Punty. For some reason, this word fascinated me, so while I’m sure ASOS.com probably intended it to be simply a fun shoe name (Kinda like the way Faith are always calling their shoes ‘Blippy’ or ‘Booby’ or somesuch) I decided to look it up on Urban Dictionary, which defines a “punty” as:
“A person who is short, and tries to make up for it by acting extremely angry and aggressive towards taller people. You will often times hear a punty person talking about how bad it sucks to be short.”
So, now you know! You’ll definitely be a little less short in these shoes, because they have a 5.2″ heel and 1.3″ platform so that’s one thing sorted. As for being aggressive towards taller people, well, that would be very naughty, so don’t do it, OK?
And now, every time I look at these shoes, I will imagine them walking up to a taller pair of shoes (yes, I know it’s hard to imagine a taller pair of shoes) and getting all aggressive. I love a shoe with personality!
