Ugly Shoes: Mid calf peep toe boots

Jil Sandler Navy open toe mid calf bootsNow you know that the Fashion Police dislike a peep toe boot at the best of times, but this example is particularly ugly and breaks all sorts of fashion rules.  They are canvas, they are flat, and that is not so much a peep toe as a ‘completely cut off and foot in danger of sliding out of the end’ toe.  And making it mid calf height?  Jil Sander (for it is she who designed this boot fail) you know that mid calf boots are hard to pull off at the best of times unless you have the legs of Kate Moss, but making them flat as well?  That was just asking for trouble!

What do you think though?  Can you can see beyond the ugliness and find some redeeming feature in these boots?  If you can, and you want to buy them, they are $395 at Shopbop.
