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.
