Style on Trial: Iris van Herpen for United Nude Crystallization

Iris van Herpen United Nude Crystallization

You may have spotted these beauties over on Shoeperwoman this week. They inspired such a varied reaction, from adoration to hatred, that we couldn’t resist bringing them over here and asking your opinion on the matter…

So, what do you say? Wicker furniture for the feet, or basket weaving for the “sole”? *groan*

Iris van Herpen X United Nude Crystallization ankle booties available here.

    do you have to be a ballet dancer to wear shoes like this? They look like you’d have to be en pointe to wear them. Plus they’re ugly.

    Makes me think Wicker Man which isn’t right for a shoe…

    OK, what does it say about me that I actually LIKE these? I sure as hell wouldn’t wear them with just ANYTHING, but with the right outfit, they would be SO BOSS.

    I can see them being kind of funky with a jean skirt and a casual top. Definitely shouldn’t be seen anywhere remotely formal though.

    I love them. They’re weird, sure- but I think that is what makes them so nice.

    I thought the binding of feet was a thing of the past.

    I don’t know where I stand on these… I wouldn’t wear them, but, too look at they aren’t too bad.

    I love them! They’re really interesting! I couldn’t walk in them, though.

    oooooh these would be super tough to pull off. you’d have to base a whole outfit around the shoes, and thats never a good thing
