      If women’s cleats don’t fit, you can try men’s cleats. They’re wider, and more men’s lacrosse cleats are made than women’s, so they’re ideal. I recommend Warrior ones, but Nike is pretty good too. If you’re set on women’s cleats, Warrior and New Balance teamed up to make really good women’s lacrosse shoes. Check them out:http://www.lax.com/shop/lacrosse-footwear.html . Also, Nike has some really good ones: http://store.nike.com/us/en_us/?sitesrc=uslp#l=shop,pwp,c-1+100701/f-4294967045/hf-10001+12001/t-Women%27s_Shoes/ipp-48/pn-1

      I wouldn’t really recommend soccer cleats, just because in my experience soccer cleats have been pretty narrow and I have a wide foot. I also wouldn’t go with a football cleat because if you’re going to buy a guy’s shoe, you might as well buy a guy’s lacrosse shoe.

      Hope this helps!

      Your going to need cleats.

      I bought mine at Sports Authority. I tried finding the ones i bought a couple weeks ago, on the website, but i couldn’t find it. Sorry. But go there, and ask someone which are the best, and try at least 2 kinds on. (Nike for me, is the best brand, and also, the lighter, the better!)

    Men’s, Women’s, Clothes, Shoes, Etc? A few year ago I bought and some women’s clothes and footwear out of curiosity. Initially, it turned me on, but after a while I realised I wasnt turned on, I was obscenely comfortable. I don’t even think obscenely is the right word but I’d never felt as comfortable as I had when I was wearing women’s clothes.
    I don’t want to be a woman because I wasn’t born like that but I get the feeling if I was able to simply wear what I want, I would be much, much happier.
    I didn’t ‘dress up’ like a drag queen, I wore what your see the average woman wearing, I was fashionable hehe. I only ever left the house once though, and went to a club in my local city I was pretty thin at the time. I wore tightish WOMEN’S jeans, a MAN’S shirt and some kinky overknee black leather boots and by hell did I feel good.
    Nowadays, I’m in a relationship with a woman who sees the whole crossdressing thing as something which is really wrong… But she wears my clothes all of the time. I see ‘women’ wearing men’s clothes all the time and it p***es me right off that of I was to wear something as simple as flat women’s boots under my jeans I would probably get a beating and be disowned by all who know me

    I guess my question is, am I doomed to a life of longing to be comfortable like I was for a short period or are men likely to get things like boots and rights back which were originally men’s attire?
    ARGH!!!

      I don’t think you’re doomed at all – and you don’t sound like a cross dresser or drag queen from your description. You like wearing women’s jeans and boots – all that tells me is you like tight fitting jeans and boots with higher heels. That hardly makes you cursed.

      Skinny jeans for men are probably nothing more than the women’s jeans you bought. As for the boots, I met a man in the mall wearing the exact same high heel boots I was wearing last winter. He was wearing them with some very nice jeans that covered most of the heel and all but the toe, with a nice dress shirt and blazer. We actually ended up chatting in the food park over coffee. If you like your jeans tighter and your heels higher, then you should wear what makes you feel comfortable. All you’re really doing is creating your own style, which I applaud. Hope this helps.

    What Are The Differences Between The English, French And Italian Renaissances When Concerning Women’s Clothing? I’m doing a project in which I design dresses based on the Renaissance period, but I don’t understand the differences between the clothing each renaissance wore.

