Pfeiffer by Minna Parikka, £260
Well, well, what have we ‘ear? (Sorry: I tried so hard not to say that, but it slipped out anyway. I guess it’s probably a good idea for anyone thinking of buying these shoes to prepare themselves for the multitude of “ear” jokes they’d be destined to ‘ear – I mean hear – though, so…) It’s a pair of shoes with ears! Well, we’ve had lots of shoes with faces to look at over the past few months: I guess we were long overdue a pair with ears!
At least, I THINK these Minna Parikka shoes have ears, anyway. At first glance, and looking at them from the side, I assumed it was just a rather vintage-style pump with a very high tongue, but from the front I definitely see the ears of a small animal of some kind. I’d say more about my feelings on this but… I’m afraid they might hear me.
These come in a choice of three different colours, and in addition to the purple version shown above, there’s also a leopard print and a pink version. I really love this shade of purple, though, and I also like the curvy heel. These are very typical of Minna Parikka’s whimsical shoe style, but what do you think of shoes with ears?
Oh no, I hate them. Like, absolutely despise them. Ugly ugly! Too bad that all that gorgeous fuchsia/purple suede had to go to waste… 🙁
Hate the ears with a passion. Love the colour and shape of the rest of the shoe.
