A Fall Footwear “Don’t”


Sometimes I find things at online stores that I simply cannot comprehend. And these boots most definitely fall into the “what were they thinking” category. In fact, I’d almost put them on par with the hideous high heeled sneaker that became somewhat prevalent a decade or so ago (don’t pretend you don’t remember).

For the most part, Casadei knows what they’re doing in terms of footwear (the beauties at the top right of this page, which I’m a bit obsessed with, are a good example of that), but no one ever needed to invent a PVC knee-high boot/mary jane hybrid. They’re part stripper, part little girl’s party shoe – a strangely unsettling combination, I think you’ll agree.

    maybe it was meant as humor. The wearer notices someone noticing her footwear and exclaims, “Haha! You thought I was wearing sexy heels but alas no! They are in fact gawdy boots! Haha! Loser!” The “Noticer” then thinks to himself, “Yes, those are boots. But that would make you the loser my friend.”

    Holy crap! I just clicked on the link above and these hideous boots are $237! I wouldn’t pay $2.37 for these things.

    I saw someone wearing a knock off of these today and they were with white knee high socks. She looked like she needed a cane to walk. People wear the most insane stuff to school.
