Style on Trial: Prada Spring 2012 Shoes

Prada shoes inspired by 50s cars

If you read our sister shoe blog, Shoeperwoman, you may have seen her roundup of Prada’s Spring 2012 shoes yesterday.

We make no apologies for showing you this pair today, though, because, well, look at them. There’s just no way we could have ignored the existence of these, is there?

Inspired by the cars of the 50s, with their big fins, flame-effect wings and generally OTT design, these shoes are… well, they’re just a little bit crazy, aren’t they? Are they crazy in a good way, though, or in a bad one, though? That’s the question before you now, ladies and gentlemen of the Fashion Police jury: you can click here to look at Shoeperwoman’s gallery and see some more of the styles if you wish, but don’t forget to come back and tell us whether you find them innocent or guilty of the charge of committing crimes of fashion…

    It seems like a pair of shoes that would be hard for most people to pull off without looking ridiculous. I don’t find them particularly appealing. I do love the color combinations used in the collection, but the shoes are simply too gimmicky to appeal to me.

      Yeah, I’m not liking them much either. Some of the colours look lovely but they’re way too busy, maybe they can be worn on stage but nowhere else.

    Very tasteful execution of a not so practical idea but can be worn as part of a performance outfit. Only guilty of being unwearable in regular life.
