I recently saw shoes by Stella McCartney on sale at Language in NYC. The hologram style is quite nice but the shoes are very narrow with spindly heels. What do you think about them? Does anyone own any?

i love stella mccartney footwear..it's very unlikely and funky, but still girly and chic.

They are super bad quality IMO, because she only uses man made materials to make shoes and handbags. No leather for Stella...which leads to cheap quality shoes that might not last as long as you might want.

Thanks to everyone for their input. I am not going to spend $200 on shoes if they are of poor quality.

Stella does not use leather and fur because she is a vegetarian and animal rights activist. She is a member of PETA, like her father, Sir Paul McCartney (former Beatle) and late mother, Linda.

Just because things aren't made of leather doesn't mean they are automatically of poor quality. As I have never seen Stella's shoes in person I cannot comment but you can't just outright say, something is a manmade material, therefore crap.

I love both of them, the first pair I have seen in lots of different color and heal variations, and I would love to know if anyone knows were I can find them...on sale. Or maybe a good wesite with any of her shoes on sale
