    They look like grown up versions of those sparkle little girl’s shoes I see at Payless.

    • KES4K

      …and yet I’m still oddly tempted 😛

      • teensmom99

        The problem is they don’t look like a grown up version; they look exactly like the little girl shoes at Payless. I’d like them if they were a grown up version.

        • Farthingale

          And they have an Etsy vibe…

        • Susan Velazquez

          I think the boots are the most grown up. The Mary Janes are too literally childlike.

      • d4divine

        I’m sold on the boots and booties!

    • tereliz

      You say that like it’s a bad thing. 😉

    • Let it out

      Except the grown-up part.

    • Raspberry2012

      I was gonna say, they look like tap shoes!

    • JynxTheCat

      not grown up. Just bigger.

  • I’ll take 2 of each.

    • tereliz

      I’ll take those! Not sure if I would actually wear them anywhere, but I’d love to fawn over them in my closet every morning.

    • sojourneryouth

      I would literally take them all, even though some of them, if not all of them have “taste issues.” Even though I never wear t-bar or Mary Jane styles, I would totally make an exception for these. I am all about properly-deployed sparkle, and shoes are a way of doing glitter that is usually more quirky than unfortunate. My favorite is the tall glittery boots. OMG, do I have the perfect mini-skirt outfit for them!

    • Do you have someone who will sweep and vacuum all the glitter you’ll be leaving behind everywhere you go? Because take it from me: you’d think people would be grateful that you’ve left some of your pretty behind, but it turns out it just makes them cranky.

      • Haha! I am familiar with that.

  • Jangle57

    The little girl in me says YES; the adult in me says doesn’t matter, these designers don’t design for my clodhopper feet but if they did and there was an occasion these would work, then YES again

  • Barbara Thomas

    I love a Mary Jane, but glittery Mary Janes – in bright colors no less – are toddler shoes.

    • jspark

      Yeah it’s an interesting way to go… make a whole collection for Suri Cruise. Doesn’t she have enough already!?

  • Molly Bauckham

    I actually like everything but the pink booties. I especially like the black patent leather with the sparkly heels. However, fair warning, my mother has threatened to nominate me for “What Not To Wear” on more than one occasion, so I’m not sure how much weight my opinion should bear. 😉

  • SewingSiren

    Glitter shoes have been around for awhile. But I absolutely would wear any or all of them if they suddenly appeared under my bed.

    • MilaXX

      Yep send them over in a 8.5. Especially the patent leather & the red/pink ones.

  • sablehunter

    There’s no place like home

    • rkdgal

      MY home, that is. Get in my closet!

    • conniemd

      Yes, me immediate vibe was the red slippers in Wizard of Oz. I don’t hate, though, I always loved the glittery red slippers.

  • Dominique

    YEA! but not for the boots. I really like mary janes (or any shoe with a strap…), though, so I may be a bit biased.

  • Anna

    LOVE the hot pink and the red/pink-heeled maryjanes. Will have to live vicariously through Miss Kiernan.

    • filmcricket

      If the red/pink combo came in a boot version, I would seriously consider selling a kidney for them.

      • Anna

        Oooh, THAT would be amazing.

  • Paula Pertile

    I wouldn’t be caught dead in in any of them, but I love them all. Does that even make sense?

    • Constant Reader

      Yes. I feel the same way.

  • WendyD

    I NEED those gold boots.

  • Kind of cute, in a high fashion way, but clearly not for every day wear. The boots look like they belong on a remake of “Lost in Space”……Angela Cartwright would have ROCKED that look, esp. in silver.

  • ModernDowager

    I like the boots. Not the rest.

  • Zeee

    Bad fashion flashbacks to 1967. Fashion PTSD.

    • alyce1213

      I had a good fashion flashback. Loved my minis and boots.

  • rissa42210

    YEA – these are fabulousssssssssssss

  • marlie

    NAY. All of the shoes (except for the boots) look like they belong on the feet of a 5-year-old.

    • myandyleigh

      My 6 yr old granddaughter would slap a slap for any of these. My 8 yr old granddaughter would say “grandma, they’re tacky.” Such is the trajectory of sparkly shoe love in my family.

