Buffalo shoes and the unholy alliance of food and feet

Buffalo flatform shoes with food images

All styles available at Schuh

We don’t know about you, but we just can’t think about food without also thinking about feet, can you?

Oh no, wait: yes we can. In fact, feet are pretty much the LAST thing we want to think about in connection with food. Come to think of it, feet are one of the last things we want to think about AT ALL, because let’s face it: feet are pretty gross, aren’t they? (Quick aside to all the foot fetishes who comment on our Instagram and email asking for foot photos: you don’t have to answer that one…)

Shoe brand Buffalo want you to make a connection between food and feet, folks. So much so, in fact, that they’ve created a small collection of flatform shoes, all covered with realistic food photographs. Burgers. Donuts. Smarties. Add them to a flatform, and what do you get? You get a foodform. Let’s hope this isn’t a trend that’s going to catch on, because we honestly didn’t think flatforms could get an uglier, and yet here we are!

Are these crimes of fashion, though? We’d say they are, although we have to caveat that with the admission that we think ALL flatforms are crimes of fashion, without exception. Mostly because they make your feet look look this:

We can actually sense the words “quirky”, “edgy” and “fun” getting ready to spill out of people’s keyboards, however, so if you’d like to speak up in defence of these, the jury are ready to hear from you now. We’d also like to hear what you’d wear with these, though: we reckon the fist pair would look amazing with this outfit from last year* – what do you think?

What DO you wear with foodforms? Anyone? Anyone at all?

(*No we don’t.)
