My Bootie (the footwear) Craze


Sally Stone

Recommended Posts

Yes, I'm speaking about footwear.  Anyway, found these booties at Torrid.com and had to have them.  Torrid offers shoe and boots up to Size 13 Wide.  The issue for me with shafted boots is that most in my size are also for very wide legs and my gams are not.

Sally, I am absolutely in love with these too, and 13 wide is my size in most brands! I believe I will need them too and thanks for the lead on that site for shoes/boots that might work for me. My winter go-to look has been a sweater dress, leggings, and boots with a coat and scarf when going outside.

 

Love,

~Audrey.

I like those! Are they lace-up or is that for show? I have the same trouble with footwear as I do for bras. They assume that if my FOOT is size 13, then my calves must be the size of watermelons. And they're not. My legs are nice and toned thank you very much.

 

Hugs!

Audrey, your winter go to look sounds adorable.  Those booties would go very nicely.

 

Jackie, like you, my legs are toned, so those wide leg boots just don't work.  I love tall boots, but finding my foot size combined with a normal shaft width is next to impossible.  This is the main reason I've transitioned to booties, and well, I do like the way they look.

Timely post.  I was just looking at riding boots and a little worried about my legs being thin.  I ended up ordering these.  They come in wide with a 14" diameter.  If I were a younger, smaller, richer girl, I'd need a boot closet.

I love these too, Ann! Where did you find them? I love the longer boot length look so much. Well, stimulus money, it was nice knowing you... ☺️

Also, yes I have bigger feet but not bigger calves. This is a tricky thing for footwear designers. My calves are swimming in my Hunter wellie boots, but they're great for the rain as long as I have warm socks under.

 

Love,

~Audrey.

I got them at Macy's online.  I guess I'm lucky being a size 11...it seems like a lot slimmer pickings above that, but some styles come bigger.  I found them by googling "size 11 woman's riding boots'.  Watch for deal of day.  I paid $66 and the next day they were $96.

Yes. And there's some unspoken rule where they have to be ugly. Cute 13's are a real find.

Just got an email from Torrid that my new booties will arrive tomorrow.  Yippee!  I know what footwear I'm wearing this weekend.

 

Jackie, I forgot to mention that these booties have side zippers, so, I suspect the laces are indeed for show, but tomorrow, after I have had time to check out my purchase, I'll report the real story.

Another update, sorry if I seem so repetitive.  Anyway, booties arrived.  They look terrific, sexy in fact, and they are quite comfy.  I suspect I'll be able to wear these all day long without discomfort.  I'll verify that this weekend, however.

 

Jackie, although the booties have side zippers, the laces are also functional, so it is possible to adjust the fit across the instep.  I'll do my best to upload images of them after I return from my "girl's" day out tomorrow.

That sounds like an excellent candidate for the money Torrid sent me this year...

 

Hugs!

      Yes I want a B as well.  But I’m barely moving at this point.  When I take my measurements and look at a size chart I am a D. Ha hai couldn't fill an A   bones    willow  
    • KathyLauren
      I hear you.  Mine are only "A"s.  Almost.  "B"s would be so much better.  At least they would be bigger than my stomach. 🙃  After four years, I guess they are all I am going to get.

      Never played a lot of that. I own a copy, but my group didn't really gel with White Wolf rules. Except maybe Street Fighter. White Wolf writes (or at least wrote, I haven't checked out their products in years) pretty good flavor text.   Hugs!

      That would drive me nuts. The first place I feel the cold is my breasts. Cold air hits my skin and I'm all, "Ahh! My boobs!" I forget how early you are into the process, but every little thing bothered them in the beginning. I used hot compresses to get them to relax. They're better now (at, what? 36 months?), but they're still really sensitive.   You're probably OK, but I'd ask my Endo or my PCP (if they're in the loop) just to be sure. You don't want to take chances with your breasts.   Hugs!

      Hello and Welcome Holly! Live, love, laugh and feel free to explore. Glad to have you join us.
    • Jackie C.
      Salutations @Holly Brandt! Welcome to Transgenderpulse!   So yeah, 55 isn't all that old. I didn't come to terms with my situation until I was 48. I suspected and dreamed for a very long time before I decided to stop hiding and go for it. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner.   A lot of us older gals have trouble with marriage. It's hard to build a stable relationship on a foundation of misdirection. We don't mean it, but if you can't be yourself with your spouse, you're asking for trouble. Some marriages survive, some don't. The odds are basically a coin flip weighted ever so slightly in your favor. I've done dumber things with a smaller chance of success, but I'm glad this particular one worked out for me.   So once again, welcome! We're glad you're here!   Hugs!

