Not entirely flat

And not exactly symmetrical, either:

Milano by Diane von Furstenburg

I suppose the first question with any shoe by Diane von Furstenberg — this one, despite its Brazilian origins, is called “Milano” — is “Can you wear this with a wrap dress?” (A definite maybe, say I.) At an inch and a half, it’s not exactly calculated to bestow height upon you, but it’s probably easier on your sense of equilibrium. Still, a black suede wedgy flat (or flattish wedge) with seemingly-random cutouts is really neither bedroom nor boardroom, so you really ought to have some destinations in mind before dispatching $168 to Bluefly.

    Destinations? How about sitting on a veranda somewhere sipping an iced tea (or something stronger)? Or going out shopping with a group of friends?

    They seem like a weekend kind of shoe to me, at least for the sort of woman who doesn’t slack off and dress down on the weekends.

    I like them. They are stylish without killing your feet and don’t put a girl at risk for broken ankle.
