Frankenshoes: Rick Owens organza trimmed wedges

Rick Owens organza trimmed leather wedge sandalThese shoes will “lend your evening look an instant hit of high-fashion drama” say Net-a-Porter.  For £1,200 we would hope they would do more than lend it to us!  We’re not sure what we dislike most about these: the fact that they are a boot pretending to be a sandal, or the crazy organza attachment around the ankle.  From the side they’ve got a Mohawk, look:
