Onion Heels: a new trend in footwear?

onion-heels

These, readers, are “onion heels”, apparently – although some of the readers at Shoeperwoman suggested “goiter heels” may be a more appropriate term for them.

We’ll let you be the judge of that, but tell us: what do you think of them? We think the disproportionate heel on a boring black court shoe looks like some kind of strange experiment gone badly wrong, but if you disagree and think these are the best thing since… onions… they’re £220 from Far Fetch.

    First association: that heel has got a tumor.

    And when a shoe is making me think of an illness, it’s not a sexy shoe for me…

    *I just had the disturbing image of it being contagious and turning all my shoes in THAT*

    The heels of Frankensteins Bride. I mean the heel looks like it’s swollen.

    Never thought I’d say this, ever, really, but “Damn. That shoe has a ghetto booty” was the first thought that came to mind.
