Update: when I first penned the post below, I wasn’t sure who the creative brain was behind this quirky pair of feline footwear. Thanks to comments left by knowledgable fashionisers, I can now tell you they’re Charlotte Olympia’s ‘Smoking Cat’ wedges.
Cute, or just plain gimmicky?
Spotted on the streets of Paris these shoes may not be kitten heels (au contraire, they seem to have a rather high platform) but they certainly are kittens for your feet. Another mystery shoe, I’m not sure who designed them (if you do know, we’d love you to comment below) but the black velvet and embroidered cat faces sure make them stand out. As for my lead-in question, I think that comes down to styling: a pair of fishnet stockings and cuffed black pants gives them an air of classic Parisian glamour.
What do you think of the shoes? We’ve love to hear your comments, which again you can leave below.
