Good heavens, those shoes are an engineering marvel and it requires amazing acrobatics and muscle control to operate them. I was gobsmacked at them. Brilliant stuff. If you wanted to see more photographs in higher resolution and skip my silly comments, here’s the slideshow.
Keds, flat leather shoes and shoes with what appears to be an anklet wrapped around it. Bloody good, looks very nice. Mind you, you have to be careful with that stuff as it can get caught in protrusions and stuff, but looks very good.
This is my biggest bug bear. You spend hundreds of pounds of shoes, high heels, have back ache and leg ache, your toes are squished for looking good and then you ruin it all by not taking off the label cleanly? Bah!. But this new fashion of showing the underside of the heels in eye catching colours is very nice. Very discreet colour attraction.
But you have to take care of them heels, specially if they are bright yellow. You cant go about with damaged, scuffed and scarred heels, love. And please, do something about your own heel, get a pedicure done. Those white scaly heels look disgusting.
The shoes on the left are brilliant, very nice. On the right, the shoes are just ok. Those pillar / pedestal heels, hmmm, no, they are way too masculine with the broad straps and severe looking buckle. Plus looking at the toes, the lady is not comfortable at all, she is trying to brace herself with the toes on both feet, she is heading for trouble.
Now despite these pedestal heels, there is some tapering to them and the severe simplicity means that these shoes are on the plus good side. Plus they show off the ankle, or would have if she wasnt wearing those stockings. But irrespective, she looks good.
Then these four lovely ladies wearing white tee shirts (which said, I’m wearing Anna’s shoes) pranced around. Lovely, all the shoes look very beautiful. Very classy, very sleek, feet look lovely and well maintained. Just perfection. Although the red band was a wee bit too wide for my taste, but its a minor point. This seems to be the start of a new trend, having a floating panel on the top.
Lovely sleek classic sandal with one strap. Maybe something could have been done to make sure that the strap doesnt flap around, but minor point. Good material and good colour. Very nicely highlighting the ankle and the lady is smart enough to have rolled up her trouser leg. Nice.
So there you have it, the shoes that I saw at London Fashion Week. There are more shoes on the model photo essay.
