Crime of Fashion: Are these $4175 Balenciaga shoes the ugliest footwear ever made?

Balenciaga_lego_shoes
Lookit! Lego attacked that poor woman’s foot! Oh no, wait… it’s a shoe. And while it looks like it came straight out of your kid brother’s Meccano set  but it’s actually a shoe, and, more specifically, it’s a $4,175 shoe by Balenciaga, which just goes to show that some people really do have more money than sense.

Sing it with us, folks: Transformers! Shoes in disguise!

    i was shocked when i saw it a few months ago
    perhaps some may find it creative n’ funny, but to me, it’s a disaster – simply fugly!
    last but not least, it should be “Ba’l'enciaga” instead of “Ba’ll’enciaga”
    luv ur blog <3

    okay some designers work can be chalked up to creative genius. and it’s really cool, even if you’d never wear it. but these are just a strange abuse of power.

    So _this_ is what Joseph Conrad meant.

    you people are all nuts, these shoes rock theyre so innovative off beat and fun. of course you wouldnt wear them down the street but thats what couture is about, pushing the boundries of artistic design and challenging peoples idea of fashion…. im a snob i know, sorry :-)

    Ahaha I agree with Sarah, they’re pretty darn cool to me, I’d even get caught wearing them if I had something to match, and didn’t value my feet.
    But I’m a sucker for anything unique like this

    you ppl don’t understand the creative process to get to this final product, it’s just part of a whole collection and way to express the vision of the house, doesn’t mean you have to dress like that.. just get inspired… if you buy it great.. you are buying a piece of art.

    I have to agree with everyone else who said these shoes are great. Their being different is what makes them so amazing. I bought a knock-off from Bakers and they are a little harder to wear, but not with a pair of skinny jeans and a black top like Beyonce did… Try to see the art and architecture in them!
