Shoe designers have been experimenting with the heel-less platform for a couple seasons. The gravity-defying style has been popularized by the likes of Victoria Beckham and Daphne Guinness. Walking in them may seem impossible, or at the very least, dangerous. But there are magical forces at work: physics. The shoes are weighted in the front to prevent you from tipping backwards. This season, shoe god Giuseppe Zanotti adds his offering to the trend, with a glossy pair of patent sandals. Tip safely!
