Times Online: man heels. Yes. Man heels. Because the men folk want to be Lady Gaga too! Apparently, we're shifting into a glam rock/disco second coming or something because dandy style elevated shoes for guys are starting to show up in a big way. Can I confess that for some reason this makes me totally giddily excited? Like, I just want to see it and pretend like maybe the outside world has become the amalgamation of decades that I live in in my head. !!! Yes. I'm geeking out about the slight chance that men who are not dragged out may be walking down a city block in heels.
Style site Refinery29 has a feature on the man heel as well. You can thank them for being the source of most of my picture scrounging to shed some light on this little Times noteworthy tidbit. I honestly don't see why men shouldn't wear heels. They can balance, right? And besides, outside of sneakers, the options for formal man shoes are super bland. So, who says they're gender specific?
