High heels were originally worn by men.

I thought high-stylin’ pimps were wearing heels in the ‘70s? Don’t be racist and give credit where it’s due, LOL.

To Louis Quinze the honour goes
For donning heels with pointy toes
But when those shoes began to vex
He passed them to the other sex

You all are using celebs as examples! The article is about how it’s becoming the norm for everyday men to wear them.

I've been wearing them since 2019. Not pointy stilettos, but Cuban-heeled boots. My highest are 3.75 inches. I appreciate that's not sufficient for everyone, but it's plenty for me!

Yeah sure r10. Everyday men love their heels.

Wigs, makeup, heels, skirts etc. all originally wore by men at many points throughout history.
In modern times, men wearing certain things designed FOR women and with women in mind, tend to look stupid, try-hard and ugly as fuck. Design your own heels or whatever FOR men and, IF you can pull the look off, then congrats, but otherwise it looks dumb.

R10, it was the norm for every day men to wear them in the 1970s. Possibly not for work etc but for nights out. I remember my older brother, male cousins and their friends wearing platform boots and shoes.

Glam rock pulled this look 50 years ago. Leetle twinkly stars today want to claim it as their own. They invented rien du tout.

Men are the flamboyant sex. They put themselves out there for attention and take risks to prove their status. Women on the other hand were always expected to be demure. Even in the animal kingdom you notice male animals strut around with big manes and colorful feathers to attract mates. Throughout the history, the male body was sexualized, perceived as beautiful and put on display in sculptures and painting. Men who are fashionable and carry themselves with pride and swagger were always perceived as more attractive. You see this from tribesmen who wear makeup and feathers, wealthy male aristocrats with wigs and high-hells, working class dandies, greasers with pompadours and shiny cars, rock stars and rappers.

Heeled shoes for men never went away. They just aren't as high as women's heels. Boring, sheltered suburban people with no fashion sense think Lil Nas and Harry Styles are groundbreaking. Go to any city and you will see fashion-conscious well-groomed men.

Shawn can't really pull of the leather and chains look
He's more the see-through lace and frilly bows type

I think Lil Nas is too much of a dork. He doesn't register as feminine either. He is completely gay but just panders to what people expect. I still like him though. Harry is just a trashy looking white boy who looks better in hoodies and sweatpants. Neither pull off androgyny. Androgyny is not just playing dress-up. It's all attitude and confidence. Also possessing a certain physical beauty and presence. You don't need to wear dresses, makeup and heels to be androgynous.

Harry Styles has been wearing heeled boots since 2014, way before Shawn and Nas came on the scene.

Maybe men who travel in rarefied circles can get away with it, but in most places people will give men who wear anything else than trainers a funny look.

I'm still waiting the freedom to wear open toed sandals with my hairy legs and not be judged. Feet shaming is not ok

Odd because sneakers did not become common until the mid 20th century and mostly kids and teens and athletes wore them. I think it was the 80s or 90s when they became okay for regular adult men in casual settings. I wear oxford shoes and boots a lot and nobody thinks that's weird.

Women complain 24/7 about how uncomfortable and painful wearing heels is (yet they still do it anyway, "for men" they say, even though men will hit on anything with a pulse), while guys are constantly height-shamed (which is just about the most unfair thing in the world, since it's something they have ZERO control over). So, yeah, I do think high heels for men should totally make a comeback, or at least really chunky sneakers with tall platforms like those cute Buffalo Boots should be made available for everyone (and especially CHEAPER). Leg lengthening is still too goddamn painful and expensive

I saw a comment about the very unfortunate looking Tory MP who announced he was trans (or planned to be) this week.
Someone asked "is he going to start dressing as a woman" and a woman replied "you mean is he going to wear trainers and jeans like most overweight women his age".

Genderless? In whose world? Not everyday people. Besides, with my height, I'd have to bend in half to fit through doorways.

No man over 5ft 9 should attempt to transition and no woman under 5ft 7 should attempt to be a trans man.

Men wearing platform shoes is not the same as women wearing high HEELS.
Show me a man wearing stiletto heels and I'll show you a drag queen.

OP Men were wearing platforms (high heels) back in the 70s. This is nothing new.

Harry Styles wears heels on nearly every public occasion but it's Niall Horan who needs them with his stumpy 5ft 7 frame.

Mods in the 60s wore them as well. So it’s not a new trend. When I look around though, I only see men wearing sneakers (or flip-flops in summertime.) I don’t even see men wearing loafers or brogues out of office hours anymore. Not even middle-aged or older men.

Harry Styles was the first man on the cover of Vogue, grandad. He's 28 but I guess that's a kid to a 90-year-old. Time for your warm milk and cookies.

Nobody knows who the fuck this is but he'll for sure be indistinguishable from all the other scrawny ugly kpop guys.
