If you keep up with the world of fashion at all, I’m sure you won’t need me to tell you that Prada’s chandelier shoes are currently being hailed as one of the “It” shoes of this season. I have to be honest: I’m really struggling to understand just WHY that is, because although I know it’s not actually the case, everything about these shoes just screams “cheap” to me, from the tip of their crystal-trimmed toes to their lucite heels.
Can we also talk about that clear plastic velcro strap? Or don’t we need to even mention how cheap it looks?
Well, I’ve made it pretty clear how I feel about these (and have saved myself $1,800 into the bargain!), but what about you, readers? These shoes are obviously being coveted by shoe bloggers the world over for a good reason: anyone want to explain to me what it is?
These aren’t yet available to buy, and will be in limited supply when they are: rumour has it that the US will receive only three pairs, so once again, sorry if I’ve just dashed your hopes of ever owning a pair. What do you think of them, though?
Tacky and nasty. That is all.

Awful. Utterly, totally, and despicably awful.

playthings. not for dress-up, but for babies when they’re in that stage of throwing things.

just not what a shoe should look like.
It looks like the whole thing is made out of cheap plastic and also reminds me more of the kind of shoes a stripper would wear.
They remind me of stripper heels as well.
The velcro is my favourite bit, especially the way the two parts don’t quite line up. 😉
The velcro part reminds me of a plaster/band-aid
Taaaacky. The worst bit has got to be the velcro strap. I just don’t get the addition of the excess (cheap looking) dangly bits. Villains for sure!
Actually, if the heels were metal like the rest of the shoe and they got rid of that awful strap, I might possibly like them. Of course, without the changes it just looks like a really weird, really cheap stripper show.
Terrible. They look like dress up shoes for 7-year-old girls. Not even cute ones.

Cheap! The velcro strap is just… awful. The rest of the shoe is not pretty either
Shoeper woman, I have never claimed to be the most versed and/or experienced when it comes to designer footwear. Perhaps it is my general inexperience in the field, or the fact that I have always been a little skeptical about what designers dictate as ‘fashionable’. I too fail to see the appeal in these great hunks of plastic. Hell, I buy most of my clothes from the op-shop (or thrift store, whatever you want to call it), and still they look way too cheap to grace my feet. This is designer worship gone mad!
