Style on Trial: Yves Saint Laurent cage boots

Ysl_cage_bootsThese boots probably won’t be new to most of you. We saw them on the catwalk a few short months ago, and now here they are, ready to buy for the not-exactly-bargain price of 1,100 euros. What would your feet have to do to make you want to throw them into a cage, though, we wonder? What could possibly be so bad that you’d want to see them behind bars?

Or maybe you love these? Maybe you find them “quirky” and “creative” and … well, insert your word of choice here. Do you? What do you think of these Yves Saint Laurent boots? Fashion crime, or simply divine?

    I like the idea of the heel but the rest of it is a little much for me.

    I agree with Gokarm here – I like the ideas of the heel but the rest, uck, no.

    I can so imagine my toes getting stuck in the cage holes. Ow. Also, the heel doesn’t look very stable. I’d be scared it would crush as I was walking.

    I loved them on the runway and I still love them now. I honestly wish they were in my budget.

    I think they’re OK. And the heel looks like it’s given extra strength by the central strut.

    No need to throw them in jail. They already are a jail for your feet! Hideous.

    No… just… NO! Has anyone noticed they have a peep toe as well?

    They’re quite interesting. But I think I’d have to go with Gokarm on this one – the heel would add a very unique twist to an otherwise ‘normal’ looking shoe, but this is a bit much.
