I know, I know, how typical – a fashion bloggerwittering on about the fashion blogger’s shoe, Jeffrey Campbell‘s Lita. But, honestly, it’s been a slow burn. I loved and hated it in equal measure while deciding it would never work on my curvy calves. And then I saw Angelika rocking the Lita like nobody’s business on the Sartorialist, and I thought . . . maybe.

Then today came the news that Irish company Formosa Fashion is stocking Litas online and, well, my credit card groaned slightly. You can also buy ‘em in the flesh in Buffalo, and Harvey Nichols sells a selection of Jeffrey Campbell styles – although they didn’t have Litas last time I checked.

So what say ye? Are you for or against? Weigh in on possibly the most important debate in fashion blogging. To Lita or not to Lita?
