I own a lot of black shoes. This is for three reasons: 1. I wear black most days, 2. they match everything and 3. they disguise the actual length of my feet. (Have you ever seen a size 11 foot in white pumps? Not an attractive sight.) My current favorites are a pair of black ballerina flats and a pair of black patent leather loafers.
I recently came across the website If Shoes Could Kill. This site is outrageous. I can appreciate high fashion and every woman worth her salt has a pair of CFM pumps somewhere in her closet (even if she never walks in them), but these shoes take the cake! Here are a few of the most over-the-top pairs.
And a couple of pairs by "real" designers. (Wonder if Carrie Bradshaw would wear these?)
Thank you Balenciaga.
Ditto, Christian Louboutin