  • Glam Dixie

    They look like shoes the heavy Queens on RPDR would love to have is all I’m sayin’.

    • Farthingale

      Astute. But I think I can safely say that Rupaul would NOT find them glamorous.

    • MK03

      I’m sure Michelle would still ding them for not being tall enough.

  • luludexter

    oh God no – these are what the toddlers and preschoolers who are into princesses in my neighborhood wear.

  • tereliz

    The low-heeled shoes were my favorite part of this show. I don’t like the super glittery ones, but that patent triple-strap Mary Jane with the gold block heel is TO DIE!

  • Tatiana Luján

    These shoes look like DIY projects. Nay.

  • ovarB

    I pinned something very similar on Pinterest on my “crafting projects” board. “How to glitter your own shoes!”

  • Alyssa

    My 5-year old would love these!

  • i would kill for those two and three strap mary janes. of course, i would put taps on them but still.

  • Dam_Angel

    There’s no place like home….There’s no place like home….

  • algaechick

    I suppose when designing expensive shoes, one can’t have both sensible height and sensible design.

  • R.A.

    I’m contractually obligated to love anything glittery.

    • Imasewsure

      Me too.. I could see myself accidentally buying these and then waking up in a trance not knowing how I got there…. shiny shiny

  • MK03

    This is some American Apparel shit.

  • Jessica Freeman

    Oh god, no.

  • mmebam

    … Dafuq is this???

  • filmcricket

    YEA! These are so right in my wheelhouse, oh my God. Gimme.

  • lalahartma

    No – child or old lady shoes.

    • Kathy

      Yup, too Toddlers and Tiaras. Though I’d like to hang out with the old lady who would wear these.

  • Courtenay P

    GOD YES to the pink ankle boots. but I think Miu Miu has the high end glitter shoe market cornered.

  • MJ

    Absolutely yay, and I hope to see at least one of these on Harry Styles before the season is over.

  • DagnyReardon

    There’s no place like home, there’s no place like home….

  • Akemi

    My nieces would love these.

  • Only if you’re a chorus girl in a Busby Berkeley number, a Vegas showgirl, or a 5 year old girl. Otherwise NAY.

    • sagecreek

      Hee! I swear I posted my comment before reading this. Great minds…

  • Kim Elmore

    So, my nickname is Dr Sparkles; I love all things sparkley & glittery. And to these shoes I must say, no.

  • barbarienne

    Do they come with taps?

  • muelonil

    I feel like I should “nay” them, but I really “yay” them.

  • LadyCelia

    “So darlings, in this recital we’re going to be butterflies. Glorious, glittery butterflies. Remember to tap for your life!”

  • jkatkins

    We are definitely not in Kansas anymore, Toto. YAY!

  • Noah

    Claire’s: Now with shoes!

  • Carleenml

    I suppose I cannot, in good conscience, as a 47-year-old, j’accuse SJP in one thread and turn around and squeal for glitter mary janes in the next? I’ll just be quiet, then.

  • sagecreek

    Uh, no. Unless you are six years old or appearing on Broadway, I vote no.

  • Danielle


  • teensmom99

    Of course, they’re a yea–just as they have been for kindergartners for years. Oh wait, these are for grown ups? Then NAY.

  • cleva1

    I enjoy sparkly things but I’m afraid these are too juvenile for my taste.

  • peachy

    oh dear. couture toddlers & tiaras.

  • NMMagpie

    I thought the girl’s shoe section at Target already had these.

  • A Shiny O’Connor

    I believe ‘CHRIST, NO’ is the name of that tune. Nay.

  • Esther Ver Millions

    As a burlesque performer, I love these unequivocally. However, they do look like what a really committed performer would wear for her daily errands. Sensible heel, but enough glitter for a pride parade.

  • kmk05


    Also, NAY.

  • jw_ny

    Designer shoes for dance recitals and competitions…right? Certainly not for public. 😉

  • V No Privacy


  • 25or6to4

    My inner five-year-old is making grabby hands for those sparkly go-go boots and wannabe tap shoes — I just can’t get over the amount of hairspray they must be using to keep that glitter as stationary as possible… This is a toddler YEA, teen and above NAY for me.

