Where to Buy High Heeled Shoes for Men

Updated on June 9, 2012

High heeled shoes for men are IN. It may be a bold fashion statement to make, but many men are breathing a sigh of relief that the fashionistas have finally accepted it is fine for men to wear high heeled shoes.

Which is just as well, as thousands of men throughout Europe have taken to the streets wearing high heels, barely noticeable below long legged trousers and pants, that look great should you happen to notice.

They even have a fashion term for it - meels, men's heels.

Traditionally, only cross-dressers and diminutive stars of TV, film and the music industry, wore high heels, or sought out suppliers.

Even then, high heels for men were either uncomfortable or ultra-expensive. Men have a different shaped foot than women, and while some men were lucky enough to find a woman's high heel shoes a good fit, the majority didn't.

This left paying a cobbler to design and make a pair specifically for the man, which raised the price level out of most people's budgets.

Now, however, with an increased demand for high heeled shoes for men, many High Street stockists are including a range for men.

If you are a man who is interested in buying high heeled shoes, I hope you will find something on this page that will be useful to you.

As well as a few stockists of high heeled shoes for men, I have included links to discussion forums relating to high heels for men, and other sites that will be able to sell directly to you.

Pimp Adult Shoes

Amazon.com are one such stockist.

With a world-wide clientele, Amazon will ship almost anywhere in the world.

I found the shoes featured here on Amazon. Tell me what you think? Aren't these just fabulous platform shoes?

They come in three sizes.

Small (size 8 - 9) Medium (size 10 - 11) Large (size 12 - 13)

They are made of a beautifully soft and comfortable leather, and are hard-wearing.

AND you have a choice of colors as you can see from the picture below.

Online Stockists of Men's High Heeled Shoes

http://www.dragshoes.co.uk/index.php - Many men are wearing high heels now, who are not in drag, but are all male, straight men, who just want to feel good.

Wearing high heel shoes are comfortable once you get used to them, and they make you taller which is always a good thing, even if you are already tall. See over the crowds no matter where you go, and be seen. This lets you get the best view at rock concerts and other places that are heaving with bodies, where your vision is obstructed by those around you.

All at High street prices which is affordable to all.

http://www.heels4men.net/ is a discussion board, where, if you are truly interested in high heels for men, you can browse around and read of other men's experiences of finding high heeled shoes to fit. This could be invaluable to men who have not yet delved into the wonderful world of high heels.

http://www.hhplace.org/ is also a forum for men discussing high heels and where to buy them.

http://www.spanishhighheels.com/ Here you can buy all leather high heeled shoes made to measure. Based in the shoe-making region of Spain, they will ship worldwide no matter where you are, but you will have to wait up to 52 days after ordering (to give them time to make the shoes, after your payment has cleared). Well worth ordering early.

      Sorry, only just saw this - I just sort of assumed that men would not want to shop in a ladies shoe department. But hey, why not?

      Hi Isabel! Perhaps an overlooked option for some men is simply shopping in the women's section of a shoe store. Not only can they try before they buy, but it can be quite a thrilling experience as well.

      You're welcome. I've been trying to source some good outlets of men's heels but there doesn't seem to be that many unless men want girly heels which I don't think most do.

      my preference for men is a larger heel and prefereably ankle boot, which are less feminine and suit amny males. I wear ankle boots in public, sometimes with jeans, sometimes with the boot well covered and when I feel a little braver, then the bottoms of the jeans turned up about 100mm. Ankle boots are very comfortable to walk long distances in. I often walk 3 or 54 kilomters at a time and the longest distance at one time about 8 kilometres. heel tips last about 100 kilomters and the boot have fallen apart after the the third retip.

      thanks for the hub

      Its interesting how men have always used a few extra inches on the rubber soles of their shoes but now the fashion world is taking it to an extreme with the stilettos.

      The guardian covered an article on famous men who wore stacked heels and I thought it was pretty clever, especially for men who want a few extra inches in height.

      Here was some of the famous short celebrity men on the list: (who actually were wearing low rise boots or shoes with a stacked heel)

      Simon Cowell

      French president Nicolas Sarkozy

      Irish singer Bono of U2

      Tom Cruise

      Mel Gibson

      Mick Jagger
