It says something about a man's confidence when he steps out in public in a pair of heels. The wearing of heels has a long history that dates back to the 18th century. A portrait of King Louis XIV of France paints a picture of him in luxurious textiles with a pair of red-heeled shoes. David Bowie was a later advocate of this trend along with Rick James and Prince. These dandy styles are back on a rise and can be seen worn by Harry Styles, Kayne West and Justin Bieber.
Take another look at the trend on the runway with Hood by Air Fall 2016 and Maison the Faux Fall 2017.
