The Cowboy Thong Sandal

A shoe that lives up to its name. Wrong on so many levels.

And yet somehow I feel that Erin Wasson would love them.They might even be worse than the Gladiator Converse. Both signal the end of civilization.

Neiman Marcus, $495

    $495 for a pair of jandals glued to some spats? Madness.

    Get out of my head! I did a post on these things once:

    Loss for words.

  5. WendyB Says:

    A lot going on there, none of it good.

  6. Romeo Says:

    How am I supposed to strap my spurs onto those?

  7. Ann Says:

    They are worse than the Converse. They’re worse than almost anything.

    Think Sea or Mom will curate them? Or are they too pedestrian?

  8. Faux Fuchsia Says:

    I think that this footwear contravenes a number of Workplace Health and Safety Requirements.

    These are tough economic times, who can afford this type’o’thing?

  9. Eliza Says:

    I’m going with too pedestrian, Ann, especially for Dallas and how $500 is pocket money tossed at “casual flats.”

    Want to know the true end of civilization? Nubby Twiglet posts screencaps of her Twitter updates and Facebook statuses in her blog entries between regular photographs. The cyber equivalent of building a Starbucks across from another Starbucks (at least back in the day).

    Also Sister, are we still calling you Judy? If we are, you should know that I have done a new special side bar whatsy on my blog spelling out what I Choose to Source (Discounted High End Designer Clobber). I was totally inspired by your recent Jacket Curation. Frankly, as far as I’m concerned I Source, Therefore I Am.

    Open-toe-anything euphoria slowly spreading its ugly toes to all layers of society, I fear next summer. I still can’t quite digest man in flip-flops, never will.

    I just can’t look at it long enough to
    come up with something snappaay!

    I have never. ever. understood
    the gladiator shoe thang.

    just what the fuck.
    an invitation to a lion fight?
    to a public be-heading?

    it makes me desperate.
    i put my head in my hands and i cry.
    aloud.

    Uh, they are a piece of hideous crap. Who buys it? Who buys it for this kind of money??? Would not wear them for free.
    What is happening to the footwear in general? We have rat accents, hoofs and lobster pincers pretending to be shoes, and say what you want, I know that Queen Marie likes them – I think that Prada crystal sandals are hideous crap too; a clog mated with a chandelier and produced an offspring…

    those ARE THE MOST HORRIBLE items you’ve ever posted. god i hate half shoe half sandal.

    my eyes are bleeding…

    Hmmm. So Sigerson Morrison has switched influences from tribal to cowgirl. Loved the tribal collection but at the same time felt that it appropriated another culture a bit too much. This cowgirl collection (assuming there are more belt buckles on other shoes) will be easy to avoid.

  16. Pudfish Says:

    these shoes are so weird, they look like the result of mating a flip-flop with a suit of armour.. eew, that’s gonna give me nightmares..

  17. TheShoeGirl Says:

    This shoe should be last week’s Cunt of the Weekâ„¢

  18. Sister Wolf Says:

    Miggs – Madness, exactly.

    maya – If they could see a mirror, that’s what they’d say, too.

    Iron Chic – Horrible!

    Aja – Hahaha. wordless horror is the normal reaction.

    WendyB- Why didn’t they realize this??

    Romeo – Maybe you could wear these with your leather chaps.

    Ann – They really are worse than anything.

    Faux Fuchsia – They violate all that is sacred and decent. (Just call me Judy when I model my crap)

    Eliza – Building a Starbucks IN a Starbucks!

    dust – Oh god, next summer, more gladiators….

  19. Sister Wolf Says:

    XuXu – Dry your tears
    the shoes will die soon
    So that you can live.

    Cricket9 -Perhaps shoes are expressing the earth’s pain and sorrow?

    theresa – I know. They are tragic and criminal at the same time. I apologize.

    miss cavendish – Nicely put, thank you.

    Pudfish – Maybe we should sue Neiman Marcus for our emotional suffering or whatever it’s called!

    TheShoeGirl – Hahaha, if shoes could be cunts, they’d be complete cunts, ugh.

    Very nice site! Love the product. As a fashion industry professional, I am always out looking for the latest trends, news, and basically anything related to fashion at all. It’s amazing how much related information you can find just by hitting the search button in google. I feel that anything you can wear needs to be both fashionable and functional at the same time. Having one without the other still works, but a product needs to have both to be truly great. I think this hits the mark on both accounts, but you should consider reducing the size of the photo at the top, it loaded pretty slow for me and I almost left just as it loaded. Anyways, I think no matter what you are looking for, whether it be basketball shoes,high heels,coats, or pants, you gotta have style. Thanks for the good read, I’ll put it on my RSS list if I can find the thing! Gotta go, keep your site updated a little more please, thanks.
