Brian Atwood is a genius – and not just because he was smart enough to snatch up Nate Berkus. Um. Anyway. No, I mean he’s a genius because he is such a huge risk taker – and it really pays off. I think we haven’t even seen the best of what he can do, although every shoe he puts out seems even better than the last. I am especially fond of the Monroe Mesh-Elastic Patent Leather Beige Pumps I just spotted.
The heel is self covered and measures in at about 4 and ¼ inches, or 110 millimeters. That’s not too shabby at all.
I’m curious though. I’ve seen some critiques that say detailing just this – not just with Brian Atwood but among other designers as well – is just a gimmick to dress up an otherwise boring shoe. Do you think that’s true?
