>> I'm dubious about this mythical 'heel come-down' that we're SUPPOSED to be going through as though it's a sort of spring summer detox after a night of heel headonism.  If fashion week attendees were anything to go by, it seems that many a woman (and a few men too!) are pretty much determined to prop themselves right up there with some challenging footwear (let's ignore the fact that the fashion week circus is in itself a bit of a warped reality eh?).  

And so sculptural fantasists like Julia Lundsten who has continued her Finsk Project No. 1 to make these new Project No. 2 shoes may have a problem on her hands since she's not actually putting these feet feats into production, and clearly some die-hard heelists will most certainly want them on her feet for the purpose of stalking across the Tulieries.  I'm not one of those brave souls but I definitely have something inside me raging and wishing I had the shoe balls to do it…

For firmer feet on the ground, for A/W 10-11 Finsk have developed that wedge shape which upturn the point so that it sticks out at the top of the wedge rather than the bottom…

  10. Damn you Susie! I was with Julia Lundsten in her studio today and she said that no one had covered these shoes, so I was going to do a feature tomorrow. And you’ve beat me to it!
    The shoes are incredible, but so is the rest of her collection, I’ve ordered three pairs and bought a Spring Summer pair today.

    OMG!! I have to agree with Alicia – Sea Of Ghosts; fabulous shoes that you can’t walk in! =P But hey isn’t that why we love shoes, because they’re pretty?

  12. Clara says:

  13. Allison says:

    I love these! Susie, you could totally pull this off! I love the more conservative ones at the bottom, too. They’re probabaly okay to walk in since it’s a wedge! :D

    I don’t know how or where you would even start to try to walk in those heels! Amazing.

    Hi Susie,
    I passed you and your boyf walking up Wardour street today as I walked in the opposite direction, I really wanted to say Hi but I didn’t want to interrupt you guys. So Hi, I have enjoyed your blog for a few years and haven’t commented before, I wandered if I would see you/other London bloggers at some point around London (this ocured to me when I bumped into Pelayo -literally- in Covent Garden a while ago). Saw Paul Whitehouse and Harry Enfield about three seconds after seeing you, so an exciting day all round!
    Have a lovely weekend, Jo

    Alexandra: Wowzers…three pairs! You are a fan! Apologies…. it was Varg PR’s press day yesterday so a lot of people would have seen them along with myself!
    Jo: You shoulda said ‘Hi!’… I’m not sure about a London bloggers meet up…. I mean, there are more and more events being organised for bloggers specifically so that’s the only time when I ever really see London/UK bloggers… I’m not very proactive though when it comes to organising meet-ups
    Bel: Yup I am indeed coming to Sydney… not sure what my schedule is like but hopefully there’s time to meet up etc… just flag me down if you see me!

  20. ICO says:

    Hello broken ankles!! They do look amazing though.

  31. Annie says:

    Let’s be honest, people are always going to want to be taller and have better legs. And no-one will ever,. EVER want a shoe with a moustache.

  32. susie_bubble says:

    Annie: Is there something I’m not seeing? Where is this moustache?

  33. Lucy says:

    oh my, I really really really need to have them on my feet… on ward and upward!
