Shoe fetish or exquisite fashion sense?

One can never have enough shoes. -- Women

You've got way too many shoes! -- Men

So, who's right?

And if, in the forest alone you break the 4.5 inch heel off your $5,000 Manolo Blahnik sandals and there's no one to hear it, will this question still make sense?

Last week my housekeeper and I were oohing and aahing over all those amazing clothes that do not fit me since the weight gain post-herniated discs. That's always fun. . .NOT. . .because I love clothes, am told I have impeccable taste, and love to dress up. But more than all this, I have a passion for shoes. More specifically, high heels and boots. I have literally dozens of pairs. An entire section of my closet with nothing but gorgeous shoes and boots.

They are, alas, mostly another casualty of the back injury. At a size 16-18, I don't exactly balance like a ballerina on a pair of 4" spikes, y'all! So. . .they've sort of been covered up, all these shelves of shoes. There's the hanger with several of my scarves hanging over them. Another hanger with my swim suits and cover-ups. One with all my belts. And then, my black, Flamenco-style pashmina on the top hanger. All sort of forming this fashionable barrier between me and those lovely, unwearable shoes.

I ADORE shoes. Fuck me pumps and boots. Boots and fuck me pumps. Yum. Yum. Yum.

Now, please don't misconstrue. I do NOT want to perform any sort of oral sex upon my shoes. Nor anything sexual at all really--other than the effect my petite feet and lovely, thick, rounded ankles and calves have on a man. But I do love them.

I got the latest announcement today from net-a-porter that Jimmy Choo's fall collection is out. I had to go right there and just drool over the shoes I can neither afford nor, reasonably wear. The one pictured above is a mere $895 per pair. Hell, y'all let's all order a dozen!

That is, I think, how I got drawn into designing skins for the Maxis game, The Sims. I live vicariously through my Simmies and they all have fabulous wardrobes and shoes, daaaaahling!

Can a shoe fetish be a shoe fetish if there's no sexual connotation to it? Or is it just fashion sense? Or, should I speak with my care provider about upping my dosage of Fukitol?

Do you love shoes? Do you have too many?

And men, do you like a woman in heels and boots?

Do tell!

I'm sorry, I can't really answer your question, because I an totally neutral on the subject of shoes and clothing (I have to take a friend shopping with me when I need new stuff, I have so little interest in the whole business) - I suspect all female-genes somehow got sucked out at birth.

But I have a cyber-fuck buddy who has the biggest fetish for shoes ever. And when we are on IM, I have to give him a detailed description of the shoes I am wearing in our current scenario (and of course any other women who may be involved ) before we can get onto the sex.

It's definitely sexual for him though - he likes strappy 4" heels that he can hold onto while he's giving it to me doggy-fashion.

I can answer for him on the boots question: he's not that interested in boots at all. Shame, because boots are the one item of footwear that do interest me. I have some nice knee-length ones with straps up the back (but an inner zip for easy access) which have a kind of "demure-kinky" look to them.

Blogito ergo sum.

*raising left hand and right hand over heart* I love shoes.
I discovered you can find amazing shoes at thrift stores. My daughter and I went to Value Village and everything was 50 percent off!
I got 4 pairs of shoes. One two daughters told me they would disown me if I wore them to teach school....they are 4 inch beautiful platform sandals....( I DID wear them to school and my middle schoolers LOVED THEM *satisfied smile*)
But how could I pass for only 2.50 or 3.50 a pair?!

Those expensive ones are just beyond my means.
I've never had a man friend who had a shoe fetish. Though my former lover really appreciated a sexy pair of hose and heels. (sorta miss
maybe I'll manifest a new lover who can appreciate this *weg*

Anyway...YOU GO GIRL! lol

I love a woman that will wear heels and/or boots. I like the way they bring out the calf mussles and give the legs a nicer shape.

mmm... I'd kill for some wide-calf knee-high boots (round toe, 1" platform and thick 2-3/4" heel please)

Oh, yeah. . .shoes rule! And boots.

I have to say, even as a straight woman, there are few things sexier than a woman in garter belt, stockings and high heels. It's just a classicly beautiful look.

"I can't balance my fat ass up on a heel to save my life!"

Yes, Queen, this is me, too. Between gaining 90 pounds following my back injury and the injury itself, it's just not possible. Now, if all I have to do is stand still and look pretty, fine. But if I had to walk in them--even across the room. . .well, it wouldn't be nice. But, I've lost 20 pounds in the last couple of months, so maybeeeeeee. . .it is a dream I have.

OMG, Song. . .I would've lost my mind at a sale like that. Who needs food! Give me more shoes!

Princess, I would love to see more--and stylish--wide-calf boots! Even when I'm just a size 10 or 12, my calves are big. Very muscular from riding horses and marching band as a kid, and step aerobics and weight training as an adult. It's a sad reality that my calves are now the same size my waist was when I married Toad back in '87!

Since I love women to wear high heels, I am happy to support the view that a woman can never have too many SEXY shoes! Am I betraying my fellow men by saying this, many of whom suffer from empty bank balances and no closet space? Yep, probably... oh well, sorry about that

Personally, I think that high heel pumps and knee-length boots are particularly hot.

Sure the credit cards have to take a pounding... but it's worth it, right?
