It’s a little unknown fact, that it was men that first wore heels and made them fashionable. But for the past 200 years or so, this hasn’t been the case. In spite of that, it hasn’t stopped male designers like Christian Louboutin, Manolo Blahnik, Giuseppe Zanotti, Stuart Weitzman, Gianvitto Rossi and Steve Madden from holding the top spots in the very lucrative heel sector of the shoe industry…a shoe they don’t even wear! Which makes me wonder-what is the fascination with men and high heels?
We recently sat down with our returning champ (we’ve interviewed him 2 times before), Ray Deforest. A man who wears heels & his pride-proudly! See what he had to say about men AND women wearing heels.
Ladies, what say you?
