What’s Up With These Crazy (And Expensive!) Shoes?

By: Erin Flaherty / August 31, 2009

We love designer Emma Cook, and clearly we’re crazy about Topshop, but we’re having a little trubs drumming up any affection for these new platforms. A product of their latest collaboration, the shoe (far left) costs a whopping $290, while the boots (middle and right) weigh in at $340. The height and chunkiness are totally on trend–we’ll give them that. I could even learn to love those animal prints. But for that amount of money, most ladies would probably rather invest in something more classic, right? I know I would. Thoughts on these shoes anyone?
