It’s been on the radar lately that more men have been wearing heels. Whether or not they are attached to boots or whether you are working those new Louboutin’s, this trend is fast growing. I personally say “Go for it!” when I see photos of this trend. Sometimes I have to express my pure jealousy for these men who can walk around longer than I can and with much better balance.
It seems that it has even entered the fashion world with editorials in various magazines and even Lenny Kravitz is sporting some of Rick Owen’s famous mens wedge creations. However, this is not the first time men have worn heels. Even as far back as the time of Louis the XIV men wore heels, and even had designers create custom pairs. Designers are constantly using menswear for their female collections so it was just a matter of time before the roles reversed.
