Strange Shoes: Rick Owens fold over buckle boots

Roick-owens-fold-over-boots

We reckon the world would be a more interesting place if everyone in it wore Rick Owens footwear. We’re not necessarily saying it would be a more stylish place, of course, but hey, it would be fun to look at! Like, maybe there could be a National Wear Rick Owens Footwear Day, where everyone would walk around in those Hidden Sandals we showed you a few weeks ago, or these fold over buckle boots icon, which are £855 at Browns.

No? You don’t fancy it? Browns say these would be “perfect with cropped skinnies for day” – do you concur? Would you wear them at all?

    If it were raining, it looks like they would collect water!

    They’re interesting but as Mousy pointed out they could be problematic in the rain, possibly dangerous in windy weather too!

    I’d like to know what they look like when being worn – might be quite pretty, like black lilies or something.

    I can see them coming in handy when you drop your keys…?

    I don’t know, they just don’t look right to me.

    hmm I need to see someone wearing them to decide. The platform makes it look too gothic for me, though
