I am simultaneously thrilled and terrified to behold Brian Atwood’s ‘Pazza’ pumps:
Holy Moly, that’s a whole lotta shoe!
With all of those feathers, you need the confidence to completely ‘own’ this type of look. Otherwise, you run the very real risk of appearing as though you are being attacked by a pair of exotic – and hungry – beasties who are busily nibbling away at you from the toes on up.
As an art piece, I find these truly dig-able. They are, however, not so practical in my everyday, semi-rural life . . . if I lived in a more metropolitan area with scads of gala art openings, perhaps these would have an actual chance of finding a wearable moment. So, these are obviously meant for some other shoe-diva than this particular shoe-blogger.
Oh well, I’d love to hear if, with what outfits, and to what events our readers would wear such staggeringly ‘not-for-wallflower’ shoes?
