The Ugliest Shoes of 2011

Ugly Shoes: a gallery

“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.” Or so said Marilyn Monroe, anyway.

She’d obviously never heard of Jeffrey Campbell, had she? Lucky Marilyn.

With the right shoes, you may be able to conquer the world, but with the wrong ones, you’re just going to find yourself spending the festive season in the Fashion Police jail. The shoes you’ll find in the gallery below are the wrong ones. These are the worst of the shoes we’ve arrested over the course of 2011: you’ll find the usual suspects, like good ol’ JC and Ugg Australia, but there are also some surprises, from the likes of Prada, Thakoon and even Fashion Police Godfather, Christian Louboutin.

Take a look, but remember to keep the eyeball bleach handy…

    You remember Venom, the extraterrestrial black enemy thingy with that crawly extensions from the last Spiderman movie? The white “mold” on the first shoe must be its female version. First, it’s white and second, it’s trying to engulf a shoe. Go figure!

    Kei Kagami is extremely talented, because their shoes are beautifully crafted and orient inspired. I can imagine you silly conservatives also hate Kermit Tesoro, Noritaka Tatehana, Guo Pei, Natacha Marro, Nina Ricci and Alexander McQueen shoes? You obviously can’t spot genius very well.

    Remember: Fashion doesn’t have to be pretty, sometimes the ugliest things are the best.
