Style on Trial: Sally Seashell ankle boots by Haus of Price

Shoes! And… shells! OK, so it’s not the most obvious of pairings, we’ll give you that. It’s not like you can’t see a pair of stiletto ankle boots without thinking of crashing waves, golden sand, and lots of little creatures living inside seashells, is it?

Haus of Price, however, have managed to make just that connection, taking a pair of regular looking ankle boots, and then sticking seashells to them, in the manner of a child’s craft project. What do you think of the result, though? Do you find these pleasingly unique – after all, it’s not everyone who’ll have a pair of seashell shoes, now, is it? – or are you wondering how long it would take to pick all of those shells off them again? Tell us!

    Interesting idea, I guess. A- for originality, D+ for prettiness.

    The shells totally ruin the silhouette of the otherwise awesome boot…

    They should go all out on these! Give them a tropical feel, make them available in some kind of sea-blue color. It wouldn’t make them any more wearable, but they’d certainly be fun for a sea- or mermaid-on-land-themed Halloween costume.

    They have a certain charm to them. I’d wear them with a special outfit.

    Looks too much like a cheap pseudo-crafty homemade creation.
