I posted this photo on The Fashion Police last week, and it actually got a much warmer reaction than I’d expected, with most people absolutely loving the shoes in question, and only a few saying they looked like they’d been left outside too long, and had started to grown their very own culture.
Naturally, then, I wanted to find out what Shoeperwoman readers thought of them, too. They’re by Valentino, and are part of a line milliner Philip Treacy has designed for the brand. They cost an amazing £3,833. At that price, I wouldn’t dare to actually wear them, but I have a feeling these are probably best regarded as works of art rather than as functional footwear anyway. What do you think of them?
