You might have seen this particular High plateau shoe with no heel. You know, a goat feet look-a-like shoe, but than in a high form. That last one was not to ridicule the appearance of the shoe, but simply to describe it. Some call it the Night Walker and it made its first appearance about 2 years ago on the Runway. At that time, no normal person could get it through their thick skull to put their feet into that shoe, but 2 years later women actually do. The shoe which was then only available for the price of 1,900Eur and up and it is now available from the price of approximately 50EUR.
The Night walker is initially known from fashion brand Antonio Berardi, Nina Ricci and Giuseppe Zanotti. I am not exactly aware of which of the designers was the first. So to all fashion forward people, don’t jump on ABINA if the sequence wasn’t right. Alexander McQueen had a shoe-line that somewhat resembled the shoe, but his had a heel.
So the question goes: would this be embraced in Africa? I can imagine family relatives calling it a demonized shoe. And somewhere, I can imagine why they would, because the shoe looks like satan’s shoes though. It’s now fashionably accepted. Lol.
Well however you want to put it. The shoe has been embraced into the mainstream fashion lovers. We realize not all are converted into wearing them, but they’re worn with swag!
The plateau shoe is available at the following shops.
