Where to Buy High Heeled Shoes for Men
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.

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.