  • alyce1213

    Without glitter, these are all straight out of 1969. I have a pair or two in storage.
    I can see these on the right girl, in the right outfit, in the right circumstances, so YES to fun shoes.

  • MyFavoriteColorIsGlitter

    I want the gold boots at the end, but the rest is just too darn juvenile…
    And this coming from me!
    (Check my name)

  • JimMcC

    Some of these are cute, but I’m having trouble with them because of how much I’m sure they cost. These look like charming versions of shoes you’d buy in a costume shop. And if they were 40 bucks, then sure…awesome. But they’ll never look expensive. Certainly not as expensive as they must actually be.

  • Not only are they glittery, Yves Saint Laurent, but these square, low to the ground heels? Are for the girl who wants to be looked at all day long with no foot pain. YEA!

  • OffToSeeHim

    I’d want to see them in action before I committed to a pair. I’ve bought enough of these at Target to know that they shed glitter EVERYWHERE. And it’s not regular old glitter, it’s some sort of super-adhesive glitter that sticks to everything BUT the shoes. Once it gets into a vacuum filter you might as well throw the damn thing away, because then the stupid vacuum deposits it everywhere! But I would think that if you’re going to pay (by my conservative estimate) $350 per shoe, they’d be immune to those problems. Wouldn’t they?

  • embers618

    I currently have almost all these shoes at my house. If you wear a Toddler size 4, 5, 7, or 9, I can totally hook you up!

  • I so wanted to yell YEA from the rooftops because, despite my advanced age, I’m a magpie, attracted to all that glitters. But the combination of glitter and childish profiles makes me sadly have to go with a NAY for anyone over 12 years old. Except maybe the boots. Maybe.

    • Fordzo a.k.a. Fancy Mukluks

      What you said. All of it.

  • Pepper Pan

    YEA to the flats NAY to the boots.

  • DominoEstella

    Yes. I do love these. You are either going to love them or make reference to The Wizard of Oz and be a damn asshole curmudgeon about it.

  • Stefanie Argudo Mackenzie

    Good for a dance academy to sell for their spring recital.

  • dashwoodstole

    Nay to all of the boots, and the pink and red and pink Mary Janes. Enormous yay to the others, especially the gold ones with silver heels. But then I’m a sucker for metallics.

  • FrigidDiva

    Love the shoes because I’m a total magpie and love anything that’s sparkly, but I don’t think anyone out of highschool can get away with wearing them and not look like an adult-sized toddler.

  • Sarah

    YAY. As a possessor of 3 pairs of glittery shoes already, I say more glitter should be offered in the shoe department. Hell yes.

  • empath

    they look really juvenile, but I am happy to see footwear that doesn’t look like bear traps, goat hooves, spindley spikes, or any other form of foot torture device that will send the victim — ummmm, wearer — to the podiatrist and orthopedist in the future.

  • Evan

    God these look cheap.

  • KateShouldBeWorking

    Delightfully tacky: Yea!

  • JauntyJohn

    And extra special unicorns and rainbows love for the pink, ankle booties in the fourth pic.
    While they may only go with a few special outfits, I suspect that with those outfits we will look at them and think, “yes, absolutely, no other shoe would do.”

    (And on a second pass looking through them, I believe I hear the ghost of Ann Miller tapping away in joy at a couple of these as well…)

  • kategs

    so very nay.

  • altalinda

    Oh, Dorothy!

  • Gatto Nero

    It’s not just the glitter. The strappy ones are styled for girls under the age of 8.
    The boots make slightly more sense.

  • Isabel

    The Krewe of Muses in New Orleans throw prettier shoes in their parade!

  • Judy_J

    I’ve seen similar styles in the girl’s section at Target.

  • Emily Smith

    So much yay to all the flats. Because I’m a small child.

  • As a (not talented but enthusiastic) tapdancer I just have to say: MIGHTY NEED!! Imagine those on stage paired with a sparkly ladytux <3

  • xmixiex

    If the shapes weren’t for 5 year olds, sure.

