Arrested: Prada plexi and burlap clogs

Watching Prada’s continuing adventures in perpex is like watching a car crash: it’s horrible and nauseating, but somehow you just can’t tear your eyes away…

Last time we featured one of this season’s plexi heels, it was the so-called ‘Chandelier’ shoes, which were as ostentatious as, well, a crystal chandelier. With these clogs, however, Prada have gone in the opposite direction altogether, topping a clumsy looking sole with an old piece of burlap sack, and then stretching credibility even further by charging $695 for it.

Of course, the fact that the words “plexi”, “burlap” and “clog” are used in the same product description here was always going to be a big clue that these would fall into the Crime of Fashion category, but if you’d like to bust them out of jail, just make your cheques payable to Bergdorf Goodman.

What do you think of them?

    Like these shoes, would wear them especially with brown nylon tights.

    After the croc and sock combination I witnessed yesterday evening, this seems stylish…

    Good grief. You find this sort of clear plastic shoe in dollar stores.

      That’s what I was thinking! It looks like something from Big Lots or Payless!

    I’m not a fan of the sudden ‘clog’ trend, thumbs down from me. I think they’re hideous.

    It looks like something my grandma would wear.

    If she were a stripper.

    Hmm, I actually like these alot! Much more than the chandelier heels.
    They still have the clear trend, but they’re more tasteful this way in my opinion!
    They’re not the greatest shoe ever, but I think they are nice, I would wear them!
    I wish they didn’t have the gold stud thingies though, they look kind of strange with the silver ones and the clear plastic.

    It’s stuff like this that makes me lose my faith in fashion-it’s like it’s not about creating beauty anymore, it’s about who can create the most awkward and obnoxious thing possible and hope that Lady Gaga wears it (no offense to Lady Gaga)

    Really-those are hideous, their is nothing fashionable about them
