These stilettos, by Alexander McQueen for his Spring 2009 collection, look like they have been painted on, thanks to the bizarre molded toe dividers. If it wasn't for the 5â€ molded heel, the skin-coloured versions of the pumps would be virtually invisible.
The shoes bare a strong resemblance to a latex sockette, or some kind of footwear made for the water. I just hope there are no toenails embossed on that leather.
Implications - The McQueen stilettos are a whole other branch of strange and unusual fashion, but they are intriguing no less to the footwear-obsessed fashionista. Stressing a balance between comfort and style, the toe-lettos are making waves in the fashion world as women's curiosity is piqued by the shoes which are aimed at the atypical foot.