  • The crucial question is, do they shed glitter all over the floor?

  • Tracy_Flick

    Words can’t express how much I love sparkles and sequins. However. The shape and color of those shoes is pure toddler. If they were a color other than hot pink or silver… or not in the precise Mary Jane shape. There has to be an adult element somewhere. And the boots are pure Austin Powers. So close. I so want to love them. But no.

  • icm

    Saint Laurent must know there is a huge population of dance moms and pageant moms that will re-mortgage their homes to put those sparklers on the feet of their precious future star-babies.

  • MilaXX

    Not completely sold on the boots but lord help me, the magpie in me lives every shoe here.

  • tessasouthworth

    NAY! If it were April 1, I’d say this was a joke. As Nina would say, they look very “chip,” like something you might find at Claire’s for tweens in a third-rate mall.

  • butterflysunita

    First thought: the designers of the fall collections seem to have all lost their minds.
    Second thought: okay, I love the glittery shoes. I actually saw a woman wearing a pair of glittery silver boots like these on a cold winter day and they made me smile.

  • Lori

    Nay. At least not for adults. I love me some glitter & sparkles, but these look like they came from the girls’ section and are meant to be worn by 6 year olds deep in their princess phase.

  • FancyPhilly

    Someone has been spending too much time on Pinterest. Also, never thought I’d say this, but those are some dowdy looking glittery shoes.

  • Dan_In_NYC

    I love the IDEA of glittery shoes – however, these specific shoes are not my fave. I can get on board with the knee-high boots, but that’s about it.

  • Laylalola

    Nay. They really look like craft projects.

  • RescueMe23

    I could never pull these off. But, if I could I’d take those gold boots!

  • KT

    Nay. These just look tacky and cheap, and they practically scream “Halloween costume.” I agree with everyone that the gold boots are the most fabulous of the bunch, but if you really want shoes like this, save your thousands of dollars and just head to Joann’s instead.

  • kimmeister

    For a costume, sure, why not. For real life usage, NAY.

  • Vanja

    Six year old me would’ve loved these shoes.

  • DaveUWSNYC

    gay disco Versailles

  • quinoista

    Wow shoes that don’t kill your feet and look fun. Yea!

  • lynnlee

    They look cheap.

  • DKBB

    A whole line of dancers’ shoes…I expect all the non-boot styles to have taps on them.

  • hellkell

    YAY. Especially the boots/booties. I’ll take ’em all in size 10, please.

  • BayTampaBay

    I had all of these shoes between the ages of 5 and 7 which I wore onstage at my tap dance recital.

  • NDC_IPCentral

    I saw a little girl, probably about 4 or 5, on Friday who was wearing a pair of UGGs-shaped boots that were glittery magenta. I complimented her on them, because she looked as cute as a button. She beamed, as did her mother.

    That tot wasn’t wearing these Saint Laurents, but very much the correct demographic for all o’ this.

    • MilaXX

      I must confess I was tempted to buy the black gittery ones over the winter. Then I remembered how old I am.

  • Brookwater

    Yea if you are under 10 or over 80, in a parade or in a pageant. Everyone else is a nay.

  • Clydette Wantland

    There’s no place like home. There’s no place like home.

  • Daisy Buchanan

    *inserts Grumpy Cat image*


  • Daisy Buchanan

    They might fit in at the D.C. High Heel Race. Other than that…

  • Suzanne Moore

    Tap shoes and go-go boots…not just no, HELL no.

  • Allie Carter

    Hell to the YAY!

  • frannyprof

    I want these… for my eight-year-old daughter.

    • LJCdoc

      Yeah, I’m feeling an urgent need to keep my 6-year-old from ever seeing these.

  • appliquer

    Since we don’t have any size perspective to compare these feet to, I am assuming that all the legs belong to girls between the age of 4-11.

  • ChaquitaPhilly

    “Click your heels together three times…”
    What’s not to like!

  • LaSylphide

    Very tap-dance recital. But I had fun at my tap dance recital, so…Yea.

  • jilly_d

    Ack, no. Boy, 2014 has really hit us with some aggressively ugly accessories.

