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?
the shape of the shoe itself is lovely but…
the thing on the heel resembles a hairball…
kind of puts me off.
I would like it without the nest of veil around the heel, reminds me of a widow and birds.
I like the front though, and agree with Jenny the shape is lovely.
i’m firmly in the “woulda been cute if not ambushed by dust bunnies” camp
I think they are really pretty. Flamboyant and impractical, but lovely nonetheless. These would be gorgeous in a fashion editorial shot.
I would never wear them, but I do like to look at them.

I’d wear these a lot, actually.
I think they are absolutely stunning. As if they have appeared from a mystical forest somewhere:)
