Trend alert: get on point!

If you've been hanging on for dear life to those kickin' Louboutins for the past few years, just knowing—knowing in your heart—that pointed-toe shoes would make a comeback, it's time to pull those lovelies out of the closet and give them a good polish.

Earlier this year, Internet shoe guru Manolo predicted that 2008 would be the year of the comeback for this classic, leg-lengthening style, and he's not alone. According to a recent article in The Guardian:

At Balenciaga—pretty much the bellwether for trends that the high street masses will be adopting—the gladiator sandals it knocked out last season have been replaced for autumn/winter by shoes so pointy they will probably double as weapons for the requisite eastern European villainess in the next Bond film.
A pointed statement if ever we heard one.
