Shoe Kryptonite, in its purest, most dangerous form.

That’s actually pretty much all that needs to be said about these shoes, because anyone who knows me – or who’s been reading this blog for a few weeks or more – will already know of my weakness for red patent peep toes. Regardless of who makes them, this is a style that never fails to make an impact, and which looks amazing with everything from the simplest pair of jeans, to the fanciest of cocktail dresses. I actually love the idea of these shoes with a crisp white shirt and pair of faded blue jeans, but there also so many dresses and skirts in my closet they’d work with that I’m going to have to stop thinking about them, before I find myself hitting the “add to cart” button.

There are, however, a couple of things I do want to mention about these shoes. One is the peep toe, which is a “peep” toe in the truest sense of the word – it’s so tiny that only the smallest glimpse of toe will peek though. The other point to note here is the super-slim, 120mm heel, which gives the shoe that slightly dangerous look, but which could prove to be actually dangerous if you’re not used to walking in shoes of this height: it’ll put the ankle at a steep angle, which can take a bit of getting used to. Will it be worth it, though?

I don’t think I even need to answer that…

  • Are there really any other types of footwear besides a pair of stiletto pumps that are so simple in appearance, that seems to generate such appeal, and can be so comfortable and easy to wear? In patent leather, this simply classic footwear becomes the dynamic feature and accompaniment for any outfit one could choose to go with them.

    However, it’s the closed toe (short pointed, almond, and oval rounded shapes) stiletto pumps that are the styles that satisfy this guy’s fancy. Furthermore, the stiletto heel should be shaped to look like it is centered and supportive under the heel of the foot and not attached right at the back of the foot. When the heels look like they’re holding up only the back of the foot and not its heel, the heel tip is positioned further back, which also causes the foot to work harder in the normal high heel walking process of heel down first, then land the toe box. It also puts more stress on the stiletto having to bear a significant amount of one’s body weight for a longer period while landing the toe box, which could result in heel damage and sooner foot fatigue.
