As you know I’m a shoe junkie – flats, heels, trainers, and boots – I love them all. I used to be a pointed toe girl Prada’s, Gucci and Dolce Gabbana – I loved them all – having small feet a pointed toe looked great and was very stylish. Then I bought a pair of platforms with a round toe and was hooked – height and comfort; just bliss.

My love affair with platforms began (actually for the second time around, as in the 70’s I owned quite a few pairs of amazing platforms – wooden clogs with flowers engraved and rust suede boots with a huge platform and spike heels!) and they have been the shoes of choice for several years now. I’ve just bought a pair of black suede Prada platforms, which I love and then low and behold I spied a pair of platformless pointy-toed shoe and fell in love all over again. How cool do they look? I tried them on and wow they felt so uncomfortable and flat. After my towering and extremely comfortable platforms they felt like instruments of torture.

All has not been lost – not one to throw a good shoe out, I raided the shoe cupboard and unearthed in their shoe bags a pair of Prada’s, a pair of Gucci (with possibly the wrong shaped heel) and a fabulous pair of two-tone Dolce Gabbana’s. Almost as good as a lottery win. So far I’ve worn the Dolce Gabbana’s and the Prada’s – think they look pretty cool too. Good heel height and a great pointed toe. I’m not about to give up my platforms but I’ve dipped my toe into the water of the pointed toe again.
