These shoes are definitely a ‘marmite’ fashion moment - you either love them or hate them. Whilst many fashionistas are going wild for these high tops with a twist, others are viewing them as a passing fad. I can safely say, however, that I fully embrace this item of foot fashion.
The trend first appeared on the Spring/Summer catwalk of Isabel Marant and then propelled into the public domain with celebrities snapping them up and other brands emulating this hidden heeled beauty. It is an instant solution to anyone struggling to choose between practicality and the irresistible allure of heels.
