heelless-shoes.jpg I'm definitely seeing a trend starting to emerge here, and it's a rather worrying one: shoes without heels - or, at least, without heels in the places we'd normally expect to see them. Marc Jacobs' surreal shoes fall into the second category, and regardless of what you think of them, at least they have a heel of sorts. The ones in the picture above, though, spotted on the Antonio Berardi catwalk at Paris Fashion Week, have no such support. Instead, the wearer is expected to balance on the ball of the foot - and on top of a chunky platform! Well, I guess it'll do wonders for your balance, but maybe not quite as much for your posture or safety - what does everyone else think?
