TWO CENTS: yay or neigh?

In the past few years, I have noticed an increasingly masochistic trend in the stylings of women's shoes in high fashion. As a gal who prefers flats and loafers to most any other type of accoutrement, I have to say that this disjunction between form and function quite bothers me.
Now, theatricality may well be a legitimate function for these shoes, and yes, the clic-clac trot of a woman clad in high heels has always been somewhat reminiscient of horseshoes on cobblestone, but really, one must draw the line somewhere.

I rest my case.
