Hi everyone , i just wondered if anyone ( thats ANYONE ) have any thoughts on their footwear with stockings . Do you think a certain shoe type goes well with a stocking type or vice versa , lets see what you think .

Many thanks in advance

My wife wears the more traditional pump, (pic below)however she wants to try slingbacks also. She just received a pair of Jimmy Choo slides as a gift. We will have to give them a whirl as well, even though I don't know how she's going to keep them from sliding right off her feet!

Lady S wears 6/7 inch heels with stockings irrespective of style of shoe...as she says"seams do not look right without heels".

I couldn't agree more LS but what type of heel does MrsLS like to wear with her seams , a classic stiletto ,a platform etc , i just wondered if some preferred a certain shoe to match there stocking choice , but a heel is a must lol thanks x

I'm an Old School / Retro lady.  I like a 3 1/2 to 4 inch heel height.  My preference is open heel and toe slingbacks, ankle straps or slide sandals.  Shoe size is 5 1/2 - 6. I don't wear sandal foot sheer hosiery or closed pumps.  I stick with the rh&t and ff seams.  I wore my first pair of seams in 1962. I was eleven years old and I've enjoyed the adorning since then.  Since then is 55 years ago.  I'm 66 now!:58674be025c9f_EmojiSmiley-05:

Very nice choices too HB . Slingbacks tend to show more of the heel , a teasing choice i think , thanks HB x

As long as it's heels (stilettos or similar...not big chunky ones) and it suits the weather...obviously something more closed on a wet/cold day and open on fine/warm days.

I have always thought the heels of shoes should "reflect" the heels on ff's nylons/stockings, even copy tights thus, ie point heels with stiletto's,cuban heels with with thick high heels (those pre stiletto, as per betty page for example) but not the almost clog types of the 1980's, Ugh!

Don't wish to upset any of the slingback fans replying to this thread ... but I'm always a full court girl, Particularly with seams.  Agree with Auntie above that stiletto's with point heels but thicker heels can suit a cuban style.  Minimum heel height 3.5", normally 4.5.  Fortunately there's a plentiful selection of heels in my wardrobe for that perfect colour match!

Me too, but there is also a case for sling backs. Why have a heel and not show it with FFs, but maybe not with RHT.

Of course, sling backs and a sheer heel are a dream.

T-Bar heels look fantastic.  As soon as I find a pair that takes my fancy, I'll buy them.

Heels of any kind - definitely. I've worn flats and they just, well, fall flat.

Hi:

As a long time wearer of stockings, I wear them with all kinds of shoes. I agree that they look best with high heels, but I also enjoy wearing them with lower heels, flats and even white Keds canvas oxfords. 

In the eatly 1960s, when I started wearing nylons, a hot look was to wear seamless stockings with white Keds. I still love that look with casual clothes on weekends. Another sixties look I still wear is stockings with skimmer flats, especially the kind with a slingback. Like many others here, I like to show off the reinforced heels of my stockings. So I wear slingback flats with RH&Ts for a sixties look, or with FFNs for more of a casual fifties look. As you might suspect, I collect and wear vintage  clothing.  

Of course I love wearing both seamed and seamless stockings with closed high heel pumps, open toe slingback pumps, sandals and slides. My heels are generally in the 3 to 4 inch range. I tend to wear my closed pumps with my modern nude heel or sandalfoot stockings since it seems a shame to me to hide the reinforced heels and toes of my good vintage stockings. 

When we were teens back in the 1960s, my friends and I liked to show off our reinforced heels with slingback shoes to announce to the world that we were wearing real nylons. I guess I still do! The fashion police have been after me for years LOL!

I had to look up what Keds were lol

I think what it comes down to is that everyone has a fav heel/shoe that they feel suits their style of that moment . It may not be to everyone's taste but who cares , it's what we want .

Many thanks to all taking part x

pumps are best. sandals should have proper straps to stop your feet from sliding all over.
