Fashion tip : Heelless shoes

They are all the rage, but here is what you should know before rocking Lady Gaga’s shoes

The heelless shoes were first sighted on Lady Gaga’s feet. This foot wear that is quite tricky to walk with is very stylish and is quite eye catching. Heelless wedges come in many different colours and styles, the most popular being the heelless boot and wedge.

The heelless shoes may be branded as crazy, but they, on the other hand are a bold fashion statement. They are however, not for the faint hearted, mainly because their look spells discomfort and danger.
Extra care. One needs to be very careful when wearing these shoes because a slight tilt could result in to a very dangerous fall. It may also not be advisable to keep them on one’s feet for a very long time because this may cause the heel to be strained.

The heelless shoes are however a nice way to flaunt your nice pair of legs, especially since the shoe is meant to be eye catching.
Strictly casual. Unlike most heels, the heelless shoe is mostly reserved for the casual look, and it may look out of place, if worn for the formal look.

They come in wide range of colours so one has to carefully choose the shoe colour so as to coordinate it with their attire. The bright coloured and studded ones, though seem to stand out the most.
The heelless shoe is created to be eye catching and attention seeking so it looks better when worn with short attires like shorts, skirts and plum dresses  more than the floor length ones.
Heelless shoes can be bought from leading malls around town, with prices ranging from Shs100,000 and above, though prices vary depending on where you purchase them from.
