It’s been a while since our last round of “Heroes or Villains”, so what better way to pass a hump-day? Other than actual shoe shopping, obviously? I can’t think of one, so without further ado, let us decide whether these ‘Pickle’ Mary Janes from ASOS are Shoeperheroes or Shoepervillains!
These shoes have a classic, Mary Jane shape, but come with an unusually high vamp, a thicker-than-usual heel, and a top-to-toe heart print. They’re the kind of shoes which are either unbearably cute or, well, just plain unbearable, depending on your point of view. Are they cuter-than-cute, though, or are they just sickeningly twee? That’s where you come in…
As for me, well, I always struggle a little with Mary Janes in general, because I think that unless the designer is very careful to give them a “grown up” feel, they can look very childish – especially with the addition of a cutesy print. The Mary Janes I like most tend to place the strap down towards the toe, as opposed to across the base of the foot, like these ones, and I think its the shape, rather than the print, which may be the downfall of these. Let’s find out, though:
What do you think? Shoeperheroes or Shoepervillains?
