Shoe du jour

Now there are pointy shoes and then there are ridiculously pointy shoes. And although I’d have to say these fall into the category of ridiculously pointy, they are really wickedly smart. From Spring/Summer 2013, an elegant, pointed toe ankle boot by Marc Jacobs simply called the “Pony Chelsea boot”. ¬†And it’s just that, a low-top black pony Chelsea boot. Well disguised, there are wide black elastic gussets at the sides along with a pull tab in back, so they are a cinch to put on or take off. But what makes this boot special is 2.25″ cylindrical heel. The roundness of the heel compliments the severely pointed toe. The pony hair puts it over the top.
