One of this season's trends is one that has launched multiple times. Most recent in 2010 as the clear shoe. In 2010, Prada launched a collection of the Perspex heels. a transparent thermoplastic acrylic resin also known as Lucite. In the past I owned a pair of shoes with the clear top but never with a clear heel. This year I embarked on a shoe that incorporates a double trend; a clear heel and the gladiator look.
The title of this article came from the term "Ice Heels." It is this years name for clear heels which resemble an ice cube, hence the reason I called the article, Ice Ice Baby.
Ice Heels also come in sneakers along with clear tops. Happy socks; which is what I call the stripe socks, look very cool with the clear top sneakers. The sneakers with the Ice Heel are just plain fun.
This designer took it to another level by incorporating fishes in the clear heel to make it look like a fish tank. What do you think? Would you wear these? I would wear them perhaps to a 70s party as part of my costume and to create a conversation piece.
Finally, these are my Ice Heels and Gladiator Sandals by Jeffrey Campbell. I was saving them for a fashion event and today I got invited to a "White Party." Can't wait to rock these sexy sandals!
