Fancy Feminine French Heel Stockings For Men

Updated on October 16, 2009

Pictured to the right is the always lovely Cyndie, who inspired this article with these gorgeous stockings and heels. What is Cyndie wearing? A lovely pair of french heel stockings!

French heel stockings hearken from a time when wearers would quite often wear through the heel of their stockings. Stockings were therefore reinforced with extra nylon, which created a very distinctive shape which could sometimes be observed above the wearer's shoe. Upon discovering that this often occurred, some clever lingerie designer designed to make a feature out of it. French heel stockings therefore climb pyramid-style up the leg. Other similar styles include the Cuban heel and the Havana heel. Havana heels apparently finish higher and more pointily than Cuban heels which are more kind of chunky and whatnot.

Soon enough, as with the seams on the backs of stockings, this 'ooh I can see your heels' look became associated with femininity, and although as defunct as the VCR, french heel stockings are still made today for people wishing to recapture femininity lost in the days of yore, before women abandoned pretty things and started wearing pants made out of sheet metal everyday.

Secrets In Lace makes yet another appearance today, because it is almost impossible to overlook their stockings line. They're expensive, but great. If nothing else, take inspiration from these styles and seek out more reasonably priced stockings elsewhere on the Internet, or perhaps locally. Or save up and sue them for being so damn irresistible. That's what I would do.

Diamond Back Seam

Diamond back seam stockings matched with a french heel create a symphony of geometry that is at once feminine and mathematical. These are interesting french heel stockings and perhaps even advanced level french heel stockings. Maybe you're not ready for these stockings yet. Maybe you are. Go at your own pace.

Premier French Heel

The premier model also happens to be the most simple model. Coincidence? I think not. This is the kind of thinking that transforms a small coffee into a tall coffee. Don't blame the lingerie, blame the soulless marketers. Blame them!

On the other hand, these are the perfect beginner french heel stockings. Not too much decoration to distract from the french heeleness of it all. You can handle these stockings. Yes you can.

Dita's French Heel

You know something's good when Dita von Teese is happy to hawk it. The queen of burlesque approves of French heel stockings and really, I think this is all we need to know about them. Clearly this lingerie has the power to net stars like Marilyn Manson, and that's one big gothic fish. That heel reinforcement totally works.

      Sey stocking are things rarely seen these days.

      I love the look and would love to wear some but it's just nothing without the rest of the wardrobe and heels.

      Thanks for bringing the wonderful world of sexyness to us all.
