Alongside creepy and ethereal costumes at the Alexander McQueen shows last year...
We saw these:
The heel-less shoe phenom provoked oohs and aahs and confused looks from the public (not to mention the horsey connotations that are conjured up when one combines heel-less hooves and furry feet). So on that note a myriad different schlebs began to wear them - because what better way to turn heads than by freaking people out with your impossible-looking footwear? Lady Gaga was into it. So was Daphne Guinness. And then there was me.
I was heartily suprised and stonked when I noticed that Pulp Shoes had a pair in their new lookbook, designed by Tony Bianco. I was more than a little excited. I had a morbid interest in these gravity-defying things. I had to try them. I ordered them. I expected to end up like this in a few seconds:
And gawd dammit, Lady Gaga has minders to hold her - I ain't (sob) got nobody. If I fall the whole world is welcome to point and laugh - my own bloody fault for trying to wear such crazy stupid shoes, you'll say. But ya know what?
Ted Baker shirt, Random leather pants, Tony Bianco shoes from Pulp Shoes, Deadly Ponies bag.
I'm telling ya team, it's actually possible! For some totally unknown reason (I never was good at physics), you can not only walk, you can also put weight into your heels as well! How's that for extraordinary? While I wouldn't recommend them for a mid-week office outfit, they're certainly fantastic for a party, a fashion walk-off, a bush walk, swimming with the dolphins, or attending Madrid Fashion Week.
And so if Tony Bianco, Pulp Shoes and Hannah's are doing them, can we expect them to go mainstream next week? Or will this crazy trend remain with the brave (and stupid) at heart?
Answer me that.
Freak and Rave fashion coming up next time. I promise you'll scream.
All crazy images thanks to Richard.
