Footwear news reports on Lenny Kravitz' multiple appearances at the 2022 Grammy Awards in two different pairs of heeled leather boots. Firstly on the Red Carpet in a pair of black knee length boots, then later on stage in a metallic silver pair. This of course is not a new thing for Lenny, who has been a fan of heeled footwear and boots for many years.

Unfinished Man blog ("not merely a men’s lifestyle and entertainment blog, but a site devoted to the essence of masculinity and becoming a real man") poses the question whether a man can wear "Women's Shoes".

I have to be honest, this article was close to not making the cut for inclusion on Men's Heels Revolution. It was only the fact that it was written by a man and concluded positively that it made it. The article could have benefited from deeper research and often repeats itself, but the intentions are noble.

Many articles written for men's magazines or blogs (and a small number by women), ridicule or make light of the idea of men wearing high heels, or any gender non-conforming style. Contrary to this particular article, here we call them high heels, or just heels as they are not women's shoes, but just shoes with heels. They don't belong to any specific gender any more than your toothbrush does!

Still worth a read if only to appreciate that things are maybe starting to change in how men talk to other men about gender non-conformity.

Our founder, Rob Taylor, had the pleasure of being interviewed by Hayley Lind (@hayleyclind) for this feature in Input Magazine (@input).

"Hayley was motivated to approach me by the amount of media coverage which I had referenced on heels for men for this piece." said Rob, "She certainly agreed with my findings that there was a definite trend happening in the fashion world for men to wear heels again".

Anchored with commentary from Rob throughout, the article explores the "genderless heels" trend with insights from independent designers who have changed their manufacturing and marketing methods to accommodate an inclusive approach where shoes are for all, regardless of gender. The article also uncovers why inclusive sizing is not quite as simple as to achieve you might think it could be, though not a problem that can't be solved.

We're delighted to get this great coverage and hope it will be the first of many!

The GQ Men Of The Year Awards 2019 saw British singer Sam Smith step out onto the red carpet for the first time in high heels. Their black Gucci patent leather heeled boots clearly caught the attention they demanded, but for Sam this was clearly a euphoric moment for them as this short, but very sweet article shows.

Interestingly, the article uses the pronouns He/Him, though Sam now uses They/Them.
