Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
Shoes are pretty out of control these days, and we’re not complaining. The higher the heel, the closer to God (or is that hair?). In any case, it seems that more and more designers are taking a cue from the strip clubs of the world, making shoes with impossibly high platforms and gaudy detailing.
