Maybe let women, instead of homos, design them.

ryant123: there their theyre: Also, straight men don't give a damn what shoes women are wearing.

It's the same with makeup. Most of the effort women put into their appearance isn't to impress men. It's to compete with other women and make them feel bad.



Yep.

Soymilk: Notabunny: mllawso: ladyfortuna: I am in fact quite sad that one of the soles started to peel off a little the other day. I need those boots so I don't break my ankle hiking around the giant hill we call a campus.

Spend some money on a nice pair of boots that can be resoled. They cost more upfront, but you don't have to deal with breaking them in more than once.

Boy, that's the truth. Not only will you save money (resoling is cheaper than buying a new pair), but you'll be so much more comfortable.

But if you live in a warm climate, boots are just too hot :-(


Yeah, it's tough to get around that. I wore boots to work for about 6 or 7 years. Red Wings with steel toes and steel sole inserts. On hot days I'd take them off during breaks or when I was in the office.

I know a woman with deformed toes & when she 1st showed me it was shocking to put it nicely. However, she was born that way... she didn't mutilate herself.

Catlike Typist: Of course, once you have toes removed for "cosmetic purposes," your feet will only look good in those shoes for which you have had yourself mutilated. And not sandals, ever again.


Or barefoot while at the beach or swimming or coming in/out of the shower or going to bed....

Women doing crazy things for shoes is not new...
expositorywritingwiki.wikispaces.com
Chinese foot binding is the practice of breaking the toes and bending them underneath the sole of the foot. After breaking the toes, they take a 10 ft long bandage and bind the feet squeezing them into tiny shoes to maintain their shape.

So my little sister, and in fact all of the XX's from Grandma down share the same foot affliction below their big toe on both feet is a protrusion, as if one of the knuckles is too big.
Woo! found a pic, kinda: www.clevelandfai.com 
I don't know if this is the same problem, but all of their feet look like that and it's because of a bone growth. From my sister to my cousins to my aunt even, they all complain bitterly because they say it makes finding and wearing shoes extremely difficult and painful. If these surgeries were able to correct that deformity, I know all my kin would go for it in a heartbeat to make their feet hurt less.
 
2012-11-21 02:10:02 AM
A good pair of shoes can really make or break an outfit.

And high heels can make even dumpy legs look great. Above 3 inch heels and you're golden. Below that, and you're probably not going to look your best.

Don't chop your toes off, though. Just get shoes that wear well, and don't wear them for hours on end.

Shyla: Barricaded Gunman: Ugh...a thread that had a lot of sexy foot photo potential, and all we've seen are grotesque mutilations.

Feet are gross. That's the one fetish I really will never understand.

Also, I'm almost 5'10 and wearing heels makes me feel like an NBA player, so never really had to worry about that.


GOD DAMNED RIGHT!

No matter how much you take care of them, file down the callouses, paint the nails, etc, they're still bones and cartilage wrapped in a very thin and veiny layer of skin.(unless you're really fat) on top, and have thick and unforgiving skin on the bottom.

I think the attraction is a evolutionary throwback to when a bit of exposed ankle was sexy because it was all you really saw below the neckline.

Feet are gross, and I'd prefer not to look at them, much less touch them. They are not made for fun, they're made for function. Most people's feet see a life of being rode hard and put away wet, so to speak, and it shows.

They are the one part of everyone that is in contact with the ground for half of your waking hours, if they're not wrapped up in a sock/shoe and sweating from it, so either way they're dirty as all get out.

Women who make a habit of wearing heals are masochists, and women who make a habit of wearing heals and want
a footrub after work are sado-masochists.

For me, the sexiest thing about a foot is when it has a thick sock on it, even during sex. Ever go at it and get a scratch on a shin from a toenail? Get a toe caught in a loose thread?

That said, I don't have a sick foot phobia like some. I've got a nephew(two actually) that will get up and run away if it looks like a dirty sock or a foot will even get near them. Of course we tease them mercilessly(they're on the floor at a family gathering, you raise your foot when they're not looking and rub it on their arm, they go farking crazy, everyone laughs), but I can understand where it comes from.

Also, do yourself a favor and get boots that *fit*. Being as I grew up barefoot (and prefer barefoot to any shoe) I have wide, splayed toes -- thus I have to get boots with a wide toe-box. Uncomfortable shoes suck -- wear a prospective pair around the store for a while before you drop good money on something that doesn't fit right.

Heh. It actually increases the depth of your feet by a lot, or at least has for me, both in increased arch height and building all the wee muscles that support the arch. Most shoes with straps or high vamps don't fit across my foot at all. It's only gotten worse since i started wearing FiveFingers and ZemGears, and even most of the Five Fingers styles don't fit.

