Along with other bloggers, I’ve been observing the recent stampede of cut-out heels with interest.
I like that the heel reminds me of office furniture. All it needs is a wheel to make it really useful. It also reminds me of the Marc Jacobs backward heels, but it looks more stable, don’t you think?
And I’m really loving these United Nude booties.
If I hadn’t sworn off ordering shoes online, I’d definitely try the United Nude Fold Hi booties.
And now it’s time for BEDROOM ALERT! BEDROOM ALERT! is a category for fashion that is so hot you won’t make it out of the bedroom. You’ll simply have to call in sick for all those boredroom meetings you had on your calendar. Too bad!

UPDATED TO ADD: Another cut-out heel style here.
nothing beats the scary fish shaped shoes! they will always have a special place in my heart. i hope in yours too.
Oh please! Fish shoes rule the world! No one can deny that!
you should release a jewelry collection entirely inspired by scary fish shaped shoes. what a pr stint!

You know why these were invented don’t you? To give guys someplace to hang onto while they spread… well, you get the idea. heh

Noooo!!! these beauties are just too much for me. I know “the higher the heels the closer to God” but these are just dangerous stuff, I guess. Very animated too. Reminds me of Japanese cartoons, doncha think so?
Ooh, EA, you are a naughty girl! Miss J, if you can’t do high heels to get closer to God, you will have to do high hair instead!
I love the Dior shoes!! I don’t think I can walk in them, but they do look great!!!
Miss Janey says
They should put little doors over the cut-outs. This would cut down on the size of handbags that women carry, thus saving them back trouble. Also, this would be a great place to stash weed.
Miss Janey…considering my poison ring collection…why didn’t I think of that?! Genius!
I love the Giuseppe Zanotti ones, especially. The kick the ass of those Marc Jacobs backwards heels.
I love the michel kors ones and of course my favorite designer ever Christain Dior. Very cute style but I can imagine someone interperting this style very wrong.
You’ve got to love United Nude strictly for the name.
The Louboutin for Rodarte shoes are dangerous and I’d fall down if I dared try to wear them. All the better for the not-leaving-the-bedroom-plan.
Now, if we’re talking practical wearability, I like the green KORS Michael Kors shoe the best.
But for sheer preposterous beauty, I have to go with Dior’s violet version.

the only place i wouldn’t fall on my ass in the louboutin heels is the bed! i need a nap, i’ll see what my heels are up to.

I think shoes are the one item in a serious outfit that you can go crazy on…who’s really staring at your feet anyways (unless you’re wearing studded and spiked dreams). I like how the cut-out shoes make you look like you’re floating.
I love the booties, and the nine west and green cut out shoes are great.

Thank you for listing out all my cut-out shoe options…. my choices now lie in your hands!

Now I wonder if I should regret having gotten rid of my hot pink Hot Topic platforms with the star cut out I bought my freshman year of college…
i love this post! shoes shoes shoes. does it get any better than that?
I think the yellow Kors cutouts are my favorite. I love the silver booties. I mean I really LOVE them!!!
And yes, those office furniture booties totally reminded me of the Marc Jacobs backwards heels too.

Do the shoes with the cut-outs remind anyone else of those spring-y prosthetic legs that amputee athletes wear?
Bobble Bee says
i dont get the “boredroom” thing… 🙁 explain it to me
cut out heels seem cool to me and also more confortable 🙂
I love them all, but I’m not very sure about Giuseppe Zanotti’s =L
I really can’t use those shoes, too shiny for me and too high!!
I would look like a drag queen in those hahha
BB, I’m just bored with the boardroom right now!
Cut out heels are certainly really cool! I can’t wait to get my hands on a cheap mimic pair. But not exactly sure if they’ll be comfortable enough to walk in.
Love both Kors, and your Alaia’s definitely chic!
I never let the rules of “In & Out” dictate my style, as long as I ensure those sitting next to me don’t get scratched pupils for merely looking, I’m good.
Cutouts? none for me thanks..
Oh, lace.. how gorgeous is lace?

Oh c’mon, admit it; you’ve thought about it. I mean with those handy grips, you don’t have to hold your own legs up. heh.
Oh, EA, I’m too much of a lady to ever think such a thing! 😉
Effortlessly Average says
Well dang, apparently I’m even more obviously the slut here than normal. hahahahaha
Yes, you do strike me as very elegant.
fabulous girl says
If I wore cut out heels, something would inevitably get caught in them and I’d end up on the ground in my fitted suit for all of Lower Manhattan to see.
I think the Louis Vuitton SS07 show really got me started on the cut-out shoe thing:
As much as I hate getting caught up in the Marc Jacobs hype machine, I just can’t seem to help but pine after his goddamned accessories.
Although I think all these shoes are slightly ridiculous, I also slightly love them. .. especially the Dior ones, oh la la. ..
the childcatcher says
i adore the dior’s
god i would kill for a pair..
great blog 🙂

man i regret not getting the cut out wedge i saw a few months ago, it was very similar to the jil sander ones from a season or 2 ago…
oh and love those killer rodarte/louboutins, more so because they can actually kill someone.
