Lately, I can’t get enough of chunky heels. If it’s not the Miu Miu babies in the current ad campaign, it’s super-chunky 1990s stack heeled boots, as modelled by a colleague of mine, who rooted them out in her mother’s wardrobe, had them overhauled by a cobbler, and is now sporting them, much to my chagrin.

They say the stiletto is making a comeback, you know, and Jimmy Choo’s 24/7 line (more on which at a later date) does nothing to dispel these rumours, but as far as I’m concerned, the chunkier the better - Kron shoes, which I featured a few days ago, are a case in point. You can count Irregular Choice as another good bet on the chunky heel stakes, and these babies, featured in the Topshop Unique S/S 2010 catwalk show, and online soon.
