Let’s just proceed directly to the stand-out feature of these shoes, shall we? The giant, plexi flower on the toe:
It’s quite something, isn’t it? Strangely (for me, anyway), it seems to be attached to a vaguely “sensible” looking shoe, whereas I’d prefer to see an embellishment like this attached to something a little more delicate. Still, the chunky heel should help increase the comfort factor of these, and perhaps make them a little more wearable, too, by combining the extravagant detailing with a fairly plain upper.

I kind of love the combination of practical & whimsical. Then again, I think there’s a fine line between practical (comfortable enough to actually walk in) & sensible (which makes me think “old lady shoes”). For me, these definitely fall on the practical side of that line, and I’d love them… If I could afford them.
Nice, but that price tag for plexi flowers? Too much – at least for me…!
I don’t like the chunky heel, but I could overlook it because that flower is amazing.
These Nina Ricci shoes with flower detail are retailing for $400 in Oz dollars at Myer for the boxing day sale.
