Tribute or Desperate Attempt?

So here is one of 2007's "It" shoes - the YSL Tribute platform. Personally I thought is was only okay and while I like the white heel, I thought the platform was ridiculous. No matter how many stars wore it. I much preferred the non-platform slingback which is what I got.

So when I see this new version of this shoe I just think it is a sad desperate attempt to try and recapture that top spot status again this year.

I mean, I know they will be popular because they're flashy and all but they really are not attractive.

Would you wear these if the price were not a barrier (they're $690 at Saks)?

By the way, there is also a woven leather version for $760, if you are so inclined.

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who doesn't like these shoes. The platform makes them look like stripper heels. The slingbacks are gorgeous though!!
