Out Of The Vault: Bakers Fanta in Red
Hello everybody! I'm back with a shoe from my library which I purchased over a month ago, but I bought these when they were already on clearance so I cannot find them on the website anymore. With any luck, you'll probably find them on the clearance rack of your local Bakers store. This is why I'm listing it as a "vault" item since it is not readily available. These were also being sold in black, brown, and blue.
Defined As: Platform Pointy Toe Pump w/Exposed Heel and Studding Detail
I usually tend to steer away from pointy toed shoes since they are really not my style, however, the pointy toe on these particular heels is not ridiculously long. I also wanted to branch out from my typical rounded, almond, and peep toe styles. I don't own anything similar to this, especially the detail on the heel with the exposed metal, it's a completely unique addition to my collection.
As for comfort, well, they're not comfortable. :) Yeah, the platform, and I use the term loosely, is so tiny, it must be less than 1/2 inch, yet the heel is still a standard 5 incher. This of course, causes more strain on the ankle, something I noticed when I was trying them on in the store, however, I really wanted it so I decided to overlook that fact. Definitely wear them to events that require minimal standing and walking. I do wonder if the angle feels more extreme for smaller sized feet....????
Good luck finding these if you're interested,
