Everyone gasped with sheer terror, part amazement, and in trepidation as the models clopped out during the Alexander McQueen Spring/Summer 2010 show. The unforgettable footwear forged futuristic fantasies and signaled that platforms are here to stay (for a few seasons longer). The ladies over at Vogue UK showed us civilians the great heights models went through during the show.
The Armadillo booties measured in at only a mere 12 inches, perfect for those vertically challenged, those with foot fetishes, and en pointe ballerinas. I will think twice the next time I wince & whine about my 5″ Loubies that have rendered my toesies useless.
