Even although the thought of paying £500 for a pair of plexiglass sandals makes me break out in a cold sweat, and I can already imagine what kind of reaction these shoes will get from most of my readers, there’s something about them that’s really pleasing to the eye. I suspect it’s probably just the colour mix: those blues and greens make me think of the sea, especially when combined with the clear uppers, and they’re just very soothing to look at.
Would I wear them? Probably not, although I like them better than most clear plastic shoes I see.
Would I buy them? Definitely not. I did mention the £500 price tag, didn’t I?
If you would, however, they’re available at Colette, and you can click here to find them. Here’s one more photo for the road:
I don’t hate these. They are still mildly close to stripper shoes, and plastic, taking them forever off my list (especially at that price!) I do love the colors though. With a fabric or leather upper (and a price tag about 10% of what it currently is), I probably would’ve considered them.
They look great on their own. But add the sight of squished toes to that and the picture is not so pretty.
Plus the luminosity of the blue would be lost once it’s on a foot. And the same for most of the heel, in the shade of a body.
Plastic shoes: no.