      Women’s Clothing

      Eubank and Tortora (1989) stated that women’s outerwear during the 15th century did not noticeably change until 1440. From the years 1440-1500, dresses, worn over the chemise or camicia, were worn in either a one or two piece garment. The one piece was a cut from shoulder to hem, with the top cut similarly to men’s jacket styles and were smooth fitting with yoke-like construction over the shoulder, full pleats or gathers over the bustline and were usually belted. Bucknell and Hill (1967) reported that two piece styles consisted of a bodice and fully gathered skirt with a similar construction to one piece styles and were closed by lacing up the front or the side. There were many different variations on the styles of women’s outer dresses. During the early Renaissance, the necklines varied in cut and height. Aston (1968) stated that in the mid 1400s, necklines were rounded with a usually high cut. With the end of the century came lower necklines with a more squared cut or a deep v-neck cut held together by lacing and showed the upper part of the chemise. Eubank and Tortora (1989) reported that another style that arose were two layer dresses which consisted of an underdress and over that an outer dress. The underdress was one piece with the bodice and skirt fully joined with a close fit to the body. The underdress was often visible at parts of the outer dress, whether it be the neckline, sleeves and/or under the arm. The outer dress was sleeveless with seams at the shoulders and an open arm to display the underdress. Baines (1981) noted that the sleeves that were shown were two piece, puffed out at the top or with a close fit and were cut to reveal the camicia, while some dresses had hanging sleeves for decoration. One variation on the outer dress was the Venetian dress which was not as heavy as most other outer dresses but was made with a more rigid fabric. Bucknell and Hill (1967) noted throughout the 16th century the outer dress remained similar to the dresses of the 15th century with a few variations. The outer dress was made wider and with more fullness. The necklines had more of a wider and more square shape and cut lower to reveal more of the camicia. The sleeves became wider, with more fullness. Baines (1981) stated that most sleeves were puffed out at the top and had a close fit from above the elbow to the wrist. The sleeves became more elaborate and decorated with the elaborate puffs and decorative slashes. The waistlines of the outer dresses were designed straight across at the beginning of the 16th century, but towards the end of the century, the waistlines acquired a more v-shaped cut in the front and straight across cut in the back adapted from Spanish styles. Eubank and Tortora (1989) reported that Venetian outer dresses acquired a more u-shaped cut in the front of the waistlines with a straight cut in the back. Women’s outer garment styles kept the same basic idea throughout the Renaissance, with slight alterations throughout the years. Little changes in necklines, waistlines, sleeves and such help identify the dress to the different time periods and different rulers. Bucknell and Hill (1967) noted that with the change of rulers came a change in what was considered fashionable depending on what the Queen or King wore.

      Women’s undergarments were also important in the Renaissance when it came to being fashionable and distinguishing status and social class as with other, more visible fashions, such as outer dresses, head dress and footwear. Tortora and Eubank noted that the main women’s undergarments was the chemise, or as it was also called, camicia or underobe. The role of the chemise was to form the shape of the dress and in the later years was shown at the neckline and sleeves of the dress, and therefore had to be decorated and fashionable. The chemise was worn under the dress and over the corset or corselet and petticoat. Tortora and Eubank stated that before the end of the 15th century, the chemise was rarely seen, except to work in field in hot weather or in the privacy of the wearer’s own home. Bucknell and Hill (1967) noted that the collar of the underobe was worn as if it were the collar for the over dress. The chemise was made of linen and the quality of the linen depended on status and social class. Baines (1981) noted that the chemise was cut full length, from the shoulder to the hemline of the skirt, along with the cut of the outer dress. The sleeves were usually cut long, to the wrist or the end of the sleeve of the outer dress. Tortora and Eubank (1989) noted that some sleeves were cut in “raglan style,” with seams from below the arm at front and back to the neck instead of being set into the armhole.

    Does Supra Make Women’s Shoes?

    View Comment

      No. Supra Footwear is made to target men, but that doesn’t mean women can’t wear them as well.

      Also, keep in mind that all Supra Shoes run a half a size (.5) bigger then your normal size.

      If you wear a size 7 in women then your about a size 9 in mens.

      If your size 9 in mens then get a size 8.5 for any Supra Shoe…but if you like a tighter fit then get your normal size (9).

      I suggest you go inside a store and try them on.

      I hope this helps.

    Do People Find Women’s Feet Beautiful?

      I hardly consider myself a fetishist, but yeah, I will admit to having a particular fondness for a beautiful pair of female feet and even complimentary footwear. Considering that there are manicure/pedicure shops on just about every corner in the city as well as the suburbs, combined with and endless plethora of women’s footwear on prominent display in store windows, etc., I would think that the answer to your question would be patently obvious!

    Women’s Hiking Boots? My sister goes on hikes a lot, so I figured I’d get her boots for Christmas. I’m looking for something that will keep her feet warm for the cold weather, but a durable good boot – one with nice traction. She’s not a girl girl, so looks don’t matter. Any ideas? I’m looking to spend no more than 150$, and the top quality brands have their boots going for 300$. So anyone?

      Your hearts in the right place but there are two things a person should never buy for another woman, shoes and bra’s, you will never get the fit right without her present to try them on. Good luck with that. Here is a selection from REI you may find these cheaper elsewhere but at least read the reviews and bring her with you for sure.
