Style on Trial: The Steve Madden Snookie Shoe

When it comes to the cast of The Jersey Shore, it’s a challenge to make out that blurry line between fashion criminal and fashion victim. Which is why we’re afraid to reveal that this Steve Madden Snookie shoe kind of makes something inside us squeal with delight. It’s oh so glittery and girly and sky high that it just tugs at certain Barbie-fueled tendencies towards all things shiny. It’s obviously meant for a fun night out with your girlfriends (seeing Sex and the City 2 comes to mind) and not any event that could remotely be termed classy.

But we just can’t tell if purposefully trashy items like this should really have any place in our closets, especially at $110. The cheap-looking rainbow glitter might be enough to turn us off this “looks fun from afar” monstrosity, but we really can’t decide. Give us a verdict!

    The glitter is a bit mental, I admit, but I love love love the shape. I reckon you could get away with them if you kept the rest of the outfit cool and classy (maybe a white dress?)

    Actually, I found it quite decent in gold. The black and pink ones, however, look cheap. A decade ago, I might’ve worn the pink ones. With white bootcut jeans, of course.

    Maybe in gold. The rest just look too cheap. And this coming from a person who would completely douse herself in glitter and sequins if she could!

    It’s not bad; I certainly wouldn’t call it tacky.
    It’s a really cute shoe for a night out and I love the glitter, but it’s not my personal cup of tea!

    It would look more at home in a supermarket with a £10 price-tag.

    I love it! They do indeed say ‘fun night out’, not to be taken seriously, perhaps wearing to a funeral might not be the event of choice to flash these babies… everyone needs, yes needs, something highly impractical and glittery in their cupboards.. mind you, ‘practicality’ is purely in the eye of the wearer…

    I like these. I don’t hundred-dollar like them, but I would wear them if you gave them to me.

    I liked Katy Perry’s Met Ball dress, too, though, so my opinion should be taken with a grain of glitter. Salt. I meant salt.