      Finally home for a minute. Decent workout at the gym to start my day. I forgot my towel though so I spent more time than I like wiping the machines down with paper. @Jamie68, I was more worried about losing bone density, but I've got a pretty intense workout going on (well, now). I can't say for sure how much upper body strength I lost because I didn't have much when I started, but, depending on what you're talking about, I can squat 180 pretty easily and leg press 450. My chest press is at about 180. I don't deadlift. Well, my straight-leg deadlift was 230 today, but I don't do a full deadlift. I know it's good for me, but I'm afraid I'm going to hurt myself with or without a spot. Probably silly, but there you are. Then again, I'm a giant dork and it's probably a miracle I haven't crippled myself yet. So yeah, research says that after about 9 months on HRT (Well, MtF HRT obviously) you lost around 30% of your performance capability. At around two years you're where a cis-woman would be. Basically we're like big cars with small engines. I'm at about two-and-a-half years so there's nowhere to go but up. Assuming that I keep exercising and taking care of myself.   I got my wife's wedding ring back from the jeweler today. It was shedding diamonds again. Poor thing. The jeweler decided not to charge us anything because they go to where my spouse works for their vet care. I was wound so tight that about had me bawling right there in the store.   Next up is lunch. Lunch will be boring but if I'm going to lose the rest of this weight I need to stick to my diet. I miss food.   After lunch, I'm going to put on some pants (my leggings do nothing to stop the cold) and start shoveling. The snow is heavy and wet, so it should be an absolute joy.   Hugs!

      I think society in general is becoming more accepting with transgender people. I have 2 relatives who just came out recently. The most recent is a 13 yr old niece/nephew starting HRT for FTM transition. Seems awful young, but they've been dealing with dysphoria for years, with therapy. He's lucky to have parents who support him. I couldn't even begin to talk to MY parents about it. They probably would have put me in a mental institution.

      There are three terms on attraction I can think of.   Sapphic, is also known as Woman Loving Woman (WLW), LBPQ (Lesbian, Bisexual, Pansexual, Queer), and Difemina, a woman/woman-aligned gender person who's attracted to women/woman-aligned (exclusively or not)    https://lgbta.wikia.org/wiki/Sapphic     Achillan, also known as men loving men (MLM), apollian, chaeronean, and chaeronic, is a Man/man-aligned gender person who's attracted to men/man-aligned (exclusively or not)   https://lgbta.wikia.org/wiki/Achillean     Diamoric - also known as adonian, adonic and cypric, is a Non-Binary person who's attracted to any person.   https://lgbta.wikia.org/wiki/Diamoric    😅 Probably missing a few other terms, plus who knows maybe more terms are being conjured as we speak.

      I'm a little short on patience also. I want "B" cup breasts so bad, I get depressed they're not growing faster. Shame on me for complaining. At 5 months I'm probably ahead of schedule with my "A" cups. Mostly want them bigger so that I will HAVE to come out to my family. I want to wear girl stuff SO bad. I have been leaving little clues around the house, but no one has mentioned anything yet. Wearing pretty high cut boy shorts and painting my toenails helps with the dysphoria some. Dressing and living as a woman will be much better. Sorry about the whimpering.   Jamie

      Those little creeps piss me off.  They got into some of my clothes and chewed a hole in one skirt.   They always seem to get my favorites.  I have a kitty, but she seems to prefer to do her hunting outside.  Useless thing.  Well, I still like her.   No snow here, had thunderstorms last night.  They claim it's supposed to be warm today - we'll see.   Spent the weekend at my daughter's house.  That was a nice break.  A friend up there has a teenaged daughter who is saying she is trans now.   Fortunately her mother is quite open to it.  I did tell them about this place if they want to check it out.   I watched Jack Rabbit's latest youtube.  It is pretty good for for an older girl to watch.

      I went to the gym with my 23 yr old  grandson this morning. First time since start of transition almost 5 months ago. They say you loose upper body strength. Oh yeah, they weren't wrong. He was doing 260 pounds and I was lucky to do 30 pounds. What a shock! I knew I was getting weaker, but didn't know it was that bad. Time to get serious about working out. Don't want to get ripped, just want to stay healthy.

      40 degrees? That's a heat wave for us Illinois gals. Love the coffee cup. We only got maybe a half inch of snow and a little freezing rain here in Pontiac.

      @KymmieLPatience is a virtue.  Keep telling yourself that, patience is a virtue, like hell it is when your waiting on HRT meds.  Makes a girls lose it! yes good socks that are thick and soft just can’t be parted with.  I have three pair.   Willow  
    • KymmieL
      Keira, boo hiss, auto zone. O'reilly is much better. JK.   @Willow , I know a good pair of socks is like an old friend.   Well, my Thursday. We got about 2" of white crap. My oldest in Lincoln, NE had 15" on the ground yesterday. And still coming down. The mule express must have gotten lost between here and Cheyenne. Still no E. anxious to get it.   Have a safe day everyone.   Kymmie
