    • MaggieMae

      Nay. MAYBE, just maybe, if we switch some of those to a chunky heel. But that material for that type of wedge looks unbalanced.

    • @Biting Panda

      NAY. Do I even want to know how much these monstrosities cost?

      • Jessica Freeman

        No. No you do not.

      • demidaemon

        Probably not, since it looks like each pair took five dollars to make. At most.

        • myandyleigh

          They do look incredibly cheap, and godawful ugly on top of it. If I were inclined to ruin my feet and knees, which I’m not, it wouldn’t be with any of these monstrosities.

          • demidaemon

            AS it should be. Save your feet for the pretty and comfortable, I say.

        • MoHub

          They have Payless written all over them.

      • ChaquitaPhilly

        If you have to ask…

    • Introspective

      fugly and hurtful?

      No. hell fucking no.

      • ScarlettHarlot

        Right on!

    • Emily Smith

      Huh. One of them looks like they raided someones lego box.

      • gabbilevy

        I was thinking “Erector Set Super Footwear Construction Collection”

        • Emily Smith

          Oh yes, very erector set.

      • barbarienne

        First thing I thought. My fingers are itching to get Legos and stick them to the sides of some of these. Which in some cases might improve them.

      • YoungSally

        Cheese legos

      • what not

        Connect Four!

        • kimmeister

          That’s exactly what I got.

      • GeoDiva

        Legos! I was thinking the same thing… especially since the Lego Movie is so popular. “Everything is Awesome!”

      • makeityourself

        Yes, and it immediately reminded me of how many times I stepped on my son’s Legos while walking through his room in the dark. Those things hurt like a bitch, and if you’ve done it you know what I mean.

        So, no. I don’t like the shoes.

    • Betsy

      Ouch. No.

      • Dam_Angel

        All I see are unmanicured toes and tortured sore feet.

    • your face

      Were these made with a 3-D printer? NAY.

    • MoHub

      Who hates women’s feet? Prada does!

      • leahpapa

        26 bones + 33 joints + 1 Italian designer’s sophomoric disregard for physics = I’m sorry, ma’am, your plan doesn’t cover that kind of podiatric therapy.

    • Nancer

      These shoes are a crime against women’s feet! And they are also really, truly, deeply ugly.

    • Claudia Fernandes

      Well, first thought in Nay, but thinking about this spring+summer, these are a little better

    • SayWhaaatNow

      LEGOs partnership with Prada.

      • Farthingale

        And the movie “Metropolis”.

        • Constant Reader

          I saw that too! In fact, the metallic Art-Deco-y T-strap shoes are the only ones I like (#7 and #13).

          • Eclectic Mayhem

            I came here to say that exact same thing. *high five*

    • Capt. Renault

      Meccano. Neat.

      • Eclectic Mayhem


        Oh and for the US Bitter Kittens I offer this UK/US translation service *clears throat*

        Meccano = Erector Set.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      Kinda love some of those. Not gonna lie. . .

      • marlie

        You would. 😉

        • Sara Brams-Miller

          Hah. Come on now. You know I’d rock a few of those silvery sandals.

          • marlie

            Fortunately for you, they’re the only ones that I even remotely like.

    • luludexter

      no no no

    • Alicia

      NAY – both hideous and very uncomfy-looking.

      • ConnieBV

        And the SMELL. No.

    • LilyVanessi

      Not in a million years. Particularly in shoes, I’m all for a little pain with beauty, but these just look painful without the redeeming quality of being interesting or sexy or remotely cute. Big ol’ NAY.

    • SugarSnap108

      I have a sudden, overwhelming desire to play Connect Four.

      • Farthingale

        At least tithe re would be a redeeming quality–diversion!

      • zuzu

        Pretty sneaky, sis.

    • marlie

      Some of these are sort of interesting, but there’s a whole lot of WTFery, too. Overall, the whole collection is a NAY.

    • Loramir

      A very hearty NAY. Hideous.

    • decormaven

      I get a Flash Gordon vibe from these. Nay, because these are bit too editorial.

