Rochas After we waited almost 15 minutes for the web pages to load thanks to our 56k modem (lack of broadband is a long story, but we like to think of our computer as 'vintage' - it goes with our 80s stilettos) we hoped to God that Rochas' new shoes were worth the wait.

Alas, for every pair of sexy metallic spike heels, there were a pair of these. Test your patience at Rochas.com now.
