surreal-shoes.jpgThe surreal, reverse-heel shoes Marc Jacobs showed at New York Fashion Week last month have certainly got everyone talking (which is probably what Mr. Jacobs intended). Unfortunately, most people have been talking about how dangerous they are, with criticism centering around the lack of support for the heel, meaning that the centre of balance is somewhere under the arch of the foot.

"They are absurd, torturous, dangerous and wearable only by women who never have to walk further than the nearest red carpet and have more money than sense," says Erin Kelly of the Daily Mail, who adds that she expects to see Victoria Beckham in a pair any day now. They're also not cheap, with prices starting at £270. My question then, is: would you wear these shoes?
