I like both..I don't own many strappy sandals and only 1 pair of pointy shoes.....I absolutely hate when the point is too long though.
I think both the shoes in that pic are horrible, those girls need to put on some clothes lol!
Pointy shoes look ridiculous to me when they are pointy enough that a person can see them extending an inch or more past the end of the foot. It looks clownish to me.
And both of these "outfits" are questionable, but with any sort of swimwear pointy shoes smack of desperation. Sandals go with swimwear (even though high-heeled sandals may not always be the best choice).
