Fashion Police for the Boys: Rolando Sturlini Marshall zip boots – clown shoes for men

Wouldn’t you be afraid you were going to trip over in these, chaps?  Certainly viewed like this they bear more than a passing resemblance to clown shoes but on a foot they may well look different.  Has anyone seen these in person and tried them on?  And what do you think of them?  Gentlemen, would you wear them?  Ladies, would you like your man to wear them?  Strangely it seems the larger sizes are the ones that have been snapped up first, which we would have thought would make the turned up end look even more extreme.

If you wear a size 41 or 42 and want a pair of these, you can buy them here for the sale price of £85 (down from £169).

    Maybe the ones shown are of the larger sizes and they don’t look so big when the bootleg is covert by trousers?!

    Perhaps the larger sizes are just wider in the (otherwise empty) toe section. Either that or they’re cheaper than bona fide clown shoes, and word of the special offer got out among the clown community…

    It’s very uncomfortable when shoes go up towards the tip like that.
    I’d say this is a case of manufacturing error.

    I live in Tokyo, and these shoes are the norm here (the length in direct proportion to hair height). I always wondered how they get up stairs.
