Hm, sounds good, I was not really into the pointy toe thing, round toes are my constant favorite, although I will take a square toe or a small understated point at times. And I always wear chunky heels on winter boots because stilleto heels are not going to cut it on ice and snow.

What's a molded heel? Could you post a photo example? Thanks!

No, they don't. I tried to buy some MJ shoes from Zappos...but they don't ship internationally. I hear you can set up a US forwarding address and get those companies to ship it over here. Not sure how that works tho.

Yeah, it is a wedge heel ... but ... actually, "molded" is a term I made up on the spur of the moment to describe what I was talking about

So a more traditional wedge is made of cork, or some kinda who knows what (hey, I don't make them, I wear them) and then covered in rope, leather, suede, fabric, etc. and it's a standard symmetrical wedge shape.

My favorite ones are these funky shaped ones like the example I showed, that are apparently cast in molds. Ferragamo did a really beautiful black one last year that was featured in its ad campaign. There's another one with a metallic silverish wedge that's featured in somebody's campaign right now ... just saw it in some fashion magazine or other last night. And yes, if inquiring minds must know, I will hunt it down

PS So this kinda illustrates one of my basic shopping principles So I think a standard wedge is a bit too trendy for me, because I keep my shoes until I wear them out, or that's the goal anyway. But these funky ones, they are so cool that it would be perfectly fine to keep wearing them even when wedges are "so last year."
