Zappos describe these as “sandals” which, well, is clearly a big fat lie, isn’t it? An open toe does not a sandal make, and the sooner the shoe world realises that, and we can all get back to wearing season-appropriate footwear, the better.
These are boots. Peep toe boots. Alexander McQueen peep toe boots. And with those pointed, studded ankles, they look a bit cartoon villain-esque, no?
But with those bits fastened down:
Not so much. Hmmmm.
Of course, there is always that peep toe to contend with, and as much as I love peep toes in general, I tend to think that a boot is the last place they belong. I do quite like this though:
I particularly like the way the skull looks totally shocked, as if it’s thinking, “By God, I appear to have been attached to a pair of peep toe boots! Whatever next?”
What do you think of them, folks? Love? Hate? Indifferent?
If it’s love, they’re $1,159, and you can buy them here.
If they did not have the peep toe I would love these boots, but with the peep toe I have to say hate.
Hmmm, generally I hate peep toe boots, but I must admit these are kinda cool. I’m just not badass enough to be able to pull them off.
I’ve never really bought into the whole peep toe boot thing. These are just evil.
yet another pair of perfectly good boots ruined by cutting a hole in the front. you know, i used to do that to my shoes back in the old country, when i got too big for them, but my parents couldn’t afford to buy me new ones…
I have to say I rather like them, but I agree that I would like them more without the peep toe.
I love them! The heel is too skinny and I could live without the peep toe, but otherwise they’re amazing!
It’s a motorcycle jacket for feet!
Those are BADASS! I love them so much I almost bought them :(((
I hope someone makes a cheaper version…. (maybe even without a peep toe…)
I think they’re absolutely fantastic. Sure the peep toe is definitely bizarre on a boot but once you get past that they are a very (as already described) badass boot. Obviously only when buttoned down though. They just look strange with the buttons undone.
OH EMM GEE!!! THE MOST AMAZING SHOES I HAVE EVER SEEN! MUST HAVES!
