THE BIG PAY­DAY HITLIST

Would You Dare To Wear THIS Shoe?

Look (UK) - - FRONT PAGE - WORDS: MAX­INE EGGEN­BERGER @MAX­FASHED­I­TOR

The key to in­fil­trat­ing the world of It buys is to amass a cult fol­low­ing, which nowa­days is spear­headed by so­cial me­dia. But just how did iconic wares reach peak need sta­tus pre-in­sta­gram? Cour­tesy of celebri­ties, of course! Back in the early noughties, A-lis­ters dic­tated what was hot and, in­deed, what was not. And as long as we’re in­dulging in the tem­per­a­ture anal­ogy, Saint Lau­rent’s Trib­ute heels were once off-the-scale scor­chio. Adored by Solange (!), her sis Bey­oncé (!!) and Kourt­ney Kar­dashian (!!!), they were the height of sar­to­rial so­phis­ti­ca­tion.

Now, thanks to fash­ion’s ob­ses­sion with all things (for the lack of a bet­ter word) tacky, they’re back – re­stocked at the likes of Net-a-porter and Matches (read: classy places to shop). Of­fice too has paid homage with its aptly named Nos­tal­gia heels.

So are you pre­pared to add them to your footwear ranks? Sur­pris­ingly, in our In­sta-poll, 75 per cent of you said you’d wel­come them back. Just prom­ise not to wear them with hand­ker­chief hems and disc belts – this is about all the throw­back we can take for one week.
