FASHION BEFORE COMFORT? -> HEEL-LESS SHOES
When you think of high-heels, you think of 5-inch heels, or platform shoes. But now the rage in the celebrity fashion world are HEEL LESS SHOES. I first noticed Lady Gaga wearing them, but now many designers making this type of shoe. Is it really in your best interest to get a shoe that is tricky to walk in? I mean high heels aren't necessarily easy by itself, but now you have to add no heels into the mix?
Celebs such as Victoria Beckham, Uma Thurman, and Gwyneth Paltrow have gone with the trend of buying these 5.5 inch shoes from ANTONIO BERARDI line costing between $2200-$3600!!!
Now that you know a price range of these type of shoes, here's some designers who have followed this dangerous trend: NORITAKA TATEHANA, MARC JACOBS, OLIVIER THEYSKENS, and NATACHA MARRO. The styles of these shoes can vary to boots, mary-janes, even glittery.
This shoes remind me of goats for some reason, walking on hooves which can tie into the idea of Illuminati as well because the creature associated with it looks like a goat. Hopefully when choosing to wear these shoes, you get a great booty and calf workout as well.
The question is do you dare walk through death-defying gravity in them? Some claim that it is easy to walk in because these shoes are extremely heavy, where most of the weight deliberately lies in the platform base under the toe. This then forces the wearer to put all the weight forward, so you don't tip over backwards.
If it was soooo easy, then why is Lady Gaga, the queen of heel less shoes, tripping? I guess since beauty is pain, FASHION IS PAIN TOO.
