Frankenshoes: The Benched Shoe by Jeffrey Campbell

Jeffrey Campbell has been on the Fashion Police’s ‘Wanted’ list for a while now, for being part of a deadly duo (Jessica Simpson being the other half) who, between them, managed to convinced fashionistas around the world last year that they desperately needed to make their feet look like they belonged on a giantess.

Now Jeffrey is back with ‘The Benched Shoe’. Clearly Jeff was disturbed halfway through designing this, and the result is that the entire middle section is missing. There’s a toe and a heel, but arch support? Forget it.

We’re going to be generous here and assume that these shoes are more comfortable, and better for your feet, than the images suggest. Would you buy them, though, that is the question? Will they be the next ‘Lita’?

    I get a pull in my arches without proper support. Those look really painful.

    Artistically they look pretty cool, but practically, it would be too painful… runway only I guess…

    Have you seen the mojito shoes by Julian Hakes? They don’t have an arch either but they’re so beautiful

    They’d look good in a sculptural exhibition,beautiful to look at, but I wouldn’t put my tootsies anywhere near them, just the thought and my poor feet cry out for clemency….
