Out with platforms, in with pointed-toe shoes


ROCK around the Christmas tree in these snakeskin print and faux
pony hair pointed-toe pumps.

The future points to a dangerously fabulous direction as the fashion forecasts of the season bring pointy shoes back on the spotlight.

That’s right, ladies, get ready to kick off those chunky platforms. These pointed-toe shoes look good on every woman it would be a crime to not sport one.

The classic pointed-shoe silhouette allows for maximum elongation of the legs, giving any outfit an instant model-ish boost. Best of all, it fits any mood, from rockstar to diva, sweetheart or seductress. And it gives you pizzazz—whether you’re in skinny jeans, cocktail dress or suit.

How to wear them? A pointy pair that’s flat in the sole, and sexy-thin yet easy on the height is the way to go. Classic black goes from day to night easily; you might never want to take them off ever.

Metallic is also beautifully bold. Try these babies with this season’s ’50s craze with a pencil cut or your favorite little black dress, and get ready to party.

When shopping for toe shoes, buy half a size bigger especially if you have wide feet. Make sure there’s room to wiggle your toes. If a bit loose, add a silicone pad for added comfort.

VELVET + Pointed-toe shoes = Holiday style

Opt for flats and kitten heel. Sky-high pointed pumps can be painful and might leave your feet bruised.

Choose soft leather or canvas material.

Payless shoes offer some stylish footwear made of good quality materials without being hard on your pocket.
