Not to mention every other high-fashion Teva (HAHAHAHAHAHAHA) being shoved down our throats this time of year.

Do Not Want: Hideous & Expensive Teva-Esque Sandals Are In For Spring

When I look out the window right now, I see snow blanketing New York City, further sign that Punxsutawney Phil wasn’t joking when he saw his shadow and predicted four more months of winter. And while I am longing for the warmer temperatures of spring, one thing is giving me pause. The fact that, according to…

Oh, Come On: These Molaro Shoes Have Got To Be Kidding Me

Look at this model. It’s like she’s saying, “I’m a sad, sexy clown! I’m a pouty mime!” Plus, she’s got these stupid platform shoes-cum-skis on her feet. And yes, the models were required to somehow get down the runway in these monsters. Gianni Molaro — the wizard behind these looks — exhibited his collection a…

Do Not Want: These Celine Mink Heels Are Freaking Me Out!

These Celine mink heels are from the brand’s Spring/Summer 2013 collection — and they are giving me the major creeps. Designed, apparently, out of Muppets the designers trapped and killed, these heels come in an array of blinding hues. Celine designer Phebe Philo doesn’t usually go so extremely, crazily wrong, but these heels are offensive…

Do Not Want: Armed And Dangerous Hoof Shoes

I don’t know anything about the story behind these shoes, but I do know that this picture makes an extremely compelling argument for gun control and veganism.  [Cheezburger]…

Shailene Woodley Wears Five-Toed Running Shoes To Golden Globes After Party

Shailene Woodley, one of my best dressed picks from last night’s Golden Globes. decided to dress down for the after parties. Well, she dressed down her feet anyway. Woodley — who stars in Best Picture winner, “The Descendants” — changed from her Marchesa frock into a black gown … and then put on a pair…

Do Not Want: Miista Mesh Toehold Boot

I’ve seen and worn some really ugly shoes in my lifetime, namely a pair of cheetah-print velour space boot-looking things. But I was 19 and am now blaming youth for that fashion blunder. Who or what will Miista blame for its hideous Mesh Toehold Boot? I’m not sure which offends me more, the toe stra…

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/highto…

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…

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…

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…

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…

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
