Style on Trial: Cesare Paciotti’s platform ‘Donna’ pumps

Platform_shoesThese shoes look a little bit like a craft project of some kind – and we don’t necessarily mean that in a bad way, you understand. They’re Cesare Paciotti’s “Donna” pumps, and they’re one of three designs featuring this multicolured patchwork on the heels and sides. Like them? We go back and forward on this one: we think they could be fabulous with the right outfit, but then again, we also think we might just prefer them sitting out on display. What about you, though? Is it love, hate, or something in-between?

    Yikes. That’s a rough way to start the morning…I vote no. They look clownish.
    Oh god. I just remembered what they remind me of. The clownish jumpsuits by some avant-garde brand you posted a while back on a wear-or-die challenge.

    I like the look of them, but I wouldn’t actually wear them. I like the colors, but the shape is a bit too much.

    These look like a patchwork quilt on your feet, plus, they’re a really unflattering shape, I hope that no one would actually go out and spend money on these?

    I like them a lot, but I’d like them even more if those heel-stacks at the top weren’t so extreme.

    I agree with some of the others. It’s an okay idea and colour combination, but that shape is just so wrong. The large awkward shaped heel, the weird platform pad under the sole…pure fug.
