    If Karl Lagerfeld chooses to style his Couture line with brothel creepers, it's a sign this shoe shape isn't going away. But some of the styles out there are a little, clunky to work on anyone but those with coltish limbs. That's why we like this pair from Tamaris, which are more like a brogue, but still with that chunky, slightly gothic vibe.
