Style on Trial: Miu Miu’s sparrow-print platform pumps

These shoes divided opinions over at Shoeperwoman, with some people finding them utterly adorable, and others shuddering at the sight of the chunky platform and heels. They’re by Miu Miu, and are one of the most recognisable shoes of this season: they sold out in a day at Net-a-Porter, which gives us some idea what the shoe-buying public (or at least the part of it that can afford to drop £365 on a pair of shoes) thinks of them, but what do YOU think of them, fashion jurors? The last word in fabulous, or too chunky for words?

If it’s the former, your best bet is to keep checking back at the likes of Net-a-Porter, in the hope that more stock becomes available soon!

    I think they’re pretty fantastic if not a bit chunky… you’d have to wear em with something achingly specific!

    I’m in the shudder-at-the-too-chunky-heel camp. The rest is a nice enough shape but perhaps better as a wedge?

    I like them a lot. The chunkiness gives them a certain 70s vibe, and I can totally imagine them being worn with some vintage-looking flares.

    Love love love! If I had that kind of money lying about they would be in my wardrobe now. Alas, I have to eat.

    I’m coveting these so badly. Not as much as Loubs though. I even made them my “du jour” Monday.

    Normally I’m not a fan of chunky heels and shoes with bird patterns, but this is an exception. They’re really pretty even though they have two of my shoe pet peeves. Bless miu miu!

    Love love the pattern. However, I think that the heel might be just a BIT too much. Might’ve looked better as a cone or stiletto.

    Personally I think they are horribly ugly and too chunky.

    Im a bit biased here, as I dont find it aesthetically pleasing when ladies in cute dresses wear chunky shoes, as the one in question

    I do see the charm in the flying doves/ swallos? HOWEVER I would rather have that print on a window (haha :-D) or on pillowcase
