Those really cheap thin-heeled stilettos that are broken and worn down to the plastic or metal spike within the heel. I can’t stand listening to the plastic clicky-clack of broken heels. It’s not bad enough that the shoes are crap in the first place, but the fact that the owner lets the heels get really knackered. I most hate it when the heel actually splits, because the wearer has worn them right down as far as they can go. Urgh.
This picture makes me feel ill. I can imagine the nasty scraping sound on the floor, and I can imagine the person wearing them… they’re the kind of Brit that is ever unfashionable, a bit like Bridget Jones. She’d wear shoes like this and not care. Cheap doesn’t mean you have to be badly dressed: Primark is a case in point. On my friend Yasmin, she can make Primark look more Primarni. But these women can take a thousand pound suit and make it look like it came from a charity shop reject pile. Dowdy. They always seem to have uncontrollable hair, uncomfortable, unflattering trousers and a preference for bizarre chintz prints.
