    How often would you wear such shoes? I have pairs of heels smaller than those that I barely wear, if at all. They're not really my style, and sorry to be snobby, but for £100 (a little excessive, no?) I'd rather have a brand I'd heard of.

    Also, that style was very in a few years ago so they'll probably be places to get similar shoes cheaper

    But I love and adore them... reduced to £70 (not that that helps much). You're right though, I wouldn't wear them often... though once I turn 18 and start going clubbing in the city, they'd come into their own.

    Juno: I think the style is coming back. I've seen shoes in this style floating round on catwalk pictures this season.

    If they're still there tomorrow, I'll buy them. I have a passion for big, theatrical clothes and these are certainly that.

    My point wasn't supposed to be that they were "so last season" or whatever, it was that because they're not really now you should be able to find them cheaper.

    I've had a look round the internet, but typing in 'wedges' or 'tiered wedges' comes up with traditional, last year's wedges or... golf clubs.

    This style of heel is unique to Terry de Havilland, I think. That's part of the reason I'm so keen on them. I could never afford anything from his main 05/06 collection so the diffusion range is the next best thing.

    Oh well... have found more on vivaladiva.com but they're 80/90 pounds.

    No, some people hate D-Havz, its a perfectly natural reaction.

    I don't like them and wouldn't wear them personally. However, most people hate stuff I have so if you really love them then go for it. Otherwise they will go out of stock and you will obsess over them for years and years and wish you'd bought them. My motto: you can always sell it on ebay!

    I've got a grey courduroy mini (but not too mini) that I can wear them with, and a dress that is mid-thigh, in silvery-grey. Oh, and a funky pencil skirt. All with opaque black tights, or patterened tights perhaps.

    I'm thinking of asking for these for Christmas. Just asked my mum what she thought, and she made noises about me being too tall and the conversation ended with me shouting, "Oh go away, like you know anything about shoes anyway... stupid woman!"

    Are these shoes bad? Tacky (I'm slightly worried)? Would you wear them?

    it depends who wears it and how you wear it.
    i don't think they are right for this season, and they are way too high!!!
    And i personally find them tacky sorry! The colour is another reason, thats what put me off them

    Well, I'm tall, have a big semi-afro and am rather loud. I'm known for being experimental with fashion and getting away with it.

    I know they aren't one of the 'key looks' of the season, but Terry De Havilland has been coming back since 2004 and has been featured in European versions of Vogue this season.

    I figured some people would find them tacky, but enough people like them for me not to really worry.

    I know this means nothing to most people, but people like Angie Bowie, Britt Ekland and Bianca Jagger have worn his shoes. The diffusion range is the answer to my prayers.

    Yes, they're slightly flashy and tacky, but that's the point. They're statement, shameless 'look at me' shoes which speak of an attitude and style to match.

    I'm defending them so vehemently now because I've bought them, and there's no turning back. :rolleyes:
