Manolo says, here is the Manolo’s latest column for the Express of the Washington Post.
I’ve been told that I must stop wearing pointy toed shoes because of a foot disorder. Could you recommend some non-ugly, non-flats that would be appropriate?
Manolo says, this friend of the Manolo is in luck. For the few years, around the turn of the millennium, the pointy-pointy shoes had come to completely dominate the shoe fashions.
During the height of this mania, the tips of these stiletto-heeled shoes of pointiness began to lengthen, to the extent that the Manolo feared that the stylish ladies would soon curl the toes of their shoes upward, stuffing them with moss and using the silver chains to secure the ends of them to their knees, as did the ridiculous and foppish dandies of the Middle Ages.
But, as such things do, the fashion tides began to turn, and the round-toed shoes and the square-toed shoes slowly reappeared on feets of the young and beautiful.
This it is especially good news for the super fantastic working girls who must spend many hours walking and standing on their feets.
Here is the attractive round-toed suede pump in the delicious plum color from the Belle by Sigerson Morrison. It is also available in the more conservative black suede.