    • Jaeda Laurez

      The opentoed black and gold sandals, i really like. But a lot of these, as has been mentioned, look like Lego pieces, or Connect 4 grids. No ma’am. Not for Prada money, that’s for darn sure.

    • suzq

      High heeled Lego Crocs! A big, fat no. Even the toes are trying to make their escape from one pair….

      • Gatto Nero

        The too-small ones on the model’s feet are killing me.

        • SewingSiren

          That puts me in mind of women from my grandmother’s era. They always wore their shoes too small. Having small feet must have been a very big deal, because they wore these really tight small shoes even into old age.

          • Farthingale


          • Gatto Nero

            Yes. And my grandmothers and aunts had the deformed feet to prove it.

          • myandyleigh

            It was a thing to have tiny feet, as well as hands and waists. The waists were cinched so you couldn’t breath, the shoes were as tiny as possible and gloves were deployed to disguise large hands. Women were supposed to be dainty little pieces of fluff.

            • SewingSiren

              Well my grandmothers were expected to work hard , and they did (harder than my grandfathers by my reckoning) .
              But they wore those damned tiny shoes while doing it. Maybe that’s why one of them was so grouchy.

    • SewingSiren

      I wouldn’t pay a designer price for these because they will be dated in a season, but at a Target price point, why not?

    • Anna

      The Lego Room of Pain for your feet. Just brutal. NAY.

    • Michele

      Nay! They all look so painful and the first couple look like they were inspired by The Lego Movie!

    • Kathy

      Just say no.

    • Farthingale

      When the foot model’s feet look ugly, you know the shoes are bad.

    • Jessica Freeman

      I love me a wedge, but I hate every one of these. Nay.

    • amanda siegelson

      haven’t we been told time and again how wedges are defiantly ‘unsexy’? well, these definitely prove that point. NAY i say!

    • Coolekat

      Those are some tortured looking feet splaying out of those ugly shoes. Looks like random seen on the street shots.

    • Therese Bohn

      Nay. Is this the LEGO collection? I see a lot of broken ankles happening.

    • Cindy Bartlett Zigler

      Hell no! I feel sorry for the poor model’s feet – they must’ve been killing them after the show. The lego look ones look cheap. The rest look like they’re made of plastic. And I’ll bet none of them will cost less that $1000 a pair.

    • ChelseaNH

      It looks like somebody was inspired by some of the uglier industrial architectural movements. Although there are brief flashes of art deco/Chrysler building that are almost tolerable.

    • RedRaven617

      Some of those shoes looked like Crocs to me.

    • KinoEye

      My feet hurt just looking at these. Clunky, industrial, and not at all appealing.

    • Nicole Little

      Okay strappy bits but cheapo heels.

    • LipstickForPigs

      Well, they do not resemble loaves of bread. This is good. However, while I like wedges and I like Wellies, I do NOT like wedge/wellies. I do like a couple of the metalics. But some of the naked across the toe styles look really painful.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      Looks like an Etsy shoe craft project…with couture prices…NAY

    • sugarkane105

      Inspired by The Lego Movie, or cheese graters? YOU decide!

    • Crystal

      these are like torture devices.


    • Becca M.

      YAY. I flipping LOVE wedges, so happy to see wedges on the runway instead of the usual stripper heels which are impossible to wear. These are all kind of cute, but I get why the metallic lego vibe doesn’t work for everyone

    • Nancy Marion

      Pegboard Lego circuitboard Tron sneaker heels. Nope.

    • Danielle


    • RuthGo

      I like the look of the heels but the straps on so many of them are so thin that all I can think is how deep the grooves must be on the poor models’ feet. I think it’s a nay.

    • padma sallah

      Nobody should wear legos on their feet. Also, these look flatout painful. And unwieldy. NAY.

    • Jean Genetic

      Um, don’t they have shoe models with attractive feet?

    • B_C_J

      They just don’t look very pretty to me. NAY

    • mary mary quite contrary

      they look soooo painful

    • ImpertinentVixen

      Just duct tape Legos to your feet. Less expensive, just as uncomfortable and ugly.

