“Chunky” was the first word that sprang to mind when first I laid eyes on these shoes. The heel is chunky, in that “almost a wedge” kind of way. The straps are chunky. The platform is chunky. They’re chunky, is what I’m trying to say here. (Did you get that these shoes are chunky? Did you?)
Now, “chunky” isn’t a word I normally like to associate with my shoes (and I promise that’ll be the last time I’ll write it here, because I’ve written it so many times now, it’s started to lose all meaning…), but in this case, it works perfectly. The black and gold colour combination will do it every time for me, but I just don’t think this shoe would’ve been have as effective with a more slender heel, or a more delicate upper. As they are, these have a bit of a “70s disco” feel to them, and while that’s also not something I usually go for, it totally works on these shoes.
