Trend Alert: Would You Walk in Heel-less Heels?

Last week, my friend Allie and I paid a visit to the Met’s new “blog.mode: addressing fashion” exhibit – basically a collection of avant-garde conversation pieces like a court gown worn by one of Marie Antoinette’s ladies-in-waiting and a top hat made completely out of human hair.

What we ended up staring at the longest was an odd looking heel-less shoe from Manolo Blahnik’s Spring ’06 collection. Was it broken? Was it meant to look deconstructed like the Christian Dior dress on the other side of the room with the hip pads jutting out? Nope, it turns out, that was actually the intended silhouette.

Yesterday, I was flipping through my February issue of Elle — hot off the mail truck — and there on the front page of the fashion section was a pair of "misplaced-heel pumps" courtesy of Marc Jacobs. My first reaction was to think that Marc must be playing his cute little game of “let’s see what crazy thing I can get them to wear now.” But surprisingly, this design is not just Manolo being creative or Marc Jacobs having a laugh at our expense; it is actually a recycled style from a quite fashionable time – see Italy, 1950s.

So what do we think ladies, is this a hot style we should embrace? Or does it only belong locked up behind glass? Give us your verdict on these Marc Jacobs Spring '08 designs:
