Platform shoes

5 inch platform shoesAnywhere you look and everywhere you look, you will see ladies with those 5-inch platform shoes on their feet. Once upon a time it was normal to see flats and 1, 2, and 3 inch heels. Although they were born in the 1930’s, platform shoes are still young at heart. Back in the 1970’s both men and women wore platform shoes. Now there are all kinds of designer heels that are platforms. Platform shoes are shoes that have very thick soles. The soles of the shoes can be made out of rubber, plastic, cork or wood. The platforms made from wood are usually referred to as clogs. The only part of the shoe that is considered when deciding if it is a platform or not is not the heel, but the sole that rests under the main part of the foot. Platform shoes, whether they are 5 inch or smaller or larger, can be found with many different heel types. Usually platform soles are paired with wedge heels, but anymore you can find stiletto heels with a platform sole. Platform shoes also include those that are boots, not just dress heels.

The love for platform shoes came about in the late 1960’s, faded out during the 1980’s and came back into fashion in the 1990’s. There are many different style to the platform shoes, including espadrilles, oxfords, sneakers and sandals. Now, the most famous platform shoes would be the super elevated Gillie that came out in the 1990’s. Supermodel Naomi Campbell was wearing those as she sashayed down the catwalk only to find herself sprawled on the floor, having mis-stepped and fallen. Nowadays you can find celebrities still flashing their feet in stylish platform shoes. Alexander Wang’s platform boots are already being sported by both Madonna and Rhianna. For the ladies who wish to dare to try them out, but aren’t sure how to carry themselves on such elevation, there are even videos and wiki pages describing how to walk in platform shoes. 5-inch platform shoes have really made a hard comeback and it doesn’t look like they will be going away anytime soon.

Men wearing high heels

Men wearing high heels

Though it may seem hard to believe today, high-heeled shoes were first worn by men. Horseback-riding cultures in 10th century Mongolia wore  heels because they helped keep the feet in the stirrups, which explains why cowboy boots still have heels. It also helped the rider secure their stance to be able to shoot a bow and arrow more efficiently. The Persian army wore one-inch heels when courting European aristocrats to help the Persians defeat the Ottoman Empire, spreading the trend to Europe. They came to be associated with the upper class because they showed that the person wearing them maintained and owned horses. Upper class women started wearing high heels, eventually becoming a form of upper and middle-class fashion in the 17th century. As the trend made its way to the lower classes, the aristocracy decided to dramatically increase the height of the shoe on both men and women, effectively inventing the high heel.

High Heels 

high heelsHigh heels were still not associated with gender at this point; Louis XIV wore heels to exemplify his masculinity. He was said to have a vast shoe collection, partly to supplement his short stature. His heels were often decorated with elaborate battle scenes carved on them. Heels were still quite manly at this point; in fact, women initially adopted them to look more masculine. Heels slowly began to become gendered in how they were designed. Men’s heels were more broad and sturdy and women’s were more narrow and decorative. By the 18th century, men decided they were impractical and they began to be known as a lady’s shoe. The French Revolution of 1789 saw the aristocracy and the fancy heeled shoes they wore go out of style, and men’s heels have yet to make a comeback.

It can be difficult to find high heels to wear if you are a man. You will probably have to look in the women’s sections to find them, but there are also online stores that cater specifically to men who want to wear high heels. It can also be difficult to walk in high heels if you haven’t done so before. Wedged high heels are the best shoes to start with because they are one solid platform from the high heel to the toe and the weight is spread out more evenly to help in balancing. From there, you can move on to stilettos or pumps, which have narrow heels that are more difficult to walk in.

Womens shoes with crazy heels

crazy heelsThe idea of crazy heels means different things to different people, and especially depending on the situation. For instance, the idea of crazy heels may strike a young man as something sexy or something desirable. For those in the fashion industry, crazy heels may mean heels that are extremely high or oddly shaped or made out of unusual materials. For a woman, crazy heels may mean heels that are difficult for her as an individual to walk in–every woman has had the experience of that pair of heels she absolutely loved and had to own, but couldn’t wear due to discomfort. Therefore, crazy heels can mean different things according to who is doing the thinking and where they are being asked–for example, a young man doesn’t want to say what he really thinks about sexy crazy heels in front of his mother or grandmother or girlfriend.

