Jean Paul Gaultier mates sandals with baseball boots, creates fashion crime

Gaultier_ankle_boots

Oh good God, what the hell is this? It’s… no, it can’t be. Surely it can’t be. It is, you know. Yes, it’s a… it’s a baseball boot shoved inside a high heeled sandal. It’s what happens when two very different styles of shoes decide to mate – or have the decision made for them by one Jean Paul Gaultier, who is responsible for this bastard lovechild of sneaker and stiletto.

These are $829 at Zappos, which may sound like a lot, but when you think about it, you’re actually getting four shoes for the price of two, no? No? Are we not convincing you here?

(Thanks to Simone for the report!)

    Some sort of mutation has taken place in the mating of the two shoe styles.

    I hope sneaker and stiletto stop here and don’t decide to have more children.

    i like them…they are funky and edgy and would look great with a pair of straight leg jeans and a sexy yet casual top!
