Fitness & Proper Wear of High Heels in Gym Class?

May 02, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Advice and Assistance, High heel tips and suggestions, How To Walk In Heels

Whether women love to wear high heels or just love the attention they get when they do, many do not know how to walk in them properly or torture their bodies when they do.

 
Heel Hop There is now a gym class in Los Angeles, CA where one can go to not only get a workout, but also learn the how to properly wear high heels! Kamilah Barrett’s Heel Hop class at Muscle Mechanics is offering a low-impact workout which costs $15 for an hour long class, where 30 minutes is spent on toning and 30 minutes on tips for proper wear, spinal alignment, balance, and foot positioning. This sounds like a pretty good investment compared to the possible injury and discomfort that many women experience from improper wear.
   
Kamilah is famous for being a finalist on FOX’s “So you think you can Dance” and for being a lead dancer in music videos for 50 Cent and R. Kelly, just to name a couple. She has traveled the world as a professional choreographer, dancer, singer, and actress. She was first discovered by the music legend Prince.
   

Can’t make it to California for one of her classes? You can now purchase her training video online for $19.99. We are sure it can’t truly compare to taking her class, but until they are available in a gym near you, it may be the next best thing!

Men’s Lingerie?

May 02, 2013 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - Men Wearing High Heels, News

With the growing trend of man’s fashion freedom around the world today, gay and straight men can now not only purchase high heels especially made for men in all different styles and heel heights, but they can now purchase lingerie in women’s styles especially made for men.

 

The company HommeMystere, located in Australia, said their under garments include “comfortable men’s panties that really do fit, bra straps that don’t fall off the shoulder, teddies that don’t ride up halfway through the night and quality soft fabrics that feel great for all day wear”.  This is not the first time a company has ventured out and tried to make items styled or designed after women’s clothing for the male gender, and maybe unlike all the others this one will make a go of it. Over the past few years more and more straight and gay men alike have ventured out from behind closed doors in high heels, and even some performers have been seen daunting these irresistible shoes. The cry for men’s fashion freedom has grown so loud that manufacturers have started to respond by creating products to suit this growing niche.

We here at The High Heel Store have also heard the calls and have helped many men find the product they desire. Whether it being a woman’s shoe in their size and style, or a high heel made for men, we strive to provide the product our customers want. Unfortunately we have also gotten feedback from several men that they do not want a high heel that is made for a man, but want a woman’s high heel that they could wear comfortably. We are eager to see how men react to this line. While most men who do have a passion and desire to wear women’s high heels and clothing, and they want it to be made for a woman, others choose to go with fit and as of now HommeMystere seems to be trying to fill the need of those men.
