German term or phrase: gestürztes Quartier
From a catalogue describing a new range of shoes:
Thriller: Eleganter Herrenschnürschuh mit gestürztem Quartier – eine Hommage an den »King of Pop«.

Does anyone have any idea what this could mean - there is virtually NO context (as usual)! Any experts on Michael Jackson's attire out there?

It's not a reference to MJ's own patent (!) for shoes with "gravity-defying" heels, is it?
