Topshop ‘Sherbert’ Bow Heels

These ‘Sherbert’ Bow heels from Topshop remind me of the Harajuku Lovers ‘Dobson’ bow-tie booties that I saw last week (check them after the jump). But they look much more sensible, very elegant, very attractive. The upper is made of two-toned leather with two bow decorations, one at the vamp, one at the toe. The heel stands 4 inches high. I like them. They pop without being too flashy like the ‘Dobsons’. A nice, calm way to end an otherwise hectic Friday at the office. Alright, enjoy your weekends everybody!

Weird Shoe Wednesdays: Lady Gaga’s ‘Armadillo’ Heels

Welcome back to Weird Shoe Wednesdays, that time in the week when I get the screwface and a bunch of animated question marks start blinking above my head.

This week’s winner: the “Armadillo” heels by Alexander McQueen, as worn by fashion icon/popstar Lady Gaga in her new music video, “Bad Romance.” The snakeskin monstrosities have 10-inch heels, standing 12 inches high altogether in a sort of claw-like posture. The shoes make a short cameo in Lady Gaga’s video but that was enough apparently. The “Armadillos” and all its siblings look like they’ll be selling out pretty soon. Personally, I think the only benefit the “Armadillos” could ever have that would make them in any way appealing would be if the material was as strong of a protective shell as real armadillos’ shells. Like if the shoes were nearly bullet-proof, military and law enforcement might have to look into getting some pairs to go with their bullet-proof vests.
