How does Posh bal­ance on match­sticks?

CATHER­INE OSTLER

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