Crazy heels come in many different forms. One only needs to search embarrassing videos on online video sites to find video after video of models on the runway, wearing nontraditional heels, falling to the ground. Crazy heels may be heels that are impossible to walk in. For instance, some designers are known for propping their models up on heels that feature 8 inch or more high platform bottoms, making the models appear a foot taller than they are naturally. Crazy heels may also be made out on unusual materials or shaped oddly or backward. The basic shape that forms to the bottom of the foot is versatile and can be featured in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, colors, textures, etcetera.

crazy heels

Crazy heels can also be kinky heels. Some men enjoy wearing heels, with varying degrees of kink. Crazy heels can come in so many shapes and forms that many men who engage in dressing in drag utilize crazy heels or kinky heels as part of their outfit, the process of putting them on and also the image the heels project to the world help the man feel his inner femininity radiate from inside out.

Every woman has at one point owned a pair of crazy heels. Heels are considered such a feminine object in our modern culture that almost every woman owns at least one pair of heels. Often older women will have realized that crazy heels can often be uncomfortable to wear, and will opt for sensible heels, but this is often only after a process in which many years of discomfort in crazy heels takes place. For instance, a woman in her early 50’s will have spent most of her teenage years, 20’s, and maybe into her 30’s, wearing varying degrees of crazy heels. After a process of elimination, this wiser woman will know that crazy heels are not always the way to go, but that a sensible option can be more conducive to human life.

Designer shoes

designer shoesDesigner shoes have become widely popular in the 20th and 21st centuries. Most popular amongst women for their style, such as high heels, other types of designer shoes are being introduced into the market every day particularly for men, a quick growing demographic of designer shoe consumers. From Italian leather dress shoes to athletic designer shoes, there are many options than ever before. But, the question remains, is a designer shoe truly worth the expense? Many frugal consumers do not see the value of such costly shoes; but, to an avid designer shoe purchaser, it is clear: the value is in the shoe itself.

Beautiful designer shoes

The value of a shoe stretches beyond the price; there are multiple factors to consider. Firstly, the quality of materials, designer shoes are made of high quality materials and created with a strong structure they may last longer than their inexpensive competitors. This is not say non-designer shoes are lesser or not exceptional, for they serve their purpose as well. Secondly, in looking at comparable shoes in both designer and non-designer shoes, there is a clear difference in appearance. The designer shoe appear to have smoother lines and seams as well as an overall cleaner appearance. The non-designer shoes are typically lighter, likely due to the use of plastics and rubbers versus leathers. The designer shoe also appear to have fewer deformities on the surfaces and where surfaces meet, for instance at the seams. These are just a few of the initial visual comparisons of designer and non-designer shoes. Now, a regular consumer of non-designer shoe may say the appearance is of low importance when considering the small details. After all, when working daily in an office, who is looking at one’s feet when they are under a desk? Therefore, the price one pays for quality is irrelevant. Every consumer has their preferences and designer shoes are not for everyone, especially if the differences are leather versus plastic. Not everyone has an eye for nuance, nor does every individual care. It is a personal choice, one they must make for themselves. What may be insufficient for one individual may be considered excessive for another.

Designer shoes come in many shapes and sizes, but one consistency is in the quality. If a consumer wants a high quality, long-lasting shoe he or she will pay for it. If the details are not as important to a consumer, he or she will likely opt for the less expensive non-designer shoe. Fortunately, there is a market for everyone. From stores created for the average consumer, filled with more plastic than one could imagine and not an ounce of leather, to designer shoe warehouses where just the opposite is true. There is something for everyone and their needs. Everyone must make a decision based on what is best not only for their personal style, but also for their budgets, It looks like the only item left to consider is whether or not the perfect shoe will fit.

Cute heels- Love Them!

cute heelsA favorite topic of conversation among women is the subject of heeled shoes. A set of cute heels can be found in almost any feminine closet in America. Many find the idea of lacking the perfect cute heels to be the thing of nightmares. The amount of designs to choose from can be mind-boggling as well. There exist floral patterns, textile patterns, and animal prints. You even have the classic solid colors that have been heels such a staple over the years. There are many, many different styles of heel. These could include the ever-popular stiletto, the kitten, or even the easier to walk on wedge. Any way you go, you will be adding a touch of style, class, and maybe even coy sexuality to your wardrobe!

Stilettos consist of a tall, slim heel atleast two inches in height, and no more than a half inch of diameter where it touches the ground. The tall, thin cute heels often makes these heels hard to walk in, let alone run. Sprained ankles and skinned knees are not a rare thing for the inexperienced stiletto wearer! Practice makes perfect, though, as an experienced stiletto wearer can be unmatched in the cute department! However, the position in which they place your feet can shape your calves and rear-end in a way that many women (and men) find desirable. The Kitten is a similar type of heel as the Stiletto. It has the same diameter rule as the Stiletto, but the heel height is shorter. The shorter heel can make it an easier heel to handle for beginners, as it is much easier to balance on a shorter heel. The ankles are less likely to roll, and tripping is far less likely. As the center of gravity of your body stays lower, balance is far easier to maintain. The Wedge is a type of heel that occupies the entire space under foot. It is not relegated to just the heel area, which provides much more comfort and stability against the other two heels talked about. The vastly increased surface area of the heel provides unmatched stability against heel rolling and tripping, while also providing the lift and ultimately cute look of heels. These factors make the wedge a perfect option for those less experienced at walking in heels, or those that will be in their heeled shoes for an extended period of time like a night out.

