is glamour, style, and elegance. However, even though this kind of footwear is now mainly associated with women and femininity, it was once the go-to footwear option for men."
"not many know that heels originally found their place on the feet of male soldiers, aristocrats, and even royals in different parts of the world, including Persia. Persian men in the 10th century wore heels not just as a style statement but mainly because of the 'practicality' factor"
