Nancy Durrant, the arts commissioning editor at The Times  www.newsworks.org.uk, Vivienne Westwood soles have endured a series of parties, events and office hours since she purchased them on sale at the Mayfair shop about a decade ago.
These are the only pair of Westwood's she owns and adores how they make her legs look amazing despite her toes feeling pinched saying that the pain is worth it!
The black silk brocade has faded and the wooden heels are about to retire but they are her favorite style from the classic earlier Westwood collections.
"There's something about the subtle subversiveness of these shoes that makes me feel secretly powerful. Anyone who thinks that women are hamstrung by high heels or that they're anti-feminist, is underestimating the complexity of that relationship."
