Scary Shoes: Burberry Prorsum 130MM patent pointed toe pumps

OK, what’s with all of the scary shoes lately? Did the fashion world implement some ruling that all footwear must now look like a predator from Silent Hill? Did we miss that memo? These Burberry Prorsum numbers look like they could do some serious damage if they put their mind (or rather, their toes) to it. More than that, though, they just scare us, for some indefinable reason. Did the Fashion Police once find themselves on the wrong end of an extremely pointed toe as children, in an incident they’ve now blocked from memory? Who knows. If you just know that you love these and want to buy them, however, you can click here to do it – they’re £582 at Louisa Via Roma.

    I actually really like them! They’re very severe and shiny, so unlike anything I would veer wear, but I can see Queen Michelle from Kingdom of style wearing them.

    I’m with Julia – I really like them too but not sure about them on my feet. Grace Jones would rock these babies!

    I want, scratch that, I need these in my life. Think how powerful/wicked/slightly evil you’d feel with them on your feet.

    These remind me of Severus Snape. I’m not even sure why

    These are actually really cool shoes and very high fashion looking. They look painful, but its a genius idea 🙂
