Nicholas Kirkwood, who is responsible for
stand-out can't-look-away heels for women, unveiled his first men's collection, Nicholas Kirkwood Men's, in London today, and pictures of them promptly flooded Twitter. Based on the images, we'd like to submit that though he recently explained the footwear is "for the guy whose girlfriend is wearing my heels," any of the six silhouettes work for the girl who's wearing his heels, but also likes the men's thick sole and doesn't mind a lack of glitter, too. So, please, Nick, make them in women's sizes too, will you?
The six styles range in price from $520 to $950, and include oxfords, desert boots, smoking slippers, and a dress shoe/sneaker hybrid. They'll be headed to Nicholas Kirkwood stores in July.
