The Worishofer Shoe: the new celebrity footwear of choice, apparently

No, your eyes don’t deceive you: I’m showing you orthopaedic shoes, and I’m trying to claim that these are a fashion statement. I’m pretty sure that’s one of the signs of the Apocalypse right there.

What I’m not doing, however, is claiming I’d ever wear these personally (relax, good readers!): it’s no secret that I like my shoes high, and I like them not to look like what the elderly contingent of my town like to wear with their flesh-coloured tights, but apparently these shoes ARE the hot new fashion trend. They’re Worishofer orthopaedic sandals (originally designed for people with bunions) and, having been spotted on the likes of Maggie Gyllenhaal, Kirsten Dunst and Michelle Williams, they’re now being described as the hottest celebrity must-have.

It’s at times like this I’m glad I don’t follow fashion.

What do you think of these? Obviously wearing them because of foot issues is totally understandable, but do you think they can make the leap to fashion-item? If you do, you can get them at Amazon.
