    13 Women Show Off The Shoes They Feel Sexiest In

    "Yes! I have kept my heels on during sex..."

    ShoesOfNYC is a visually stimulating Instagram account that highlights people around New York City and the shoes they wear.

    Besides simply showing off beautiful, unique shoes, the creatives behind it dive deeper into why people are wearing a specific pair of shoes on a particular day.

    In a recent series, ShoesOfNYC went around New York and asked women with heels on how or why they make them feel sexy.

    1. Schutz: Thassia

    "I think heels with a strap around the ankle — that's the kind of shoe where my boyfriend would be like, 'Fuck dinner, I'm taking you back home.'"

    2. Isabel Marant

    "Lace-ups are a man trap. I think it's the strappy heels that attract guys because of the connection to bondage. It's all about sex appeal and the idea of being tied up, which all relates back to the bedroom. A man wants to see as much skin as possible. They even want to see toes! Which is weird...but these are definitely my boyfriend's new favorite."

    3. Gucci

    "I swear I get hit on because of my shoes. It makes sense because heels just make me feel so sexy. It doesn't have to be this specific pair, either — I'd do it in any heel!"

    4. Christian Louboutin

    "Louboutin's inspiration comes from his attraction to showgirls and fetishes. These shoes are a fantasty piece...so obviously about sex. You see how stressed my ligaments are? It's about the leg being in a certain position, and relates to how your body feels during sex. When I put on a heel of this height it makes me feel like I'm entering another realm above where I usually am. It's not about being a different person, it's very much about staying yourself. Heels give you access to a different part of yourself that you wouldn't have reached before. That's where the power and mystery comes into play."

    5. Valentino

    "My Valentinos rubbing into a guys legs is probably so painful. But if I have to experience the pain of wearing them, he should feel a little pain too! Pleasure and pain, they go hand in hand."

    6. Converse

    "For me, sneakers are about strength, both when it comes to my personal and professional life. I just feel less capable in heels, but more power to you if you want to wear heels in bed. Whatever does it for you. I just know I'm not thinking, 'How do my legs look in this position?' I'm good... And no, I've never worn sneakers in bed. I'll try it, though."

    7. Le Silla

    "These heels make me feel like Catwoman — like I should walk into a bar wearing a skintight leather outfit and surprise my man. They're badass and give me a whole new identity."

    8. Charlotte Olympia

    "I'm wearing heels with a cowboy wrangler on them — of course I've had sex with heels on. With the right heels, you hold the power over men: Not only do they want to rip your clothes off, they want to buy you lots of sky-high heels. Just as my boyfriend is telling me for the 10th time to 'hurry up!' I put my heels on and he shuts his mouth."

    9. Giambattista Valli

    "I think sexy heels elevate you to a whole new level of confidence and that's the sexiest thing a woman can have. When I was 19 I was studying abroad in Rome and I noticed how much men judge you by your shoes. When I wore the right heel the men would get excited. Una bella figura — 'a beautiful figure' is what they say."

    10. Valentino

    "Sex and heels are definitely in tune, but it's not a casual, everyday thing. It's very much a process that gets you excited with anticipation. A lot of times when you're single, shit goes down and it's not always planned. I would only do this for someone special. In my opinion you have to earn everything in life, and sex is no different. It's that moment when he walks in and has no idea what he's about to see. You're about to take things off and he tells you to keep your heels on. But this is all my agenda, under my direction... Now that's power."

    11. Unknown

    "They make me feel sexy...like I want to straddle something."

    12. Saint Laurent

    "I wear this nude, in the nude. I love the way they make my legs look. I just think they're really sexy, and my man agrees. I don't think sex in heels is a normal thing for every woman. I actually do it because my man likes the shoes in bed. He was the first one I did it with, and now I'm totally into it."

    13. Vero Cuoio

    "YES! I have kept my heels on during sex. It was always a fantasy of mine to do so. Not so much for the pleasure of the other person but for me. Keeping them on gave me that boost of energy which made the experience 100 times better. Heels evoke a very dark, sexual side of me. Think 'black leather, red lips.' Very dominant, to be quite honest. That's my mood 99.9% of the time, so putting on a good pair of heels is the cherry on top."
