Forever 21 Double Platform Glitter Stilettos

These are Forever 21’s new Double Platform Glitter Stilettos, and don’t they look very… architectural? I don’t mean that in a bad way (I’m an architecture student, so quite the opposite!) They’re definitely interesting, what with the double bow, double platform, and slight Kirkwood thing going on with the heel! Having stared at this shoe for the last few days, I’ve decided that I quite like the design, but I’d think twice about buying it if it’s Forever21 doing the manufacturing! Let’s be honest here, F21 is known for being a cheap, commercial brand, and some of their shoes are pretty hit or miss in terms of quality and workmanship. I’d feel safer buying a shoe like this from a higher-end brand, just for the extra peace of mind that the platform won’t fall apart on me! Still, props to Forever 21 for being less ‘commercial’ with this shoe and going instead for a more edgy, unique look that might not necessarily have mass appeal. They’re very ambitious, and I like them!

Here’s a closeup of the platform:

I just looked at the platform and thought, Oreo’s! but that might just be me. Seriously though, doesn’t that sandwich effect remind you of Oreo’s? No? Okay, moving on… Where did I leave those Oreo’s?

These are $32.80 and you can purchase them here.

Forever 21 Sateen Stiletto Heels

 

Well now, aren’t these shoes quite nice? Forever 21 call this a “nude” shoe, though it looks like more of a light nude pink to me. But I love pink, so if F21 think pink is the new nude then hurray! I think the curved upper adds a nice touch to what’s really just a typical platform court, and the sateen finish has a nice slight sheen that manages to not look cheap, though you might want to check these out in a F21 store if you’re worried about that just in case these photograph better than they are! These also have a showstopping 5.8″ heel height, and while the 1″ platform will help, it’ll still be like walking in a platformless 5″ heel. Definitely a house door-to-car kind of shoe!

These are $24.80 and you can purchase them from the Forever 21 online store here. Also available in black.

Forever 21 Fuzzy Stiletto Heels

 

 

These are Forever 21’s new Fuzzy Stiletto Heels, and there’s really only one place I can imagine you’d wear fluffy 6-inch, fire engine red stilettos to – let’s just say that with 30 dollar bills, you’d have enough money for these shoes. Alternatively you could wear these for a private night in, because I really hope F21 wasn’t expecting their buyers to actually wear these things out! I can see how these would be fun for a bachelorette party, though you might not get many uses out of them – you can clearly see where the fuzz was attached onto the strap from the back view!
