yay-or-nay2.jpgIs it time to admit that the cage obsession has stretched on a little bit too long? I'm certainly not falling over myself to bag a pair of platforms like these oddities from Carvela (although if I were wearing them I probably would).

While I've been tiring of the look for a while now, it was only when I saw these shoes come up on my radar as a 'hot' new style that I really came to appreciate how bored I've become with the meshy designs that are far from practical to wear, even in the summer. But most of all I just think the combination here with a mega platform just doesn't work: the delicate strapping clashes horribly with the jumbo wedge, in my style book at least. What do you think?

'Garbo' in black or blue is available for £150 at Debenhams if you're not a hater.
