The title of this post didn’t really prepare you for what was inside, did it? I mean, yeah, sure, these ARE platform wedges. But WHAT platform wedges they are!
Now, we could talk about the suede t-bar or the leather bootie. We could do that. But really, there’s not much point when that WEDGE is in the picture, is there? It’s practically jumping up and down, waving its hands (If wedges HAD hands, of course…) in the air and yelling “Look at me! Look at me!”
OK, shoes, we’re looking, we’re looking! Calm down!
We’re looking, but are we liking, that is the question? Well, I am. Liking looking, I mean. Would I like to own them or wear them? Not so much. The gold/silver is a bit too much to allow it to merge seamlessly into my wardrobe, but I do appreciate the design of these: the concertina-style wedge is one of those features that make we want to reach out and touch it… or to just put it on display.
What do you think? These are $995 for the shoes and $1095 for the boots: click here to buy them.
All I can think of are fireplace bellows. No one wants to walk about with a pair of those strapped to their feet. And the price! Lolz!!!!
Fireplace bellows! Yes! I knew they reminded me of something!
yes please both pairs!
Hm, no. Don’t like. The shininess of the wedge makes them look pretty cheap to me. Like everything I’ve ever laid eyes on by “Moschino Cheap&Chic”, which just has to be the biggest irony known to man 🙂
The boots are kind of OK, but not my preference anyway – as you said, to look at, great… but the price is not for mortals…
A la fireplace bellows, when I saw them I just imagined them folding and unfolding as you walked while they wheezed like an old accordion or concertina. Think of how the hoot-hoot wheezing of the wedges would accentuate the bouncing gait the shoes would induce … I think I need to drink more coffee.
Yes, they totally look like they would wheeze when you walked!
The boot is awful, but I could live with the t-bar. Just. I’m not sure I can get my head around those wedges.