  • I was all set to make a “paging Taylor Swift” joke until I saw the knee-high boots. They must be mine.

  • CT14

    Yea…for my 7 and 10 year olds. They’ll love them when they trickle down to payless/target in a few months/year or so.

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    I saw the thumbnail and thought, “No”. But scrolling through, I think they’re fun, especially the Go-go boots! Yea.

  • Angela_the_Librarian

    Most definitely yea! On the boots the glitter might be a bit excessive, but I love the Mary Janes. I guess I’ve never outgrown the desire for ruby slippers.

  • crash1212

    NAY. I could almost work my way past the glitter if it weren’t for those horribly ugly clunky heels.

    • Sabin

      That was my reaction, too. I wonder how they’d look with a modified kitten heel?

  • Katie

    I say nay to anything that looks like I would be buying it for my 4 year old instead of myself.

  • Meri

    My inner magpie will not be denied- I want them!

    • bitchybitchybitchy

      There are birds in, I think New Guinea and perhaps parts of Australia called bowerbirds, and the males drag all kinds of stuff to build piles to attract and impress the females. I think they’d be all over these shoes!

  • ChelseaNH

    The champagne-colored entries work the best, possibly because the muted color offsets the over-the-top sparkle. And I like the hot-pink booties. Otherwise, I can’t see a venue for them.

  • judybrowni

    Tap shoes!

  • Kristobel

    I love sparkly things like a crackhead magpie, but I can only imagine how annoying I would be leaving a trail of glitter everywhere I go like some kind of asshole Tinkerbell. My inner drag queen is crying out for the gold boots though. Everything else looks like kid shoes. Hottest toddler on the block, y’all!

    • Pennymac

      I spray adhesived some old maryjanes in red glitter for Halloween, and wore them with black and white striped tights ala wicked witch of the east (The one with the house on top)
      I’m still finding glitter. Still.

  • schadenfreudelicious

    Although my inner magpie is intrigued, its still a Nay…

  • Carrps

    When I was about five years old, I wanted the Ruby Slippers more than anything else in the world.

    Now? Not so much.

  • elirt

    I had the red sparkle maryjanes in middle school and I loved them! I don’t love them now…

  • YEA!!!!

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    Slap some teletone taps on them and I’m IN!

  • Dagney


  • majorbedhead

    No. They look cheap. Although it’s nice to see a reasonable heel on the runway for once.

  • Ros


  • macwell

    Somewhere over the rainbow….David Bowie is trying to find a pair of those glitter boots….LOL! 😉

  • lobsterlen

    I must be part magpie because against my better judgement …. I always love and covet shiny sparkly shoes.

  • Blair Sylvester

    Tacky and twee at the same time so Nay except for drag queens in Lolita drag

  • Call me Bee

    Oy. I could do the sparkly ankle boots–they could be fun. But the rest? Straight from Shirley Temple territory. No thanks.

  • So much LOVE for them all. They look sensational. Love the Mary Janes and the boots.

  • minnye

    mmmmnay. (but that’s just me, evidently.)

    • Miss Ruth

      No. Not just you. Verily, I nay unto you.

  • Hysterectomypants

    I went so far as to finally create an account just to say a million times yea. I don’t care if they’re silly and infantile, I just want to look like I’m forever on my way to my next dance recital.

  • Rosie Narasaki

    I feel like Cher Horowitz could rock these.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    I have to say that I would so wear the glittery Mary Jane, especially the fuschia pair;I’d be clicking my heels in perpetuity, intoning “There’s no place like home”

  • Liza Ortiz

    these shoes are so ugly even glitter doesn’t help

  • Miss Ruth

    Nay. Etsy.

  • Marjean Fieldhouse

    these are the shoes that everybody will need for about 3 minutes this fall and 3 min later will be on every sale rack and at every Goodwill. And yeah, Payless, children’s shoes

  • Daenyx

    … I normally love me some glittery shit, but… nowai.

  • Hey, who doesn’t love a good pair of tap shoes?

  • Jean Beaton Leavitt

    Yay lower those heels.

  • TheRealAndra

    MUPPET FLAIL!!!! All of them. YAY.

