Try as I might, I don't think I will ever understand the constant... well, insistence, of shoe designers to bring out heels in the form of trainers (or should that be trainers in the form of heels?) It doesn't matter if they're platforms, wedges or stilettos - they didn't look good on the Spice Girls and I'm pretty certain they will never look good on the rest of us either!

At least these ones are slightly more intriguing than the Spice Girl specialties, thanks to their pleated grey silk satin and bold lemon velvet laces. The model makes them look half-reasonable too, but sorry, am still not convinced. Are you? They're £90 from Coggles if you just so happen to be...
