Sole-less


This slide show from today's NY Times not only brings new meaning to the phrase fashion victim, but also proves to us that even runway models aren't perfect. Someone here is in a dire need of a good pedicure.

And no, your eyes aren't playing tricks on you. These YSL shoes (designed by Stefano Pilati, shown in Paris fashion week) don't have a sole. Only the metal rod you see in the picture, which keeps both part of the sandal together .

  1. That is one of my biggest pet peeves. It usually seen far worse on men, who insists on wearing flip-flop on their horny little hooves.

  2. The guy who designed that shoe should be shot. Or worse, he should be forced to wobble along in those shoes for a few hours until he cried for mercy. These shoes do damage to women's toes, ankles, knees, and backs. Women account for 90% of the foot surgeries performed in the U.S. Hello, has anyone heard of Chinese foot-binding? We think of it as a horrid, patriarchal, outmoded form of torture, right? Well, think again.

  3. Oh I am laughing so hard at the "horny little hooves" comment!! It is one of my pet peeves as well, I positively reel with disgust when I see uncared-for heels. Especially when they have large cracks running down their length...and yes, they are mostly seen on flip-flop wearing men!

  5. i think the antonio barardi's were the most impressive of the slideshow - no heel?! i think it's a creative design, but on my feet? hell no!

  6. Those look like the MOST uncomfortable shoes I've ever seen. My feet ache just looking at them.
