Do Not Want: Converse Hightop Sandal

C’mon, Converse, you could not possibly be serious with this shoe. This sandal is a travesty. As an environmentalist, I am appalled. No one is going to buy this shoe and then every single pair you’ve produced is going to end up in a landfill somewhere. The phrase is “Earth first,” Converse, not “Hideous sandal/hightop hybrid first, Earth second.” Shame on you. [$40, Converse] Keep reading »

Getting In Shape Is Not Worth Wearing New FitFlop Clogs

FitFlop, purveyors of unattractive but not terrifying “toning” flip-flops for those who want to look fit without actually working out, has unleashed a fresh hell on us all. And what is that hell, you ask? It’s clogs. Plastic, studded and shiny in all the wrong places, the new FitFlop clogs could easily be Crocs’ flashy cousin, and we were hoping that family line would die out, not expand. Would you wear these to tone your tush or is it not worth the sacrifice? [FabSugar] Keep reading »

New Rhinestone and Leopard Rochas Mules Are Terrifying

There’s this thing about designer shoes that we really hate: People seem to think it’s OK for them to be arse ugly and write it off as avant-garde. Well, Rochas, we’re not buying it. In fact, your new mules are so hideous we’re having a hard time even looking at them. There was a seed of a good idea in the mustard-colored alligator iteration of the shoes, but rhinestones and metallic leather? We’re sick to our stomachs. [Fashion Indie] Keep reading »

Joss Stone Should Stick To Singing

Joss Stone is good at a lot of things, like singing and getting tattoos. Wanna know what she’s not so good at? Designing shoes. As evidence to support this claim, we present early images of Stone’s shoe collaboration with Nine West. Part of the brand’s American Vintage Collection, the kicks are allegedly inspired by the American countryside with, according to Joss, a little help from her own tattoos (look closely and you can sort of make out the “tattoos” on the shoes themselves). Perhaps these shoes really are American Vintage-looking and we just don’t get it, but we can’t help but feel they’re less suited for use by humans and more appropriate for a rather skanky yeti. Because, really, in what other world do thigh-high, faux-shearling boots with braided rope and tattoo detailing make sense? [The Cut] Keep reading »

Pierced Nipple Wood Clogs Ickier Than Crocs

Clogs are sooooo big this season. Well, every single pair except these pierced nipple clogs. (Glimpse the uncensored version, after the jump!) They were designed by Kenneth Kirschner, a creative director at an advertising firm in Amsterdam. Normally, here at The Frisky, we’re all for crazy out-there shoes, but not ones that look like they need a bra. Besides, where are you going to wear them — a Super Bowl half-time show?

The Bear Claw Shoe…Why, Oh, Why?

I can’t, for the life of me, figure out why someone decided to design these shoes. From what I gather, they were created in Russia for the manliest of men. I bet any man caught wearing these would have a hard time getting his manness off (if you know what I mean). [Imelda via Fashion Indie] Keep reading »