    • xmixiex

      I like the metal ones, definitely not the plastic.

      Most of them are very unflattering.

    • Denise Rambo

      OMG … NAY NAY a THOUSAND times NAY!

    • greyeraven

      Hate, hate, hate that squished toe box on some of those shoes! The rest? Meh….they are OK, but look plastic and cheap overall.

    • Call me Bee

      Look, Ma! I made my shoe wedges outta Legos!!

    • NurseEllen

      It’s easy to refrain from commenting on feet when the shoes themselves are so ugly that that grab all the attention. These shoes are awful in every way. Even if I could afford them, I wouldn’t purchase them. Yuckola.

    • Josefina Madariaga Suárez

      MAYBE to the ones with the metalic heel, NAY to the rest.

    • AwesomeJen

      Some are ok, but some…whut??? No woman wants her toes to look like a satin chisel!

    • xmixiex

      As for how horribly painful and unflattering these look, they CLEARLY don’t fit the models- they probably just brought them all to the show in a 7 and shoved everyone into them… Which is about as stupid as the clothes all being a 0/2.

    • Maryanne525

      I suddenly feel the overwhelming desire to play Tetris. Nay.

    • NMMagpie

      The Lego Movie inspires a shoe line.

      • Judy_J

        I should have read your post before I commented. I thought the exact same thing. Legos.

    • jed1170

      NAY!! Toes should never hang off the front of the shoe…ever! And the pitch looks way too far forward- they’d be impossible to walk in.

      • Gatto Nero

        The shoes are too small for the models in some cases. Awful.

        • jed1170

          If you look at the last yellow pair there is room at the back, the shoe is badly designed with nothing keeping the toes from sliding forward. There are definitely some that should have sized up, but I’m not sure that it would have kept their toes in place. Nothing flattering about any of them.

    • queeniethebold

      i’m probably an outlier on this, but i have always hated wedge shoes — all wedge shoes, no exceptions. i think they’re hideous, full stop. Have never seen a pair that appeared (to me) to be flattering, even on the prettiest legs/feet.

      These, though, are even a step (ha ha) below that low bar. Just horrendous.

    • PastryGoddess

      YEA, but I love a wedge shoe and these make my heart go pitter pat

      • demidaemon

        I think you might be the sole YEA here. And, for that, I salute you in your solidarity.

        • PastryGoddess

          More shoes for me :)

          • demidaemon

            Hope you are independently wealthy! 😉

      • alyce1213

        You’re not alone, I love wedges and bizarro shoes, but I think these wedges are too steep for reality.

        • PastryGoddess

          Nah, I have some that tall.

          • alyce1213

            I admire that. I should have said MY reality. Back in the day, I could, but no more — achy shins.

    • Judy_J

      Looks like they were heavily influenced by the Lego movie.

    • SusiePamudji


    • Julie Chase

      I hate every single one of these.

    • Blair Sylvester

      Painful and ugly so nay. One or the other I always say

    • amanda d

      I think conditional yay – only the metallics. The primary colours, while very Prada, lean too far into costume for my taste.

    • Daisy Walker

      I would like these on a shelf, as works of art. On actual feet, even in the right size (which few of these are), they look painful.

      • Gatto Nero

        That’s it. A few of them work conceptually, but not as actual footwear.

    • rebeemoon

      Some of the ugliest, bone-crunching, toe-numbing, back injury-producing things I have ever seen.

    • barbarienne

      OT1H, I’m glad they’re not all pointy. OTOH, that thing where some of the closed toes are sloping down at the front (e.g., the last one)? WTF is that? They’re like little garden tools. Are these for edging your lawn?

    • Miss Ruth

      I’m getting a distinctly Fisher-Price vibe here.

    • AC Simons

      First reaction: kids toys – Legos and Bob the Builder.

    • Janet B

      I am supposed to believe these are going to be purchased and worn by real women?

