According to The Guardian
"We all remember where we were when Gwyneth Paltrow debuted her new look. It was a great day for legs. It was a great day. Thanks to her sub-ankle apparel (a Givenchy cacophony of straps and inches), it heralded the death of the It Bag and the dawning of the age of the It Shoe. You, shoe, can rise to It Shoe status by spending a second on your name. Literally a second. Some inspiration from Manolo Blahnik's autumn/winter collection: Compulsa, Pimpi, Spart. You'll see how important it is to combine the image of your wealthy customer with the aura of processed cheese. When you're satisfied with your name, work on your appearance (little tip from Prada: a mustard-velvet upper really brings out the hoof in a heel made of hooves). Your aim, as an It Shoe, is to look like you were made by a drunk potter. Think back-to-front heel, open-toed winter boot, sandal with Lurex leg-warmer attached. Take the word 'bunion', shoe, and make it flesh."
