Green wedge “peep toes” by Melissa: explain it to us please

Green_wedge_shoes

Setting aside the fact that Melissa generally make brightly coloured plastic shoes which are not unlike Crocs, we need to take issue with this:

Peeptoe

Seriously, what’s all that about, then? What’s the point? Is there one? Because that’s not really a "peep toe", is it? It’s more like an illustration of what would happen if you took an extra large hole punch to the toe of your (chunky, green) shoes. If it rains, your toes will surely get wet. If it doesn’t rain, fine, but it’s not like it’s exactly adding anything to the shoe, is it? Is it a flower holder? A place to keep your pen? What?!

These are £50 from Topshop, and we should probably point out that Melissa aren’t the only ones doing the "weird hole in the toe" thing lately. Lots of culprits are. We’ll get to them later…

    It looks like a breathing hole for some kind of toe-dwelling maggot. EEK.

    It looks like a miniature golf green shoe. I think it is designed to look like a golf course. 🙂

    It looks like what would happen if you were a creepy hermit who never cut your toenails….

    Funny that you mentioned Crocs… my first thought was, “They look like Crocs made out of felt.”

    maybe if you paint your toenails the exact same shade of green and wear them, no one would ever know.. 😉

    It looks better when someone wears it – I swear. This isn’t my favourite from Melissa, but it’s not so horrid as in the picture.
