KISSING STILETTOS GOOD-BYE (YES INDEED!) – YOUR FEET CAN REJOICE THIS SEASON. DESIGNERS ACROSS THE BOARD HAVE RE-ENVISIONED THE ANKLE BOOT, COMING UP WITH MIND-BOGGLING, CHUNKY, BLOCK-HEELED MASTERPIECES.
As if allowing women to give a glimpse of their secret diva while carrying on with the order of the day, the trend seems to be boots in which the very plain and down-to-earth front is contrasted by outrageously delicious, avant-garde heels in the back. Rochas sets the mark with some of the most ingenious creations of the season. His bead-embellished, broad heeled boots let you turn even the most mundane outing into a glorious walk of fame. Dior doesn’t hold back either with his patent leather candy-coloured, two-tone Lucite heeled shoes. Whether paired with a casual pair of jeans or a stunning evening dress, these boots are bound to become an all time favourite, letting you make a statement with every step you take. Acne takes the deconstruction of the heel to a new level as well, presenting us with sculptural broad heels that look like true works of art. If all this is too much for you however, Marc Jacobs offers the most toned-down version of the block heel this season, presenting an array of single-tone patent leather second-skin boots that look like you could dance for miles in them without needing a foot spa the next day! So be happy, go wild and slip into a pair of these wonderfully comfortable creations this season.
