Alexander McQueens creations
Noritaka Tatehana heel-less platforms
Which brings me to Dsquared. They have totally pulled it out of the bag. Amazingly simple yet effective. Ingenious. The Spine Heel boots have made it to my wallpaper background, although at $1,495 so just under £1000, that will be as close as I'll be getting for now.
And finally, although not the most beautiful shoe over-all, I bow down to Karl Lagerfeld for creating these: the Chanel gun heel. It almost upsets me that this shoe has so much potential but has fallen short. This potentially ledgendary heel looks like it's been stuck on to my Nan's 'family gatherings' shoe. You win some you lose some.
