Gwyneth Paltrow Is Well-Heeled

May 9th, 2008 // 6 Comments

The Iron Man actress has been spotted traipsing around Europe in super high heels and the influence of these photos has been made most apparent by the rise in sales of that style of show. Various British retailers have reported an increase of consumer purchases in high-heeled shoes for women. In fact, the difference has been so noticeable that the result is being loosely called the “Gwyneth Effect” and has earned the Hollywood actress a commercial endorsement for Italian shoe designer Tods.

I love her dress and the shoes are quite striking, but seriously, is it worth risking breaking a bone to be walking around on cobblestone in those crazy foot daggers? If this keeps up, we can look forward to more pictures like this. It’s all fun and games until someone loses and eye.


More photos of Gwyneth Paltrow and her heels are after the jump.

  1. you know she looks good. The heels are pretty. I did wear heels like that when I lived in Europe but not for very long.

    I had some heels like that when I was on vacation in Florence. Went out to a really nice place for dinner with my dress and sexy heels…and nearly fell flat on my face when we hit the cobblestone streets. Needless to say I turned around and put on some flats. Ridiculous!
