shiny-flat-shoes.jpgAre you into the masculine-chic look yet? This is a trend that ahem really divides the women from the girls, as unlike many other styles, some will simply never cross that invisible gender-based line. I'm not sure what it is that puts some ladies off trying mannish shoes: is it a bit too much like cross dressing perhaps?

Personally, I find that masculine footwear is a fun look to experiment with, and when there are super shiny shoes like this new style from Giambattista Valli to choose from, you really don't have to let any of your girlish glamour go. The metal-capped heel makes a chic statement, and we love the scarlet interior. Let's keep an eye out for similar styles on the high street!
