How does Posh balance on matchsticks?
LONDON: You have to hand it to Posh. She practises what she preaches: extremely high fashion. Even while being stalked around New York by paparazzi this week, she wore the sort of heels that defy the laws of physics.
My first impression of Victoria’s “Blade Cappa” black suede heels, made by her favourite brand, Casadei, is they are something of an architectural wonder.
As I lift them I can’t help staring at the exceptionally narrow steel heel that looks, the company says, like “a sharp razor blade”.
They’re not wrong. The perfect murder weapon for a film noir.
It’s terribly elegant. It is also oddly comfortable – until I try to do anything.
Like put my foot to the floor, or walk. I find myself almost stumbling. It’s not that they hurt exactly, more that they feel about as secure as resting on a matchstick.
I wear them for half an hour, making my way from the office to the pavement, where I parade slowly up and down before hailing a taxi – about as much walking as Posh would manage.– Daily Mail
