What in the World?

I was clicking through my favorite store site, Bergdorfs, and came upon this Akris outfit. But it wasn't the unusal jacket/skirt/pants combo that stopped me.  It was the crazy shoes.

Don't these look terribly akward and uncomfortable with their forced downward slope?

I just can't fathom them.  Why?????

yikes, usually i like stupid shoes, but there's no way I would fall on my face every five steps

Oh that's just ridiculous! You know that feeling you get when you're almost asleep and feel like you're falling? I think those shoes would feel like that with every step.

Oh my, I was looking at that coat also but did not see the silly shoes. They remind me of medieval footwear, but I don't think anyone would have worn them then either.

I wonder if they are some weird "tribute" to/copy of the McQueen Armadillos?
