Kinky Boots

Well, if I’m gonna kick ass, I gotta have a decent pair of boots, right? I LOVED the 2005 movie “Kinky Boots”. I love when they make Lola the first pair of boots that’ll bear the weight of a man, and she rejects them as disgustingly ugly. She wants “three feet of red leather tubular sex”.

The movie’s based on a true story, the story of “Divine”; and Wiki says the shoe factory’s story, turning to making fetish footwear to survive in a market dominated by cheap mass-produced shoes from China, was featured in an episode of a BBC documentary series called “Trouble at the Top”.

The factory is staffed by the people who've worked there for decades, some of them, or their parents did. He's trying to explain to them what they're going to be making, and a tiny, elderly Japanese lady says to him: "Look to the heel, young man... Sex is in the heel... Stilettos require constant balance from the upper leg causing the muscles of the backside to tense and appear pert and ready for mating."

You can see the red leather boots on Lola, about a minute into this video – it’s not the whole clip of the walkway scene, and it will likely ruin the end of the movie for you, if you haven’t figured it out already.

I want me those boots.

Damn!! I forgot to put in the Wiki link, and if I go back and edit, I'll have to reformat everything. Blogger doesn't have the font I like. Here you go:

Dear Friend says: "99.9% of all men* surveyed for the last 2,000 years agree: women (or trannies!) in high heels are HOT!" ;-)

I hate to shop, but I'm thinking I'm going to the shoe store this weekend...

*This reflects his unshakable belief that even gay men think high heels look good on the "girls." ;-)

I love the boots, too, Sherry -- there's gotta be a class to learn how to walk in those heels.

Doxy, ask DF if it makes a difference how long or short the skirt is?

Thanks, Jan -- I love my sisters-in-law and my nieces and nephews -- it's bound to be good. I should check The Weather Network's website and see what to pack.
