Elizabeth BB Contemplates LV

How do I love this heel?  Let me count the ways:

1. It is straight instead of curvy.

2. It is substantial instead of spindly.

3. It is, granted, high, but the heel's sturdiness makes it seem not precarious.

4. It is architectural.  I see skyscrapers.

5. It is strong and exudes confidence.  To rewrite a maxim from Michael Keaton's character in The Paper: "A clipboard and a confident heel will get you inside any building."  (Aside: Do I want to carry a clipboard?  Nooo.  How about a leather-bound notebook?  No Blackberry, either, please!)

6. It is from Louis Vuitton Fall 2010, demonstrating that Marc can indeed make an elegant shoe.  He just often prefers not to.  Bartleby the Shoemaker, I guess.

I love the sturdiness of this heel...so much easier to walk in, despite its height.:)SarahD

They are gorgeous. I have Prada heels with the same heel width and height. I don't find them at all easy to walk in even as they are so substantial.

I love love love these whether I could walk in them ? I guess that's not the point. Thanks for the shoe inspiration xx

My favorite thing is when a designer diverges from the current "norm" and introduces a shape which has been shunned for the last several seasons. What's so fascinating is that I've become so convinced by a trend that when someone "brings back" a heel like this, I feel like I have to get used to it all over again. Yet it's been there all the time; editors just tell us it's "out" so they can sell us stilettos.

It's a beautiful shoe.
