Come to think of it, I can't recall when was the last time I've found lust-worthy 'ugly' hybrid shoes to fawn over. Perhaps it was back in the Spring of 2011 - Prada's espadrille brogue flatforms. But never did I thought to find desirable footwear from the 'C' word, which in this industry refers to couture, at least most of the time. Laid-back 'statement' sneakers had already infiltrated runways and into our wardrobes for seasons, but the message really became loud and clear when they made their debut from mega fashion maisons Chanel and Dior's couture shows, declaring the official trainer-craze (as if we didn't see that coming). Since that faithful day, our shifty eyes have been frantically scanning when the first pairs hit stores and then our swiped out
credit debit cards. Okay, okay... Let's address the main issue here. I know it was utterly beyond expected that of all people, I'd get these (I'm rolling my eyes too) #BigFuckinSurprise! But listen, if you're anything like me, and adamantly yearns for provocative footwear such as these on a visceral level, how can you stand idly by and judge without the common decency of agreeing that these Dior embroidered mesh foot-condoms are cool as fuck. It didn't take much convincing, and after discussing said shoes with Susie from Style Bubble, I was sole-sold! It's the ultimate shoe that defines a provoker: unlikely elements clashed together resulting in a quirky aesthetic that grows on you through provocation. Eva Chen said she was puzzled over how to integrate these into her wardrobe, but honestly there's no 'correct' way to match jewel-encrusted pool slides now is there? So
just do what I'd do, think of the least likely ensemble that would clash
with these and go for them regardless. I'm thinking over-sized Sacai
parka, pleated Dries peplum top, stone washed denim diapers, and you're done! Surprise! What
do you mean this is inappropriate for your sister's quinceañera? How offensive are my hairy legs really are? Come on.
