Eeeww!! Can't stand them even a little.

Those are revolting! The comparison is spot on.

Robo said...

Yeah I saw those in the Nieman Marcus e-mail this morning and just burst out with "What the [F] is that??" Ew indeed.

I was thinking the same thing when I saw that in my mailbox today. Also reminded me of those big rubber soled construction boots little boys wear when they're four or five and need sturdy shoes with lots of traction while they run around and wreak havoc.

Mags said...

btw where has your blog been all my life? A few years ago I wanted a pair of shoes so badly I printed out a picture and framed it in my college dorm until I could afford the shoes!

OH, MY! I have those shoes. I guess it's individual taste. Tilda Swinton loves her pair of YSL sandals with the same platforms. I don't understand why people cannot be open and understanding of the small innovative changes designers pull. This isn't like the louboutin fish shoe or the ugly fit flops, or the other monstrosities out there. This, like the Marc Jacobs inverted heel and the Givenchy introduction of the open toe bootie, challenges people in fashion and opens new doors, which Stefano Pilati strives to accomplish. Not everyone supported Roger Vivier when he came out with the stiletto in the 1950s. I am sure he did get many skeptical views.

Don't fret! I'm sure I have lots of shoes other people don't like.

I'm all for innovation. We just like to poke some fun at the designers every once in a while... just to keep them humble! : )

BTW - I thought the Louboutin fish feet were fun!

I love them! But YSL never fits me -- ever -- so I won't be wearing them. Gosh, I really owe people a fish feet update.

Princess Poochie said...

Yes, Miss Wendy, you do! I've been wondering and wondering.

Wowow good catch. HYSTERICAL!

I dunno, I think those could be kind of fabulous. It's a fine line sometimes between fabulous and tacky.

Princess Poochie said...

j-t -

Too true. Sometimes I think I fall right over that line!
