Well, it looks like feathers are definitely the footwear trend of the season. This is the second pair of feathered heels I’ve shown you recently, but unlike the Manolo Blahnik’s I featured last week, I’m going to be a little more reserved in my appreciation of these ASOS court shoes, partly because I can’t help thinking that, from some angles, you could end up looking like you skewered a bird on your stiletto en route to the party.
I also worry about how well feathers will “weather”. Will they start to look bedraggled after a couple of wears? Would you have to wash them? What if they got caught in a sudden shower? All of these questions prevent me from reaching for my credit card and splashing out the required £100 on these, although, I must admit, there is something rather appealing about the idea of having wings on your heels. Just ask Hermes. (The Greek God, I mean. Not the luxury fashion brand.)
What do you think of these? If you love them, you can buy them at ASOS.
