Wear or Die: Freaky flats


We love Office, we do. But as we took our usual weekly stroll through the shoe sections this morning, we couldn’t help but notice that something strange was going on with some of the flats. Something that made us scratch our heads and say, "Hmmm, if people had to wear one pair of these shoes, or die, which pair would they choose?"

Well, we’re about to find out. You can wear the nautical slip ons, featuring just about every print known to man, or you can go for the slightly more grown up be-fringed lace-ups. But if you don’t go for one of them… you die, simple as that!

Tell us which you’d choose and why…

    I’d rather wear the over-printed ones than the hideous FRINGE flats…AAAAAAAAAAARRRGGGHHH!!

    The printed shoes. They’re awful, but the fringed ones look like some kind of horrible mushroom.

    Ok this one was kinda easy, obviously the nautical flats with jeans and a top, but hell the ones on the left look like some fashion shoes for american indian women HAHAHA

    Well, it’s a toughy – but I have to go with everyone else, and say the printed flats.

    ! The nautical prints, of course. Skinny jeans and bright green skinny tee.

    If you imagine the printed ones with a foot in them, they’re not too bad. It’s the busy inner that’s making my head hurt. The shape’s quite cute and any shoes with a cephalopod on them get my vote.

    The printed flats. I agree with Beth, the shape is nice enough. Too bad the print is hideous. But it sure is better than that moccasin-monstrosity.

    I actually like the printed ones. I’m going on a sailing trip in July and those would fit right into a dockside outfit of shorts and a sailor-striped top. But then I must admit I love primary colors. 😀

    Well you can DEFINITELY cover up the uber colorful flats with long jeans and a tshirt. but those fringe mocassin things. hmmm. hard to pull off. I’d definitely pick the colorful flats

    Well, I wouldn’t let anything inspired by medieval peasants onto my feet, so I guess I’ll look insane in those nautical flats and even perk it up with some belly-dancer-sack-dress (which sadly has yet to be made) and sequined tights.
    Gonna be a fun day, yes?
