What Do You Think? Over-the-Top Kicks

by on July 10, 2012

They’ve probably made you break your neck a time or two – but was it always in a good way?

I’m not going to lie. I once tried on this pair of eye-popping Jeffrey Campbell heels that made me look like my ankles were about to snap as I teetered on the unstable wedge-like contraptions beneath me. They were studded, bright, and impossible to walk in, if that gives you a better idea (and yes, I kept my dignity and handed them back to the salesman, and proceeded to run away). These sorts of heels sell like crazy…and don’t get me wrong, I’m all for taking risks both fashionably and comfort-wise, but some of these shoes are just doing too much. Would you agree?

Oh, and don’t think it’s just the ladies that are sporting these over-the-top shoes! What do you have to say about this Jeremy Scott x adidas pair?
