We’d seen Lady Gaga (walking the Marc Jacobs fall/winter show) tumbling on shoes even more bizarre and towering than this. But for Marc Jacobs to make this kind of shoe statement was rather surprising. Patent leather, platform soled and preferably worn over the knee. The kind of shoes only David Bowie would know how to pull off. Yet as crazy as they may look, other designers like Margiela, Balenciaga and Westwood walked the same shoe path leading up to one of this season’s shoe trends; the patent leather ankle boot with a chunky heel. It might be a far cry from Marc Jacobs’ catwalk shown shoe porn, but at least you know where it all started. Release your inner Spice girl. These patent leather, platform boots were made for walking.
