Shoes to die for, or shoes that kill?
At Paris fashion week it wasn’t just the clothes that were getting noticed it was the models feet too! There were some amazing styles for any shoe lover to feast upon, A lot of them ingenious and architecturally marvellous.
At Yves Saint Laurent, the soles of Mr. Pilati’s needle-thin stilettos were replaced by a thin metal rod that connected the heel to the toe, leaving the most sensitive underbelly of the foot vulnerably exposed.
Riccardo Tisci of Givenchy offered gladiator styles that laced to the knees, in sandal and stiletto variations.
Alexander McQueen included a pagoda shoe in his show that elicited applause for the model who wore them without falling.
Our favourite; Antonio Berardi showed a high heel on an elongated platform at the toe that actually had no heel.
