Style Trial: Miu Miu printed fabric Western boots. With elephants.

Miu Miu Western boots

Elephants. And… 70s wallpaper. You’ll never see one without thinking of the other now, will you?

These fabric boots are by Miu Miu, who like their footwear to veer abruptly from the sublime to the ridiculous, with absolutely no middle ground. In fact, we don’t think we’ve ever seen a pair of Miu Miu shoes we didn’t either love or hate. They just don’t seem to do do “meh”, which we guess is a good thing. No one likes “meh” after all.

Which are these, though? Are they sublime, or are they ridiculous? Are they innocent, or are they guilty of the charge of committing crimes of fashion? Jurors, it’s up to you to decide…

    I like looking at them, but they’re not my style at all. It looks like they have tigers on them too, in-keeping with the whole India-on-acid kind of thing they’ve got going on.

    Perfect for a Republican cocktail party fundraiser in a nouveau riche Texas McMansion.

    Love the shape, hate the fabric. If they were black suede I’d be all over them 🙂

    My eyes are bleeding from the sheer ugliness of those.

    I think there are some girls out there that could pull this off. I am not one of them.

    I think they’re fabulous. Not exactly sure with what I would wear them, or to where, but I totally would!

    I actually love these! Though I can’t tell if it’s only the shape I’m enjoying, because the print does make me think of a bandana a bit. But I think someone could–and will–rock these!

    I have this teacher in my school and she wears stylish clothes every day and she looks pretty BUT she always wears crazy boots!!!!! Sometimes she will wear something like a black dress and a pretty necklace with some big bracelets and wear cowboy boots with bright red paisley patterns. Ugh!! It drives me nuts!!! And when I saw these boots I thought immediately of Ms. Berg.
