Gemini 1 shoes by Acne: Two heels are better than one

Why settle for one heel on your shoes when you can have two? And yes, we know the image above shows three heels, but the shoes actually only come with two: the middle heel, which is the one you walk on, and another, detachable heel, which can be attached in either of the other two positions shown.

So, what do you think? Have you been secretly wishing designers would ditch the boring old “one heel per shoe” strategy they’ve worked with all these long years, or do you think these just look like mutants?

They’re by Acne, and they’re £570 – get them here.

    It’s not the number of heels that bothers me the most, but that these heels look like tiny, hamster-size crutches. Don’t they?

    Looks like walking on a couple of nail heads. I think I’ll pass, thank you.

    Ghastly. And probably dangerous.

    Apparently the heels are rusty too, so make sure you get your tetanus jab when you decide to “re-style” them…

    Like Acne these “shoes” are ugly and confusing.

    OMG. I am guessing that bigger girls need not apply for this pair. Imagine the embarrassment of breaking a chair x1000. Oh well, let the size 1 ladies keep this one. I think they are ugly…
