Shoes with heels that light up when you walk: I didn’t like it when Jimmy Choo did it (or when the makers of kids’ sneakers did it, come to think of it), and I’m afraid I don’t like it any better now that Irregular Choice has decided to give it a go, either. In fact, I’ll be honest: I probably wouldn’t have liked these shoes even if the heels didn’t light up, because the combination of clumpy, slightly “sensible” looking Mary Jane and kerraaazy plastic heel just doesn’t work for me. (And no, I’ve no idea what would make a light-up heel acceptable to me, I just know that this isn’t it.)
In the interests of fairness, however, let’s take a closer look at that heel:
Hmm. I know I see a bow in there, but as for the rest of it, what is that? Tinsel? Is that what we’re looking at here? Well, I guess it at least has a “festive” kind of feel to it if that’s the case – I just wish they’d provided a photo of the heel lit up, so we could get a better idea of what it looks like.
What do you think of what you can see without the lights?
