The clear silhouette on shoes has been having its day for a minute on the fashion scene. The trend started with the acrylic heel, migrated to PVC strap heels and clear flats, then later saw the clear ankle bootie become popular.
The ankle booties received so much love that every fashionista and shoeaholic was spotting one! This year, the newest trend on the clear shoe wave is the stiletto pumps, which we must say is kinda impressive.
Because of its transparent nature, the shoe is hella versatile and fits in perfectly with every outfit; and allows you to slay it any which way. Although we’re feeling it, we do have a concern or two.
Firstly, you would have to ensure that your pedicure is on serious steroids whenever you wear these babies. It would, otherwise, be an uncomfortable experience walking around with undone toes in these shoes.
Also, Mzansi summers are known for their blazing nature! How comfy will these shoes be in blistering heat that will soon cause incessant sweating? Perspiring feet in potentially slippery shoes is not safe and definitely doesn’t make for a good look.
None the less, we love this shoe for its sexiness and elegant appeal. What do you think? Would you rock these clear stiletto pumps or nah?
Do let us know.
