Women and dodgy shoes - with poll.

Discussion in 'threads and dreads' started by gentlegreen, Jun 16, 2009.


High heels and other style over function aspects.

  1. 1. I'm a woman and I wouldn't give houseroom to shoes that you have to learn to walk in.

  2. 2. I'm a woman and I like to wear high heels for formal / special occaisions.

  3. 3. I'm a woman and I wear heels all day if at all possible. (probably even in bed)

  4. 4. I'm a woman and it's an "art" thing.

  5. 5. I'm a woman and it's sexual - directly for me.

  6. 6. I'm a woman and I wear them to sexually attract those I desire.

  7. 7. I'm a man / (lesbian ?) and seeing them worn by the object of my desire is directly arousing.

  8. 8. I'm a man / (lesbian ?) and seeing them worn by my beloved is aesthetically pleasing.

  9. 9. I'm a man and I think they look stupid / tarty, whatever

  10. 10. obligatory random option

    Like those too - thing with designer shoes, doesn't matter what season they are, they always make a statement. Alot of Miu Miu stuff is timeless.

    I mostly live in trainers and do have a pretty impressive collection of kicks, but really you can't beat a pair of high heels and how they make you feel, as well as the amazing effect they have on a girl's calves and bum :cool:

    I have a pair of camo stilletos with a gold heel which are treading a fine line between ghetto and out and out trashy, but they look really good with jeans. I should wear them more I reckon, along with a high heeled pair of red peep toe sorta mary janes I have with a flower on front.

    Should I post the picture I have of my feet in kitten, out of twisted kitten's most ridiculous but awesome pair of shoes ever?

    But of course, this is the fashion forum after all.

    ffs. gentlegreen, get the fuck over it. :rolleyes:

    the poll options say a lot about your opinion of women.

    I see it as progress from the days when I placed women on pedestals.

    My misanthropism starts with myself and is actually in the main biased against my own sex.
    I could doubtless come up with a similar poll based around beer, football and the like.

    I like heels for formal wear, and they make my legs look great, but no way could I wear them casually or if I need to actually walk anywhere, other than wedge heels, I suppose, which I do wear in summer.

    I've never got the thing of 'shoe lust' for Manolos/Choos etc - I think perhaps because I'd never wear them (even if I had the money), I can't produce any excitement about them.

    Take it how you want - you come across as a complete saddo. I bet the Monroe character at your work is ten times more fun and ten times more interesting than you and your moaning self. All you do is complain - ever noticed that? Go and sprout some beans and talk about your fucking weight some more.

    So gentlegreen, on the one hand you say that being a man of a certain age gives you the kind of insight into the minds of women of a similar age that allows you to make the kind of statements that you have. And yet on the other hand, you say that you are 3/4 of the way up the Asperger's scale and don't have much experience of the company of women, which means you are singularly UNqualified to make such statements.

    So which is it?

    There's a poll option missing, surely?

    11. I am gentlegreen and I don't actually care why women like/don't like particular shoes. I just wanted to express my dislike and lack of understanding of shoes. And women.

    Maybe she just has rubbish posture and would waddle in any type of shoes??

    I don't like seeing women who obviously can't walk properly in high heels doing so because it's not good for them but hey it's up to them.

    I used to be able to walk miles in my heels and it didn't bother me. I can't do it now coz I'm out of the habit. I can still walk in 3/4" heels for a reasonable distance though, and probably a few miles in kitten heels.

    I can't do wedges/platforms though so I don't wear them. I couldn't see a voting option for me :p

    You're a breath of fresh air :D If I had £1 for every time someone asked me how you walk in high heels (er, put one foot in front of the other) well, i'd have all the high heels in the world.

    Those shoes aren't that high imo.

    I used to wear high heels a lot, the whole suit and heels jobbie. I enjoyed it.

    Nowadays I can't walk that well in them and they hurt but from time to time I will wear them.

    I love wearing them for sex! I have some just for that, beautiful red stilletoes and a pair of new ones, leapard print with a really beautifully cut heel.

    I dont see what your issue is with them Gentlegreen, or rather I do, but I enact the unfeminist position whilst knowing what its all about. I also like perfuming and oiling my skin. :hmm::D

    feyr evil evil monkey!

    i am very jealous of those legs too!

    i dont wear heels day to day because they arent practical for my job. i dont feel comftable in heels on a night out because i know i'll get drunk, trip and break my ankle so i stick to flats ( so i only trip and graze myself up :mad:). for special occasions, i wear heels if i know there isnt much walking or dancing to be done. i do however like low wedges under trousers for a bit of posture flattery
