Fancy a laugh at the world of men’s fashion? Then look no further as comedian David Mitchell of comedy duo Mitchell & Webb provides his point of view on men’s pointed shoes in his Guardian Soapbox column.
“A pointy shoe always looks like it is in search of an estate agent, and not to kick, which would obviously be fine but to be worn by. Pointy shoes always give the wearer a slight suggestion of a smart regional nightclub where the clientele don’t wear jeans but do carry knives”.
The video is well worth a watch and debunks in a tongue and cheek manner the absurdity of shoemakers in their quest to have us all wear pointy shoes!
