A Disturbing Friday Shoe Haiku


We interrupt our regularly scheduled shoe programming (normally the kicks are from my closet) to bring you a photo of this so-hideous-it's-not-to-be-missed "boot" — and that word is used very loosely.

Yo! U-G-L-Y
You ain't got no alibi
You be ug-ugly.

Shoe 'n Tell: I'm on a desperate quest to find the most perfect, inexpensive lace-up wedge booties. I stumbled across these MM6 Maison Martin Margiela "stretch zori boots." They are horrible. Even worse, they are sold out in all but two sizes. Worse than that, they are $190. On sale. As my 5-year-old would say, "What the HECK?!"

I can hardly stare at them without wincing. Seriously. I gotta go. Ugh!

Or, as your way-older-than 5-year-old friend would say "WTF?!?"

They look like something you wear after surgery.

These are socks, not shoes!

Those frighten mee. The image of them is now seared on my brain. I'm going to go eat a piece of chocolate to focus on something good.

they do look like some sort of compression garment, don't they?!? sorry for causing your retinas to burn, gals.

Oh my god, these are so weird! A sock, a boot, a sandal? What are they! And that price tag... ouch!
