Tom Cruise and Lenny Kravitz have them already. And also David Bowie and Nicolas Sarkozy have this shoes in their closet. The men heels!

Years ago these shoes where a status model. How higher the heel, how bigger was your status. But they are back and better than before.

The men heels are a lot more coarse than women heels en the heels are easier.

Dior has already a men heel in his collection and they say that heels for men are the new shoes.

I have my doubts but we will see what the future brings..

Why is it cool?

This is cool because this is a good example of a androgynous thing. This is when men or women take over a standard thing from the other gender. It is a whole new thing in this time and a whole transformation.
