Amazing Finsk Shoes

I had intended to post about these shoes last month, but without a computer I never got around to it. The original image I saw, I hadn't inspected too closely, but initially thought it was 2 or 3 shoes stacked together. It wasn't until, I got an email from Solestruck that it dawned on me, it was actually one shoe and an amazing one at that.
The heel height is roughly 6 1/2" with a 4" platform and they're 'reasonably' wearable considering how avant garde they are. I did say wearable not practical! I think they are stunning. Astounding actually and a real piece of art. The design doesn't border on the 'too ugly' or 'too clumpy' in my opinion, which I think would be easy to fall into. Overall, it's still a flattering, slimline shape that fits the foot well. The mix of colours work well together and it's just really impressive. The image above was taken from the Solestruck lookbook and I don't think they look too 'alien' on the model.
I also spotted this pair on the site (below). I love shoes with cut-out sections, kinda similar to the Dolce & Gabbana wedges which were missing the 'instep' of the sole, remember those? I think Jeffrey Campbell recently brought out a couple of styles like that too. Anyway, it's more a mix of the heel and sole that's missing from these! A bit of both, but not quite either. Difficult to describe, so I'll let the images do the talking.
The heel on these is 7 1/2" with a 2 1/2" platform. Anything weird like this, I just want to immediately try on and see if I could walk in them, don't you?


  1. woah woah woah. how exactly are girls supposed to walk in these?! daaaang. this is really crazy but cool at the same time.

    i just came across your blog today. It's awesome.


  2. Gawd my head hurts looking at these bad boys, I dunno, call me crazy, but I don't really wanna do math when I wearing a shoe ;)

    By the way should manage to score a pair of these...drop me a note and I'll send you the details of a rad chiropractor I know.

  3. Thank you Carrie, welcome! Quite surprising this pair are produced and available to the masses as it were, as opposed to used in some fashion shoot or show.

    Antigone-haha, seriously doubt a $1000 shoe will drop into my lap unfortunately, but I'll keep it in mind!!

  4. There's just ONE WEEK LEFT to win one of three £100/$160 gift certificates to spend on the shoes of your runway dreams courtesy of FINSK x VERY GLOSSY!
