>> I know the shoe fest is a bit tiresome but I did want to make a reMARK about these Marc Jacobs shoes at the show as Katie Grand made a comment about them saying, "This is why I wear flats!". Seeking out interesting flats that don't just start and end with brogues and ballet pumps has been a bit of a mission of mine ever since my unfortunate clutz attack of a fall last season (for those that asked, the ankle is sort of mended but still twinges a bit sometimes….must get it checked out…). So yes I was all-hailing Mr Jacobs for the flat-attack, until I saw the dreaded big toe thong. Try as I might but the damn thing just makes my feet irritated, blister or bleed. Once again though, Melissa have come up with a slightly questionable but most definitely tempting option in collaboration with Vivienne Westwood again. These were part of the Red Label show but will be available as early as mid-November for ¬£120. They're a tamed version of Westwood's original Rocking Horse shoe shape with detachable wings if you don't happen to feel like channelling Hermes, the messenger god. Whilst not strictly speaking completely flat, they are at one solid level, like creepers so I'm guessing they're equally as comfy. Like I said though, I'm pondering them until I see them in the flesh.
