Stop The Madness: Men Doing the Heel Pose

Don’t shoot the messenger. Someone had to speak on this…

We’d like to touch on a very important topic which has taken sneaker photos by storm lately which we call the “Heel Pose.” As we all know, members of the sneaker community sometimes go to extreme lengths to take “different” & “creative photos.” However, this trend (or pose) has gone TOO far and it makes us feel uncomfortable!

As soon as we started seeing the “Heel Pose” circulate, this was our facial expression:

Seriously, that’s exactly how we reacted. How many of you caught a Charlie Horse doing this???!

Every guy has heard how much women complain about their feet hurting from walking around like that. Imagine how a guy must feel after snapping 4-6 photos in the “Heel Pose,” just to choose that one picture to potentially earn (so he thought) 1000+ likes on Instagram, or better yet a sneaker blog feature!

Just find a nice background and snap a normal photo, STOP THE MADNESS!

Fellas, let the ladies have their heel pose.

Guys, here are a few examples of how NOT to pose. You’re welcome.

    And the homophobia and bigotry continues in the sneaker business. Way to promote, TSG.

  • Nikeindabutt

    @ this whole post – AMEN/TABERNACLE/CHURCH & yeslawd.

    @ Thomas – How does asking sneaker enthusiasts who are natural born Men to refrain from ballerina-inspired poses equate to promoting homophobia??? Your statement would suggest that all homosexual males appear or behave feminine…that is not the case at all.
