Help me decide about these?
(Please move this post to another thread if ti should be in one...thanks ).

The first time I saw these shoes I thought they were hideous,but now thye're kind of growing on me...

Also,with black set to make a comeback I'm thinking they'll be good to have right now?

What are your thoughts on these shoes regarding 1)style and 2) longevity?

I guess wedges are rather in right now so in that way they are a bit trendy,but they are really quite a punky/rock chick-y wedge.

Yay or Nay?

What makes them a bit extra-special is the very wide straps, especially coupled with the very slim wedge. It's a graceful shoe, and there are not a whole lot of wedges that deserve that compliment.

They are by Bottega V.Don't let that influence your decision though.There are ugly designer shoes too.

Perhaps it's the colour or the gold trimmings...but I don't like them- and I happen to admire the craftmenhip of Bottega.

Hey Quirky! Yay for me.

I think they'll have some longevity, too. Wedges were in about 4 years ago and then were "out" a short time after only to be back in again now. My point being that fashion cycles seem to be getting shorter and you'll definitely wear them again!! And that only matters if you follow trends anway, which you don't seem to do (and I mean that in a good way ).

PS - there is a "Yay or Nay" thread in the shoe forum that would accomodate this, too

hmm no, i dont like them quirky
they should have a tiniest platform to keep the weight of the busy design in balance.. they seem a bit 'heavy' , which makes me wonder on the 'longevity' issue