    • lalahartma


    • Sarah Milburn

      Nope. The white wedges look like Barbie shoes and I have an overwhelming urge to put them in my mouth.

    • BayTampaBay

      FUGLY! The look like Lego shoes!

    • Skippymom1

      NAY. So many of them look as tho’ they were made from Legos.

    • IMNAngryLiberal

      It is rare that I see a shoe collection where there isn’t at least one pair that I would buy, but here it is!

    • Alyssa

      Nay to the collection. The only ones I like are photo 14…silver strappy sandals where the Connect4 board heel is silver, and looks much better that way.

      • Gatto Nero

        Yes — that’s the only one that halfway works (as a design concept if nothing else. I can’t imagine wearing them).
        Overall these are horrendous.

    • random_poster

      Nay. They look like they’re made of the same plastic as Solo cups.

    • Aidan B

      I just can’t get over how many models are wearing shoes that are OBVIOUSLY too small for them. Is this a normal practice that I’d never noticed before? Also, Nay.

      • Gatto Nero

        It’s painful to see, isn’t it?

    • Victoria Anzalone


    • Imasewsure

      NAY they all look really cheap although I do respond a bit to the Studio 54ishness of it all

    • DKBB

      NAY. They all look like something built from lego kits…and they look bloody uncomfortable.

    • Lilithcat

      LEGO™ shoes!

    • Mrs. C

      I read the headline and thought “nay”, then I scrolled down to the pictures and– it’s like I’m psychic or something.

    • clatie

      Nay. Look like weird toys.

    • Lori


    • KayEmWhy

      No way

    • Synnae

      I’m the odd one out here, and my feet have just filed for divorce, but I really like the yellow with the black wedge and the all-silver one with the punctured wedge. The fit looks horrendous on all of them though (regardless of whether the shoe is too small, what they did bring? EU 38?)

      BTW wedge versus heels debate: it is all about fit. I have 4,5″ stilletto booties made by Dr Martens (!) which are comfortabe and cobblestone (!) proof. I also have a pair of cute Marc Jacob wedge booties which terrify the f*ck out of me at 3″ because their fit is horrible and I end up twisting my ankles the whole time.

      • Tess Danesi

        Doc Marten makes stiletto booties? Running to their website now! I like that all silver one too, but most of these are a big, uncomfortable nay.

        • Synnae

          They did, for about three seasons. Best heels ever. Seriously, all heels should be made by DM!
          Sadly, that is not how DM felt, they cancelled that line and are now back to regular sturdy heels. So now I am forced to pick up stray pairs on Ebay and Amazon.

    • Michele Anne Lenni

      Honestly, the gray wedges look like a pair of sandals I have from a collection Prada had in the late nineties. Beautiful, but horribly uncomfortable. The board-game inspired ones are a total miss for me. I really like what is going on a-top the shoe, but the heels/platforms on those are totally hideous.

    • Wendy Kaufman

      I think the heel looks a bit too high, and look really painful to wear. I am king to comment on the feet anyway–but I bet not in the way you wend to avoid. These women look like they can barely walk. The heel is too steep. The plain grey and plain white plastic jellies-liek shoes are pretty ugly. Otherwise, they seem fun in an erector set Metropolis sort of way. If they were not to painful looking, I’d thumbs up, them–but i ma a sucker for a funky shoe.

      • Valdri8

        Keeping in mind that these are likely size 10’s and up, on any mere mortal feet, they would be unwearable.

        • Wendy Kaufman

          Absolutely. I think I’d have to be on point to make that hypotenuse work.

    • conniemd

      Nay. I really hate clunky wedge heels.

    • MilaXX

      NAY! I usually like a good wedge, but these are unnecessarily fussy and ugly.

    • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

      Yawn and meh…with the occasional Ew..

    • unbornfawn

      NAY. Ugly. The chunky lego heels with the naked feet? No. a thousand times no.

    • DTLAFamilies

      The LEGO heel could’ve been witty but poor execution = shoes look unbalanced and hella painful, a snapped ankle waiting to happen. NAY.

