Frankenshoes: Zaha Hadid and Lacoste join forces

Lacoste-shoes

And here we were, thinking Crocs were probably as bad as it was going to get, plastic-shoe-wise.

These are the result of a collaboration between Lacoste and Zaha Hadid, and while, granted, the actual shoe itself isn't quite as bad as a Croc, the thick strip of plastic winding its way up the leg takes these into a whole other league: and it's not a league we particularly want to join. To quote an oft-used phrase here at The Fashion Police, "Think of the tan lines!" Also: think of how that cold plastic would feel against your skin!

We're going to pass, but if you can't wait to wind that plastic up your leg, you're gong to have to wait until July, which is when these will be released. Visit the Lacoste website for more information.

    Two words: Sweaty. Feet.

    I mean, giving these every benefit of the doubt comfort-wise, they’d still make you look like you’re auditioning for a part in an Aquaman remake.

    Wow, just in time for summer. They wouldn’t just make your feet sweaty, they would probably makes your calves sweaty as well!

    For some reason this makes me think of mutants from X-men…

    I was a super hero one Halloween, but if I get those shoes maybe I can switch up my costume a bit and be a mutant or villain this year.

    these are WORSE than crocs. At least crocs are practical for in the garden or for children.
    These are just ugh.

    I actually had a spontaneous verbal reaction of disgust when I scrolled down and saw this picture.

    These just look sinister and reptilian for some reason.

    Totally matching with my shiny superhero costume. If I’d ever get one.

    Umm

    Why am I not surprised Lacoste had a part in this? Really, when you buy something Lacoste, all you’re getting is “La COST”.
