Man-Heel: High Heels for Men

men have been wearing discreet "lifts" for a long time, but
this is something else. Behold, the "meel" or man-heel, the
newest fashion trend to hit the streets.

Hairy legs and stilettos? Now that’s a shoe-in for a blog post on Neatorama:

Mr. Wagner was otherwise dressed in men’s clothing: a loose-fitting
black tank top with a pair of tapered black pants. He had a neatly trimmed
beard, and a pair of black-framed glasses sat perched on his nose.

“I never leave the house with less than eight inches on my
feet,” he said cheerfully. “It helps you see over the cattle.”

Mr. Wagner was not the only man wearing high heels (but no other
women’s clothing) that night. At Mr. Black, Luke Nero, a promoter,
estimated that 10 or more men were traversing the dance floor in a pair
of pumps. “I went to a loft party yesterday, and there was a guy
in normal shorts, normal tank and really hot red pumps. That’s
it!” he said. “Everyone was like, ‘Oh my God, I love
those shoes!’ ”
