This is in my Designer Heels series. You can read the introduction here.
This is the final design in my Designer Shoe series, and I left my least favorite for last. The color is obnoxious; the straps are thin and weird; the suede is a bad fabric choice; the heel looks like a pair of leeches attached to the ends of the foot; the whole shoe is just ugly.
I tried to come up with a way to redeem this shoe. Perhaps changing the color to red would help.
Wow. Changing the color did a LOT for this shoe. The only thing that still bothers me is the heel; it should be less organic and leech-y.
But excluding the heel, the red version of this shoe is actually a decent design. It goes to show that if you make great design choices and then mess up one tiny element (color, for instance) the whole design falls apart.
