If The Shoe Consultant was giving out awards, Miu Miu would win the prize for inspiring but wearable designer footwear. Season after season, Miu Miu never fails to charm and delight its customers.
The majority of the AW14 footwear collection is as sweet as always, but one print stands out as being more edgy than the norm.
These seemingly innocent pointed-toed mary-janes have a 1960s-style print, which at closer glance reveals a gun motif. The imagery reminds me of the James Bond Gun Barrel Sequence.
If you like your Miu Mius heeled, and your pistol-print blue-based, you might prefer the pointed stiletto version.
For sneaker lovers, the metal toe-cap look slip-on is the comfortable way to sport this look.
BUT…should gun imagery be played with in this way? Is this just a harmless, fun print, or is it highly controversial when many of us would prefer to discourage gun use?
