Vivienne Westwood’s ‘toe’ shoes – Autumn Winter 2009


I’m guessing it’s probably no great surprise to anyone who reads this blog to know that I’m a huge Vivienne Westwood fan, both in terms of clothes and shoes.

These shoes, though? These trouble me. The, um, “toe ridges”, if that’s the right expression, are a big feature of the A/W 09 collection, and, well, “hate” is a very strong word, so let’s just say they make all of the shoes look like they were two sizes too small for their owner, who nevertheless decided to wear them anyway, to the point where the leather started to mold to their toes.

In other words: I’m not keen. If you are, though, the two styles shown here, and many more besides, can be found here. What do you think, though?
