SAY IT AIN'T SO - DANGEROUS SHOES ON THEIR WAY OUT!






According to nymag.com, our runways will never be the same. The reign of taller than a skyscaper heels will become extinct. Sure models have been falling left and right but I love to look at these six, seven inch heeled shoes. I know I could never wear them, they are practically impossible for a model to walk in, let alone a normal person but I like to look.

"I’m pretty much over the five-inch-high platform and girls tripping all over the place. Granted, I’ve been responsible for some of that … [I]t’s terrible. I have sympathy, I do. Next season’s shoes should be more manageable, I’m feeling ready for a more refined, lighter, more feminine look "

I am excited to see what Rodarte comes up with and it will be nice to actually be able to wear the shoes that models do, without worrying about hurting your ankle.

i knew it! the shoes are just so ridiculous, as much as i love them, it's just not right, and it kind of defeats the purpose if you can't walk in these shoes outdoors. i mean, in my city there is cobblestone, gravel and stairs, and railroad tracks, it's hard enough to manuver in flats!

jujusheart2- I did the green nail polish this past summer and I have never had so many comments on my nails. It was all good too. I cant wait to do it again next summer.

jennine- they are ridiculous and i feel bad for the models who fall left and right but I will miss looking at them. I could never wear them either. I am already to much of a klutz and I walk everywhere, that would just be asking for trouble.

Wow..those look painful. Cool shoes but I'll definitely break my ankles in those.
