Italian term or phrase: forme frenate e murettate
Description of shoe shapes. I know there are actually two terms in this phrase, but I reckon in the end I'll be forced to paraphrase them into a single adjective/description. No context that would help, any idea or pointers would be marvellous. Thanks SUE

Explanation:
A few suggestions, little more than a logical guess although all of the above are commonly used to describe shoe shapes.

Just put braked and bricked-up, that'll teach them not to give you pictures. :)