A cute set of heels can be found in almost any woman’s closet in America. They are an all around staple of footwear. Whether it’s the Stiletto, the Kitten, or the wedge, the knowledge you have gained here will help you to decide which cute heels are right for you. An almost limitless array of colors and patterns is available out there for you to tailor the cute heels to your taste. With a cute pair of heels in your closet to complete your look, you can not go wrong. Given all of the possibilities, you’ll never have to go without the perfectly cute heels to go with that outfit!

Silver high heels

Silver high  heels

Silver high heels will probably never go out of style. Many women consider them to be a necessity in any wardrobe. They can easily go with a dress, a stylish pair of pants, or possibly even a pair of jeans. Silver high heels are the “little silver dress” of the shoe world. There’s something about high heels that a woman feel inherently feminine and pretty.

While it’s true that high heels will always be in fashion, more and more, some women are deciding that they prefer to wear flat shoes. The ballet-style shoe has definitely become more popular in recent years. One reason for this trend may be that women are increasingly interested in comfort. The average woman spends a lot of time on her feet these days and high heels are not very practical for all types of activities. For example, a mom may not want to wear high heels while taking the kids out to the park during the day or to the library, but she will still want to look put together. She could opt for a pair of ballet flats during the day for the sake of comfort and then choose a pair of silver high heels in the evening if she’s going out on a date or to a more formal event.

5 Inch Silver High  heels

Besides being uncomfortable, high heels may actually be bad for your feet. They cause your feet to be at an unnaturally steep angle while you walk and over time, this could lead to foot pain and possibly swelling. It can also be dangerous to walk in high heels if the street is made of cobble stone or brick, for example. Many women have experienced ankle twisting when their heel became stuck in a piece of stone. Walking in the grass can be tricky while wearing high heels as well. For example, a lot of women like to wear high heels to a wedding so that they will look more glamorous, but if the wedding is outside she may have to walk through the grass. The heel of her shoe will sink into the grass and could become stuck. It takes a bit of practice to learn how to walk in high heels, especially on a surface that isn’t entirely flat or solid.

In summary, silver high heels will probably always be considered to represent the height of fashion, but more and more, some women are deciding that fashion should take a backseat to comfort and even safety. Depending on the occassion, it may not be worth the risk to her feet, back, and ankles to look slightly more attractive while wearing high heels. It’s a decision that women must make for themselves. Many women are relieved that the current trend is leaning towards wearing ballet flats and other cute flat shoes. It’s completely acceptable to wear flat shoes or even strappy sandals to more formal occassions like a wedding or a cocktail party. Inevitably, some women will continue to wear high heels but it’s no longer considered to be necessary.

Lace up Heel

Heels were designed to not only give an added boost to a woman’s height but the leg a more shapely appeal to the eye, and it’s a wonder it’s taken so long for such a simple idea to be applied to such a variety of footwear styles. Lace up heels can take on any fashion challenge, all while meeting standards of comfort. No woman will tell you that wearing a pair of high heels feels like angels rubbing her feet. Often there is an opposite image evoked, one with hot coals and broken glass. The angled shoe puts all of a body’s weight downward onto the toes and weakest portions of the foot. With the traditional unforgiving pump, the shoe’s materials rub, chafe, blister, and cut into the skin. Perhaps the story of Cinderella had at least one thing right in saying no two feet are exactly the same. On one person a shoe may be too tight on the toe but too loose on the ankle while the next person may find the exact opposite true. Most women choose to suffer through the pain when they find it’s the only pair of shoes in the store that are the right color, style, and size for that upcoming wedding reception. With the lace up heel design however, flexibility is afforded. Laces allow personalization, adjusting such tension points, distributing them along the surface of the foot accordingly. Style doesn’t have to be sacrificed for comfort, and neither does price or durability. With such a diverse range of styles the lace up heel is becoming available in; it’s only natural that an equal range of price and durability can be found. They can be found to be as expensive as $2,000.00 to as sensibly priced at $10.00. The reason for such a range being that the lace up heel is only going to be as cost efficient or as durable as the shoe the exaggerated heel was added to. It cannot be denied however, no matter the price, the addition of such a comfortable versatile design to any woman’s wardrobe, just may be worth every penny.