    • Nimith

      Awful. Just ghastly. Anyone that chooses to wear these is a masochist on multiple levels.

    • somebody blonde

      Well, I’ll be the odd one out here. Yea because they’re chunky yet funky. I prefer the less naked ones to the sandals, but overall, I like them.

    • Maya

      They look excruciatingly painful.

    • ThaliaMenninger

      So we’re wearing Legos and plastic step stools on our feet now? Okay, then. HIDDY. HIDDY. HIDDY.

    • Chickadeep

      All the NAY in the world. Clunky, unwearable, wildly expensive cartoon shoes for fashion dupes.

    • shopgirl716

      Trying to capitalize on the success of the Lego Movie? These are not shoes for grown ups.

    • boweryboy

      Prada’s shoes are always a NAY to me. Although these are less nay worthy than usual.

      • Gatto Nero

        They used to be great! So sad and bewildering.

    • SouthernGirlRena

      Maaybe, if they were styled exactly right, one or two would work but just scrolling down focusing on the shoe, definitely NAY.

    • Kim Albrechtsen

      NAY! Those just look painful! Some of those feet had cut marks from the straps…and the style is blah.

    • Sunshine16

      A big Nay! They look like a bad cross between Crocs & Legos.

    • kategs

      They look like they are incredibly difficult to wear and painful. so nay, big time. Plus I don’t like them all that much!

    • VicD

      They look like the Croc version of glamorous shoes.

    • KT

      Some of these are really cute, and I like the concept of them. The silver and black open-toed shoes sixth from the top and the gold and black ones third from the bottom are my favorites. And yes, many of these look painful, but beauty is pain, bitches.

    • MishaFoomin

      Hell nay!

      Who had that collecting of sparkly flats? Was it D&G? Let me see those.

      Also, I do not understand why shoes are made so narrow? Why must we be forced to cram our feet into these? Fine with heels. What is wrong with them being wide enough to accommodate toes appropriately? I just don’t get it.

      • Snoskred

        I want to hear more about sparkly flats too. :)

    • icm

      fugh! It’s like someone at Prada said “hey lets capitalize on success of the lego movie and mash them together with Barbies shoes.Seriously fugh!

    • Tanya Wade

      Lego shoes make toes grip badly. Everything is NOT awesome.

    • Snailstsichr

      They all look painful. NAY. Those poor models need foot massages.

    • demidaemon

      These aren’t terrible, but they sure look cheap.

    • Jangle57

      As someone who would never be able to fit her wide feet into these shoes, I say, THANK GOD!

    • Daktari100

      They all look like costumes for a science fiction movie, a low budget science fiction movie at that.

    • ErikaM812

      All the models’ feet are falling out of the shoes. I don’t know how regular people are supposed to wear them if the models can barely wear them. However, the black and gold strappy wedges are hot. They look like futuristic sexy robot shoes.

    • thisisdavidr

      Do the first pair remind anyone else of the board game Connect Four? IJS

    • Kelly

      I dunno — I like the ankle straps, the t-straps, and the metallics. But I’m not sure I’m on board with most the wedge heels — made, apparently, out of industrial materials scraps.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      Cheap-looking, unflattering and if the models can’t walk in them, no one can.Nay, a thousand times nay!

    • Tlazolteotl


    • Sam Smith

      I know you said no commenting on the feet but this more a comment on the show and the designer, why don’t they put models in shoes that fit. They certainly put them in clothes that fit, but not so for the shoes. Even if I liked the shoes, which i do not, its horribly distracting to see poor feet smooshed into the shoes.

      • LJCdoc

        Here, here (or is it hear, hear? IDK). This hits my “why don’t they make shoes in regular people sizes” button like nothing else. These girls are likely at least 5’10, so they likely need at least a size 10 shoe. So why squeeze them into 9s? Couldn’t they just make the shoes in normal sizes (which have been getting bigger & bigger over the years)?

