Boots-Pretending-to-Be-Shoes by Stefano Branchini

Shoe_boots

Please… could someone just make it stop now? The boots-pretending-to-be-shoes, the shoes-pretending-to-be-socks – we’re sick of them all and we want them all to just go away. Please. And yeah, yeah, we get it. The "quirkiness". The "unexpectedness". Oh, the hilarity, because look! A shoe! That is actually a boot! Oh, how we laugh. Only not really, obviously.

This example really takes the biscuit because the colour of the boot in question will actually make you look like you’re wearing these shoes (these rather ugly shoes, we might add) with a pair of American Tan surgical stockings. A great look, we’re sure you’ll agree, and one that you’ll pay £105 for at Yoox.com.

    OK don’t hate me, but these are sorta cute. I think it’s because the d’orsay style of the “shoe” part makes it look less like the dreaded “boot pretending to be a shoe”, and more just like “boot with contrast toe, heel, and ankle strap”. Not so bad.

    Ewwwww! The “flesh” part of the boot is completely creeping me out.

    Hahahaha, the boot part didn’t remind me of stockings, but of really, really horrible faux tan!

    Wouldn’t it look like you had false legs? Double amputee, just below the knee? They look like they’re made out of wood!

    This may sound horrible, but they make me think of Heather Mills.

    I have a pair of shoes that are that colour blue. It’s just about the most unflattering colour you can wear on your feet.
