The Pointed Toe Shoes Gone Wrong. Again.

Pantofii cu varf ascutit o iau pe o cale gresita. Din nou.

 

pointy toe shoes gone wrongZara (much too) Pointed Slippers and Shoes – 50€ and 60€ here and here;
Pantofi Zara cu varful (mult prea) ascutit – 279 si 329 ron aici si aici.

Tradare, tradare, tradare, de 3 ori tradare!

Dupa ce, prin expunere in ultimul an si ceva la noul (si de fapt clasicul) tip de varf ascutit, am ajuns nu numai sa trec peste trauma provocata de varfurile extra-alungite de la inceputul anilor 2000, ci chiar sa-mi placa foarte mult, se intampla ASTA. DIN NOU.

O lovitura marsava din partea celor de la Zara – chiar cei care m-au convins de fapt sa-mi cumpar prima pereche de pantofi cu varf ascutit din ultimii 10 ani! (Astia sunt).

Banuiesc (sper!) ca se adreseaza unui public care se incalta in botosei in vremurile de trista amintire de care ziceam, pentru ca nu cred ca cineva care a experimentat acele varfuri ascutite isi poate dori sa le poarte/ vada din nou. Ei probabil o sa le considere “OMG-ce-cool”, dar noi, ceilalti, nu ne lasam asa usor dusi cu presul: (pres > covor zburator > Aladdin > salvari si papuci ascutiti… intelegeti unde bat, sunt spirituala astazi): pantofii astia nu sunt cool, nu sunt trendy-flendy, sunt URATI CA NAIBA!

Sunt sigura ca exista destule modele de pantofi-copita/ cu par, cu barba, poate chiar cu burta care abia asteapta sa fie inventate, dar eu zic ca pantofii cu varf ascutit au trecut deja prin destule incercari si merita si ei macar 20 de ani de liniste si pace.

EN: Well, well, look what the cat dragged in on the Zara website!

Just as I had not only begun to accept the new (and in fact classic) pointed toe, but also to love it, having for the last year or so managed to get over the trauma inflicted on me by the exaggeratedly elongated shoes of the beginning of the 2000s – THIS is what happens. AGAIN.

A low blow, that’s what I call it – especially coming from the very brand that convinced me to buy my first pair of pointy shoes after God knows how many years! (These are the shoes in question).

I suspect they’re targeting people who were too young to wear proper shoes back in those dark (shoe) times, because I doubt somebody who has been consciously exposed to that kind of pointed toe is eager to see it, let alone wear it ever again. The young’uns (well, some of them) will no doubt consider them OMG-so-cool, but we, the older and wiser ones, aren’t so easily fooled (again): they’re not cool, people of Zara! They’re really, really, really UGLY!!!

I’m sure there are plenty of hoof shoes or shoes with hair, beards or even a beer belly that are just dying to be invented, but I think pointed toe shoes have had their share of cruel and unusual punishment and deserve at least 20 years of peace and quiet.
