These Spiky Shoes are Edgy and Daring

These Barbara Gongini spiky shoes walk a fine line between two fashion worlds. There is a plethora of goth-chic fashion out there, as well as a variety of smart-casual styles; however, these two styles don't often meet. Indeed, it would be considered quite bold to wear spiked bracelets, five-inch pumps and jet-black polyvinyl pants to a job interview -- or most job interviews, depending on what you do.

In these designs, Gongini infuses business-like attire -- loafers, dress shoes and the like -- with pointy, edgy fashion. Such clothing is not meant for a formal environment, of course. It is intended as a fashion statement: a means of walking down the street and turning heads. Stats for Poignantly Pointy Footwear Trending: Older & Buzzing
