High heels for men can be tricky. The list of challenges can be a bit long. Right out of the gate, finding larger sizes of womens shoes can be tough as most stores whether brick and mortar or online don’t carry sizes larger than 12. Another tricky part when it comes to men in heels is the learning curve of walking in them especially if you’re new to crossdressing. But just because men have larger feet doesn’t mean the search is impossible. Glamour Boutique for example has high heeled shoes for men up to sizes 17. As long as you size correctly (2 sizes up from your male shoe size), you should have no problem. We also understand that if you are new to high heels and mens stilettos in general it can be overwhelming on what to choose. Let us give you a hand with your feet with this handy guide to getting high heels and stilettos.
How to find the right type of high heels for men
Finding the right pair of high heels can become overwhelming due to the amount of styles, type of shoe and heel size. Even if we concentrate on just the shoes available at Glamour Boutique, it’s a lot. We’ve put together a quick help guide for you:
Ankle Strap Heels
Ankle strap heels are a good shoe for those looking to move up to 3 and 4 inch heels but would like some extra support from the ankle straps. It’s a good choice for the intermediate male high heels wearer.
Pumps can vary in heel size from 2 inches to 6 inches. It is a staple shoe in any girls wardrobe as it is a versatile shoe that goes with many styles of outfits.
Ballet Flats are a great shoe for those not really ready for heels or for one reason or another may not be able to wear heels.
Platform Shoes are a fun party shoe for nights out at the club. The platforms help to offset the high heel, giving some extra support.
Stilettos are a staple of sexy shoes. Stilettos can help give your butt a boost and give you a little wiggle when you walk. These are not for beginners as the high heel will take a lot of practice to get used to so be sure you’re a high heel pro or be ready to practice, practice, practice your walk.
The Wedge Sandal is a great shoe for those who want some heels but need some help with support. The sturdy heel will get you comfortable walking in heels without the worry of the practice needed with stilettos.
Boots are a fun alternative to shoes. You can still get a variety of styles and heel sizes with boots. Boots are fun with a short skirt and some stockings or even a longer, full length dress. Boots are also great in colder months as you can still be in heels and stay warmer than in a shoe.
Pairing accessories with high heels for men
Once you find the pair of heels that work for you, you should pick up a few accessories to add to the look. These are pretty basic and a must in some cases.
Ankle Socks – Ankle socks are great with a pair of pumps or sandals.
Stockings – Stockings are a sexy and fun hosiery item. Pair with a garter belt and add your heels and it’s sexy time!
Pantyhose – Many fans of pantyhose love them for the convenience. While not as sexy as a stocking, the pantyhose have come a long way in adding a sexy factor with their many styles.
How to fit high heels for men
It’s so important to get the right sized shoe. If the fit is too tight or too loose, you will have a hard time being comfortable or even being able to walk ok. Luckily, sizing isn’t as hard as you think either. The rule of thumb when searching for the right size shoe is to go two sizes bigger than your male shoe size. For example, if your male shoe size is a 12, then you will want a size 14 womens shoe.

How to walk in high heels for the first time
Now that you have your heels. It’s time to start walking and getting those feet ready for heel life. Here is a quick little list of ways to get walking like a pro over time.
- If you don’t have a lot of experience walking in heels or are worried about falling, start with an easier shoe. Start with a wider or shorter heel.
- Practice wearing heels around the house, on the carpet or in the grass for a few hours at a time.
- Do foot stretches and/or wear progressively higher heels for gradually longer periods to help your feet get accustomed to the higher angles you’re feet will be in when wearing heels.
- When walking try putting your heel down first followed by the heel
