Fashion Trend or Alien Invasion: The Heel-Less Shoe

We've seen all kinds of non-conformist fashion trends in Hollywood over the years, but this one has been compared to an “alien invasion”. We are talking about the heel-less shoes and to be honest, I don’t see the “wow factor”. I don’t see how women can even be able to walk in these shoes, but it seems like a hit among well known celebrities. Are they comfortable? We’d all like to know that…

Though she takes an occasional tumble, Lady Gaga loves difficult footwear, like the heel-less boots she’s been wearing frequently. She pulled them on again for the September’09 issue of Vanity Fair, where Nick Knight snapped her leaping midair in a pair of heel-less platforms by the young Japanese designer Noritaka Tatehana. But the Lady is only the most recent fan of the gravity-defying style, and Tatehana only the latest to take up the heel-free challenge.
Victoria Beckham started the trend in September 2008 at the launch of her fragrance in NYC, where she wore Antonio Berardi’s thigh-high PVC heel-less boots; Right after, the boots hit the runway in Berardi’s Fall 2008 show.
Other celebrities spotted wearing these unusual shoes are Snooki, Lucy Hale and Daphne Guinness.
Remember to dress for success!
