Really?



I know it's not right to speak ill of the dead, but I just don't get the Alexander McQueen shoes from the Spring 2010 Collection.  These are exactly what people who bitch about fashion being "unattainable for the average woman" are talking about. I laugh every time I see them.  They're ridiculous.  They belong in a gallery, not on the runway.

They're all ugly. The end.

A concept made purely for a Lady Gaga video, where it should also end.

Yikes. I can only imagine how badly those blisters would feel.

However, I am totally still obsessed with architectually inspired footwear.

OK, controversial statement: I actually, I love it. McQueen was more of an artist than a female friendly designer (like most American designers) and these shoes highlight the sculptural brilliance of his work perfectly. As a fellow Brit I feel it is my duty to defend his artistic genious! m.v.b xxx

Structurally brilliant? Yes! Kind to the sole? No.
