The [blank] beneath my wings

Evidently, it’s a platform:

Prada wingtips from 2011 Spring-Summer

I haven’t quite decided what I think about this item from Prada’s 2011 Spring/Summer collection. From here up, this is a traditional wingtip, with all the traditional detailing in all the traditional places; from there down, it’s, um, less so. And as ShoeBlog says, “If Prada’s shoes don’t jump start the dreary weather, at least the colors will.” Whatever you may think of that orange stripe, it’s certainly not drab.

Maybe. After the jump, what they saw on the runway above those shoes:

Now I’m confused.

(HuffPo has a slideshow of the collection.)

    Well, I suppose a version of those shoes might come in handy during our 4″-in-two-hours rainstorms.

    Or are they the kind of shoes you’re not supposed to wear outdoors, because they might get wet or scratched?

    Well, it looks fairly sturdy, but that doesn’t mean much.
