From booties to pumps, the cutout has taken high fashion shoe-dom to a new level of less is more. Manolo Blahnik, Miu Miu, Versace and Dior all have designs on fashion's newest staple. Sleek and sensuous with a touch of red-light district edginess, the "cutout" transcends the norm; either worn with colored tights in risk taking contrast, nude hose, no hose, or same color hose for the illusion of a long and leggy line, (unless you actually have long legs, making the illusion a reality).
Here are just a few of my favorites. Though the general concept may be similar in style, each designer has brought his or her own vision to the creative process.
