@merg Him: thief! You: lucky! Me: craving the boots in #1.

At what height does "high heeled" begin? Based on these snippets, cowboy boots are high heeled.

Lili L.

@Hot mayonnaise I actually sort of count cowboy boots as high-heeled (for men). They add at least an inch, right?

@Hot mayonnaise My guess is that the descriptor maybe has more to do with the level of foppishness rather than the actual heel height. Sort of like how cowboy boots aren't considered high heels, but boots worn by Prince (God love him) are.

@Hot mayonnaise yes I think a more accurate title might be simply be "Men in Heels"
or even MORE accurately "Men in Fly Footwear"

I recognized so many of these based on the thumbnails. In every art history class I ever took (~4987475 credits worth), I was always like "damn, check out homeboy's shoes"

Those black boots in #3 look pretty slick.

Why do people always say "The King of France is bald" when they could say "The King of France wears high heels" instead?

Based on this, I think silver shoes with jewel-studded buckles need to come back in style. For chicks, that is.

So many of those are awesome. But their hosiery makes them even better.

I love the Hairpin for curating stuff like this. I would be nice to have the titles of the paintings, no?

Lili L.

@Tami Twarog@twitter If you click through, the title of the painting shows up in the URL! That was the best we could do. :(
