Heroes or Villains? Prada’s ‘Smoking’ sandals

Prada 'Smoking' sandals

I’ve shown you a lot of different types of shoe embellishments over the years: bows, flowers, buttons, er, mice. I’ve also shown you a msattering of shoes which come complete with eyes, mouths and other facial features. I think this just might be the first time I’ve shown you a shoe smoking a cigarette before, though, which just goes to show that there really is no limit to the things designers will put on shoes these days, seriously.

These sandals are by Prada, they’re £590 at Nordstrom, and they’re smoking. And by that, I don’t mean they’re “hot”, either: I mean they’re actually smoking. Now, I have a big aversion to what I think of as “novelty” shoes, so these just don’t appeal to me at all, but I’m willing to accept that my taste is a little old-fashioned in this respect, so I’ll let you decide: are these Shoeperheroes or Shoepervillains? What do you think?


  • I have to say that is the worst embellishment that I have ever seen and that is saying something. I dont like the message that smoking is sexy. The shoes themselves are mediocre and they are topped by something that would piss me off or make me feel sad when I think how hard it is for people to stop such a bad habit.

  • So i just commented on these on the fashion police, but I just wanted to say again that I love these. I have no idea why, they’re just kinda funky in the perfect way! I also really do not get the smoking hate! It’s a personal choice. Anyway, can you imagine how funny it would look if the person wearing these shoes was smoking?
