imelda marcos has done some mighty naughty and evil things. i don’t condone any of her abborant behavior. yet there remains one thing for which i will always admire her. she let the world know, in no uncertain terms, that shoes were essential to many a woman’s existence. by having thousands of pairs, she also let the world know about the filipino culture in a nutshell: s/he who has the most, wins.
i’ve been collecting images of wacky shoes for a while, and it’s time to play show and tell. do let me know what you think goes on in the minds of designers…because with some of the shoes, i am at a complete and total loss. i throw my hands in the hair and mouth WTF, because i just don’t get it.
painful to see, painful to wear and incredibly impractical.
the only pair of shoes i've seen that 1) you must remove to use the toilet, and 2) the shoes are connected. (connected shoes usually implies someone has tied your laces together so you will trip.)
okay, as with the boots above, what is with the bare feet action at the front? all beach in front, all glamour in back? not only are these impractical, i find them unattractive as well.
