Would You Wear Uber-Designed Designer Heels?

April 3, 2008 by Rebekah

In a story yesterday, the New York Observer articulated a phenomenon that’s been irking us as we’ve wandered the streets of Manhattan lately: odd, over-the-top, arguably ugly shoes. Inventive? Certainly. Artistic? Sure, why not. But they’re also usually quite expensive and, from the looks of it, quite difficult to incorporate into a functional wardrobe. So overall, we’ve been questioning these heels’ appeal.

Take the two pairs above. The Christian Dior heel (left, $1,090) reminds me of a (albeit very good) French courtesan costume. The heel is, brace yourselves ladies, 5 ½” high. I can get behind the neutral color, but all those straps, the pyramidal cutout heel…they don’t seem particularly wearable.

This Prada shoe (right, $690), already pretty substantial and clunky, is made even more overwhelming by the odd undulations in that wavy pattern and the strange color combo. And what’s with that thin little strap and gold buckle? Yet, according to Saks, “popular demand” has forced the store to limit each shopper to “no more than three units every thirty days.” What’s going on here?

Perhaps I’m more alone than I have assumed in my rejection of the more-is-more shoe trend. We want to know: What’s your opinion on these showstopping shoes?
