Kickstand

I'm a complete sucker for odd little details on shoes, which is why I fell in love with these Alexandre Herchcovitch boots. They're stuck somewhere in between chunky and spindly, with much more of an emphasis on the chunky. I think the little heel at the bottom looks sort of like a kickstand. It almost looks as if the heel is floating. I'd love to traipse around in a pair of these curious little things. Maybe Jane from Sea of Shoes can snag herself a pair so I can live vicariously through her.

Wow the heel details are amazing! I wonder how comfortable they would be to wear?

I am the clumsiest person alive, so no doubt I would end up breaking an ankle in those shoes!

I thought it was a pencil stick in the heel at first...it -the shoe- seems to defy gravity.
