It seems as though Jimmy Choo has started a trend. Not long ago, Lucite heels were relegated to the stages of gentlemen’s clubs, and the stages of gentlemen’s clubs only. Wearing a Lucite heel in public was essentially saying, “excuse me, I’m just getting off my shift at the Pussycat Lounge and I’ve forgotten to pack a change of footwear.”
Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but until Choo introduced the Niagra, we didn’t think we’d see the day that Lucite made the crossover into mainstream.
Well, it turns out that if Sasha Grey can do it, anyone can. Now we’re seeing Lucite heels everywhere, including this Chanel pump (that’s right, I used the singular).
So what do you think? Do you love the look, or wish it stayed in the seedy underground whence it came?
