Ugly Shoes: Benny Four Eyes from Office

Office Benny Four Eyes black tapestryOh Office.  Why?  You take a cute little lace up shoes and cover it in fabric from our grandparents’ armchair.  You know the straight backed, winged, orthopaedic kind of armchair?  We know these shoes have cuteness potential because then come in black velvet and a black and cream check, and we would willingly wear either of those.  (We think we’ll leave the blue canvas option though.)

Do you agree?  Does the unfortunate fabric choice ruin these shoes, or are you partial to a little rose print on your lace ups?  You can buy these at Office for £68.

    I think they are adorable, actually. I’m a bit of a sucker for granny fashion though.

    They would be AMAZING if they didn’t have the carpet on them.

    Those are so funny! Remind me of a piglet for some reason. An adorable tea-cup piglet!

    I actually like them. I think the old-lady bit makes them rather cute, and I can see this paired with something more modern and looking adorable.

    If it weren’t for the fact I have these in plain blue, I’d probably have bought these. I like that whole granny-style-thing though.
