These Valentino peep toes have just been voted Sexiest Shoes of the Year by 35,000 people voting in a contest created by Footwear News and Saks Fifth Avenue.
We're... kinda surprised? Don't get us wrong: they're pretty shoes. But "pretty" is not the same thing as "sexy", and, well, with an entire YEAR'S worth of footwear to choose from, we don't think these would've been our first choice, let's put it that way.
What do you think? Are these really the sexiest shoes of 2011? If not, what would you nominate in their place?
