These shoes are another pair for the “looks a bit like a cartoon” files, aren’t they? They’d make a fabulous illustration to hang on your wall, but there’s something slightly unreal about them too. With that said, I’m sure these would look perfectly normal on a foot: that exaggerated slope to the sides would look a little less stylised away from the stark white background, leaving you with a classic black court shoe – albeit one that looks like it just stepped right out of a fairytale!
Are these unusual enough to justify the £323 price tag, I wonder, or do you prefer to pay less for what is, at the end of the day, a black court shoe?

They don’t excite me one bit. But there’s nothing wrong with them.
