Taking flight

When we noted winged shoes as a trendlet we never expected them to become mainstream or oversaturated (for obvious reasons - not everyone is game to look like they stole their shoes from Mercury himself). But their staying power thanks to those who are game has been longer than expected, and we still love seeing those quirky talaria on the streets. Tommy Ton not only snapped this Vivienne Westwood for melissa version, but did so with attention to the perfect moment: when the feet are leaving the ground, as if taking off in flight.
