PVC Shoes: Yay or Nay?

PVC shoes have been around for a while. The biggest designers in the business have PVC shoe’s in their collections. Why then is PVC so controversial? Well for some it isn’t. People seem to love the transparent shoe phenomenon.

There are others however who find them tacky and the antithesis of anything luxurious. Yet, luxury shoe designers seem to love PVC and keep churning out designs one after the other. People who aren’t quite sold on PVC shoes have other reasons too. For one, you can see your toes wrinkle and crinkle up inside the shoe. It’s not a good aesthetic and one that is even worse if you’ve hadn’t had a recent pedi!

Other than your feet scrunching up against the shoe, there is also the issue of no ventilation. This means some people’s shoes fog up when they sweat as PVC provides no passage of air. Keeping all of these issues in mind, people generally have mixed opinions about PVC shoes. We’re here to know your thoughts? Which side of the spectrum are you on?

Having said that, the luxury PVC shoes available on the market are just too stunning to miss. Because it’s transparent, PVC lends a very fairytale aesthetic when paired with crystals. Embellishment often seems to be “floating” or stamped on one’s foot as you can’t see the PVC from a distance.

We’ve got gorgeous pairs from Aquazzura, Alexandre Vauthier, Amina Muaddi and others that will blow your mind away. They’ll also pair so perfectly with your Eid dresses!
