Sometimes they are a geometric phenomenon. I went in search of interesting geometric heels in a range of extremity. You've probably seen the Alexander McQueen collection, but if not, you should check out this article from the Huffington Post For your viewing pleasure:
My inspiration for this post is this pair of 1980s Italian-made Walter Steiger heels avaialable in my Etsy shop. I naturally turned to Etsy for more inspiration.
I found these beauties at Miscusi. These heels are wonderful, and look like they would be so comfortable to wear! Miscus, I am with you: purple heels are awesome. However, the purpose of this post was to entertain the idea of shoes that I would an could never wear, for reasons of balance or budget.
.....how exactly does this work?!
On a very important related note, RIP, Alexander McQueen. You will be remembered for you contradictions.... I mean, contributions, to beauty and fashion.
