mary-portas-clarks-shoes.jpgMary Portas' footwear collaboration with Clarks has proven so popular that a 1000-strong mailing list has had to be drawn up to cope with demand for her red and fuchsia 'La Magdalene' shoe (pictured).

Portas' shoes are designed with comfort and style in mind in equal measures, which makes them a big hit with those who love fashion but hate the sacrifices (and the bunions) that often come with it. Portas herself has described the thee-inch heels, which are deceptively easy to walk in as 'a footwear revolution'.

It's clearly a move that women are welcoming, as the thousand-strong queue to spend £79.99 on the shoes illustrates. What do you think of the style?
