I'm very tempted - anyone got these or any similar?

OOh steady.
If platform same colour I'm spinning it out.

I agree all my platforms bar one pair are in the charity shop. Look so dated and ugly now

I'm pleased about the move back to thinner soles too WhoKnows. Those huge platforms built in to facilitate extra high heels are actually quite ugly I think. Unwalkable in too for the most part.

Manolo Blahnik was apparently horrified by the built in platform trend and refused ever to make a shoe like it. There's a useless factoid for you. Bet you all feel much better for knowing that grin

They have some but with a v small platform in HM sale, was tempted but on spending ban

Sudden vivid memory of white shoe polish for my school Dunlop green flash. grin

I think, with all the monochrome around at the moment, these are going to be everywhere - the next step on from nude heels. I would wait and get a lower pair, those are seriously high.

Yup. But I couldn't wear today. Just too too colc

Saw a pic of some with stone slim trousers looked great I have the mango ankle strap ones love pointy but I also love bare feet!

I used to wear them back in the 80s and scuff marks came off pretty easily with Clarks white shoe polish.

I like the move back towards thinner soles and pointy toes but sadly my back won't let me get away with heels very often now, so I just look and admire. I am possibly too old for white I think now.

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 28-Mar-13 20:27:58

I wondered that too Whoknows.

And yes the getting them dirty thing would be a pain. But for me they'd be 'going out' shoes

WhoKnowsWhereTheChocolateGoes Thu 28-Mar-13 20:16:22

I am puzzled at the instruction "Do Not Wash" on the Top Shop ones. Really? Do people put leather shoes in washing machines?

Fuckitthatlldo Thu 28-Mar-13 20:09:36

I really think that well styled, white high heels can totally transcend their tacky reputation.

Can't remember where I saw it, but on a style blog recently there was a woman wearing them with a black and white monochrome outfit and they looked really stylish. I also think they could work with a jeans and blazer type combo.

My main worry would be that I would filth them up in about two seconds flat.

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 28-Mar-13 20:08:54

Would need tanned feet to wear them I reckon - goosepimples and purple flesh just not going to work with white stilettos.

I live in Essex. I dare not go near this look!

Had an email shot from L K Bennett today of some clearly very on trend and well made white pointy high-heeled courts.But it's no good - I'm of an age to have worn white high heels and then to have come to think them very naff - and now I just can't get over it. Wouldn't say I'm usually set in my ways but I clearly am on this one!

Wearing pointy shoes and bare feet as we speak - I am alive!

( oh and STAND up all day )

in.. er ... a portakabin

NinaNannar Thu 28-Mar-13 18:23:37

i WISH that all of fashion land had to spend a week being smart casual no denim for work wear.

then bloody try and look on trend

NinaNannar Thu 28-Mar-13 18:22:57

oh I am BORED of people in bare feet and heels

NO ONE In real life can do this

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 28-Mar-13 17:24:38

You see this is how I'll look in them.

Yeap just like that wink

I've got some very pointy Kors ones in snakeskin I got in NAP sale last year but its just too cold for bare feet at the moment and possibly until May according to the weather forecast sad

NinaNannar Thu 28-Mar-13 16:51:56

YUP - THE RI ONES BEING lower are far more wearable I feel.

Have you not had a pair before MrsCB? It is your heritage.

I love a pointy shoe, round toe too k-middy for my taste. My Pigalles could have your eye out.

MrsCampbellBlack Thu 28-Mar-13 16:51:08

the RI ones are gorgeous.

I would ideally like a smidge lower for wearability but am guessing loads will be coming into the shops soon.

Also not sure if topshop come up big or small as I'm a very small size 3 [trotter feet]

QueefLatina Thu 28-Mar-13 16:43:02

I have been thinking about getting these for weeks but I know I would trash them

NinaNannar Thu 28-Mar-13 16:42:15

AHA now CB , I got some neon blue/purple ones in RI sale at xmas that shape.
they make my old trusty autograph suede platform heels ( colours various ) look very out of fashion.
THink are a bit lower than those, but def pointy, Not as pointy as late 90s ones tho
