Frankenshoes: Maison Martin Margiela cut-out boots


The phrase “cut out boots” alone is always guaranteed to trigger The Fashion Police’s fug alarm, but these ones are actually even more bizarre than the name suggests. Witness:

“Yeah, but they probably look better on,” you’re thinking.


They actually get WORSE. And we didn’t even think that was possible. We reckon they’d be worse still if you got caught in the rain: imagine that deep-dish footbed filling up with water, like a portable swimming pool for your feet! Lovely. And not even REMOTELY impractical.

These are by – who else? – Maison Martin Margiela. Click here to buy them for the budget price of £785. Or just save the money for a REAL swimming pool…

    I’m not a fan of boots like this anyway even if it weren’t open toe. they are just plain and boring. but these are hilarious how the lip of the shoe is an inch or so higher than the foot, so you can’t even see her feet unless you are looking straight down at them
