    Cool High Court Shoes

    What must be understood as "high court shoes"?

    Are we talking about woman shoes for lounge, to looking smart, with high heels and almond toe?

    Thank You

    Are we talking about womens shoes with high heels and almond toes, for evening wear?

    I think that that is a pretty good description.

    Thank You for your kind attention. In fact, I'd prefer to give you some context because there are a couple of more questions in this subject.

    Context will even open more words I don't know properly: Someone visits the workshop of a very important shoemaker, and this one says of him: "He was particularly excited over a very simple, high court shoe that I designed with a very elegant almond toe and a very flattering top line."

    Red words are the questions. First one is kindly answered by you, but the remaining couple also worries me.
    Almond toe for a pointed end shoe?
    Flattering top line for a very elegant line, design?

    Not related to all this, but let me ask you why have you written womens shoes instead of women shoes? Really a mystery for me.

    Thank You for all your attention, honestly.

    Almond toe, toe in the shape of an almond. Flattering top line, the shape of the upper part of the shoe designed to flatter the foot. I should have written womens' shoes, shoes for women.