  • formerlyAnon

    There is a fan base for these. I shudder at where I will see the cheap Target knockoffs, if they take off. I am not that fan base. So, an unenthusiastic meh.

  • Jacob Bowen

    Yea if they make them in Women’s 13 so I can wear them…

  • YEA, YAY, YEAH, anyway you say it, YAY TO THESE SPARKLY SHOES!

  • Pleasers sells them for cheaper.

  • River

    Oh HELL yea. But you know, I’m a little tacky like that.

    • LambeeBaby

      I’m in good company then. Soooo loving the boots.

  • Sarah Murphy

    Anytime between 1994 and 1999, I would have worn the ever loving shit out of these.

  • Ginmaru

    If I was a model, I would have been skipping down the damned runway for the right to wear these heels! Finally an elegant looking shoe with a freaking decent heel. If I have to have glitter to wear them so be it.

  • Becca M.

    Anyone else have identical pairs of some of these when they were 6 years old? Kinda creeping me out how infantile these all are…

  • Tracy M

    Pinterest cheap Lolita shoes.

  • KayEmWhy

    Been there done that, didn’t like it first time around. Nay.

  • jif

    Do you have to click your heels and say “there’s no place like home” every time you put these on?

  • anotherkate

    Love the boots, hate the little girl shoes.

  • Anne

    There’s no place like home…there’s no place like home…

  • Lisa Roberts

    These are too glittery for my 8 year old and for an adult – unless you’re headed to a midnight showing of Rocky Horror and are dressed as Columbia – … just NO…

  • prettybigkitty

    Thank god I saved the ruby red slippers from the “slutty dorothy” Halloween costume I wore 10 years ago. Never woulda thunk that YSL would misappropriate. . .

  • MzzPants

    God, YES. But maybe only for the twee set. I’d look pretty silly. An older diva, such as JLo, might be able to rock the boots.

  • Scrufff

    Other than the patent leather ones, they all look costume-y.

  • Julaine Haraden Morley

    Grade School. OK, expensive Grade School. Expecting to see a Miss Kitty label.

  • Badriya Al-Badi’a

    Oh heck yea!

  • mdcoon127

    so very nay

  • R. L.

    The more the better. If I lived in LA or NY I would say go for it! However I am not good at editing outfits and creations.

  • Susan Velazquez

    I looked at these and thought Payless when your mom buts you glittery shoes for the Christmas season. That being said, I’d go for the boots.

  • Coleen

    I want all of them! ALL! Do you hear me? /innermagpie

  • poorellensmith

    There’s no place like home…

  • Aidan B

    I wouldn’t wear the boots or booties but I kind of love them all. Yea!

  • bogill

    Don’t I remember Ann Miller wearing these in a movie?

  • Sara McDarby

    Seriously????? Nay. Nay. and more Nay.

  • jangma

    YEA TO ALL! I want those gold glittery boots in my life. (Please, Santa?)

  • Brian Chang

    you can just use glitter and glue and make one for less than what the above costs.. an apartment maybe?

  • Sofia Lopez Garcia

    Dorothy called and said, bitches, give me back my shoes!

  • save_the_hobbit

    Glitter; my favorite kind of tacky. I mean I could definitely make those myself, so they might as well go into style.

  • Cindy Bartlett Zigler

    I think these are all great in theory….however, a couple of wearings of those shoes or boots and glitter is gonna be all over the place. That said, I do like them – they speak to the little girl/fairy princess in me. Plus, the heels are low – that’s a plus in itself!

  • MannahattaMamma


  • Mags

    …I want them??

  • m3grrl

    You know what these shoes need? Stirrup tights!

  • lesmaha


  • Yay! I would wear multiple pairs of those shoes. I have a pair of Mizrahi’s that pull from the same glittery, thick-heeled wheelhouse. They are retro and comfortable.

  • Mousentrude

    Love these. Going out shoes with sensible heels: bliss.

  • Mod GirlGo

    I love the style and the heel look. I’m not crazy about the glitter, and would love to see these in more simple bright colors. They are almost 1960’s mod, but not quite there, but going in the right direction.
