Ugly Shoes

I was trolling through the Neiman Marcus shoe sale section and noticed there was no shortage of ugly designer shoes on sale.  Ugly shoes make me laugh, especially when they are so frakking expensive.

Ahah! They're ALL terrible! What is with the boots with the feathers out the top? Seriously?
The Hunters are okay if you WORK ON A FARM!

Geezus.

Funny thing is, I could go to the cheap hoochie mama store downtown and get crazy ass shoes like this for $15.

Morgan said...

Yep, pretty much all heinous.
That last one made me throw up in my mouth a little bit.

Holy crap you've hit the mother lode of ugly! I was initially taken aback by that boot with the feathers too but on second review, the pastel platform hurrache Oxford (what the hell do you wear this with) stood out along with that o so sexy pump with the lips with a smoking cigarette. That one has got to be my favorite.

Trixie said...

I'm thinking I should take up shoe design! If these things sell for a thousand dollars (A THOUSAND DOLLARS) I would make a bloody fortune. Either that or I could get into the broken ankle fixing business.

Dancing Branflake said...

Camo heels. DOOOOO IT!!!!

rach said...

Those are all so ugly in thier own special way. I thought the lips smoking stiletto heels where particulary funny. What kind of drugs are these designers on?!?

rach said...

good lord- I just re-read my comment. my brain obviously doesn't work for spelling or grammer after 9pm. I do know the difference between where and were! lol

Ren- Lady Of The Arts said...

the Reed Krakoff is so ugly- and 398 on sale- wow.

Mandy_Fish said...

I actually saw those smoking lips shoes in the store. I stopped and did a double take.

You're Lucky I Don't Have a Gun... said...

At the risk of letting the world know how ridiculous my sense of style is at the moment, I would wear three of those. I won't say which three, but I WILL say that they do not involve feathers, lips, military wear, or any other assholery.

Jen said...

Uhgg. That frumpy brown cross-cross Grandma shoe is hideous!

jorg wobblington lopez said...

I like the feathered motorcycle boot the best.

La Mode Operandi said...

I gotta say fashion can definitely be ridiculous. they seem to just come up with the most outrageous design in fear of being too mainstream. All all it ends up to be is hideous and on sale.

sporkgasm said...

Designer shoes are weird.

This coming from a girl who has high heels with the heel made of a brass knuckle, and another pair called "Zombie Stompers" that are green with zombie faces all over them. haha.

Caroline said...

I don't get it...why someone would pay $$$$ for shit like this? I mean...really????

Trissta said...

Heyyyyyy.... Those rubber yellow YSL pumps were at the top of my want list.... Right above the Brian Atwood rafetta. Man. You totally just killed my dreams. ;)

Although, I think those camo heels would be uber fab on you. Just sayin'. Maybe you should consider them.

Much Love,
Trissta

nicole said...

hahah some of these i LOVE, but you are right on about others, specifically the wimpy heeled variety!!!

Miss Caitlin S. said...

haha you are incessantly funny. I do like about 6 of these... but I am appalled as a human that those Ralph Lauren Umeeda shoes exist. barf!

Cheryl Ann said...

oh my dear lord...those are awful!!

my faves:
6th down on the left - looks like a pinata is exploding out of the heel
2nd up from the bottom, on the right - boots with the feathers?! what the hell.

SabinePsynopsis said...

Aahh, you found some great examples! I actually fancy a pair or two... They'd definitely be a conversation starter.

tulpen said...

I sorta hate shoes, I live in Dansko clogs.


Holy shit these are fugly.

Kaz said...

Those beige boots with the fluffy top look like something from Dr Seuss

Kathryn said...

While I like offbeat stuff, this goes beyond to just pain ugly, especially the Prada "lips" shoes. Who the heck would think it is cool to have lips on your shoes?

Jill said...

Agreed!

NellieVaughn said...

I used to collect ugly shoes, but my dog ate them when he was still a pup. The shoes on the top left, I absolutely adore. I have a problem.

Tom Tuttle from Tacoma said...
