John Galliano Fall 2009 shoes: not for the faint hearted

John-galiano-shoes

 We wonder if the models John Galliano uses in his shows have to sign some kind of disclaimer before hitting the runway. You know, something to the effect of "I promise not to sue you if I fall off the shoes and break my leg". Or maybe the shoes themselves come with a warning, like you get a Disney World: "You must be this tall to ride: pregnant women and those with a fear of heights are advised to avoid."

To this, we would also urge those with a fear of pom poms (What?! It's a real phobia, seriously!) to avoid these too. And those who ever have to, you know, walk

    I don’t suppose he made a pair for himself and tried them out before he made those poor models wear them? Good God!
    Save us all from the male perspective!

    I seem to remember Vivienne Westwood subjected her models to the similar platform heel in the 90’s. These look just as lethal. Viv DID wear them too though.

    Sometimes I really wonder if designers know that the shoes they create must let the models walk…

    Shoes for vertically challenged fashion conscious eskimoes?

    And this is why I could never be a model. That and the fact that I’m not ridiculously tall and thin. But mostly this.

    I love these! I am weird like that though when it comes to shoes.

    Do you think this counts as stilt-walking experience for the models?
