chanel floating air shoe
I have been in LOVE with those Chanel "air/lift" shoes since they came out a couple of year ago. They have a pointed toe, and a t-strap and then the heel is lifted, like you are floating.I was too young/poor to get them back when they came out (i am only 22 now) and now i REALLY want them but cannot find them ANYWHERE, not even on ebay anymore.

Do any of you have them and don't want them? if you do have them, are they comfy, nice?

let me know!

ok, i found a pic of them!

I like those, but how do you walk in them, is there something preventing the back from dropping onto the heel?

well, there is metal that supports it, so it is always in the air like that. I have never worn them or even seen them in person though, so i can't say for sure.

Wow, I've never seen these before but they do look lovely If they really keep the space between the heel of your foot and the heel of the shoe -even when walking- then it's the funniest and most innovating feature i've seen in ages I hope you''ll be able to find them somewhere!

i remember those shoes, but i don't think the heel of your foot stays elevated like that when you're walking...it's kind of like when you're walking in a pair of mules: it flops up and down; but when you're sitting down or have your feet up in the air or something, the heel of your foot remains elevated. at least that's what i think.

i don't remember what collection this shoe is from, but i know i have some old magazines that have the ad with the model wearing them. i tried searching for some runway photos of the shoes in action but i couldn't find any.

Brian, you are awesome! thanks for the pic. I used to have some pics from the catwalk with the girls in these shoes. It is from the same line with the birdcage heel. Remember those??? also very cool.

This is so true. I have seen them on someone and that's exactly what i thought, but at the time i was not as educated about shoes as i'am now. They are very different and people will definetly stare in awe.
