Classic shapes, repulsive beauty and stunning creativity in footwear.
Welcome to Shoe Pr0n.
You won't find any dainty strappy numbers, flip flops, or gladiator sandals here. If you think Uggs or Crocs are acceptable forms of footwear, we probably won't get along. There are a million shoe blogs out there, but as this one is curated by me it is obviously going to be full of fabulous things.
Nicholas Kirkwood plays with the mid heel here, thickening it for more stability, but also playing the pointy toe off the blocky heel. The result is not an attractive or graceful shoe, but an interesting new shape to consider nonetheless.
So I hate kitten heels. And these shoes do not fit her foot. And I’m not a fan of strappy sandals. BUT! But I find the half-broken gold heel very interesting. As if something with so few straps weren’t precarious enough, they made it look like your shoes are breaking. I love that.
I know at first glance these boots look like nothing special, but I am fairly certain that the cut of the boot makes for an incredibly flattering shape. The ankle will collapse nicely into gentle folds and the calf will stand straight upwards creating that 1970s superhero calf. In short, these are simple yet great.