        • JeanProuvaire

          Sizes may be getting bigger and bigger, but more and more retailers are dropping the larger sizes from their collections. I’m a size 11 (really an 11.5, but that basically doesn’t exist) and I used to be able to rely on places like Target and Old Navy for cheap shoes, but now Old Navy’s shoes only go up to 10 with a few ugly exceptions, and Target’s really cutting back on the 11s too. I haven’t been able to find anything that fits me at DSW for years. It’s like there’s some kind of stigma against big feet.

          • LJCdoc

            Yeah, should have said FEET are getting bigger, shoes/sizes are decidedly not. I’m an 11 too, and by and large most of the options are hideous.

        Because these shoes are not in production yet and they don’t have an array of sizes to choose from. You can alter a sample size dress to fit a model but you can’t do so with the shoes. That, and the fact that runway models are not shoe models AND have been stomping around in a dozen different pairs of shoes a day down various runways is why we ask people to talk about the shoes and not the feet.

    • eight_of_nine

      YAY! Some of them are too clunky, but overall I like the metallic ones. I think the open-toed ones are the better ones.

    • quiltrx

      Way too “Space Mutiny” for me…most of them are just bad. And it seems to be becoming too much to ask of shoe designers to (A) make shoes that are a proper foot shape that a regular foot can get all the way into and (B) make shoes that the toes can actually stay in/on without grabbing monkey-like for dear life.

    • MoreShoes

      They look uncomfortable. Nay

    • MightyMarshal

      I can’t tell if the closed toed shoes are actually too small for the models or if they’re just look like that because of the way the toe box was designed. Also, maybe they should up the standard sample size of shoes. These are all sample sized models and none of them look like they fit.

    • Zeee

      Ick. Serious ick.

    • Jacob Bowen

      NNNNAAAAAAYYYYYY (minus the 2nd and 3rd shoe). Who wants to wear plastic cheese heels?

    • Raymond Dnomyar

      Could drain my pasta on some of those

    •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

      I see what they’re going for, but don’t they look really cheap?

    • TrishR

      “Everything is Awesome!!”

      Looks like someone followed the Instructions for these shoes….

    • a_liking

      I actually love the Lego-y-ness of the design. fun. of course they look painful as heck, but I would definitely wear a “real-world” version!! YEAA

    • Trickytrisha

      With the heels hanging out the back and the toes hanging over the front and the shoes not conforming to the shape of a foot, I’d say these aren’t meant to be worn by humans. So NAY to the max. We’d be all over the designers if the clothes fit like this.

    • Bethany Roullett

      Why do I love them? But I DO! Post-industrial art-deco steampunkyish. I’d totally wear ’em.

    • formerlyAnon

      Nay. Why not give those poor feet an inch of platform under the sole to ease their pain, when the look is already chunky & clunky?

    • Akemi

      Nobody fits in the ones that look like Lego’s.

    • Susan Velazquez

      oh my god why did they force these poor models into shoes too small??? i cringed when i saw their feet go over the edges. they don’t even look that cool to be so uncomfortable. NAY

    • Cassidy Olsen

      SO NAY. Legos and Connect-Four boards.

    • hellkell

      Nay, they look like they hurt.

    • vitaminC

      I didn’t think it possible, but they found a way to make wedges even less dignified. Blech.

    • The Versatile Chef

      What is with the “one size too small” trend I’ve been seeing lately on the runway and the red carpet? Looks like everyone is about to pitch off the front of those things. Ouch.

      • PastryGoddess

        The shoes are typically samples and are only made in one size. I think size 7 is the standard, but some designers are nice and go up to a size 8 or 9. But it’s one size fits all…or not

    • mcbishop

      Ugh. Every last one of them. The only comment I would ever make about a person’s feet is my good God, those look absolutely miserable. Go get a foot massage, and put on some sneakers. Poor things.

    • Dagney

      Not a diss on the model’s feet, but a diss on Prada….do they purposely ONLY give these ladies shoes that are two sizes too small?

      • PastryGoddess

        Yes, they come in 1 size, usually an 8 or a 9 and that’s it. Sadly, the girls who’s feet are too big tend to get the open toed shoes only because they wouldn’t be able to walk in the close toed ones

    • Stubenville

      High-rise Crocs! and probably $500+ a pop.

