If the Shoe Fits...Severe Style for Gothic Divas

"I will heel you, I will save your sole, I will even dye for you..." proclaimed the poetic words off a shoe repair sign in Manhattan. They set a romantic tone for this roundup of eccentric, stylish, painful and artistic footwear I came across in this roundup:
Spotted at the Valentino Spring 2010 show were Philip Treacy's spectacular embroidered tulle shoes. The designer is known more for his dramatic hat creations, but that may soon change. These lovelies look like dark phantoms are wrapped around your angles and ready to take flight.

How about this dominating over-the-knee boot by Christian Louboutin? Jennifer Lopez swears her allegiance to the designer in her new single Louboutins and it's not difficult to see why. The flattering silhouette and knock 'em dead color would make any diva look fierce.Spikes are everywhere of late. On the dresses and shoulders of every rockstar on television, jewelry, handbags and of course, some fierce heels... Louise Goldin's collection for (affordable!) Topshop has several styles of these pointy pieces

So will footwear become more sedate later this year? I wouldn't count on it. In Women's Wear Daily's preview of shoe designer's sketch for Fall 2010, silhouettes and details certainly did NOT tone down for the masses. Donald J Pliner , Be & D and Giuseppe Zanotti designs are seen above.
