empire-state-building-shoes.jpgThere's a lot of 'architectural' footwear out there at the moment, but I've certainly never seen the term taken quite so literally as Geox have done in their new range of party shoes, each of which has a heel shaped like the Empire State Building.

We're used to 'statement' heels now, and quite comfortable with stems that point the wrong way, are shaped like cutlery or even doves. As these gimmicks go, I actually think the famous NYC landmark makes a damn good heel - so it's a shame they had to go and ruin the effect with those garish uppers.

£250, available exclusively from Geox's London stores: Covent Garden, Westfield, and King's Road
