    Default Manheels: How do you feel about high heels for men?

    Hold onto your heels, ladies—there's a new customer in town. Men have been wearing heels for as long as we women have, from the imperial courts of ancient China to the gilded halls of Versailles. And it seems like as women's shoes are getting higher, men's shoes are also adding on a few inches. We're of the camp that's all about a little stacked heel on a classic-looking boot—anything strappier or skinnier, and man heels start looking a little campy. Whether it's Zac Posen's subtle dog walking shoes to one Fashion Week goer's towering Nina Riccis, there's a height for every dude out there. But are we just too wacky? Can you not get enough of meels, or are they just unappetizing?

    I'm okay with this. I always thought it was a little unfair that women could wear nearly everything and men could only wear shirt, pants, shorts, suit. I bet any guy wearing this will get some strange looks, but if he can handle it, that's okay. It'll probably just be worn by skinny jeaned hipsters.

    Also, I love the guy in the hammer pants. He looks like a computer engineer who was chosen at the last minute to be a stand-in for his sister, the runway model. He looks none too pleased about it.

    ^ My thoughts exactly. Look out for more photos of him in the "Hot Men" thread.

    Hell cowboy boots can have the same effect-adding several inches. Just wear those or lifts in regular shoes.

    NO! to 'high heels' for guys. It is bad enough that women wear these foot-torturing devices. Why spread the pain to the other half of the population?
