Architectural, witty, interesting heels are a trend right now — but are they appropriate for all offices? Let’s discuss.

As a reminder, these are some of the wackier heels we’ve featured lately. The metal stiletto of the All Saints heel caused a bit of controversy in the comments — there were many who really, really did not like the look.

The same can be said for the Chloe shoes, and the booties — people liked them but for the heels.

That said, these are some of the more sedate but interesting heels for work I’m seeing — some of the wilder ones include these:

What are your thoughts, readers? If SOME are appropriate, but not all, where do you think the boundary lines are (beyond “being able to walk in it”)?

For my $.02: I would argue that the ones at top are at least grounded more in office attire (“work heel with a twist!” kind of things), whereas the bottom shoes are a bit farther flung.

(The Loewe collection is a lot of fun to look at, fwiw – in addition to roses like above, they’re using nail polish bottles, lipstick, and a bar of soap for the heel shape.)
