These shoes are a bit of a departure for Forever 21, but won’t be at all surprising to anyone who’s been following footwear trends over the last few months, because these have all the hallmarks of the 90s-influenced, quirky-patterned shoe we’ve come to associate, first with Miu Miu, and then with the various other brands who jumped on board the bandwagon.
For me, these shoes are just a little – OK, a LOT – too much. Having experienced the fashions of the 90s first hand, I’ve no desire at all to have to see them all come back, and while clumpy shoes definitely have their moments, I don’t think this is one of them, although I’d be more than willing to change my mind if I see someone making these work.
What do you think of them? If you love them, you can click here to buy them from Forever 21 for just $25.80.
Ooh, I like them. I’m going to have to see if they have them in stock near me to try on. 🙂
I’m bummed my mall didn’t have the print ones in stock, and the plain black ones did nothing for me, and the fit wasn’t quite right to order the print online. I ended up with 2 different pairs instead:
ankle boots in grey: http://www.forever21.com/product.asp?catalog%5Fname=FOREVER21&category%5Fname=footwr&footwr%5Fstyle=&footwr%5Fsize=&footwr%5Fcolor=&footwr%5Fprice=&product%5Fid=2078947494&Page=1#
and a pair of nude flats with a grosgrain double bow and large emerald-cut rhinestone off-centered on each shoe (can’t find a photo online).
Wow! Just Wow!
Mmmhhh… on one side I like, on the other… if the pattern were a bit smaller… must think a bit before I decide myself!
I absolutely love them, probably because they’re slightly less clumpy than the original Miu Miu ones.
I really like them. I’m going to Forever 21 next week anyway so I will have to keep an eye out for these shoes.
I’m with you. They’re just a bit too much.
I have always had a soft spot for clumpy shoes, so I’m delighted they’re back, they’re one of the few ’90s fashions it makes me happy to see again.
AND these are a particularly pretty example 🙂
I’d love them if they were in a solid color. That pattern is way too 90s for me.
I love the print, hate the platform. I was a kid/preteen in the 90’s, and these shoes just bring to mind some of the atrocities my older sister wore.
