I think the most recent fashion design that’s so over before it’s even begun is Manolo Blahnik‘s slingback shoes – for men! In all truth I think they’re great and would love to use them in a shoot. I just can’t see them catching on for the masses – but do we really care about the masses? These shoes are for the true fashionisto. I’m sure I’m going to see them on some handsome men in London this summer.
There are several other shoes in the collection that I think are fabulous and great for most men. A word of advice though, please get a pedicure. (BLOWW does a pedicure especially for men). It’s so disgusting to be in the tube and see so many awful looking feet and overgrown toe nails. No matter how stylish you look if you’ve neglected a basic grooming routine you can never look good!
The collection is available in London in February 2008.
