reed-krakoff.jpgWe're seeing a lot of open-sided shoes on the designer shelves at the moment; a look that's typified by these high heeled pumps from Reed Krakoff. All these styles have an ankle-tie fastening (presumably they'd be impossible to wear without that extra support!) which feels like a bit of a follow-on from all the heavy cuffs we saw last season - but to me it also looks just a tiny bit hookerish...even Net-a-Porter's painstakingly composed model shot does nothing to remove those ankle-chain connotations from my mind!

So what do you think: are these styles just a little too red light district for your tastes too, or am I just being prudish (I admit that I also wouldn't relish the idea of attempting to walk in such minimal shoes!)

If you like them, however, they are £465 at Net-a-Porter
