Is it me or are pointy toed heels back in this winter?

How do my fashion focussed ladies feel about it? Is it a good thing? I bought these t'other day and they are yummy but they are pointy toed, have i made a faux pas?

black suede

Well, they are pointy yet rather elegant...

I've seen a lot of pointys in magazines so I guess they may be back. Hope so - I've got loads of them.

Thanks - not just me then, I have a few as well - but worry that all my stylish almond toe and round toe heels are desperately old fashioned now.

LaBelleFrotheur Mon 15-Aug-11 15:37:37

Ah but they'll be back!

I'm awaiting the return of the square toe just for one particular, treasured pair of slingbacks.

Oooh the square toe? where did that go? I have none of these - but havent seen them for ages.....i would wear them anyway

LaBelleFrotheur Mon 15-Aug-11 15:47:17

That's what I thought until I got them out... I think I'll wait grin, it's not like I have a shortage of black slingbacks.

I've got some great pointys too! One pair in particular are perfect for work. Fingers crossed that we're right.

oh go on - do tell me more - are they ever so glam? Glad you liked mine. DH rolled eyes and tutted - apparently i have lots of suede shoes.. fool.

did pointy toes go away...i am way out of touch...

nice shoes OP.

BulletWithAName Mon 15-Aug-11 16:07:41

Well, if they are, I won't be wearing them, they're vile! Love my round toed shoes grin

I lurve pointy toe shoes.
I have huge feet and round toed anythings look like small barges so I refuse to buy them - hideous things!
I can buy square toes IF they look like they were going to be pointy but then the point was cut off; but the big clompy square toes also look like barges (or aircraft carriers) and are equally a no-no.

Thanks WNS. They are rather yummy - i hadnt seen any like this for ages and then a load come along so I thought, they must be coming back! Most of my wardrobe consists of round toes at the moment but i have plenty of pointy lurking at the back

They are old vintage Chanel (oooh, get me) and are mostly black fabric with a metallic (bronze-ish) toe and strap (more slingbacks). They have a tiny pearl detail with minuscule interlinked 'C' logo on (you'd need a magnifying glass to see it) and have a kitten heel. They sound ghastly but they just work. They were bought in wealthier times wink ie before the child!

LaBelleFrotheur Mon 15-Aug-11 16:16:35

And, your DH must surely know you can never have enough suede.

voiceofnoreason Mon 15-Aug-11 16:22:28

oooh get you! but kitten heel? Glad to hear they just work!

voiceofnoreason Mon 15-Aug-11 16:24:32

agree - you can never have too much suede

voiceofnoreason Mon 15-Aug-11 16:31:39

Thumb? What is huge? I take a 7 and agree that very round toes look like barges. But some are nice - they do need a heel tho!

Bullet - whats wrong with both ;-)

Thumbwitch Mon 15-Aug-11 16:38:50

7 1/2 - 8 depending on style. I can't wear high heels - no more than 3" or I fall over - and can't wear stilettoes at all, I need the heels to have some width, even if it's only 3/4". I have pathetic ankles sad

voiceofnoreason Mon 15-Aug-11 16:40:21

Thumb - i feel for you! I lurve my heels but they wreck my ankles! HAving said that some nice chunky heels in the shops at the moment - Dune have a load that are lovely

Thumbwitch Mon 15-Aug-11 16:57:48

A few years ago I bought a pair of Marco Tozzi boots that are like these but without the zip and embellishments - the heels are brilliant because they are wide enough not to wobble but look thin from the side. (Mine only cost £29, mind you wink). I lurve them but can't walk far in them blush

Points are back and kittens are in too. Or so says Grazia smile

I'm so happy about this - I love points. It's been really hard to find them in the last few years.

Topshop have some lovely pointed suede flats at the moment - I'm going to stock up!

LaBelleFrotheur Mon 15-Aug-11 21:24:06

voiceof, completely agree re kitten heels. They are an abomination. And I find it harder to walk in them than real hills. Bizarre that I even wanted them, let alone still love them.
