Pointless Footwear: Opening Ceremony fur wedge sandal booties

That’s a whole bunch of oxymorons right there in the title.  Fur sandals?  Sandal booties?  It just doesn’t make sense.  You may also be forgiven for thinking that that’s a small dog you’re looking at.  But no, it’s just another  pointless shoe from Opening Ceremony.  Why you would need faux fur and an open heel and peep toes is beyond us, but there must be a market for it, or it would’t exist – especially not for $525.

Can you think of a reason to wear these readers?  What weather conditions would you need?  Hot for the peep toes or cold for the fur?  If you can think of a suitable time to wear these, please let us know.  And if you want to buy them, they are available at Shopbop.

    I think today’s designers have too much free time and not enough creativity. Cuz this is just strange.

    Considering that I see young women wearing Uggs when it is warm out (over 60 degrees F), maybe there is a market for ugly, fur covered, peep toes.

    I think I’ve finally figured out where to wear these kinds of items – Los Angeles!

    I had the opportunity to spend a week there on vacation (what a great city!) and the temperature was about 15-17 during the day, but would get down to 12 at night. Being from snowy Canada, my husband and I tended to wear short sleeved tops with a light jacket for the cooler evenings. The locals wore toques, scarves, gloves and wool coats.

    So maybe these boots would be perfect for that kind of weather where it’s a bit too chilly for strappy sandals, but too warm for fur-lined boots?

    So cute – shoes pretending to be pets. You don’t wear them, you love and play with them regardless of the weather.

    Maybe it’s a “shave it yourself” DIY project?

    Sexy polar bear costume? Or some kind of cavewoman ensemble perhaps?
