These Irregular Choice Thumper shoes will be available to buy in the UK in just a few short weeks. Do you want to walk on a rabbit, though, or do you think these bunnies should be set free? Let’s take a look at the evidence…
Irregular Choice Thumper heels – available this March
OK, Irregular Choice, we get it: you’re “quirky”. And also a little kerrrazy. Your the choice that is “irregular”, for people who love to be different, and ain’t nothing wrong with that.
There’s a difference, though, between “quirky” and “looking like you’re stepping on an ickle pink bunny wabbit, OMG, who would do such a thing!” We know which of those WE think these Irregular Choice Thumper heels is (the clue is in the post title, just in case it’s not obvious enough for you), but we’re curious to know what YOU think.
Irregular Choice posted a photo of these on Twitter last week, and Schuh, who’ll be selling them in the UK, posted their own image of the shoes on their Facebook page: you can see the red version here, and the black version here. The reaction was, predictably, mixed. As with so many of Irregular Choice’s designs, it seems that those who love them REALLY love them, and will be counting down the days until they’re available to buy (probably just in time for Mother’s Day, if you’re in this camp, and already pulling out your credit card), while those who hate them think you might as well buy a plastic dog toy and glue it to the sole of a shoe.
Basically, what it boils down to is that those who love them see an OMGCUTEBUNNYWUNNY and those who hate them see the SAME cute bunny… being stamped on. “A bit uncomfortable for the bunny,” remarked one Facebook user. Well, quite.
These will be available at Schuh this March, and will retail for £99. What we want to know is, are they a crime of fashion? Do you see the cute rabbit or the trampled rabbit? Is it a crime of fashion, or did you not even bother reading this far, because you’re off to camp outside Schuh until they’re available?
