    Footplate dilemmas: Womens footware

    I retired from wearing stiletto heels and fishnet stockings back in high school, so this thread isn't for me. Really.

    Rather, it's for the ladies who often complain that they struggle finding footrests/footplates that can accommodate the various styles of shoes they wear and their different seating postures (e.g., legs crossed or both feet on the footrest).

    I thought it would be helpful to invite the ladies to post pics of their footware/footrest struggles and, hopefully, the tribal elders can brainstorm some solutions.

    I no longer have one, but an angle-adjustable footplate helped with this. Flatter with flat shoes, tipped down in the back for shoes with higher heels. I did find, at least with the one on my TE Terminator, that the more you rotate the footplate around, the easier it is to rotate, and the next thing you know, it just falls down with the slightest pressure.

    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    No! It is all in the name of science. Speaking of which I think it would be helpful for the ladies to post pictures of their breasts, you know just so the tribal elders can brainstorm on... boob solutions

    Funny as if anyone else had posted this..they would have been highly suspicious. Yet, all the hidden foot fetishes are thrilled you asked I am sure!

    Whoever invents a real solution to this issue..shit..I need to invent and be the next Pat!

    Lol, floppy footplate syndrome is no good. Sheet metal screws fixed that, for me! What passes for "adjustable" these days is basically made to be "configurable". Set it, and forget it. Don't actively "adjust" it too much!

    LOL - that is exactly what I wound up doing, and no more adjustment for heels.
