MM6 Maison Martin Margiela stretch ‘Zori’ boots: or “Socks attached to flip flops”, as we call them

Stuck-Together Daylight Robbery

Stuck-Together Daylight Robbery

These criminals were reported to us by Robyn, who says: “Anyone else think that $380 is too much to pay for what is basically a sock attached to a foot bed? Anyone think calling this a “boot” is quite the stretch, dear Tobi? Because I do.”

We do too, Robyn. YOU ARE NOT ALONE! And we’re actually quite concerned about this, because where do we even start? It’s a sock stuck to a flip-flop. It’s a boot pretending to be a shoe. It’s a peep toe boot. It’s Daylight Robbery. It’s sock horror! It’s all these crimes of fashion, rolled into one, and you just never know where that kind of experiment will end, do you? A peep-toe harem pant attached to Crocs with a $1 million price tag, perhaps? The mind boggles.

    I actually sort of like them. I am just not a fan of the length of the back part of the sandals. They are a bit too long.

    Well they’re an improvement on the suede boots crossed with flip flops that people were wearing last year. But no, these are not boots.

    That’s it, I’m becoming a fashion designer. Obviously I can throw any nonsense together, call it “art”, and make a fortune.

    Actually, these are cute. But can you throw them in the laundry with the rest of your socks? I sure do hope so.
