Haute Heels

I rode my bike along upper Polk Street the other day. I found some really hot heels from Jil Sander and YSL. I love it when all you need is a pair of heels like these to make a pencil skirt or black dress complete. As for men we all cry out because we can't have these cool designs. Only Miu Miu and Prada makes  some really hot shoes for men in the sea of pointy toe lace ups or logos. In retrospect, in the late 80's there were some really cutting edge designs coming out of Europe and Japan. The Japanese fashion movement and JPG trailblazing the hot runways really pushed design on a more experimental plane. One particular shoe designer Tokio Kumagui made some really amazing shoes but I couldn't find them for men at all, even in Tokyo.
