The Pointy Toe

Behold: the pointy toe, back with a bang. Only less about a bang, more about Wang. It was only a matter of time before this trend saw its resurgence. And while I’ll almost always endorse the weird shit Alexander Wang produces–give me a cape and I will wear it. Heck, give me a fur ball and I will own that too–I’m conflicted on this particular shoe. Something isn’t resonating: maybe the covers too much foot. Maybe the implementation of a shorter heel is alluding too close to kitten heel paraphernalia, or maybe, just maybe, I’m too weird a Repeller for a shoe this…sophisticated? There’s probably something to be said about the revert to a more simple silhouette, I’m just not going to say it. I will however commend the use of stingray, you can’t see it, but it’s there, and offer a hearty salute to the ankle cuff, so properly on trend. That said, are you on team point? Do tell.

That said too now, it’s officially fashion week so here is my shameless summoning to request that you either follow me on Twitter or Tumblr or both as I’ll be live social networking like a real human with a mobile keyboard! Human! Keyboard! Samsung has offered me their new Galaxy Note phone/tablet hybrid to test drive over the week before its official launch at the end of February so the photo resolution is pretty fancy. Sharp and what have you–that’s my hook. Bye.
