British designer/ genius designed these Geisha platform shoes. These are cool only for photo shoots, anywhere else you would look silly. I had a pair of real Geisha platforms made for me in Kyoto, Japan during our honeymoon. They are super cool, but only for decoration purposes because they are so fragile.
So, Chinese foot binding comes to mind when I see Geisha shoes… click here for some honest to gross photos of some lady whose foot has been bound since birth. She’s old now, but her feet are the size of a cigarette pack or an Ipod. She walks with a cane (I wonder why!) and her feet are shaped in the same form of her shoes that are pointy and have a wedge heel. It looks like she needs to dip her feet in Calgon and get a foot massage- STAT!
