So I started browsing the market for heeled shoes for men and I came across this. I must say, it does it's job wonderfully, which is to add something like 3.5 inches to my height. One of the things I originally worried about it that the heel might be a bit too high and will come across as feminine looking. But I didn't need to worry, as most of the &quot;height&quot; of this shoe is added inside the shoe, so the outer heel isn't that tall.
The only problem I had was that their sizes run a bit too small. The length fits perfectly, but because of the higher heel the top of my foot is pushed painfully against the shoe. So my advice, get 1 size bigger. I eventually returned mine and got a bigger size and then I opted to get the boots version and this version felt a lot snugger. Here's the boot version:
In the end, I still felt a bit of discomfort after wearing it for a prolonged period of time, but I don't think it's a fault of the shoe. I guess it's more like the standard pain women feel after wearing high heels for a prolonged duration.
So do I wear it everyday? Hell no. I wear sneakers and flat heeled leather shoes for that. But for those formal occasions when my wife really dresses up and wears high heels, this pair of shoes is invaluable.