Cutting away bone to relieve constant pain (usually due to ill-fitting shoes, but not always) is not vanity. Bunions don't just look ugly, they feel awful too. Not everyone has exactly the same bunion problems, but some people really do need surgery to live without pain.

Why, did I ever tell you the tale of Paul Bunyon's surgery? It took two swimming pools of brandy just to calm him down, for starters. They had to use the spire from the Empire State Building as a needle, and it took half the drugs in downtown Detroit to knock him out. There were some unhappy junkies that day, I'll tell you what. The blood from the procedure created the Potomac River. It's cleaned up a bit since then, but only a little. But it was worth it. Once the whole thing was over, Pauline Bunyon lived a long, happy, female life. That blue ox wasn't the only babe after that surgery! What happened to the...leftovers? Well, you only THOUGHT the Washington Monument was made of marble. Now, you mind find this story tough to believe, but every word is 100% true.

mllawso: Uncomfortable shoes suck -- wear a prospective pair around the store for a while before you drop good money on something that doesn't fit right.


Even at that, you never know how a random pair of shoe's will loosen. I've got slightly odd feet(almost a wide but not quite), so you go snug normal shoes and they never loosen. Get a different pair and they loosen, and loosen, and then you're swimming in them. Shoe starts comphy, but you need more arch support, so the next support is comphy, feels good in the store, a week later the big arch support feels like it's trying to snap your foot in half, slowly inflating over time...
Buy a pair with a tiny bit of room at the toe, after a month if feels like an absolute cavern, but a pair snug at the toe and they never give, but instead drive your big toenail down into your flesh, driving to become ingrown.
The padding above the sole falls flat really quick, the seams inexplicably burst, the tongue has a cant to it and rides to the side through the day and ends up inside the shoe on the outside of your foot.
Where the tongue attaches, there's a seam(or a random seam on the outside by your small toe base knuckle), and it rubs the hell out of your toe knuckles.

AAAGGGHHH

I hate buying shoes, it's always a farking gamble. It's why shoe inserts are such big business.

Even socks, within the same brand, sometimes even stitch, some will inexplicably fray, some will have seams that rub wrong, some will have loose strings that entangle your toes like some kind of sentient predator, some sill slip really tight when you put on the shoes and not loosen, effectively like wrapping your toes under your feet. Some will loosed or even start to slip off your foot while inside your shoe, so you get folds in the sides or extra fabric bunched in the end of the shoe.. Of course, I blame the shoe companies here, as the materials used don't always slide easily on the sock, some almost act like velcro with normal white athletic socks. WTF are they thinking!?!?

I wear a size 12W shoe and can't be bothered to shop for heels. So I pretty much wear men's jogging shoes, size 10.5. Of course, that is the most popular men's size and hard to find. I can find ugly, ill-fitting and pain-inducing ladies 'dress shoes' in my size at Payless, or I can shop via catalog for stilettos, stripper heels, and thigh high boots in my size and width, but I am already tall and not in need of six inch lucite platform stilettos. Every catalog I have seen featuring large-size women's shoes, you can tell it is targeted toward transgendered males. The sizes go up to 17+. So it would still be buying men's shoes. I can't win.

However, even having large bony feet, I still have stilettos that I love and wear all the time. Most of the time I buy them a half size large and get supportive inserts for them. I would never EVER cut off a toe or consider this.

Of course, at my height, I can't wear stilettos in Chinatown without people running away and screaming "GODZIRRA!!" but that's neither here nor there. *shrug*

You know, I'm all for some petite woman gently "fisting"(more of a folded hand, and not very far either) another vaginally, on occasion, but that takes it to the extreme. There was literally an inside-out anus for crying out loud.

Yeah, I did. Incidentally, I think a really good example of the creepiness I was talking about (as opposed to the playfullness you, me and gryfalcon had) can be seen in the thread about Obama posing with the Olympic gymnast. Linked for your convenience Though, I doubt it's necessary as I suspect you know what I'm talking about.

Anyways, back to why hooking is illegal? It's to keep women down. Just like the abortion and healthcare debates (that I swear to god is disgraceful to be having in the century, as we resolved all this 40 years ago =/) It's a power play to ensure that men maintain their advantageous position in the the balance of power with women. There is seriously no reason for prostitution to be illegal. As George Carlin put it, selling is legal and f*cking is legal, but selling f*cking isn't!
I understand the fears of women being taken advantage of, but they strike me as shallow fears and something that regulation would easily take care of. Were these activities legal the women could turn to the judicial system when they have issues instead of having to settle things extra-legally.

If I can draw a parallel, in many ways is is similar to the war on drugs. When there is a dispute in the dealing on black-market substances, both parties must settle their disputes with violence as they have no other recourse. Keeping prostitution illegal results in the same problems.

Prostitution is illegal so that men as a whole can maintain their advantage over women, by virtue of being a man. No other reason makes sense.
