Frankenshoes: Miu Miu’s lace-up cutout leather heels

Note how these are referred to simply as “heels”? That’s because they aren’t entirely sure which camp they belong to…

They start out at the toe with a sensible but sexy, office brogue feel. We’re expecting them to blossom into a T-bar, or perhaps just a clean lace-up brogue.

By the time we’ve hit the ankle straps we’re straying into dance-shoe territory – but we can let that one slide – it can make for quite a cute look.

And then you reach the ankle cuffs. The lace-up ankle cuffs. In flourescent, neon yellow.

Because we’re all walking around every day saying, “You know what’s really missing from my wardrobe? Neon yellow cutout leather heels, that’s what!”

If they’re missing from your wardrobe, you can pick up a pair from Net-a-Porter for £610.

    Ouch. I really do like the gold cut-out part, and the black part is standard and inoffensive. I would have loved the entire gold evening sandal…too bad it got Frankencized…

    Actually it’s green, and I quite like them :). There’s a victorian-steampunk kind of thing going on here.
    Not that I have any idea what to wear them with.

    Funny I actually love them. If they weren’t so expensive and by some miracle I could finally lear how to properly walk in heals I totally would buy them.
    I get that I’m probably in the minority here, but for my the neon lace-up ankle cuffs is my favorite part of the shoe, I would love an entire shoe in that style.

    I agree with Tatch, I like the whole steampunk thing. …I have a t-shirt that shade of green, sure gets me noticed…

    I actually liked these – in subtler colors.
    The neon is what makes them hideous…
