And I mean ALL of them – this season at fashion week, seem, well, how should I put this gently – impractical ?? For fashion week and certainly for life. Thigh high patent boots – enough said. And how do you gracefully walk through the Tuileries in a white patent boot with a heel so high and thin they must certainly turn beige after?

But to be fair, a lot of editors and others are in sensible heels or sneakers for all the running to cafes shows in a timely manner and to get back write reviews or stories for their respective magazines / websites. It just makes me wonder, what happens to those shoes after the shows? Do they go into an archive of shoes past? Were they borrowed just for the occasion? Will they wear them to office?
