Oh, M. Louboutin, NO.
From a distance, I thought I was going to love these. I thought it was a simple, two-tone version of the Lady Peep platforms, which I love, in a particularly nice shade of sky blue. I was even going to make them the subject of the Friday Night Louboutin Fix.
Then I looked closer.
And now I want to cry. I mean, what on earth made him think this particular shoe – or ANY shoe, for that matter – really needed to have an upper made out of a TOWEL? It’s just so wrong. And it’s even more wrong in white:
What’s even worse about these shoes is that with a leather or suede upper, I’d have loved them. But with the towel… I just see a REALLY expensive towel. And a shoe tragedy into the bargain.
Is it just me? Do you think towel uppers are the footwear of the future? Click here to buy them, if so.
