    I love the look and lines of these pointies but the price ($ 250) is too much for me.

    Everyone think points are still in for spring?

    Anyone know where I can get some affordable super pointies?

    well, they are in where i live. and that's the old continent. i have no idea about the USA, sorry. but i have noticed stores have started to bring in rouder toes (which i hate, but c'est la vie). i think it will depend on the public's response. they already tried to incorporate them in the F/W and failed, so maybe there's hope for me :grrr:

    Can't say that I am a pointy shoe girl myself, but I have 2 Swedish friends who look darling in them :flower: I guess it is all about about the presentation>>>

    I love and mostly wear pointy shoes but the ones you posted are "too pointy" that they are too harsh looking, maybe because of the metallic material :unsure:

    I'd have to say that super-pointy shoes are out since quite a while, pointy ones will always be in style sort of...

    The ones originally posted are a bit too pointy, no?

    I have alot of shoes from DSW. :p


    Pointy toes rule. Of course, I always get the "Are you an elf?" and "Don't those hurt?" comments from people at my school.. :wacko:

    pointy/pointed toes are extremely common in europe and thank god comments are being left out :rolleyes:

    however, i think there is a limit to pointy- ness B)
    if its starts to look too harsch, then the point is too long :innocent:

    when i went to american for a holiday, i was surprised that not many women wore shoes, let alone pointy shoes. but the thing that totally shocked me is people gave me nasty comments when i was walking! somebody told me "nice WITCH shoes!!", it was amusing.

    edited: and i agree with you about the point. some shoes are really pointy but they don't have that harsh look. it's all about how wide the shoe is, i think.

    You know, I generally like Americans. They're often friendly and open. I guess the down-side to this openess is that some people are thoughtless and think they can comment on anything...

    :wacko:

    I was also surprised by the way people would comment on things when I was in LA...

    I love pointy shoes...no super elf pointed one but the kinda square ones... Round toe shoes make my feet too small for my body I wear a 6.5...I end up looking deformed
