The Shoe Motherlode

Sunday, November 14th, 2010

Everyone probably knows about this but me. However just in case I’m not alone in my ignorance, there is a Virtual Shoe Museum where you can marvel at weird shoes all day long!

Check out William (Boy) Habraken‘s collection of tribal and ethnographical shoes…the largest in the world.

The Virtual Shoe Museum has a user-friendly data-base that lets you search by material (fur, feathers, plastic, wool, etc) designer, style, etc. Go have some fun!

A Shoegasm, Not

Sunday, October 10th, 2010

I know, you thought it was two shoes but it isn’t. Here is the explanation at Solestruck:

Can you handle the insane amount of ferocity in this Jeffrey Campbell XXL?? There is so much going on, it’s hard to focus on anything except how KILLER this shoe is! Futuristic, animalistic, and over-the-top hot, this one is for all the wild cards out there! Featuring leather upper, suede cutouts, cheetah print, and a mirrored architectural mirrored wedge heel. Pick yourself off the floor and get this shoe before it’s gone for good! 4 3/4″ heel, 1 1/2″ platform. Leather upper and man made sole.

God. Now what??

Morbid Awful Footwear plus DIY

Monday, October 4th, 2010

The shoes at Saks.com are like a festival of roadkill.

I’ve always loved fur but something about this footwear trend is making me gag. I wonder how dogs react when they see these things approaching? I’ve tried to decide which pair above is the ugliest, but it hurts to dwell upon them.

On a related note, I am stuck with my Kate Moss Groupie Coat, since no one on ebay was astute enough to buy it from me.

There is no fucking way I’m going to wear this coat and look like a Chanel Yeti or anything of that ilk. I bought it last year in a moment of delirium.

What can I do to make this coat better? I’m thinking of cutting it off to make a short jacket. Is this good or not good? Would I need to hem it? Because I can’t handle that.

Should I add some color with paint or sharpies or something?

I could run a huge contest called “Fuck Up My Coat” and post all your ideas on Flickr, but no, that’s not how I roll. Just let me know if you have a suggestion.

This is the work of (IN)DECOROUS TASTE, who I just discovered thanks to my twisted sister, Mary.

Look at the spikes inside the acrylic platform!

If this shit isn’t insanely fierce and killing it, I don’t know what is.

OMG, Killing It

Sometimes it’s not enough to wear fierce boots that you can barely walk in and that make your feet look like hooves. Sometimes, you need horseshoes on the soles in order to get that Fuck, Yeah look.

Here’s how Style Noir describes these boots:

“Continuing our fetish theme this month, we bring to you possibly the most insane, yet visually stunning heels we’ve seen in a very long time. Forget surreal heels, these bad boys out-do anything you’ve ever seen before.”

Wow. “Bad boys,” “insane.” Ready to go on?

We have simply fallen in love with these. Imagine these teamed with tribal fashion, fur and a serious sense of attitude. Could anything look better?

I actually think something could look better, but that’s just me.

What an arresting image! I love it.

Can any of you smart ones offer an exegesis?

Irregular Choice or Unspeakable Horror?

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

I’m aware that the shoe brand Irregular Choice has its fans but surely this specimen is unforgivable.   Take a moment to ponder the insults going on here. For some reason, the open toe strikes me as the last straw.

I’m sad that the site selling this shoe doesn’t engage in descriptive language.   I can’t begin to imagine what anyone could say.   “Rats chewed the heel off this plucky little oxford and we patched the front with Grandma’s curtains!”

I can’t do it. Is anyone up to the challenge?
