Alpha Omega red patchwork platform shoes

I’m not sure whether this was the designer’s intention or not, but the patchwork applique on the front of these shoes looks a little bit like leaves to me, and makes these shoes seem very appropriate for Autumn.

As well as the multicoloured “leaves”, these also have a python-print patent upper, plus a chunky platform and heel. The overall effect is a little more clumpy than I’d generally wear myself (I tend to think a chunky platform needs as high a heel as possible to stop it looking clumsy. Mind you, I think that about most shoes…) but it’s a shape that’s very fashionable at the moment, and the combination of thick heel and platform should make these shoes reasonably comfortable to walk in, too.

What do you think of these? If you love them, you can click here to buy them for £324 at Far Fetch.

    I agree with you, too chunky for my taste.

    I love the shape, but hate the color scheme. Since I am short and chunky myself, I always feel faintly ridiculous in pencil heeled anything. As far as the color scheme- the combination of pastels and red just doesn’t suit my taste.

    I’ll sit on the fence because I can’t decide how I feel about them.

    This is not a graceful shape for a shoe!
