The Crazy Shoes At Milan Fashion Week Have To Be Seen To Be Believed

Would you wear them?

The fashion at Milan Fashion Week is always quite bold and feminine. Italians seem to know exactly how to make a dress that turns even the most androgynous woman into Sofia Loren.

This season, though, it wasn’t the dresses that caught my eye. After looking through the collections, they all had one thing in common: crazy shoes.

Some might even call the extravagant footwear OTT, but while most of us prefer simple strappy stilettos, Fashion Week tends to be a bit more creative when it comes to shoe trends, with models and fashion junkies alike happily sporting conventionally ‘ugly shoes’, such as bedazzled Birkenstocks, flatform brogues and chunky neon sneakers. (As a bonus, breaking in these types of shoes is much less painful than breaking in stilettos.)

However, all of the above seemed modest and almost boring compared to the shoes I saw strutting Milan’s runways last week, including these beauties…
