Espadrille boots: because everything has to be a boot these days, apparently…

Alleged Perp: Espadrille boots at Far Fetch

Fashion Police,

I was flying over the city last night when I spotted these espadrille boots over at Far Fetch. Espadrille boots. Really? Apparently so. And it got me thinking: why must everything be turned into a boot now? Think about it: peep toes must be boots. Gladiator sandals must be boots. Even socks must be boots. Socks, for goodness sake! And now they've done it to poor old espadrilles, too. What's the shoe world coming to? (Well, a boot, probably…)

(As long as they don't decide to make Crocs into boots, we think we may be able to live with this one. Oh no, wait: they already did, didn't they?)

    Oh my God. When I read about crocs boots I thought you were jocking and then I read that other post… Anyways, I totally agree with Shoeperwomen, there are too many strange boots outside nowadays. And, espadrille boots? No comments.

    You can only really get away with espadrilles at the beach anyway, so turning them into a boot is pretty stupid.

    Good god holy mother of christ. That’s all I could think to say when I saw these.
    I hope someone buys them all then destroys them in a huge bonfire.
