These shoes aren’t here because I think you’ll like them – I’m pretty sure you won’t, but you’ve surprised me before! – but simply for sheer novelty value. I think this is the first time I’ve seen shoes with this particular kind of “hook” detail on the heel, and I just can’t seem to shake my first impression of them, which was that they look like they’re designed to be hung up on the wall, like pieces or art… or maybe kitchen implements.
My second impression, meanwhile, was that I’d probably be able to do a LOT of damage in a pair of shoes with metal hooks on the heels: happily, the silver detailing turns out to be leather, which will hopefully be a little less dangerous, albeit no less strange looking.
Can you think of a reason you’d need these in your life? If you can, you need to know that they’re £449, and you can buy them at Louisa Via Roma: click here to order a pair.
