:::::EDIT: before doing my homework I posted how I thought the fw09 runway Acne platforms were way better than their retail counterpart (Atacoma)... only to learn from astute commenter L that the Atacomas preceded the fall09 version! the Atacomas are actually pre-fall '09. :::::::::::::::::::
THAT SAID, I remain unconvinced by the Atacomas. I'm not saying I hate them, but they're missing something. It might be a problem with the silhouette? Unsure.
I do, however, love the fall'09 version... it takes the Atacoma model and goes the whole hog. The chunky silhouette totally works here.
they look kinda clumsy, no?
to not speak of the knockoffs...

Before editing I mentioned a tragic disease that seems to plague many labels (except Acne...for now): the BRAS (Bad Retail Adaptation Syndrome).
Dior has a chronic bad case of the BRAS... the retail versions are always huge letdowns. On the last shoe they even went so far as to eliminate the curved heel!!!
