Strange Shoes: Christian Louboutin ‘Police’ measuring tape sandals

These shoes are called “Police”, so naturally we had to investigate them. Well, we can’t have a shoe trying to pass itself off as a police officer without our approval, can we?

As far as our approval goes, however, we’re just not sure whether to grant it in this case, so we’re turning to you, our readers. These are by Christian Louboutin, they’re made to look like a measuring tape cunningly would around your feet and ankles and if you’re at all paranoid about the size of your ankles, we’d venture to suggest they’re probably not for you, although we suspect M. Louboutin may be making a wry comment on fashion’s obsession with size, here.

All the same, what do you think of these? And, more to the point, would you spent $795 on them? If you would, click here to buy them from Neiman Marcus.

    I like them but couldn’t/would’t spend $795 on them! I would’ve thought that crime scene tape was more applicable to a shoe called Police than measuring tape!

    Not a fan. They look cheap and gimmicky.

    I love these shoes.. If life was completely different, and money no object, then I would spend $795 on them, that and more on the handbag to match the outift.
    fun shoes are good.

    They wouldn’t get my approval. I’d arrest them for displaying wrong measurements (since when 1 inch=2cm?).

    I love them. They’re quirky and they seem to mock the whole obession with being the perfect size mentality everyone has today. They will never be mine though. They’re about $760 too expensive for me.

    I love these, although agree that the price is too much for me! They are just the right amount of quirky 🙂

    They are a bit funny, kind of a show piece more than anything but they don’t really do anything for me. Interesting, nonetheless. Worthy of an investigation for sure! xx

    These are way to expensive, but if they werent I think it would be cute if you were a teacher for halloween or an actual kindergarten teacher! But otherwise, no.
