Last week’s Weird Shoe Wednesday was pretty gross so this week, I chose some very pretty shoes. I wouldn’t necessarily say they are weird-looking so much as it’s a novel concept and I really hope it actually works.
Pasquale Fabrizio, go-to cobbler/shoe guru for Hollywood, is releasing his own line of shoes called Q by Pasquale, an ALL-GLASS collection of high-heeled sandals. No, not just some transparent synthetic material. Glass. As in what Cinderella was sporting way back when. At first, I thought it might just be a case of creating shoes as an art piece (like these other glass shoes featured previously). But no–Fabrizio actually intends for these heels to be worn (probably only by the Hollywood elite, but still). And if there’s anyone that could make it happen, it’d be Fabrizio, if his track record is to be believed at all.
Me personally, I’m a clumsy, stumbling, bumbling idiot, so I’d be very scared if anyone around me was wearing glass shoes. I really don’t want to be the reason one of my friend’s glass shoes shatters into a million pieces, leaving them out of a very fancy/expensive shoe and probably with a lot of nasty cuts on their foot. No, I think I’ll stick to good ol’ malleable leather.
And because I’m still having second thoughts about the weirdness of these glass shoes and wanted to stay true to Weird Shoe Wednesdays, some Giraffe heels, after the jump.
