Yea or Nay: Prada Spring 2013 Shoes

Posted on September 25, 2012

Just one more bit of crazy shit and then we’ll get back to more conventional celebrity fashion. We promise.

Darlings, we present to you the shoes from the Prada Spring 2013 runway show. Brace yourselves, because you are about to be overcome by grace and beauty.

The one thing you can say about the standard high-heeled shoe, in response to entirely reasonable criticisms that they’re painful, physically damaging and ultimately a little sexist, is that they’re aesthetically pleasing. The lines of the average  pump, slingback, or peeptoe are lovely to look at, whether a human foot resides in them or not. We think that has a lot to do with why they’ve become a classic and why women’s footwear hasn’t really changed all that much in the last 50 years, barring the occasional beartrap shoe; that, and the idea that they somehow “improve” the shape of a woman’s leg and that straight men find them sexy. And we’ve heard many a lady say that she likes wearing heels because they make her feel more powerful and confident.

But these? We’re sorry, we love Miuccia and her entirely original ideas, but these are just plain ugly to us. Seriously ugly. Aggressively ugly.

Et vous? What do the kittens think (as if we had to ask)?
