Chocolate shoes by Irregular Choice. Umm….

Chocolate_shoes

Love chocolate? Love shoes? Love chocolate on your shoes? Ummm, we’d give an enthusiastic "yes" to the first two, but it’s the third question we’re not so sure about, which is why when we first laid eyes on Irregular Choice’s ‘Cortesan Chocolate’ pumps we were…puzzled…. to say the least. And not just because we initially thought that was a fried egg sitting on the front of the shoe.

It’s not, though. No, this is, in fact, this is a "chocolate" some "cream", and… actually we’re still not totally sure what the yellow thing is supposed to be, but something edible, presumably. Unlike, say, the little crystal sitting on the "cream". What, don’t you always have crystals with your cream?

Ultimately, we think this is a pretty good example of how to ruin what could have been a rather nice court shoe – and to ruin it in a rather surreal way, into the bargain. You, of course, may just find them deliciously quirky, in which case you can buy them for £64.99 at Schuh.

    They’re quirky in an ALMOST pleasant sort of way – you know, like necklaces with sculpted pendants on them that look like biscuits or cupcake earrings or suchlike; for if you’re feeling a bit childish. However, you’re right, I’d much, much prefer these shoes if they were just glorious chocolate-brown courts. 🙁 And that thing does look like a fried egg.

    I’d love those. But since you said about the fried-egg thing, I’d never look at them in the same way again.

    I saw them in the shop and really liked them! I don’t think it looks so much like a fried egg in real life. I think they are cute but I’d always be hungry wearing them haha
