On the issue of Comme des Garcons, I’m so heavily biased that I don’t think my opinion is even relevant. I don’t think I’ve ever seen an item by the label, be it shoe, dress, pants or anything else, that I’ve liked, so naturally these “bare feet” lace-ups aren’t going onto my wish-list any time soon.
Like I said, though, I’m biased, so please do tell me what you think of these! If you’d like to buy them, meanwhile, they’re $761 from Colette. Oh, and they’re also available in black.
