I remember the pair I had owned in the early 2000’s. They were burgundy and olive patent leather wing tips, with the mandatory chunky heel and buckled strap.
My approach to buying shoes has since changed from functionality to their artistic value. A pattern that reminds of a sofa from the 1970s? Count me in. Rhinestone studded skulls with wings? Most certainly. Oversized bows in leopard print? Bring it on. Being able to walk in them has become a somewhat secondary concern.
