For many seasons now our toes have had it relatively easy with the plethora of open top, peep toe and round toe shoe styles dominating the high street and the high end designers. But quite frankly, I'm bored of easy. I want the full on return of the super pointy toe.
It's been ages since I've seen a decent pair of pointy toe shoes in the shops and I hope that will change really soon, because there are few things in life more satisfying than looking down at your feet clad in sharp angles.
As is my want, I have been drooling over shoes I shan't ever be able to buy,. However it's still useful to have some idea of the kind of styles I'm hoping to find for a tenth of the price. Currently the two styles rocking my world are provided by Balenciaga and Chloe.
Setting the benchmark for futuristic. Delicious.
I'll eat my Lariat if Kurt Geiger don't produce some kind of variant of this style.
Utterly hands down my favourite. Leaf and flower embellished ankle boots and shoes? Don't mind if I do.
What I wouldn't give for the grey shoes and purple ankle boots above. I don't hold out much hope of a cheap version of these being produced, but I could be wrong. Office may do a half arsed attempt but Topshop, if you are listening, please create some kind of flora and fauna shoes that us mere mortals can afford? Thank you.
