Giddy stratospheres

So kitten heels are replacing vertiginous spikes are they? Not on my watch.

I love an improbable heel, the more jawdropping the better. I still moon after those Chanel gun heels, and in an attempt to move on from the McQueen/Gaga shoes that I posted about a few days ago and will never ever get to wear... I stumbled across the work of Chau Har Lee, as documented by Susie Bubble recently.


The heel-less heel is a much-done thing, yet this feels fresh and jawdropping.

As some shoes look blissfully comfortable, and others make one recoil in horror about how painful they must be to hobble about in... these fill me with curiosity. I can't imagine what it feels like to wear a shoe like this!

Perhaps it is beautifully supportive.

Perhaps it would leave indents and stripes across my feet for days.

I long to find out!

I love a crazy sculptural shoe.

Charponnaise said...

Me too! I find all these forecasts of the death of the crazy shoe and the usurping kitten heel quite depressing. What's wrong with foot sculpture, if you can walk comfortably in it?
