Bold as Lightning: DSquared2 Flash Pumps
There's something so exciting about lightning — it's bright, fast and, yes, it's dangerous. Watching those bolts of electricity surging through the sky on a stormy night, you'll feel both intrigued and frightened, aroused and intimidated. That pretty much sums up how I feel when I look at the dainty, sky-high heel on DSquared2's Flash Boots, Open Toe Pumps and Pumps.
As you'll note on the picture above, the elegant, modern shoe collection consists of three styles that all share a sharp, pointy, lightning-shaped heel. There's no way to look at these shoes and not be filled with a sense of awe but, at the same time, the idea of walking in these can give the bravest heel aficionado a case of vertigo. Well, everyone but the style powerhouse Victoria Beckham — the ever chic Posh Spice, who manages to even run errands (with her boys in tow at that!) in 3-inch heels, has been spotted wearing the DSquared2 Flash Open Toe Pumps (most recently on March 12th at London's Claridges Hotel).
Hey, call me a daredevil or just a devotee to the Posh Spice life and style philosophy, but I'll risk tripping, slipping and even taking a forward dip onto the floor if it means slipping my feet into these masterpieces.
