WTF Shoes

I was searching for a pair of dark brown sandals on-line this weekend, and I found these beastly shoes.

There is NO WAY to make these shoes work.  NO WAY.  EVER.  And if you like these shoes, we can't be friends.

P.S. If you follow me on twitter, you may have already seen me link to these stupid shoes. Sorry for the repeat...I am low on blog ideas lately. Grumble grumble.

What? More than 22 people bought these shoes? At $80 a pair? What is this world coming to...

Georgina Dollface said...

That's what gladiators wore when they were at track and field events. - G

Nike must cater to the Roman athletes of today, you know. o_O

Shorty said...

Yuck, yuck and more yuck. I'm with you!

5thsister said...

Well? Maybe if they came in red. On 2nd thought, no, it's not gonna happen. Whew! I guess we can still be friends.

Bitsy said...

Heather said...

EPIC FAIL nike. Seriously, they must have been running out of things for their slave laborers to make, or they were trying to use left over supplies?? Just ugly.

Rita/Fighting Off Frumpy said...

I would only buy those if they came in zebra-print.

Just joshin' ya, those things are hideous. :)

Caroline said...

holy hell...those are ugly! I wonder which celeb will be spotted wearing them first??? Blech..

Melanie's Randomness said...

The sad part is someone is going to buy them just because of that Nike symbol. oh boy...

bananas. said...

What the fuckitty fuck?! Those are fucking hideous!!! Someone needs to shake nike repeatedly and then bitch slap them for even thinking i would EVER buy those.

Addict said...

Nike has gone crazy! I guess we can still be friends because I HATE those shoes. LOL.

i'm all for creative design when it comes to fashion, but those shoes just gave me heartburn.

adrienzgirl said...

They are awful. Who the fuck would wear them? Really. Who? I need to know.

Farah said...

Oh damn! those are fugly shoes! Nike should just stick to making sport shoes.

blueviolet said...

Those are the kinds of shoes I love to try on in stores just to dance around and be ridiculous.

TERI REES WANG said...

Oh, those were made for the Troy's of the world to jump the shark... or the Jack's to jump over the candle stick, or red hot poker, or volcano.

We can make a pact right here, right now, to arm ourselves each with tazers, just for the ready of taking down a "Don't" street walker.

Are they serious? They can't be serious? Really?

Phoenix said...

Those are totally hideous! Yikes!

Alisa said...

UGLY!

Prairie Chicken... said...

umm gross

God's Favorite Shoes! said...

Are these a joke? they have to be a joke. Nike certainly has someone in the PR department that vetoed these ugly ass shoes!

Somebody needs to be fired and I need their job!

pearls said...

worst shoes ever....

SabinePsynopsis said...

Nike + Gladiators = a design gone terribly wrong.

Ellie Grace said...

Thiiiiiiis is hysterical. Have I mentioned how much I love your sense of humor? Seriously, you crack me up. hahahaha

Alison @ The Knotty Bride said...

Eewwwwww. Nice find.

Kitten said...

The fact that there's a Nike swoosh on the side is really disturbing.

I'd go so far and say that these are the AMC Pacers of footwear.

Trixie said...

Sometimes I think clothing and shoe designers get together and make bets about what they can get people to wear

Kitty Stampede said...

UGH!!! hideous beyond belief! definitely a big fat honking WTF.

Iva said...

reason #53894759037258723908578024 Adidas is better. I will be showing these to my husband later.

THANK YOU. I win. again.


hahahahahahhahahahahahahahahhahaha.


random, but in addition to the all around ridiculousness, I dont get the need for the elastic bit up front? Its like there weren't sure what type of shoe they were attempting to design? Its totally out of place as a material..no? yes?
oh GOD IS THIS DAY OVER YET?!<---- I'm yelling that last bit for real. not saying. YELLING.

Iva said...

what an ugly looking comment. I am so sorry.

Kara said...

FOUL! My dad used to wear this supremely dorky Nike wet shoe thing that we made SO much fun of him for. He refused to get rid of them because they were so comfortable.

Heather Taylor said...

Ick. Who would wear these?

Tiffany said...

it makes me wonder what the buyer of Zappos even thinks when coming across these shoes and saying "yes, we will carry these and in all 4 colors!"

WendyB said...

The brown ones are especially ugly!

Cheryl said...

Hahahahahaha! Guess you can't blame them for seeing if it would catch on or not. I mean, what about jellies or crocs?

Kristin said...

Those are glads gone as uggo as they can go!

Asylum Dolly said...

I am so glad i am not the only one who thinks the whole sandal/boot hybrid is a fucking BAD IDEA. I'm all for creative experimentation, but just like all experiments, some work, some do NOT. These fall into the NOT category.They are ugly as sin, and they don't even look comfortable! Comfort as a reason for wearing ugly shit can be perhaps overlooked, but these don't make my tootsies go "Oooh, i just wanna slip into you" (that sounds dirty, and was meant to)

But people still buy this shit!!!! I saw two women walking together , BOTH wearing these fucking hightop sandals. Not only were they EXTREMELY unflattering for the legs- the fact that both women were wearing them at the same time kinda confirmed my suspicions that they are for the people who just wear things because they are "in fashion", without considering that what is "in fashion" may actually look like dog crap. Following the latest trends is just a shortcut to thinking for those with no sense of aesthetic or individuality IMO.

Annie said...

as my nephew would say, those are icky!!

Chic 'n Cheap Living said...

blehhhhhhhh.

Oh my dear, are you ok? Is your car ok?

I can't believe we're not Twitter buddies. Looking forward to some shoe critiques there.

Len♥reNeverM♥re said...

for those who like to dress up as gladiator costumes, brass helmets & spears included!

Shelley said...

paste a pair of wings on those bad boys and wear them with an achilles costume :) ....ugly ugly ugly

the spectator said...

I am relieved. We can still be friends. They are bloody awful.

the spectator said...

P.S. Well said Asylum Dolly. You summed fashion up perfectly.

St├ęphanie said...

That's not for me !

asweetcakes said...

eh...what are those shoes for? are they meant to be trendy? like gladiators? or sporty??!?!

Martwa Marta said...

hah, love this post! i don't like these shoes as well...

cerebral e said...

Truly heinous.

All these comments remind me of the time I was in Rome and there was an exhibit about Nike (the goddess) and all these (American, sorry) tourists thought it was about Nike (the brand). I wanted to ask them if they really thought Nike (the brand) would have an exhibition without putting their logo on display about a trillion times.

Down and Out Chic said...

ugh, yuck. double yuck.

C.B. said...

Disgusting. For shame, Nike. For shame.

Diana said...

Haha, i kind of like them! :)

Jennifer DeDonato said...

I have noticed a lot of ladies wearing this style lately.
