The Emperor’s New Shoes

see through shoes

It’s an “ugly shoe” kind of a day, so here’s another suspect, this time by our old friends and hardened fashion criminals at Maison Martin Margiela.

We actually hesitate to call these “ugly shoes”, because they’re barely even shoes at all. Or not shoes that you can see, anyway. These have a clear upper and perspex heel, so should basically create the effect that you’re walking around barefoot, on your toes. Which will be … interesting. Also, that reminds us: we need to book an appointment for a pedicure…

What do you think, Fashion Force? Are these the emperor’s new shoes, or are they the best thing since… well, since the last pair of see-through shoes we showed you?

These are £675: click here to buy them at Net-a-Porter.

    More than anything else, I want to know if those are breathable.

      Eww. Now I am picturing them with dampness building up inside. Thanks for the mental picture!

    Many, many people think that feet – no matter how pampered and pedicured – are ugly, even revolting. These shoes will only reinforce the feeling.
