Prada’s ‘Prosthetic Leg’ Mary Jane boots go straight to Fashion Police jail


By now you’ve probably all seen Prada’s “prosthetic leg” Mary Jane boots. Which is a bit of a shame, really, because they’re the kind of thing that, once seen, cannot be unseen. In fact, these will now be burned into our retinas for all eternity, and not even a healthy dose of eyeball bleach will save us.

Anyway, as these have appeared all over the internet, there’s not much for us to say about them, other than to reassure you all that these have gone straight to Fashion Police jail. They did not pass ‘Go’. They did not collect $200. They most certainly did not collect $1,400, which is what Net-a-Porter are threatening to retail them for. This is one of the most serious cases of Impostor Footwear we’ve ever seen, and we just don’t know how Prada thought they’d get away with it. Perhaps they thought we’d think they were ACTUAL legs?

And yet, fashion victims will still buy these, won’t they? Still, on the bright side, imagine what they’ll look like lying on the bedroom floor after a night of passion!

    I do not understand these things at all, why would anybody want their legs to look like that?? Perhaps they’re meant for people who haven’t had time to shave properly in the morning?

    These fall off the classiness scale.

    Quite apart from the complete hideousness of them, do they come in different skin tones? Surely Prada could get into a whoole pack of trouble for excluding ethnic minorities from fashion??

    These are for those poor, slender people lacking “cankles.”

    So, not only do these look like prosthetic legs, but that is a rather ugly shoe the boot/leg apppears to be wearing. All around fail.

    I don’t know if this, or the cat-hair necklace is creepier.
