Frankenshoes: Marc Jacobs mates shoes and tables

Marc-jacobs-shoes

Yes, folks, Marc Jacobs, mad scientist that he is, has been at it again, and this time his experiments seem to have centred around throwing a table and a shoe into a room and leaving them alone for a few hours to see what happened.

This is what happened: a shoe with a table-leg attached to it. And not a very nice shoe, either, if we're honest. Seriously, if you have to combine shoes and tables, Marc, could you not have picked a shoe that at least looks like it's supposed to have a heel?

Instead, he's picked a shoe that can only be described as "sensible". This shoe never wanted a stiletto heel. It wanted to be left alone, to live out its days in peace and quiet, maybe taking the odd stroll to the  shops for a cup of tea and a scone.

Instead, this happened to it. Poor shoe. If you feel like rescuing it, you can buy it here, but be warned: it may not look it, but it's $792.

    I think the table-heel is awesome. The shoe part totally ruins it.

    I LOVE the heel! Can’t say the same about the rest of the shoe, though… What a shame!

    I agree with Maayan. The heel is cool, the shoe is absolutely awful. My grandmother wears cooler shoes. (She really does, I’ve recently given a pair of boots she didn’t use anymore to a friend!)

    Poor shoe. I blame the table and its evil ways.

    The shoe also seems to be platformed on a piece of sponge cake.

    Heinous.
    We used have a school shoe back when I was a student called “desert boots” which were all the rage (I live in Australia) and these look quite like a desert boot that someone has stuck a platform and heel underneath.
    Not good.
