Hmmm. The issue of Footwear With Faces continues to be a controversial topic here at Shoeperwoman.com, and, once again, I have a feeling that these Charlotte Olympia ‘Cat Face’ pumps may divide opinion, in the same way as Marc Jacobs’ famous mouse flats, and the various other face-bearing footwear I’ve shown you.
These shoes are actually rather more subtle than the name “Cat Face” may suggest, and while they do, indeed, have a cat’s face right on the front of them, the fact that it’s attached to a simple black pump goes a long way towards making these less gimmicky than might otherwise have been the case.
Do you like them, though? Well, there’s no denying that they’re playful, whimsical, and all of those other words that tend to be attached to shoes that come in the shape of cats, or mice, or other cutesy animals. Personally, I prefer my shoes NOT to be staring up at me every time I wear them, but that’s just me, and while I wouldn’t buy these (probably not even if they weren’t $795), I don’t actively dislike them, either.
What do you think?