    • Qitkat

      They remind me of Legos + Transformers. That can’t be a good thing.

      NOTE TO SELF: read comments before posting.
      OTOH: Bitter Kittens channeling each other. AWESOME!

    • Kathy Monkman

      hate them all.

    • Jennifer Cronin

      Metropolis the Shoe! Love the closed toe versions, but would never ever on the toe-splay display.

    • Boop

      Really uninspiring designs. It’s like Prada is laughing at us.

    • kimmeister

      The closed toe ones all look cheap, while the open toed ones clearly are not designed to be able to keep toes in the toe box. A resounding NAY.

      • PastryGoddess

        I think the fact that many of these shoes are too small for the models doesn’t help

    • JeanProuvaire

      Is it just me, or do a lot of the closed-toe ones look kind of scuffed and dirty? Not impressing me, Prada.

    • Ass Kicking Adviser

      Really cute idea, I actually love the look of them but, alas, too high for me. I’m excited for the trickle down though. A little lower heel but with a lot lower price. I think they are interesting.

    • BackseatDriver

      The one on top, I keep waiting for someone to slide tiny red and black disks into the spots, and yell “connect four”!

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour


    • Renaissance_Man_ATL

      NO! I HATE wedge heels!

    • d4divine

      I like the shoes…my concern is that the toe bed seems a bit too short on the strappy shoes…also where is my driver because I wouldn’t walk more than 50 ft in those puppies.

    • shazziz

      it pains me to say it: NAY. ugh- they look cheap and unattractive and PAINFUL. High wedge- no platform. Boo.

    • Snoskred

      I hope they have someone backstage to massage these poor tortured feet back to normality after walking in these monstrosities.. :)

    • Katie Cravens

      They’re a little bananas, but I’m on board. YAY

    • Mona_Visa

      Terrible. Some of the saddest shoes I have ever seen.

      On the upside, they do look recyclable.

    • LesYeuxHiboux

      HAHAHAHAHA, no. One’s four-figure price tag shoes should not look like a game of Connect Four.

    • bringbackbeatles

      There are a few I really like, but those big plastic wedges, especially the gray ones have this plastic storage bin and/or door stopper look. Some of them are hard to judge because they’re clearly not the right size. A few I can’t tell if they are designed badly or fit badly bc they look quite painful. I really like the metallic ones, open-toed.

    • stacey

      Ugly, uncomfortable and impractical. All the high fashion boxes are checked! 100%

    • altissima

      These look brutally uncomfortable. And not beautiful.

    • TrooperSchaf

      I dont know… they look very Sci-Fi. Inspired by Logan’s Run or Star Wars or something like that. I’d like them as a design object like a vase or a statue, but I’d never wear them as shoes!

    • lilazander

      NAY. They are fug as hell. They look really cheap.

    • Heather Neil

      Nay. They look like torture chambers. Not worth the pain.

    • crashtestbonnie

      Yay! These are, for better or worse, art and not shoes and for that alone I love every last one. :) I do think, however, that the solid colored mary jane wedges with the elastic heel strap (I think it’s in white, red and blue above) can bridge the gap from the runway to street. I’d certainly pick up a pair, you know, if I had obscene discretionary funds and a need to wear anything but house slippers.

    • Pablo

      Just when I wanted to comment on the model’s feet, why do you have to take the fun away uncles? nay to the shoes

    • RescueMe23

      Nay! I’m in pain just looking at them..

    • CatherineRhodes


    • save_the_hobbit

      Half look like high heels with office supplies glued to them and the other half look like high-heeled crocs. Forgive me, I just threw up a little.

    • thehousesparrow

      My train of thought was, “Prada, no. Prada, why? Prada, NO.”

    • Ann VerWiebe

      If even the models are walking out of those naked toe bars, I don’t see the point in mere mortals wearing them.

    • enchanted216

      NAY. Wait. Did I miss something? Is today April 1?
