Heel ~ Less Wonders?

The perfect coffee table adornment!

I’m quite intrigued by the heel less shoe which is trying to be the current trend right now (note: I said trying).  Thanks in part to Lady Gaga strutting in her Noritaka Tatehana designed shoe back in 2011.   What I’ve noticed, is you either really hate this shoe or you really love it.  I’m still undecided as I don’t see myself wearing these 20 years from now (will these ever be vintage? NOT!).  I do think these red sparkly ones above would look great on display in my living room though; what else would you do with these shoes?.  I’ve written about these shoes before, but was inspired to write about them again after attending a fabulous event a couple of weekends ago.  There were at least 3 women teetering around in these imaginary 5 inch wonders. 

These look like weapons!

After some research and watching YouTube videos, I found out that these shoes are fairly easy to walk in.  Apparently the trick is that the shoes are actually quite heavy because they are weighted in the platform base under the toe.  Therefore, all your weight is forced forwards, then downwards, so you are unable to tip backwards (I’m still not truly convinced about that).  On the flip side, I’ve also seen YouTube videos of fashion shows, where models have stumbled and fallen flat on their faces; not a pretty sight!  This is probably the last time you’ll hear about these shoes from me for a while, I’m moving on to other interesting things!

Have an amazing Tuesday!
