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.

Platform Shoes Shaping North Korea’s New Image

July 11, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - High Heel Fashion, News

Attempting to forge a new image for himself and his country, North Korea’s youthful supreme leader Kim Jong Un is loosening the government’s grip on how women dress allowing women to wear pants, platform shoes and earrings. The only times women had been allowed to wear pants were when they were working in factories or in the fields. Any women walking the streets in pants were subject to a police warning or a penalty. According to a young woman who defected to the South in 2004, “If caught, sometimes they would cut your pants right there in public to make it into a skirt”. North Korean women spotted wearing skinny jeans and earrings often made news

 

platform shoes

in South Korean media because such items were known to be confiscated in the name of being too capitalist. But the trend has been visible in the past few years, and now platform shoes are in demand. Platforms ranked second out of 10 most popular items in North Korean society last year. The platforms shown to the left reportedly belonged to Kim Jong-il, who usually wore some sort of platform shoes due to his stature. Wearing of this type of footwear was commonplace hundreds of years ago as kings and nobility wore them.

Clothing isn’t the only lifestyle choice that the Kim Jong Un has reportedly eased up on: Kim apparently allows people to nosh on previously outlawed food, such as burgers and fries; encourages trips to zoos and amusement parks; and is steadily making more cell phones available.

While his father was leader, Kim Jong-il banned American-style fast food among other Western concepts, he allowed millions of his own people to starve to death, human-rights groups say. Beef is a luxury that few in North Korea could afford under any circumstances.

Riot Over Shoes at Florida Mall

February 24, 2012 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - News

Although it’s not news about high heels, we found it to be very interesting. Just reading the original news topic title had us imagining two women fighting over a pair! We should have remembered the other incident back before Christmas with the re-release of the Nike Air Jordan XI. It’s amazing how people will fight over a pair of shoes! The shoes in this incident were part of the Nike All-Star collection, with a galactic theme inspired by space exploration. Their release is designed as a nod to Orlando and Florida’s space industry.

The launch of an expensive new basketball shoe, the Nike Foamposite Galaxy, which was timed to Orlando’s hosting of the NBA All-Star Game this weekend, triggered a near-riot Thursday night at Florida Mall. The mall, which is located in Orlando, FL, had closed at 9 p.m. the crowd was asked to wait across the street when the mall closed at 9 p.m., but one person made a mad dash toward the Foot Locker where the shoes were to go on sale, and hundreds followed. The wild scene erupted about 9:45 p.m. as hundreds of people packed the mall’s parking lot, hoping to buy the new shoe at midnight. People drove in from Jacksonville and even flew in from New Haven to try to get a pair of these shoes.

The actions of these people resulted in the shoes not being released as was planned. In the end, in Florida two people were arrested on tresspassing charges Thursday and a third person, a woman, was arrested Friday morning for fighting outside Foot Locker. A similar scene played out at a Washington, D.C. area mall early Friday where fans waited to get the Nike Foamposite Galaxy shoes. Police in Hyattsville, MD, made one arrest, as the crowd there was estimated at over 100. Early Friday, Foot Locker announced that it was canceling the shoe’s release at certain malls and stores. “Our priority is the safety of the community,” Foot Locker said in a statement.

High Heel Torture

December 12, 2011 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - News

When most people hear the phrase ‘high heel torture’, they think about the pain women go through squeezing their feet into a pair of high heels, but in this case we are referring to a story originating in Germany. Two women who stepped on mice while wearing high heels to give a man perverse sexual stimulation have been convicted of animal cruelty by a court in central Germany.

The women, aged 29 and 25, made a film of their “animal crushing” exploits, having been promised a considerable amount of money for the video by an unnamed man. The women not only stepped on mice, but also two lizards and three geckos, and ran over 12 mice in a car on the video. They also filmed themselves burning mice with lit cigarettes.

The 29 year old woman was sentenced to a suspended sentence of nine months, and told to pay €500 to an animal protection organization. Her 25 year old friend is missing and could not be sentenced. No information is available about the man who was paying the two women to make the video as he is facing charges in a different case. The 29 year old claims that she did not torture the animals for fun, rather that she needed the money that she had been promised in order to move to the US and study business. Her dreams have been shattered as she is no longer allowed to enter the US.

High Heel Knockoffs Used to Smuggle Cocaine

November 11, 2011 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - News

We have heard of many strange ways drug traffickers try to smuggle drugs into other countries, but just recently we read a story of one using high heels!

A four month investigation revealed that a 34-year-old man and his 24-year-old wife, both Colombian, headed up a ring of six members who were smuggling cocaine from Colombia to Spain in the form of fake Manolo heels. They molded paste-like cocaine into the shape of a shoe and slapped it with the designer Manolo Blahnik’s label. When the sexy stilettos arrived in Spain, the paste shoe would be returned to white powder form and sold for a street value of around $69,000 per pair. A total of $630,000 worth of cocaine was ceased from this ring.
Two of the smugglers attempted to get away and were apprehended after a high-speed car chase.

In the past, Spanish police have discovered cocaine shipments disguised as replica sculptures, a plaster cast protecting a man’s broken leg, and even a 42-piece tea set.

Spain’s proximity to Morocco, a key source of hashish, and close ties with its former colonies in Latin America, a major cocaine-producing region, have made it a major gateway into Europe for drug traffickers.

No More High Heels in Moscow, Russia?

August 29, 2011 :: Posted by - admin :: Category - High Heel Fashion, News

Will women wearing high heels in Moscow, Russia become a thing of the past? In an effort to "Europeanize" Moscow, they have begun to rip up and replace the sidewalks in the city center. This may not be too handicapped friendly either.

“The saddest thing of all is that spike heels, which Moscow women wore in any weather, will most likely disappear into history,” wrote Nikolai Uskov, the editor of the Russian edition of GQ magazine, in a blog post last week.
Young women left to swelter in sticky Moscow had suddenly taken to flats or wedges that better negotiated the gaps around the bricks. Although this is much more recommended footwear for traveling to work or other places by foot, it does create hassle for those who just can bear to go out without putting on a pair of high heels!
Many citizens agree that the tile looks more attractive than asphalt, but it is forcing many of the rollerskaters from the sidewalks to the streets. This is good news for many pedestrians.
62% of Muscovites are in favor of the new tile sidewalks.
