Walking a mile in her shoes: Tips on high heel safety -- from a guy in black pumps

Rebel Staff

Over the last 10 years, over 123,000 high heel related injuries have been reported.

The Rebel's Matt Philips talked to women outside Toronto's Bata Shoe Museum about what precautions they take to protect their feet -- while wearing a pair of high heels himself.

PS: He doesn't quite make it a whole mile...

Listen, folks, the secret to comfortable heels is price. You pay for comfortable heels. If you pay enough, you get high but sturdy and pointed but roomy. It’s all in the price.

@ linda cayer

S/he (wynne that is) looks more manly than most men I know.

S/he would look better in rubber boots covered in cow schitte or in steel toed work boots. Probably closer to what s/he truly is.

Sorry – real men do not wear heels.

And any woman who wants to wear them can wear them.

But I do not ever want to hear how your feet hurt.

I am not forcing you to wear them.

I do not only NOT care what you have on your feet, I do not want to hear you complain about it.

It is not my problem – it is yours ladies.

You do it to yourself.

Matt looks better in heels than Kathleen Wynne.

Funny! It take a special type of personality to go out in public and do what he does.

“We can’t say ‘dyke’. We can’t even say ‘lesbian’. It’s ‘women in comfortable shoes’…” (Good Morning Vietnam).

Ginger Rogers could match every dance move of Fred Astair backwards in high heels……:-)
