Looks like "crazy" has a price, folks. The price is 962 euros. Just watch…

Have yer guessed what it is yet?

(Side note: we’re not really sure why the website selling these provided this view in addition to the first one. Because… it’s not so very different, really, is it?)

TA DA! Yes! It’s a shoe! A HIDDEN SHOE! Also: ah. Now we see why it was hidden…

These shoes have totally made our day. If they’ve made yours too, they’re by Rick Owens and you can buy them here for the aforementioned 962 euros…

    I was afraid when I saw them on the runway that he’d be marketing them. The models looked like clydesdales walking in them. I found it amusing, but certainly not for every day.

    Aside from the fact that they’re terribly ugly, how are you meant to wear these? So that the flap hangs down and trails in every patch of wet ground you walk over, or so it’s bagged up in a lump around your ankle?

    Wow, I thought it was a skirt too and was like, why is that so bad? I mean yeah, its nothing special and looks like an odd fabric, but they’re making waaay too big a deal.
    Oops.
    Deal being made was perfectly appropriate to what it actually was.

    It’s like they knew the shoes were so ugly that they needed a “shoe skirt” to cover them?!? (like a tree skirt)

    For emergency panto wear – you know, there you are, watching Puss in Boots, and suddenly the cry goes up “Help! We need a horse real quick” and you rush to the rescue.
