Some shoes are beautiful and attention-grabbing while others look ridiculous and scary. They push the boundaries of perfection and are pretty much unwearable. Have backward heels gone viral? We doubt it. Fashion should draw a line.
Have a look at Brian Atwood’s Charleston peep toe platforms, for example. They look ridiculous, with a lot of fringe detailing that looks like upholstery tassels. You will find them in the 2012 collection. Louis Vuitton’s half-boots are funny and are made from materials such as leather, metal, wood, and Mongolian lamb. They combine unique materials and fabrics such as sheepskin and monogram denim. We can’t determine the type as they are a hybrid form – something between clogs, demi-boots, and kitten heels.
Gautier’s fin-heels, the original version of which was created in 1977, are great for an underwater party. If you were looking for lace-up fin-heels, this is a one-time opportunity. Prada also made its contribution to the list of ridiculous shoes. Their tabi and platform overshoes are a combination of platforms and split-toe-socks. Finally, we have the techno sandals by Balenciaga. They have a price tag of $4,175 and are made from multicolored plastic. Besides looking bizarre, you probably experienced a sticker shock
