The return of pointy toe shoes FW 08/09
I felt it coming and sure enough...
the platform is about to give way to the return of the pointy toe...

you can see it in the more directional collections in paris...
ie- balenciaga, givenchy, etc...

i promise to come back with pics...

Can't we have both? Just imagine... the platform's ability to not allow us to feel intense pain in the balls of our feet plus all the leg-lengthening of the pointy toe! Is that too much to ask? Damn. I guess we'll get all those articles about foot surgery again in fashion magazines all over again.

I actually like the pointed toe vs. platform.
I'm too tall to wear platforms.

yes- it's coming -whether you like it or not...
but you still have some time if you are a trend follower...
this won't hit the masses right away...
but the fashion forward crowd is no doubt already on this like crazy!...
:p

I love both styles, change just means getting to try a new style (or old)
